Unusual Colors

Different color combination today. I cut out this picture back late summer and hadn't had a chance to wear it yet. Here is my inspiration photo:

I liked this black and white silky top layered over purple. I had a purple LS cotton top but it has a silver design and button front. So I wore it backwards to get the solid purple front you see in my outfit! :)

This polka dot silk top was a b-day gift from my sister from one of my favorite stores: Bebe. It is obviously a very dressy top. But, worn like this over a cotton top top of cords with rugged boots it works for day time doesn't it?

I wear this watch all the time in my outfits but don't think ever got a good photo of it before. My new camera rocks! :) 
This is the ring my aunt made. I absolutely love it...

Playing around with the camera and trying to put some action into the photos! :)

Purple cotton top - From Turkey
Silk Top - Bebe

Ring - from Turkey

Today's Activities: We are back to our normal schedule now with swimming in the morning and music class in the afternoon. Kids were very excited to get back in the pool this morning. My daughter for the first time was able to scale the pool wall with her hands all by herself. After swim, we went to eat gyros (my son's favorite as it is also a big Turkish dish) at a greek restaurant.  Then did a bit of grocery shopping before heading home for naps. We left shortly after they woke up so we can get a snack (and most importantly coffee for me) at the coffee shop right by the music class. They have a mini play area for the kids so love that place. Got home after music class and met my sister who came over to visit us and we had dinner together.


  1. the mix of "mustard/purple " is totaly perfect ! The combination of top sweater-belt and rugged boots are awesome. I love this vintage inspiration, so cool rock and chic ... this is a must for a comfy day ! these actually colors are the greatest choice, you have very good tastes and it is a look so cute, we say in French "intemporel".
