Do you ever think about what is means to “be you”? I always said that I like to “be myself” — but what did that really mean? Then I took a step back and thought about what my me really is. I am a simple, ever moving, busy, go-go-go mom of four. I drive a carpool. I tote a baby with me, in a carrier, everywhere. I am lucky if I get a solid lunch– but it’s mostly just a simple snack, like yogurt, before darting out the door to my next appointment, destination, or errand.
I love style, I love feeling like I made an effort. However, let’s be honest.. comfort is priority. I spend most of my day on the floor playing with my toddler. When I’m not crawling around on the floor… I’m jetting from one appointment to another before I rush to pick my children up from school. That is me.
When we were given the opportunity to participate in the #JustBeYou campaign from prAna and Stonyfield.. it was not a simple task for me. I was trying to select my clothing of choice and I bounced back and forth between a few. There were so many options.. so many possibilities. And then I came across the Meryl Sweater Dress. It was cozy. It was simple and adorable. It would accommodate crawling around on the floor. It would work while babywearing. It would be cute enough to go to appointments to, but comfortable enough to grocery shop in. I could wear it to the park and on a nature walk with my preschooler. It was me. Obviously, it would also pair well with my quick lunch of choice.. the simple yet flavorful Madagascar Vanilla Bean Oh My Yog! Apparently I am a more simplistic person- and I am okay with that. Like the yogurt, I have my kick of flavor in my seemingly basic outward appearance.
