Nothing really new to see here, you guys. You can never go wrong by mixing neutrals (burgundy is totally a neutral) – at least, not without a lot of effort. And, really, who has time for that kind of effort? You all know my beloved camel hair coat, which I have worn approximately exactly 106 times since buying it a year ago. Let’s see what’s going on under it.

My top is a McQueen-esque feather (?) print AllSaints top I found at consignment for $18, and my pants are from American Eagle because they make the most comfortable high rise jeggings under $50. (Technically, they’re $50, but let’s not quibble.) The cardigan I picked up at Winners, and I love this style because it’s basically a fancy blanket. A fancy blanket I can wear to work. The shoes are leopard print and … enough said. And, of course, we have my trusty MbMJ Mag, which is a bag all-star. Not a bad line-up all around, come to think of it.

  1. I’ve heard such good things about those American Eagle jeggings. Clearly the universe is telling me I need to get some of my own.

    Just started following your blog – you dress the way I want to! (Coming from another Canadian Mama of two…)

    • Welcome!! Thanks for reading and commenting – it’s great to hear from you guys πŸ™‚

      I like the jeggings because they’re stretchy but at the same time, they do a good job of holding, ahem, things in. They do stretch out, but a trip through the washing machine/dryer usually fixes that. I wear the “hi rise” (which comes up just below my belly button, so it’s not really high after all), and I like that it takes care of any “muffin top” issues.

      I do hate that I can never find them on sale, but even at $50, they’re a pretty good deal. Black skinnies like this are so, so versatile.
