Color Splash

 Since I am behind going to be doing a two outfit post tonight... This was my casual (and bright) outfit for a house and beach playdate on Monday....

The inspiration came from a recent post in the Northern Style blog which I love as Kira always has the best accessories:

These were $4.99 on clearance at J Crew! I liked the neon yellow... What is sad is this same style was popular when I was a teenager so it brings back memories...

Tee, necklace - Forever 21
Shorts - TJ Maxx
Espadrilles - J Crew

We had a playdate at my friend's house who lives right by the beach so as our usual routine we walked to the beach then came back to her house for lunch. Some of our kids are water bugs loving chasing the waves and getting wet. And some just as happy playing on dry sand. It is fun watching them trying to convince the other to do what they want to do.

And here is my outfit TUESDAY (today):
  The inspiration was from a little photo on a page in June 2011 issue of Glamour Magazine:
I know my inspirations are old sometimes but I keep them more because gives me an idea to wear my existing pieces in a new combination. All about the remix!

Just a classic black and white combined with red...

 Lots of cuffs looked cool but in all honesty I had to take them off before the swim class as they are too much when I am trying to shower the kids and trying not to get drenched myself at the swim school.

And here is how I really wore it with my flat ankle cuff sandals which are more practical:

Tee, pants, bracelets - Forever 21
Heels - Aldo
Flats - Boutique 9

Started the morning slow as I was holding a semi-formal open house selling my rack items at half price before our new season starts. We also had a mini pool play date and lunch. Then took the kids to their swim class followed by diaper bag shopping for my cousin by hitting a boutique store, couple departments stores and Nordstrom's rack...
