Change of Pace

 Today's combo came out pretty cute in my opinion. You never know with these risky combo's sometimes they look great sometimes not so much.

This inspiration was saved very long ago from this online store 'Make Me Chic' website lookbook:
Of course I haven't bought any of these items but I owned very similar pieces to create the combo...

 I double wrapped the infiniti scarf to create the cape effect...

 Saw this 'evil eye' nail design from ElleSees blog and adopted it right away. My base blue was a little darker but at least I had all the colors at home already. Some evil eyes have yellow in them too. I might try that next...

Hat - was a gift from my mom to my sister and she felt it was too big for her. 
Cape - Infiniti scarf from Costco of all places!
Top - Gap
Short - Forever 21
Tights - We love color
Boots - Forever 21

Instead of regular class today we had family PJ night in class in the evening. So we had a free day with my daughter went to Nordstrom rack for xmas shopping. After couple hours treated her to burgers and fries at a diner in the mall and ordered here a 'pink' shake! She had to stand to drink from it!

Then in the evening we picked up a pizza pie and went to the indoor class so kids can have dinner then put on their PJs and listen to stories and watch movies with their friends on pillows and blankets.
My brother and nephew joined us as well...

Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas means a little bit more...

 Today's combo was inspired by the old Aug 2011 issue of Elle Magazine: 

It was a small photo in larger page like below. I liked the argyle combination with the military neutral colors....

 I am not 100% convinced the red top underneath worked with this combo...
Coat - Guess
Top - Newport News
Vest - J Crew
Pants - Bebe
Necklace - gift from Mom
Boots - Steve Madden

After kids' school today we met up with my friend and went downtown to Balboa Park. We had dinner at the very nice (and only) restaurant there then took them to see the 'Grinch who stole christmas' play.
My son and I have been going every years for the last two years but it was first time for my daughter.
All the kids were in a trans while watching the show. It was so much more fun watching their reaction than the show itself. My daughter kept squeezing my arm and seeking shelter when she got scared but couldn't take her eyes off of the stage.
It was such a fun night....

 Purchased these at zulilly!
