Outfit of the day

This is our outfit of the day...a new feature I'm going to do...I wore this to take Gabriel to story time at the library's a couple 'fashion rules' about why it works:
1. it's COMFY!!! It is hard to tell from the photo, but the leggings are made from cozy french terry...other words, SWEATPANT MATERIAL! They are made by american apparel, and are a must for winter...when you want to wear leggings but it's just too cold...because let's face it...most leggings are thin enough that I worry about them being see-through, let alone warm. You can purchase your own sweatpant leggings here:
2. Black booties...with about a 2 1/2 inch heel...high enough to make you look taller and skinnier, but easy to walk in...or run after your toddler!
3. Stretchy leopard print brother gave this to me as a Christmas present (might have sent him a link for it) from forever21 and I love it. It's the perfect weight...not see through at all but not heavy enough to make you get hot indoors. IS pretty tight, which can make me feel self-concious. So...add the jacket and big necklace, which helps catches the eye instead of the stomach underneath. I also added the jacket because it's DAYTIME...when an all or mostly black ensemble can be a little too severe. The bright color in the jacket helps the outfit look more casual and more appropriate for the time of day. Happy dressing!!
