Chic With A Touch Of Rose Gold OOTD

Another rainy day ootd, but I'm so excited because my new watch arrived yesterday! It's so gorgeous; it shines beautifully and is the perfect size and weight. My chevron bangles also arrived, this is the cream one. I'm also enjoying wearing this silk paisly scarf, a gift from my mom. I tried two ties and I think I like the 2nd better.

Rainy Day OOTD

The rain is back, which is certainly good for agriculture, and I get to fit in a few more winter outfits. We're having my parents over to our new place today for lunch and movies. :)

Loving my thrifted Armani Exchange dress and Chinese Laundry booties. Especially excited about today's jewelry: Alice in Wonderland earrings and a delicate silver and turquoise vintage flower cuff that belonged to my mom.

Something Different: A Food Post

The hubby and I have finally got our new place set up, and I am so excited to get back into cooking! My first foray aside from breakfast was these homemade South American style tacos with chimichuri. They were delicious!
Here's the end result, and the recipe if you care to try them yourself.

OOTD With Two Shoe Options


I tried on two different shoe options with today's ootd and I like both! Moccasins for comfy/casual/around the house, and booties for dressier/going out. Do you ever swap shoes throughout the day? I love my silky thrifted $3.25 blouse btw, so luxurious!

Leopard OOTD: Day 3

Today's OOTD has too versions; the one that I tried first and decided was too busy and oot, and the one that I will actually wear out in public, lol!

Inspired by this look:

Attempt #1:
I'm all for a little print mixing, but my polka dot cardi competed wayyy too much with the leopard scarf. The scarf and pearls are attention grabbing enough for me. I think the cardi in the inspo pic works because of the lighter color and smaller, further spaced polka dots. Lesson learned: when in doubt, simplify.

The final look:
Basic cream cardi looks chic against the plum top.
