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.

I'm headed to a flea market/craft event today, so I wanted to wear something eye catching and festive. My printed pants and coral statement necklace seem to fit the bill. This entire outfit, except for the necklace is thrifted.

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.
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!

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:
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.
