Neutrals, Floral, Baby in Jeans and (Sun)Shine.

Shine Bright like a Diamond - this is the first song that greeted me this morning, in 2 versions: the original one by Rihanna as well as the version sang by 3 Albanian Singers. Just moments later, I happened to hear the song "Shine" an English song sung by an Albanian Singer. And I guess that was the 'theme of the day' because the sun decided to shine bright & happy today and the temperatures went as high as 77 degrees. That called for a Skirt with Bare legs & lighter layers of clothing on the baby, too. =)

This outfit is the result of two items that hadn't been worn in a long, long time. Do you buy clothes that you love at the time of the purchase and then never wear them or wear them years after you got them or totally forget about them? Yeah?! Me too. =D Both the button-down & Skirt are from Express & both have been in my closet for about 6-7 years. I have worn the Skirt more than the top actually though the top is in a Classic Style & Neutral Color which means it never goes out of style. However I have worn this top with both a Pencil Skirt & a Full Skirt before, as well as twice under two Suits (with Trousers). This Skirt is Lovely because of its Watercolor Rose Print & especially since it has pockets & I love me some pockets on clothes, especially on Dresses & Skirts. I added my new Floral Pin/Brooch that I purchased this month & my Adorable, Comfy, Black Flats that costed me 5 big ones! Therefore since I got a great deal on both my New Shoes & New Brooch I am linking up with  "Look What I Got" today, And I just noticed that I have been wearing Florals 3 Thursdays in a row. This wasn't done on purpose, especially since I am behind with posting. Albeit today the Color scheme is neutrals: Black, Gray, Beige & White.
