day 8 of 30: the cool kid

It is really true that kids pick up on things you say and do, but noticing and commenting on your choice of tights you wore? I really stepped out of my comfort zone on this outfit. I had bought these tights at Kohl's on clearance for 2 bucks. {I got the blue ones too} I just could never bring myself to bust them out. But today was the day my friend! As I walked my kids to and from specials, I heard other girls in other classes saying sweet things to me. Maybe I should wear colored tights more often!

I really did feel like the cool kid at school today, all the popular girls noticing what I was wearing. :-)



(the tights really do look better in person, and do match my scarf really well. Even though it seems my pasty white knee caps are very well defined in those tights.)

PS- this gorgeous scarf was a gift from my now husband, then boyfriend when he went to India for 3 weeks for his job!

  6. You look gorgeous! I have some purple tights, too, that I never would have worn prior to having a blog.

  11. what a gorgeous gift! and i always love when younger kids and/or children check me out/compliment me. They are always so honest, so when they say something nice - it's always good! (:
