BLUE DAY - a day late

Hi There! Sorry missed a day, both kids are sick and we are not doing so great either. So we didn't get dressed at all yesterday. Today was not much better but I had to get a post out as I don't want to be 2 days behind in the challange.
This outfit by the way somewhat looked better in reality than in photos. 

I got the idea of adding pearls over a button down from Bee in Atlantic Pacific. This trench belongs to my mom. She leaves it a my house so she has a jacket if she needs to I guess. Actually I don't know why it is in my coat closet but I do use it occasionally too. Today was rainning so it was perfect.

I thought this sparkly fedora would be perfect. I had no time to style my hair or put make-up on so the hat was good to hide it all.

My mom took these photos across the street from my house since my side of the street had trash cans lined up as it is trash day.

Black Trench Coat - Mom's
Blue button down - Victoria's Secret
Skinny cargo pants - Target
Oxfords - Forever 21
Pearl and gold chain necklaces - Mom's as well
Long pearl necklace - mine but not sure where I got it...
Hat - from a vendor during wine tasting

Today's Activities: My son was up on and off all night long with upset stomach and a horrible cough. Ended up sending my husband to the guest bedroom so he can get some sleep and took my son in bed with me. You know he was sick cause he kept saying 'hug me'. He is usually not a cuddly kid. Woke up feeling horrible. I called the Dr's office as soon as they opened and got a 9:30 AM appt. Thank goodness my mom was not working and met me there to help. It was very fortunate cause afterwards it was pouring rain and she picked up the perscriptions and I took the kids home. Imagine if I had to take out 2 sick fevery kids out in pouring rain, wait in line at the drug store than come back out. That would have been awful.
My mom stayed the whole day so we can entertain the kids. After pain releivers they did feel a bit better.
The good thing with staying home and having help is I finished 3 loads of laundry, paid all the bills and picked up. I sure hope they feel better tomorrow. My daughter has an ear infection and my son has chest congestion they are both on antibiotics.
