Green and Blue Jewels.

I have done color-blocking a lot this summer and I quite like it. This outfit features bolder, brighter colors, jewel tones if you will. Once again I am in an A-line skirt, my body seems to love them this summer. They are flirty, girly & cute. These little silk, thong sandals features the same jewel colors as my skirt and top. As if this outfit wasn't bright enough, I added a Purplish-Magenta skinny belt and a Bright Yellow bracelet.

Hi All. Middle of the week is here and so far it has been a good work week for me. The dropping temperatures and rain came and went (too fast, if you ask me) and it is back to scorching high temps, today. Here I was hoping I might have to break a cardigan today and actually be able to breathe normally as I walk outside, but no such luck.

I have told you girls I take most of my photos at work. If you see plain white walls, plain gray carpeted floors and bright-lit ceilings, those are the environments of my office or the office next to mine (of my boss and co-worker). However, there are lots of beautiful areas to take photos in the main part of my work-place: the bookstore. I avoid the actual large room known as the bookstore because there are usually shoppers and readers, but this particular Saturday I was able to sneak a few pics. Also, don't you love it when my nails are not super-short, brittle, broken and ugly-looking, as they usually are (since I bite the hell out of them)?! I do. I had to get my nails done. I was going to a wedding and that's what pushed me but seriously they came out so cute. They are a very light pink with a darker sparkly pink on the tips, ala French Nails. Last but not least I love this dress. Wish it was a couple inches taller but for a quick, Saturday at work it was just fine. The belt added a nice touch to the dress since it's a bubble style and all.
