White, Khaki and Leopard.

Image
The last theme of the Create 28 Lovely Spring Looks with Carrie and Whitney was Leopard Print and I am a couple of days late but before April is over I bring you my Spring Leopard Outfit. I wore a Leopard Chiffon Blouse with my White Skinny Jeans (part of my top 10) and early in the morning, I topped them off with a Khaki Blazer. In my morning commute and a little later I also wore my Olive Green Flats and then switched right away to my Nude Pumps which were worn the rest of the day. This outfit is from yesterday by the way and it is an Outfit I loved which explains the gazillion pictures, too. LOL I think from all of my remixing month with the top 10, it is hands down my favorite outfit and definitely my favorite way (out of the three ways I have shown so far) to style these White Skinny Jeans which have become a Spring MVP for me. They pair so nicely with Khaki and Leopard, creating a pretty neutral outfit but which still looks interesting, don't you think? I hope I inspire you…

Tweed Sheath, Elbow Patches and Turquoise Accessories.

This outfit has the perfect elements of a chic work look. It is elegant yet a little fun. Let's take it piece by piece. I am wearing a Neutral, Black+White Tweed, Sheath-Style Dress (which looks gray from the small pattern). Since the Dress is sleeveless and plus it is still chilly, I layered with my Hunter Green Corduroy Blazer with Brown Leather Elbow Patches. The Blazer is pretty thick so it served as my outerwear, also. I wanted a pop of bright Spring in there so I added my Gorgeous Turquoise Loafers (part of my top 10 challenge - yet going strong this month) and a matchy Turquoise Statement Necklace - the Infamous Waterfall Necklace. I was so happy with the end results of this. I felt polished, work-chic and yet feminine. Sometimes it is all about the accessories, don't you think?
The outfit looks great whether the blazer is buttoned, or not. =)

Accordion Pleats, Flares and a Hat.

Posting kind of late today but I have had such a busy day: working from home, taking Vivian to daycare (have to pick her up real soon), running some errands, dealing with lots of sunshine at first and then some fast furious rain. But the outfit I am posting is what I am currently wearing, a little Bohemian in my opinion and perfect to link up with the Creative Closet today which is "Boho Babe". Here is a Wintery Boho Look featuring the same hat. =)
So, in my book my Boho Babe look equals Accordion Pleats, Flares and a Hat. Let's explain. I am wearing a Mint Chiffon Blouse with an Accordion-Pleated Back, Distressed Flare Blue Jeans by Rerock, Edgy Booties (part of my top 10) and a Panama/Country-like Fedora Hat. All I did is accessorize with a Pretty Green Necklace which has Glass Beads. The Necklace was purchased in Italy along two other similar ones. My blouse was purchased recently at a local boutique but it is made in Italy. I even added a little braid off the side, i…

Neutrals in Layers and a Vivian Update.

First of all, these photos/outfits of Vivian and I are a few weeks old, just when I started wearing the 10 items I chose for the Top 10 Remix with Sarah. The Outfit is just OK: some Creamy Neutrals with a pop of Navy and Burgundy. It kind of feels Fall-ish though trust me it was worn in very early Spring. It is good for today and to link up with Carrie and Whitney for the Create 28 which after Stripes, the theme was Skirts. Actually my Pencil Skirt (Top 10 item) has those asymmetric Navy Pleated Stripes, on the front, also. But I happen to love Vivian's Outfit and these pictures of her from that day. Since Vivian has been MIA on the blog mostly this month and I haven't done a recent update on her, I figured I should post this today on the last Monday of April (whaaaat?!)
Vivian absolutely loves a picture camera, especially the flash light part and to click the buttons on it lol. These days she is more about being behind the camera (i.e. messing with it and being curious about …

Watercolor and Stripes in the Navy.

Hello from this lovely, warm Sunday. How is the weather in your parts? Upper 60s, sunny and with a light breeze around here. It's only lunchtime and I have already gotten a lot done such as laundry, folding clothes and putting them in their place, a little bit of Spring organizing, some washing+cleaning, a morning espresso, walk and playtime with Vivian, I made smoothies for breakfast and I am about to make lunch. I feel accomplished and I have the same feeling about the Create 28 Challenge and the Top 10 Challenge from Whitney with Carrie and from Sarah's blogs to be exact. I have used/worn one of my top 10 items for every outfit this month (though I started a few days late) and I have followed all the prompts thus far from the Create 28 Lovely Spring Looks. I am a couple of days behind with the Stripes prompt but fear not - here it is!
Finally, this Striped Dress from the top 10 items got worn a second time this month (though I have worn it a third time already but have yet …
