Weekend in Palm Springs

 Sorry for the absence during the weekend. We were away in Palm Springs for my Dad's 65th B-Day!
This was my outfit on Saturday. The weather unfortunately was awful, cold and raining and i had only packed warmish clothes so was not really cozy in this outfit but only wore it to dinner....

The Inspiration came from the lovely Carrie Fabulous Blog:
These color combinations were cool and I thought I could incorporate my harem pants...

 Sweater, Pants, Scarf - Forever 21
Heels - from Turkey
Bracelets - Victoria's Secret & Guess

It was my Dad's actual b-day. We drove up in the morning probably the only sunny time of the day and it started pouring right after we checked and dressed to go swimming! So ate lunch inside which was not easy with kids that had already been sitting in a car for 3 hours! Trying to get their energy out in the afternoon we took them to chuck'e'cheese then met up everyone for dinner at a much nicer place. After dinner we went to a bakery where my SIL had ordered a cake and sang my dad happy b-day.

My adorable Nephew enjoying his food!


This outfit was also inspired by Carrie Fabulous Blog!

She has so many great polyvore combinations that I often save them for outfit inspirations. This one with grey and white with pops of black and blue I thought were so cool.

Jean Jacket & White Jeans - Forever 21
Silver Tank - Charlotte Russe
Scarf - TJ Maxx
Flats - Tilly's

Met up for breakfast and afterwards walked around the grounds to enjoy a beautiful morning which is when we took these photos. My dad and husband played tennis. We then finally were able to go for a swim and my son had a blast with the pool slide. After lunch we took the tram up to play in the snow! So it was a true 'surf and ski' kind of a day. It was the first time my kids saw and touched snow!
