The Rookie

 Today's outfit was inspired by the recent Nordstorom's Catalog:

I do love this kika tweed jacket in the mint color but wanted to show how cute the peach color can also be in this simple but chic combo....

 I am going in for a major hair change once again this Monday. Hey,  I gave normal hair a try for couple of months and it is just not me. This medium length and simple color feel to blend. So i am going shorter this time since I went super long with extensions before and going to try a different shades lighter/blonder too.... It has been also hard to keep my hair nicely groomed as we work out every night and I only wash it every other night. I use dry shampoo and go with this half wavey style instead of polished...

Took the kids to their first acting class this morning. They were excited and definitely not shy about being dropped off and my hubby and I had an hour to chat and have our morning coffee.
Then it was off to my son's baseball game. The weather never warmed up and we were freezing on the bleachers.  Afterwards we had lunch then went home to drop off the kids with daddy and grandpa and my mom and I met my sister at the mall and spent the next 4 hours shopping for a grey vest/pant suit combo for my son to wear at my sister's wedding. It was the most frustrating and un-fun shopping trip ever. For some reason every single store had what we were looking for in colors of navy, tan or black but NOT gray. When we found one it was either too cheap or the sizes started at size 8 while my son wears 6. It was super frustrating. We might just buy online and hope it is good quality. At least we did get his blue converses he will be wearing and in the process got him some cute clothes. :)
Dinner at home was nice as the guys had BBQ'd and we played the dinner game again this time with my mom and stepdad and it was so much fun. The kids really get into it and we spend at least 10 minutes having a nice group conversation which has rarely occurred.


  1. You look absolutely gorgeous!! that jacket is such a beauty!!

    Style Without Limits

  2. Nice shots. I like the casual glam style. I always enjoy your family posts. What's the dinner game? Debbie @

  3. I love the wild and free hair on you! I also really like the Carly combo. I can't wait to see pictures of the new hair. I go Thursday to a new gal and I'm going to see what she comes up with. I still think I want mine longer yet, as I am going to have boudoir pictures taken this summer for my husband's 50th. This will be a huge out-of-the box for me.


Love to hear your thoughts...
