Sneakers and Leather

Today's outfit was inspired by this super cool Chictopia Post:
 I just loved the idea of wearing leather pants with sneakers. And sneaker outfit was what I needed today since I anticipated walking and long periods of standing at the Parade we went to... Plus it was super chilly in the morning and the trench coat was perfect...

The weather warmed up approx 15-20 degrees it seemed so the trench came off!

 I got this essential hot pink v-neck from F21... It is a good layering piece when I want to incorporate this color...

 I wore the other Alex & Chloe for F21 necklace I had bought backwards so the rhinestones do not show as they were too much sparkle for the outfit with sneakers. These black rhinestone hoop earrings are also new. Although they were quite heavy and took them off half day to give my ears a break.

If I had photoshop I would have loved to blurred the background crowd so I stood out. That would have made a cool photo...

Woke up early and prepared snacks and lunch and the kids and met my dad to drive together to our big annual balloon parade by the harbor downtown San Diego... We go every year. Usually we meet up with my friend so the kids can play but her kids were sick so we were solo.
Got lucky with parking and finding a spot to stand so it worked out.
This evening I plan to meet the girls to see the movie 'War Horse'. We were going to see 'young adult' but heard it had mediocre reviews so changed our mind...

In her new red cowboy boots from my mom!!!
