In the Trenches - Bloggers Do It Better

 I wanted to link up to Bloggers Do It Better coat event so had to pick an outfit that involved a coat today. But it also had to be appropriate for my day which was going to involve a busy morning and then sitting in a car for 5+ hours. That part was the toughest. But as I was going through my inspirations I found this from J Crew's September Catalog:
 I am always drawn to funky color combo's.  And I also loved how odd this was incorporating sweat pant like pants, sneakers and a coat! I swapped the colors of the sneakers and the pants since that is what I owned. The outfit was amazingly comfortable by the way. I loved being in it all day. And I layered the sweater over a same neon colored tee when it was hot I was still in the same color combo. My dad and Aunt appreciated in the car ride! (I am being sarcastic! :))

Pink Trench Coat - Newport News

Started the day with ballet class at the park which the outfit came in very handy because it was freezing that early and I was so glad to have the trench on. Then we rushed to the library for story time and returning our weekly books and getting a new stack. 
Then we came home and I emptied my car of kid car seats and vacuumed and put 3 down pillows and a blanket to get it comfy for my dad for a long car ride to and back to LAX airport to take my aunt for her flight back to Turkey.
The traffic was awful going there due to an accident but we got her in plenty of time then headed back with a stop for a quick dinner and to avoid the rush hour traffic on the way back.
