"For a moment this good time would never end..."

From the Dave Matthews band song "stay". Not really one of my favorites but very fitting for my life right now.. I only have a few more days home with my little Mr. R.. He goes back to school on Monday. I am feeling emotional about this, as I have every year since he started daycare 2 years ago. I know it's good for him, he gets to socialize with kids his age, he is learning a lot, etc. etc. But part of me has always wanted to be a stay at home mom and it bugs me a little every September when I have to send him back. So I'm making the most of our few days home together before I head back to the grind.

We kept things laid back today and had a play date with the neighbor kids. I decided to layer this Gap Outlet peach ruffle tank with a green striped tank underneath, just to try something different, and because I am slightly obsessed with stripes! I've worn some version of stripes every day this week so far!

green striped tank: Gap Outlet (summer 2010)
peach ruffle tank: Gap Outlet (summer 2011)
shorts: Gap Outlet (summer 2011)
shoes: Kenneth Cole reaction (2 years ago)
necklace: charminngcharlie


  1. This ruffle tank is so pretty and love how you layered it with the stripes!


  2. I LOVE the stripes layered underneath the tank! That's so super cute!

    I've always wanted to be a stay at home mom too. I guess sometimes it just doesn't work out that way. :(

  3. Thanks Melissa!
    The working mom thing is tough, but I know I am lucky as a teacher to spend a couple of extra months at home. And I know deep down that school is good for Robert and work is good for me :)
