As if sitting on a leather seat right smack in the middle of summer when it’s 80 degrees out isn’t bad enough, I decided to wear a leather skirt. Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Wednesday! :)

Lately my wardrobe has been over-ruled by all things red. Red shoes, red polishes, red scarves, red handbags and this beautiful red romper. In addition to the scallop lace details delicately connecting the sleeves and sides, the vampy color is the perfect shade of red for the holidays. I think red is supposed to be the color of passion, desire, love & sex-appeal, but when I think of red, I think of rebelling. As in I-want-to-steal-a-bike-and-ride-it-down highway-1 rebelling. Ok, maybe not. But maybe this burst of fearlessness can get me to ride a bicycle without crashing into everyone and everything. It’s pretty terrifying. :(

Speaking of vampy, I’m getting all vamped up for Friday, November 16th. Can you guess the occasion? :D

Flower Bud

There’s something about green and pink that reminds me of a flower bud. So sweet, delicate and refreshing. I love flowers, they are a reminder for us to slow down sometimes and appreciate the beauty all around us…

I heart this Kelly green skirt. It’s one of those colors I love to wear because it can easily transition from Spring to Fall, not to mention the perfect green shade is great for any skin tone. I love the silky soft satin and the over-sized bow details adds a lovely allure of sweet ladylike elegance.

Love this F21 pearl necklace but as you know the quality are not always everlasting and bummer that a few pearls came apart. I have been looking into a really nice quality (yet affordable freshwater pearl set and really love the ones from My Jewelry Box. If you have some recommendations, please do share!

Back when I was in high school some 13 years ago, I used to like to coordinate, A LOT. Yes, I was that girl sitting in front of you in the classroom with the hot pink belt matching the hot pink shoes and the hot pink bag (hey, don’t you judge me :). It was cute then but now I cringed at the thought of a matchy-matchy outfit.

I’ve strayed away from matching bright hues so color blocking was a just the perfect happening that I’m hoping will last forever and ever. Or maybe some 13 years from now, I’ll be matching shoes-belt-bag again….Ha!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by! xo
