Higher Ground

 Doing another two outfit post to catch up. This was my outfit yesterday (Monday)...
I have about 3 different inspirations to create with this first ever tailored tweed blazer jacket from Kika Paprika. It is the latest trend this season in pastel colors hence all my inspirations photos are from Nordstrom's, bloomingdale's and kate spade lookbooks. 

Today's combo was from Nordstrom's Feb 2013 spring catalog:
 Love the laid back look with cuffed jeans and a long tunic button down. The pointy tow kitten heels are the perfect end to this outfit...

Used my colorful aviators to match the spring look...

I have owned these shoes for over 15 years. I knew they were the most unique pair when I found them at Century 21 in NYC when I used to live there. Still pricey at 75% off they were well worth it.

 Jacket - 'Carly' in peony tweed by kikaPaprika
Blouse - from Turkey
Jeans - Elle
Kitten Heels - Ballin
Sunglasses - Thread Show

Of course it was a bit too chilly for me to keep the heels with no socks on so I wore my fashion sneakers instead to go to preschool....

 This boho look is from today. 
Inspired by the photo below in Elle's Oct 2012 issue:

Cardigan, tights, belt, sunglasses - Forever 21
Dress - yesstyle.com
Boots - Target
Hat - Lucky
Necklaces - vintage and Park Lane

Easter season has officially started. Our first egg hunt was with our outdoor class at a park very close to our house by the beautiful bay. 
We were very productive even managing to fit in a quick grocery shopping between dropping my son off at school and going to the class!

Today's art was making easter baskets out of paper bags. Juliet simply said 'you make it mommy I am going to play'. So it is my creation! :)

We went by the water for a mini shoot and she was amazing giving me all sorts of poses! 
A natural I tell you...


  1. Love these looks. Both are so different, but look great!

    Your daughter is so cute! :)

  2. I love your first outfit and you match exactly with the magazine picture! Love the Kika jacket and the shoes are so sweet! Juliet is gorgeous with her easter dress and her answer is so much her but good art work for you:) I love her last pose especially that mischevious smile!! And I am loving your natural hair you look fabulous with your hair framing your pretty face. Something a mother is expected to say but it is sooo true:)


Love to hear your thoughts...
