Linen, Leopard and Love-Lettered Purse.

You guys I am exhausted. Husband and I have gotten very little sleep last night (it's not what you are thinking if you are thinking what I am thinking you are LOL). Enough word playing. But seriously if you have children, you know that at least until they are 3 years old, there will be several sleepless nights. Vivian keeps me so busy during the day, she sleeps for several short periods of time & barely let's me sleep or nap during the day. I am still posting this outfit today though to follow with the Pantone-inspired Challenge and once again link up with Marissa and Heidi.

I wore this outfit last night, just for a walk & coffee with My Husband & My Girl. I hadn't worn heels in forever and speaking of forever I have had these since Mervyn's California days. Is that department store still in existence anywhere? I used to love it & shopped there a lot when it was around. I liked it better than Kohl's & JC Penney. Well, these are slides, in a Leopard Print w/ a Skinny Leather Cognac Bow in the front & the heels are Cognac Leather also. Real cute & versatile, pretty comfortable too - what's not to love!? It goes to show you that Leopard has been stylish for at least a decade or so & I don't think it will ever go out of style. The color of the challenge today was Linen and I couldn't have found a better shirt for it. This Soft, Rayon, Girly Tee with the Beautiful, Large Chiffon Rose on the neckline is not quite Gray, not quite Off-White, not quite Ivory, not quite Taupe. If I wear to call it a color, I would have called it Linen indeed. Speaking of things 'not quite', I love the pattern of my Skirt. It is not quite Animal-Print, not quite Geometric, not quite Safari, not quite Leaf-Print, not quite Abstract. The two together plus the shoes three, make a perfect combination. I added a Large Bow Headband - my signature accessory, some Earrings, a Leopard Plastic Bangle, a Cognac Leather Belt & Makeup so I was good to go. This is an Outfit from The Limited pretty much, with my Jewelry being Forever 21. This is definitely a lot dressier than what I wear these days. It makes me look & feel ready for the corporate world... almost. I don't miss it. Being a Mom is the best job in the world. It is exhausting & it only pays in smiles (for now) but very rewarding, there is no corporate or other place in the world I'd rather be! I did put my hair up later on though. And Vivian looked Lovely as usual, don't you think?
