Summer Dream Outfit

Denim jackets, wedge sandals and surprise, surprise pleated skirts are back. I remember owning a pleated skirt in navy blue when I was in grade school. If my memory serves me right, it has not made a comeback since then, until now.

Since the skirt is in a bright coral orange color, I would just keep accessories simple and neutral. Cocktail ring included when I would normally go for color.

Best Nudes

Unexpectedly saw this pair of Jessica Simpson shoes and now I am a fan. They are very comfortable, I could run in them. The heels are just the perfect lenght for someone like me who is not used to wearing heels. I have yet to find out who is the distributor here in the UK as I just saw this single pair at TK Maxx. I know nudes are the fad, nude court shoes to be exact (thanks to the Duchess of Cambridgeshire's influence) and I thought I would never jump on the bandwagon but after seeing them and trying them on, I jumped without thinking.

The Princess Bed

It has been the topic of talk for the little girl for the last 3 days. She said, she now wants a princess bed in her playroom. She was like "mommy, there is a space in my playroom for a princess bed. Can you get one for me so I don't have to sleep in your bed?" and I was like, where did that come from? Oh well, my baby is growing up and she now wants her own space. Sad but exciting.

I have been surfing the net for that, a princess bed. Apparently, it has to be pink according to the 3 year old. I have shown to her the photos and most of them were a big NO. Some were tacky and some were classy. I was just so glad that she is like me, she likes the classic princess bed and not the typical ones that is all over the place. Here are the choices I have shown her.

I thought this will give her the wow facto but it didn't.

It's not like I can afford it.

And not this one. She said she doesn't want a car bed.haha.

The reaction to this was "Uhmmm, NO!"

I was hoping she wouldn't say yes to this because this just screams tacky.

Another big NO.

We both wanted this but our old bed which is now in the guest room has steel frame and in the cold weather, the moment my hand brushes the headboard, it is really cold. So despite the classy look of this, it's a no.
We both agreed on this and hopefully we find one like this that is within our budget as things aimed at kids are just ridiculously priced.

And this princess bedroom I so love...
