Colorful Tights, a Moto Vest and $10 Boots

BLACK DRESS - Thrifted from another mom's garage FREE!
GRAY MOTO VEST - My Beloved, $15
PLAID INFINITY SCARF - Made by my mom
EARRINGS - T&J Designs (from Monday Mingle giveaway)
AQUA TIGHTS - Nordstrom
RED PURSE - B Makowsky, $85
BLACK BOOTS - Old Navy, $10



My $10 boots from Old Navy!!!
"Mommy, [Pigtails] threw a pebble into the toilet!"  I went over to check and indeed she had.  I would've fished it out but Sparkles likes to pee and often forgets to flush and I wasn't digging my hand in yellow water to get that little thing so I flushed it down. Hope it doesn't mess up our pipes...

When I first found out I was pregnant I checked out craigslist and bought a few pieces from a mom in her garage.  She threw in some freebies and this dress was one of them.  It has chiffon sleeves which I like.  I wore a scarf so I could link up to Silverstyle's "Trending Through The Decades" But sadly I missed out :(  I also wore tights so I could do Everybody Everywear.  Again, too late.  The upside is I'm wearing these cute black boots I got at Old Navy for $10!  They were on clearance AND I had a coupon.  My mom, Fair Isle, told me she could even put faux fur on them, so I'm excited about that!!!

I'm so lucky to have a talented mom like Fair Isle who can sew and make me some really great things (like my scarf and some cool cuffs!).  Unlike her daughter, who's not so good at being meticulous (okay, it's kinda an excuse).  Just feel like I often mess things up - like missing out on some really cool link ups - though hopefully I did NOT mess up our toilet!

***I am going to link up to "Thursdays Are for Thrifters" from Spunky Chateau!

Hey Girl! I'm sure a pebble won't mess it up. You look awesome. I've seen blue tights, but that's an awesome shade for you. That was so sweet for that lady to throw in extra things. Loving that scarf! You are one haute momma. Hope all is well and Have a great evening!

I missed you this link up! I know you are busy but do enjoy when you stop by. That outfit is so cute! I love the colored tights. My days of those sadly are behind me.
Take care of yourself and happy flushing tomorrow?

Bummer on the link ups (and the pebble) but the upside is that you are one goooooorgeous pregnant lady! Love love love your $10 boots and the bright tights and the scarf! You are a lucky girl to have a mama who can sew!

I keep those disposable latex gloves handy for such occasions. Which is worse--fishing things out or having something accidentally drag in the bowl. $10 boots! Unbelievable!

You say $10 boots...so jealous. I feel a bit bad that lately ON doesn't have too many great products though meaning they are skimping out some on sewing lol.
The boots look gorgeous.

Absolutely love the bright pop of color those tights add to the outfit. Honestly, colored tights are one of my favorite things about colder weather. And they can add a great detail to just about any outfit. You look wonderful, Claire!

I think you probably got off easy with just a pebble being in the toilet...it could have been so much worse :)

I love the color of these tights, especially when paired with the neutral colors in the rest of the outfit. So pretty!
