Skinny Jeans, Neon Green and a Kimono Cardigan - Inspiration Monday

SKINNY JEANS - H&M
NEON GREEN TANK - GAP
GRAY KIMONO SWEATER - Thrifted
CROSSBODY BAG - All You Need
CLOGS - Charles and David
NECKLACE - Jaclyn1423
Monday's Inspiration:
Heidi Klum

Today while I was feeding Pigtails some melon for breakfast she caught a glimpse of a banana and decided that she wanted that instead.  So she held out her hand to my fork of melon, waved it and said "no."  It was just so funny I had to laugh.  Pigtails definitely knows what she wants (and what she doesn't).

"Inspiration Monday" from the ladies over at Two Birds is Heidi Klum.  I admire Heidi for her baby making abilities and kinda hate her for that awesome post baby bod.  I decided it's been a while since I wore some skinnies so I whipped out these $10 babies from the clearance rack at...no, not Target... H&M.  I decided to go with a neon green tank (just because) and this great thrifted kimono sweater my mom got me.  And check out the fabulous necklace I bought from Jaclyn1423!!!

I'm having a really good day because Jayme & Mendi from "Her Late Night Cravings" just emailed me that I won their giveaway!  I can't tell you how excited I am.  If you haven't already, check these ladies out.  They do these fabulous vlogs.  I especially love their advice on beauty products!

Anyway, I'm hoping to do a little thrifting with my mom, Fair Isle, and the girls.  I'm sure Pigtails will let me know exactly what she wants from the thrift store and maybe I'll even get another one of those hand waves and a "no," though knowing my luck there will probably be way more affirmatives.  But that's okay, I can buy her something instead of myself because I'm still on a super high from winning that fantastic giveaway!

Great shade of green.

I have NO idea how Heidi was able to whip herself back into shape that quickly after giving birth. It's incredible. The woman is superhuman, I swear.
I love that you wore the bright green shirt! It looks great with the skinnies.

It's not just that Heidi got that baby back after just one baby...it's that she's done it after how many? Four now? That's just not fair... :)

Love that green tank...such an awesome color!

I am a sucker for kimonos! I bought a long, silky one last year and ended up wearing it to a Halloween party!
I would wear that cardigan in a heart beat!

Love the neon tank. I used to love melon when I was a baby too..but I ate to much..and got sick. Finally, about a year ago or so I started eating it again.

You must have a magic camera cuz you literally glow in these pix. Your babies sure are funny LOL characters. Pigtails sounds like she's well on her way to giving Princess Sparkles competition in the diva category.
