My sister recently said my style was very Mommy Chic. Not that there’s anything wrong with how Mom’s dress, but I was a little offended. I’m 28, single and really don’t think I want any kids. So being called Mommy chic was a little annoying to say the least. But then Talbots helped hook me up with a few pieces from their latest arrivals for summer (remember this pineapple purse? well I borrowed that but I need it) and this cute dress was one of them. I’m sorry sis, but if this is Mommy chic, I’m all in! Not only is this piece super comfy, but it actually fits really well. Plus it has pockets! Score! Mom’s always need pockets to put things in right? Perfect.

    I’ve gotten a similar comment before! Truthfully, I’ve come to take it as a compliment meaning my style is classic and put together!

        Terence Malick Films = Pretty Pictures + Simplistic but "DEEP" Ideas. Just throw in languid pacing and you're set. Hollywood thinks that's art.

        I did not upload any of my GPS tracks but keep them on my local harddisk due to privacy concerns. And I did almost 100% of my early mapping work using GPS traces.I think that many germans did this.

    If you were a mom, at least you’d be a hot mom.

    What do you wear under your maxi dresses? Like a long slip? Also, to avoid underwear lines, thong?

    Love the print on this maxi dress but really the entire look just works beautifully. You can tell you put though and effort into the details and it payed off perfectly. Pinning immediately
