Au Naturel

 Yesterday and today, I had laid back days and decided to be cozy and comfy with some kika Paprika legging combo outfits...

This was yesterday's combo. Cocoa leggings and tunic top with a kiwi maxi cardigan and flat boots...

'Alexis' tunic tank top in cocoa by kikaPaprika - 
Leggings in last season brown by kikaPaprika (you can get them to match in this season) - 
Necklace - Park Lane
Boots - Steve Madden

 I liked the simplicity of this white, red and navy combination. This top is such a cool easy to wear top. It was delayed in production so happy to finally have it in the collection....

Had a super cute leprechaun hunt at my daughter's pre-school today. She was sooo into it and totally believed it. Now she tells everyone how she has to wear green to not get pinched.
After school I attempted to get my nails done with her which was not easy as she kept falling off all the chairs on wheels and had no interest in the ipad I took with us. But we managed. Then it was off to pick up my son and his friend to take them to t-ball practice then home to pack them up to send them off to my mom's. Then emptied the car of car seats and took it for a wash. 
Realizing we didn't have the kids and didn't have to wait until 8 pm to exercise, my hubby and I did the 1.5 hour workout first then treated ourselves to dinner out afterwards.
Tomorrow is a big day driving up to Palm Springs to watch the Indian Wells tennis tournament! A first for me.

Matching in yellow jeans

 Well, sorry for the long absence this weekend as we had my husband's grandparents visiting us there was no time log in at all. I also failed to take my outfit photos on Saturday and Sunday but actually did dress up blog worthy. Oh well... This is what I wore today (Monday). And I will also post what I wore last Friday which I never got to post...

Today's outfit was inspired by this Magazine photo:

A simple combo but allowed me to remix these yellow jeans and debut my new structured purse from shoedazzle!

 The handmade necklaces from craft fair bazaar in Turkey 3 years ago....
 Don't you just LOVE this bag? It also comes in black and brown but I loved this tan and white version. And it is sooo roomy and due to structured shape so easy to find everything in it.

So, at this point I have to tell you about the big incident that occurred this weekend:
MY DAUGHTER BUTCHERED HER HAIR with her brother's craft scissors within 10 minutes while my husband was having dinner with the grandparents downstairs while I was at my book club meeting with the girls. I was devastated. I know there are so many worse things but trust me when it happens to you, you just can't help this feeling. All her beautiful 'golden' hair as she called it gone. And not just gone just butchered beyond repair. The only way to repair it would have been going with a pixie cut but I wasn't ready for that so we are going to be in this awkward 'bob' cut for a while.

But look how cute she posed like me as we dressed alike today!
 You can't teach to pose like this. This is pure inheritance I have to say! :)

 The inspiration for this comfy combo was this photo:
I decided to add the mustard tote for 'pop' factor...
 This babydoll top is actually short sleeved so I added my kika paprika long sleeve cotton top underneath to layer....

 Love the pearl and spike headband. Currently I can't locate this in the house though. Bumming me out...

 She took out so much in the front and the sides and even some from the back on top layer that we had to cut off the mullet she left....
 Look how bad the front is. This is how it looks with no hair accessories. You can be assured that she will be wearing a lot of accessories from now on....

To kill a rainy and cold Saturday afternoon after the hair cut we went to an indoor play area with the grandparents...

They even found a game they could play and Nana won the kids over 500 tickets playing wheel of fortune!

Saturday night took them out to Joe's Crab Shack ocean front....

Aren't they the most adorable grandparents ever? He is 93 and she is 91!

Monday night we were at my mom and stepdad's house...

Every night after the kids went to bed we stayed up until midnight playing 'polish rummy' with them while Grandpa sipped on highballs! :)

This morning saying 'good bye' so melancholy!

Making the most of the funky hair do.... I discovered I can add her single large barrettes on plain headbands....
