Capris again ... with grey lace and a birthday

The birthday boy and I

The birthday boy, the lil guy and I
My older son Jarod turned 14 today.  I am quite amazed that time has passed so quickly.  Jarod was a challenge for me as a young boy ... he tends to live in his own world at times and I battled to relate to him.  But as he has matured, he has grown in to such a gentle, caring soul with an rather interesting sense of humour.  He seems to float through the issues thanks to anger management training.  He loves to write stories and cook and bake.  I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he became a chef.

Red capris with grey lace top
Pants : Woolworths
Tank : Truworths
Top : Pick 'n Pay - Brand : Cherokee
Shoes : Truworths
Bangles and beads - don't remember

As you can tell, I'm hooked on these capris. 

Todays pair I paired with a grey tank and a grey lace top over.  Kept it all fairly minimal and added alittle excitement with my leopard print kitten heels.

We handed over the goods our office collected for Toy Run today - 8 big boxes all filled up.  Schatz is on his way to the end venue with them. 

Tonight we're having my sisters over for dessert to celebrate Jazz's birthday and tomorrow I have some errands to run, then Sunday is Toy Run and Brads 2nd birthday - all in all, a busy few days.

Thanks for visiting ... catch y'all again real soon.


  1. Looking fabulous! I thought you had plaits on the first photo when I took a quick glance!


  2. I love those capris on you, and the lace top and animal print heels are just perfect. You've got some good-lookin' menfolk there, too :)

  3. Your outfit looks nice on the photos but in real life it looked fabulous. I LOVE the lace top and the shoes looked stunning.

    Jarod is really growing into an intersting young man. Thanks for a lovely evening.

  4. The grey lace top is so feminine and pretty.

    Handsome young boys!

  5. Our little ones at the Mission is also off to the Toy Run today to be the lucky recipients of their first presents for this year;-)

    You are looking wonderful and I need to get to Woolies for some capri's . I wish I liked shopping more...I loath going to the malls.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
