Where the Wild Things Are

Although I am not crazy about my slouching pose here I do like the way my outfit came out yesterday (Friday). It was one of those warm spring days but I wasn't quite ready to bare it all so this was perfect with knee high socks and a summer dress topped with a cardi...

The preppy striped cardigan over floral is my version of mixing patterns. These high platform booties are from F21 and they are clunky but actually not bad in the comfor dept. I truly wore them all day today.

To pick that subtle pink in the floral dress's print I wore my pink charm bracelet.
This bangle set is from shop ruche and I love the colors and combination.

Cropped these from full body shots that weren't all that great...

Summer Dress - Super super super old. The tag reads 'eye candy'
Cardigan & Booties - Forever 21
Socks - TJ Maxx
Necklae - Betsey Johnson

FRIDAY's ACTIVITIES: Went to the indoor play place with the kids in the morning. Tried to rest when they napped but I think these antibiotics I am taking are wiring me up cause since coming home from the hospital I am having a real tough time sleeping even though I am dead tired. After naps we drove north to a friend's house for a playdate. I first dropped off my kids though at her house and went to Target to pick up couple things for my brother and SIL. We then had the kids hang out and had dinner there after our husbands joined us. It is so nice to have friends with kids the same age. It also helps our parenting styles are the same. Makes getting together that much easier. We had a great time and so did the kids. Before leaving, we cleaned them up as much as we can and put them in PJs so they would just go to bed when we got home. My husband took them home and I drove over to my brother and SIL's house to help out with the little nephew. It takes a lot of planning and coordinationg but this is the only way I can manage it all and still help. Tomorrow is our 6 yr anniversary and my mom and stepdad are taking the kids for the day and night as a gift.

My son insisted I take his picture with his new 'where the wild things are' bag from the $1 bins at Target. He also selected a 'max' purse and bowl to go with it. He gets drawn to books like this and has favorites for a long time.

  8. This might be one of my favorite outfits on you. I love the pattern mixing, the simplicity of the dress and cardigan, the fun of the knee-high socks and jewelry. You look great!

    I wish I had some friends nearby with kids the same age as my daughter. That must be really great!
