Zebra print v-neck top - one of those permenant loans from my mom
Purple Sweater - Gap - $14 on sale
Dark Grey skinny jeans - CLOSET - $30
Over the knee suede boots - Steve Madden - $100
Silver leather belt - Target I think (can't remember it is quite old)
Silver fringe necklace - H&M - $10
Today's Activities: Breakfast with mom and step dad at our house, grocery shopping while they played with the kids at home, Nobel Park (all before lunch and naps). Balboa Park zoo train and carousel with family, brother, sister-in-law, dad and family friends. Dinner at home.
So, it actually got quite warmer in the afternoon but still no sun. I took off the sweater and tucked in the zebra top and belted it through the belt loops of the pant. It looked pretty good. If I wear this top again I will add a tank to underneath. The v-neck does open up too much at times as I pick the kids up and move around.
Tip of the Day: 'Coming up with outfit ideas'...
You can get outfit ideas in many ways: When browsing magazines, reading other people's blogs, other women on the street, store fronts and even catalogs can all be inspiration. Don't just look at photos for items you want to buy or wish you can buy. Look at the in terms of do you have items that are similar and can you create a similar look with what you already own. Or possibly create the look with just buying one item. I get very excited when I see an outfit where I have all similar pieces that I have not worn a while. I immediately jot it down and add it to my list of ideas. This might be too much for you (I know I am way too organized and obsessive especially about lists). If it is a magazine you can just tear out the page or dog ear it. Or just remember it. Same thing with catalogs. You can browse them not with the purpose of shopping but to get ideas. This is not fashion related but I always used Pottery Barn catalogs for decorating ideas. The more you do this, and come up with new and different ideas the more choices you will have when you can't think of what to wear.
