Deep Blue and Deep Red.

TGIF Anyone?! Well, I for one am thankful it is Friday. I leave work @ 5.00 and I should be home by 5.45-6.00. And tomorrow I am OFF (I haven't had a day off in exactly two weeks.) Since I only got 6 hours of sleep last night, I think I will take a nap and then wash my huge pile of dishes. I don't mind washing them by hand, and that's not just because we don't have a dish-washer. In USA, I always had a dish-washer (it's an American thing) but never used it. Sometimes (rarely) my dishes get out of control that we run out of utensils to eat with. But for me it's really a matter of getting to them, cause once I do I don't mind washing away, as disgusting as they may be. It gives me pleasure. Plus, I usually use a moisturizing dishwasher with a good smell (currently it's Pomegranate). I wanted to get them done last night but I got home sort of late (6.15) and was tired so I layed my feet and facebooked and an hour or so later met up my friend who has come to visit from Germany... and later her fiance and sister-in-law. We stayed together for 3 hours over sodas/beer (for him). I don't know when time flew. Then, I went home, made a very healthy salad for husband and I, talked to my mom on the phone for close to an hour and wished my brother Happy Birthday. Finally I read a few pages from my current book and then around 12.35 after midnight I turned off the lights and slept.

So, I love the deep, vivid shades in this outfit. Red & Blue (all blues) are two of my most favorite colors to wear. Really, had I worn white/ivory shoes, this would have been very American. I don't know why I didn't wear this cute button-down shirt all summer? Oh I know why - because I have A TON of clothes!! I love the dart & pleats right in the middle; this same detail is on the outside of each sleeve, too. But I also realize I have to pack this shirt away till next year cause I don't want it to stretch. Also, I love the cascading ruffle over this pencil skirt. Pencil skirts have the slimming part especially from the thighs up, so in case you are wondering, I left the zipper undone, in order for my baby not to suffer inside my belly. I added cute & elegant rhinestone earrings & bracelet and that was it. =)
