Stripes and Neon

 Yesterday's outfit was inspired by the Vince Camuto ad in the People Style Watch April 2013 issue:

 My inspiration folders were getting too big so I decided I am going to start wearing the latest stuff I have saved so it is more on trend and recent and easier for me to choose from.
I liked this navy and white bottom combo with pops of neon and khaki.
The new flared striped pants I got from a thrift store with their original Ralph Lauren tags on!
I originally topped it off with my khaki trench but mine was too girly and it was too warm for it so the sleeveless one was more practical...

 sorry my close-ups are never that great because I don't have a remote for my timer on the camera. And they really should be taken by someone else so it can re-focus. Oh well, you get the jist of it. :)

Trench, tee, necklace - Forever 21
Purse - H&M
Bracelet, Heels - Shoedazzle
Pants - Ralph Lauren

My daughter is on spring break this week while of course my son is not! But yet he has half days. So we stayed home in the morning so I could finish 4 loads of laundry that I didn't have the energy to do on the weekend then picked up my son and treated them to lunch at Rubio's. Then we drove to my friends house for an egg coloring/decorating playdate.
I say this again and again but I can't voice how blessed I feel to be surrounded by mommy friends who are like minded and just as crazy as me and are willing to do such fun playdates and outings even though it takes so much effort and all our energy we enjoy it so much.

 My son came up with this half and half coloring idea which was a lot harder than it sounded but the yellow combos came out so cute....

This is what happens by the way if I dress her in pants and a top. She then insists on wearing a princess costume on top of it all! Too bad cause the the mint pants and the pastel plaid shirt she had on from H&M was so cute.

 We set the camera on a high table to take this but I didn't realize there was a light right on me!


  1. love those striped pants! the colors work nicely together.

  2. Striped pants are my latest obsession but I haven't managed to get my hands on a good one yet. This outfit is really fashion forward :-)
    My daughter, who's 5, tops all her tights and t-shirt outfits with a ballerina skirt! Love you're daughter's new haircut, it suits her little face.
