Daily Mom Style 11.27.13

The weather outside is frightful . . .

And so are my Daily Mom Style photos.

I hate taking pictures indoors, now that I’ve seen how much better the outside ones are. But when it’s cold and windy and rainy, well, there isn’t much choice! You’ll see that I keep trying different spots in my house, trying to find one with decent light. It’s hard b/c it largely depends on time of day (and which room isn’t too cluttery!)

Plus, my kids have taken most of these pictures so some are blurry. Oh well! This is real life I’m living here. I’m not a fashion model. I’m a 40-something housewife who is trying to keep it together . . . and some days are better than others!

So let’s go. I’m gonna keep this week short and sweet cuz mama’s got stuff to DO!

I was trying to find good lighting to show how red the boots are, but nothing really worked. I had to find my kids in the basement (see below) to get another shot. LOL!! Now you see how we really live. We are slobs.

JAFA Boots Style 2040 (sent to me as a sample, omigosh, I’m in LOVE!!!)

About JAFA Boots: JAFA Boots and Shoes are from Israel and have been in the US for less than 2 years now. The owner of JAFA, Karen Crivelli first found the incredible shoes of Israel on a vacation 3-1/2 years ago and knew she had to share them with the women here in the U.S. She says:

My growth has exceeded my expectations, and I have expanded into the Canadian market as well. JAFA is a fashion forward comfort line (what a concept!) and can be found in some of the best independent shoe stores and boutiques across the US and Canada. In Philadelphia, JAFA can be found at all the Benjamin Lovell stores, who happens to be one of my original and best customers.

I am sold, hook line and sinker. These boots aren’t only gorgeous, they are comfortable too — and you all know how picky I am about my shoes right now!!

Now, this here’s my first attempt at leggings since I wore them all the time back in 1992. I don’t know why I find it so awkward. I wear running tights without thinking twice about it. But I feel like this look is awfully . . . leggy. First I tried them with my ankle boots, and then I thought perhaps the knee-high boots would be better. I still feel like it looks like I forgot to wear pants. Tell me what you think. Maybe when it comes to leggings, my ship has sailed.

gray UGGs, old (I have found nothing similar *sad panda*)

I do, however, LOVE the Hue leggings that I ordered at the recommendation of Pinterest Told Me To. The wide waistband prevents any muffin top, and they are nice and thick and provide full coverage. There’s nothing worse than thin, see-through leggings!!!

As far as the top and the overall look of the outfit, I know it’s not as flattering as a more structured ensemble, but it’s comfy and casual for my days at home. If I decide the leggings are a bust, I’ll definitely wear it with skinny jeans.

I’ll be back on Black Friday with the best sales and deals from around the Web! If you’re not already, be sure to subscribe to my email updates so you don’t miss anything!

Until then, I hope you all have a fantastic and fashionable (and most of all relaxing) Thanksgiving!!!
