Today is the first day of the Color Rotation Challange hosted by Colleen at Scrap and Run.Here is the order of colors:
I know it is hard to see but I can assure you the silk blouse is pastel pink...
This blouse is my grandmothers! I love wearing her clothes as it makes me feel closer to her memory. I added the tweed vest for interest and then the broch was a last minute idea. The pink and gold cuff bracelet watch was perfect as well.
I love pairing pink and burgandy. And these skinny cords as I always state is just an amazing purchse from Forever 21 at $14!
Trying a new corner of my house as you can see. This is the back corner of our dining room. The light was good here this morning so there you go a slightly new spot.
If I stood by the table though see how the light catches...Kind of cool...
Silk ruffle front blouse - Vintage - Grandmother's
Tweed Vest - thrifted Banana Republic
Skinny cords - Forever 21
Boots - Newport News Catalog
Broch - old not sure
Watch - Betsey Johnson
Today's Activities: Went to preschool and as I mentioned yesterday I gave a presentation on fashion tips for mommies to the preschool mommies. The structure of the school is a group of parents take on individual tasks (such as art, outdoor supervision etc...) while the other group sit through a discussion half of the class thent hey rotate. Therefore I had to give the presentation twice so both groups can participate. And tomorrow I will do it twice again to the M&W class. It went pretty well. I started with what made me start my blog then gave tips on shopping which included closet organizing then on dressing and how to start it. When I paused to ask if anyone had questions man did the comments started coming. As I suspected a lot of mommies who are in jeans and a tee, or sweats want to dress up more at heart but don't. It was a great discussion. I hope it was helpful.
Afternoon is going to be running errands and a badly needed grocery shopping. We are out of fruit. Oh no, what will my son eat now!? :)
Here is my daughter once again posing like mommy...They really ask for this I don't make them.
I just love ruffles and tutu skirts with sneakers. And leggings are a must to keep those baby knees scratch free...
