Red, White and BLACK

 I was thrilled with how this outfit came together and looked. Wore this to the kikaPaprika party at my mom's Friday night.

The inspiration was from this photo:
I love the idea of 'redwhite and black' instead 'blue' And the kika pieces I had were perfect to re-create. I actually like the ease and fit of my vest better. 

I must have tried 3-4 different scarves and settled on this that had touches of blue and red and black...

So you guys know I am a huge fan of F21 and shop from there all the time. I have bought a vest in this style and when I put it on it looks weird in the back and makes me look bigger than I need to. The fact that this vest has this gathered waist band in the back and that it is shorter cuts that extra material and gives a slimming look...

How do you like my new mac cover?

I had already owned white boot cuts pants but they are linen and require dry clean or laundry and ironing. Plus look awfully wrinkled within hour of wearing them. These white boot cuts are soft spandex French Terry and keep their shape and feel like heaven and are machine washable.

Had a nice morning meeting friends at the playground/park so kids can play and ride scooters and we even wore gym shoes and did a mini work out. Kids looked at us like we had gone mad when we started doing lunges and squats.
Came home to meet the cable guy as we have been without cable for 2.5 days and missed all our shows.
The guy took forever and of course it was the wrong order written and it was a mess. We have cable now but the boxes will have to be changed so we have to re-schedule all the shows again! AND we have no house phone! normally that is not an issue with cell phone but we do not get reception in our house so it is going to be a pain.
Once the kids got up I had the car loaded with my Kika stuff and their stuff and we went to my mom's.
My step dad took the kids to their pre school PJ movie family night where my husband met them.
And I hosted a kika party at my mom's.
People flaked of course and from the 9 people that were supposed to come only 3 showed up! and 2 of them refused to even try on anything. We wasted a good hour waiting too so they were tired as well.
Oh well. It was still fun and the 3rd lady loved the clothes and wants to host a party during summer break.


  1. Super cute--love the red, white & black. kika clothing offers amazing style, comfort & ease. You look FAB!

  2. I love this Kika look you have created. The tone of red Kika has a cool one although it looks hot! so it can go with many colors. Can't wait till my pieces come and it will be just in time for spring! party was challenging but I got messages today and a lot of th epeople were sick. ıt is going around town:(

  3. Great outfit, love the white pants, chic and comfy!

  4. This outfit works so well, in a timeless way. The colors and choices (e.g., belt) all create a beautiful appearance. Without looking like "fashion", this simply looks beautiful. You are amazing!
