Leprechaun Trap

 Fell behind once again... But working like crazy and there is just so little time between work and the kids. This was my outfit Friday day. 

The inspiration was from this Anthropologie catalog:
 The cream chiffon skirt paired with a chartuse sweater and super large necklaces. 

Except I don't have a sweater I had this crop chartuse cashmere shrug. So I wore it backwards over a sage green top to create the effect:

And of course the Marni necklaces were the perfect adaptation of very large necklaces...

Cashmere Shrug - Charlotte Russe
Sage Green Top - J Crew
Skirt - American Apparel from Romwe
Boots - Madden Girl
Necklaces - Marni by H&M

It was St. Patrick's Day celebration at the Pre School today. The kids all wore green (above was my green).
We put out a leprechaun trap out in the back field behind the school then went to see an hour later to find some treasures he had left.
The kids all thought this was so much fun.

By the way did I mention my little 4.5 year old son has his first crush on his classmate!?
They are the cutest couple and total talk of the class. They hold hands during all the circle times and sit next to each other during snack and always playing together. Just too cute for words...

Here are some photos of the famous couple and the kids on their leprechaun hunt:

Kids were asked 'who is wearing green?'

Sharing their Mickey and Minnie toys:

Spinning the wheel

 Slowly but surely trying to catch up. So today is Friday and this is what I wore Wednesday day.
It wasn't really an outfit from my list but I wanted to wear the new marni tee....which is so cute and colorful.

Then at night switched into an all

I choose pieces that go really well with the colors and styles on my rack and they are selling nicely...

And here I am with my 'sample rack':

Snap out of it

 I think this was my outfit on Tuesday! I am so behind and the days are just running into each other.
Some days I manage to take the photos but most of the time I rarely have time anymore to edit and upload.

The inspiration for this was from the Victoria's Secret Catalog:

This top reminded me of my ruffle front tribal print top and the leather jacket combo was perfect.
Plus added the new marni necklaces for some fun pops of neon colors...

Leather Jacket - Costco (weird I know and I can't remember the brand and too lazy to get up to look)
Tribal top, jeans - Forever 21
Necklace set - Marni for H&M
Boots - Newport News
Sunglasses - Karen Walker

Monday was pre school followed by grocery shopping and preparing for the crazy busy week.
Tuesday I managed to take two work calls while taking the kids to the outdoor class at a park. Then went to target for last minute shopping and came home to prepare the house for the open house I was hosting starting at 6 PM. I asked almost all family members to come to help. My mom came first, then my dad, then my sister and her fiancé. They took on kid and dinner duty while my mom helped me with the guests and hosting the show. Thanks to all their help things went very smoothly. And it was a fun night dressing up my pre school mommy friends.

Cream of the crop

Trying desperately to catch up... This was my outfit Saturday Night, couples date night to fondue dinner followed by comedy club followed up drinks at a bar!
This time I decided to go a bit more casual then our previous date night outings. Plus I have been dying to wear this inspiration as it seemed so cute with the cream boots and jacket...

The inspiration was from Glamour back in September of 2011: 

Of course her designer booties are absolutely adorable and mine are 2nd best but still cute I think...

Jacket, top, necklace - Forever 21
Skirt - part of an Ann Taylor suit
Boots - Newport News

Navy and White

 I am so ridiculously behind in everything it is not even funny anymore... 
This is what I wore during the day on Saturday! 

The inspiration was from October 2011 issue of People Style Watch from a photo of SJP:
 I just loved this all white with navy ensemble. 

White Denim, Navy Blazer - Forever 21
Sequin Tank - Charlotte Russe
Scarf - Forever 21
Ballet Flats - Tilly's

Spent the morning with the kids taking them to gym class then out to lunch. When they want down for a nap I went to the apple store for my 2nd one on one this time on 'iphoto'. I was able to stump those guys with my millions of questions. At the end there was no better solution provided just some work arounds which now I am really second guessing my transition to Mac from a PC. And of course I forgot to take the mouse that had stopped working so I am stuck with the touch pad which is constantly acting up.
So not enjoying the electronic challenges in our lives coupled with our ever fighting issues with Cable companies.
