Skating On Thin Ice

Coat:  Tulle (old, cute options here, here), Plaid Shirt:  J.Crew (almost sold out ~ similar here) Chambray:  Old Navy (old, similar here), Jeans:  Forever 21 (similar here), Boots:  Franco Sarto (old, LOVING this pair for just $59.99!!), Belt:  Forever 21, Necklace:  Gorjana, Earrings:  Tory Burch, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban
My husband and I took our nephews skating this past weekend ~ *correction* ~ my husband skated with them while I watched.  He played ice hockey in high school and is extremely graceful and light on his feet.  My nephews who are 3 and 5 years old, take skating lessons and in my opinion are both on their way to the NHL.  I, on the other hand, have a hard enough time walking on solid ground.  And, no, they were not actually "skating on thin ice" as the post title implies, but "skating on a perfectly safe frozen solid pond" did not have the same ring to it.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

  3. I was so upset to see that the plaid shirt was sold out from J.crew but I cannot wait to order the Timberland one it is almost identical to the J.crew one! Yay!

  4. Love the look of layered plaid & chambray! If you can't skate, at least you can look super stylish watching the boys on the ice - and that's the important part ;)

    So glad I found you through the blogger collective pin board!

  5. Love the layered button downs! I never remember to do that! Since I own that J Crew plaid I may have to try it with chambray ;)

    1. Thanks Christine ~ layering is essential for the cold temps in NJ!! This day was actually above freezing but if it was super-cold, I probably would have even added a slim-fitting turtleneck under the shirts!!
