Yep, that’s The Little Guy. I don’t put too many pictures of him on the blog as I prefer to keep him anonymous at this point. Who knows if that will change in the future, but for now, this photo seemed pretty harmless.
We were off to the park on the day I wore this outfit enjoying one of the first few gorgeous spring days here in Chicago. I think we’ve all had enough of winter and can’t wait for spring to show up!!
Some of you may have noticed, but I don’t often have a purse or bag in most of my outfit photos. I’ve never really had a “thing” for them, but now that I’m a mom, the prospect of carrying around a fancy purse or bag has diminished significantly. In my real life, the “real deal” is that I almost always have a diaper bag with me, full of all sorts of goods to save the day if The Little Guy gets restless. To make life easier, I toss my few necessities into the diaper bag and throw it over my shoulder. The bag pictured below is my Petunia Pickle Bottom bag (which I purchased from one of their periodic outlet sales online to make the price more reasonable). I totally love it – it’s the right size, super light, has just enough pockets, and has a built in changing pad. I recently bought one as a gift for my sister who is due to have a baby in a few months.
So, a pretty diaper bag instead of a pretty handbag it is. Oh, the life of a mom…
