Oxblood

 Today, participating in the 
Bloggers Do It Better
Oxblood Event
by

For this I picked the 'paige' top from my Kika Paprika collection in the perfect shade for this competition. We call it 'Bordeaux' but it is the perfect shade of 'oxblood' especially on this fabric.

The inspiration was from the August 2012 issue of Lucky Magazine:
I love the combination of oxblood with teal and the unusual combination of the red heels. I also duplicated the white collar and rhinestone bracelets which I think create a nice contrast against the deep hue of the top...

TODAY:
Had a nice breakfast out with family (my in-laws) although I wasn't too keen on waking up so early but we have to given that our kids get up by 6:30 AM and are always starving. After a short walk past breakfast we said our good-bye's and I headed off to Turkish School with the kids.
With only an hour break in between we then went to our friend's house to see their new home and have dinner together. It was a nice relaxing night with good friends... If weren't so lazy and into enjoying our night I would have taken some great photos of the kids playing together. The girls dressed in princess clothes giving each other princess check-ups and the 4 boys doing a break-dance dance off.
