OOTD: J.Crew Maritime Blazer

I came home today feeling completely exhausted but hopeful since it's a 3-day weekend. Having white skirt and clean nautical striped blazer on did help pick up the mood a bit.  When I came home, kids and husband had a wrapped box with a bow in their hands. "Happy early Birthday!" they said. I was puzzled. Birthday? That's more than 2 months away! What could they possibly have gotten me now? And I don't need anything!   Anyone care to guess?

Pictures were taken after a long day of work. The face looks tired, and the skirt wrinkled. But hey the blazer stays clean and neat. Thanks so much Jean for tweeting and blogging about this blazer. I truly love it to pieces. One of my favorite purchases this season.

Happy Wednesday! Two days left to a long weekend, which is exactly what I need. The whole family has been sick - very nasty cold.  The worst case is Tristan, who has missed school for 3 days already and still carrying a fever.

Jasmine will be starting her braces this summer and is looking forward to it. I'm not sure if she understands how painful it's going to be. She has a strong case of overbite, and crowding, so you can imagine how messed up her teeth now look. She can't wait to have it fixed. Looking at the x-rays and pictures with the orthodontist today, I couldn't help but admire their occupation. What a difference they'll make for kids who otherwise would not only have a self image issue, but health issue as well!  "Really? You can fix that?" was what I was thinking the whole time looking at the x-ray.

Happy Mother's Day!

As I aged, I noticed that I paid less and less attention to holidays. They are still celebrated, but with less fanfare. I usually get flowers but this year I got a botanical garden from the husband. He took me to the mall yesterday and picked up this J.Crew Liberty Perfect Shirt in Tresco Floral for me (last day for 30% off sale items with code SUNSHINE). The colors are vivid, the  super high thread count cotton is extremely soft to the touch and has a silky feel to it, the fit is perfect.  It picks up a dreary rainy day easily and can be paired with just about any color on the shirt. Thank you, Bryan. 

How do you celebrate Mother's Day? What did you wear for this occasion?
Me: You need to be lower.. (commenting on the fact that he is standing tall and straight when taking this picture)
Husband: Sometime people like to see what you look like from the real angle.

Happy Friday! So glad it's finally weekend! We had some crazy thunderstorms and pouring rain in the past few days. Hopefully weather will take a nicer turn soon. Weekend will not be a wash out, but plenty of rain in the forecast. Guess I could use it for some house work. :)

A summer dress in vibrant color and super light silk material is a must have in every girl's wardrobe. I got this Trina Turk for Banana Republic Crazy Botanical Dress last year (see last year's post here).  Even though the number of times that I wore it wasn't much, it continued to be the eye candy in my closet - the vibrant color picks up any mood, especially in the winter.

Navy, Green, and Camel

Recently I have been drawn to the color navy more than ever. It's as classy as black, but less serious.  It's easy to pair with other colors. It's pleasing to the eyes. I wore this outfit last week to work but didn't get a chance to post till now. The wool mini is a J.Crew classic and I scored it brand new from ebay for only $20.50.  I am not an avid ebayer in general.  I find the experience mostly a timer sucker.  However an occasional score like this is very rewarding.
Outfit Details
J.Crew factory silk blouse
J.Crew mini (size 00, size 00,  limited sizes still available online here)
J.crew Edie purse (various colors here)
Theory Kanya L Rowdy leather jacket
Ann Taylor pumps (in blue and pink here)

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
