Going Mini

This is my 1 of 3 skirts I bought this season. Since this a-line full skirts are in style I looked for types that have pockets and made of material or cut that will not fly up in the wind. This one came in white as well but I loved this dark jean color. The tone on tone flower stiching adds inderest. The elastic waist is perfect and comfy. I have 4 looks that go with this skirt. It is shorter than the hot pink one I wore a week ago though so I think I will reserve these looks for weekend where I have my husband to help with the kids. I had to make sure I didn' bend down straight but compeletely bent my knees to go down to not falsh anybody. The sheer peachy pink blouse is an H&M purchase from NYC from years ago where we didn't have the store in San Diego. The brown goes very nice with that peachy color as well. The suede flats were purchased when I bought my tigh high boots from steve madden as part of a 'get the 2nd pair 50% off' so they came out to be $15! I was going to go with a brown bead necklace but then I noticed this bone colored one in the back and thought it added more interest. Although it looks like one of my original exotic pieces it is actually from F21. The cream/bone colored bangles (again from F21) compliments the necklace. And of course must have a cardigan (I am always cold) and this shrug number pulled all the cream pieces together.

Jean colored a-line skirt - Charlotte Rousse - $15
Sheer Blouse - H&M
Cream Shrug - can't remember
Belt - The Limited
Necklace, bangles - F21

Today's Activities: Kid Ventures with family, playtime at UTC mall followed by lunch where we were joined by my husband's parents (as well as his grandparents who are staying with us until Monday) who drove from LA. After unsuccessfull naps, where this time neither kid slept! we went to Coronado island's ferry landing area to watch the boats, birds and play. Dinner at home with the family. Hate no nap days. The kids are a basket case! Hoping for a better day tomorrow.


  1. That is such a cute outfit...I really love the skirt. I totally hear you on the bending over I had to completely change my outfit because bending over was dangerous and I was going for supper at my in-laws (my mother in-law strongly believes in modesty..apparently I don't..haha).
    Just thought I would tell you that you have great legs!!

  2. Oh, nothing is worse than no nap days! You look fantastic. I really like this colour on you! I've always done the knee bend bend. I think because I am one to wear short short skirts! Oh dear.

  3. That skirt is just lovely! And I love how you paired it with a blousy top!


Love to hear your thoughts...
