Houndstooth & Python

Hey y'all!
I hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  I don't know about you but I got a little emotional all over again watching some of the Inauguration festivities just as I did four years ago.  I don't know what is more of an honor to Dr. King's dream than to have this Nation's first Black President to be inaugurated for the 2nd term on they day we honor his legacy.  Wow.

I have been forced to shop my closet more often lately and probably will be doing it more during the next few months.  My husband and I have been doing the most financially the past three months and now the boys' extra curricular activities is really attacking our pockets.  I don't complain because this is what I signed up for.  I just really hope the boys will eventually understand how much we sacrifice for them.  I digress. So we are dialing it back a lil.

Having said all this...in this outfit you have seen both tops before.  The houndstooth top is one of my "go to's" and to add a pop of color I decided to layer my red python blouse under it.

Houndstooth blouse& skirt: Thrifted    Python blouse:  NY&Co  Booties: Burlington
