Tealed-Off and Bow-Tied.

Hello All for the second time today. Ahhh I am so exhausted. I got home from work around 6.05 PM, had some fruit and tried to take a nap at least for an hour to 1.5 hours. I started reading (I am currently reading something really good - but more about this on a different day) and before I knew it I was 60 pages through the book. I was still tired and sleepy but couldn't fall asleep so I woke up around 7.30. It's a good thing I didn't sleep because I really wanted to do a bunch of cleaning today. I have felt so tired and lazy and at times sick, the last 2-3 weeks so our home has been left aside. It's not very big, a 750 square feet Loft-style apartment but you know two people live there so things can be messy if left for a long time. So I took over two hours today to sweep, clean counters, remove clutter, dust and wash the floors real well. The whole apartment is clean now. I gotta work on our bedroom tomorrow. It's not that it is dirty, more disorganized than anything. I know it will take me at least 2 hours there so I left that for tomorrow. I have no time or no power anymore today. By the time I was done it was 9.30 PM. And after this post I am going to call it a night: read a few more pages off my book and fall asleep. =)

After a quick and simple dinner, I am now blogging an OOTD from last week. I love this dark teal silk dress. I like the length of it - falls right at the knee and its empire style. It sort of looks like a Maternity dress but it certainly isn't. It has that nice, flowing A-line shape from under the bust all the way down, nice and loose so I will make sure to wear it at least a couple more times during Fall. I also like the grosgrain ribbon detail on the back. You can see the dress details even better with my hair pulled back. =)

Good Morning Everyone. It is almost 10.00 AM here and I have a few free minutes at work so I figured I should benefit and squeeze in a post, early in the morning. You might get a second post today, in the evening (when I am home), since I have quite a few outfits not posted. Anyways... it continues to be hot here through the day. However early mornings (let's say until 8.30 AM) and later in the evening (passed 8.00 PM) we get a cool breeze. It gets even cooler later in the evening so that's good. At least we can sleep a little easily through the night. Though, truth be told I have my fan on all night, in our bedroom. While I am welcoming the temperature drop, even if it is just early mornings and evenings/nights, it makes it harder to dress for work. By the time I leave work it is so freaking hot that you definitely need short-sleeves, sleeveles, skirts, dresses or shorts on. I think I need to start carrying cardigans or light pull-overs to throw on, in the morning when I go to work or in the evenings.

Today's outfit is sort of Monochromatic. True the skirt is beige and the top is dark green, but the skirt has a small paisley print in a lighter green. These soft cotton T-shirts are so comfortable. I own them in 4 colors, from The Limited. I purchased them last summer. They are a little stretchy too and fit quite nicely over the belly that is growing. It is funny though, with some clothes, you can definitely tell I am pregnant though still little, and with others, not. In this outfit, my belly is quite round for you all to see. Usually with longer tees over my skirts, the shape looks better and the belly comes out more. =)
