too cool for school.

it doesn't matter how cool you are...
you're not as cool as their friends.
as we gathered in front of the water park entrance for mini-she's field trip, six of her friends wanted to be in my group because i was "the coolest mom".
i was the parent to be with.
we talked about all the rides we would ride and
how much fun we would have together.
we headed to our designated home base area, put our bags down, and i hear the teacher say to the kids, "you may go in groups of four without a chaperone."
the kids ran off so fast...before i even had a chance to say, "wait for me!"
so there i stood. alone.

these pants go against the grain of my usual
flares and floor dragging lengths.
and, to be honest, i felt uncomfortably short and wide in them.
i tried to "fix" them by throwing on a basic white tee and super high heels. can't say i'll be wearing these again,
but at least i tried them.

(pants & satchel, urban outfitters; tee, miley cyrus x max azria; shoes, victoria's secret)

some of you have been asking for feedback on
the e.l.f. products i recently purchased.
i finally had a chance to try out
this e.l.f. waterproof eyeliner pen.
eyeliner is key for my single asian eyelids.
while i've never had any luck with liquid liners before,
i was pleasantly surprised with this one.
the tip was slightly dry (possibly because it was the first use), making the application really easy and mess-free. the best part about it, compared to my usual pencil liners, is that it looks just as fabulous now, at 5pm, as it did at 7am this morning when i first applied it. no touch-ups needed.
and for one dollar, i'm sold.

e.l.f. waterproof eyeliner pen in black, #7303

  4. That is the same eyeliner I use and was telling you that it rocks and I suck with eyeliners.
    This outfit is very simple chic. I assume it wasn't the outfit you went on the field trip in? At least not the shoes! :)
    That is too funny about the girls. I know the time they don't want us is going to come so soon that I keep telling myself to cherish the times when they are wrapped around your leg and you are dreaming of space! :)

  7. I love that feather necklace! It's something I've never ever seen before! And I love how you've cuffed those trousers. Lovely with the heels!

    Oh man, those ELF eyeliners are fantabulous! The only problem is, I have to order them online since my Target doesn't carry them.

  18. I think you look great in the trousers, but I know what you mean, if you feel uncomfortable in something it doesn't matter how many people say you look fab there's no point wearing something you feel uncomfortable in.

  28. I'm not surprised they said that at all! In fact, the only mom who would be cooler to me is- well, my own mom! I'm sort of reminded of mean girls with Amy Poehler's character "I'm a cool mom!" haha

  49. I feel the same way about cropped pants. Well, I dislike wearing pants in general but hey. I'm VERY impressed you wore those shoes to the water park with little girls to look after!

    When I was in 6th grade, my mother had to watch my two friends and I on our school's trip to the water park. I remember a fanny pack and sneakers haha... You definitely are a styling mama, no wonder everybody wanted to be in your group.
