13 of 30: Silver with Navy and A Birthday!

Before I get on to Today's Outfit I want to take a minute to wish My Beautiful Mother a Happy Birthday. =) She is Stylish too. Look at her Mixing Prints: Striped Cardigan with Polka Dot Jeans.
My Incredible Mom celebrates her birthday today on April 14th. Vivian and I are so Lucky and Blessed to have this lady in our lives who opens her heart with Unconditional Love, every day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Wonderful Mamma from Vivian & I. We  so very much. And we miss you a ton, also...
The photos of my Mom from this post (as you can tell since Vivian looks so little), are 5-6 months old. It has been about 6 months since I haven't seen her. See, I live on Europe and she lives in USA. It is unfortunate that we live so far. But we talk on the phone every day and Skype at least twice a week. This far away distance has made me grow closer to her and appreciate her more each day. She is truly a wonderful human being and a phenomenal mom. I wish to be just as good as a Mom to Vivian as she has been/is to me.

Now let's move on to Lucky #13. I finally wore my Pretty Silky+Silver Blazer which hadn't been worn since my last Corporate Job in US. I paired it with my Nude Lace Tee (also worn for the first time during this challenge) and my Navy+Black, Tuxedo-inspired Skinny Pants. I can see this Outfit working for errands, lunch or even work (as long as your office is pretty relaxed). I am matching my Lavender Earrings to my Lavender Bracelets. And the Stripes of my Bracelet matches the Striped Lining of my Blazer. Talk about little details!? I am loving the Pastels on top with the Dark Colors on the bottom. What about you? Do you own a Silver Blazer? What Colors would you pair it with?
Pros: Very Simple Outfit I threw together. I felt Put-together with such easy pieces. The Blazer definitely dresses it up, too.
Cons: I am not sure my Black Oxfords were the Right Shoes to wear here. Perhaps my Navy/Polka Dots Ballet Flats would have worked better?!
Light Silver, Silk Blazer w/ Pinstriped Silver+Gold Lining: Urban Behaviour.
Nude, Short-Sleeve, Lace Tee w/ Beads on the front: White House Black Market.
Navy Skinny Pants w/ Black Tuxedo Stripes off the Sides: Pull & Bear (New).
Lavender+White, Lucite Beaded Bracelet (set of 2) w/ Stripes+Dots: Borrowed from Sister-in-Law (she has received it as a Gift from me).
Purple, Square, Multi-Faceted Stud Earrings: Bijoux & Accessories.
Silver, Pave Ring w/ tiny Silver Stones & big Square Ruby in the middle: A Local Boutique.
2-in-1 Silver Ring w/ 2 Silver Circle Stones & 1 Oval Cognac Stone: White House Black Market.
Real Gold Wedding Band and Real Gold+Diamond Engagement Ring: From My Husband.
Silk, Baby Pink w/ White Polka Dots Headband: Rossman (Gifted from My Sister-in-Law for My Birthday, last year).
Black, Suede Oxford Shoes: Forever 21.

Also, I am linking with Claire who featured me in this outfit for her Creative Mondays. Thanks so much Claire. Much appreciated, even more so today that it is my Mom's Birthday. =)

And, last but not least, for Day 2 of the Pantone Challenge the Color of the day is Paloma, which is like a Soft, Water-color Gray. Coincidentally I am wearing a similar Color via my Silver/Light Gray Blazer so once again I am linking up with Heidi (and Marissa).

  1. Hi Ada, thank you so much for stopping by!
    I don't wear blazers much myself, but I like your silver one - it's elegant and quirky!
    Happy birthday to your mom. She's so cute with your adorable little daughter! I hope you will be able to visit again soon.

  2. Happy Birthday to your mother! I hope you get to see her soon! I can't imagine how hard it is living so far away! That blazer is so unique, I've never seen anything like it. It looks nice with your pants and I don't think the black oxfords were a bad choice although I bet the flats would have been cute, too!

  3. Purple is such a great color on you, Ada. That's great that you've learned to love and appreciate your mom more thanks to the distance. I feel the same way with mine. We live on the same continent at least, but pretty far apart and only see each other 2x a year. Your mom is lucky to have such a sweet person like you for a daughter. Thanks again for linking up today.
