High Tea

Don't you just love this color combination: Aqua blue with yellow!?
I loved it when I saw the following page in the J Crew catalog early fall of 2011:
I had this super old blouse that I used to wear to work with black slacks. I have always loved this color and I already owned the yellow cardigan. SO I saved this photo until I found and purchased the aqua cords from F21 and now it can be created:

 So you can see this looks a bit weird. That is cause this animal print was the inside of this belt and it has a super cute brass bow buckle on the front side that is plain brown. I really wanted to do animal print though so wore it inside out...

This pose was weird all perched up...

Morning was pre-school. In the afternoon we went to the indoor play area where I had signed up my duaghter for a snowflake tea party...
Had bought this dress for her at clearence at Kohl's when she saw this model and cried for it back in xmas. It is size 5 and too big for her but for the Snowflake Tea Party it was perfect colors and style so I let her wear it...

The tea party was on top of this castle structure....

After tea they read a story...

 Learning to hold the cup with the pinky out!

Learning to stir without clinging...

And the boys (big brothers) playing...
