Rust and Mustard for a Bright Monday.

What a Busy First Monday of the Year!! WOW!! It looks like I have run a marathon today. That is exactly how I feel. That is why I haven't been able to squeeze a post in yet, and it is after 9.00 PM here. =) I had to wake up around 7.30 this morning. I wore very simple pants with a sweatshirt on and left to get a couple of tests & blood work done. So I walked 20 minutes to get there & 20 back. Then, I had to go back to the store where we got our baby's crib because there was a part missing in the box & my husband couldn't put it up. But I took a taxi for that (and back) cause it would have been an hour walk each way. Then I got home, sat for a little, saw an episode of "Dexter" - my favorite show & it was time for me to go pick my test results. So more walking. Then I saw my doctor, gave her the tests' results (all was real well by the way). For some reason it felt much colder outside in the afternoon than early in the morning. It was definitely very windy today. The sun was out but that wind was so cold. Then I got home and just a few minutes later, the owner from the store where we got the bed, arrived with the missing part & missing manual & put together the bed for us (it took him a good 45 minutes because it was all in pieces). Of course, then my husband got home from work & the two of us got down to business and started cleaning, wiping & sanitizing the bed. Then of course I had to dress it up: mattress, bedding, sheets, pillow, fur toys, musical toy, blankets & all that. Then - both tired & hungry - we had an early dinner (early for us) and my husband already went to bed. He was going to read a bit & then fall asleep because he had gone to bed real late last night & woke up early this morning. He was tired - I couldn't blame him. And as I am drinking some freshly-squeezed carrot & orange juice, I am finally getting a post in, today. See I told you I had a full, busy day.

Anyway, I love both Mustard & Burnt Orange and I wore the two different tops in today's outfit during the week of the Fall Challenge (here), a couple of months ago. This time I decided to pair the two colors together. I do like the results. Not the best photos though. I had an off day photo-wise. Also, don't you love it how Gray pretty much goes with anything & everything?! At least I decided that it does. =P
