Looking at your big brown Eyes

 Today's outfit came out so much cuter than I had thought...
Initially I bought these pieces to put together the inspiration outfit below:
But I had already sold the polka dot scarf featured above so instead I added my fuzzy animal print beret that I bought from F21 months ago. It was perfect!

I love how the vest dyed in this 'cognac' color gives it suede like look:

I searched high and low for cuff boots this season with absolutely no luck. One day while at the outdoor class I saw these from gilt's sale and bought them right away. Exactly what I wanted and such a wearable low heel too. But when they came in the box I thought my legs were going to swim in them but since the widest part hits right at my knees it actually looks OK and makes my legs look thicker which I love.

Went to my first vendor bazaar today at a hotel. It was fun but clothes are very hard to sell at these types of events. People were just not looking at the rack but did sell accessories at least.
While I was working my hubby took the kids to buy their xmas tree with my step dad. Our tradition is kids get to pick a fresh mini tree that they decorate with their ornaments in the family room and we get to have the fancy (fake) tree in the living room.  But this time I guess they picked a full size tree so now it looks a bit pretentious with having two full sized trees in our house. They were so happy though. I self consult myself over and over to not get involved and let them hang their ornaments exactly where they want. WHich is completely grouped together exactly at their eye level.

Then we went to a BBQ at our friend's house!

Shades of Grey

My outfit on Tuesday.... Wore this to the outdoor class with my daughter at the park and also to my work show event at my house.
I had this jacket in navy but I love it so much that I bought it in this steel grey as they will not continue this style next season. It is most comfortable jacket that looks super trendy and chic.

Good as gold

 Playing catch-up once again...This was my outfit Monday....

The inspiration was from Oct 2011 issue of In Style Magazine:

I liked this unusual combination of mustard and magenta. 
Aren't you just loving this structured mustard tote!? I got it at Charming Charlie store when I was exchanging couple items I got for my b-day that didn't fit. It looks so cool!

My new hobby of collecting quality bracelets continue... This is from LOFT....

 As it was chilly I topped off the whole look with brown leather jacket and of course unfortunately swapped off the platform booties with regular flat boots.

It was so hard getting up and getting back into routine after a week off. Kids were happy to be back at school. We went to the indoor play area in the afternoon so my daughter can attend her gym class and I did homework with my son. Much better environment for homework we have found out...

Here are some photos from SUNDAY we spent at home...

My son is obsessed with this Marble track toy. He builds amazing tracks everyday....

And here is all of us playing this new game I bought as a recommendation of our outdoor class teacher.
Called the 'Pretty little princess' It is more fun to play as a family cause the kids were having a blast seeing daddy put on jewelry! My husband won and had all the pieces on but I won't post a photo of that so he won't divorce me! :)
