Inspiration Monday - Drew's Safari Style

Yeay, back to participating in the Inspiration Monday Challange hosted by Two Birds.
Here is the Inspiration Photo (Drew Barrymore) for this Monday: 

Tried to duplicate her pose from memory so obviously got the wrong side... 

Once again I had similar items to everything in the photo. My striped top is actually dark green which matches perfectly to the green top. This top is from my 'safari' collection. The sleeves can zip off and it becomes a vest or a sleveless top depending on how you want to wear it. I plan to use it more this season! 

I decided to go with my tan suede wedges... 

Wearing a tank under the top cause it was too crop and the jeans are too low so needed something to keep from exposing my belly as I move up and down running after the kids...
So, didn't have a black hat in her style but this camel brown does the job I think. Of course I took it off at preschool for the class photo then forgot it in the classroom. Not good at all! 

Skinny Jeans - Forever 21
Green tank - Target
Green striped top - Forever 21
Green shirt worn as a jacket - Eddie Bauer
Wedges - Victoria's Secret
Hat - Asos

Today's Activities: Went to preschool in the morning. It was picture day so we had a class photo taken. Can't wait to see it. We are also trying the finish the 'alphabet book' the kids have been working on all year. Every week since the start of school they have been working a different letter. They make a photo of an object starting with that letter using either a hand or a foot print. It is really cute. Of course we missed a few days here and there and now these last two weeks is our chance to make-up those pictures. I love doing the foot prints cause the kids giggle the whole time you are brushing paint on their foot. Will do photos once it is done!
After naps my mom and Aunt came over for tea then the whole family will join for take out dinner.
