Dip in Blue

My only outdoor activity today was a trip to the Costco so picked a pretty basic outfit from my list. It was inspired by a photo at F21 website:

 Notice the shoes are the same!
 Today's outfit is head to toe F21. I like these non-fitted tops, so comfy. And you can get away with crop if the bottoms are high waist.

My son walked in to ask a question...

 These were not easy to put on by myself but I managed to. The beaded evil eye bracelets I collected in Turkey last summer.

Shorts, top, shoes - Forever 21
Bracelets - from Turkey

Today's Activities: Like I said our big morning activity was going to Costco and strocking up on milk and fruit. Also bought some fall clothes for the kids. 
After naps my dad, sister and her bf came over to swim in the pool and hang out. Kids had a great time playing with all of them. We then had bbq chicken dinner outside. After the kids went to bed we had a nice dip in the jacuzzi too. Managed to also do 4 loads of laundry during this time somehow.
