Ice Cream Social

Somewhat of a menswear outfit today. The inspiration came form the instyle magazine from a few months back:

I first tried this with my Banana Republic tweed vest but it was too high in the neck and you couldn't see the plaid shirt at all. So went with this crop tan vest instead. I am not hating the outfit but not super crazy about it either...

I love this orange cardi but dying to find a crimson/cinnamon color  for the new season.

These Booties are actually not super high and I was able to wear them in the afternoon to kids' music class. In the morning to the swimming class though I wore the shorter heeled military boots instead. I forgot to take photos with this canvas shoulder purse which went really nicely with the outfit. Got this for summer from H&M.

Orange Cardi - Gap
Crop Vest - Target
Plaid Shirt - Forever 21
Cargo Pants - J Crew
Peep toe booties - Juicy Couture

Another outfit today, this one is my mom's. She said she was inspired by my outfit yesterday. She just got this white skirt from a thrift store for the summer but when she saw me pair it with a chunky winter sweater created this ensemble. Looks so cute...

Today's Activities: We hung out at home then my mom came to go to the swim class with us. That 30 minutes of pool tired them all out. We came home for lunch and naps. Tried a new Rachel Ray recipee for dinner while they napped. Once again took almost the entire nap time to cook.  Went to music class in the afternoon. Then with my friends bought the kids frozen yogurd (they see it as ice cream) and had them eat that inside a nearby starbucks. Amazing how with ice cream they can all sit quietly around the table. My sister came over to hang out with us and have dinner. The recipee did turn out good but not sure if it was worth all the effort and my son did not like it.

Here are all our kids enjoying ice cream after music class:


  1. that's your mom?! how cute is she! tell her i want that skirt!! lol.

  2. You look SO cute! I love that vest over the plaid shirt and that's your MOM?! Wow! She's just as gorgeous as you are!

    In regard to your question about Universal - we've been taking her there since she was 6 months old. There aren't a lot of "rides" for her but she can do Shrek and watch the Beetlejuice show. It's also Mardi Gras so she'll see the parade and watch the B52s in concert. :)

  3. You really took the inspiration and made the outfit your own. BRAVO!:) The cardigan is so great, I love the pop of color! And your mom looks SO YOUNG!!!Good genes run in the family, huh? ;)

  4. Your mens inspired outfit looks great especially softened up with orange cardigan and love the boots with it. İ love the picture of the kids eating ice cream ans sitting together like adults!
    Thanks for displaying my phota and thanks for all those of you for your compliments yes İ guess it is about good genes my mom looked very young too;) But it is also all about how you feel yourself and dress young if you can carry yourself well and it works.

  5. And İ forgot to point out that İ knitted that cable knit sweater İ am wearing myself !!of course years ago when İ had a lot more patience. İ have't wore it in years and when İ saw Daphne's blog yesterday İ dug it out from the trunk to pair it with my newly found summer skirt from my thrift store fro $6.00!!!new with the tags on it...

  6. I super heart your booties and your mama is stylin'!

  7. Love that orange cardi and your mom is a hottie :)

  8. Now I know where you get your good looks from - you are both BEAUTIFUL and super stylish!! :)

    btw - the party I am planning is for my mommy group - I just joined the organizer board as the event coordinator :)

  9. Love these 2 outfits, I just saw in a magazine today that orange is the trendy color for this season, well done !!
