Plaid Leggings and Captain Underpants

"Hello, Captain Underpants,"
Princess Sparkles said to me as we ate dinner.
(Sparkles has been quite interested in this Captain Underpants
after one of her teachers wore it as her costume on Halloween)
I asked why I was Captain Underpants and she said I always show my underpants.
I told her I was wearing leggings and then she said,
"no those are your big, big, humongous underpants."

BLACK TANK - Victoria's Secret
BROWN BOOTS - White Mountain (thrifted)
GREEN BRACELET - Heavenly Treausres

Monday's Inspiration

For "Inspiration Monday" I decided to forgo the jeans and wear plaid leggings with an oversized olive sweater.  I also got to premiere these chestnut boots I've been saving.  I found them new at the Goodwill for $15.  They're even real leather!

I love wearing leggings.  You can find them in all sorts of prints, they always fit well with boots and they're quite inexpensive.  They're also extremely comfy, like running around just in your underwear!

Your kids look so cute in their costumes--Bucket's face is priceless! I adore your plaid leggings (LOL at your daughter's comments about leggings!). And I can't believe those boots are a $15 Goodwill find!

Awesome find on the boots! I love hearing how kids see the world. Now I'm going to thing about my big, huge underpants every time I pull on a pair of leggings.:)

I think the plaid leggings are really cute, and yes, what is not to love about how cheap, comfy and fun they are to wear!

I love your blog pose while the kids are all being silly. Looks very familiar to my photo shoots.
The last photo is hilarious.

Lovely outfit by the way. I am loving your new hair (style or cut).
