On the Edge

Good to be back in the midst of home projects and unpacking, dressed up for the busy day on Thursday.

Inspired by  J Crew's February, 2014 catalog:

How do you like the NEW HAIRCUT???
Went a little shorter and edgier for a little while...

Top - TJ Maxx
Skirt - Closet
Earrings - Cookie Lee
Necklace - Ann Taylor LOFT
Booties - Betsey Johnson
Sunglasses - Karen Walker

A huge portion of the day involved our upstairs carpet installation. Which was a major ordeal as we had to move everything on the floor plus the bottom halves of 3 closets. The big furniture was moved by them but all the stuff on each piece had to be moved which is a lot bigger deal that you can imagine. And the closets! Especially mine! As you can imagine a blogger closet it was insane. I filled a huge jacuzzi bath tub with shoe boxes which are only the shoes that do not fit in my shoe rack! Might be a sign of a problem. Now I can't put any of it back without cleansing it first which is taking FOREVER!
In the afternoon went to my daughter's Kindergarten picnic.  There were a lot of families we already know thru my son's class who also have younger siblings so it is going to be fun.
We don't find out which class she is going to be in until the day before so the excitement builds…

Order among Chaos

First post since I have been back to the States.

This was an inspiration from People Style Watch June 2014 issue:

Top - Forever 21
Pants - BCBG (I think. Can't remember now)
Sneakers - Superga
Necklace - Cookie Lee

Well, it is as crazy as it can be. Besides the 6 suitcases I needed to unpack there is all sorts of things going on at the house. My husband surprised us with huge projects he undertook while we are gone around the house. Some are finished but some are not and therefore many more projects are still in the works. Of course being the organization freak that I am, I couldn't just unpack. Everything I wanted to put back I decided to organize the area first. So starting with kids closets of weeding out clothes that are too small or old then continuing to my make-up drawer and vanity it was never ending so much that I had to stop myself to continue these cleansing projects when the kids start school next week.
I am going to declare September my organization month and get the whole house in order! :)

On Tuesday though we had to leave and do a trial class for my daughter so I can sign her up for Fall Rhythmic Gymnastics class and Ballet.

Then on Wednesday had to leave early in the morning for my dr appointment followed by hair appointment, stopping at target to by gymnastics and soccer clothes then to my friend's house to meet her darling newborn twin girls where my daughter had a major problem and had to be cleaned up followed by going to their school for 'sign-up' day and coming home exhausted!

Sunshine Seekers

 Outfit Thursday at our relative's house….

Inspiration from J Crew:

Top - H&M
Shorts - Zara
Sandals - J Crew
Sunglasses - Ray ban

Spent the whole day at our relative's house where there is a pool in the complex. The kids got their pool fix while we chatted away and she cooked homemade 'manti' which is a type of mini ravioli like pasta filled with meat. You eat it with garlic yogurt and tomato sauce on top…. SUper yummy...
