Geo Floral and the Most Wonderful 30 Months.

I was going to post this pattern-mixed outfit on Friday, but since it was a National Holiday here we decided to go to the beach - much better than blogging if you ask me lol. I am very fond of my new Neon Necklace, new Flower Neon Yellow Earrings, new Elephant Beaded Bracelet and in particular my new Pretty Tulip-Print Top.
My Sweet little girl Vivian had been MIA for quite some time from my blog. Well, today she makes an appearance which is a perfect way to honor her since she is exactly 2.5 years old or 30 months old today.

This is what I wrote earlier on my personal Facebook about her: 
"30 months of Bliss! 30 months of Joy! 30 months of Laughter! 30 months of Happiness! 30 months of Vivian! 30 months of the Greatest, Most Unconditional Eternal Love!! Today Vivian is exactly two and a half years old. I couldn't tell you how time has gone. I couldn't tell you how often I have both cried and laughed for her and with her. But I can tell you the past 30 months have been THE BEST 30 months of my life! May you live another 3000 months my beautiful love! May you continue to bless my life and grow my heart! You are MY EVERYTHING. I Love you My Princess Vivian!!"

Vivian - fiesty, energetic, strong and always in the mood to play, jump, dance or climb on something.
I own a lot of Cute Summer Skirts. This B+W Geometric-Print one which has pockets is by far one of my favorites and unfortunately had been ignored for far too long. I decided to pair it with one of my newest floral tops. This top is Navy with White Tulips. The outline of the Tulips is in a Bright Neon Yellow. The back is detailed also: gold metallic little buttons down the middle and the upper part of the back is see-through chiffon. I know just on my last post, the first outfit had a Navy+White Top which I paired with Black+White bottoms. The combination works ladies, I did it again today. My New Neon Collar Necklace (which is mostly Yellow) worked perfectly to bring out the Yellow from the Blouse. I also wore Neon Yellow+Pearl Flower Earrings, a Yellow Bracelet layered with an Ivory Bracelet with an Elephant Charm and my Little Gold Gladiator Sandals. It all worked effortlessly without being too matchy. Vivian's little Baby Blue+White Gingham Dress is in Seersucker - gifted from a Friend from France. Her pigtails are her cutest accessory. Though we cut her hair a month and a half ago, it grew long enough now to do ponytails. So, have you ever pattern-mixed a Geometric Print with Floral before? This is my first time but since both pieces are pretty much in the same or similar colors, it worked.

You are such a loving mom to her, she is so blessed to have you :) That tulip skirt goes well with all of your pops of yellow you've added with the accessories. Great pattern mixing, too!
