Serenity and splashes of Rose Quartz.

Hello. Hope your Hump Day was fantastic.
First off, the few of you who commented on my post from yesterday and those who e-mailed me, thank you. I always appreciate your thoughts, advise and prayers - always know that. Well, it is after 1.00 AM and I am now just typing this post, but I am sure logging hours into a laptop past midnight is normal and happens more often than we'd like if you are a blogger, right? #BloggerLife #BloggerProblems #BusyMom #MomLife. 

I am not one to follow stupid rules like "No White After Labor Day" however I had not worn my White Skinny Jeans since last May or last June. I love these Zara Jeans with ankle zippers, so much. They even made it into quite a few of my Favorite Outfits from 2015 so far. And I have been inspired by several of you who have worn your own white skinny jeans lately, so why not. Heck, I even went for a White Blouse. And I topped it off with this Oversized Cable-Knit Hooded Cardigan from Abercrombie which happens to be in Baby Blue or Serenity one of the two IT colors of 2016. For good measure and since I wore this Outfit to work (the hat was only for outdoors) the week before Valentine's Day I punched it with some pops of Rose Quartz (a.k.a. Blush) via my accessories. My Glittery Pumps, Watch, Beaded Pearl Bracelets and Statement Necklace all have Rose Quartz in them. Inspired by Valentine's Day, I carried a Graffiti Bag by Kenneth Cole. From far it looks like the word Love is written throughout the bag. I also wore little Sterling Silver Infinity Studs courtesy of Gems, Gals and Gifts Boutique. I love how this monochromatic yet colorful outfit turned out and how all the different stones and geometric shapes of all the stones of my jewelry worked together. I shopped my closet for almost all of the pieces. As a matter of fact most of these pieces are over 5 years old (cardigan, hat, shoes, blouse and bag). It goes to show you that several very CURRENT trends like big cozy cardigans, the colors of the moment and pointed shoes are hiding in your closet, already. Are you wearing any Serenity and Rose Quartz this Winter? How do you wear them?

These Sterling Silver "Infinity" Stud Earrings were sent to me from "Gems, Gals and Gifts" boutique, a new local boutique in my area that carries accessories for women of all ages from infant baby girls. Accessories such as jewelry, scarves, dress forms, headbands, hats, gloves, ponchos, graphic t-shirts, mugs, pens, notebooks, phone cases, beauty items and more. These sparkly earrings received several compliments. I also wore my Triangle Asymmetric Ring from my first ever Rocksbox.

  17. I love white but often have been called out when I wore lighter colours in the winter lol...people are still stuck on that as if it's illegal to wear them in the colder months.
