Thriftanista Style File: Hot pink blouse and leather vest

On Tuesday, I went on a momcation with Lady Terror. I lucked up on screening passes to see The Five Year Engagement. Afterwards, we went to the super adorable Beauty Bar to partake of the hosted bar while perched on a barstool dancing the night away.

I love how djs play all the songs I enjoy at the beginning of a set. A great mix of old school r&b, hip-hop and reggae and then they move to the new music that I no longer understand. I can have my party and be home by midnight. 

My party girl mama self likes her beauty sleep.

What I Wore

This outfit doesn't thrill me. It's doing a lot and not in a good way. Vest closed over blouse? No bueno. All of the black against the pink weren't working for me either. My shoes looked blah. I didn't have time to change though. I was running late to catch the free movie. Priorities. 

Since I'm trashing this outfit, I may as well discuss the pant and toe issue again. I look in the mirror, no toe. When I look at the picture, I see toe. These are knit pants and not leggings. There's a zipper and a button. It's a thick knit too. If I wear a longer top to cover the crotch area, it adds a lot of bulk in places I don't want to see bulk. What to do? Should I burn these pants?

For modesty's sake, I did lots of photo editing to erase the toe!

When was your last momcation? Where and what did you do?
Do you have knit pants? What do you wear them with?

I don't know that the toe in knit trousers can ever be erased.

But I do like the hands clasped on your knees.

Haaa! I should burn the knit pants. Noted. She loves to get in the shot. I normally take pics while she's sleeping.

I think she may steal the show. You look great and she is yummy. It's so nice to find other mommies to be inspired by.

Thank you. I see your little one likes to be in the pic too! The camera is like a magnet.
