Gemma’s 1st birthday party is this weekend (cue all the feels) and the theme is rainbow. Which is hilarious because one of the very first things I said when I got pregnant was that I was not going to have rainbow crap all over my house. GUESS WHAT YOU GUYS? We not only have rainbow toys all over our house and car but her room/life is slowly being taken over by the rainbow themed decor, all purchased by yours truly. She loves all the colors (I mean what kid doesn’t?) and I don’t mind one bit. It’s funny how your mind changes once your kid is actually here. I didn’t realize what kind of mom I would be and apparently, I’m the “I eat all of my words I said pre-kids” kind of mom 😉

All of that to say, I think that Gemma was my muse behind this striped shirt. It’s more of a muted rainbow, but a rainbow striped shirt all the same. This shirt is what I like to call a grown-up rainbow, a little bit muted, and very sophisticated.

This button-down top is from Madewell, in their Central Shirt style, which I find fits a little bit oversized on purpose. I am in the medium and I tied up the last 3 button into a knot. It’s the softest shirt, I’ve seriously been living in it these last few weeks. I called it my weekend shirt on Instagram and now it’s slowly moving its way into the weekday, too. Between this rainbow shirt and these pants, my closet sure is becoming a lot of fun.

You can find this Madewell top here!

Fit Details

Stay true to size in the top! It fits loose but true. I’m in the medium. Consider sizing down one in the jeans. I am in my true to size, 29 but they are looser than when I started 😉

  1. One – love the shirt. Two – you look AH-MAY-ZING. Do you have a one-year-old? Doesn’t look like it. WERK IT.
