say we're only dreaming

Tonight's inspiration was from the 'Late Afternoon' blog:
 This was one of those combo's that didn't come together as cool as I thought it would. The sweater should be more fitted the shorts more fluid and the socks and shoes I felt were not the best but it was good enough as I hate changing....

Sweater, Shorts, Socks & Clutch - Forever 21
Blouse - Bebe
Shoes - Blowfish
Necklace - Cookie Lee

In the morning my mom and stepdad came to take my daughter to her soccer match while my son and I went with my husband to his tennis match. My dad and aunt came there to watch too. Unfortunately he lost but it was great to watch. And the best part is after the game my parents took the kids and we had the whole day to ourselves. Went out to lunch then took a long nap and went out to dinner and a movie.
It was so relaxing....

Class Act

Today's inspiration was from Bee (Atlantic Pacific) from last year I believe:

 This was a perfect time to finally wear this combo cause I wore the gingham shirt yesterday so got one more use out of it before laundry and ironing. 
I also figured out a better way to utilize my digital outfit inspirations. I flag a handful I might want to wear that week and print 2X3 mini prints of them all on one page so I can remember when I am in the bedroom without the laptop. Has been working. At least getting the last of spring/summer inspirations before fall comes. Which will be much later in San Diego I am sure.

Blouse - Ralph Lauren
Dress - chicwish webstie
Bracelets - Bauble Bar and Cookie Lee

Pre-school with my daughter then went to the indoor play area for job search and picked up my son and when my husband got home we took the kids Chuck'E'Cheese per kids request for weeks now. They were so high on the games and winning tickets and request tokens like crazy. Similar to gambling addicts in Vegas. But they were cute. We met up with friends there so they were all running around together...

Another big thing today is my daughter got to take home 'Wrinkles' from Preschool. This is outside of the school building...

I am in it for the sugar

 Today's mixed pattern combo was inspired by this photo in a magazine (I forgot to note which one):
I think it was an ad for 'hue'....May be...

Sweater - Target (from some designer collaboration)
Gingham Blouse - Ralph Lauren (from TJ Maxx)
Jeans - Rock Republic from Kohl's
Oxfords - Shoedazzle
Necklace - Cookie Lee

A usual whirlwind that starts with ballet class, library, back to home for job search then picking up my son, park, soccer practice and dinner!

Tell me Princess

 Today's combo turned out a lot cuter than I imagined.... 

My inspiration was from the 'Style Obsession' blog (from couple years ago) and the blog is now called 'bed knows and baubles':

My top and shorts turned out to be the same tone which made my delicate pastel floral necklace totally pop. There were so many compliments for the necklace today. And I added the gold flats for some shine...

Top - H&M
Lace Shorts - Forever 21
Gold Flats - Boutique 9
Necklace - gift from my sister

It was my daughter's 'teacher's helper' day which means I bring the snack for the whole class and have to do all the set-up and clean-up that goes with it. Yes, big day for all of us! :)
We tried to get creative with the snack too so it was fresh romaine lettuce, turkey cold cuts, cheddar cheese and fresh baguette bread sliced so the kids could make their own mini sandwiches. It was popular. Especially the bread.
My daughter truly enjoyed her status for the day... It was also 'bring your stuffed animal' day at school where they got to introduce their toy and draw a picture of it and measure its height etc...
Kids loved it...

 Gets to ring the bell to let everyone know it is circle time....
