Fall Brights - Red Maxi Skirt and a Fur Vest

RED CASHMERE SKIRT - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
PURPLE TANK TOP - Target
BLACK CARDIGAN - Express
FUR VEST - Forever 21
LEOPARD HEELS - GoJane
NECKLACE - GS Lillian



Last night I went out with some girlfriends.  We went to dinner at Taste on Melrose and a fabulous comedy improv show called "Groundlings."  It was a really fun night out and I laughed a lot.  I told Princess Sparkles to be extra good for her daddy since she was going to Disneyland today with my cousins.  I had to drop Sparkles off really early, so I asked Camo to dress Sparkles in something I could take her and go in.  I smiled when I got home because Sparkles was indeed all ready to go, dressed in jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt.  I was surprised she didn't have her shoes on too :)

Here's what I wore on the night out with the girls.  Funny thing is I knew everyone else would be wearing jeans and a cute top but I decided to go all out.  Plus I was already thinking about what I was going to wear for "Fashion Challenge" which was Fall Brights.  At first I was just wearing the black cardigan, but after some thought I decided the fur vest really made this outfit more fun.  I was excited to also wear leopard heels (yes, I know I'm pregnant) and my GS Lillian necklace.

I love getting dressed up to go out, but I have to say that as soon as I get home I love taking off all my make up and throwing on my pajamas (even if it's in the middle of the day).  So unlike Princess Sparkles, you would never catch me sleeping in a pair of jeans...even if they were jeggings!

I like these fantastic bold, but bright colors. I have something in similar colors but I'm scared to wear blue and dark (darker than you have) red together for fear of looking like a superhero.

Girl, can I just comment on every single piece of this look?! Love it all so much. Have to mention those fierce leopard HEELS though--you rock pregnant or not:-))
I totally agree about sleeping in jeans--I also LOVE to come home and take off what I loved to put on only hours before.

Tara said...

Oooh, how often do people remind you that you're pregnant when you're wearing heels? Like you didn't already know that...

It just makes me laugh sometimes, what part of your own personal business other people think they should be involved in :)

Love that red skirt, and I'd say the fur vest was definitely a good call!

Mongs said...

This is SUCH a great outfit! It is so fun and bright, I love it! I'm happy that you decided to go with the fur rather than the black cardi, because it really is the icing on the cake. I hope you had a great time, with your friends :)
