Miss Lavender, she of the floral print skirt and polka dotted tights, appears to be on her way to get something.

Perhaps it’s her pink coat?

Found it! Hooray!

And her scarf, too.  Teal and pink. Works fine on a gloomy afternoon.

Below:  Miss Lavender does ‘Studied Insouciance’ better than anyone I know.

In·sou·ci·ance: nonchalance, lack of concern. Word for the day.  But who wouldn’t feel appropriately insouciant in a pink, wool coat?  Like anything else really matters.  (At least for the moment!)

Miss Lavender’s outfit:  denim top, Crossroads Trading, a consignment store in Costa Mesa, CA.  Skirt and shoes, Anthropologie.  Tights, Calzedonia, in Barcelona.  (Very) bright pink coat, Kling, also in Barcelona. Just so you know, we are sale stalkers, bargain lovers, and deal hounds. I seldom pay anywhere close to full price for anything! With four kids, that’s the way Eleven O’Clock Mom rolls.

What a fun look! Looks like something my own daughter would wear. I love how the building in the background of the coat pictures “goes”. And sales… Yes! Nothing like scoring a great deal, right?

Karen, I’d love to see a “What She Wore” post of your daughter! I know my girls would, too. Would she go for that?? And tell me about your deals?! (Sometimes the ‘deals’ come our way as gifts . . . like the skirt in these photos–a gift from the ever generous Grandma Linda, my amazing stepmom.) xx

Becky, Megan actually is trying her hand at writing a little fashion blog. It’s on the sidebar of mine. Looks, Life, Loves. She’s great at putting together different patterns and colors that I wouldn’t think of. I love that about fashion right now – that there really is no “in” style. Just choose a look you love, and you’re good!

Can’t wait to have a look at Megan’s blog! And I, too, love that about the fashion mood of the moment: if you’re feeling it, it works. xx
