Get the low down


Monday's outfit was inspired by a look from Anthropologie: 

 White denim, metallic sweater with army green tee peeking out. Add my tan and beige wooden platforms and voila… I also added the two toned bronze and pewter necklace and a pop of dark yellow purse….

Closer to the Sun

 Ah, I almost lost these photos and another day of outfit photos in a laptop mishap. But thank goodness for apple tech forum's someone came to rescue and gave instructions to run a few repair functions on iPhoto and they appeared again! :)

Sunday's outfit was inspired by Fashion Diva Design website:

I loved the bright pops of yellow and red with the black and white outfit. For even more edge I went with my blk tuxedo striped white jeans and added red sneakers instead of red ballet flats….





 My best friend got me this lemon yellow Ann Klein purse for my b-day. Something she would never wear herself but totally knows my taste. Don't you love when friends with totally different tastes get you exactly what you would like. That is true friendship. :)




Boyfriend Blazer - Newport News
Top - From Turkey
Jeans - Kohl's
Sneakers - Nike (from J Crew)
Purse - Anne Klein
Necklace - some jewelry site I can't remember the name….

SUNDAY:
We had a leisurely morning of lounging around with the kids and watching a family movie and playing some board games. For Sunday football we invited one of my son's friends to come and watch at least half the Chargers game. Then took all of them to the movies for my son's other friend's birthday party.
They saw 'Box Trolls' and then had ice cream and played in the play area for a fun and low key birthday party.

SATURDAY:
We had once again a soccer filled day followed by ballet…


After a goal the kids rush for a hug in the middle of the field. Just adorable...


The whole team was finally present and in uniform for the first time so we captured a complete team photo…. [my son is the one holding a water bottle]

With her 'Teyze' (auntie):


 For these little ones the parents make a tunnel for them to run under after the game….

And once we cam back from ballet, I got to shower and change and met my book club ladies at a restaurant to discuss our last book 'The Paris Wife' by Paula McClain. 
It is a fictional book about Earnest Hemingway's first wife and the love of his life. A slow but a good read…
We had a brief discussion as half of us had read the book but it was a fun gathering over margaritas and Mexican food.
Then we went across the street to see 'Gone Girl' which was a book we read last month together. Some ladies had to skip it as they struggled with the story line so much that they hated it and felt depressed. I thought the movie was well done and a very good adaptation of the book. Perfect casting…



The next book we'll read is:
