Friday Flashback: a Bob, Blue and Casual Layers.

Welcome to another Flashback Friday, Ladies. How is your day going so far? Any plans for the weekend? Today I have not one but two outfits for you. =) These were both from 2007. Early in July of 2007 I chopped off my hair into a cute bob. I actually love a bob haircut and I do think it looks very good on me, but I find it quite high-maintenance as much as I love it on me. Anyway...

The first photo is taken in the afternoon time before we went for a lunch date with my husband to a local, real nice Italian restaurant. The photo was taken in front of our apartment building at the time. (I loved our first apartment as a newlywed couple). I picked a simple, girly & somewhat sexy outfit. I was out on a date with my husband after all. Plus it was very very hot. Every time I can wear a jean skirt, I will wear it. And I own a lot of strapless tops which I do not get to wear enough. The second photo was taken towards the end of October. That beautiful rug behind me belongs to the Shoe Museum in Toronto, Canada. That's where I was, for a weekend, at the time. I must say this is one of my Most Favorite Outfits up to date. I had just started layering and I think I nailed it between the tunic, denim blazer and super cute scarf. Plus this outfit is very much perfect for today in 2013: first I am wearing the color of the moment which is Hunter Green, second I have layered (which is a very stylish thing to do these days) and thirdly I am wearing distressed denim & leggings which are both two trends going strong for 2013. I wish you could see the scarf better. It is quite pretty: white with very thin silver metallic threading (like pinstripes) that go through it.

By the way March 8th is Women's International Day so I want to wish to all of you Ladies in the Blogging Community A HAPPY DAY cause today is a Holiday for us. It is so great being a woman. Especially now that I am a Mom, I feel more privileged and happier than ever. We have the gift of birthing beautiful children, after all. This is definitely the kind of Holiday we celebrate a lot here in Albania. I am expecting a gift from hubby *wink wink*.
