Lion Fever

This outfit just kind of came together as I put each piece on. It was on my list as jeans, white tee, grey suit blazer jacket and purple striped scarf with military boots. I selected this tee cause the girl prints are dark grey and they repeat so the design does not get lost even under scarf and jacket.

This cotton blazer was more comfy than a suit jacket so went with this instead. Then realized the purple striped scarf did not really do much. This scarf has tones of blue and grey so it goes. And it also has red which inspired me to wear the red hat.  Converses was much more practical for out activity than the boots.

I tied the bib necklace long enough so it shows under the scarf. I thought it might be too much with the converses but it looks fine.

This hat is from my mom's closet. I was mentionning to her the other day the outfit inspiration photo had a red hat and she mentioned she has a red hat she never wears that I can barrow. This was it. I think without the outfit would have been boring. This totally makes it pop!

This is how I was for the first hour since it was warm. The weather here have been in the mid 70s yesterday and today! 

Tee - Target
Jacket, Jeans, Necklace - Forever 21
Hat - Mom's
Scarf - Ed Hardy (from TJ Maxx)
Sneakers - Converse
Ring - from Turkey

Today's Activities: After last night's drinking woke up with a bad case of hangover. Just as we were finishing up breakfast my mom called and she said she wants to do something with the kids. So, I got them ready and she took them to the park. Below they are all set in her convertible for the 4 block ride to the park:

They came home for lunch and naps. When they woke up we were all ready and left immediately for the zoo. The zoo closes at 5 PM so we had to make the most of our time.

Here is my daughter looking a the Lama's...

I am sure I have mentioned before but my son is obsessed with lions. He always likes to see them first but they are very high up in the zoo so I usually convince him otherwise unless we are there with my husband. So, today we saw the male lion. He was upset we didn't get to see the female one.

After the zoo closed we had dinner at a diner near there. Came home in time for bath and bedtime...
