This week's inspiraton photo was of Kim Kardashian:
Once again this wasn't so difficult for me. I think I have to admit at this point that I probably do have an above average closet with a lot and a lot of clothes. Which is why I can re-create a lot of outfits I see simply with stuff I already own. I always say, it is the years and years of shopping that is paying off.
So, for this outfit white shorts was no problem. For the top I used this taupe tunic top I had bought last year from F21. It has an attached schiffon vest a detachable rose pin (took that off) and a resin chain link and satin ribbon belt! I tucked in the tank and used the belt on the short's belt loops.
Used my $4 owl charm necklace to create the same look.
Of course it was by no means shorts and tank top weather here today at least not in the morning. So after the photos I had to switch the shorts for white skinny jeans and added a coco shrug for warmth.
Still kept the look I think though. No?
The contractors are back at my house and they are everywhere, backyard, front yard. And since I was going to change the shorts after the photos I took them upstairs in my hallway off all places!
At least utilized my bench...
Oh, for shoes the taupe/tan wedges were perfect to achieve the look. These if you remember came with a detachable fur trim but for spring/summer they look great without the trim.

Today's Activities: Back to preschool today after a week off. My son is a solid listener now and slowly my daughter is more and more sitting through circle time.
Oh, but we are still struggling with the paci withdrawal. She is waking up a lot and crying (falling back to sleep) but overall sleeping less which makes her cranky. She was our sleeper and good natured kid too, so hope she goes back to sleeping a lot. At least she understands they are gone and stopped asking for them. Just re-states everytime she goes to bed that the 'mingi's (her word for pacifiers) are gone. Well, actually she says 'Mingi yok!' (in Turkish). Both my kids are bi-langual and I only speak to them in Turkish although my son 95% of the time responds back in English. My daughter can carry both with no problem.
Anyway, still having car issues after 3 days and thousands of dollars of repair. I am so frustrated. Had to stop to see why the 'check engine' light was coming on and now they need to install a new sensor. They won't charge me for it but I still have to take it there and wait which is not an easy thing with two kids.
In the afternoon we'll be going to the indoor play area.
Once again the kids wanted to pose with me... First my daughter (in her new minnie top from Target)
They both of them. Notice my son's new long denim skull frayed shorts from Sears...
