Lucky 13 and Mixed Geometry.

Who is Superstitious? Certainly NOT me, I have never been one to go after superstitions. Though one cannot help but feel like 13 is an Unlucky number. However, so far 13 is proving to be a Very Lucky Number for my little family. After all My Beautiful Vivian was born in the year 2013. Today was the 13th of June. Besides the number 13, looks like June is also a lucky month for us, after all it is the month I got married (8 years ago; our anniversary is the 19th). 19 is another lucky number for us, it represents both the Birth-date of Our Daughter and Our Wedding Date. So, why am I talking numbers and days today? Well, because as of today June 13th 2013, my little one (who is not even half a year old yet) is officially an American Citizen. She, clearly is an Albanian Citizen too since Albania is her birth-place. This is the thing that had me worried & frustrated lately because as a whole process took quite a bit and I hate waiting for something that is her birth-right (since her mommy is also American). Needless to say there is such bureaucracy when it comes to these things, no matter which country we are talking about. But enough, it's over and done with. I am just happy she got it and we are just waiting for her passport to arrive now. If everything goes as planned we might be in US before the 4th of July, or at the latest the second week of July. I miss My Mom & Dad and my whole Family soooo much. And they are dying to see the baby, dying... To all of you who have expressed concern about my life lately and to all of you who have prayed that everything goes well ...THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. Vivian & I appreciate it!!

Now let's talk Fashion. I have been drawn to wear a lot of Black+White lately as you have seen and as I have said before. I also love Prints. I love Polka Dots & I like a Fun, Strong Geometric Print. The Dots on this Sweater are sort of Geo too, creating a pattern towards the bottom. I love how the Skirt & Cardigan pair together. I added not 1, not 2 but 3 pops of Color to this Outfit (4, if you count the Red Cocktail Ring). My Stretchy Cotton Tank is Cobalt, the Ballet Flats are Green & the Flower on my hair is Coral. I am glad to wear the Watch, the Flower Clip & the Flats from my April Purchases. What do you think of this Outfit? Also I think today's Title is Fun & Clever. Some Blog Post Titles come so easy and others do not. =) Is it the same for you gals?
