I have no reason to run

 Today's outfit I wore to a work party at night...

The inspiration to combine the 'azure blue' bottom with the bright 'citrus' top came from my company's (Kika Paprika) own blog photo:

To add a bit of print I added my brown/blue/white scarf which matched it almost too perfectly!

I finally broke down and bought this coat my size even though I had one size bigger on my rack already. I definitely plan to keep it. Love the color and style...

Isn't this back detail super cute?

When I took off the jacket/scarf this was the look:

Morning was a playdate at the Aquarium... We hadn't been there for a year or so hence the kids were very interested. We also realized now they were all tall enough to see the tanks without us having to lift them. Time flies.
Afterwards I came home to shower and change and load up the car with work stuff. Took the kids to my friend's house who did me a huge favor by babysitting them in the middle of her crazy day so I could go to my work party while my husband played match 2 in this weekend's tennis tournament.
My party went great and he won his match! :)

Just Peachy

 Today's outfit was very quickly put together and I was not having a great hair day!

The inspiration was from the JCrew catalog:
 Thought it was an interesting idea to combine a bit different peach top and bottom and shoes under a purple/navy cardigan. I couldn't resist adding one more color though and went with the aqua necklace.

Jeans - Thrifted

Took the kids to the Madagascar 3 movie, then ran some errands and went Father's Day shopping followed by lunch at pick-up-stix. The shopping trip was insane of course with literally 3 visits to the restroom within a 45 minute period one of them due to my daughter spraying some kid perfume to her eye! Consoled her with a pack of lip gloss which she spent the whole afternoon rubbing all over her face, hair and body. Bath was much needed tonight after that...
Never a dull moment with my little ones.

The Merry go round

 So this is day 3 in a row of wearing converses. It is a necessity when we had Legoland on Monday, Outdoor class on tuesday and Del Mar Fair today! 

 This 3/4 sleeve jacket with old fashioned shoulder pads was a Romwe purchase last birthday I think from my husband and sister... Love the color and style...

The trapeze tank I wore inside had this pretty crochet staps and back...

 Feather earrings for fun!

Well summer camp by mommies has officially started this week. Today 4 mommies and our kids trekked to our annual Del Mar Fair grounds. Instead of parking in their lot we parked nearby and took the free shuttle busses. The kids I think had more fun in the double decker bus ride than the fair itself. The fact that they were not strapped also added to the thrill.
We visited the farm animals and a whole slew of fried foods then did a few rides. Exhausting but a lot of fun...
