Green Jeggings, Stripes and Cozy On Top

Today is a very long day for me. The day consists of going to work, then to the aerial training, then contortion class, and then out to dinner with a friend to celebrate her birthday. I needed to make sure that whatever I wore, it could transition to a fun night out.

I decided to wear these army green jeggings and cute booties. From there I thought about this striped shirt and continued to layer that with a long cardi, scarf and faux suede jacket. It's fun, stylish and work appropriate.

Many of you have mentioned my pearly whites. I'm so flattered by the compliments on my smile, but today I tried really hard to pose sans smile. Just to see what would happen. It worked a little. But it just looks like I'm holding back a smile. It was just a little experiment to see if I could stand in front of a camera without grinning from ear to ear. Fail.

Jeggings: Gap
Top and scarf: Loft
Sweater: H&M
Jacket: Vera by Vera Wang for Kohl's
Booties: Nine West
Sunglasses: Elizabeth and James
Bag: DKNY via TJ Maxx

Jealous of your outfit AGAIN. What do you know. I especially like the color palette.

We're total opposites. I just can't stop mean muggin' the camera. It's crazy.

Enjoy your evening!

I think everyone just looks so much prettier when they smile!

I love your jacket, and this outfit is awesome. You know what would also work here instead of the striped top? leopard.
