This was my outfit today! First I was going to wear an outfit with shorts. Then it was so chilly in the morning that I switched to this from the fall list. Of course midday it got super duper hot but I knew by afternoon it would cool again so did not change and stuck to it.
The inspiration came from the following photo in the April 2011 issue of People Style Watch:
I layed my neon tank and chartuse shrug on top of each other to get the look.
This is 100% cashmere shrug I found on a clearance rack in Charlotte Russe for $10. They had couple other colors but this was the most interesting one.
This scarf was a gift from my cousin while we were in Turkey. It has beautiful black and black rose stiching print and goergous fringe.
I love the layers and layers of bracelets in the photo so I created my own version with the ones I had collected last season. Kept them all on one arm and the new big leopard ring on the other.
These heels are very old. I found them on clearance for $15 at Marshalls one night years ago.

Today's Activities: The super busy day as I promised yesterday. Started with a great breakfast my son and hubby picked up from a local restaurant. It is their 'Saturday' tradition to go buy breakfast together and my son loves to go in his PJs with just a jacket and shoes. They usually get bagels and sometimes doughnuts and today was eggs, bacon and french toast.
I also attempted to apply a brazilian blowout treatment at home by myself this morning. Bought the solution a few weeks ago at the drug store. It is their brand and it is organic and supposed to last 30 shampoos. And guess what instead of $300 it costs $30! Since I had the first one at a salon I knew how it works. I did the blow drying in the main part of my room opened the huge sliding deck door open and turned on a floor fan at a high speed. Did not smell the chemical at all with all that ventilation. At the salon it was burning my eyes I remember. The instructions for this take home kis states though that it will remain in my hair for 48 hours! So I kind of feel yucky now but my hair looks somewhat good at least. I get to wash it off Monday morning!
So of course it took me longer that I calculated and I barely made it to my daughter's gym class where my aunt joined us so she can watch. Afterwards went to a 4 yr old b-day party.
At home prep'd for the BBQ. My parents came and my step dad brought his tools so we can hang the decorations I had been collecting in a bin for years now...
Check some of them out:
Most are from Turkey hence the evil eyes! We beleive these protect you from the 'evil eye' which is why i think they are called this in English.
Rest of the family arrived. My nephew who is almost 2 mos old was sleeping in my arms...
With my Brother (who is working all weekend long, hence the uniform) and my SIL...
At some point in the night we had 9 people on our family room couch. I don't think we have ever had this many people sit on this couch ever!
From left to right: My husband, son, sister, sister's b, Dad, Mom, daughter, my step dad holding my nephew...And this is not even all of them as my distant cousin, his girlfriend, my brother, SIL and my aunt were outside! This is just the family in this city!
