WhatIWore: Happy Monday morning everyone! I’m doing this post day of, so it’s what I’m still wearing right now! My sitter has a well deserved day off after Dance Marathon this weekend (they raised over $4.1 million for Riley Children’s Hospital!) so I have Felix with me as I go about my morning!
This is the kind of outfit I’d usually save for when I don’t have a little one with me… and I was reminded of that while I was wrestling with him to get into his carseat after going the coffee shop. Capes aren’t especially kid friendly… unless perhaps you have a newborn in a carrier and you’d like a nursing cover. I’ll switch to a different jacket this afternoon, but I do like the way this outfit came together. Below I’ve tracked down some new and vintage options in case you’re on the hunt for one yourself!
Speaking of coming together, I’d be remiss if I didn’t urge everyone to get to your polls tomorrow! This is a historic election… don’t stand on the sidelines without contributing your voice!
When: November 7, 2016
Shades: Karen Walker ‘Super Duper Strength’
Long Sleeve Striped Tee: Old Navy (maternity)
Jeans: AG, a gift of A Pea in the Pod (regular sizes here)
Over the Knee Boots: gift of Rockport from last fall
Where: Coffee shop, later to the grocery and other errands!
One last thing - my dark skinny jeans were in the wash, so I actually wore flares under these boots! I cuffed and then sort of wrapped them around my calves, which worked just fine. As long as the thigh of your jeans is fitted, any leg opening should work with this kind of boot.
