Stripes to go

On the road again but I got to wear this all day today not just on the trip back to San Antonio.

 I seem to prefer these boyfriend style jeans for the plane rides cause they are loose and comfy.

 Wore a skirt suit blazer but then decided to wear a cardigan in the plane for practicality.

Jacket - Tahari
Tee - From Turkey
Jeans - Newport News
Sandals - Boutique 9

My husband decided to skip tennis so we can spend the morning together before I take off again for my business trip. We called up my dad who was also skipping tennis and together went to the zoo. All weekend long I have been trying to get more hugs and kisses from the kids and I can tell they hug and kiss more as well. I felt like a visitor at home this weekend. I was only there for 2 nights and a day and a half so just tried to make most of my time by spending quality with the kids and family.
It was so hard to leave again. I wasn't as panicked about packing though cause I only unpacked the clothes and nothing else. I also made my list of outfits on the plane ride home and didn't bother trying them on so lets see how this week goes.
I was also more at ease this time around on the light. You see, consulting can be very different than a permanent job. At the beginning of a new gig you never know what you are going to get exactly, whether you will be able to truly help or not. There was also the anxiety of being a in a foreign city, a new company and meeting a whole set of new people. But this week I know exactly what I am going to and even though I dislike this hotel just knowing what to expect made me feel less anxious. I am determined to finish my book on this trip so I can stop carrying around the huge hardcover book. I even brought a back up book in case it finishes early. I love being able to read again. I even read when standing in line to board the plane, then on the runway then waiting to de-board, waiting for the luggage. All down time I take advantage by reading and removing myself to a whole other world then where I am. I love that ability books have on the readers.
I should go to bed so I can get as much res as I can for another crazy week I am sure.


  1. I think this outfit is so chic on you, stripes and a blazer is always one of my fave looks. I hope you have a great time in San Antonio, I was just there a few weeks ago.

    P.S. I love those flat sandals you're wearing, they are so unique and look really comfortable

  2. This outfit is so beautiful on you! One of my top faves so far!

  3. Loving those flats! Wearing a similar pair today and of course the stripes are always a fav with me!

  4. I love this look, especially the sandals. I agree with Dale, they look really comfy. :)

    I feel the same way about reading. I need to start reading daily again.

  5. Ayakkabilarin cok guzelmis Defne cim cok begendim. Cok rahat ve SIK bir kombin olmus.

  6. I love your sandals in this look!

  7. what a whirlwind of a week with one to go, huh?! i'm curious as to what kind of consulting you do? i bet the kids were so happy to see you! i found my love for reading again (thanks to the twilight series that someone let me borrow, lol!) sometimes i can get so into it, too, and can't put the book down! have a great week!



Love to hear your thoughts...
