This is another inspired outfit from a fashion magazine. What was inspiring was the fact that again I owned all the similar items (minus the purse) in the photo, so it was great and easy to duplicate.
I have to be honest though I chickened out and did NOT wear the fedora hat after the photo shoot. Lets face it I live in San Diego, the city whose uniform is flip flops and shorts, and I just felt it would be too much. May be if I was going out to lunch with girlfriends or shopping at a nice mall I could have pulled it off. But too much for the indoor toddler class. And one more confession, the purse was not used either since I had my diaper bag. Although last summer I did use this purse as a diaper bag but didn't have the energy to transfer everything just for today.
So, this purse goes against my 'fashion rule' of not buying faux leather shoes and bags. It is faux but I absolutely love it. The color, the texture and the style can always be counted to make a 'pop out' statement with any outfit.
