No, that is not a fancy new wrist accessory on my left hand. That is a peacock.
Jeans: Current/Elliot, thrifted (similar)
Loafers: Target (similar)
I'm always amazed when I see peacocks strutting around the zoo with the seagulls out in the open, like they own the place. But, I digress. On to the clothes. There is truly nothing exciting about this outfit. It's your basic weekend wear. But it does have a strategy behind it.
1) Leopard loafers at the zoo because, duh.
2) Comfy boyfriend jeans carry me through the fall and probably won't last me through the whipping winds of winter, so I may as well get my use now. Plus, when you attend Boo at the Zoo with a running toddler, you know that you are going to have to dodge and duck around thousands of candy-crazed Spidermans, Hulks, princesses and furry animals. No time for muss and fuss.
3) Neutral tones, so I can be the backdrop to this guy's shining day:
My little Buzz Lightyear. I love him to infinity and beyond.

And when I say warm, I mean scorching hot and sweaty.
Cookie Monster costumes: Amazon
If you are a reader of this blog, then you know that I have a slight obsession with Halloween. It's hard to believe that this time last year, my little boy was hanging out in utero, completely unaware that he was being dolled up as a monster for my own entertainment. This year, he's still my little monster, but now he could partake in the fun. I decided to go with Cookie Monster since Keagan lights up everytime he hears Cookie's grumbly voice. Plus, C is for cute and that's good enough for me.
I joined in as Cookie Mommy and my husband was Cookie Daddy. But like any new parents who haven't quite figured out how to get out the door without creating a tornado of chaos, we didn't plan so well. We forgot Cookie Daddy's headpiece, meaning we had to trade off for picture purposes. We also didn't plan for the fact that it would be 75 degrees on Halloween in California and wearing polyester fur costumes were like placing ourselves in a sauna. We took our pictures as quickly as possible (hence, the quick snap before running out the door), groaned at the heat and immediately stripped them off. But these types of memories are worth it. As Cookie Monster would say, "Me like it."
