Tuxedo Jacket, Joe's "Erin" Boots and Chauffeur

"Later can the baby drive me to McDonald's?"
Princess Sparkles asked if the baby could drive her when they grow up. 
(Yes, sometimes my kids eat McD's... please don't judge).
I told her she was the eldest, therefore she would most likely do the driving. 
She liked that idea...

GREEN DRESS - Motherhood Maternity (thrifted)
PRINTED TUXEDO JACKET - Forever 21, $10
ORANGE PURSE - Heavenly Treasures
JOE'S OPEN TOE ANKLE BOOTIES - Loehmanns, $65 (orig. $300)
***please ignore the wrinkles, I sat a lot at church :)

Monday's Inspiration - Emma Stone



Here's what I wore to church today.  I checked out Two Bird's "Monday Inspiration," and decided to go with a printed tuxedo jacket from F21 and a thrifted maternity dress my sister, Polka Dots, sent me from Hawaii.  I also was excited to wear my new Joe's open toe ankle booties I got from Loehmanns.  I used coupons and discounts.  They were originally $300 and I got them for $65!!!

Future Chauffeur - Princess Sparkles (wearing an Old Navy hand-me-down)
I've been really lucky to inherit a lot of great maternity clothes (It's also been nice to have receive thrifted dresses from Hawaii!).  I have about a few weeks left to wear them all.  I guess sometimes it's nice to NOT be the first one to do things (like have kids), then you can benefit from those who have gone before you...though I think Princess Sparkles is happy she'll be the first to drive!

Love the combination especially those boots are to die for. I love the switch of the pieces and colors to match the inspiration. I do that all the time based on what I have in my closet.

P.S. That purple fur coat you liked from F21... I bought that on clearance for $13!!! My friend who lives in t shirts and shorts was with me and even she insisted I had to get it...
