The grey concept

 Today's combo was from a very old inspiration...
People Style Watch's September (wait for it) 2011 issue!
I didn't acquire the neon scarf until recently so may be that is why it took me this long to put it together...
 I have a very similar grey and black striped t-neck actually but I was too worried about the weather warming up so I decided do a t-shirt and cardigan layers instead....

 'Almost not crazy'... almost...

T-shirt - stylemint
Cardigan and Scarf - Forever 21
Jeggings - Guess
Boots - from Kika's runway show
Accessories - Cookie Lee

A day cramped with appointments today... After pre-school my friend and her mom and her kids came over. After lunch they shopped my clearance racks and we had so much fun putting together outfits. I ran to get my son but then was running late. My mom came to the rescue. Not only did she bring a customer to shop my racks but also took my daughter to her ballet rehearsal so I can stay home.
My son was excited about building a new lego set.
We joined for a free trial month for this Netflix of legos club called 'Pleygo'. 
Just like Netflix you pick a Que. of lego sets your kid likes. They send you the set with the instructions. Once your kid builds it and plays with it you break it down and send it back and they send you the next set in your queue.
I think it is brilliant. A huge part of the lego play is the act of building. Kids hardly play with the sets once they are built. So instead of constantly buying new sets this I feel will satisfy his thirst for building.
We'll see. He built the set he got within an hour and was very happy with it.

Crazy Skates

 Today's combo was inspired by the J  Crew Fall 2013 issue:

Scarf, Jacket, Jeans - Forever 21
Top - From Turkey
Booties - Shoedazzle
Purse - Steve Madden
Earrings and Ring - Cookie Lee

Our crazy Thursdays.... Ballet in the morning, then library. Short break in the middle followed by picking up my son going to the park. Tennis 1 hour then soccer practice for 45 minutes then dinner at Rubio's. In between these we read books, and do school work with each while the other is doing the sport activity....

 On the way to Ballet.... We use the scooter instead of a stroller so she can zoom right along....

Lady's a Vamp

 Today's combo was inspired by a recent issue of Victoria's Secret Catalog:

 I always feel uneasy about wearing solid leggings because I have such skinny legs but at the recent fall fashion show we watched so many models were strutting the skin tight almost like tights look and my mom and sister kept telling me I could pull it off so here it goes....

 I didin't realize those water stains were so visible in the photos. In real life you couldn't see them. That is what you get for doing photo shoots after cleaning up the breakfast dishes....

Fedora - Kirna Zabete for Target
Blouse, Sweater - Forever 21
Booties - Shoedazzle
Necklaces, Bracelets - Bauble Bar

A bit of a crazy day. Met my mom at my daughter's pre-school mid morning so I can leave for my Dr appointment. She went off to pick up my son who gets off half day then we met up at my son's dentist appointment and I took over and she went to her house with my daughter. My son had his 7th filling done. He has bad genes. And then we picked  up my daughter and headed home after hanging out with grandparents for a little while. We are living a temporary fall day for one day I am sure here in SD. We even had a fire and the kids were winter PJs which they were so looking forward to.
I am sure in couple days the heat will be back but enjoying fall for now.
