Flying Monkey Jeans, Argyle and a Plane Ride

"I wish I could be on a plane forever,"
Pigtails exclaimed as we drove by the airport.
"Mommy, can we go to Jersey again?"
"Why would you want to go to Jersey?"
Princess Sparkles interjected.
"And what's Jersey anyway?  It's New Jersey.  I want to go to Hawaii."
Sounds good to me (except for the part about
being on a plane forever with 3 kids!)

SKINNY JEANS - Flying Monkey
BRACELET - Downtown LA
FUR SUEDE BOOTIES - Linea Paolo (thrifted)
HAT - Shop With A Mission (formerly Heavenly Treasures)

NAVY BOOTIES - Rag and Bone

Here are a few outfits I've worn recently.  In the first, the sweater was a sale purchase from the Loft last year, along with my favorite Flying Monkey jeans, a Shop With A Mission hat and some thrifted Linea Paolo booties.  My sister bought me the cute crossbody purse from Hong Kong.  The second outfit is a thrifted olive suede skirt from my mom, an argyle sweater from Target and my navy Rag and Bone boots.

Princess Sparkles, Bucket and Pigtails - "Flying Superheros"

I love writing, but the last few months I've been doing it a lot, thanks to a couple freelance jobs.  It's made it challenging to keep up with the blog.  Maybe I need a vacation to Jersey, or better yet, Hawaii!  Doesn't really matter, as long as the plane ride doesn't take forever.

Hey, great seeing you and the kiddos. You look great as always and the hat needs to be in my collection.

Congratulations on the writing jobs and not to worry about us...we are still here for you.

the thought of being on a plane forever, with or without kids, is not a good one! haha

I hate flying! That would be my nightmare. But I think I would be ok if I got to go to Hawaii out of it! I love your second outfit so much!

Ha, your children are so funny!! Sparkles looks VERY visible in that first shot- love the combo of bee socks and purple with polka dots!!!
Loving your hat- I wore one similar in a recent post AND that argyle jumper!
Re the plane journey- rather her than me- good luck with that one, should the aforementioned journey happen!X

Maiken said...

your kids sure have a great sense of humour ;) but being on a plane forever? my longest has been around 4 hours that actually seemed like forever! :D anyway, I love your first look. it's a gorgeous picture of you and the outfit looks like something I would wear right now in the middle of this freezing winter (I would add a winter jacket, of course!).

I love flying. I will never forget flying cross country and fling over the great lakes and Chicago and being able to see the whole thing! Love the sweater.
