Mint Green Flying Monkey Skinny Jeans and a Royal Yawn

"Mommy, I just did a royal yawn," Princess Sparkles told me.
"A what?"
"A royal yawn."
Princess Sparkles yawned again.
She explained to me that a royal yawn keeps her from not being tired.
Maybe it's her way of telling me she doesn't want to nap.
MINT GREEN JEANS - Flying Monkey (Anonymous LA)
GRAY MOTO JACKET - H&M
BLACK NURSING TANK - Target
CREAM SCARF - JC Penney
BLACK BOOTS - BCBGeneration

Monday's Inspiration - Julianne Hough
I decided to pull out my favorite mint green Flying Monkey jeans I got from Anonymous LA just in time for St. Patrick's Day (and Everybody, Everywear's "Green With Envy").  And because they're skinnies I figured it would work for Two Birds' "Monday Inspiration" photo too!   They don't look it, but these jeans are really comfortable and they come in a bunch of colors!

Princess Sparkles re-energizes herself!  No nap needed.
This past weekend I pulled down some of my non-maternity clothes to put back into my closet.  I really needed a "new" wardrobe to give me a little fashion inspiration.  Bucket is a month old now, and I'm still adjusting to life with three.  It's pretty exhausting.  Maybe I should "royal yawn" more.

Love Love the mint green pants

Jess said...

Haha too funny, I'm definitely stealing the "royal yawn" from Princess Sparkles. Just wait, it will probably be the next big thing!

Bonnie said...

I want your pants.
It would have been funnier if I put "in" in parenthesis between "want" and "your." Like this -- I want (in) your pants.
See? Funnier.
The point is that I am totally in love with your mint pants.

Maiken said...

those pants definitely are so cool and perfect for spring. I love the colour. your whole outfit looks really casual but at the same time strong and edgy in my opinion (those boots, the biker jacket..)

Those mint pants were the first thing that caught my eye! Really love them! It's a great way to add a little color to the outfit. And the stories you share about your little ones always make me smile - Princess Sparkles is too cute for words!

The kid is good--an amazing source
of creative ideas. Love the look
of jeggings. Fashions may come and go, but I believe it's going to be
very difficult to get women to ever give these up.

Love the mint pants, and it is total celeb status with the black boots.
