It is what it is

Today's outfit was inspired by this Chictopia Post:

Honestly I decided to wear this outfit couple days ago but did not check this morning until I pulled the photo to the blog now and realized I could have added a blue scarf and a black belt. Oh well...

Everyone comments and loves these earrings. Great purchase from a vendor fair... Made out of soft real leather. So simple yet so unique.

Vest - 'Angie' in cognac by kikaPaprika (but this sample for only $44 plus tax)
Striped top - from Turkey
Denim Leggings - Kohl's
Boots - Steve Madden
Beret - forever 21
Earrings - Vendor bazaar
Purse - TJ Maxx

Well had different plans today where I was going to pick up my friend from the airport and hang out together and drive to Laguna Beach for the big Kika Paprika Runway but she missed her flight so I am still in SD. Ran all my errands and cleaned out my car and packed. And since my parents were already taking the kids my hubby and I had a movie date where we saw 'Zero Dark Thirty'. Now only have 1 or 2 movies to see that are Oscar nominated. :)

Will be driving to beautiful Laguna Beach tonight. Can't wait to show you what Kika's next season has to offer. It is all a mystery to us consultants as well and I can't wait  for them reveal the spring collection with a big Fashion Show tomorrow night!

House Call

 I had something else planned to wear today but woke up to rain and immediately wanted to wear a combo that involved my rain boots and of course from no other than Bee:

 It really was the perfect amount of layering I needed today. The skirt felt a tad too short for my daily life but the amount of layers and OTK socks and tall boots made up for it....

Trench - Guess
Denim shirt, belt, skirt, socks, necklace, scarf - Forever 21
Boots - Henri Bendel

Pre-school this morning which happens to be the last day of falls semester and wednesday the new semester will start. 
We had a dual purpose playdate afterwards. My daughters two close buddies came over to play while their mom checked out my clothing line and shopped the samples. It was fun playing dress=up. The girls were so cute trying on Juliet's shoes and night gowns while we were trying on outfits. 

I had picked out these cute skinny red jeans with this top for her but she went with leggings and a tutu instead and packed up more dress-up accessories in her little purse.

Misty Mountain top

Today's outfit was inspired by yet another very old chictopia Post:

This combo reminded me of the denim dress I bought on the street in Turkey 4 years ago for under $20. Funny, how wearing OTK socks so would have been out of my comfort zone in the past but now I don't even think twice before wearing them to pre school!
 I pulled the socks over my knees but they keep sliding down.

Leather Jacket - Andrew Marc
Scarf - old and can't remember
Denim Dress - from Turkey
Socks - Forever 21
Booties - Steve Madden
Earrings - Charity Bazaar

Went to preschool. Then picked up my son. My step-dad came over to take the kids on a surprise trip to Sea World so I had a couple hours which was great.
Then met my friend at the mall for a yummy dinner and a movie. Saw 'Silver linings play book' very cute. Funny with some great acting.

Take heart

 This casual combo was inspired by a very old chictopia post from last couple of years:

I liked the idea of blazer jacket with leggings and converses....

 Blazer Jacket - Newport News
Blouse - from Turkey
Leggings - H&M

Another crazy day. Had my nephew with us which was nice. My dad joined us at the park (pre school class)  which was a great help. Then had a friend come over with her son to shop and had to pick up my son and my parents brought home cooked dinner. My days are getting a bit out of hand but hanging in there...

Studded Tartan

 This was my outfit today. I am so bummed cause I had a pretty cool outfit on yesterday and never had time to take photos and was way too lazy to put it all on again. Oh well.
Today I picked a comfortable outfit to hold my all day open house. I also had to wear something from my line that was not on sale and I have officially decided to keep this top at least one more season as I love the deep bordeaux color and the silky fabric.

Don't you love these slipper style shoes. Plaid tartan with silver studs. For $12 from shoedazzle!

Top - 'Paige' in bordeaux by kikaPaprika 
Jeans, necklaces - Forever 21
Shoes - shoe dazzle

Had a fun open house today selling off my samples. Everyone came staggered so I could spend quality time with each friend/customer and there was never a time where I didn't have someone shopping.
Put away lots of hangers which is the goal. Need to make some room for the new line that will take their place on my rack in February!
I booked many parties too so hoping to start the season strong...
Nothing better than spending a day styling people.
