Same shirt, different day

I wore this brown blouse from JC Penney's on Wednesday under a green cardigan. It's got a great shape and is very basic so it goes with alot of my clothes.

The printed skirt is from Target and I've owned it for almost a year, yet this is the first time I've worn it on the blog. I confess, it's too big in the waist and I have it pinned, but a trip to the tailor and new elastic would remedy the situation better and since I bought it off the clearance rack for only $4.98 it's well worth the cost. Comfy, easy & cheap -- can't beat that!

Speaking of comfort, the much-worn brown boots from Target are ultra comfortable, I could walk for days in them. I will miss them once the warmer weather arrives. I think I'm a cold-weather person (as evidenced by so many outdoor pix throughout the winter, lol!)

The necklace is from JC Penneys and as I mentioned once before, it seems to go with a ton of stuff. I tend to do that with jewelry -- wear a piece to death for a while and then move on, more so than with clothes. I think once you have a pallate of colors established in your wardrobe, no matter how vast, more and more of your stuff seems to work together and be easily interchangeable. A good thing for a busy mom :)

Anyway, I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend -- we're in for some 60 degree weather 'round these parts which will be nice, especially for the kids...even if it means giving up my boots!
