The Light between Oceans

Yesterday's Inspiration was from Nov 2013 issue of People Style Watch:

I liked the idea of the varsity jacket dressed up with heels…
In the morning though I had no time so I wore the base of this outfit which was jeans, tee and the jacket  with the Doc Marten style boots. At night for the book club meeting I added make-up necklace and the heels. It was quite a transformation which once agin proves the power of accessories...

 These are by far the most expansive pair of shoes in my collection. I got them on clearance years ago from New York's Century 21 store discounted down many times from their original price of $1500!!!

Jacket, Jeans, Necklace - Forever 21
Tee - Old Navy
Heels - Chanel

It was the last day of pre-school and our holiday party… I picked up my sister in law and nephew to join us. He was more interested in the toys in the class but they all enjoyed doing Christmas crafts, decorating the gingerbread houses the mommies had cut and assembled last week and a visit from Santa with book gifts topped it all. We ended the party with a yummy potluck….

After class my brother picked them up and took my daughter to my mom's. I rushed home to stop for 2 minutes then to my son's school to volunteer in his class. Was put in charge of coin bingo which the kids had quite a hard time adding up the coins but it was fun teaching. Then my son and I came back home and I desperately tried to finish my calendar projects on snapfish to order before the 55% off coupon expires. Then it was to swim class where my brother came to watch and back to home. My hubby was happy he only had one kids so they did homework and went ot dinner and then watched football together while I cooked my potluck dish and went to my friend's house for our book club meeting to discuss our last book 'The light between oceans'…

My friend who loves to bake made these professional looking gorgeous sugar cookies:

It was a great meeting as always first catching up on each other's lives and eating then discussing the book. Except the discussion questions we looked up happened to be the literature lovers questions and we didn't realize until the end but all noticed how they were worded like we were in a college lit course and were laughing about it.
Next book: 

Where'd You Go, Bernadette
