Free Spirit

 This was my outfit on Wednesday... 

Inspiration from a very old issue:
 I am trying to wear all these old and simple inspiration outfits before they become ancient...

 Definitely not the best hair day. Hat would have been great...
I also had plans to accessorize with a necklace and/or earrings from my own sale collection but never had the time and forgot afterwards...
Vest, Pants, Belt - Forever 21
Tee - TJ Max (twilight brand!)
Boots - Newport News
Purse - Chloe
Watch - Michael Kors

This was a crazy day. Took my daughter to pre-school then directly went to pick up my son from Kindergarten as it is their half day on Wednesdays. Then came home for a literally 10 minute break to feed my daughter lunch and distracted my son from his hunger with a new toy then dropped off my daughter with my step-dad and took my son to his dentist appointment. He had fillings for 5 cavities! Which is just outrageous cause this is the healthiest kid who hardly eats anything sugary, drinks no juice or milk and we brush at least once if not twice a day plus floss. Now he is on fluoride treatment as well which takes close to 15 minutes just to do his teeth every night.
He was so out of it afterwards crying cause he didn't want to keep the gauze in his mouth etc... I babied him and played with his new marble track set then fed him the soft lentil meal my mom had made.
Gave both kids a bath and put them to bed early! I am exhausted these days with different school drop offs and pick-ups and hardly any down time...

 Today's outfit was Inspired by the January 2012 issue of Anthropologie catalog:
 The top is this really cool print shirt mixing pink stripes and green florals....
 I created the same effect with a neon pink striped tank top and green floral scarf on top. For cool times added a light green cardigan on top...

Here is my attempt at the hair/head swing! :)

 Decided to top the scarf with this big yellow daisy necklace from 'Send the Trend'...

Tank Top, Belt - Forever 21
Scarf - H&M
Necklace - Send the Trend
Watch - Asos
Boyfriend Jeans - Newport News
Wooden flatforms - Bloomingdale's

Today will be another crazy day... Dropped off my son at Kindergarten came back home for a bit to finish tidying the house then went to indoor play area for some play/work time and my daughter's Ballet Class. This will be followed by picking up my son, cooking dinner for the whole family, dropping off my son at Soccer practice and having the whole family for dinner at our house for their last night before they leave for Turkey.

Here are some photos from my Daughter's outdoor class on Tuesday:

Snack Day

 This outfit was oddly inspired by one of those one page Fashion sections of the Parenthood Magazine!
Showing star mom's with their kids. I can't even remember who the star was but I saved the photo:
I didn't try to dress my daughter like the inspiration but still took a photo of both of us:

Got this polish change on Saturday... Essie grey with black tips:

Tank - Charlotte Russe
Skirt - From Turkey
Belt - TJ Maxx
Purse - Michael Kors
Sandals - Victoria's Secret
Earrings & Bracelet - Cookie Lee

My daughter had snack day at her school so she was the teacher's helper. Even though this is her 3rd year in this class she had never been this excited cause there was no brother to steal the show. She enjoyed ringing the bell for circle time the most...

Make a Statement

Yesterday's outfit was inspired by this old magazine photo I had saved:

This photo reminded me of my very old strapless hot pink dress and the idea of wearing it with some chunky statement necklaces...

Layered 3 necklaces:

Black and white mini wedges were perfect...

Dress - BCBG
Cardigan - Newport News I think...
Wedges - Victoria's Secret
Blue and Coral necklaces - Thread Show (from different years)
Pink beaded necklace - from Turkey

I decided to extend my 
until September 15th so please

The kids started Turkish School Sunday morning. Re-uniting with their friends from last spring the kids had a great time. Then we came home for lunch and a swim with Daddy before heading to my mom's for a BBQ. Before that though I worked super hard at home doing 3 loads of laundry and cooking some small meals to eat for lunch and side dishes for dinners etc... With so many people at our house the food in the fridge disappears fast!
