I wan'na be like you

 My outfit on Wednesday for my mom's Birthday! 

The inspiration was from the lovely Bee of Atlantic Pacific:

 I havent' worn this blue work shirt for such a long time. Loved pairing pastels together like this. At night I swapped the flats with the nude heels. I was too lazy and out of time to do a photo shoot with the heels in the morning...

The accessories was a tough calls. I liked both the turquoise cuff with the turquoise ring and the betsey cuff watch with a charm bracelet. Just not sure if I should have worn them all. At the end I did. both bracelets were gifts from my mom... And the ring is hand made by my Aunt.

Button-down - Victoria's Secret
Pants - Ruche
Scarf - Forever 21
Accessories - Forever 21, betsey Johnson, Victoria's secret etc...
Shoes - can't remember the brand name...

We ditched pre-school today as I had schedule a professional photo shoot with the kids with my mom and Step-Dad for mom's birthday. Mom wore a brightly colored Ralph Lauren dress gift from my step-dad and my step dad wore a midnight blue linen shirt. The kids were dressed white tops and jeans and it was a great combo. They did great for the group photos then my daughter was done. But my son got some great 5 year old shots.
Then we paid a visit to the Disney store of course followed by lunch followed by a visit to the lego store. My daughter miraculously napped today. Late afternoon my hubby had a date with our little girl while I took my son to the family b-day dinner for my Mom. It was at a Korean BBQ place and we knew not only would my daughter not sit through a 2 hour meal with a hot grill on the table but not would she eat any of that food. My son of course was in heaven. Afterwards we came to our house for cakes and gifts...

 Today's fun and casual outfit as we trekked to Sea World with the Pre School class on a field trip...

Here is the inspiration photo which obviously is so much cooler but mine was converted to practical mommy mode! :)

Jacket - 'Kathy' in poppy by Kika Paprika
Tank Top - TJ Maxx
Shorts - Express
Socks - Forever 21
Sneakers - Converses

Had a fun field trip to Sea World although I would have so loved to stay home and rest and catch-up I didn't want to deprive the kids. It is always fun hanging out with friends and lots of walking.
After we only stopped at home to unload our lunch dishes and load up swimming gear and went to their first swim classes. They didn't have a spot for both kids in the time slot so they have back to back classes.
Of course my daughter asked to go potty 3 times during my son's session so it wasn't exactly sitting.
Then we had to go to a friend's house to deliver them dinner as they just had a baby (their 3rd). I had to ice the food in a cooler so it will stay fresh while we were in class.
We got home utterly exhausted and starving. Leftovers for dinner and kids went down early...

Stairway to Heaven

 This was my outfit Friday night to a work party at my best friend's house...
The floral jacket is a late release from my line and I ordered it close to my size so I can wear it. I am loving this neon coral... Topped it over a cream tank that is reversible and I am wearing the 'high neck' part to the front...

Cardigan - 'Lindsey' in coral from Kika Paprika
Tank - 'Reversible Tank' in shell from Kika Paprika
Jeans - Rock Republic from Victoria's Seret
Platforms - Bloomingdale's (can't remember the brand right now...)

Have been crazy busy with work parties and housework and trying to catch up on sleep...
