2 Blog Announcements, Argyle and Bad!! Jeans.



Happy Monday or is it? Vivian hasn't slept around 10.30 PM since almost a month ago and it's almost an hour and a half later and she is still sleeping. So, I am benefiting from that and posting today's Post & Outfit. I really want to do a Brain Dump for you regarding blogging, fashion, why I blog, etc. since I really thought about that today (for some reason), but it has to be left for another day. Before I get to today's outfit though I want to mention a couple of things that have to do with this blog:

1) On May 4th it's My Birthday so FOR FUN and only for Fun I want to do an E-Party, a Blog Party if you will. So I invite all of you - whomever would like to participate - to style an outfit of your choice as if you where to come to My Birthday!! *Hint I Love Dresses*. Also, I created a couple of Fun, Festive Buttons in regards to this below so you can save and use whichever one you like, and post it on your blog the day I run My Special Birthday Post where ALL OF YOU will be My Guests!! That post is being run on May 5th and I will expect your E-Mails until May 2nd. In order to participate all you got to do is Follow My Blog & Link back to my Blog on the day I am running this post. I took this idea from Fun & Fabulous, Crafty & Artistic Megan who did the same type of E-Party over at her blog, back in January. =) I had a lot of fun styling an outfit for her Birthday, then. Here are the buttons below:


2) If you have been blogging since 2012 (no matter what month), contact me as I want to start a new series soon, featuring Newer Bloggers who are passionate about their blogs and what they write and who stay true to their aesthetics. Their blogs can be about anything. It will be in the form of an interview where I will ask the same questions to everyone featured. I am currently working on the interview questions. I will probably run this feature bi-weekly. =) If you are interested let me know.

For any of the above two things you can contact me at: ada.furxhigmail.com. Thank You!! Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Now, on to Today's Outfit. I am not feeling the jeans - let's start with that. They feel like Mom Jeans to me and even-though I am a mom (sometimes it is surreal to say that to myself) I don't like what these stereo-typical jeans mean. These are an older style from Express and I am not sure if they were this big on when I purchased them, or they stretched out, or I am thinner now or all of the above. I do like their color. I may be cropping them and have my taylor fit them too, I haven't decided yet. What do you think of the jeans? However I love this Cardigan - it is Argyle, a pattern I love. I love the pairing of these tops together - it is quite Chic. I will keep the upper top part like this and wear them with a Colorful Pencil Skirt next time.
Gray, 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan w/ a Red & White Argyle Pattern: The Limited.
Dark Red, Sleeveless, Button-Down, Silky Shirt w/Pockets on the Chest: Express.
Light Blue, Wide Jeans: Express.
Ivory/Beige, Faux Leather Belt: Piazza Italia.
Delicate, Gold-Chain Necklace w/ Small Heart-Shaped Pink Topaz Stone: Lord & Taylor.
Drop Earrings w/ Small Circle, Champagne/Pastel Orange Stone: Gifted from my Mother-in-Law.
Periwinkle-Blue, Rectangle, Plastic Hair Clip: Carefour.
Red & White-Trimmed, Leather Loafers: Micci's.


P.S. Today I am linking up with Logan, Carissa, Elena, Molly and Nicole.

  1. A virtual blog birthday party will be so fun! Count me in for sure!

    As far as the jeans, I feel you on that. I just got rid of some older jeans not too long ago that felt like mom jeans to me too. These don't look bad, but they do look a little big. That's not a bad thing, an excuse to buy some new jeans :) The argyle sweater is awesome since it's in Ohio State colors :)

    I just smile everytime I see little Vivian. So cute! Heather

    1. Thanks. I thought it was a good idea since I probably won't celebrate My Birthday much this year. I am looking forward to what you & Kayla choose to wear. =)

      Yes, I may need New Jeans. I will buy some when I am over there. I had no idea my sweater was in Ohio State Colors.

  3. I don't think your jeans are too mom-jeanish at all. The rise is just right and they're fitted. So you're still good! :) Exciting birthday month stuff!

    1. I am not sure on the jeans Alison but Thank You. The rise is OK but they feel loose & unflattering to me. Yes, an exciting Birthday Month indeed. Thanks.

  5. I think cropping and cuffing them would work great!

    1. Thank you. That sounds like what I thought. They fit good in the waist so I don't think I want to get rid of them, just re-style them & re-work them through a taylor.
