Denim, Floral and Neon. Plus, Blog Talk and Life.

Saturdays are horrible days for me to blog/share a post, or even read blogs. I have been meaning to write this post since early in the morning, albeit it is very late at night & the Baby just fell asleep (barely). She was being stubborn today and wasn't falling asleep, it took a couple of hours. She is teething so that has something to do with it. On a domestic side of things, I got a lot of cleaning & organizing done today. I am coming to USA very soon (we reserved our tickets, today) so there is a little big of packing involved with that. I only plan on taking Summer clothes for the baby (mostly what she hasn't worn yet) and nothing for me, since a Walking Closet full of clothes is waiting for me to explore, lots of old favorites and new items to re-discover. Of course, I will be doing lots of Shopping there too. Though I have been real bad and blown away my budget both for May & June, especially this month. Case in point, almost everything I am wearing today, and almost everything from my 2 Outfits yesterday, are brand-new items I have purchased this month & you haven't seen all of them yet.

I have seen so many Outfits featuring a Chambray Shirt and/or Dress in Blogland, especially in the last couple of months. But, I didn't (still don't own) a Chambray Shirt. The one you see here is actually a Denim one but the closest thing I have to a Chambray. I thrifted it for 5 Bucks and it is from Esprit. I looked up this exact Shirt online and it is from Fall of last year & retails for $78 so I think I did good. I like the Dark Color & it is a real nice Denim, thick & sturdy. I also own a Chambray-looking Button-Down from Springfield which is the opposite of this, in a very Light Wash & Material. I am still looking to purchase a couple of Chambray Shirts (at least 1 plain & 1 printed) & a Dress. But for now I am loving this one & I had Fun styling it with my new Girly, Chiffon, Green Floral Skirt. The Cognac Belt part of the Skirt is actually the elastic waist with a big Butterfly attached, giving the illusion of a Belt. The Neon Necklace & Bracelet are also New. I have been loving Neon in small doses lately (have added quite a few pieces of Neon Jewelry) and I love a Cute, Notice-me Necklace. This Statement Necklace sure was Beautiful for $10. And, it has been chilly around here lately so the thicker Shirt worked to keep me warm for the evening. Laura & Erin's 4th Week of Trend Spin Link-Up was Chambray, so I am gladly submitting this Fun Outfit to these Super Gorgeous, Super Stylish Ladies. =)

F.Y.I. To say that the next couple of weeks are going to be super busy for me, is quite an understatement. I still have to pack, get ready for a super long flight (with a young baby with me), meet a few people before living & then I will go there exhausted & jet-legged, it will take at least a week to get adjusted to everything. So, I am not sure how daily I will be able to post in this blog. I almost never have time to schedule ahead posts these days, either. Though I do have a couple of Guest Posts alined and I will also continue yesterday's feature with Agnes for our "Moms' Must Have Summer Item" Series. Speaking of that, yesterday's post and the first week of this series was a huge success. I got many compliments on both outfits & not just through the comments, but through my E-Mail, too. So, as much as I like to do "Week's Best Looks", I am not sure I will have a lot of time for it these next few weeks, though we will see. And, on top of that, I have many Outfits un-posted, from what I have worn this month, so I want to share most of them with you. I am sure things will settle down by the end of July. I still plan on visiting my blog & yours as often as I can, during the next couple of weeks. But we all know blogging is time-consuming and for the moment spending time with my family in Albania (before living) is more important. Thank You All for Understanding & Have a Great Weekend!!

  7. I don't have a chambray shirt either - however like you i have a jeans one that serves the purpose.
    Maybe you can pick one up in the US now that you're traveling :)

    1. Yes Lorena, I have seen your Denim one. A Plain Chambray Shirt and a Printed one like in Polka Dot or Anchor is on my To-Buy List. I like shopping much better in US, anyway.
