Thoroughly Modern Alice

Thoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.comThoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.comYou know you’re a mom blogger when…

…you immediately go inside and put your hair up after you’ve taken outfit pictures because the baby will try to eat it otherwise.

… you wipe off your lipstick five minutes later because the baby smeared it everywhere.

… there are food and milk stains on your skirt and you don’t even care because at least you’re dressed.

… you only wear clothes that can be easily washed, bent over in, sat down in, and have enough fabric to cover if little hands start pulling on things.

… you look forward to nap time because it means you can get out the camera and not worry that the baby will pull the tripod over on himself.Thoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.com … you sit on the floor to blog so that you can simultaneously edit pictures and entertain your child.

… you wear bright colors and headscarves not only because you like them, but also because your child likes them and they work as handy distraction techniques should you need them.Thoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.com I feel like a very modern Alice (in Wonderland) in this outfit. The shirt, obviously, but also the headscarf bow reminds me of bunny ears, and I have always thought that this skirt would be a perfect component in an Alice in Wonderland costume.

This top is actually a crop top which comes barely below my skirt’s waistline when it’s untucked; I had it untucked earlier with a camisole underneath, but I think a loose top needs a fitted skirt to work (which gives me an idea for another outfit!) on me. I am not usually (or ever) a crop top girl because I don’t want to bare that kind of skin ever, but I just could not pass up the Cheshire cat! So, I’ll figure out ways to make it work. Thoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.com And now I am wishing I had worn my hair up in a bun, because once I got back inside and put it up to keep it away from Asa’s greedy fingers, I instantly liked the whole thing better. Not that I don’t like it with my hair down, but there’s something better about having hair pulled up with a headscarf.  Thoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.com Thoroughly Modern Alice | www.eccentricowl.com In some slightly sadder news, I may be done dyeing my hair for a while. Lately I feel like I’ve been shedding a lot more than usual, plus it’s been frizzy and tangly and hard to manage — which it never was before — and it has been pretty worked over in the last year or so. I think I need to let it rest and grow back to its natural healthy self. But we’ll see. I am not sure if I really want to give up the red just yet!
