Animal Print and a Punch of Royal Blue.

OMG I have had a crappy work day today. I had a ton of work to do and a lot of it isn't even part of my job. Good thing I got it a little easier this last hour or so. And towards the end, I put on some music from Morandi to put me in a good mood. How was your Hump Day for you guys?

Well, before I leave my office tonight, I figured I should share a second outfit for today since I am so behind with posting outfits and all. =) I have worn this tank and the other one like it, in Turquoise, several times this summer. They are light, breezy, dressy enough for me to wear to work, not very fitted and I also like the tiny pocket by the chest. However, this skirt hasn't made an appearance in my clothing all summer, until now. It is sort of a cool Snake Print. I am not sure if it's exactly a snake print but I would put it in the family of animal prints, once again. Oh and again it's below the knee and it's also silk. You all know by now I own a ton of skirts this style and I own a ton of silk pieces. I adeed some coral blue accessories here and I was good to go. It sucks that one of the Royal Blue silk cloth straps of this necklace broke (where you attach it to the lobster clasp). It was longer and I much prefered it in the longer length. I need to try fixing it myself. The necklace is hand-made. Those are some Russian Glass Beads.

Colorblocked Wrap Dress.

Hello All and Happy Wednesday!! It is almost noon and I got to start getting ready for work, here, soon, but I have a few minutes from home and decided to post an outfit, for now. Meanwhile my TV is turned on to a daily TV show where they are talking about taking care of your hair, especially since it has gotten so much damage, tear and wear out of the hot months of the summer. Thank God my hair in general is good and it doesn't require a lot of High Maintenance. On the flip side, I am not good about styling my hair either. But it's a good thing that when you have long hair, you can get away with simple buns, ponytails or just brush it back and add a cute headband and you are set to go. =)

The dress I am wearing today I have had for several years. It's a really light cotton knit, such a comfortable and easy material to wear for summer. I wore it once towards June but forgot to photograph it and then one day my sister-in-law stopped by and borrowed 3 dresses from me and this was one of them. She loved it. It fit her better than me, since she is more curvy and a little bigger. I finally got it back for her and figured it would be a great dress for me to wear now that I have a baby bump. It has a very comfortable flowing skirt after all. I love the mix of the two different greens (one is more teal) with  the brown. These are great colors to wear for Fall too, so I will be wearing this dress come Fall as well. I paired it with a periwinkle/purple tank underneath (it needs a layering piece since it's really open on top). Ohhh and I am not wearing any makeup in these photos. Especially during the hot month of August, I have gone makeup-free a lot of times. Another thing missing here is accessories. When it is 90 degrees out, you want to be as comfy as possible.
