Whistle me a tune

 Going cozy and casual today. Now that I plan my outfits for the whole week it has been so nice. From trial and error I now try to match  not only the weather forecast but also the activities we are going to be doing. Knowing today would be lounging around and then going to the dentist I wanted something that was comfy that would not cause me to want to change into sweats after a few hours. And this was perfect.

The inspiration came from 
October 2011 issue of People Style Watch 
(one of my favorite magazines for inspirations).
I liked the first photo where the concept of pairing skinny jeans or leggings with thigh high boots and a cozy pancho!
 This pancho is another one of those super old items that I just knew would come back in style and did not give it away but kept it in the kids' closets. Since last winter I have been able to wear it a few times.

 This is the beret I bought when the previous one turned out to be funkier than I envisioned. Love this oatmeal color. At 2 for $10 from F21 it was tempting to get one in every color!

Pancho - Max Studio (TJ Maxx I am sure)
Striped t-neck worn under - Forever 21
Denim leggings - Elle (Kohl's)
Flat OTK suede boots - Steve Madden
Beret - Forever 21
Sunglasses - Channel

I woke up early actually for our off day since my in-laws were here and used that time to prep the crock pot dinner put away laundry and get everyone including myself ready. When they left for breakfast we left shortly after for the indoor play area. I finally finished my calendar projects and ordered them on snapfish. After a very argumentative call with Pottery Barn over my recent loveseat order for my daughter's room we made it home in time for naps. I went to the dentist for a filling appointment while my parents babysat.
Late afternoon my friend came over with her boys and we cooked a joint effort dinner.
Afterwards we dressed her for her husband's 20s theme Christmas party tomorrow night. 
We went for the suit with a fur collar and a hat look. My red hat was perfect for a holiday party. Added satin animal print gloves and pearl accessories and lace up booties. I even had 3 different kinds of purses to choose from. Amazing what can come out of my closet.
