Mama Style

For a day at the zoo, I wanted casual but dressy, warm but adaptable to unpredictable fall weather. I rummaged through two bins of fall/winter clothes (that I rediscovered since moving from Ogden to West Jordan three months ago) and I found my velvet skinny jeans that I'd completely forgotten existed. Happy day!

I scored them last winter on clearance somehow and almost always wore them with my boots. It's not yet cold enough for me to wear both velvet and boots in my outfits, so I dressed these waaaay down with slip-on sneakers (that I purchased free by redeeming Old Navy credit card points). And when in doubt about the weather, just layer. I had a white tee on underneath the sweater so I could easily be comfortable if our adventure in the zoo got too warm.

  1. I love your sense of style. I am digging the braid. I need to figure out how to rock a braid like that. I have bangs currently and it is a tad difficut. I need to head to the zoo again now that it has cooled down significantly.
