Ruffled Blazer over Sweater Dress and an Update.

Hello everyone and I hope it is a Happy Monday and Great Start to the week for all of you! I want to start today's post by updating you on how I feel. I am still a little sick. My body is still aching and my cough is still very rough, but I no longer have fever and I am a little more rested. Vivian is also still coughing but for the most part her fever is gone too and she is back to being the tiny energizer bunny that she is. My husband (who was also sick) is doing much better and will be going to work today. Vivian & I are on day 6 of medications and antibiotics. We plan on not going out at all at least for a couple more days. So pajamas are perfect for me these days, though it will be business as usual on the blog. It is a good thing I always have so many backed up Outfits. Thank you to all of you who were truly concerned and wrote, some of you even E-Mailed me. Also, Thank you so much on the compliments on my last post wearing My New Red Dress. You definitely put a smile on my face which was necessary considering how I have been feeling.

We decorated our Home for Vivian's Birthday as you know by now, as well as the restaurant where we had her dinner. We kept the balloons at home for a while, since she loves balloons and also when she is being fussy about something, they are good attention-takers I use LOL. So you will see those on some photos when I post my OOTDs, like today. Last time I wore this Dress, I styled it for our Winter's Must Have's with Laura. But I wasn't very happy or felt very creative with the Outfit. It looks like I just threw on some Dark Tights and a Fall-Colored Pashmina Scarf. This time I like it much better paired with my Cascading-Ruffled Blazer - a Favorite of mine out of all my Blazers - and Black Ballerinas. I tried on some Curls again, this time I did them myself using a round brush, my blow-dryer and lots of hair spray. I felt and looked Polished all day. When Vivian and I went out that day we both received many compliments. Of course she looks adorable too. =) She always does! What do you think of our Looks? We sort of match color-wise, don't we?
