Feeling Blue…

Normally, I’m not so matchy matchy, but there is something very beautiful about wearing several shades of blue and green together… perhaps, because it is a color combination that occurs so frequently in nature?

Slip worn as dress (came under this dress! Similar here, $55) | Zara Basic Sandal (try eBay) | Charming Charlie Clutch (similar, $76) | GAP Panama Hat (similar, $10) | Inca Turquoise Necklace c/o Mimi’s, the Look for Less ($56)

My inspiration for this look started with necklace, which I received as a gift a couple weeks ago from my friends at Mimi’s, The Look for Less.  It’s a really special piece, and I’ve been waiting for the right occasion to wear it (you know how I do!), but yesterday I just said forget it! I was determined to wear it, and my mind immediately went for this blue slip dress.  Even in such a bright shade of blue, it is the perfect blank canvas for such a bold statement necklace.  From there, I let my blue color palette trickle down to my feet, and opted for my blue and green Zara basic sandals.  And, to keep the look grounded for day, I added my panama hat (yes, again!).   When all was said and done, I really loved this outfit! It was one of those days when I wished I had somewhere significant to go…instead, I just went to the mall to buy white pumps. Lol! (But, I got a lot of compliments…even the security guard stopped and said something.  So, it wasn’t a wasted outfit after all!)

And, I have some exciting news for you all, too! I’ll be partnering with Mimi’s for a giveaway veeeery soon!  I know I’m not the only one who loves fun baubles, so look out for a follow up post later this week.

p.s. Last night, I had the scariest experience of my life.  Someone tried to break into our house.  The police found tracks, and apparently the person had been all around the perimeter of the house at every window.  They were also sitting on our back deck in a lawn chair watching us for God knows how long.  Needless to say, I am terrified!  And there is this feeling of being violated that’s almost worse than the fear.  Fortunately, we have a top of the line alarm system!  And, Fab is now in the process of investing in a gun, and will be forcing me to take shooting lessons.  This is crazy.

Thanks for stopping by! XOXO.

  1. OMG, how scary. Please be safe. What is wrong with people. Side note: Learning how to shoot is awesome. The mister took me to the range and I feel like a total bad ass now. Side side note: You was serious about your "serious looks." Now, give me that hat, clutch, and shoes.

    Thank goodness the burgler didn't get in! I advocate getting security cameras in addition to the guns. Please be careful and mindful of your surroundings!

    Oh my gosh, I'm so glad you both are safe. I have my CCW permit and I will protect myself at all costs! I agree with Fab, the range won't be so bad, it's actually a bit fun.

    You look fabulous and that slip is too cute to be a slip! Love this whole look including the hat!

    Great look! I love blue & green together such a great combo…
    Very scary, and great precaution as well. I know the violated feeling, because it's happened to my family TWICE in less than a year. Be careful and try to be aware of your surroundings.

    I am so glad everyone is okay. That conversation today really shook me up, as much as we were laughing. The part about the guy sitting outside and watching you guys is the worst part–my stomach rolled and the hair on the back of my neck stood up just typing this. Sigh. I’m so sorry you guys went through this. Be safe.

  22. I am scared to heck of guns, but I think it is a smart move to protect yourselves and learn how to use your firearms responsibly so you not only know how to use it, but so you won't fear it.

    On a better note – that necklace is killing me. I love it!
