Faux Real

Tuesday Night's festive outfit was inspired by Atlantic Pacific:
 I have been wanting to wear this for quite some time now. A holiday dinner with the girls was a perfect setting. Chic but lady lux and the fur just makes it all very festive and I added pearls...

When I took off the fur scarf I wanted to have some pearls underneath for the restaurant...

People will stare. Make it worth their while.

Monday's outfit was inspired by a look from Who What Wear website...

Love this cozy look with sweat style pants and a scarf all anchored by statement animal print booties which of course I have….

 I have to say I am loving these pants… They are built like a sweat pant with elastic waist and elastic ankles. They have side zips and fully lined. They give that slouchy look without being too bulky and truly feel like sweat pants all day long. And when you splash stuff you just wipe off the faux leather! :)

 Nothing but a 'statement' for sure with these booties….

Unbelievable Sights

Sunday's outfit was inspired by this look from People Stye Watch's Oct 2014 Issue:
 I was going to wear a grey cowl neck sweater but for one it felt too hot with the red peacoat and I really wanted to wear this leather collar my friend made for my 40th birthday… So wore a tank instead!

We drove back from LA and picked up the kids. My son had a friend over to watch the Charger game while I tried get my daughter to rest to recover from all the fun she had at Grandma's house.
By afternoon we ate a very early dinner and got ready to meet our friends to tour the holiday lights this time at a different neighborhood than we have been before. Living in a big city we have many many options to choose from and wanting different experiences I convinced everyone to drive a bit north and East. It was worth it. Although half our group couldn't show for health reasons. My husband ended up being the only adult male but he hung in there…
The neighborhood had some sort of Life size Holiday Card art display theme going on among all the lights. Each home painted a card on a huge plywood panel and displayed it in their yard with lights. Majority was Disney Themed. It was like an art gallery. Very cool….

This red cape was mine when I was a little girl, hand made by my grandmother! :)
