My son is having all four wisdom teeth out as well as a small piece of jaw bone due to damage created by one of those wisdom teeth - we're getting ready to head out to the hospital. It's a day procedure done under conscious sedation and we have the best maxillofacial surgeon in the city doing it. But still…it's my baby, you know?

So what does a mother wear to take her son for a procedure and then have to bring him home a few hours later? It's got to be something I don't mind getting bodily fluids on (if you know what I mean), and I need to be able to move around easily and not fuss 'cause he's 6'3" and will be kind of "out of it" when I'm trying to get him to the car and then in the house. Plus it's crazy hot and humid here today.

I started with these new-to-me cut off shorts. I had a pair of bootcut jeans that I wasn't crazy about in terms of how the legs fit and the length so hacked them off last night and they make perfect slim fitting denim Bermuda-style shorts. I then paired those with an old but still loved floral tee with hi-lo hem, my cinnamon-pink Vans, watermelon handbag (so glad I bought this pretty little number!) and gold watch. Red specs finish it off.

I think this is a definite case of dressing for the occasion. Does it still look ok? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

I'll be checking in sporadically over the next couple of days so my apologies ahead of time if I don't respond right away.
