Light and Breezy Colorblocking.

Since this is post #2 for today (on a Monday I know!?!) I am keeping it short and sweet and moving on to the outfit. This outfit is nice, I did color-blocking using colors that I wouldn't call too bright or pastel, just in the middle. However these photos were taken on a work Sunday after a wedding we were invited to, where we were for 7-8 hours, eating, cheering, listening to music and dancing a lot. You can tell from the photos I was tired after 2.5 hours of sleep. I almost didn't want to take these photos at all but I liked that day's outfit so I made an exception. I am not wearing a drop of makeup either and my hairdo was from the previous night (the wedding) before. It was a great wedding, by the way. =) Also, the camera was not collaborating with me that day so these photos are a little bit blurry, sorry about that.

A Zebra Like No Other.

It is Monday, a new week has just started and I wish and pray it's a great week. First of all I wish it's a week that will not be remembered for Violence and Mass Murders like last week. I wish Joy, Peace, Kindness and Forgiveness to everyone in the world. Secondly, I wish (for me) it's an easy week of work, with no yelling, shouting or bad attitudes around to affect my day and my mood. I hope and pray things get better for me at work and my relationship with my boss improves. Thirdly, I am waiting on the results of a very important blood test this week. I hope that all it's well and good. I will keep you updated on this, on another post. Last but not least I wish and hope for a week with less blazing temperatures and some rain. Mother Nature has got to cooperate and bring us some rain and a drop of temperatures. The weatherman actually says it's supposed to get cooler by the middle of this week and YES it is supposed to rain. However, I'll believe it when I see it. So Happy Monday to All and a Great Week!!

...Moving on to today's outfit, I wam wearing one of the most unique, funkiest dresses I own. This dress with a sweetheart neckline, shaped like a bustier up front yet in a relaxed tank style, with a vertical zipper from the hem to the chest and a little drawstring by the waist, features palettes of a Zebra print in the front and by the hemline, as well as palettes of a funky, Safari print in Black, White & Blue on the sides. The little inserts of black material make the dress more modern-looking. It is definitely a 21-st Century Dress by none other than Armani.
