Mommy in Stilettos oh my...
The cuff bracelet is a gift from my Grandpa who found it an antique bazaar in Turkey. The ring is my mom's who gifted it to me when my daughter was born when I named her middle name after her.
Pants - BCBG - BCBG store on sale - $80 (very old)
Tank Top - F21 - $20
Cardigan - La Redoute catalog (no longer in US) - $30
Boots - Escada - from Century 21 in NYC - $400 on sale (from the days I had no kids, good double income and a small mortgage)...
Necklace - Charlotte Rousse - $10
Mommy group playdate at a friend's house in the morning. Egg coloring and decorating playdate at another friend's house in the afternoon. [I have a big group of mommy friends with kids same age as mine, makes it easy to do lots of playdates].
TIP OF THE DAY: Don't be afraid to utilize your old work clothes...
If you are like me and have been holding onto your work clothes, don't just cast them aside. The silk blouses look great when paired with jean shorts, dressy cardigans over cargo skirts or a-line skirts, suit pants can be worn with other more casual items and of course the suit jackets (blazers) are great to layer on top of summer dresses and skirts and even shorts. Obviously they are not very practical as they need dry cleanning but it is better to use them then let them sit in the closet. I have added a couple outfit ideas to my list the other day with such items so can't wait to showcase them soon.
