Colorful Scarf, Layered Up.

Hi girls how are you? Did you see changes to Blogger today because I sure did. I don't quite understand all of these changes but I know one of them has to do with Google Friend Connect. I happened to find a cute, fun & eclectic blog today and when I cliked at the FOLLOW button, it wouldn't let me follow it. Hmmm?!? When I asked for more details, I got a message about Google Chrome. Can someone explain all these changes to me? A Blogger Whiz I am NOT. =P

Anyway, on to the outfit. I think without the blazer and the scarf this would be just a boring Jeans and T-Shirt outfit, even-though the shirt is in a bright, sugary orange. I have been taking this Boyfriend Blazer for a spin with me, a lot lately. I love that it is lined yet light enough for Spring or even a cooler Summer day/evening. The color is a crisp, clean khaki and the material is a clean, crisp cotton. And last but not least I love 3/4 sleeves for not-so-cool days. Short sleeves may not be warm enough to layer with when it's chilly in the morning or evenings, and long sleeves may keep you too warm but 3/4-sleeves are just the perfect middle. Ohh and I purchased this little silk scarf to add to my purses, specifically for this handbag. Even-though this bag also features some Beige & Orange despite the other two colors, and it has cool Grommet holes, I feel like the scarf adds more pizzaz to it. I feel like this scarf acts like a long and colorful necklace, too. Quite Bohemian-Chic!

Hello girls. It is Thursday and I have no idea how this week has gone by. Seriously. I just got to work an hour ago (I work the afternoon/evening shift this week; these are "the perks" of managing at a place which is open 7 days a week for 13 hours a day. I Know, Lucky Me!!) It is an insanely hot day out and even-though I am wearing a light, breezy, short dress, featuring wide, airy sleeves and the air conditioner is on at my office, that bus ride to work was painful. My husband is out of town for the third week in the row. They have been going all over Albania installing new systems, for the last couple of weeks. Some of those days have been cooler, but traveling for many hours a day, on super-hot-weather days like today, despite an air-condiotioned car is not something I would wish on myself or him, so I feel for him.

Anyways, this outfit was brought to you from a night out for drinks with a couple of girlfriends. I had totally forgotten about this outfit. Please excuse the huge mess of this room in the photos. This was taken 2 days before we moved to our new place, hence the terrible messes. I Absolutely love this pretty, sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater. I also own it in a metallic silver color with a lilac undertone. I also own another very similar one (also from Express) in a darker Gray. And I love Red so not only did I have to buy 3 of these sweaters but one of them had to be red. This is a gorgeous, bold, Cherry Red. And I matched my lipstick to this sweater. A fun night was had, that evening. =))
