Lookin' Good

I didn't put this outfit together for this purpose, but today I am participating in the We Love Target link-up over at Literate & Stylish.  Today's item to style is... shoes!  These red flats are fairly new, so I'm looking forward to finding lots of fun ways to style them.  

The day I wore this outfit, I walked past our neighbor's house and he yelled, "For having three kids, you look pretty d*%# good!"  First of all, AWKWARD!  Second, I decided I would take that to mean that he liked my outfit!  Later that day, my Dad wondered why I was so dressed up...  Well, we left that house that day!  That's reason enough to "dress up" around here.  :-D

Oops, cut off my feet!  Try again...

Scarf: Very Jane;  Tunic: Old Navy;  Leggings: Kohl's;  Shoes: Target

I think a scarf is a great accessory for a mom to wear to complete her outfit.  It's nice and soft for when baby wants to snuggle up on your chest, and won't break when pulled on or have small pieces that could become choking hazards, like a necklace.  Don't get me wrong, I like necklaces, too, but scarves are just so practical!  I love the pop of color that my scarf and shoes add to a pretty plain outfit.  And I can throw on a different scarf and pair of flats to change up the look next time! BTW, this scarf is just a regular scarf that I tied the ends together to make into an infinity scarf.  I like to do that so that I don't have to keep adjusting my scarf all day!

Let me tell you, trying to take outfit pics with three kids running around is quite interesting!  They want to push the buttons, see the pictures, be IN the pictures...  Or they just want Mommy to hold them.  It took thirty-two shots to get these two halfway decent ones.  We did manage to get a pretty great outtake.  (Is that the right word?!)

Edited to add:
P.S.  I also linked up over at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday!


  1. Love your outtake and the outfit. I'm loving scarves lately too.

    We were trying to get a family snapshot last night and it took 30+ shots to get one ok... and that's just one kid. I can only imagine... I bet you could add a section of crazy things kids say to distract you during the picture taking :)

  2. those flats are so cute! and i love the scarf!


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
