Boho Brights

 I was pretty happy with how this outfit came together this morning. The inspiration was from the feature on creating bohemian outfits from May 2013 issue of I think Lucky magazine. Or may be In Style....
 I loved this midi length crochet skirt paired with boho pieces and denim jacket. My mom had found this hot pink crochet skirt at a thrift store and I only wore it once so my combo is a bit more colorful but I like it...

 I actually added 3 belts to give the look. The cream one has very subtle bronze and matt silver beading. The chevron print one is pretty thin and then the bone and beaded one. All tie belts.

Turkish handmade choker necklace paired with my latest acquire from Bauble bar and the cuff bracelet my mom bought me couple years ago were perfect matches...

I actually had a cool outfit yesterday and thought I would do photos before I went out at night but of course it was a total rush and I never took them. This is why I really need to take my photos in the morning. Whenever I leave that for later it doesn't happen.
Yesterday we had my little nephew with us. I waited for the weather to warm up but it never did so after ordering cupcakes for my sister's shower I took the kids to a park by the bay...

Then took them both to costco shopping for the shower. Afterwards dropped off my nephew and went to my moms to start decorating and setup as the shower will be at her house.
I was so tired. I think the workouts were actually giving me energy cause this week I haven't worked out and have not eaten the best food and even though I am supposed to be resting I feel so much more tired and lack of energy.
After dinner at mom's house the kids spent the night there and my hubby and I went to the movies to see 'now you see me'. It was pretty good.

It was nice sleeping in this morning with the kids not being at home. We met them at the acting class and since it was their last class they showed us what they have been working on. It was cute.
My daughter was so into her 'dinosaur' role it was funny to watch.
Then we went to register them for swim classes at the Y and then went out to lunch.
Going back to mom's for more set-up and prep work this afternoon then going out with the girls to line dancing again!
Since I went last week everyone has been wanting to go....

Mint Condition

 Yesterday's combo... I snatched these eyelet pants from J Crew's flash discount on sale items event...
They are a bit thick with all around eyelet plus lining but super cool and sweet looking.
Paired it with the floral soft blouse and a fun necklace...

Blouse - H&M
Necklace - Bauble Bar
Pants, Sandals - J Crew

I had my dr appointment so my mom took my daughter to pre-school and I picked up my son and took him to lunch with his classmate he has been asking to do lunch with for a week now. It was so interesting to watch how his demeanor is totally different when he is with a boy than when he is with a girl. With a male friend he would be all goofy and making jokes and sneaking in potty talk. With a girl he is quieter, smiles and talks softly and just acts different. So cute.
We met my mom and my little girl at the swim class and afterwards we all went to see 'Epic' together.

At Pre-School though it was last day of class and one of my friend's 100 year old grandmother was visiting:

 So sorry I have been MIA again. This weekend has taken such a toll on us I am still recovering. I actually decided to take this week off as I am wiped out. Have to re-group my energy before hosting my sister's shower this weekend...

Today's inspiration was from J Crew catalog:

 I wore the sweater backwards so I didn't have to layer and it showed the necklace better on the front...

Sweater - Forever 21
Necklace - Thread Show
Jeans - Vintage
Purse - Maxx
Sandals - J Crew

Nothing too exciting today but here are some photos from our crazy weekend...

Saturday morning my sis and her husband took my son to Wild Animal park for their company picnic while my hubby took my daughter to her pre school talent show.
While my mom and I set-up the house for my son's big b-day in the afternoon.
His 6th birthday party was epic with close to 70 people and DJ and a dance host. It felt like a club when you entered our backyard and even the grown ups were digging the music especially over drinks.
It was a fun party that went almost until kids' bedtime (8 PM). We were wiped out at the end.
Sunday took the kids to Turkish school then went to a pool party at a friends house!
