Torquoise in Floral and Plaid.

Good Morning All and Happy Hump Day!! I went to bed kind of late last night (considering I had to wake up real early this morning). As if that wasn't enough, I was awake at least an hour & a half before the alarm clock. Then I started kissing my husband and I woke him up, too. Of course then around 6.30 AM I was super sleepy once again - story of my life. My sleep life has been awful the last month or so. Well, I had laid out an outfit from last night - something I only do every now and then. I made a couple of changes to it from the waist down (switched the boots and added knee-high socks) and even-though I had turned on the heat for half an hour before leaving my bed, it was still real cold in the house -- which made it harder to get up. Don't you hate it when it is one of those mornings?

Happy to report, now a few hours later I am not feeling sleepy and that I am warm in my layered outfit & blazer. Also, I cannot wait to get home today (I switched shifts just so I could be home in late afternoon/evening time). First, we have our custom-made dresser (we built up for our little girl) coming in & being put up today, so I wanted to be home for that. And then, after my husband opened up the tree (so I don't have to bend down and get tired too much) I plan on decorating it today. Since this is my first Christmas that I am pregnant and since I am expecting a little girl (coming in January 2013), I am dedicating this year's Christmas tree 100% to her and I even purchased some special girly ornaments just for her, to put up in our tree. She will completely change our lives and I am so excited as is the happy father. =)

To bring some brightness & color to this rainy, cold day, I present you with a very cozy, layered, cold-weather outfit that is punched up by Turquoise. I love this vivid top, it is a very comfortable cotton stretch with a little cowl-neck & both the color as well as the floral motif, matches the earrings, too. I did a little pattern mixing too between the florals & the plaid (scarf). I must say the best thing my mom bought for me, during my pregnancy is this cardigan with a tie belt. I think I can definitely use it as a long, layering cardigan even when I am not pregnant. I like the simple but cute button detail on the sleeves, too. And I like it that it is between a black & a gray.
