So We Meet Again, My Dear Friend...

I think the weekend of naps, wine, homemade sweets and girl talk was just what  I needed to get me over the hump to the end of the school year and part time summer fun begins...

Worn to work Monday, April 23...almost May...wow





Skirt/Blazer-Semantics Nordstrom's/Shoes-Steve Madden/Jewelry-Francesca's, F21, DIY

I was not sure what kid of footwear to pair with this skirt today.  In the colder weather, I usually wear it with tights and boots...in the summer with wedges sandals.  But today was about 45 degrees, so I decided upon bare legs with flat brogues...


Worn to work Friday, April 20




Jeans-Level 99/Sweatshirt-Gap/Shoes-Bass/Jewelry, DIY, Target

Love this sweatshirt... I had been eyeing it at the Gap a few weeks ago.  Then, I almost bought it online with a coupon code, but it would have still been about $35 and I just was not up for paying that much for a light weight sweatshirt.  Last week I stopped into Gap, hoping it would be on sale... There is was, in a rainbow of colors...on sale, plus and additional 30% off...ending up $17.  For that price, I bought two...the other one is a bright melon shade.


I thought I would share a project I have been working on the last few days... black and white candid shots of all the kids at Alex's school.  They are planning to blow them up and mat them to sell at the school auction.  Closeup candid shots of kids...not easy!


I used Alex as my guinea pig...pretty cute!!

Since today is Monday...I am linking up with the Monday Mingle...

Aw, that shot of Alex *is* so cute! I love your eyelet blazer - The Limited has one right now in a taupey shade that I really like but question its versatility - at least until it gets marked down to $50 or less and when and if that happens it shall be mine.

I love your blog's new design. It is new right, or have I just really spaced out lately? My favorite thing about the first outfit is the pretty colors--I love the way the necklace brings out the blue in your skirt!

This spring has flown. I can't believe I'll be meeting our lil' lady bean in less than 2 months! Love that cobalt necklace btw.
