My husband dropped off my daughter at my mom's so I could chaperone my son's class field trip to the aquarium…
There were a lot of comments from the other mommy chaperones and the teacher how we were the best dressed family!…
Kids had a great time and they were such an incredible class of kids so well behaved and good natured and all so smart and attentive during the lab lecture.

Wearing sweats in style

 I just adored how this sweat pant outfit came together today….
The inspiration was from Victoria's Secret December 2013 catalog I think:
 I had been saving this inspiration for a day I have not much going on so I want to be comfy but still yet in a what I call 'blog worthy' outfit… I think what makes tit chic is the beret and the booties. I decided to go with the deep red booties for a pop color...

Today was a day of catching up again. After my daughter's ballet class in the morning we went to the indoor play area so I can clean up my emails, follow up on stuff I have neglected and book my award travel flight to Boston during spring break. Booking award travel sucks. And of course the 2 days I took to decide the rates went up like crazy but at least I got better flight times.
Picked up my son from school and we went to the library do exchange our books and finish homework. Then to the rec center so kids can play and my son's tennis class that followed that.
They were very very dirty at the end so jumped in the bath as soon as we got home while I cooked dinner. After our usual 30 minute of reading they were ready for bed.

I don’t play no games so don’t get it confused

 I LOVED today's combo…  

The inspiration was Rihanna on 'Who What Wear' site (I know again….):

I re-created the combo using my lace baseball cap, coated skinnies and the new shaggy cropped sweater….

I feel my bronze and pewter studded hoops are a lot cooler actually

And what made the outfit I think were my new slip on sneakers… These are popping everywhere now and I like jumping on a trend early on… I wanted a pair that had a thick sole so they make a statement. I have too many animal print shoes so went with solid black instead...

TODAY (Wednesday):
Started the morning with decorating the leprechaun trap a little but we had to stop and go to preschool.

After class we visited my brother in law who had surgery yesterday. Had lunch at their house then went to pick up my son and came home to finish our decorating projects.
My daughter is not a minimalist to say the least so it is very blingy and decorated on all sides….

(the side my daughter did all on her own and I stopped my self from interfering):

We then worked on my son's school project which was to decorate a shemrock with all the things he feels he is lucky. Wrote this presentation on the back so he could hold it up and present that way.
Need to take a photo of that tomorrow….

After homework and a whole slew of snack we went to swim practice then back to home for baths (which now kids take them on all their own until the end where I finish up washing and rinsing)…
Then my son worked on a leprechaun trap on his own using his link'n'logs….
