Fringe Boots, Shorts and a Big Girl

"Look, I'm a big girl now," Pigtails shouted proudly.
Camouflage accidentally put one of Princess Sparkles' shirts on Pigtails.
She decided that made her older.
Princess Sparkles wasn't exactly amused.
I'm just glad Pigtails doesn't mind the hand-me-downs.

Monday's Inspiration - Jessica Alba

Today's "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds is Jessica Alba. I decided to link up this outfit which I wore to the local fair Saturday night. It's my "transitional" outfit with the jacket and boots (both old favorites), but shorts too! I added a pop of color with bright orange lips and coral earrings."

The fun thing about this time of the year is mixing fall clothes with summer ones.   And there's nothing better than wearing shorts and boots (okay, really I just love wearing boots!).  It's almost as good as getting to wear one of your big sister's tops!

If you described this outfit to me, I would have hated it. But looking at it, I definitely adore it. I'm not even a fan of fringe!

I think I would even wear this.

I've been debating buying a pair of the taller minnetonka fringe boots but I wasn't sure what I would be able to wear them with but now that I've seen this post I'm thinking I may need a pair.

Claire you look so hot, i bet your man was distracted, & that's why he put sparkle's top on pigtails. She certainly looks cute & happy! :) I love wearing boots too. Your pair has me wanting to go shopping, as if i need another pair of boots.

Great outfit! I love love your boots and I wish it was cool enough to mix fall/summer together. We have been suffering through a heat wave in PA!
