1st Day

 Today's outfit for a very excitement filled day - my son's first day of school starting 1st grade...

The inspiration was from Anthropologie's summer catalog:
 Given how hot the weather is pulled these super summery inspirations so I can still wear blog worthy outfits and not die off heat...

 Tank, Belt - Forever 21
Skirt - From Turkey
Sandals - Victoria's Secret
Sunglasses - Karen Walker
Earrings - Thread Show
Bracelets - Bauble Bar

Oh my goodness what a crazy morning. Even though I did everything I can to get ready the night before and went to bed at 10pm and woke up at 6:30 AM we were still stressed and rushing to get out of the house by 7:30 AM.
We decided we all need to wake up earlier, get ready even more the night before and dress before breakfast as a family to avoid the morning rush.

Today was my son's first day starting 1st grade! Kindergarten at the same school was so removed from the entire school that it really felt like we were starting a brand new school this morning. To top it all my son's name was not on any class list (oversight but they knew which class he belonged to).
My son was very calm and cool though. The teacher seemed nice, young and very modern looking. You know me I pay attention to what she was wearing and it was quite cool: a form fitting black pencil skirt topped with a silky black hi-low tank and black wedges. She had short blond hair in a modern cut.
We heard she doesn't have kids and has a reputation of being impatient but my son is a model student so that is not a worry to me. What I care is she is organized and fair and a good communicator. I was so happy to get a long letter from her this afternoon explaining her teaching style and how she will communicate with us.
After my son's school drop off we went to the park to sign up for my daughter's outdoor class. The heat was unbearable in the sun. And afterwards as I planned we went to the indoor play area so I can dedicate couple hours to my job search then picked up my son and had the kids cool off in the pool....


  1. Congratulations, it is a big day. You must be so proud. I liked the detailed description of the teacher's outfit :-)

  2. This is a great look and that color really compliments you. :)

    Love all the first day pictures! That's quite a milestone!

  3. wow...he looks so grown up already! my son just started kindergarten, and he loves it (thank goodness!)! i really like his teacher, too.


Love to hear your thoughts...
