Green Stripes



Today's very basic and casual outfit was inspired by a photo in the Lucky Magazine back in November 2010!


 I loved that banana necklace and actually went to that website and considered buying it but the price and given its craziness I decided against it. Made due with my orange slice necklace and yellow accessories...

 Notice the neon yellow nails? I put on the polish at my mom's last night...

I  thrifted this shirt for $5 when we were doing a martini and food tasting and some of the tastings were in retail shops. My friends of course were not surprised that I could manage to shop during the 5 minutes we were in line for martini's! I love its gold design over the stripes...
 Here is the orange slice necklace. I also bought a silver cherry that I haven't worn yet...
These were easier to photograph off my feet today. They are approx 2-3 years old.
I have been wearing hats a lot latey. 2 reasons. One is it is hot and sunny and they provide protection. But mainly cause I don't have time to fuss with my hair or face so a hat and sunglasses and you look chic with no effort! They should be every mommy's best accessories. 

Hat, shorts, belt - Forever 21
Tee - Thrifted
Necklace - Girl Props
Shoes - Dolce Vita

Today's Activities: My son is sick. He had a rough night and slept next to me (my hubby moved to the guest room). Woke up not coughing but definitely sick. We stayed home so I can have him rest. My mom came between work and swam in our pool with my daughter while I took my son out to a quick grocery shopping and picking up his medication from the pharmacy.
After naps we just hung around home and had the kids play in the backyard. Hoping he is totally fine tomorrow so we can do our activities.
