ootd: finally

i am wearing: whbm striped keyhole back tee (similar), whbm ruffled wool coat, old navy red skinnies, coral necklace from my mom, f21 ring, target leopard scarf, marc jacobs bag and steve madden ballet flats.

so first of all…you know i wanted to call this post…”what’s black, white and read all over….a NEWSPAPER! har har har”. but, instead i went with “finally”. because i finally got to wear my red skinnies!!! AND it was cold enough to wear a jacket AND a scarf. ok, the scarf was a bit much but i was so matchy-matchy that i had to mix it up. i won a $500 (yes…$500!!!) white house black market gift card in a giveaway (thanks @asequindress) so i got to go on a major shopping spree! but when my mom saw the back of this top, she said….”it looks like your shirt is on backwards”. omg…i would die…lol.

    Haha- ok no, you could not wear that shirt backwards! I mean you could, but us mom’s have to keep the under boobage cutouts to a minimum. LOVE your hair!

    I love the ruffle sweater and I cannot wait to see what else you got at WHBM! Would you like for me to check my H&M to see if there are more of the blouse I am wearing today? I’d be happy to pick it up for you?

    Love the black&white top – the back is superb, and it looks really good teamed with the red trousers.

    Cute outfit! I like how you’ve paired the red jeans with a stripe top – I’m going to have to try that too.
