Making an Ordinary Day Special

I have had an action-packed past few days... almost all of which included my kids and being outside. Actually, the past few days is what my life is like on a regular basis the only difference being that I was mixing the kid activities with some social stuff, too. So, it went something like this- Friday- drop off at preschool, gym, playground, pick up from preschool, lunch out, swim lesson, dinner, get kids ready for bed, out for dinner and drinks with friends. Saturday- walk in Old Town, shopping at market, picnic at park in DC with friends and kids, walk in Old Town with extended family, dinner out. Sunday- trip to farm/playground extraordinaire with kids, art show at winery, lunch out, home to RELAX!!! What to wear, what to wear to all these fun but relatively dirty outdoor activities at which I needed to be able to run around and then walk into a restaurant and still look appropriate and special? That is always the struggle. Of course, it doesn't matter if it is children you are running after. It could be walking your dog, stopping off at Eastern Market for some shopping, brunch at a restaurant, home to get ready for friends coming over for dinner and drinks at your place. Et cetera, et cetera, you get the picture. The point is, you need to be able to move around, be comfortable, and still look great! Here are a couple of options. Don't forget to accessorize! That is the key!
