Sweet Child of Mine

Thursday's outfit was inspired by J Crew's most recent catalog from September 2015:
 Striped shirt with black ponte pants and red shoes. I added a purple sweater tied at waist instead of a black and white one around the shoulders…
Plus a statement necklace… 

Shirt, Sweater - Forever 21
Pants - BCBG
Shoes - Sole Society
Necklace - Bauble Bar


My daughter fell after her soccer practice, it was scary but she is OK now and thanks to my parents I was able to attend at least the classroom portion of my son's grade back to school night…

A touch of Neon

My outfit Wednesday… Inspired by this pinterest post:

I liked the mix of animal print with white and pop of neon and the statement necklace...

T-Shirt, Purse - H&M
Pants - Zara
Necklace - Cookie Lee
Slip On Sneakers - Sam Edelman

We started an after school playdate group for wednesdays and I took the first shift and supervised as they played. But then driving a full car of kids (6 in the back) was a bit overwhelming. Whenever we have bunch of kids over actually the only kids that act out are my own. Every parent says the same thing. Our own children start acting all weird when friends are over.

Dealing with some house problems of leaking roof and wheat/flour moth infestation so it was a crazy day. Plan to start a new diet to loose the summer flab so my mom and sister had a meeting to purchase the products and we hope to start next week and stick with it together for moral support. :)

Well sports have officially started. Both kids had soccer games on Saturday in record heat temperatures. Unfortunately I thought my daughter would be more into it this year but we were wrong and she has very little interest in the sport. I think she made contact with the ball once. The rest of the time she was picking up sticks and twigs from the field like she was on a nature hike. My husband was getting so frustrated. But now that we committed I want to see her finish the season. She probably won't do soccer again.
My son on the other hand gets too into it and was so hard on himself for every goal opportunity he missed. He was also upset his new team is disorganized and were running all around the place. The coach called it 'jungle ball'. Told him the team would get better.
Sunday my son had baseball assessments which my husband took him to thank goodness and I took my daughter ice skating but she wasn't all that into it so we came home for her to swim with a friend and they had a great time even though the friend was really my son's friend.
My son who has grown up 5 years in 1 year opted to watch the Chargers game with his dad and grandpa at their house!

I watched the 2016 Miss USA pageant by myself at night. Couldn't get anyone to watch it with me.
You can tell the qualifications have changed a lot. THe girls are so much smarter, so much more accomplished and have amazing goals and leadership qualities. Beauty seems to have more taken a back role but that is fine. :)
