Pink Lizard Lace

Hi. In case you forgot because it’s been a while, it’s me! Super duper close up. Freckles, covered up zit, crooked tooth and all.

I want to show you how these hot pink flowers in our room match my outfit.

Wait for it…

Tada! Pink Lizard Lace Tights! My six year old named them.

When I put these in the cart to buy them at Target my four year old was perplexed and sweetly concerned for me (I think). “Mommy,” he said. “You will look like a clown in those.”

Then when I put them on for this outfit, I asked my six year old, “Do you think I look like a clown in these?”

“Oh no Mommy,” he assured me. “You don’t look like a clown.”

That made me feel better…for about two seconds until he said. “You look like a pink lizard.” (great.)

So here’s the Pink Lizard Lace Outfit.

This belt was a gift. I tried to take it back because I couldn’t imagine what I could wear with it (like four years ago). I’m finally wearing it for the first time. So, lesson learned: keep things around—ya never know.

Since my tight were so subtle I thought I’d bring the pink touch into my outfit with these accessories.

Aside from the belt, this outfit is an example of when I purchase pieces that I love or am drawn to for some reason or another—be it the color, texture, print—I find that they come together to create looks that surprise me and I end up really liking—and it wasn’t even planned.

looks good together!
nothing I buy individually ever seems to go together with anything. (except basic metal colored earrings)

I love lizards!

Cute with the lace peeking out of your cardigan! Also love how you put your bracelets over your sleeves -- neat idea.
