Roses are red violets are blue

Today's inspiration was from the same page I wore an outfit from on Tuesday!

I liked the idea of wearing a light colored summer dress with brown tones. This jacket was in a bag of clothes my sister brought over for me to look at before giving away. I picked a few items but didn't love them enough to add to my closet so they have been sitting in a bag behind my bedroom door. Still though I know what is in the bag so when I see an outfit they can be used I pull them out like this time.

 It was by coincidence that the lining of her jacket was this dusty rose which went so well with the flowers on the dress. The tights are also very dark brown.

 This was such a cute necklace I bought in Turkey but rarely can figure out a way to wear it.

Layered all the bracelets my good friends have bought or made for me! The burgandy stone set was made by my good friend. The colored rhinestone one was a gift from my best friend and the wooden beaded one was a gift from one of her exotic travels of my other best friend!

Jacket - My sister's
Dress - Yes Style
Shoes - Forever 21
Purse and necklace - from Turkey
Bracelets - all gifts from friends

Went to Costco (AGAIN) so I can buy stuff for a very crazy 3 days ahead of us...
Friday - We have potluck thanksgiving at PreSchool in the morning. Then Sea World member night in the afternoon/night.
Saturday - Gym classes in the morning. Afternoon/Night hosting a full on pre-Thanksgiving meal to the whole family (total 14 people!).
Sunday - Hosting a clothing party that I am thinking about selling in near future in the morning. Then in the afternoon going to the grinch tree lighting in the famous Balboa Park of our city.
So, going to be a super busy weekend!
After my costco shopping I stopped at my friend's house who just had surgery.
Then after naps another friend came over for a playdate then left for her 'girl's night out' while her hsuband came to pick up the kids and we gave all the kids a bath first before my husband came from his game of tennis.
