Happy New Year - Knee High Socks and A Slide

"Weeeeeee!!!"  Pigtails exclaimed as her figurines went down the "slide."
I recently went to the GAP and found a fabulous pair of heels for $6 (originally $80!). 
Of course they weren't my size but they did fit my sister, Polka Dots
Because somebody needed to have those shoes I bought them for her. 
Pigtails liked them too and so did her dolls!
 
MATERNITY SWEATER - Vince
TANK TOP - Gap Maternity
LEGGINGS - Forever 21
KNEE HIGH SOCKS - Nordstrom
HAT - Albertus Swanepoel for Target
SUEDE BOOTS - Jessica Simpson
Monday's Inspiration: Eva Longoria

"Gung hei fa choi!" To those of you who celebrate Chinese New Year, I hope that the year of the dragon is a prosperous one!

Today was a cold rainy day. I'm sure the rest of the country would laugh at us Californians for even calling it cold (except maybe for Hawaii). I was very happy to participate in Two Bird's "Monday Inspiration" since I could wear a cozy sweater, leggings, warm socks and boots. I also love wearing a hat on rainy days!

Leather/Linen heels on clearance for $6 at the GAP

Wee!  Pigtails uses Polka Dots' shoes as a slide.

I wish our weather would make up it's mind.  Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and in the 70's.  You might even find me in shorts and a t-shirt at the park.  Pigtails' figurines won't be the only ones going down the slide!

It's 71 here today in Eastern NC too! Crazy! I can't remember where you live right now...
This look is so nice! I love your colored tights and socks...and of course the hat. I almost picked this one up the other day, but restrained myself since I had already gotten 3 from the line...who knows maybe I'll go back:)
Cute shoes and very nice of you to pass them on!

Hello Miss Claire! How are you? I'm looking for your email because I'm going to be in Culver City today--hoping to connect with you soon if not today, I know that you are close to giving birth so don't know if you'll feel up for it, but hoping to see you soon!
