High Waist is not my best friend

Posting super late tonight. So will be very brief and short. Watched a movie with subtitles which required 100% attention so this is what happens when you can't multi task!

The inspiration for today's outfit came from the March issue of In Style Magazine:

This is the first time I am wearing the high waist pants I got months ago at H&M. As I have repeatedly stated I do not like HW pants on me. But I wanted to show off the coral belt so tucked in the top. I feel it is not the most flattering cut on my not so thin waist.

This top is very old but super versatile and has pretty details.

My one and only full priced purchased Kate Spade item

The white fedora from Target:

Wore a sweater over the top during the morning hours:

 White Top - La Redoute Catalog
Navy Pants - H&M
Sweater - Forever 21
Hat - Target
Clutch - Kate Spade
Flats - Dolce Vita
Belt - Forever 21
Gold bracelet watch - Ed Hardy

Today's Activities: Took the kids to Preschool. Trying to finish the final art projects as the semester is coming to an end. After naps tried to get stuff done around the house. My Dad who is feeling great today came over for dinner and to play with the kids. We celebrated my son's actual b-day today. 

Re-using his b-day party candle on a leftover cake tonight with Dede (grandpa in Turkish):

My dad took this photo which is what our household looks like as we rush through our bedtime routine:

Between my dad and I we managed to capture many faces of my Daughter just within couple hours:

  7. I like your outfit and how you use the orange belt to break up the navy and white. I've had pants like that on my shopping list for a while. Hopefull I can find the perfect pair soon.

  8. I like the pants on you, really do, many time is just the way we 'feel' things on us when we are not used to something. those flats are the most beautiful flats and the clutch ...ooohh I can't tell you how much I adore Kate Spade designs.

  9. I think you look great! :)

  10. Great outfit and İ love those shoes! family pictures look adorable and Juliet's face expressions are very cute and nicely captured.
