chew on this.

thank you all for the birthday wishes for mini-he.
the celebration continued on sunday with the rest of the family. more jumping and basketball...his two favorite things.
oh, and a lot of eating.
surrounded by all the colorful balloons and carnival-themed decorations, i was inspired to throw on some bright colors. the latest goods from a recent f21 run. i haven't been too thrilled with their stuff recently, but i went for color and came home with color...in stripe formation. after looking at the pictures, it kinda reminded me of fruit stripe gum.

unfortunately, all that fun caught up with me. went to bed last night feeling a bit stuffy and feverish. 

pardon the majorly overexposed photos. must have been all the bright colors i was wearing...not my camera skills, haha.

(tank & cardi, f21; denim shorts, store in l.a.)

  21. Very citrusy colors. I like it with the silver wedges and the cross necklace. F21 is a hit and miss. I do much better shopping on line from their site than in store.
    These are cute though.
