Chic Inspired

So, today's combo was inspired by the chictopia post by the lovely Panama. Since I had a similar jacket I figurd by adding the fur collar a similar graphic tee and rugged boots. Not a bad copy right?

I don't have an as crazy tee but figured my grey one with a girl profile graphic would do. I actually love the grey under the military green and touch of red is nice.

Finally today it was actually cold enough to wear this fur collar the entire time. I even wore a coat on top if you can beleive it.

Husband getting snap happy...

So, I bought this hat years ago for a New Year's Eve party that was 'wear a hat' theme. It is soft suede like material and large enough where I could tuck my entire hair in it. Which I needed to since it was rainning today and didn't want my hair to get frizzy. By the way faux fur does not fair that well in the rain. Just f.y.i.


Here are the rugged boots:

Not sure what that black spot is. Lint? Water mark? So annoying... By the way this jacket was made to be warn buttoned up. But I wanted my tee to show so I just folded the lapel and buttoned it to the decorative buttons on the same side. And Viola! Problem solved. Don't you wish all life problems were this frivioulous?

Today's Activities: Woke up to pouring rain (the forecast had said it would rain late afternoon) and we had already promised my son the zoo today. So, of course the whole time he kept telling us how we can wear our rain boots, take umberellas and we could totaly go. We didn't have the heart to say no so we went anyway. The rain never stopped. We saw every animal that you can see in a covered enclosure but there aren't any. Then we went to the best pizza place (a hole in the wall) - Bronx pizza - for lunch. After a whole family nap we packed up the kids bags and my hubby took them to Grandma's. We enjoyed an afternoon of relaxing (and 4 loads of laundry). Then got ready for our big night... The post of that will follow sometime tomorrow...

Here is my daughter in the rain with her new tinkerbell hat and umberella...

Here is my son being silly. His idea of a pose is his tounge out I guess...

And this I couldn't pass up sharing the Orangutans cuddling under a sack in the rain. Just priceless!!!
