Today is 'loving my outfit' day. I just love how this all came together. It was a bit different on my list. I had navy tights and navy blazer but thought that would be too dark and too structured. Decided to go with my new grey cotton blazer. This blazer feels like a cardigan since it is cotton and love the pockets. It is fully lined too.
I was going to go with grey tights but that would be too matchy. Than burgandy tights was in the running but I have that in too many combos, so came out the teal tights. I bought and wore these couple years ago way before blogging but obviously forward thinking to know colored tights would be in.
Of course it is never cold enough here yet to wear the fur scarf all day. So most of the day I was without the scarf:
So, added these funky arm warmers mom got me again couple years ago (she is forward thinking too). I figured if it was too warm for the jacket I would be too cold with just a tank top dress. Thes arm warmers were perfect. A little funky I realize but hey, taking risks is what it is all about right?
This black mod dress was a maternity purchase but with a belt works just fine. This super duper old belt seems to be the perfect color to work with every dress! My new owl pendant charm necklace went perfect with the outfit.
And of course to make any dress less dressy and more casual just add a pair of rugged lace up boots:

Today's Activities: It was thanksgiving potluck day at our preschool class today. With my husbands help managed to make a fresh broccoli salad as well as getting ready and made it there on time. My mom joined us just before lunch. Kids and mommies loved all the food. Had to go to a dr appointment while the kids napped and my mom stayed home with them. Afterwards took them to the mall for some jumpy, train and playground fun followed by some returns and shopping (for kids only). This mall is super close to my husband's work so he met us there after work and we had dinner out together.
Here is my daughter playing cheerleader in class. You see how I also mixed patterns in her outfit:
She wore that top in honor of my mom visiting our class today...
