shopping and surfing...

I didn't surf, I don't know how haha. But, I was at the beach and a lot of people were kite surfing, I thought that was neat. I went kayaking though, and stopped by a shopping center with our kayaks, got some Starbucks and two books on how to become a millionaire :) the books were on sale, so I'm dubious of their effectiveness. However, I'm in need of reading material and these books were more appealing than a romance novel. Let's see how well they'll work on me. I've started on "Millionaire by Thirty." I'm on the chapter where it talks about budgeting and putting away non preferred debts like the evil credit cards.
My mom wanted to go shopping so I took her to the mall. I just couldn't resist these items so I bought it. :( i'm sure somewhere in those two books where it criticizes impose spending. "sigh" I'm working on this issue of mine.
Necklace: J Crew
Skirt: H&M

I couldn't afford this so I asked my mom to buy it for me. thanks Mama!
wristlet/clutch: Coach

Mom thought these shoes were dangerously high, and wonders why I need so many pairs of shoes.  I can already picture myself wearing them for the fall with some opaque tights.
Shoes: Off broadway Shoes
here is the outfit I made. Top: Forever 21. A note on the skirt is that the material is quite thin, so stick with white or nude color undies. I love how these shoes elongate my legs.

My work is not very formal, so if I pull the skirt a little lower, I can totally wear it to work.

the guys fooling around at the beach. Kite surfers in the background.
Fiance and I love to cook, but he is the better chef. He made this fantastic chicken pasta salad with grilled chicken, spinach,  bow tie pasta, tomatoes, olives, onions, dried cherries (cranberry will work too), cilantro and basil, then toss everything with light caesar salad dressing.
