Thriftanista Style File: Animal print and peep toe patent

I buy clothing that just aren't appropriate for traipsing through the park with V. By traipsing, I mean casually strolling for all of 10 seconds and then it's all marathon running to stop V from falling off of something or pretend racing (even though it's pretend, I'm still faster and I always win).

This is yesterday's park attire. I think I need to take it down a notch since we'll be spending more time outside running around and playing in dirt/sand. I need to banish all low rise jeans from my closet. I mooned folks all over the park.

This prompted a thrift store excursion, of course. I found 3 pairs that are a little closer to my belly button. One of them being a vintage pair that are just above my belly button. I feel very Crissy Snow (Three's Company) in them.

I was hot yesterday in this jacket. Not HAUTE but hot! It was 80 degrees!!!! In Chicago! In March! What? I didn't want to take my jacket off though. The random tee I'm wearing underneath is shorter than the jacket. I was serving up enough backside already.

Zebra print jacket/shirt - Covington (thrifted)
Skinny jeans - Akira
Black patent flats - unknown (thrifted)
Yellow plastic "banana" bracelet - unknown (thrifted)
Are you waiting for high waist to trend again?
What's your park play momfit?

*I have a pair of Hudson jeans listed on eBay, check it out here.

You make me laugh...flashing people at the park huh??? I have found some awesome jeans at Old Navy and also some Lee jeans that are both mid rise, so I don't flash any cracks! hehe. Love the outfit though, very HAUTE!

Funny that I found you through WWW. I am a notorious mooner with my pants.

I have to say I actually prefer mid rise jeans, I wore one too many pairs of rockies in my rodeo queen days to do high rise again.

Hope you'll stop by.

Thanks for commenting everyone. My old new jeans are washed and ready to go! Now I have to find more appropriate shoes and ditch the jacket at the playground!
