Mad Men...and Women!

Dress: Milly, (Gift from hubs last year)

It's been crazy lately. Getting the kids back into school and trying to get used to our new routine has been bananas! Last night we were able to get out of routine and into character at the Imperial Symphony Orchestra's Music & Martinis! I was so thrilled they chose a Mad Men theme! One of my close friends is now the Executive Director and she called on me to work some PR magic! I had fun running the Facebook campaign and working with the local media to promote the event. My reward? An evening playing dress up with my husband, friends, and girlfriends! A GREAT night indeed! Why did we stop dressing up? I mean wouldn't it be more fun if we always dressed up like they did?? I thinks so!

Snake Pants-Oh My!

Feeling funky on my back to work day Monday, I sported these snake skin jeans by Current Elliott (a clearance steal of coarse!) My first pair of print jeans, and I am in love! I hope you all are having a great mid week! XO

Back to Work Hair Cut

Hair: Jen, Liquid Hair
So sorry for my absence of posts lately. The good news is the summer is coming to an end, and my regular schedule will return. I have many pictures to share from Palm Beach, and will do so as soon as I drop 4 children off at school next week!  I decided I needed a back to work hair cut since the kids were all getting back to school cuts! I am really excited about a change. If you have short hair, you understand just how boring it can become. I think I am going to like this one! :) Have a GREAT rest of the week!!

The birthday mermaid

For preschool graduation my daughter had to tell us what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her answer: a mermaid. No question what the party theme would be this year! I LOVE parties! I love planning, cooking, preparing, decorating, hosting.....I love it all. Pinterest has made party planning even more exciting for me with loads of cool ideas and DIYs. Kennedy hand picked shells at the beach and we made shell necklaces as a giveaway, I made the cupcakes and a new icing which is now my favorite! The best part was that she loved every minute of it, and her friends had an absolute blast!!!

Simply Stated

Top: Banana Republic. Shorts: Loft, Flops: J. Crew, Bag: Coach

Tank tops, shorts, and flip flops have become my go to uniform this summer! I love adding a bright colored bag to dress up this simple little look. What are your favorite ways to jazz up shorts and a tank?
