Camo Cute

Camouflage Jeans Feb2013_0041 Feb2013_0029 I’m Wearing: Gap Denim Jacket, Banana Republic Sweater, Banana Republic Heritage Camo Jeans – old (similar and I love these from CAbi ), booties -old (I like these), Athleta Messenger Bag, Ray-Ban ‘Original Aviator’ . I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but OMG it’s still cold and disgusting in Chicago!!! You don’t believe me? This is what Mother Nature dished up for us this morning… IMG_8284 Yes, that’s snow and yes, it’s sticking to the ground and we’re talking it’s the middle of May here folks. Trust me, I wanted to move away. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it, but we’ve been trying to move away for five years now. We just made our final attempt here this spring (another reason for my absence from the Blogosphere) and it fell through AGAIN. We’re now doomed to eight more years of this icky Chicago weather. Don’t get me wrong, we love everything about where we live, except for the weather and the resulting “pent up in the house six months out of the year” lifestyle. …so back to reality. It’s been this terrible chilly cold here. Everyone’s still in long pants and closed-toe shoes, so allow me to show another transitional outfit. I love camo jeans for a cute “mom” runaround look. I paired these with a light-weight sweater and a denim jacket. For warmer weather, I’d love to pair them with a striped short-sleeve T (I love stripes with camo) or even a plain white T or tank. Add to that a pair of open-toe booties or even flip-flops and you’re good to go!

      Ya, this weather is for the birds! What can I say, it’s Chicago. Last week it was snowing, this weeek it’s in the upper 80’s…CrAzY!!

      Thank you so much for the compliment (and for the retweet on Twitter). I so appreciate your comments and your shares! I love the camo look, but sometimes worry at 47 I’m getting too old to pull it off. You make me feel like I/we can!
