Wore this outfit this afternoon cause I was too late getting ready this morning. Picked a dressy outfit since I am going to go out with my bf tonight...
Here is the Inspiration photo from People Style Watch Magazine's May 2011 issue:
I could have also tried this with my pink slacks but that would require cuffing the wide legs and also it is a dry clean so figured the jeans which are just machine wash were a better choice for tonight.
I added a lizard print belt to hold the pants up.
Simple accessories of a white and rose gold watch with two thin burnished gold bangles...
Just like the inspiration photo added a rhinestone charm necklace...
Black purse is an unexpected color for the pasted hued outfit. Mine has that beaded bird charm with oranges and peach color so goes really nicely...
These shoes are super duper duper old. I bought them for work probably 13 years ago but they were not very comfy so wore them very little. They were too pretty to give away.
The cognac color was a better add than a brown pair...

Today's Activities: I have been working on my annual albums last night and this morning. After a very stressful and sleepless couple weeks in December last year trying to finish all my albums and order before year end I promised myself this year I would work on them every month and not wait till year end. But realized even that is easier said than done. Just adding the select monthly photos to our annual family album takes quite a long time. So last night I got in a zone was trying to catch up and did not go to bed until 1 AM. Then this morning continued and was totally late for our outdoor class hence just threw on capri jeans and a tee.
It was the last class of the semester and we had a potluck. There is no big good-bye since we start summer session just next week but it was fun to have a potluck. The park that was beach front was quite chilly so good thing I had extra jackets in the car.
Both kids took good naps. My SIL and their visiting family friend was going to come by in the afternoon but they never made it. Good thing is my Dad came over and the kids played hard with him. We baked cookies as a treat.
Tonight have plans to do dinner and a movie with my friend. Tomorrow is a big day. I am creating a lot of excitement for my daughter to gear her up for it. It is POTTY TRAINING TIME! I do this 3 day boot camp style where you go cold turkey no diapers (well except for pull ups at night) and stay home for 3 days. It totally works but requires a lot of commitment and hell of a 3 days. Our chants are 'Happy Potty Time' and 'No More Diapers' and 'I am a Big Girl Now'. Hoping family members come to my aide by taking my son out of the house as unfortunately he is going to be stuck with us. Will keep you posted as to how it progresses. Probably won't be dressing much...
