Chevron Maxi Skirt and A Flight to China

"Come on, Pigtails, we're naughty.  Let's go to China."
The other day I scolded the girls and this is what Princess Sparkles reacted.
I couldn't help but laugh.  Then I asked her why China and she told me,
"Because I've never been there and they have pandas.  I like pandas."


MAXI SKIRT, GRAY WEDGE BOOTS - Old Navy
RED NURSING TANK - Glamourmom
BRONZE JACKET - H&M
NECKLACE - GS Lillian


Today's "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds is Olivia Wilde in a chevron maxi.  I was tempted to wear my Missoni for Target maxi dress but it's too hard with the baby so I opted for my Old Navy maxi skirt.  I was excited to whip out the H&M faux leather jacket since I forgot about it in the back of my closet.

I'm really excited for spring.  I can't wait to wear more bright colors (especially after spending most of my pregnancy in neutrals).  In fact, I just went to Target and went a little crazy on the colorful skinnies (they're on sale this week!!!).  I guess maybe I should pack up and go to China with the girls.

your old navy skirt worked just as well so don't worry! :) ...and buying new clothes after a hard labor is not a naughty act at all! :) You deserve to be pampered!

Maiken said...

I guess everyone loves pandas.. at least I do since they're the cutest creatures.. after dogs of course :P
I like your outfit too, especially because I don't own a leather jacket and it's great to see others wearing it.
