Layered Greys

Super quick and short post of my simple day outfit of today. The inspiration came from this:

If it was warm enough I would have to love to have gone bare legs with just tight highs but it was freezin espeically early in the morning when I left the house.

I layered the striped tunic with a shrug like sweater. My mom bought me this sweater during my first pregnancy. It looked great over dresses and since it was super crop the tummy did not matter. I topped it all with a grey hoodie.

Added my 'arm warmers' as leg warmers. For once having skinny legs has its perks too.

Striped tunic, leggings, grey hoodie - Forever 21
White sweater shrug & Arm Warmers - gifts from mom
Boots - Steve Madden

Today's Activities: Left the house at 6 AM to go to my dad's Dr appt in LA. I keep these cozy and simple outfits for days like this where majority of the time is spent sitting in the car on the road. This one worked great. I am in the process of writing very long and detailed 'tips and hints' documents for my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting their first baby late March. So, worked on the 'Hospital Prep' document in the afternoon before picking up the kids from my mom and step dad's. We tried to play this new board game I bought and my son was into it but my daughter is too young for it and was putting the pieces in her mouth so we had to stop. Have to play when my daughter is not around which will be when I have no idea. Fed them leftovers for dinner. I had bought a whole platter of shrimp for yesterday's dinner party and forgot to take it out. So my son feasted on shrimp tonight. He is so my kid as he eats just like me loving sea food, sushi and all things that are healthy. My daugher on the other hand is a total meats and potato girl. She has the ability to detect the taste of anything green in her mouth and will spit it out. So weird, cause I ate the same stuff during both pregnancies and I literally can not go a day without fruits and veggies and neither can my son. Anyway left as soon as my husband arrived to take over to meet the girls. See night photos in the following post.
