Let the good times begin!

This was such a simple outfit inspiration from the following tiny tiny photo in a magazine...

I love having simple outfit like these in my list because even though I would love to dress super cool everyday I have to be realistic given my full time mommy status.

The shot above is my favorite pose today. Finally an action shot that looks good.

I wish I had the time to take photos of this outfit in layers. Because it starts so basic and boring with just black leggings and the oatmeal colored cotton babydoll top. Then you add the cream colored infinity scarf for a bit of interest. Then the Jacket which adds some shine. And finally the animal print shoes totally take the outfit from boring to cool. I wore my animal print flats first part of the day with kids.

Loving these shoes more and more everytime I wear them. For $27 totally affordable for following trends.

The babydoll top by the way is just such a soft cotton top that feels great against the skin. Again good old Forever 21 can always be relied upon to find basic layering pieces at pretty much stupid prices.

Crinkled patent leather jacket - vintage from Thread Show (great find for $40!)

Black leggings - H&M

Today's Activities: I am just filled with excitement right now. Hopefully within an hour or so my best friend is picking me up and we are going to start our girl's trip. I am finally excited and not stressed because I finished everything I needed to do today. All the laundry is done, bills are paid, dinner is cooked (for hubby and the kids) and I am all packed (tried out all the outfits and all). I even colored my hair this morning! For the first time I used a semi-permenant color with no harsh chemicals so it won't ruin my brazilian blowout. It won't last as long but healthier for my hair. Theoratically I still have 1 more month of my blowout. I can see it is fading out a bit but I offset that by using a bit more treatment products. When I first got it I had to scale back on the products cause my hair didn't need it.  So far so good.  Took the kids to the indoor play area for some play time and fed them lunch there. After naps had them hang out in the house so I can get everything done. I am taking my laptop and camera with me but not sure if we'll have internet connection at the house we are renting so might not be able to post until Sunday night or Monday. Hope you all have a great weekend!
