Today's outfit came out much cooler than I anticipated. This happens often. For example I thought yesterday's outfit would be much cooler but it was just kind of OK. Today's I thought would be just OK and it was very cool looking.
The inspiration came from this photo in ELLE magazine's October 2011 Issue:
I added the red/animal print purse for a punch of color apart from the pants...
Trench - My Mom's
Top - Gap
Pants, Boots, Necklaces - Forever 21
Purse - Marshall's
Hat - Thrifted
We finally got legoland passes through my friend's friend at a military discount and activated the passes for the first time today. Except it was a horribly crowded day there since it is holiday week. We met up with friends and made the most of it. My friend's husband was there so that was a huge help. Legoland has ridiculous height requirements for their rides then they have this rule that one adult per child so I can't even get on a ride where both my kids qualify in height! So we had to split a lot. My friend's husband took the girls to the princess area where they got their face pained. We got a call from him telling us to hurry back cause the girls were picking out $60 princess outfits and he was having a hard time stopping them! I was amazed at the elaborate work my daughter got done on ehr face. She loved it of course. Convinced her that the princess clothes will come for Christmas but let her choose one pair of princess shoes. She never let go of those shoes the rest of the day!
Stayed later than I anticipated but the kids did fall a sleep on the drive back. I got home to pick up clothes then drove to my mom's. They had invited us for dinner but also wanted to do a family photo for their Xmas Card. My daughter cried and cried when we took off her face painting. But she calmed down for the photo finally!
Notice the 'shoes' in her lap!
And here is the family photo for my parents' xmas card:
