Black with Specles of Red Roses and Some Gold.

I present you outfit number two for today, worn on a Sunday to work. On the first photo - in case you are wondering - I am just holding the clear plastic holder of my business cards LOL, nothing special or fashionable. Anyway, I have mentioned somewhere that I love girly tops that tie at the neck and this is no exception. I own several though most of them are solid colors. I like the antique-looking red roses on this one and it even has tiny, sparkly gold metallic buttons. My earrings, bracelet and of course super-sparkly shoes, also show more gold. The shoes need to be worn in a little bit more though. They are plastic and they stretch but this was my first time wearing them and they weren't too comfortable though not too bad at all. Because of their style and color they feel and look like so much dressier than they actually are.

What did you do today? It continues to be insanely hot in my area. It sucks. What are the temperatures where you live at? On a positive note, I am feeling a lot better today, though my nose is still congested and I have a slight cold, still.

Mint and Seafoam Pastels for Fashion Challenge: Day 5.

I finally bring you the last and final day of the Fashion Challenge I followed last week. The choice was between Pastels or Neons. Both of these are beautiful, summery colors yet so different. The first group is a soft, delicate groupe of colors that feel like a Spring Breeze and the second group is a bright, highlighter-type of colors that will definitely get you noticed. While I own both types of colors, even-thought it was Friday and my Work Dress Code is a little bit more relaxed, I went for Pastels. Plus this top and this skirt were a Match Made in Heaven, together. They couldn't pair better if the same designer created them. I also love stripes. This scalloped, uneven skirt offers zig-zag stripes in other shades of pastel that match the seafoam/mint green background color of the fabric. I also love the girly, delicate, lace-like sleeves of the top.

I will be back later tonight with a different OOTD. Take Care.
