Outfit of the Day


I hope you all had a great start to your week! My weekend was extra long, but I go back to work tonight. Having a lot of days off is great, but it makes it so hard to go back to work sometimes! Ollie also had a bit of the stomach bug over the weekend, so the puppy mom in me hates going back to work and leaving him at home! And as everyone knows, a long weekend is great for catching up on reality tv  on the DVR too :)
Sunday, we went to our church class. It was so chilly out so I wanted to be warm even after I took my coat off. Here was my inspiration:
I wanted to wear my new rain boots from my last post, and I hadn't worn my white puff vest in a while or my polka dot scarf. Andddd I'm trying to recycle a lot of things and spend less lately. Bummer.
Scarf: American Eagle
Vest: Forever 21
Pink Tee: Victorias Secret
Bracelet: Dottie Couture
Jeans: Forever 21
Boots: Francescas (Chinese Laundry)
Leg Warmers: Etsy
My plan had been to take some outfit pictures outside with the pup in all the pretty new snow. But then my husband was way too excited to use his new snow blower, so I was left to my own devices again.
If you are looking for new rain boots, for a cheaper option than Hunters, these are it. I like that they are a bit "stiff" and don't bend a ton when you walk with them. They also fit boot warmers in too! I think they are going to be my new favs!
What are your favorite outfit staples lately?

  3. I cannot make myself stop wearing leggings - I have a pair of fleece lined ones that go perfect with rain boots, knee high boots, flats, and I can wear everything from a oxford to a tshirt with them and be comfy!

  15. As you enter into the world of outfit pictures, you will learn that there is an almost constant battle between blogger (wife) and photographer (husband). I deal with it every single time, which is why I only do outfits twice a week. You look so cute in those polka dot boots! I love them!
