Burnt Orange Cardi Paired with Classic Colors.

Happy Friday Friends!! To most of you Friday is a Happy Day because that means the weekend has started and you get to spend a couple of days off, both resting, spending time with loved ones and running errands. To me, Fridays are bittersweet because that means yes the weekend is close but I only have to spend one of those days off, the other one I pull off a double shift (13 hours) at work. And, at 8 months pregnant, even-though I mostly sit down at a desk and even have time to blog (while working), it is still tiresome and hectic, long and not fun.

But today, for the first time ever I am Linking Up with Lauren From My Grey Desk. I like that she is so positive on Fridays and is always Thankful for something or several things every Friday. Check Out all the bloggers over there.

So (in no particular order), this Friday I am thankful for:

1. Being thisclose to Sunday - my day Off.
2. Having my entire home decorated for Christmas. It took a while but it is forgiven if you are gone for about 65 hours a week - the time it takes for me to work plus commute there. Add on that, being 8 months pregnant.
3. The first photo on Today's Post. I love it. The little brids I decorated with, make it cuter. I also like how the cardigan matches the Faux Calla Lillies in the big porcelain pot behind me.
4. The tank-top in today's post. It is not Maternity but it is scotton, tretchy and comfortable enough to wear while pregnant. I have another one just like it in Orange & White. My mom purchased both these cute floral tanks from Target. They are the Merona brand. I also like that they are scoop-necks. They will be great for the first few months while I am nursing.
5. Borrowing from my husband's closet. This scarf is his and I have worn it a few times. I like that it is short, in a neutral color that goes with everything and it's a Cashmere blend which keeps my neck real warm.

So, I titled today's post "Burnt Orange Cardi Paired with Classic Colors" because to me Black, White, Gray and Blue Jeans (especially darker blue jeans) are classic colors. I love this Gorgeous Crystal Necklace from White House Black Market. Some of my most beautiful jewelry is from there. If you have never purchased jewelry there, just go in. You will get sucked in from the first piece you wear. I own A TON of their jewelry. I love this particular necklace with the large multi-faceted Oval Stones because it is Ombre. The stones go from Black to Smoke (Gray) to Clear (Glass).
