Who Needs Me...I Do!!

Today was Alex's first day of pre-school.  He has been going for 1 1/2 years now, so it is not that big of a deal him going to school.  But, since it was his first day this year, and we made a big deal about Jack's first day, I tried to make him feel special.

 Alex picks out his own clothes...today he wanted his fancy car shirt (he thinks anything with a collar is fancy) and button shorts!


He wanted a first day photo in front of his locker.  a little clingy when we first walked into the room, Alex warmed up quite quickly and soon ran off to find the blocks to build a race track.  Since today was a shorted class day, most of the parents were staying for the two hours...but, I had not planned too...he was totally ok with that.  When it was rug time, he sat down, gave me a kiss and hug and said bye, go to work now.



I have decided, to stay within my budget for my fall wardrobe, I am only going to buy a few key pieces of clothing...about 30% the budget...the rest, I plan to spend on accessories.  I think I can remix my current fall wardrobe and jazz it up with new jewelry, a great pair of black casual boots and i am hunt the hunt for a medium sized burgundy handbag.  The two necklaces I styled today are some of my new fall purchases.  Bought in two different places...H&M and Forever 21...and two different times, I thought they would compliment each other by layering to form more of a bib style.  Another new purchase is the fabulous bow bracelet.

Sounds like the little guy got off to a great start! So exciting! And you are looking ready for the start of a new season as well! That black sweater looks so cozy! I love the idea of investing more in accessories for fall. You can still get some great cooler weather pieces, but accessories definitely stay versatile and current through multiple years and seasons.

I'm going to try the accessory route this fall, too. That bow bracelet is adorable! And so is Alex. I like his "fancy" shirt. :)

I like your budgeting strategy. Keep us posted. This is always hard for me. I think I can do it and then I get frustrated with my wardrobe.

Love this look. Those shoes are fab.
