(Sweater: F21; Turtleneck: Burlington Coat Factory; Jeans/Leggings: F21; Belt: Thrifted Nine West; Boots: Target; Bag: Foley + Corinna)
I had a couple errands to run today and then decided to have an impromptu lunch/play date with one of my mommy friends. Looking back, the heels were probably not the best idea for running after a 2 and 3 year old, but it could have been worse.
I've been pining to mix neutrals for a while now. I was first inspired by the ladies over at Academichic when I saw how wonderfully they mixed neutrals. I always thought that black and brown didn't go together - I was so wrong. I think with the right mix, it looks awesome. I'm pretty happy with how the outfit came together. On another note, while I was getting dressed today I realized that I have barely any patterns in my closet. I am going to check around on the sales racks and thrift store to wade into the pool of colorful patterns.
Okay, I have to give these pants/leggings/jeggings/whateverrrr a HUGE thumbs up. They are the most comfortable thing. Ever. I love them and I don't think I ever want to wear real denim again (okay, maybe I'm exaggerating but they are just so great). Anyway, the turtleneck and sweater are staples in my wardrobe because I'm a sucker for sweaters and the color black. These boots were a struggle to get. I wanted them forever and when I saw them in my local Target store I was going to get them, then I decided not to, then they didn't have them when I went back because I decided I was dumb for not getting them, then they didn't have them in my size online and I was one sad girl. Then, one day when I wasn't even looking for them - there they were in my size. It was fate and I had to buy them. I realize that that was one giant, crazy sentence but anybody else who loves shoes will understand.
Hope you all had a magical Monday!
