High Contrast

 Last night's outfit for dinner with the girls…

The inspiration was from Lucky Magazine's February 2014 issue...

I loved this black and white combo with a pop of orange...
 Here is an interesting pose when I tried to duplicate the side jump… I gave up after two tries. :)

 I love these earrings….

My super old wide legged linen pants… They keep coming back in style...

Blazer - Forever 21
Top - Kika Paprika
Pants - Target
Clutch - Arden B
Faux Fur scarf - can't remember…
Booties - Juicy Couture

Knowing I was going out at night I put on my workout clothes in the morning for my daughter's class and as soon as we came home I fit in the 25 minute workout and shower but then had to put on jeans cause I couldn't wear this all white outfit… We had lunch then went to pick up my son. He had a choice to make he could either go to his usual swim team practice or baseball practice which were at the same time so can only pick one. He chose baseball which actually started half hour earlier and a bit further away with hard parking so it was a total rush to leave the house and make it there. After we got home my husband was going to take the to dinner but they were so dirty so I decided to wash them which ate into my getting ready time but thank goodness he came home earlier and I got ready and left half hour early to catch happy hour… Met up with the girls and had a lovely dinner… OK I went out of the nutrition plan obviously by night but It is OK… I stuck out with the workout routine and will go back on Sunday….

Oh, here are the photos of my daughter trying on outfits at Nordstrom for their children's fashion show next Saturday:

 This was my favorite outfit totally spring and fashion show worthy but of course the little princess wouldn't go for it...

This is the dress she chose and won't be talked out of:
She picked out the headband herself to go with the dress….

Let the rhythm change your world

Here I am with my morning protein shake… :)

Thursday's Inspiration was another 'who what wear' website look:
Great colors together and so chic… I added the chunky Dr. Marten style boots….

Hat - lucky
Blouse - H&M
Jeans, Cardigan - Forever 21
Boots - Target
Purse - Shoedazzle
Sunglasses - Karen Walker
Necklaces - Bauble Bar and Cookie Lee

Went to my daughter's ballet then we rushed to her 5 year check-up appt. Afterwards we had a nice sit down lunch at the mall then met up with a friend at Nordstrom's. The girls are going to do a fun little fashion show just for family next week before the store opens. It is more of a Nordstrom's sales campaign but something my daughter would like. She chose a big tulle flower girl type dress to wear at the show. We then had them play at the play area before I had to rush to pick up my son.
Then it was our usual thursday craziness of stopping at the library followed by the rec center then tennis lesson then taking home two ridiculously dirty, tired and hungry children home to bath and feed and put to bed! :)
After that I did a double work out since I am going out Friday night. It was cardio and ab intervals!

Tell me sth I don't know

 Wednesday outfit was inspired by a Forever 21 look:

Jacket - kika Paprika
Blouse - Forever 21
Denim Leggings - Guess
Ankle Boots - Forever 21

It was a crazy day of coordination of events just so I can get my car repaired for a recall and other maintenance. I took the car to the dealer with my daughter then we took their shuttle to her school. Because I am doing this nutrition plan I have to carry a hard cooler with my snacks (cause the soft cooler does not keep it cold enough) then there is all the liquids so our hands were so full.
We then hitched a ride from a friend at pre-school to my sister's house which is super close to the school. My brother in-law is at home for a while as he is recovering from a surgery so we were going to hang out but my car was done and my mom got out of work early and picked us up instead of the shuttle to take us to the dealer. Then she even volunteered to keep my daughter and I went to pick up my son just in the nick of time solo. We then got some snacks at Starbucks and went through a car wash and came home for homework before swim practice…

Last night was Full body circuit. A bit too many planks and up and down moves that make me dizzy but we hung in there. There is one guy in the video that Shaun T calls out 'he is 41 years old' like he is saying the guy is 60. I am not sure if I should be insulted that 41 is so old or should be flattered that we are doing the video even though we are that age. :)

Live by the sun

This yellow and black combo was inspired by a new blog I had visited a few months ago called 

I liked the simple color combo with pop of red on the purse and the gold metallic heels….

For my crazy days with the kids though I couldn't pull of those wedges… For an indoor class for example I could wear them but not for an outdoor class with far away bathrooms etc…

Necklace, rings - Bauble Bar
Sweater - Lithon (Nordstrom's)
White Top - Topshop
Pants - J Crew
Wedges - Dolce Vita for Target
Flats - Dolce Vita 
Bracelets - C Wonder

Helped out a friend in the morning who had a Dr appointment by dropping off her kid at her preschool which is very close to my son's school. Then went to the outdoor class with my daughter. The weather was gorgeous and the park was right on the bay so very uplifting. 
Afterwards we went to the indoor play area so I can catch up on stuff and also book my hotel for our upcoming trip to Boston… We then picked up my son and came home for homework and dinner. Since we are doing the nutrition I don't only cook dinner at night but also try to prepare lunches and snacks for the next day so it takes quite  long time and creates lots of dishes to clean up after… At least the kids are totally digging the healthy dinners. Grilled Halibut tacos, roasted new potatoes with baked chicken etc…
And then after they go to bed we do our workout. Tuesday night was Speed!
