Kiwi Origami and Jacquard.

Hello All. Another week has gone by and before we know it August will leave room for September. Hopefully it leaves plenty of room for some rain and much lower temperatures, as well. The African Heat has returned to the Mediterranean countries this week. The temperatures will be 100-105 degrees all week (for the highest). Yikes! Or as I posted in my Facebook status, today: Extreme Heat + Pregnancy = One Hot Mess (literally)!! At least I still got my sense of humor LOL.

Today's outfit may make you crave Kiwi or Green Apples or both. Or perhaps a Corona with a Lime of course. ;-) I love the color, shape and neckline of this top. The ruffles are sort of an origami design. The skirt has a golden-green metallic leopard print in it. It is like a pretty & rich Jacquard. Unfortunately the skirt fit pretty tight around my growing belly so I won't be able to wear it anymore this year, as much as I think it is a great skirt for Fall. I kept the golden theme by wearing sparkly lucite peep-toe ballet flats. And of course my hair had to be in a ponytail due to the heat. I hope you like the results.

  1. Too bad it's so hot outside! We had a really bad heat wave in July and it was awful. I am sure it's not fun being pregnant with the heat index so high.

    Either way, you look really pulled together and that skirt is super fabulous!

    1. Yes. This was from a few days ago when it wasn't as hot, probably 85 degrees or so. But it is back to 95 and higher this week. I will try to stay pulled together but the heat makes it hard. Thanks. =)

  2. Such a pretty look, Ada! The bracelet is lovely with this, too. And you don't even look like the heat is affecting you at all - you look great. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

    1. I love this Kiwi Color Combo too. Plus, looking at it, makes one feel cooler (temperature-wise at least LOL).
