Troop Leader

I had a bigger vision for today's outfit, however, my original skirt just didn't work. It was too wrinkled but the length was better. I pulled a skirt from the Second String a.k.a the back up. The length was not great, it was just too long, but I ran out of time and had to live with it. So I got the outfit on, and realized it was an "okay outfit", probably a solid 5.5.
It wasn't until I was dropping Little One off at preschool that I noticed with my jacket on I looked like a freaking Girl Scout Troop Leader. Proof is in the pudding. While I was a loyal Girl Scout back in the day, unless you are the age where you can still drink out of a juice box and have graham crackers after your nap, then it becomes a lot harder to pull off a with brown tights, a khaki skirt and a green jacket.
I even match the rug!

Corduroy Skirt: GAP (old, probably from when it was still THE GAP)
Belt: Same
Polka Dot Tights: GAP

haha..hilarious! I hate when I don't love my outfit but I'm running late and can't change it. I think you still look cute but yes, would've been cuter with a shorter skirt! Great blog btw!

In response to your comment on my post, perhaps I am sad b/c we have no money for me to shop? ;)

I want you to know how impressed I am with the fact that you are a mommy and so thin. You rock and so does your wardrobe.
