RABBIT RABBIT

Rabbit Rabbit Top by Letter19Design EtsyWake up, wake up, wake up, it’s the first of the month …

According to some really old British superstition, the first thing you’re supposed do on the first day of every month is say the words “rabbit rabbit.” I once owned one of those rabbit feet on a key chain things, like everyone else in the 90s, but I had never heard of this until about a year ago. I’m not really superstitious, but it can’t hurt, right? That being said, I’m going to assume starting out the month by wearing one of these shirts designed by my friend Susan is the equivalent of drinking a whole bottle of Felix Felicis (also known as “liquid luck” for those of you who live in a hole and have never read Harry Potter). Bonus luck if you actually wear it to bed and wake up in it on the first.

If you like supporting small shops and wonderful people, please consider checking out Susan’s new shop on Etsy called ShopRabbitRabbit. She’s selling apparel and other goods featuring designs of her own creation (including the one I’m wearing), which will absolutely maybe bring you good luck!

{Susan is an incredibly talented designer responsible for the look of this blog, her own line of wedding invitations, Isla’s first birthday invitations and other cool stuff under the name Letter19Design. She gave me this shirt as a gift for helping with her Etsy shop and I offered to tell you guys all about it on this here blog because it’s a cute idea and I like supporting my friends. I will not receive any compensation, commission or otherwise from the sale of her products.}

HERS AND MINE: TULLE SKIRTS

Mother Daughter Tulle SkirtsAs soon as I put on this skirt Isla got really excited and begged for her tutu. And then she put it on over her jeans and said, “Dance with me mommy!” So I turned on Ellie and we danced around the room with Theo. It was just the cutest thing. I love those two so much. I bought this skirt on a whim a few months back. It’s the first piece of tulle I’ve ever owned and it’s a little out of my comfort zone, which is why I was so surprised by how comfortable I felt wearing it to my cousin’s wedding rehearsal. It’s beautiful and light, and I felt a little bit special wearing it. I don’t have many excuses to dress up these days and my style has never been very girlie so it was a nice treat. The fact that it inspired my daughter to have a dance party with me makes me want to wear it every single day.

CUTOUT JUMPSUIT

Madewell Silk Cutout JumpsuitJumpsuits are hard. Hard for anyone but especially for us short people. I shopped around all summer and couldn’t find one that was quite right. Then I saw this beauty at Madewell. I had to have the legs hemmed, which isn’t something I have the budget or patience for typically, but I loved it so much I figured it was worth it. No regrets. It’s silk, which is scary even without two crazy children, so I’ll be wearing it sparingly, dressing it up and down for various occasions. In fact, I bought it for an NYC bachelorette party that ended up getting canceled so I might wear it to the rehearsal dinner instead. It’s breezy and comfortable (the two words I apparently always use to describe my favorite pieces) and versatile enough for most occasions and seasons. Finally, short girl jumpsuit success.

SLEEPWEAR?

OutfitTurns out this romper is shown on Anthropologie’s website under “intimates and sleepwear.” Coulda fooled me. I do not get this dressed up to go to sleep. By the end of the day I’m lucky if I can get my contacts out and face washed. Okay no, I always wash my face and take my contacts out, but you get what I’m saying. I will say though that this thing is comfortable enough to sleep in so I suppose it makes sense.

off-the-shoulder

Off-the-shoulder Zara topThis top is so great. I thought for sure it would constantly ride up my shoulders and piss me off or that not wearing a bra would be floppy and weird in something this loose or that its boxy shape would make me look, um, boxy. Nope to all three. There’s a built-in bra that is actually comfortable, I kinda like the boxy shape, and it doesn’t budge on my shoulders. Feeling pretty trendy right now, just in time for summer to end and autumn to never, ever arrive because global warming.
