When you wish upon a star

 A very quick solo pose at Disney from our all day trip yesterday...
I wore the super cute Rapunzel tee my mom bought me for Christmas over the coated skinny's and studded boots. Had to add a t-neck and a hat since it was quite chilly. Even wore a coat over this by afternoon....

Hat, pants - Forever 21
Tee - Disney
T-neck - Charlotte Russe
Boots - Steve Madden

It was a miracle that we arrived and were at the gate just as they opened the doors. But as usual with our disney trips we go at the pace of the kids not rushing them and not worrying about what we don't see and enjoy what we do. With that pace there are always rides we have never done so it feels different to them each time. The big highlight for my princess was getting her hair, make-up and nails done at the bibbidi bobbidi boutique. They call it princess transformations by fairy god mother's. It was so cute to watch and she was in heaven. We weren't too crazy about the super tight bun but she wanted that style. During that time my hubby actually convinced my son to ride space mountain which was huge cause we would love them to love roller coasters as they qualify for the height requirements. We even did the new cars racer ride which was probably a bit much for my daughter but she hung in there. Then again she is much more of a dare devil than my son. We had such a fun day just the 4 of us.

 She picks the colors of the eye shadows and the nail polish. They are all very pale and tasteful. 

And below she gets fairy dust powder to make all her wishes come true which made me teary eyed watching. :)

Finally found the bow and arrow to go with her 'Merida' from Brave dress...

Happy Birthday to our little Princess!

We are not in Kansas anymore

 Seems to be a pattern this week to be behind so catching up again tonight with 2 outfit posts. 
This was my outfit on Tuesday. Of course I should have checked the forecast cause it was freezing at the park all morning. Yes, we complain when it is high 50s but that is too cold for us.  So I added a leather jacket but it still wasn't enough...

The inspiration btw was from a GAP ad...

I think it would have been better if the pants were not too tight....

Denim Shirt, pants, boots - Forever 21
Belt - Zara
Earrings - Thread Show


 Don't you love my new wrap bracelets from Bauble bar. I love the combination and they are so easy to put on with adjustable snaps...

 I felt the scarf was really bulky so tested a photo without it and it does look better but I needed the scarf for one cause I was cold for two it was too much cleavage without it for Preschool! :)

Jacket - H&M
Dress - from a bazaar in Turkey
Snood - Costco
Boots - Target
Bracelets - Bauble Bar

My husband and I started the P90X program which I am sure you have heard of. I hadn't but now everyone I mention it to has heard of it. Not a program I would pick but he was excited about it and I would do any program to have a workout buddy. We work out after the kids go to bed at 8 PM. Sounds daunting but it is actually a lot easier for me than working out in the morning when I am tired and stiff and sleepy. This way we can't flake cause we are always home and there is no excuse. Our bodies are in shock and turmoil of all the work we are making them do. Which is also why I have no time catch up on work stuff...

Tomorrow we are off to DISNEYLAND!

Go to Pieces - 3 outfit post

I am 3 days behind so going to catch up in one huge post....

This was my outfit on Saturday as I strolled through the mall with my daughter going in and out of the apple store to find a solution for my storage problems on the macbook.

 Since I have a new found love affair with my namesake jacket I wanted to wear it again today...

Jacket - 'daphne' in ocean by kikaPaprika Spring 2013 collection
Top - 'ella' in black by kikaPaprika last summer spring line
Skirt - Threadsence
Booties - Shoedazzle
Necklaces - so nice jewelry and cookie lee

This outfit started totally different using the same pants but different top and I just didn't feel comfortable so I switched it all up to end with this.

This one was inspired by one of the Shoe Dazzle look book ads:

I just love these leather leaf earrings by the way. I get at least one compliment on them every time I have them on. They are so soft and light as well...

Cardigan, Tee, Pants - Forever 21
Boots - Madden Girl
Accessories - Asos and vintage

 Wearing the pretty crochet skirt my mom has made for me and my daughter. She has grown out of hers but I thankfully have not grown so can keep wearing it. 

My inspiration was from the Westfield Style's last Fall Issue...

This suede shirt jacket is also my mom's.... Very vintage...

 We co-host her b-day with our friends whose daughter is a day apart from mine!
