Today's inspiration came from this 'mash up' of photos Bee (from the famous Atlantic Pacific Blog) did back in September. She had this tiny photo:
The idea of pairing yellow and blue with a splash of neon. Hers is orange mine is pink.
I took the photos upstairs so used one of the sunglasses I have in my dresser drawer...
I wanted to layer all my thin and colorful bracelets like Bee did. The process takes forever though and I was having such a tough time so I asked my son to help but he got bored but my little daughter was more than happy to hold the ends so I can hook each one. Then at pre-school she used the toy ring links stacked up like bracelets and said 'look mommy like yours!"
Most of these are evil eye pieces collected over time from Turkey. They look cool together.
White wedges or sandals would have been better but I was too cold so opted for the wedges which I can wear with socks.
Did not notice the giant finger print on my lens apparently!
This pose was my son's idea. He likes to get creative like this! :)

Busy day today with preschool in the morning and t-ball after naps followed by dinner with friend's at Sammy's Pizzaria.
Had to rush home for baths. Tomorrow we are scheduled for our xmas card photo shoot. Our friend's photographer has a great deal and she was doing her family and could takes us afterwards so we said 'yes'. Except I was absolutely not prepared at all. I ran through all sorts of ideas of what the family can wear. My husband of course was no help with these discussions so luckily my friend and I bounced ideas during kids' t-ball class and I bought a new shirt for my son before dinner from a store by the restaurant.
When I got home I started laying out the clothes so I can see how they looked together. First I had a green button down for my husband but with both of us in green it blended. So I swapped his top with a brown button down and the results were great:
This dress is from my cousin's childhood. It was the start of my inspiration to go with a 'green' theme...
This is the new top I got my son since everything he has is more or less solid green and I wanted a pattern. This top was perfect with dots of brown where it picks up my husband's shirt and my necklace. And the blue dots go great with the blue jeans. I might have him wear a long sleeve green tee under this so when the photographer is doing just the kids he can be in that to not clash with my daughter's dress...
Do you guys like it?
I am currently doing my nails in a dark brown with a gold tip and also going to try to do my hair a bit differently too. Hope it all works out.
