Little Giraffe Print Jacket Borrowed from Mom.

I so meant to continue posting my Favorite Outfits of 2015 and bring you June+July this weekend, albeit I couldn't. To say that I had a very busy weekend, is a huge understatement. We did a big celebration/party of Vivian's 3rd Birthday yesterday and she was showered with so much love and gifts and all of her cousins under one roof. After a brain dump on Thursday (read up, if you missed it), I am back with an entire week of outfits and I have reserved this last week of January to some Animal Print. I love love Animal Print with Leopard being my favorite. Leopard is definitely a neutral to me. So, I saved today's Work Outfit from December (which explains the Christmas Tree) for this Monday Post. Speaking of the last week of January, can you believe it is already January 25th and the last Monday of this first and very cold month of 2016?! Me, neither.

For my first Animal Print of the week, I am featuring this Black+White Giraffe-Print Blazer I borrowed from my Mom's closet. My mom and I are not the same size but this Jacket since it is open and pretty fitted, fit me  quite well. Originally my mom's sister passed on this blazer to her so yeah I am the third woman in my family, wearing it. I paired it with my Pink Suede Mini Pencil Skirt and a Sleeveless Ivory/Grey Marled Turtleneck. But this Outfit is all about the Accessories since I blinged out my hands, added some Pear-Shaped Hoops, carried this Gorgeous Quilted Bag which was originally mine but my mom loved it and has stolen it from me (though she lets me carry it anytime I want lol) and these Strawberry-Red Patent Pumps. I know, I know I have A LOT of Red Pumps and funny thing is I am still eyeing a couple of new pairs. And my Gorgeous Silver Crystal Watch was also borrowed from my mom. It went so well with my Nude Python+Pave Bangle Bracelet. Oh and bare legs, they were so December. It is way too cold for them currently. This is more of what I am wearing to work these days. Have you raided your Mom's closet lately? What goodies have you found?

  16. I loved your giraffe print blazer! So many outfit ideas are popping into my head with that one:)And I was just thinking to myself how I desperately need a pair of red pumps- heels just aren't practical for me as a teacher. They seem worth it though:) I love being able to share clothes with family members. I pour through my sister's closet all the time:)! And I totally get you on being busy, no matter how much down time I get, I can't get caught up!
