Walk this way

 The inspiration for this outfit came from Glamour's August 2011 issue:
I used the idea of a pop color fur coat to create the look with my purple one!

  Decided to go with silver accessories with the statement necklace and chains of the purse and even the hose of a bit of silver glimmer...

 Keeping the rest of the outfit plain gives the whole attention to the coat!

Purple Faux Fur Coat & Necklace - Forever 21
White sweater top - Ann Taylor
White silk tank & Boyfriend Jeans - Newport News
Purse - Guess
Heels - Kate Spade
Sunglasses - House of Harlow

And to make this outfit kid friendly I switched the fur coat with a green knit blazer and the pink heels with pink flats. I liked this version just as much....

 The fact that the flats had a bit of green in them worked perfectly for the outfit!

 Don't you just love the hair? I love it when I wear colors that truly show the dark bottom part! To achieve this side swept look I blow dried my hair at night and put it in a high side pony tail! In the morning it was perfect.
Can you believe this blazer was a yellow tag deal at F21 for $14!?

I had a 7 AM infusion appointment so that sucked getting up that early and missed the family breakfast at my mom's... It was nice to get caught up on most of my magazines though. Took the kids to gym class, got my car washed and detailed (buffed out my latest dent) and costco grocery shopped.
Spent the afternoon at home...

  7. I LOVE it! The past three outfit postings have been fabulous. You have got to keep post how you alter your outfit of the day, into kid friendly looks too. I always dream of putting together some of your fantastic outfits, but am stuck having to be kid friendly. Especially since I have a 2.5 yr old and a 14 month old.
