keep collected

can i be real with you for a sec?
i am baffled by the comments scenario over at 21st & ivy.
i know people read. i see the stats, i hear the rave reviews.
yet...
i can hear crickets when i'm on it. anyway...



i interviewed one of my favorite style bloggers, Brooke Brown.
i've posted about her before, here.
i feel like so many style bloggers are unrealistic to the everyday woman.
sorry, as much as i like to look at you...
i'm not going to wear scalloped silk shorts & a cream blazer with five inch Alaias.
i need to be able to get on all fours to find the binky that just rolled under the oven.
but, i digress...
she has great style, and it's always spot-on-slash-no-fuss.
here are some of my favorite outfits she's posted recently:

you can read her interview & check out some of her outfits here.
if you like what you see, for pete's sake will you comment? for me?

I'm so happy to have found a new fashion blogger with great taste! I just stumbled upon your blog, and -lucky!- found another!

I found your blog via Brooke's! Nice to see a fellow mother out there who wants to keep it real!
I have two little gals (2 and 6 months) and I have stopped comparing myself to those fashion bloggers who wear things that are yes, lovely, but not practical for me! I'm a mother, I'm proud of that. I will dress appropriately!
Anyway! I had to do a comment since you brought it up! :D

I'll have to check her site out! I know what you mean about unrealistic outfits or shoes. It's an effort to maintain your style after having children and although I don't agree with giving up any of your likes- you do have to adjust. You think those 5 inch heels are a nuisance now, just wait till your adorable son is actually mobile!! ;)

i really adore your blog. everytime i pop in you always have a great sense of realness. i love these looks to death! here is my question; do you just surround yourself with people who don't critisize the way you dress or with people that are dressed the same way? i love looks that are a little more on the fashionable side and my family and most friends roll their eyes when they see me. especially my sisters. they say i come off looking like i'm trying to be 17. i just bought a full pant romper and i've never heard my family laugh so hard. brett too. he hates it! i keep telling myself confidence is key and if i feel hot then who gives. but am i going too far for my social surroundings?

i love the billowy blouse tucked into a black pant {far left}. just adore it.

I know what you mean about the out of wack relationship between comments/views.

don't worry... people love what you post here and at 21st and ivy!
