Ok let me start by saying thank you guys sooo much for all of your comments on Monday's post...it really does mean the world to me!!!! Then let me say that today's Copycat Lookbook post (where I find outfits I love and recreate them with pieces I already own) was the first time that I actually toned down a look (shocking I know). Now, I lurve me some Solange Knowles, I respect her fearless fashion sense and think she amazing....but I just could not bring myself to style this yellow dress with the leopard coat with pink and purple accessories.....nope, I just couldn't do it!!! I still love the yellow with the leopard though, obviously.

Then let me say that ok, I know this isn't really a "mom" outfit but I too have parties and events that I have to go to (ok so like once or twice a month) but still....and when I do get the opportunity to dress up I wear some leather gloves, a leopard coat and some heels mmmmk, mmmmk.  And I'm sure you noticed that Molly and I had some fun with this shoot....I mean I'm on a tennis court people, I couldn't help myself!

PS the winner of TheCover from graphique de france will be announced on Friday :)

And now for the necklace du jour.....The Stella & Dot Olivia Bib
