What To Wear // To Visit Santa

What I wore to make our trek for Santa pics last week (before the deep freeze hit). I love our collection of kids+Santa pics I display every year. Frankly though, if Santa wasn't involved, none of these would be frame-worthy, and someone please tell me why they don't employ a baby wrangler &/or a photo stylist to get everyone positioned artfully & looking cute? The woman was literally telling my kids to look at the camera and say cheese. Ugh. Clearly, I took over and now an elf thinks I'm one of "those Eastside moms". Whatever.
This green bubble necklace was a 'must have' last year for some reason, but I've had a terrible time both wanting to wear it and pairing it with tops. I'm pretty sure I've settled on my ideal, the bold green tone on tone. 
The blouse, an $8 impulse buy (also purchased in black) has been such a staple. Whether a front/side tuck, or leaving as a tunic with skinnies, I've gotten both the green & black tops down to about .50/wear. 
Lets chat for a sec about this scenery. Most of you readers are local-ish (hey!!) & while a spectacularly sunny day, this is the standard beauty by which we're surrounded. I live by the water, so seeing the sun glisten on Lake Washington like this makes my day.
What I'm Wearing //
Green Rayon Blouse old Old Navy (similar or way nicer)
Morgann Sweater Jacket c/o Kris & Kate (20% off 1st K&K purchase w/ code 'glitterinthegrey')
NYDJ Coated Legging Jeans Nordstrom Rack (super similar
Green Bubble Necklace Ily Couture (also here for less)
Marc Jacobs Bag Nordstrom Rack (similar for less)
Black Booties | old Target
 
I like to think of myself as a person who makes plans, but the fact is, I'm always a last minute gal. One exception is getting Santa pictures (why that??!!) I can't fathom standing in the line on a weekend that you literally are parked in for an hour (more?). I had Chach home after her tonsillectomy & Aley-cat skipped pre-K so we could take care of this nonsense on a Tuesday at 10a. 
No line.
