my outfit: green says pink!

When I go to pick out an outfit I first think about what mood I am in. That usually gives me an answer to what top I will wear. Then I choose some jeans (cuz that's pretty much all I wear, hey, I got kids!) and that takes a bit longer - choosing jeans for me is like choosing a favorite child. Then my shoes go back to my mood. The accessories though... the clothes kind of pick those... I ask my green sweater - "Sweater, what would make you happy? What would make you feel above average? What are your wildest dreams, dear sweater?" You know... something like that.

Today Sweater said she wanted something to "pop". So the pink scarf it was! What can I say... making dreams come true is my life. That and spilled milk. You know, to keep me humble. (also, just fyi, this outfit is "spilled milk" approved)


Oh, and hello gorgeous white coat. I sure love you.

So want the breakdown of how this outfit was chosen?

Sweater: Need something comfy and warm, but I like the deep v-neck, makes me feel feminine.
Jeans: Need a "good butt" day... Sevens can do that for me. Straight leg for boots, please.
Boots: Need a heel and a bit of style to get me over the last hump of this sickness.

I am really into earrings lately... I think it's my longer hair, it makes it look less long or something. Or maybe it is the influence of my girl Jackie... she loves earrings. They say you are the average of the five people you spend time with. What about the top five blogs I visit. Does that count?

Oh, I really like the pop of color against the gray sweater. I've got to get brave enough to do my scarves in different ways!

This post is too cute. I'm totes going to ask what my sweaters' wildest dreams are from now on. And I love that I influence your earring choices! Go big or go home is my earring mantra! Ha!

You look supa dupa fab...as always.

And I may be crazy but I think I will give that 30 in 30 challenge a shot. Yikes!

Love the outfit. And I love the whole average of 5 people you spend time with. Although, I don't really spend too much time with other grown-ups. So I'm either an average of small children; or the blogs I read the most. Perhaps that's why I enjoy reading blogs so much...it's my inner desire to have other grown-ups in my life. :)

The earrings look so great with your long hair. Love 'em.
