I typically spend my time in cotton leggings normally covered in spit-up, picking up toys, wiping the cutest tushy and dancing around my house like a fool just because it makes my baby giggle, which is music to my ears. So when I saw the prompt for leggings I was super stoked and decided right then and there I wanted to go dressy - something out of the ordinary around these parts.
As always, please take the time to link back to mine or Jana's post to share the love :) Because we all need a little love.
Can we all agree Jana looks wonderful in hats? I love her dressy/casual outfit with the pop of red from her hat. And Nadia's bold red lip is ah-mazing and completely puts together her whole casual look. These ladies are both fabulous, make sure to check out their blogs.
Thursday through Sunday we spent staining and painting our deck so I have to apologize for indoor pictures - I was chain and shackled to our house. Also you may notice my hair in the first picture is different from the rest of the pictures. That's what happens when baby doesn't nap like normal, interrupts my photo shoot and I have to restart after my next shower when I'm not covered from head to toe in stain and white paint again. It's trail and error people.
All black is classic and flattering. Wearing leggings this tight post baby means I need all the flattery I can get... #noshame #icarriedhumanlife. So I snagged my favorite tunic from the Old Navy clearance rack because it covers a bit of my tush, my faux leather leggings (a total steal last year from Forever21) and my comfiest black pumps. Add a bold red lip and a simple white clutch and this look becomes classic and timeless.
Bonus, Jon saw this outfit and requested it for our next date night so I think it was a total win!
