Leopard Print Skinny Jeans and Fashionable Lizard Hunters

"Come on Pigtails, let's get him!"
I peeked outside and saw...
Princess Sparkles holding an empty peanut can.
"What are you doing?"
"We're trying to catch a lizard."
Then Sparkles got on the ground to climb through plants
in her new tutu dress...

LEOPARD SKINNY JEANS - Target, $23
BLACK NURSING TANK - Target
CHARCOAL JACKET - Old Navy, $6
RED PURSE - B Makowsky
NUDE FLATS - Me Too (Thrifted), $7
Inspiration Monday from Two Birds Boutique:
Miranda Kerr

I know it's Wednesday but I'm just now getting to my "Inspiration Monday" outfit post (though I did wear it on Monday).  Lately time seems to fly by me and I can barely keep up!  These leopard skinnies are from Target.  They weren't on sale but they were so cute and fit comfortably.  The jacket I got on clearance for $6 at Old Navy last year, and the Me Too flats were new when I thrifted them from GW.

Pigtails and Princess Sparkles, fashionable lizard hunters.
Although my daily life consists of chauffering kids, grocery shopping, nursing and changing poop, I try to take a page from my fashionable lizard hunters and "dress up."  I might not have anywhere special to go to, but I can still look like I do!

You look so glam! Definitely, I think it is good to dress up even if your day doesn't require it, if you know what I mean! Did they catch the lizard by the way?

Teddi said...

Hooray for several things here Claire! For one, your girls, of course, are adorable. For two, I LOVE your leopard skinnies and you look like an iddy biddy skinny minny in them! For three, you've done a great job at the inspiration! Well done!

Awesome, I love that you got those leopard skinnies! I walk by them every time I'm in Target and think about them, but talk myself out of them for one reason or another. They're so cute on you though--maybe I should go for it!

Aaaargh. I am so jealous of your leopard skinnies. I see them all the time in Target but their skinnies aren't great for my body - I will probably still cave and get them anyway because I'm nothing if not impractical.

You look amazing!!!

Look at you, Ms. Thang!! You look amazing! I honestly can't believe you just had a baby. For reals... it's not fair! lol

I think dressing up a little bit helps me to feel better about myself, even when I don't have anywhere to go!

two birds said...

you look amazing, as always! i think if i was a stay-at-home mom, i'd be in sweats all day, but yes, dressing up usually makes me feel better!
