Farmer's Market

Wore this fun and colorful outfit to Sea World today. The inspiration came from the following photo in the Lucky magazine's April 2011 issue: 

I liked the pairing of the boucle blazer and the jeans and the beaded necklace... 

I added the hat cause I thought it just went with these unusual mix of prints and styles and colors... 

Love my stepdad taking thephotos. I wish he could do it everyday. He directs and leads and gives feedback! 

 I rarely get to wear these long red bead but today it kind of worked...

These sneaker wedges were totally comfortable at Sea World today... 

Again my stepdad's idea to pose in front of these flowers... 

Boucle Blazer - part of an Ann Taylor suit
Green striped tee - thrifted
thin jeans - from Turkey LC Waikiki (I always forget the spelling!)
Sneaker wedges - Roxy
Belt, hat, necklace - Forever 21

Today's Activities: Sea World this morning with both kids. My stepdad met us in the parking lot so we can go in together. My mom and aunt met us a little while later. The shamu viewing is open again and it was great watching them so active up and close. After dolphin show, playing at bay of play and some more animal exhibits we came back home for naps. Decided it ride out the afternoon at home. Heated our hot tub for the first time and let our son take the first plunge into the newly re-surfaced pool first! Kids loved swimming with Daddy. We then did art all together and puzzles. It was nice hanging out just the 4 of us.

    I love the mix of patterns and how the blazer brings all the 'chic' to the casual look.
