A Cardigan Over a Pinstripped Button-Down.

Hello Beautiful Girls. How has the Fashion World been? I have been A.O.K. though quite sad about what transpired in Albania on May 21st (read my last post). There were 13 lives that this horrible tragedy claimed and even-though most of the 30 injured (all female!!) students are well, there are 3 of them still in very critical condition and I hope and pray that they regain consciousness and get well soon. Please be kind and say a Prayer to God for them!! =) I appreciate it.

Yesterday it was A DAY OF MOURNING for our country of Albania, to mourn the 11 young college students, the gentleman who drove the vehicle and the fiance of one of the girls. I wore black all day (shoes, skirt, tops, earrings and headband). I rarely wear head to toe black but yesterday called for it. I also took a day off from reading or posting anything that had to do with fashion. I didn't take photos either. The last 3 days have been chilly, or rather breezy and I have loved this weather. Yesterday it rained mostly all day throughout our country. I heard that the seas were not tranquile and they had some crazy waves. It seemed like Mother Nature was also in touch with the solemnity of the situation; the weather was mourning the people of Albania and crying inside just like hundreds did.
Anyway, enough bad news. God gave me a reason to wake up this morning, be blessed and feel happy that I have good health, that I woke up next to a man who loves me, that my family and loved ones are all alive and well, that I have shelter over me, that I have food, that I have clothes, that I have a good job, etc. I am back today though and I got an outfit for you, which I hope you will like. And yes, due to the lower temperatures I am back to wearing cardigans or blazers. Mornings and evening are cold, you guys.
