Y’all know Dumb Mom loves a party and, like every other red blooded American worth her weight in apple pie, I’m celebrating America’s birthday by
getting drunk in my cul-de-sac and singing We Are the Champions with my neighbors BBQing with my block and trying not to burn my man-hands with the sparklers!
And, while it’s entirely too hot for me to be wearing anything other than a tank top and cut off jeans (with a stylish sandal and a chunky bracelet of course) at our annual block party, I do have a red, white, and blue inspired ensemble to share with you today!
Because, as someone who bucks tradition by celebrating birth weeks instead of days, I needed a patriotic little number to wear to my office on Friday.
A patriotic little number that included my jazzy red heels which makes it entirely illogical for block party wear, but simply perfect for a day at work. Because they have air conditioning. And no bugs. Or kids to be sweated after.
What? Heels make me hot!
Yes, I’m laughing at myself today even if no one else is because, really, who even reads blogs on a holiday?
Seriously, though, America, the dress is perfecto?!
High waistline that accentuates my slim-
ish part? Check.
Above the knee length that shows some leg, but not too much that I look
slutty cellulite-y? Check.
Bright, summer color to jazz up my wardrobe and keep me out of black for a day, while still being forgiving to icky-gooey child hands and mama-belly flab?! Check, check, check!
The polka dot cami underneath is not actually a part of the dress, but I figured I’d up the awesome a bit by adding something fun that would ensure that the girls didn’t pop out for a play during a meeting!
I mean I’m fun, but not THAT fun!
My idea of a crazy mom-gone-wild day is wearing shiny red heels.
Which I totally did. Just ‘cause I’m gangsta.
Stylishly mom gangsta.
I know, I’ll stop now.
Happy birthday, America!
Wear something pretty!
