Wine Women and Song

 Saturday night's outfit to my friend's chorus concert with friends and my mother in law.
The inspiration was from Who What Wear website:
 I liked the idea of a looser tank over the chiffon pants. Unfortunately though I didn't have a black silky tank top so decided to go with my bronze metallic top instead….












Top - J Crew
Necklace - Ann Taylor LOFT
Pants - Threadsence
Belt - from Turkey
Platforms - Luxury Rebel
Sunglasses - Vogue

SATURDAY:
Had a day filled with soccer games in the morning followed by swimming at home and ballet class.






After all the activities left my hubby and his father to BBQ and have dinner with the kids while my mother in law and I got dressed and went up the hill for a 'Wine Women and Song' event where my friend sang with her amazing chorus.
They were breathtakingly good. It was just pure joy….

Punk

 My outfit Thursday was inspired by this:
 Graphic black and white tee over the tartan plaid jeans worked out great.
I added some sparkly studs and slip on sneakers for the full cool effect….
Got sooo many complements on the pants from people at my kids' school….









Tee - Zara (birthday gift from my sister)
Pants - Rock Republic
Sneakers - Sam Edelman
Purse - DKNY
Necklace - Forever 21

THURSDAY & FRIDAY:
Volunteered at my daughter's class in the morning then came home to start working on the garage a little bit. Did the main work on Friday but had to clean out the little stuff like my daughter's art supplies on Thursday to save time.
Then met my parents for lunch and went back to school top ick up the kids.
Had a bit of time at home then it was off to Soccer Practice for my daughter then dinner at Rubio's…

FRIDAY was the big Garage clean-up day. Every single item was under a half inch of dust in there.
Emptied every single item first, hosed off things that withstand water and let them dry under the sun and wiped things that can't be washed. Had to sweep twice then mop with soap then rinse the floors. My arms were aching. Then started putting everything back at which time my mom came to help out. Finally finished it and got showered and dressed to pick up the kids and welcome my in-laws for a weekend visit…
The best reward was them taking the kids to dinner and putting them to bed while my husband and I went out for a date night! :)

Matchy Matchy

 My outfit Wednesday was inspired by this photo where a blogger was creating many outfits using 5 or 6 pieces...

Liked the simple combination, definitely too matchy matchy but sometimes it is a change of pace for me….







Top - Anthropologie
Pants - Zara
Sandals - C Wonder
Purse - Steve Madden
Ring - Swatch

WEDNESDAY:
Worked on a few drawers in my room as far as my house cleansing project goes, it was half day for the kids so picked them up and they played leisurely for a while on their own at home.
After homework took my son to swim practice followed by a 2.5 hour soccer practice. Good thing is our carpool plan has started so I just had to drop him off and come back home with my daughter. She enjoyed a long solo bath then we browsed the 'American Girl' doll catalog together and had some quality time.
