Sea Urchins

Trying a different format tonight with large photo posts. Let me know if you prefer large photos like these or the side by side format I was using. I also realize I am so outdate on my 'what is in style' lists on the right. Will update those soon. Not sure where my inspiration came from for today's outfit. I do like the combination of silk with leather. Plus it gets me wearing pink as part of the October challange. This jacket is thin enough to wear indoors if needed but it was too warm today anyway. It was rainning in the morning so I added the hat out of necessity but I think it looks cute. You can see no matter what I do these supposedly 'over the knee' boots never stay over the knee. I give up. This silk blouse is part of a set, it has a matching pleated silk skirt which I will wear this season with other things. It has this lavander sea urchin looking design on it. When I first put it on it was way too revealing in the front so added a lace cami underneath. I do like tucking in tops into skinny jeans to acheive that slimming look. But the top is pretty short and the jeans are pretty low so can't say they stayed tucked in all day. :) To offset the sweetness of the silk blouse I added a chain adorned belt and the chunky necklace.

Today's Activities: Went to preschool with the kids. Amazingly my son slept today during nap time! Yeay! Cooked and tidied up while they were sleeping. Afterwards we went to the indoor play place again. I am starting job searching as of today. Our house is not selling so I need to work. Lets see how I am going to swing applying for jobs while busy with kids. Hosted a friend over for dinner.


  1. Wow, sorry about the job hunting! Gonna be tough. But yay for your son napping. My toddler is sick but refusing to sleep now! GRR.
    And I like the bigger pictures as then can see more details of your outfits. :)


  2. I like the larger pictures because this way it's easier to see the whole outfit.
    As for your boots maybe you need to try getting them taken in at the top, or some elastic inserted at the top...I'm sure it wouldn't be too expensive if you went to a shoe repair person, or even a seamstress

  3. LOVE your outfit....cute hat...and YESSSSS to the larger pics..I can see you know:)
