I am doing something I've never done before - wear leggings!  I think they look so cute on everyone else but always thought they wouldn't work on me because of my athletic calves. However, wearing riding boots covers them up nicely. I got the famous Hue ultra wide band gray leggings during Cyber Monday for $27 (had to size down to avoid knee wrinkles) and they arrived yesterday. I can now understand why some people would live in leggings - they're as comfy as yoga pants!

Also wearing a Caslon tunic I got for the fall challenge but never got around to wearing until now. I felt like the Zara vest interfered with the Dolman sleeves on the tunic so I left it off. Plus, the weather is in the upper 60's.

Guess what?!? This is my 3rd challenge and I finally got my first ever unprompted compliment from my hubby today. "You look nice! Get your pretty on!" he said with a smile. Woot woot!!! 😇 Feeling over the moon!  Happy Tuesday!

Looking at it now, I should have added in my tassel necklace to dress it up a bit.

Yesterday was the kickoff for the Winter/Holiday Style Me Pretty Challenge. It's not too late to join! Just click on the link or the graphic below:

Winter/Holiday Style Challenge Square

Once you join, be sure to join the Facebook group since that's where most of the fun is. You get to see how other people style the outfit of the day (OOTD) and can get tips, inspiration, and lots of encouraging feedback. I highly recommend it!

I posted my OOTD late yesterday since I received my new fur scarf and neutral gray sweater in the mail in the afternoon but didn't get to open the packages until well after my son went to bed. I was wearing a teal version of this Target Mossimo sweater with my leopard scarf and neutral flats before I got to play dress up.

What a great outfit to start off the challenge!

The scarf is from Nordstrom and I love how super soft it is. Feels like the most luxurious thing I've ever owned. I tried it on with the red sweater (Target had a BOGO60) and felt like Mrs. Claus (possible outfit for Xmas card)! Target ultrasoft V-neck sweater, AG skinny jeans, Naturalizer riding boots from Macy's, Coach bag, Nordstrom pyramid stud earrings.
