The Royal 19th.

August 19th and it has been 19 months since Princess Vivian has joined our family. She has changed and blessed our lives so much. She makes me smile and laugh every single day!! God Bless Her!! I just wish and hope she continues to live happy and healthy.
So, yeah that explains today's post title. The 19th is for Vivian and Royal is also for Vivian as well as the Colors of our Outfits, since I am wearing Royal Purple and she is wearing Royal Blue.
I wore a Washable Silk Royal Purple Dress which is easy, breezy, fun and makes a statement! It has the racer-back and a big ruffle on the bottom. I carried a Purse in a color that goes - Royal Blue (though it looks almost identical color as the Dress, on the pictures). Both these pieces are from Express and were purchased the same Summer a few years ago. Looks like Silk and the Royal Jewel tones were in that year. I added a pair of Dangly Flower Earrings also in Purple and some Colorful Lucite Bangles. I decided to no longer neglect this Dress which hadn't been worn since last Summer. My Sweet Vivian is wearing a New Dress by Old Navy. It is off-the-shoulder. The Color is between a Royal Blue and a Navy. I must say she looks good in dark colors and jewel tones too, not just in light pinks and pastel lavenders. What do you think of our Royal-Colored Outfits?

None of mommy's accessories are off-limits when it comes to Vivian's favorite things to play with. She loves playing with my jewelry, especially bracelets which she puts on her own arms. She also loved handbags and is very curious to open them, see what's inside, dump everything out and take each thing that's inside one by one and check them out lol.

Little Flashback moment: Then August 2013 and Now August 2014. My gosh how much Vivian has grown up since then. Coincidentally she was wearing a Purple Dress then, which went with mine. =)
