Day Twenty-five- Dinner With Friends

Take some time for people that matter.  Have a great evening out with some long-lost friends.
I’d start with your floral skirt-

Top off with a button-up shirt in a beautiful color-

Add your denim jacket-

And throw on some casual cowboy boots-

Enjoy the family that you can choose!

Day Twenty-four- Gardening

If you can’t wear kookie clothes when gardening, you just can’t period.  I would start with something trendy but maybe something you wouldn’t have the guts to wear anytime else… patterned leggings.
Sure you may feel a little like you’re in Desperately Seeking Susan, but who cares?

Here are some Monet inspired leggings-

Patterened Polyester Spandex Legging from American Apparel $40
Wowsa.  This picture is next to risque.  What’s worse is that I think I knew a lady who once had a couch in this print.  Yikes!
Throw on a yellow or blue tee and cover your tush with your hoodie-

Don’t forget some funky wellies!

Day Twenty-two- Dinner Hostess

Better get that meat defrosting because company’s coming.  And you’re the cook.  Hopefully you have at least one dish you can make well.
What you wear will be the last thing on your mind, so dress early and keep it easy.
I’d start tonight with your mint sweater-
Honeycomb cable sweater
Combine with your floral skirt (you knew this combo was coming, didn’t you?)-

Make it look like you really thought about this by adding on a big belt-

Beaded Stretch Belt with Hand-Carved Buckle from Newport-News $80
Yes, that is a lot of money to spend on a belt but this one is pretty amazing.  (You can always wait for it to go on sale.) And don’t forget, this will go over your sweater.  And don’t let the ribbons of your skirt show.  You don’t need two belts.  🙂
Go barefoot!  Contessa!

Day Twenty-one- Soccer Match

You could seriously be freezing or perhaps peeling off your sweater.  Be prepared for the weather by dressing in layers.
First off, your cardi sweater, buttoned up and over maybe a little cami-

Limited sweater
Add on some skinny jeans that you’ll feel good (especially when sitting in a camping chair)-

If you get a chill, take along your trench-

Go team!

Day Twenty- Baking Day

You’re testing it out to see if today you can make Martha Stewart-worthy cookies.  Or maybe a Julia Child souffle!  Either way, you’ll be in the kitchen most of the day.
I’d start with your skinny jeans.  Maybe wearing them will give you incentive to stay out of the cookie dough.  (I know, it won’t work for me either.)

Skinny jeans from 6pm
Add a tee for a top-

Feel like a true culinary classic in a retro apron-

Don’t you kinda miss aprons?  I remember my mom always wearing one on Sunday mornings.
When you are done baking, be sure to call me over!

Day Nineteen- Doctor Visits

It’s well-checkups, dentist appointments and eye exams, oh my!  It’s hard work keeping everyone healthy!
Wear an outfit that won’t wither in the waiting room.
I’d start with a button up (be sure to tuck it in!)-

Ruffle Button Down Short Sleeve Top from Loft $45
I’m a total sucker for a cute little white top.
Add a pop of color to this outfit with this belt-

Loop that belt through your flared jeans-

You don’t have to be in church to be a Christian, but a Christian will be in church!

Day Sixteen- Storytime

You’re off with the kids to a magical place where your imagination takes flight- the library.  Just being there makes you feel more inspired and that possibilities are endless.  I think it may be the cure for the winter blues!
More than likely you’ll be chasing your youngest around the place, so let’s keep things comfortable but sassy.
I’d pair your printed blouse-

Sweet Pea top from Von Maur
