Wheels in Motion

 This was my outfit yesterday. I wanted to wear something comfortable but still somewhat cool...
The inspiration was from the Victoria's Secret Catalog last fall/winter:
I like the idea of a longer cardigan, tall boots with cut off shorts...

Cardigan, socks - Forever 21
Shorts - TJ Maxx
Tee - Stylemint
Boots - Via Spiga
Purse - Thread Show

I conducted my first 'Wardrobe Consulting' yesterday morning for my friend. This was a great practice run for me to see how long does it really take to conduct such visit and how successful it would be. It was amazing. I have 10 years  of finance background where you use facts and logic and hardly any creativity. This was so different. I felt rejunivated working with her outfits and coming up with combinations trying on things and for the first time thinking only what she is comfortable with and what she likes and not my tastes or clothes.
I was happy to be able to create at least a few outfits which of her challange pieces where were 2 mini skirts and 2 midi skirts and 3 dresses. For majority of the outfits we focused on creating combinations she can wear with the kids on a daily basis. We also added small adjustments like heels to take the outfit from day to a date night. These all based on the questionnaire she had filled and described her needs.
In the afternoon hung out with the kids at the park then had taco night dinner at home then went accessory shopping with my sister for the new clothing line I will start selling.
My brain is going insane from all the moving piecs and everything I have to do to start both businesses.

Had a nice breakfast with the family then went to a park for scooter riding and enjoying the amazingly warm and sunny weather with my sister and her fiance's little puppy!
 Kids having fun with their Grandpa Neal!

Loving the little puppy 'Molly'...
 There was a potty accident incident, hence the leggings instead of her actual jeans!
