Here we go....
OK, Wednesday's outfit was a reach. The wet bun doesn't help.

I really wanted to wear this skirt today, but wasn't sure what would work best.
I know- major strike out- but how can I make this better?

Sand colored ruffled jacket-Express
White tuxedo top- American Eagle
White tank-Old Navy
Green belt-American Eagle clearance
Tie die denim skirt-Betsy Johnson-gift from Shopgal years ago
Thursday must not have been impressive- no photo to share. I want to say I wore my plum cape sweater from Old Navy.
Friday-Appt an hour away and kid free visiting time with a few old friends.
Didn't get to take pic until end of the night at another friend's house.

my favorite make me look skinny jeans-American Eagle
Black flower tank-Old Navy

Fun coral shoes- Goodwill find!

I promise this outfit was much cuter in person. lots of compliments before my hair fell, too.
Saturday-afternoon/evening with Fashionista
This may be our last chance to hang before her new Little Mr arrives so we got some kid free girl time in-and lots of pics- I couldn't help myself in her nursery. It's amazing.
Back on task
I was channeling my inner Kris from thrifty LA life with this monochromatic look

My first pair of designer jeans! *Swoon*
Bouffe e bambini is having on online garage sale, and I scored my very first 2 *new* pairs of designer jeans!

Monday-home to finish up steam cleaning the carpets, washing/drying/putting away mountains of laundry- and all the other fun stuff that makes being a grown up so lovely. no pics today.
Tuesday-well, let's first take a few steps back. A few weeks back Something Diane Made had a giveway for one of her gorgeous earwarmers. I just knew I wouldn't win, so I went ahead and purchased one. Well- guess what- I DID win. Go figure. After several emails back and forth-and yesterday (that would be Monday) a packaged arrived! With TWO gorgeous crochet flowers for my new earwarmer. The yellow one will make an appearance soon I'm sure.

after a full day at the Preschool, the curls made their way to a side pony. Breadwinner snapped a few haphazard shots when he got home for the day

skinny jeans cuffed again- my new fave-American Eagle
brown belt-American Eagle
gray beaded tank-American Eagle
gray under tank-Old Navy

Love, love, love the cuffed skinny jean look! I knew you could pull if off lady ;-) Oh and I don't know how to help with that skirt ... I'll keep thinking.

Ok so I love the skirt :) And I love the top you paired with it... I would have just thrown on different shoes. Not sure what you have in your shoe closet but I would've grabbed a pair of black heels.
Hope that helps :)
