Mustard and Cream

I loved the combination that came together this morning. Definitely making up for the de-motivation to take my outfit photos yesterday...

The inspiration was JCrew catalog. Between then and Anthropologie I get sooo many inspirations....
 This mustard and cream combination immediately caught my eye. I owned this short sleeve mustard sweater for years now. I remember wearing it to my trip to Turkey when my son was 7 mos old (he is almost 5 now).  So happy to be wearing it again... I feel sad for these looked over items in my closet sometimes. :)
 The inspiration felt a little bare though so I added the beret, the necklace and the gloves!

This poor overlooked purse was also purchased during a trip to Turkey I think even older than the previously mentioned trip.
 I totally own black patent leather heels like the ones in the inspiration photo and would have taken some photos with them on if I wasn't so lazy and running totally late this morning... So this is the realistic version which I wore majority of the day.... My old self would have gone with brown or cognac boots that would have blended. But I do like how stark these black boots look.

TODAY: My son had a nightmare last night so I ended up sleeping with him which was great actually but forgot how early he wakes up so was not happy when he woke me up at 6 AM with 'I am hungary mommy' Got him to go back to sleep for a while but then gave up and went back to my bed and sent him to Daddy who takes care of the kids every morning until I wake up which is such a blessing. That is the only way I can handle going to bed so late every night. Anyway, woke up totally late though and had just enough time to get ready and leave and got breakfast at a drive thru Starbucks before pre school. 
After naps I met my friend and her son at the gym. We checked in the kids at the gym daycare and did a zumba class together. This instructor was great. She barely spoke and transition from song to song in a fast and smooth manner and the songs were great. My friend kept saying it felt like we were on vacation dancing at a resort night club. My abs sure got an amazing workout and I love dancing. 
We then had dinner together at the foodcourt before coming home.

TOMORROW attempting my first designer event at H&M with my bf. I am in love with the Marni necklaces so hoping we score some. Going to meet up at 6:30 AM to line up! 
I am also excited to be doing something like this which I have never done. Will give us experience before we do a similar line up for the twilight panel at Comic Con this year!

Also TOMORROW is the Red Pump day! so wear your red pumps and support cause!
