What I Wore: Queen Bee

It's no big secret I haven't been blogging much lately.
As it turns out, getting accepted as a vendor to the greatest handmade market of all time isn't the hardest part of the process. Designing a new booth from the ground up, making the booth happen AND filling it with product all while attempting to control the growing pile of laundry, keep a quasi clean house- oh and be a decent mom and wife is the hard part.
Did I mention revolving door out of town guests?
Pop is here currently (my dad) and I'm hoping when he leaves Thursday I can catch up on all the housework, laundry, back log of blog posts, and then there is planning and organizing my girls' birthday party which is happening the 27th...of this month-a week after their birthdays because, well- apparently I'm a bad Mommy.
Enough of the drama- you know the drill. Lindsey started What I Wore Wednesday to keep herself accountable to get dressed each morning. Take time for herself. Be an example to her girls. Then she invited her readers to do the same. I started linking up to make more of an effort. Now I have a whole new fashion perspective! Things I used to look at and say 'Oh that's cute on her- but I could never wear it' now hang in my closet, slide onto my body and make me feel fabulous! 
And now onto the last two sporadic weeks of fashion as I got ready for Queen Bee...and then...the BIG DAY!
Way back, two weeks ago-Wednesday, July 27th- Play time in Tehachapi with Gramm and the girls. Also, day 3 of my 30 day shred-feeling tough. (and the last day since! haha)
 new lavender dress from Gramm-American Eagle, gray sandals-NY&Co
Fabulous new modern pearl necklace-my latest AlloraHandmade in Pacific
Monday, Aug 1, Working at the Preschool-last day of the week for me.
navy ruffled dress, denim bermuda cut offs-American Eagle, Gold shrug, gray flower skinny belt-NY&Co, scarf-Old Navy, flats- gift from Gramm
Tuesday, August 2nd-Picked up Pop at the airport (yes, my parents are married, yes, they travel separately to visit, yes it seems weird-but it totally works)
 this outfit was way cuter when I looked in the mirror this morning
new floral dress from Gramm, gray drapey sweatery (what are these called?!)-American Eagle, wide camel belt-Target, fun wedges-gift from Gramm and Pop
fun purple necklace- gift from Angie
August 6th- Queen Bee Market- my friend, Emily flew in from GA on Thursday night to help with the entire weekend. It was pretty much the greatest and craziest girls weekend in a long time!
 Me and my branchy booth finally set up, changed clothes and ready for the day!
mustard stripe top-new from Gramm-Forever 21, vintage style hipster jeans-American Eagle
 Isn't my friend, Emily adorable?!
belt-American Eagle, shoes- gift from Gramm and Pop, bracelet-NY&Co, Necklace-beautiful AlloraHandmade in Pacific. (I got a million compliments on it all day), stripey Mama Hoot-FairlyFabulous
Were you at the Queen Bee Market? What did you think of my new booth? I'm VERY interested in feedback for future markets.
Sunday, August 7th-Em and I slept in until just before hotel check out! EEk! Then roadtrip-ed it home via a little PCH, little freeway, little u-turning, little random touristy was perfect!
 started the day in a hotel mirror
brand new super cutie knit dress from the Queen Bee-the lovely StacyLynn, new Allorahandmade large felt flower clip- hope she lists then in the shop soon!
Em's new necklace is from Queen Bee, too- MarineParents
 stopped in Ocean Beach for a few silly photos
and lunch in Newport Beach. I added my wide stripe coral cardi-cape from Anthropologie
Monday, August 8th-sad day- took Emily to the airport then home to start catching up on laundry, cleaning, and just being a Mommy and Wife.
Did I mention how much I love my AlloraHandmade Pacific modern pearl necklace?
Gray tee, cut off denim shorts, pink belt-American Eagle at sunset in the desert
Tuesday, August 9th-Tehachapi play time with Pop
 new turquoisey-teal knit skirt-StacyLynn from Queen Bee (Didn't go to Queen Bee? Wishing you had? Have I convinced you to go to the next one yet?!)
white tee-American Eagle, camel belt-Target, red rosies-AlloraHandmade, red wedge flops-JC Penney, fun matching clutch-happy accident- Olive Blue
So many updates to come! Thank you for sticking with me through my crazy time preparing for the Sew Funky Market and Queen Bee Market.
Oh hey- I forgot to tell you- I have a Fairly Fabulous Facebook page now.

I love both Tuesday outfits!! I like the drapey vest thing on the first Tuesday outfit. I have a similar floral dress that I'm thinking of using your outfit as an inspiration. And I really love the simplicity of the 2nd Tuesdays outfit, especially that skirt!
