Hi honey I'm home

 This was my outfit this morning going to my Dr's appointment. It was a bit heavy for the hot day but the office is always super cold so it worked. I shed some of these layers when I got home for the rest of the day...

The inspiration was from I think Tilly's Magazine:

I had to add a hat as I was not having a great hair day... ;)

Hat, Scarf - do not remember where I have acquired these... 
Tee, Boots, jeans - Forever 21
Belt, Purse - Q
Bracelet, Ring - Cookie Lee

Have been under the weather a little lately. We stayed home Friday to take it easy but then did some major grocery shopping to get ready for our upcoming 30 Day Detox!
My husband and I will be starting this on Monday. Following the program by Arbonne Cosmetics. The goal is to eliminate all the toxins and processed food from our diet and cleanse. No Alcohol, no caffeine, no dairy, no gluten and everything organic! I have to say it was quite an experience trying to find free range eggs/chicken and grass fed beef and wild fish. Organic veggies and fruit was not difficult but everything was definitely more expansive. There is no dairy but the shakes we'll make in the morning will involve milk. I bought every kind of milk we are allowed to see what we like better. So our fridge is now filled with coconut, rice and almond milk. Lets see... I am looking forward to it though. Lately I have been going a bit nuts on caffeine and it is going to be hardest thing for me to give up. The program does come with these all natural energy frizz drinks so lets see if they work.

Friday night my kids spent the night at my mom and stepdad's while my husband left for his tennis tournament. It was so odd being in the house all by myself but good odd. I was happy to have the kids back after I got back from the Dr's. We just all hung out at the house.

Sneaking to Sunset

 Today's outfit was inspired by this photo in April 2011 issue of People Style Watch:

I am drawn to these simple all white combo's with a slight touch of blue... These short combinations I have been wearing lately are all simple with a touch of interest but most of all very practical. :)

Jacket - Marshall's
Tee & Shorts - Target
Necklace, Oxfords - Forever 21

Started our morning early with a slew of errands from going to the bank to oil change to school then to carwash! My parents took the kids afterwards and I tried to catch up on some much needed sleep and rest.


The inspiration for this from this very old photo I had saved at least 3 years old!
 I have liked this bohemian style that I turned the Kika 'Addison' dress bohemian with a aztec print scarf and wooden beaded necklaces from Turkey... Green/blue silk sandals added to the color burst...

Dress - 'Addison' in poppy red by Kika Paprika
Scarf - Forever 21
Necklaces - From Turkey
Sandals - Seychelles from Anthropologie

My hubby came home early so we can have a mini dinner date while my parents had the kids. It was great to get out and have dinner watching the ocean then the sunset...

Ruffled Shorts

 This was my outfit on Saturday! I posted Sunday's outfit first since I wore the 'oxblood' to do the BDIB. So this is a late post but I have added today's outfit too to catch up!

The inspiration from J Crew catalog I think last year's!

Top, Shorts - Forever 21
Silk sandals - H&M
Necklace & Ring - Park Lane Jewelry


Inspiration from People Style Watch July 2012 Issue:

 The i phone and the ear set is not a prop. I was actually on a work call and had to snap the photos before making to my daughter's outdoor class!

Layered a taupe tank under a white one....

Utility Jacket - Gap
Tanks & Belt - Forever 21
Shorts - TJ Maxx
Sneaker wedges - Roxy
Hat - Target

Took my son to school then stopped by home before heading to the outdoor class which by luck was right by our house.
I was totally determined today to get back into my business and made my new resolution of 5 phone calls and sent a few emails. My mom came over to hang out and pick up my son solo and took him out for ice cream (frozen yogurt really). He was so cute telling me all about his day voluntarily. Picking him up without my daugther makes such a difference. He really likes this one on one time.
