Clown Chic

So, I was excited to put together a crazy combo like this but I can't say I liked it that much. A bit clownish, hence the title.  But I like to stay committed to what I put on so it stayed.

The inspiration came from the Lucky's January issue: 

I put a white tank under the blouse to bring out the polka dots. I actually own overalls but wasn't willing to go that far for this outfit.

These are my new Bass b/w oxfords.

Today's Activities: We went to the indoor play area in the morning. As soon as the kids went down for their naps my mom came over so we could start watching the DVR'd wedding ceremonies. Of course we only got through half the wedding and they woke up and it was impossible to watch between bouncing and jumping kids.
Tonight was a preschool family movie night. My dad came over and we met my husband at a Baja Fresh by the school for a very early dinner at 5:15 pm. Due to no afternoon snack they were able to eat that early. Then my sister and her boyfriend joines us at the school. Every parent brought a treat or popcorn to share. Mommies were popping pocorn in the back while the teacher read stories than the kids did an art project. Afterwards they got a bag of pop corn then got to pick up from a wide variety of treats to add to the popcorn bag. Ate their snack outside, then watched 3 short movies (which they had the stories read to earlier) on a big movie screen in the main part of the class room. Most kids were in PJs and people had brought their pillows and blankets (I must have missed that part of the announcement but people shared with my kids). It was a fun but late night. Good thing we came in two cars cause my daughter only lasted 1 movie and told me 'mommy lets go to sleep' so my dad and I took her home. My husband and son came afterwards. My mom came back again so we could wath the rest of the wedding and the lifetime movie. It was fun. We said good night in a courtrsy motion!
