|Monday's Inspiration - Olivia Palermo|
This past weekend we went to a fabulous party my best friend, Cardi, and her family were throwing at her parents' house. Cardi's parents have the most amazing backyard. It has a pool, a golf putting area with sand pits, a huge slide, hills to roll down and a half basketball court. It's like a dream play area for kids and adults alike. Princess Sparkles and Pigtails were indeed in heaven and so were her parents...
That is until Pigtails, after indulging in a gigantic meal of fruit, carne asada and rice, decided to take a ride down the enormous slide with a newly full diaper. I looked on horrified, noticing the streak of poop squishing out and following her down the slide. Yuck! I quickly grabbed her and stopped all other kids from going down the slide, then alerted Camouflage who cleaned up the slide while I cleaned up Pigtails. The slide was probably the cleanest it's ever been after Camo was through with it.
For "Inspiration Monday" the ladies at Two Birds chose a picture of Olivia Palermo. I'm still not quite sure who Olivia Palermo is, but I often see her in my fashion magazines. I didn't exactly have similar pieces so I just went with some short shorts, heels and a flowy top. I bought this top at Loehmanns. It had caught my eye but what sealed the deal was while trying it on in the dressing room another woman came up to me and asked me where I had found it. There's nothing like someone else wanting it to make you buy it up!
I love wearing shorts and heels. It might be one of my favorite looks for going out during the summer (now if only I went out - haha). I love how short shorts and heels can give the illusion of long legs. Long is almost always a good thing...except when it's a slide and your kid has a full diaper.
