Standing Outside the Fire 

 This was my outfit at work on Tuesday...

Inspiration from this pinterest post:

I could have gone orange red pants but figured red was a little less crazy for work than orange especially when paired with animal print and neon...

 Love these summer booties I got from Nordstrom Rack. Goes great with everything and keeps things modern...

Pants - Boden USA

Busy Bee

 What I wore last Friday to work...

Inspired by Boden's Fall 2013 catalog:

 I like the addition of the red purse but I am carrying a bulky laptop case so no room for a decorative purse...

Flats - TJ Maxx
Sunglasses - Gucci

Since I started working I spent every spare minute I have getting ready for something upcoming. Like cooking the next night's dinner or preparing food to take to work or laundry or shower and for this week it was packing for the upcoming weekend trip. I had to pack wednesday night for the Friday night trip as I had book club Thursday night.
On Friday I asked a friend to pick up my daughter to bring her home and sent my son with another friend to be taken to his baseball practice and picked up by his dad from there. Even for this I had to plan the day before leaving his huge baseball bag and uniform with the mom who will have him.
It takes extremely detailed planning to make it all work.
So Friday, I came straight home from work and showered and changed and loaded the car and packed the cooler just in time for my daughter to get home and showered and changed her and went and picked up our friends for carpool...

More on that to follow...

Controlled Chaos

What I wore last Thursday....

Loosely inspired by this Cabi look from last season:

I  more took the concept of a longer top under a cropped jacket. None of my black shirts were loose long enough for this look so went with the burgundy top instead... Hadn't worn this jacket in ages so it was nice to give it life...

Jacket, Long Necklace - Forever 21
Top, Pants - Kika Paprika
Choker Necklace - Cabi
Booties - Franco Sarta (sp?)

The days are going in a fast forward paste with working for 7 hours then picking up kids and doing their activities and fitting in house stuff in between and trying to get sleep!
My son made all star for baseball once again which of course ramped up our schedule like crazy. Adding 5 two hour practices last week causing me switch out bunch of their other activities around like tennis and swim and then having to send tons of texts between other moms to come up with a carpool schedule so at least one parent drops off and parent picks up.
We all come to the games but practices we don't need to stay. Especially when they are two hours and we all have other kids that have stuff going on.
Needless to say quite exhausted pretty much all the time!
