PURPLE DAY


Well, here is purple for you! I usually do not like to be matchy matchy but couldn't resist overplaying the purple by going both top and tights in the same color.

I usually can't pull off a mini with the kids but these tights are so thick they are practically leggings, so it worked.

Added the zebra print shrug as I love the combo of black and white and purple together. This huge purple purse is a thrift find by my mom. I was going to use it as a diaper bag but it is actually bigger than I need. Currently I use it for an overnight bag or a very cute gym bag etc... It is huge.


How do you like my giant necklace? This was a F21 online purchase. Should have paid attention to the picture with the ruler that tells you the size. I just assumed it was smaller than this. But somehow it kind of works with this outfit. The top has some graphics on it in silver too.
These grey patent leather boots are almost 5 years old. I usually wear them under pants so you never get to see them completely.

Forgot to zoom in on my new headband. It is silver leaves over black. Looks really cool but it was giving me a headache after couple hours. I need to loosen it a bit.
Oh and a disclaimer: I did swap the booties for uggs majority of the day...

Today's Activities: Well, the good news is kids were feeling 90% better this morning. They had a solid night sleep and as a result so did we. But I still didn't think they were ready to handle a 3 hour outdoor class/activity so we were going to stay home but my son literally made a case as to how he was feeling great and that we totally could go somewhere but he just wasn't sure where and so I should pick it. I had to laugh. So we went to the indoor play area. They had a great time. They both took solid naps too so definitely we have turned around the corner I think. In the afternoon we did stay home. I was willing to take them to the park but they didn't they (well really my son) didn't think that was fun enough. Instead they played with my extra make up brushes dipping them in bowls of water and 'painting' the shower and the tub. They were getting soaked but having so much fun so I let them for a while. We had a nice dinner with my dad at night.

Oh on a side note, so while they were napping I was trying on these new sandals I am trying to decide on and instead started styling this super cute mustard dress I have from ruche.com. Since blogging it seems I am literally unable to just wear the dress on its own. I feel like I am not fully dressed if I don't layer or style. So I was on a roll. Created 4 different outfits with the same dress. Very excited about them.

Tomorrow might be a big day. My sister-in-law might get induced and might give birth to my nephew. I am just so excited for them. I have arranged my mom to cake over the kids shortly after preschool so I can go direct to the hospital. Lets see what happens. If I don't post you will know why...
