Collar Tips

 Top: Zara | Skirt: Francesca’s (old) | Shoes: Target (old) | Bracelet: INPink Jewelry

You didn’t actually think I’d go the whole summer without trying the metal collar tip trend, did ya?  While I have to say it’s an edgy way to liven up a plain blouse, it’s not all that practical for mamas with small babies.  Especially babies that love to rub their face into you when they are tired.  My little baby bear has recently switched from 3 naps to 2 naps and sometimes doesn’t sleep more than 30 minutes for his naps, which makes for quite the fussy evening.  Or it could be that Austin’s almost on his way to crawling and they say babies are fussier around milestones as well.  Either way, I’ll be there for my little guy to get through these tough times.  Yea, that’s right, I totally have 2 different wardrobes now… one set for when I know I won’t be carrying my little guy (like at work or for going out with friends) and one set for when I might possibly get baby drool, food, tears on it.  Oh and for those DIYers out there, you can make your own collar tips to add to any blouse if you like!

On a separate note, can I just tell you how excited I am for Fashion’s Night Out and Kansas City Fashion Week this weekend?  My wallet might really taking a beating as I shop the deals and get inspired to try new trends.  🙂  Are you attending any of these events in your city?

    Cute outfit! I’m so jealous you’re going to Fashion’s Night Out. Technically I could go to Fashion’s Night Out Vancouver but it’s just such a hassle to get into the downtown area…maybe next year! 🙂

    Congrats on your little man learning to crawl. I know my older child became quite the terrible sleeper when she reached that milestone. She would wake up crying almost every hour or two all night for 2 whole months! You know I’ve still yet to try the gold tip blouse trend. I love the red, it’s so pretty on you.

    I love your top and the metal accents on the collar!

    I hear you on that – my son (though he is two) would be reaching for it nonstop 🙂 The collar is lovely though and so is the pattern on your skirt! xo Marisa

    What a cute top! I love the collar tip. I wish I could find a piece like that here. It’s great because it’s not too obvious. Anyway, love the look!
