Grr, Baby, Grr.

Or should I say, "Brr, Baby, Brr?" I do suppose either statement would work. Baby, it's cold outside, but my leopard heels are on fiah! (My computer just autocorrected that word to "fish." Come on, computer, don't correct the English teacher. I meant what I typed.)

Momma dukes took my photographs today. I did not include the picture of me laughing hysterically because my mom said, "I hope that's not poop." She's a funny one, I tell ya, so is my dad who taunted the dog by farting on him and squealed when the dog actually bit his butt. It serves you right, Dad.  

I need you to know that this outfit did not work for me until I put on the necklace. I had also planned to wear a pair of nude pumps. I'm so glad my brain was firing on all cylinders this morning and chose the leopard print heels. Thank yoooou, two hour delay. 

Additionally, I felt like my work slacks felt neglected because skinny jeans are my favorite clothing children.  As a result, I revived those plaid pants yesterday and these maroon (?) pants today. My calves thank me. Every now and then, they like to take a little breather. 

Any clothes you're unearthing lately and giving a fighting chance against another article of clothing you clearly love better? 
That dog is the definition of a creeper. Not kidding.

This picture has not been edited. My eyes are that color. 
Obviously, if the picture had been edited, I would have smudged out the octopus hair flying about my head.

Mom wanted a detail shot. Isn't she cute? 

Outfit Deets:
Pants: The Limited (here are some in velvet)
Sweater: Target (LOFTLoehmann's)
Belt: Target (cute alternative)
Blazer: Express (so dang old)--(Target is always a safe bet.)
Necklace: NY & Co. (similar)

P.S. With all of these crazy names for colors, it takes me twice as long to find similar items. I have to not only type in maroon, but also burgundy, oxblood, and red. I can't just type in yellow. I need to type in mustard. Craziness, people! Words are important.

Linking up with Mix & Match Fashion.

  4. I am loving the color of your pants, and the necklace is the perfect finishing touch. Thanks so much for linking up with me :)

  5. This is adorable! I love the accent of yellow/mustard/goldenrod/school bus in the belt. I found your blog through Mix and Match Fashion, and I'm your newest follower! Feel free to check out my blog if you'd like.

  6. This post made me laugh. I do like this look, especially with the shoes! And your dog in the background is hilarious. My dog's a creeper too. :)
