I have my red dress on tonight

 Today's outfit was very simple. I had this inspiration from J Crew but it was more like a reminder than an inspiration that I should wear my red dress I haven't worn in a while…

Dress - Forever 21
Sandals - Steve Madden
Necklace - Shoedazzle
Earrings - Nordstrom Rack

Crazy morning of running errands, volunteering in school then doing bootcamp class.
I managed to prep my morning snack and lunch in the morning and pack bottles and bottles of water before I left. Got home for a quick shower and working on paperwork then got dressed and rushed back to the school to sell Logo Clothes at a Kindergarten event. Then picked up my son back to the house for half hour then out again to baseball practice. It is a crazy coordination of events and people on thursdays where my friend picks up my daughter and I take my son to baseball. May step dad meets me at the field and takes over for my son and I rush back to get my daughter. My parents feed and bath my son and bring him back before bedtime. It is the only way they can do so many sports. :)
My daughter is getting very excited about her upcoming play. We practice her few and short lines every day and she sings and sings her songs. The play: Wizard of Oz. Her role: Munchkin and a Poppie…

Shopping for the Perfect Dress

 Monday's outfit for running errands and shopping….
Inspiration from Pinterest:

Shirt, Pants, Shoes - J Crew
Necklace - Bauble Bar

Volunteered in my daughter's class for the first time. Lots of kids I don't know and it is going to take me a while to learn their names and get to know them.
Afterwards it was raining hard so no work out and met my sister in the mall right away.
My husband and I have a big Gala to attend this Saturday and it is a black tie event. Oddly I do not have black tie dresses! I realized how much I hate hate hate shopping for a specific thing. It really takes the joy out of shopping and you never ever find the perfect thing.
I did find two very dressy dresses but they are not floor length.
I was in search the next day and now am awaiting to barrow form some people to see if their dresses could work.
There are bags and boxes of items in my room with receipts as I don't know which combination I am going to go with. Such a big effort.
