Steppin' Out Saturday: Girls in Flats

This weekend we stepped out and took my dad to lunch in honor of his birthday.  Steak
and shrimp and two sweet little granddaughters: what a better way to spend a
birthday?!  Isabelle wore a blazer my mother-in-law gave her for Christmas and Brees
wore her furry Minnie Mouse jacket.  I was inspired by Mandy from Juggling Chic last
week and how she managed to style a short sweater.  After birthing two babies, there are
just certain tops that now hit me at a very unflattering place on my hips, making me shy
away from ever wearing them.  But, when layered over a button-up and adding a
funky layering twist, I suddenly was able to breath new life into my short shirt
wardrobe.  And this, my friends, is one of the beautiful things about blogging:
gaining inspiration from real life women.  Body issues?  I have them, just like everyone
else.  But then a simple idea like layering comes to mind and I suddenly feel as
beautiful as every single one of us should.  Cheers to that!
Here's what we wore on this chilly wintry weekend:
Button-up: Polo by Ralph Lauren
Sweater: Old Navy
Jeans: Aeropostale
Flats: Target
Top and Corduroy skinnies: The Children's Place
Blazer: Gifted
Flats: Payless
Top and leggings: Target
Shoes: Keds

You look awesome! The pants, the shoes ... I dig the button-down layered look -- it was pretty much my uniform a few years back when I lived on the East Coast. It's a nice, easy way to look polished with minimal effort, right?

Love your outfit! You pull off purple jeans so good. I was looking at a similar pair at Target (of course!).

Belle and Brees are little dolls.

You all look fab! Love those colored jeans - I might even be tempted to try the shirt/sweater look again once it cools down here :)

Mandy said...
