Sometimes in life when things get too hectic, it's nice to have a break and check out some interesting things you would not normally do. The Bigfoot museum provided a nice summer escape after a whirlwind of obligations. It's small and cramped but oh so cute.

Ever since school ended, my daughter has been in a summer theater workshop. I will start by saying what a positive learning experience it has been for all of the children.
* It is every morning, so you may have to deal with a cranky kid when you wake them up early as if it was a regular school day.
* Although the actual performances are held for only two weekends, they are whole weekends; beginning Thursday nights and ending on Sunday afternoons.
* You will find yourself in the heat one day, just like the sports parents. It starts with standing outside in a line for about an hour because you want to pick a decent seat. You then proceed into the warm theater where you will be seated on hard plastic chairs for two and a half hours. Luckily, my husband and I came prepared with ice packs and water.
I sound like a stage mother, so it's time to relax and remind myself that she is a kid.
The goal is for the kids to learn, stay active and have some fun.
So I will now think twice before I brag to a sports parent how relieved I am that I am a theater parent.
Shirt: Gap cat print from last year.

I recently completed my shoe organization project and ended up donating a lot of old shoes. This opened up a lot of room to organize the way I had planned. Just like my flats, all heels are organized by color. It does not matter the style, the pink mary jane heels will be found with the pink spike heels as an example and the pink flat espadrilles will be next to the pink ballerinas.
Shirt: Jaclyn Smith for Kmart elephant from spring/summer 2013.
Skirt: Cabi denim from Goodwill.
Belt: Target gold/canvas from last year.
Shoes: Talbots leather espadrilles about 4 years old.

I love this old Forever 21 skirt with Roosters. It's so retro and the colors make it perfect for July 4th. For hiking down to the town parade, I opted for the more comfortable Lands End shoes seen below.
I could not resist having my picture taken with this little cute dog at the parade. I asked permission and informed the gentleman that I have a fashion blog. I still get embarrassed by this and all I can think is that I still don't have a clear goal for this blog. I'm far from Rachel Zoe, but I am a mom who loves fashionable things and at the same time, deals with real life situations. Like needing a new septic tank last year.
Skirt: Forever 21. Old.
Shoes: Red Browsabouts from Ross old.
