A little bit country, a lil bit goth

Not sure where I saved this inspiration from. Probably pintrest… 
It seemed wasteful to ruin my perfectly clean and ironed plaid blouse just to tie it around my waist as an accessory but I do love the pop of color it adds and gives that layered look without actually layering…. 

Jacket, Top, Scarf - Forever 21
Plaid blouse - Target
Jeans - J Crew
Boots, Earrings - Steve Madden

Did bootcamp again…
Forgot how it feels to have those feel me good endorphins you get after a good workout. 
Your body feels tight and your. Muscles are tired and you are filled with this feeling of accomplishment
Also love connecting with new friends getting to know them better. 
These ladies are amazing, with their rock hard bodies and a stamina that will shame a 20-year-old. One of them was just commenting how she's going to drop her oldest daughter at a 6 AM ice-skating training. Then go to her half marathon race. You know just the usual Saturday morning activity. 
So anytime you read my post and think I'm doing crazy things know that I am surrounded by such examples. Which makes my activities seem very mediocre...
But this is Southern California and a posh coastal neighborhood. Wouldn't expect anything less!

Keep on Believing

Tuesday's outfit was inspired by a look in a shoe website called Sole Society:
I get inspirations from all sorts of sites and magazines. Retail sites are full of outfit gems… 
I loved the 'riding' look of this outfit with the skinny jeans tall boots and a tweed blazer. The white denim is unexpected against the dark colors...

 Blazer - H&M
Top - Kika Paprika
Jeans - Zara

Necklace - Forever 21

Well I figured out where all these mom's in our school that look ridiculously fit in their perfect fitting gym clothes all go to…
There is apparently boot camp trainer that holds classes 6 days a week in the neighborhood right after drop off time which suits the mommies perfectly….
And turns out I know most of them that take the class. The trainer is a guy our age and knows his audience. Meaning he realizes we are not 20 sth young guys training. He is encouraging and knows when to push and when to back off. I felt completely out of shape but not uncomfortable. He started with a 'light' run which is probably the toughest thing for me as I hate running. But I am also horrible with directions and the fear of getting lost and not finding my way back motivated me to keep up with them. Of course I was so stiff and soar and hurting afterwards but will probably keep with it as working out with others really helps and the time and location couldn't be more fitting….

Had a fun morning following my daughter's sleepover with her friend. The boys stayed at our house to watch the playoffs and I went with my friend and Mom to take the girls ice skating another friend met with us too and the girls skated and skated their hearts out until the afternoon.
Then it was back to the house to prepare my many golden globe cocktails to watch the big show and the red carpet with the girls…
