There's time to spare

 Yesterday's outfit was inspired by this Chictopia Post:

Just a simple combo but I love the crispness of the white denim with black striped top and army green jacket....

Boots - Steve Madden
Everything Else - Forever 21!

I miss my extensions already... Getting my hair done today so lets see with color if my hair looks as exciting as it did when it was loner. :(

Boho Chic

 Totally behind at this point. I had a great outfit on Monday but never had a chance to take photos and thought I would take them at my work party but of course there was never a time. 
This was my outfit yesterday (Tuesday)... The inspiration was from last fall's 'westfield' magazine...which was given to us at one of the Westfield malls during Fashion week....

Mixing my fur collar knit vest, the new lucky hat and my eggplant kika skirt... :)

This whole trend of rings on every finger is coming back. It was a trend when I was back in high school so I have a whole box of pure silver rings from Turkey from that era....

Hat - Lucky
Vest - LOFT
Lace top , Necklace, tights - Forever 21
Skirt - kika Paprika ('Brit' in eggplant)
Boots - Steve Madden
Purse - Target

Went to a museum somehow we have never been called 'Museum of Man' with our outdoor class.
It was a bone chilling cold day I keep thinking the weather changed for good and do not check the forecast and get caught wearing either too heavy or too light.
Anyway once we were indoors it was fine. My daughter really gets along with two girls that are twin sisters. So naturally we hung out together and when we left the museum and faced the bitter cold again we pleasantly ran into this outdoor cafe with heating lamps a warm lunch menu and a serene fenced in lawn for kids to run around while we sipped hot tea. It was like a mini vacation. :) Which I needed since my day was followed with costco shopping and then hosting a work party at my house.

In Egyptian Dress Up clothes

 In the play area to mimic a market place where they barter goods.... Kids are sailing on the wooden boat...

Then there was a whole section for kids to experience having disabilities like prosthetic arms or legs or hands and being blind or in a wheel chair....

And at night at my work party with my friend who hosted it:

Off you go

 Today's outfit for an unplanned outing with the kids. 
The inspiration from this Chictopia Post:
 I had something else planned for today but wasn't feeling it when we had to leave in a rush so this looked simple and cozy enough....
 I am seeing a lot of short and long necklaces layered trend everywhere. So gave it a try....

Jacket - Andrew Mark
Top, Pants, Boots, Necklaces - Forever 21
Purse - Michael Kors

Had a very leisurely morning at home but eventually had to get going. Picked up the house and got everyone ready and we went out for lunch then stopped at ulta which was not fun with the kids as my daughter I think sprayed every tester cologne at her reach level and also even managed to put make up on while I was looking for something else. We then went to the movies with them and they were good once again. Spent the rest of the day at home where my sister and brother in law came to visit and have dinner.
