Mom Life: Coffee and Deliveries
When a fellow mom says she doesn’t like coffee, I don’t know how to respond. How do you even relate to another human who grows humans and survives without the sweet brew from heaven? Kidding, sort of (really, I know there are mamas out there who don’t like coffee- comment and tell me why oh why?). I really shouldn’t drink coffee and I try to at least limit the caffeine overall but ah those 5 minutes where I just sit and breathe in that sweet aroma of life are pretty much the best moments of my day.
Delivery Box: c/o Step2
So, I think you’re getting the fact that I like coffee. You know what else I like? Clothes. Comfy clothes. I know: shocker. And, especially I like vintage looks. Another shocker. That’s how I ended up with this bright coffee tee and these soft wide leg jeans, standing outside with my coffee and checking my delivery box. Delivery box you say? This awesome box from Step2 keeps your packages dry and safe from the sun (and potential scavengers, I mean I haven’t had it happen yet but I suspect a raccoon or maybe a possum would look mighty fine in that mom-kini I just ordered from Amazon). Now, to train my UPS guy to use it. I know it’s possible because he did finally stop ringing the doorbell, and I only had to threaten death (people were scared to come into my house for weeks after I posted that notice, ah good times). But, I digress, it’s the perfect solution for anyone who needs their packages protected until they can retrieve them (and also makes a good storage bin for towels and bathing suits…just saying).
So, back to the clothes, these jeans. Have you heard me wax on about Warp+Weft? No? Where have you been? They are my favorite denim ever. I kid you not, I spent about six months of this blog exclusively trying to write a post about the perfect denim only to…not. Because every pair I got, went right back to the store. And, I tried a lot of stores. If you haven’t tried W+W yet, you have to. First they’re affordable, especially with my 20% off code: MOMMYINFLATS20. Second, they weave their own denim and include detailed information about the feel of each style (some are structured and others like this pair are made of oender- which pretty much means heaven). So, when I order a pair, I know what I’m getting and on the off chance I don’t (which is par for the course with online shopping), their returns are super easy.
And, the original topic of conversation: who doesn’t like coffee? Definitely not me! How’s that for a double negative? I also don’t not like Mint Julep Boutique– because like my morning coffee they never let me down. So many cute styles often with a southern flare. This tee is super comfy. I got it in a medium for a super relaxed fit but I probably should have done my normal size small as this one is definitely a boyfriend style. It’s comfy though and will be fun all summer as a go to tee and maybe even a beach cover up. Plus, did I mention it’s giving me the 70s feels? I could totally see Donna a la That 70s Show rocking it.
Speaking of classics, let’s get on to the shoes. I recently found the brand abeo from The Walking Company and it was love at first step. They focus on orthotic shoes (for neutral, high arches, and flat feet). When I hear orthotics, I used to think old…and then I realized I’m turning Er…25 (for the 10th time;) this year and maybe I am old. Nevertheless, I want to protect my joints and cushion my feet for as long as possible and abeo is all about comfort. You wouldn’t know it to look at these sandals though since they’re all about style and quickly becoming my favorite this summer. Plus, my husband likes the ankle strap and doesn’t seem to think they look as mom as “orthotic” sounds (comfy is the new sexy).
All right, enough about me, I hear the children calling and was that the ding of my coffee pot? Until next time,
