The Sky is the Limit

 What I wore to work on Tuesday last week...

Inspiration from this April issue of Elle Magazine:
 I liked the addition of the pastel blue touches with shoes and scarf to the black and white outfit.
Having the pants kick flare style makes it current too...

Top - Tilden
Pants - J Crew
Shoes - Sole Soceity
Scarf - Coach (old)

Chin up princess or the crown slips

 Starting another work week... Now that impressions have been made, I can start expressing my true style a bit more...
Mixing patterns and all...

Inspiration from Boden USA's Catalog from last fall:

These Silk pants are very old from J Crew but they never go out of style... Pairing them with the new trend top with ruffle sleeves and of course animal print calf hair flats...

Top, Pants, Earrings - J Crew
Flats - Sole Society
Sunglasses - Karen Walker

I try to relax on the weekends but knowing what is coming with a work week starting I tried to get ready with shower, hair, laundry, groceries etc...
Now I get up at 5:30 am with no alarm clock, hating life but getting up.
I pack lunch and snack and prep my breakfast to eat in the car... My treat when I get in the office is a nice cup of coffee after I log in which takes forever with various network firewalls and VPN tokens.
The hours fly by as I barely have time to keep up but I am in a groove now and keep on chugging.
And when I get off it is full mommy mode with kids and their activities. And I try, really really try to let go of the house which is according to my standars is a complete mess but I can only focus on priority items at this time... :)

Second star to the right

 What I wore Friday night as we went out to dinner for my mom's birthday just us girls which also included my little daughter!

THe inspiration:

I bought this jumper suit a few years ago to wear at my holiday potluck party. It is very fluid and comfy but I haven't worn it again. With the moto jacket it was totally dinner material...

Jumper, Jacket - Forever 21
Sandals - Steve Madden
Necklace - Baublebar

Even though I was insanely rushing that day and here is a snapshot:
Get up at 5:30 AM, go to work by 7, work until 2, go direct to school with an ice cream scoop in my hand, serve ice cream to 100+ kids as my son's student council town hall meeting.
Take him and his 2 friends and my daughter in the car, hit to the cupcake store to buy cupcakes for my mom's b-day but also feed the kids cupcakes while we are there.
Come back home, Prep the boys sleeping beds and get them ready for a cold night at the baseball game. Wrap presents and write cards and pack cupcakes, champagne, candle and matches. Wait for hubby to come home to take them. Then bath daughter and for some crazy reason decide to do this pinterest hair style on her and get dressed myself and get in an uber to meet my mom and sister and friends for the birthday dinner!

 In her Kate Spade dress and pink booties!

 And how much she loves when I fuss on dressing her... The genes had to go somewhere...

And here are the boys living it up at the Baseball Game....
