Red and Black in Plaid.

Hahaa, don't you like how I rhymed the title!? I basically described this Chiffon Blouse from bebe, which I love. I remember getting a lot of compliments the day I wore this outfit. I actually quite love this blouse and have had it in my closet for at least 2 years but would you believe it if I tell you, this is the first and only time I have worn it so far? That's a problem with a clotheshorse like myself. I own A TON of stuff, half of which I have never worn... YET! Do you fashionistas have this similar problem as I do? And once again I love skirts & dresses with pockets. Gap had some cute stuff in their 2011 collections and this is one of their pieces. ;-)

Hi all, how was your Saturday? I woke up kind of late, did some laundry, ate breakfast, did some grocery shopping, took a nap, prepared lunch, ate lunch with my honey. Then we both went to bed to read our current books. After, I took a shower and got dolled up for a date with my husband. First we went to our local Cafe-Bar (on the bottom level of the building where our home is located), he had coffee, I had a juice cocktail. Later we did some walking around, checking out new places. We finally settled at a Villa type of restaurant where we sat outside, at their gorgeous patio. We had a light dinner consisting of Sautee Mussels, Fish Soup & Grilled Greek Cheese and finishing with Ice Cream. The whole time we were serenaded by a piano player and by a violin player, located right next to our table. And not just any violin player: the best and oldest violin player currently living in Albania. That man is amazing and so very talented. I took a day off from Facebook, E-Mail & Blogging yesterday and I come back today. Whew, listing all of that seems like I did a lot, but it was a very laid-back, relaxing kind of day and we were sorrounded by hot rays of sunshine, too. =)

I have to bring you some more cooler-weather outfits your way, till I fully catch up with OOTD Posting on this blog. So here is another layered outfit. I own a lot of cardigans, including at least 4 black cardigans. But over the past Fall/Winter and even Spring I seemed to reach over this particular cardigan and wore it a ton. I love its longer length, the feel of the knit, how simple and versatile it is. Definitely a great piece from Express. I love this funky, ruffled-sleeve blouse I am wearing. It is sort of a spider-print as the whole print creates a spider web. And I also think that spiders are gray so this blouse creates that same effect. Describing it might sound gross and weird but I actually do love this top. Its longer length would make it great layered over Bermudas for Summer, too.

I will be back later today with another outfit. You guys take care and enjoy your Sunday!!
