Today I took my kids to the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito with a friend and her two kids and we had a great time. The funny thing about the bay area is that you literally have to dress for winter in the summer...it's really cool down there on the bay, especially in the mornings. So when planning out what to wear this morning I took advantage of the cold weather to pull out a long-sleeve cardigan. I love this Banana Republic cardigan...it's pretty lightweight but still has enough weight to keep me warm when there's a breeze. It's an almost exact replica of the Space-dyed cardigan J Crew had this summer, but I got mine for about a third of the price of J Crew's. I paired it with a blouse I bought on my San Francisco getaway a few weekends ago specifically to wear with this cardigan (which I scored at 40% off thanks to a coupon Gigi sent me a few months back--thanks girlie!!) I have to say I would have liked to have worn a pair of cute skinny jeans with this instead of the bootcut jeans that I wore, but I need to go shopping for some as I had to get rid of my skinny jeans from last year. I bought them after having my baby...I've since lost my baby weight and now need new skinny jeans. Are there any favorite skinny jeans out there? I was looking at the new LOFT skinnies today...cute! I always have to get the "short" version of any jeans I want to wear flats with because I have shorter legs and a long torso. I'm 5'6" tall so it's not like I'm a short person...for some reason my height just came in my torso. Anyhow, I digress...so here's how I looked when I walked out the door...
-Lily White Ruffled Chiffon Top-Nordstrom (Anniversary sale item!!)
-Long Sleeve Cardigan-Banana Republic-(Spring 2010--no longer online)
-Bootcut Jeans-Banana Republic Outlet (Fall 2008)
-Red flats-Target (Fall 2009)
-Necklace-Nordstrom (OLD--bought to go with my dress for Josh's graduation from dental school 3 years ago)
-Earrings-Kenneth Cole (via Macy's)
Tomorrow we have another busy day...gotta get my run in first thing before the kids wake up, and then we're going to the park in the morning, a doctor appointment for my one year old in the afternoon (well-baby check-up only), and then at some point I want to run to JoAnn to grab a few things...hope you all have a great day!!
