Seeing Red Stripes

 Today's inspiration comes from once again the lovely Bee from Atlantic Pacific!
 I immediately remembered by red striped top when I saw this. And paired it with similar khaki shorts. My hat is more tan color vs her cream one but I think it works still. I don't know have those types of shoes but my oxfords achieved the same effect.


 The cognac brown belt anchors the outfit...
My arm party is a bit different than hers. One hand I wore my white MK watch and the other I stacked up all the mini beaded evil eye bracelets I have and they looked great. The issue is clasping each one takes forever!
 The solaris purse I bought from Thread Show last year. It has a light inside that comes on in the dark!
 Wore a side bow ankle socks that blended with the shoes!


Cropped some of the face shots from the poses. I do like close-ups with sunglasses and hat!



Top & Hat & Oxfords - Forever 21
Shorts - J Crew
Belt - Limited
Bracelets & socks - from Turkey
Watch - Michael Kors


Today's Activities: My son is suffering big time from his shots. Most likely from the flu mist the most. He woke up burning up in the middle of the night and again in the morning. We did get his haircut but skipped his dance class. My in-laws and husband took my daughter to her dance class then we all met for lunch. Both kids napped nicely and everyone had separate plans for the afternoon. My husband when to watch women's tennis tournament with my Dad and other relative. My parents picked up my daugther to take her to Seaport Village. I met up with my sister to see the movie 'Horrible Bosses'. It was hilarious! And lastly my in-laws had plans to take my son to Sea World for the night shows. Unfortunatley though he woke up burning up again and apparently insisted he stays in his PJs and not go anywhere. So that was the scenario when I got home with the hopes of settling on the couch with my laptop in an empty house. Oh well. Had a pizza dinner and put the kids down early.
