I will go sailing no more

Today's outfit was inspired by a photo in Anthropologie Magazine:

I liked this white with white combo and the shearling coat add on...

Lace top, Shearling Vest, Jeans - Forever 21
Boots - Steve Madden

I actually did wear a blog outfit yesterday but it wasn't all that special and I was way too busy for photo shoot plus posting. We had a nice outdoor class at the park then had friends over for a playdate.
Today was preschool followed by a work party that was fun but lasted quite long.
One more day to Vegas and I am torn about my outfit choices. :)

Confidence is Beautiful

Today's simple combination was inspired by the Levis Ad in the September 2011 issue of Lucky Magazine:
 Of course really what makes the outfit is my cool Lita's which I was not able to wear with the kids. I would never dare wear such heels with the kids when I am alone so I wore red flats instead.

Coat, Jeans - Forever 21
Scarf - Thrifted
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell's
Sunglasses - House of Harlow

It was a big day where we went as a big group of family to watch my kids perform for the Turkish Children's Holiday festival. The performance was at an auditorium in UCSD (my old college). The kids were amazing. They had zero stage fright or shyness. My son was first in his class to say his verse of the color song and he did it perfectly from memory. I was crying of course. Funny how these things make you so proud when you are a mommy.
Unfortunately they divided our tiny tots class performance between the entire performance so we had to stay for the whole thing which was tough for my 3 year old. She though did amazing during her SOLO performance. I had zero expectation of her actually going through with it but she held that microphone and was alone on the big stage and sang the whole song and loved the attention and the applaud. I have never been so proud and I am sure this is just the start of those moments that are yet to come.
I am sure it was tough on my in-laws who had to sit through the whole thing without understanding a word of it.
We came home dead tired and had a nice quiet dinner at home...

Some samples of Turkish folk outfits was hanging on the wall as decoration:

The tiny tots age group is on stage. My daughter in a tutu and son in green...

My son when singing his verse (hate that microphone blocked his face):

My daughter pairing up with her friend and chasing balloons instead of watching the performance!

The handsome boys! I look at this picture and just see how much and how fast he has grown...

And here she is singing her solo of 'mini mini bir kus' (Turkish readers will get the song name):
