Leather Jacket + Cami + High Waisted Crops + Pointy Toe High Boots

This look originally came about from The Mom Edit’s latest Style Challenge.

The first style challenge was “Layer a Cami over something Warmer”, and I posted my take on it here.

If I’m being honest…it was fun to think outside of the box, but I’m not sure I’d have felt comfortable wearing that out for date night… So, I removed the button down, and this is definitely more “me”.

And CLEARLY before “SNOWMAGEDON!”

BUT….date night thoughts for those not huddled in their houses tomorrow by the fire… The high waisted crop flare is absolutely my fav jean right now, but it’s harder to wear in the winter.  I put a pair of high and tight booties on, and suddenly…no more cold ankles!

And totally date night worthy!
I have gotten sooooo much mileage out of this vintage belt!!  On of the many reasons I love to thrift!

On me…

Cami- Foley (old, similar here and less expensive here)
Belt- Vintage (thrifted)
Leather Jacket- Remake Remodel (eBay for $16!! similar here and cute faux option here)
Heels- Nine West (old, similar here and here)
Keeping it Real…
I showed a video of it being garbage day when I was taking these, but I didn’t capture the construction that was going on at the end of the block… Yes, I was surrounded, and…yes, I did outfit changes hahaha.  No shame in my game at this point!!
And…I had thoughts of taking pics without my jacket, but….it was 40-something degrees.  Didn’t happen.  Ok, it did, but it’s not worth posting haha.

Leather Bomber + Silk Tank Dress + Wrap Sandals | All Black for Date Night!

 The Huz and I were long overdue for a date night!  We had gotten a gift certificate from his boss for….CHRISTMAS, but just hadn’t gotten the chance to use it until now!

Ok….these were taken about 3 weeks ago now…as per usual!

BUT…

We went to the Pink Door downtown, and I decided to sass it up a little bit more than my usual around the neighborhood date night.  This dress is SO comfy, and I love that it can be dressed up or down.  I’m all about small cross body bags when I go out.  Easy to wear and not at all cumbersome! AND…I even managed to coerce the Huz out for a few!! Maya was not as happy about it.  She was a little bummed that we were leaving her behind… I knew it would get chilly in the evening, so I brought along this leather bomber.I think it’s such a fun alternative to the classic biker leather jacket! And these sandals are SO comfy!  I accidentally wrapped them oppositely, but I kind of like it!Dying over this vintage Hanna Andersson dress!!

SO CUTE!!  Even if she’s giving total attitude…

On me…

Leather Jacket- Remake Remodel (eBay for $16!! similar here and cute faux option here)
Dress- Feel the Piece “Ray Tank Dress” (ebay $14- retail $290! similar here less expensive here)
Cross Body Bag- DVF (eBay, similar here and less expensive here)
Sandals- Koolaburra “Alexa” (eBay)
On Maya…
Dress- Vintage Hanna Andersson (thrifted)
Leggings- Tea (thrifted)
Shoes- Converse (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
Her face in these…
Kind of classic these days.  I’ll TAKE pictures, but I’m going to be a grumpy face about it….

Boho Tops…come in handy when you go out :)

 It was my friend’s birthday the other night, so we went to someplace special.  He’s a total foodie, so we let him pick the spot.  When I looked at the menu, I knew I needed a top that had “room to grow” haha.  That is one of the things I love so much about “boho” tops.  They are loose and flow so you can’t see the “after food and wine belly” 🙂

Super Mom Tip
These tops are great for so many occasions/times in your life.  Wear them in the first trimester when you are trying to “hide the bump”.  Then wear them after the baby comes to…well, “hide the bump” :{  Then, wear them when you have a two year old to hide the food baby 🙂  That said.  It’s best to wear loose flowing tops with tighter bottoms to even things out. 🙂
