Today certainly hasn’t gone as planned. After getting the kids off to school, I found myself phoneless. Which is a weird feeling. I was thankful that we still had our landline or I would have felt cut off from the world. Drat technology anyway!
Instead of my normal routine, I had to make an emergency trip to town to fix said phone. And in the process, guess what color I ended up dressing in…gray. Gray like the skies have been for days.
So I color failed today. And it got me to thinking about how to reset and prepare for what may be ahead for the rest of the week.
One area that I find myself struggling with is soccer. What should a soccer mom wear? Clearly no one wants to be the mom on the sidelines in sweatpants or worse…pajama pants. Please no! But with Iowa springs, one is never sure what the temperature will be on the soccer fields. What can seem nice can be quickly deemed miserable on the sidelines of a game.
So here are a few ideas for some colorful soccer mom outfits. Nothing elaborate. So when you’re rushing out the door on Saturday morning and need some quick and easy options you won’t end up gray and miserable. That will just be the sky.
