With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I've been thinking about some sexy styling tips for moms. You know - short skirts, high heels, the usual. But when I asked Mike what he thought was sexy, he immediately replied, "You know that necklace you have...?"
Strange, right? But I knew immediately which one he was talking about. Because whenever I wear it, he really can't tear his eyes away. It's not that my husband has some strange neck fetish, or that there is anything super-special about this particular necklace....the secret lies in its length.
This necklace is long - roughly 20", and provides a subtle little flash of bling...riiiight there. Right where his eyes want to go anyway.
It really doesn't matter what else I'm wearing. As far as Mike is concerned, I look good. Even when I'm wearing a stretched-out tee that's been nursed in one too many times. (And by "one too many" I mean sick-clingy-baby-attached-to-boob-like-a-permanent-fixture too many.)
Poor Pax. Not only has he been he sick and teething but he got his last three shots at the doctor's on Thursday. You can't see his hand, but he's doing his sign for 'nurse'. You want to nurse, P? Shocking.
We're (finally!!) all caught up with vaccines. With the move and everything we were horribly behind. And Pax is on the mend. After a nursing break, he actually ventured off to play a bit.
(wearing: my mom's necklace...black hills gold or something? Purchased in the 80's, Stylemint tee, Seven for All Mankind high-waist denim, Coach belt)
The funny part, Mamas? This was supposed to be an article on being sexy. Instead, I managed to talk about nursing, teething, vaccines and illness, with a little 'check out my boobs' thrown in. Perhaps I should also mention that Pax vomited on my chest the night before to kill off any lingering sexy vibe. No, to really do it in, I must mention poop. Well, as you can imagine, with illness and vaccines and teething, his diarrhe-
And we're done here. That's more than enough.
Here's to being sexy in our own special way...right, Mamas?
