If I wasn’t going to the PTA meeting…

If I wasn’t going to the PTA meeting but rather meeting a few friends at a wine bar that I’ve been dying to visit, I might wear this skirt from the new line at Target, Kima Zabete, with a v-neck white t-shirt, my favorite accessory of the moment, a yellow necklace from Francesca’s and these awesome black booties by Diane Von Furstenberg.

I will, however, be at school; like I was last night and will be again tomorrow. 3 kids, 3 Meet the Teacher Events.

So I am going to wear my old animal print loafers instead, which I believe are Sam Edelman but I can’t be sure because the label has faded.

I am glad to get a glimpse of the class rooms, and think it is cute my daughter can’t wait to send me back to first grade, but a glass of wine with a few girl friends sounds pretty nice… plus, I really love my DVF shoes.

On the bright side, 3 Meet the Teacher Night will definitely be helpful for my quest of new friends… 100 parents, in a captive audience, that I at least have one thing in common: the school. By tomorrow night I hope to have perfected my pick-up line.

I was inspired to write this post because one of my favorite bloggers, Melissa from I Pick Pretty, is hosting a link-up and I finally figured out what that means. I don’t know why, when it comes to computers something has to be explained to me at least 3 times before I can understand… I should have asked my 8-year-old to explain it to me a long time ago…

Anyway, it is pretty fun. Melissa and her friend at Forever 29 (which I haven’t read but look forward to checking-out) invited fellow bloggers to post outfits for a girls night out. I just post this cute button here, and then share my blog link on the Forever 29 website, and you readers can go there and get several ideas.  Its fun to see what other ladies around the country might wear when they go out with their friends.

See the “link up” here on Forever 29

Footnote: If you haven’t seen the Kima Zabete line at Target yet I would go check it out! KZ is a boutique in NYC and Target partnered with them as part of their second round of “Shops at Target.” There are also some great dresses.

Second Footnote: Go check out Melissa’s blog, I love her because she (1) is an attorney in Austin and reminds of my cute friend Lisa who is an attorney that went to school in Austin (2) talks about fashion and her two-year old “Master P”- I think the “two” talk makes me feel better about my 3 adorable but somewhat wild kids. They might be difficult sometimes, but when they were two… (3) says things like “Sweet Neiman Marcus, I thought that child would never take a nap” and (4) has a super sassy writing style that reminds me of the Southerners I love that can give someone a tongue lashing without her even realizing it until 20 minutes later.

Move Over Tory!

For the last two summer seasons the Tory Burch flip-flop has been the favorite at the swimming pool. With its nice thick soles, cute decorative foot pads and the signature Tory knot in between the toes, everyone that wore them felt like they brought a little piece of luxury with them to the pool that day!

But now it is time for Tory to get comfortable in the closet. The Diane Von Furstenberg comfy flip-flop is SUPER comfortable and two steps up from pool side footwear. The DVF sandal could be worn with jeans or with your sarong. This shoe in GOLD has my vote for your next Summer staple (could not find a great picture of the gold, but the black is cute too!).

And why wouldn’t the DVF flip-flop be THE flip-flop for all my mom friends’ this summer? After all, this is the same designer who, when “fed up with the bell-bottom jeans and sexless pantsuits of the day, devised a slinky, moderately priced wrap dress that turned millions of mall mothers and working women into saucy sirens virtually overnight,” **

A good friend of mine got to hear Diane von Furstenberg speak at a recent luncheon in town. She came away from that lunch enamoured with DVF’s tenacity and “take no prisoners” attitude. If you are ever looking for a little inspiration during your work day, maybe need a little lesson in confidence read more of DVF’s story. She is one hard-working princess (literally) that we could all learn a little something from!
