Is it st. pactricks day? No? Well this would be my outfit if it was. Or it's a everyday outfit. 

I think the last time I wore this jacket on the blog, I was very very pregnant! So I'm so excited to be pulling it out for another round of non-maternity style. I love that the military jacket trend is always one that starts popping up when the weather begins to turn. I have always been fond of the olive green variety. That being said I decided to do a full on green assemble. As you can probably tell with my outfit choices, I like to stick to a color scheme and just run with it. A monochromatic look doesn't always have to involve black or white. Contrasting shades of green (or any color) can make a matchy matchy outfit look more put together.

Not to mention this outfit just makes errand running a little more glamorous. Yes, I am absolutely that person that is overdressed 95% of the time. When time permits I love nothing more than getting ready for the day. Or there are days like yesterday where we were scrambling to get out of the house and I didn't actually get dressed until later in the afternoon. I mean that counts right? Just a couple outfit changes before school pick up.

BUT! I think I might try out a new formula, you see, many of the moms come to the drop off line in their workout clothes. They probably in fact go from the school parking lot to the gym! I mean why wouldn't they? I don't go to the gym, but I think they are on to something here. I could easily "look" like I have a treadmill in my future. So that might be it. Mornings equal leggings and some ultra stretchy long sleeve, and then a healthy sprinkling of clothing in the afternoon?

I like it.
