Early Morning Charm

Today's outfit was inspired by another JCrew photo:

I like this outfit cause it is super simple except you add the long pearl necklace and then it is just something unique!
 This was at 6:30 AM believe it or not! I wish we were all lining up to get tickets to see some hip concert but no we got up early and got in line to get into a pre-school class. Which is why I picked an outfit that was warm in the morning but could be lighter when the heat hit later in the day. I have a tank top underneath.
 I could have worn my black capri pants but they are a dry clean material and I opted to just cuff my skinny cargo pants instead which I can just wash in the machine.

 I hooked up two of my pearl necklaces to create the longer knotted look.

 Cat eye sunglasses from F21.

Sweater - Forever 21
Pants - Target
Tank - From Turkey
Ballet Flats - Steve Madden
Pearls - Gifts from husband

So, yes I got up super early and lined up in front of the campus building before they even opened the building. By 7:20 there were 5 other mommies and by 7:35 (after the doors opened) there were already 15 of us. The class is only for 25-27 students (which are the adults but then each one has at least 2 kids so the number of people is quite high).
Anyway at the end most of my friends made it to the main list. There are 17 people on the waiting list though even after the teacher allowed 30 people to sign up.
My husband took the kids to my mom's and she brought them to class at the actual class start time. It was a crazy day though with way too many people and kids and no order. We survived.
After naps I had the kids swim again in the pool cause the heat wave is continuing and it is a perfect way for them exert energy without over heating. My son is swimming better and longer distances everyday. It really is a great exercise.
