The bright blue shirt.

OOTD blue blouse from EXPRESS and pants from HM

SHirt: Express// Pants HM// Boots: JUSTFAB old new ones here// Bag JUSTFAB similar// HAT hm

OK, I almost typed Shit instead of shirt. Just a little bit of FYI. That has nothing to do with the outfit of the day, but still everything to do with my lack of sleep and constant interuptions by a sick toddler. Poor kid. And my exhaustion has made me laugh over that little bit of “what was I thinking?” typo for a good 10 minutes. BRING ON THE COFFEE. It is necessary. Much needed. for today especially.

OOTD mom and sonThe outfit of the day!

Today’s outfit was one that I really love wearing. This bright cobalt blue shirt from Express has been one of my faves for a long time and it is one that never goes out of style. The portifino blouse is a staple. And the blue is so vivid. I want to go get it in red next and any other color. Only down fall is this shirt and cats don’t mix. The claws, you know.

OOTd blue blouse and faux leather leggins

The outfit I wanted to wear today was one that really didn’t need much thought. But something I can get stuff done in and snuggle a little one with. Considering how he was feeling, although he has also been bouncing off the walls. (How do they do it?!) With the weather being insanely over cast I thought it would be good to wear something brighter. And I wanted to wear these comfy faux leather leggings. Which are just a shiny stretch material. I love blue and black together. It makes a whole different kind of Monochrome. Perfection. I paired it with some Knee high boots that I have owned from Justfab for YEARS. These never get tiring and I love the zipper details in the back. Hardware on boots are always a good idea. And Although I could have worn some leather booties to make my legs look longer(tip) I opted for these instead. I haven’t worn them in a while.

My bag is also from Jutfab and it isn’t available anymore (NOOOOO) but I will share one that I like, this bag has just the right amount of fringe. I am not a big fringe fan. *gasp*

blogger outfits

We went for a walk today, and I am one of those who will sometimes take the camera and tripod with me. Or at least my phone and use the tripod with it. Sometimes it is easier. With my little one home it is so easy for us to go wander about and find great places to shoot and so I take advantage of the scenery.

blogger style

Truly sometimes going off the beaten path is the best way for adventure.

I will definitely need to go back here for more pictures. Especially with some boho clothes. WOW. Even a more modern outfit will look so neat here.

When you are so pale you glow, even in overcast I am bright. HAHAH

Steal my style!
