Jeffrey Campbell Snakeskin Platforms, High Low Skirt and a Backseat Driver

"No red lights!  No red lights!"
Princess Sparkles chanted from the back seat as we drove home from school.
Bucket kept crying everytime we stopped so she wanted me to keep driving.
She even encouraged me to run the light, which I didn't do.
Sometimes it's an entire symphony in the back seat, with Pigtails crying too.
I've learned to tune it out, or at least turn the radio up a bit :)

TURQUOISE TRIBAL DOLMAN TOP- Old Navy, $5
BLACK HIGH LOW MAXI SKIRT - Alternative Apparel (via Anonymous LA)
NECKLACE, RING - Jewelry by Cynde Daniels
SNAKESKIN WOODEN PLATFORM - Jeffrey Campbell (via Urban Outfitters), $39

"Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds - Louise Roe

Purple French Manicure
OPI - Purple with a Purpose, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Lacey Lilac

Thanks to "Inspiration Monday" I decided to wear a skirt and another tribal print top.  I recently did some shopping in the Old Navy clearance section where I got this top for $5 (thanks to 30% extra off clearance)!  I also shopped at Anonymous LA since I won a $50 gift card for blogging about them a few months ago.  I got this comfy high low maxi skirt which I loooooovvve!!!  The skirt is the perfect piece to wear with my Jeffrey Campbell snakeskin wooden block platforms.  I saw the JCs online at Urban Outfitters for $40 (on clearance and with an additional coupon).  At that price I had to snatch them up!

Princess Sparkles makes a wish, "Please make my brother stop crying!"

I've been having some really fun shopping trips lately.  I'm pretty thrifty most of the time, but every once in a while I go a little crazy.  Maybe I need a few shopping "red lights" in my life.  Nah!

I almost got that same shirt from ON - but it looks much better on you. It's so funny how obsessed we both are with tribal right now!

I'm also obsessed with those shoes because they may be the best ever. Ever, I tell you.

oh my holy hotness claire! this outfit is wonderful, i dig the blue, & the nails. dear princess sparkles, i don't like red lights either. boo hoo.

I love the skirt that you chose! Your kids are so funny! But you have to be careful though because if you tell your kids a rule, you have to make sure you ALWAYS follow it or they will call you out the one time you don't do it!!!! One time my friend's son told her to drive faster and she said "it was against the law to go above the speed limit" so he was like "CALL DAD RIGHT NOW HE IS A LAW BREAKER!"

Pour little Bucket. It used to be that I would take my daughters for a drive in part to make them stop crying. Does he have colic?

Kristin said...

Those shoes. Wow! And the high low skirt. I've seen these, but no idea how to pull them off. I must say, you do it very well.

rlutz said...

Those shoes are freaking fantastic!! When the two boys are screaming or crying in the backseat, I have been known to turn up the radio to drowned them out...
