Firstly .... Sorry I have been MIA for the most of last week. My 3.5 yr old came down with a nasty bacterial infection (strep related) and had to be administered IV antibiotics for 3 days in a row since the regular ones weren't helping him It was so so hard to watch the little guy go through it. But at the end of it, I am thankful it helped him feel better after 3 weeks of agony (and different types of oral antibiotics!). I just hope this is the end of it and it doesn't relapse (His last dose of oral antibiotics was this morning). Fingers crossed for a healthy tomorrow

So the past couple of weeks have been repeats and more repeats. Mostly my linen pants with sandals and the shift dresses that you have seen so many times. I just didn't have the energy to think of what to wear or to take pics! Finally, yesterday I had some me time and guess what I did Yep .... I went shopping! I found this perfect-for-me plaid boyfriend shirt in Newlook. It's perfect for me because

1) The colors are perfect for me with lots of white (waving to Angie!)
2) A boyfriend shirt fits my shoulders and my hips without looking oversized yet perfectly fluid!
3) The pockets do not draw unwanted attention to my chest.

I was supposed to do a k/r yesterday but my camera battery had died. And this morning the fashion devils asked me to rip the tags off So here it is with my most worn chopped-skinnies-summer-shorts and another wardrobe workhorse, the Steve Madden pony hair slip on sneaks. I went for the super casual easy look by leaving the shirt un-tucked.

I wore this for the morning school run. No handbag since I didn't need one. Do you think I should have tucked the shirt? Thanks for looking and I just realized the first para is just a huge whine! Ack! So a double thanks for reading and commenting!
