In The Navy





 {Jeggings ~ ASOS - I never get tired of wearing these, they have the perfect amount of stretch and are so comfy! / Gray T-Shirt ~ GAP / Leopard Booties ~ UrbanOG - these were more comfy this time; such a different story from the last time I wore them / Hand-Knitted Shrug ~ Kenji - found on clearance at Anthropologie in the summer / Lions Head Pendant on Gold Rope Chain ~ vintage/thrifted / Gold Bracelets ~ the crystal balls are Kenneth Jay Lane and the other bangles are Chamak by Priya Kkar from a 12-bracelet set purchased on Gilt Groupe / Earrings ~ Street Vendor - love these and surprisingly the "gold" hasn't turned}


I was so pleasantly surprised when I stepped outside to take these pics and wasn't freezing to the bone.  I loved this comfy casual outfit, with a little pizazz from the sometimes-comfy-sometimes-uncomfy leopard booties.  I guess it really depends on the day and what my feet can tolerate; because I swear I felt no pain this time wearing them.

After getting an OPI "Russian Navy" (so luscious, I LOVE this color) mani and pedi, it was so easy to reach for this hand knitted, ultra soft, cozy navy sweater shrug.  Pairing it with a gray t-shirt was a no-brainer; I have always been a big fan of navy and gray together.  Speaking of color combinations, I am still dying to try a camel/teal/red combo.  I think those colors will look absolutely gorgeous together, don't you think?

Stay tuned, we'll see how it works out.  I have been searching in my closet for red pieces and am coming up short.  I don't own many red things.  At all.  I do have a vintage red blazer and ONE red tunic.  Hopefully I can make either of them work.

In case you haven't noticed, I changed my blog header... AGAIN.  :) I get bored so easily.  Which is also the reason why we (read: hubby) will be repainting the dining room.  AGAIN.  It's currently "Medieval Gold", by Behr and I want to change the color to something a little cooler. Maybe a slate gray?  Or even a cool green shade?  I don't know, still deciding, we'll see. :)

xoxo, thanks for reading!

  16. I love natural aloe vera juice of gel for sunburn treatment, and
    I also think it is makes a great skin protector to be utilized after shaving or on dry patches of skin. It is lightly scented with dandelion and milk thistle
    herbals with peppermint and grapefruit oils. There are many
    claims made about internal using of Aloe Vera, and you might experience
    some, all, or no purported benefits.
