Silver Tunic, GS Lillian Necklace and Thrifted Kenneth Cole Heels

GRAY TUNIC - Sugar Lips (thrifted)
JEGGINGS - Macys
NECKLACE - GS Lillian
CROCODILE/SUEDE HEELS - Kenneth Cole (thrifted)



"F#@*!" said Pigtails as she tapped my arm in the kitchen.  She immediately caught my attention.  I turned to see her smiling face, "F#@*!"  I stared at her in shock (neither Camouflage nor I ever use the word), then I said hopefully, "Frog?"  Pigtails smiled and nodded emphatically.  Phew, I sighed as I realized she was talking about her new LeapFrog math movie.

I'm linking up to Silverstyle's "Trending Through the Decades: Tunics."  Tunics are a pregnancy staple in my closet, along with leggings.  They're comfy and practical!  I "thrifted" this gray tunic off craigslist from another mother.  I paired it with jeggings, a GS Lillian statement necklace and Kenneth Cole heels I thrifted for $10.  These shoes have never been worn and when I checked out a red sticker located on the bottom of the shoe I saw they were once on clearance for $199!!! 

I've really hit the jackpot at Goodwill lately, especially in the shoe department.  In fact, not only did I buy those Kenneth Coles and the orange patent Vince Camutos I wore in my last post, I also found some Michael Kors nude/rose gold heels.  With steals like this it almost makes me want to scream "F#@*!"  Just kidding.

P.S. tomorrow (Tuesday) I have a guest post on GS Lillian!  It's my holiday wishlist!

This is a really cute look and luv
those shoes! Can't blame you for
being excited about your shoes.I've
never heard of anyone else being so
lucky. Also lucky Pigtails was at
home and not in a crowd when she
said the f-word.

You look absolutely AMAZING! What fantastic finds at your Goodwill too. We never have any luck like that. Can't wait to see your wishlist at GS Lillian :)

Hahahahah!! That cracks me up! When my Little Guy was around 18 months to 2 years old, he used to say the funniest thing. We have a store here called Publix. One day, we pulled into the parking lot and were driving around looking for a place to park and he suddenly said in a really excited voice, "F@$! it!" We were like, "WHAT???!" And then we realized what he said. lol He said it that way for about six months and every time he did, it was sooo funny!

Now that that's out of the way, I can go on to how absolutely stunning you are, Claire! That tunic is gorgeous and I've got to say, you are glowing!! Pregnancy agrees with you. =)

I have a pair of jeggings that look like the one you have, looks great with your tunic. I like to wear tunics too even though I'm not pregnant, it helps to hide my bloated tummy that sometimes looks like I'm 4 months pregnant.

LOL that is too funny! I once told my daughter to pick up the damn puzzle (it was in the midst of a fight ensuing between her and my younger son about fighting over it and I had had enough) and she looks up at me completely innocent and says "Mom, it's not a damn puzzle." Woopsie.

Love, love, LOVE this tunic on you! It does indeed sound like you have had some great thrifting luck!

Rebecca said...

That is hilarious. I like your shoes!

Tara said...

Hahahaha! Sometimes B says something that sounds exactly like something she shouldn't be saying...and it's always up to me to translate what she actually means :)

Gray and yellow are seriously one of my favorite color combinations, ever. I love this tunic!

Kassi said...

Jayme and Mendi said...

Ok first off I love this outfit! You look FAB as always. And the story of Pigtails is too funny! My friends son used to say that word every time he said "Fire truck". Lordy!! They really worked on his "t's" after that. :-)

The little embroidery and cut-outs on that hemline are just so whimsical and darling! Little kids saying what sounds like bad words are always highly amusing -- unless you're in the wrong place (like, hmm... maybe church or a funeral?) haha! Love the frog!

Punctuation Mark said...

Happy Thanksgiving eve!

Emma said...
