It's ON

 Today's outfit to an afternoon park birthday party with the kids after school...

The inspiration:

Dress - Forever 21
Purse - Juicy Couture
Boots - Steve Madden
Sunglasses - House of Harlow

Morning was spent in the indoor play area where I power worked going through my emails and following up on work leads. Then stopped by the house to quickly eat lunch, change and pack up then went to pick up my son and drove to the birthday party. He actually had soccer practice but really wanted to come to the party to see all his old friends so we let him skip the practice.
He had an awesome time and played his heart out and had 2 pieces of cake!
Then by the time w got home though he totally crashed. It is funny how they reach their limit and it is total melt down.
My dad was waiting for us to help out so we calmed everyone down and got them to bed.

 Look at this amazing cake my super talented friend made....

And the adult cake:

Pumpkin Patch Kids

 I have been down with the cold the last two days hence lounging in the house with yoga pants. Today finally got my strength to continue our activities.  The heat is back here with a vengence so no fall clothes for us yet. To make it worse we had a field trip to a huge pumpkin patch/dairy farm that is east so over 100 degree weather. Imagine a dairy/cow farm in 100 degree weather. Not a nice smell for sure!

The inspiration was from Victoria's Secret Catalog. Just simple get up of browns and blue:

Cardigan - Forever 21
T-shirt & Shorts - TJ Maxx
Necklaces - From Turkey and vintage
Boots - Steve Madden

Field trip to Oma's Pumpkin Patch with my daughter's class:

And yes wore this long sleeve top cause it was new in 100 degree weather but at least it protected her from the sun. :)

Who is Wearing Kika? - Preema

As you might have read this is a new feature on my blog where every Monday I post a different model styled in the wonderful comfortable and stylish clothing line I sell: Kika Paprika!

Meet Preema!
Originally from India, Preema exudes class in everything she wears and does. Mother of a 5 year old son who was previously in health education, this smart lady speaks 4 languages and understands 2 others!  
Preema is one of those ladies that is always landing a helping hand. She can always be found holding someone's baby to give them a break or babysitting friend's kids when they are sick or in need. She always has a smile on her beautiful face and expresses even her struggles of motherhood with such positive optimism. 

Preema loves the Kika clothes as they are 'totally out of box for me'!

This combination of blue and navy jewel tones worked great with Preema's taste and style.

 We loved how this winter white color just pops against Preema's complexion.  The scarf really tied in the skirt. ....

In the Navy

 My outfit tonight to my hubby's work friend's dinner party...
Wearing all Kika Paprika pieces and I am loving this cream and navy combination.
This Jacket is so comfy cause it looks tailored but the waist and under arms are cotton so I kept it on the whole night. The skirt was stretchy so that was also very comfy to sit in....

Started the morning splitting up tasks. My hubby took my son to soccer game while I went grocery shopping with my daughter. we met at home and drove east to a big Pumpkin Patch we go every year to meet my Dad and my brother and his family.
Kids loved running around the huge field of large pumpkins. There were attempts to push, move, kick and climb them.
We had lunch and did some activities then drove the kids to my mom's to drop them off for the night and came home to go to our dinner party.
Busy but nice day...
