Blue and Blue and Fall Trends

YEAY, I am back! It feels good to be wearing clothes other than sweats. I go nuts when I stay home and not wear real outfits. Today I picked an outfit inspired by this photo I had saved a while back. It is titled 'Pantone Regatta' which I assume is a brand, but I have never heard of it. I also did not note whose blog post featured this so if you recognize it please let me know so I can give you credit.

 I like the combination of blue toned animal print top with blue leather pants. Of course I don't have blue leather pants but my blue cotton pants helps me create a similar look. By the way these are the pants that I thought I lost. I found them deep in my son's closet when I was organizing both the kids' closets during our potty prison days!

I have no idea where this top came from. It was in my closet. I assume it is from my mom or sister but I can't remember. This is the first time I am wearing it.
 I could have gone black but thought adding another blue tone would be cool so here are the navy patent peep toes... For the day time I simply substituted navy flats. But will be putting these back on tonight for my house party.

 I applied the Brazilian blow out at home treatment last time. Instead of $300 in a salon you can do it for $30 at home and it comes with a month supply of shampoo and conditioner. But it only lasts a month not 3 months but who cares. The thing is you have to leave the treatment in for 48 hours. So my hair feels a bit oily and sticky but at least it is super straight!
 Covering the cold sore with a dab of lipstick today.

Top - no idea
Pants - Ann Taylor
Shoes - Steven by Steve Madden

Went to our first session of the reading clinic today. This is a free clinic we are participating in where I teach my son how to read based on a phoenics system from a book. Every week we'll be going to the clinic so the teachers can see how he is progressing and help me with my questions/problems. Plus my son gets a dollar toy which is a huge incentive. He did pretty good with the teacher. It was also our first day out with my daughter since the 3 day potty bootcamp at home. She didn't have any accidents but I had this portable potty evyerwhere and was paranoid.

Since we got done at 11 and I had already packed lunch and my friend had other plans I decided to take the kids  somewhere fun for couple hours before naps. Decided to go to the little area next to the zoo where they have a merry go around and a cute train. And coincidentally we ran into another mommy from our playgroup and hung out with them and had a picnic lunch etc...

Tonight I am hosting a Mary Kay party at home after the kids go to bed. I planned some fun apps and cocktails which I will photograph and post later tomorrow.

NOW to the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday topic
hosted by Katy at Modly Chic:
Fall 2011 Trends!
I had different items on my list but thought I would go with the least mentioned ones to make it interesting...
I also have been cutting out magazine pages that portray some fall trends so I just simply photographed those in the absence of time...
1. Spiked Heels:
I would love to own a pair like these in emerald green which is my next trend...

2. Emerald Green:
I so want a green coat!

3. High Heeled Loafers:
This was a trend when I was graduating college. I remember cause I owned a pair of brown and black ones. But the heels were thick. I am lusting over a kind with thin heels but a hiking boot like sole in a patent leather!
4. Purses with Scarves:
This also was a trend a while back and I love it. Great way to use all my old and beautiful silk scarves again. Not very practical for the daytime though where I place my bags on the playground floors on stuffing them under a stroller basket. But for adult outings it would be perfect.

5.  Jewel Tone Colors:
Sorry this looks like child art (had my son help). But these are some of my favorite jewel tones to try out this fall: Emerald Green, Electric Blue, Bright Orange and Magenta (coral was more of a spring color).
