Saturday - Soccer Game and Assorted Errands. Crazy morning with the rain and the bright glare. How can you not feel like a total idiot wearing sunglasses while sitting under an umbrella? I mean, clearly it's not a parasol...
Wearing Today - 05/02/09 by HeidiGblog featuring Lilly Pulitzer jeans
The earrings are actually these at right, which were made from my grandfather's cuff links (those are his initials, ENH). My dad had it done after he passed away, 1 pair of earrings for me, and 1 pair for my sister. (And now that they are online, I can clip them for Polyvore, yay.) They are truly unique and bring back memories when I wear them. I thought it was such a creative idea.
No IRL pic since, I just never got to it, and oh yeah, you've seen the outfit, but it did look fantastic with the fireball necklace doesn't everything?...which I wore all day on Sunday, too, but more on that below.
Remember this Polyvore set? Well, that's what I actually wore on Saturday night when we had friends over for dinner.
To Be Worn - 05/01/09 by HeidiGblog featuring Old Navy tank tops
I definitely needed to change before guests since my jeans knee was still muddy from the spill on the wet grassy hill at soccer and it was getting warmer, so I shed the sweater and wait, I had the perfect outfit that I hadn't even worn yet. Yay!! The tags are officially off the J Crew beaded shore tunic and it is in rotation. I like it with the jeans, but I also really want to try with some light khaki pants.
The rain ended up stopping (a pleasant surprise) and it cleared up enough to hang out in the backyard and roast marshmallows. Of course, it was a little less fun after E got second degree burns on her lips for a rogue roasted marshmallow, but several cold wet compresses, 2 calls to the nurses line, and some ibuprofen, and she was ok. Because she is doing ok, it's kind of a funny story. (Although not nearly as hilarious at KatyO's face plant on the bathroom floor story here. If you don't read her blog, you should because she's really funny and so lovely.) The doctor called to check in on E again this morning. (Thank you, Dr. Granger!) You should have seen the email I sent to her teacher this morning. Best Mom Ever Award, here I come. Maybe I'll get an invitation from that Long Island Moms groups that gave Dina Lohan an award.
So here's today's Polyvore set:
Wearing Today - 5/3/09 by HeidiGblog featuring Forzieri earrings
It was positively pouring this morning before church. Lots of motivation to sit at home in sweats. But 1st Sunday of the month, and my turn to be a Lector, so off we went. And surprisingly, Emma was good to go and happy, so the kiddies came too! Later, sitting in church and looking out the window, I decided that the rain was a blessing. Everything is so green outside and it was 60 degrees and raining, not 40 degrees and raining. Big, large, huge difference. So I'll take that.
But it was definitely a good day to pull out the spring-colored cashmere. Navy cashmere femme sweater with white jeans - which i have been dying to pair it with since I got that sweater. And the fireball necklace, of course, with the Dina hoops. I wanted to wear the Joley flats with this, and they would have been so fab, but it was just too wet and I'm too wimpy. So brushed gold Target flats it was. But I did pull out the fab J Crew umbrella, of course.
After church, swapping tops/bottoms for a little more warmth, because I believe we have established that I am a wimp and always cold. Bad combination. So swapped out the navy sweater for the green cashmere long sleeve tee (Polyvore doesn't have the right color) and then dark jeans because it was so rainy and muddy and I'm not always that stupid....and then a big comfy pair of gray fleece socks. But of course, fireball necklace & Dina hoops stayed on so I had a little sparkle. It's not the most fabulous outfit, but it beats crummy old sweats.
Did I mention my 2 hour nap on Sunday afternoon? That may have been the best part of the day. Thank you, hubby! It's 9:00 pm, all the homework is done, kids are asleep, life is good. Ok, I think I am ready to face the week. Hope you all have a good start on your week tomorrow!!
