Weekend Boss

I've come to terms with the fact that my seven year old is more "Boss" than I am.  Of course I tell him when it's time to go to bed, when he has to do his homework and to scrub behind his ears better in the tub, but it never fails, going outside and playing basketball always trumps a load of laundry.  He wins every time!  We go to Target and I have a list of ten things I need.  We spend five minutes running through the store grabbing the things I need, then spend 30 minutes in the toy isle.  He's just Boss.

To keep up with the Boss, I tend to keep my weekend attire comfortable and casual.  Sneakers are almost essential in keeping up with an active seven year old boy.  He's so fast.  Like, super fast.  He wants to play basketball, then he wants to ride bikes, then he wants to go to the playground and play with friends, etc.  All of this happens before 10am, mind you.  If I was wearing heels, I'd never be able to do all those things.  I can be active and comfortable in sneakers. 

Skinny jeans aren't for everyone, and I get that.  I wear all styles, but I can be my most active and comfortable in my super soft jeggings.  Jeans will never go out of style, as long as you follow the jean-paring-number-one-rule: Balance.  When I wear skinny jeans, I balance my form fitting bottom with a more loose top.  A tight, revealing top with super skinny jeans is out of style.  To compliment a wide-leg or flare jean, a more fitted top or a top with a revealing accent (such as cold shoulders, low cut tops, sheer accents, cropped tops, etc.) is the perfect compliment for a balanced look.

And of course my weekend look isn't complete without my (hat) "reminder to self", who the BOSS really is...  Mike.  Yup, he's still Boss.  Whether you have kids or not, remember to keep your weekend look functional, comfortable and casual.  Your productivity rate goes up when you look and feel good.  Have a great day!
