OOTD: Pastel Love

Today was an errand running day. My husband was off today so it was super nice having an extra pair of hands to help out...gotta take it while I can! The day started out with dropping my son (#1) off at school, then I hit the treadmill for a 4 mile run while hubs took #2 to preschool with #3 in tow, showered, met with the roofer who came to fix my leaky roof, went to the UPS store to send a few things, picked up husband's shirt at the cleaners, dropped my husband's car off at Jiffy Lube for an oil change, picked up #2 at preschool, ran to Target and Home Depot, went back to Jiffy Lube to pick up the car, came home and vacuumed so hubs could steam clean the family room carpet, picked up #1 from elementary school, took a quick 30 min power nap, went to pizza for dinner for family night, headed to Cold Stone for dessert (YUM!!!) and then came home to do homework with #1, get all three boys bathed and ready for bed, and then said goodnight to my cuties. Phew! I'm tired. Most of my days are busy but this one was non-stop. Hopefully tomorrow will be a little less crazy!

The forecast called for rain today but it looked so nice out so I ran with it (spring colors and open toed-shoes anyone???)

Here's what I wore:

-Polka-dot Tank-Old Navy
-Celosia Cardigan-J Crew (Spring 2010)
-Ultimate Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Anticipation Heels-Anthropologie
-Bangles-Gap Outlet
-Ring-Forever 21

I feel like I've just about represented every single label I like with this outfit in it's entirety...still missing a few I guess. Pretty good mix though!

Speaking of pastel, look what arrived on my doorstep this afternoon:

Can we say LOVE??!!!!!! Yes, it's love for sure. I adore these shoes and can't wait to wear them! I usually wear an 8 1/2 or 9 in shoes and ordered these in an 8 1/2 based on the reviews. The reviews were right on...they fit perfectly. The color is a little deeper than pastel toned actually, which makes them perfect year-round. I absolutely recommend these cute shoes!

Before I sign off I just had to post this pretty little thing I came across tonight at Anthropologie:

Hello cute skirt...wanna be mine? Pretty please??? =)

Have a great day!


  1. Busy busy! Can totally relate to the chaos of kid's schedules! Mine are young as well and I keep bracing myself for what's ahead. Saw this color combo on Anjali yesterday and love it! Great pairing. Beautiful shoes! And so versatile too.

    The skirt is to die for pretty!

  2. You look so cute for your busy day. You sounded like me! Running from one thing to another all day. My busiest day of the week is Wednesday.
    Can't wait to see how you pair the shoes.

  3. LOVE this outfit! the colors are so pretty!

  4. I love those pastel shades togehter - so, so pretty! And that Anthro skirt? Should be your reward for working so hard yesterday - phew!

    Ooooh I love those shoes, I wish they'd magically restock them in my size! Can't wait to see them in an OOTD!

  5. I'm in love with this color combo, and everything looks great on you. I'll have to see if I can find a similar combination to recreate it!

    I saw that skirt on Roxy's blog, and it looks gorgeous. I think it's over priced for the material, but on a second cut it could be awesome. It would look great with bubblegum pink!

  6. you look great for your busy day!! And 4 miles on the treadmill to boot! You go girl!

  7. So pretty...I adore that color combination!!

  8. That blue and pink are darling together. And the shoes are to die for.

  9. Crazy day! I love your top 'great minds right?' I am so in love with that skirt too!!! You look so cute all dressed up and girl I am impressed with the running!
