Rain Hat

The weather is cold again at least for a while. But I am not complainning, still happy to be wearing from my never getting shorter fall/winter list. This outfit was inspired by the JCrew fall catalog: 

I could have totally done black capri pants and oxfords as well but it was too cold for that and this sweater I have on was made for this weather so went with slacks instead... 

These booties need to be polished big time.
My mom got me these earings couple years ago. We always travel to Turkey together so their encryption of 'fly with me' was perfect...

My Dooney & Burke hat is one of the 4 items mysteriously missing from my closet. I got this hat as a replacement.  

Despite my attempts to fix the photos not a single one shows the detail of the sweater. But it actually has a super cool pattern and the cut is just so pretty. I love this sweater. 

Queen IIV told me to lift my head a bit when posing with a hat so this me trying to do that... 

White Sweater - Victoria's Secret

Today's Activities: It was cool and overcast this morning so went to the indoor play area. Got there right when they opend so scored a nice parking spot and a table in the cafe. It got super crowded within the next hour. We stayed until after lunch then came home for naps. During nap time met another contractor for the backyard project and finalized tile and coping selection. We were invited to a friend's house for an afternoon playdate since it was too chilly for a park outing. Kids were loud and crazy but had a great time.

  1. LOVE the hat and the sweater has such lovely details.

    Thank you for sharing these challenges too. I definitely want to start joining in on some more of these. As soon as my remix ends on Tuesday!

    And love those indoor play areas for kiddos...though yes, they get so crowded, especially on rainy days!

  2. Love your sweater, the boots but .... totally in love with your earrings!! how cute.

  3. Love this outfit! It looks so fun and comfortable. Also those earrings are amazing! :)

  4. I love it when it unexpectantly cools down this time of the year, too. The opportunities to "dress up" are running out fast. Once the 90+ gets here I often revert back to shorts (no one wants to see my legs) and t-shirts. Sloppy. Lazy. I don't really like it but it is just so darn hot.

  5. İ love your new hat and the whole look. İ don't know what is up with your dissappering clothes and yes you do still have my rain boots!!

  6. Aww! The first photo is really like a print ad!
    You are one hot momma indeed!

    Hugs and kisses to your kids, dear!

  7. Super cute look - that sweater is amazing!


Love to hear your thoughts...
