Oh to be young again

Taking advantage of the contuing cold weather to wear some of the warmer outfits from the list. This was a chictopia inspiration:

Her colors a bit different as her tights are dark orange and the hat green. I stuck with burgandy tights and a purple hue scarf but a black hat...

I probably could have tied the scarf a bit but these photos were taken very fast before we left the house so didn't even have a chance to really check out the outfit in the mirror...

This is my new hat from F21 by the way, I call it the floppy fedora as it has a wider brim but the base is fedora style. Love it. I have it paired in countless outfits both fall/winter and spring/summer...

Cardigan and hat - Forever 21
Mod Dress - Thread Show
Scarf - from Turkey
Tights - We love colors
Loafers - Via Spiga

Today's Activities: The grandparents did not wake up early and did not want to rush out or come with me to the kids' preschool. I didn't feel good about leaving them home alone so we didn't go. Helped them with laundry and breakfast for a while. The weather was great though full of sun so we took the kids to a big park. They ran around like crazy playing in the sand and my daughter climbing every structure she can and my son running around.

After naps I wanted to go to the play area but they were no up for that either so we stayed home. I went a bit stir crazy as I can't stand being in the house with the kids for this long. Had a nice dinner and gave the kids quick showers. Will be playing our last night of cards with them before they head off to Tucson for a month vacation.

My daughter playing in the sand at the park:
She is a typical CA girl, loves to be barefoot and wear sunglasses...
