Plaid, Ruby Red and a French Beret.

Isn't this the MOST ADORABLE Fall Photo of my Baby Girl & I? I love the Jewel Tones and all the Rich Fall Colors, in it. =)

Arghhh it has been a busy Monday. After a long period of enjoying my mom's home-cooked meals and pretty much being a guest over my parents' house in Michigan, it was time for me to be a housewife and cook on my own again. We have had dinner at my in-laws over the last few days since we have been back to Albania. As a matter of fact my husband, his parents & sister were all off last week in order to spend as much time as possible with Vivian (and some with me too), since they had been away from her for 15 weeks. She enjoyed some extra time with them during this past week. Today Daddy was back to work and after Mommy organized most of the un-packed stuff, it was time to cook lunch. What I made is a traditional Albanian dish and I put my own twist to it. I forget to take photos of most of the meals I made. But that wasn't the case today, so don't be shocked to see a recipe or five, in here, soon.

This Outfit was from late October when I took Vivian to an Apple Cider Mill for the very first time, in Michigan of course. Don't we look cozy and warm in our Rich Fall Colors? I must say it was quite chilly that day. We still managed to take lots of photos though. Love the ones taken inside the Mill. What about you? Those are some large pumpkins. I also like how this Layered Outfit came together. It was thrown together on a whim and it ended up looking cute. The Bright yet Fall-forward Cherry/Cranberry Blazer, as well as the Navy French Beret take it up a notch. Otherwise is just a Plaid Top with Leggings and Flats. I know this is super late to add to the Jewel Tones link up from last Tuesday (better late than never) but I figured I should do it even if it is last minute because between the Blue & the Red I got both Blue Topaz & Ruby covered with the Colors I am wearing on top. The Silver Leggings add another jewel aspect, that of Metallics, in this case Silver. And of course, Hats were the 'theme' last week over at Stylin' in St. Louis.
