Hi all! I had to take a break from handbag month last week, because I was out of town. We went skiing, ice skating and tubing with the kids. They loved it. DS2 loved tubing and kept saying "Whee!" all the way down. DS1 learned how to ice skate for the first time. And 8 year old DD and 5 year old DS1 are skiing black diamonds already--they are way better than their parents! They were even going down full tilt down the ski jumps. DS2 can't wait to start skiing when he turns 3 next month.
So back to my challenge of trying to wear all of my handbags...These two dresses are very similar, with blue and green and white bubbles. They remind me of my favorite drink...lime seltzer water. Both also have keyhole necklines. I like them both though, so they're both staying. The first one I got at TJ Maxx for 20 bucks...I get compliments on it every time I wear it. The second one is a Mad Men Banana Republic dress...people like that one a lot too. I bought a matching BR clutch and bracelet to go with the dress. However, clutches are nearly useless for me...I can never fit everything I need in it. So I bought a green and blue satchel from Kate Spade on eBay that works nicely. I can't seem to get rid of the clutch though...it matches the dress exactly and I'm a total sucker for matching accessories.
When I picked DD up from school she had a pretty "ribbon" in her ponytail. Upon closer inspection I discovered she had placed a Kleenex tissue in her hair to look like a ribbon. Very cute and creative!
