Printed Denim + The “non diaper bag” diaper bag.

I am so drawn to printed denim (another fun way to mix up my denim addiction!), yet I get caught up on how to wear it.  I’ve decided I’m not one of those people that can mix prints and get away with it, so I keep it pretty simple with my top choices.  Over the summer I wore these with a plain white/black T or tank top.  Now that it’s getting colder, I thought I’d stay with the same simple color choice.

Btw, Seattle, you are killing me with this weather!!!  One minute-pouring.  The next minute-sunny.  All the while…WINDY.  Ugh.

blog Red Print Black Orchid Cream Cashmere Doma-7It hit me today that I’ve only shown the bags I carry in one post.  As a mom, we all know that the diaper bag is a staple in our day to day life.  I was determined NOT to get a diaper bag that looked like a “diaper bag”, and was giddy when I found this one by Nest!  The best part is that it doubles as a camera bag for me, and the lining also zips out for easy cleaning/turns it into just a cool purse!blog Red Print Black Orchid Cream Cashmere Doma-8blog Red Print Black Orchid Cream Cashmere Doma-9blog Red Print Black Orchid Cream Cashmere Doma-12blog Red Print Black Orchid Cream Cashmere Doma-5 blog Red Print Black Orchid Cream Cashmere Doma-6Maya’s take on the printed jeans…103 weeks leopard pants denim shirt cream sweater-1On me…

Daring to Wear J Brand Coated Denim…

I have been obsessed with the coated denim trend.  I’ve also been a little obsessed with animal print.  Usually, I’d pick one trend or the other to avoid overkill, but when I saw these, I had to have them!  My fear…am I too old to pull it off -39 is the new 29 right?? haha.  Anywho, I stalked these on eBay and finally pulled the trigger when I got a smoking deal.  Then…I waited for an occasion to come up where I could wear them!  When one of my best friend’s birthday came around, I knew that a girl’s night would be the perfect occasion to test them out on!

Added bonus?  They are stretchy, but are a thick material which basically makes them like jean spanx (but in a good way!)
