Ordinary Monday and Grocery Day

Off to the grocery store I went today and our temperature today is hot and humid. We are around 84, which feels like 86 according to the weather radar. With that said, I had to wear something comfy (there goes the word "comfy" again) and breezy. I could not decide how to wear my hair because if I let it hang it's quite a bit hot, so my other option was to put it up in a bun again and I tried to put on a scarf. I am not so sure if I look that good, but hey it works. It keeps me feeling cool while the weather is not. This is my mama-off-to-the-grocery-store-look for today. Nothing much happening in this household, but we are trying to make most of our summer here in town before moving to a new place. The summer heat is going to make for a simple mama outfit and possibly more road trip photos. Oh! Hopefully more sewing as well. We will see! 

Scarf: Old Navy (old)
Shirt: DIYed. Thrifted for a dollar a sack.
Skirt: Altered and hemmed to the right length. Thrifted for a dollar a sack.
Bag: Freepiled. Was my mother-in-law's. 
Shoes: Simple via These shoes are made out of recycled materials.

There is a surprise to this shirt. The back part! 

The back part of this shirt was from NY&C that I didn't like the fitting and the style and I was about to donate it. Good thing I didn't. The pink one on the front part was thrifted and I altered it, which resulted to an unsuccessful altering and way too tight fitting. After I saw the inspiration, this is what I came up with. What do you think?

 My tummy ache pose. 

If you have noticed, there are some corn on the ground for the chickens to eat. Or even birds. Did you even know that birds do like to eat dog food? Whenever our dog Spink doesn't finish eating her dog food, the birds would come and eat them. So cute! Anyway, how did we end up talking about birds? Oh yeah!

Lastly, a photo of my kids. Kuya (big brother) is comforting little sister while crying.
Playing outside making a fort. Isn't making a fort fun?
