Funky florals...

Hey Y'all!

I had the most laziest Mother's Day ever sans kids and I loved it!  No pampering just straight up lounging around and doing nothing--it was perfection!  I did get dolled up today because I wanted to look how I felt--like a million bucks. And how could one not feel like a million bucks in these pants? As you all know, I've been taking bigger and bigger risks in shopping ASOS' main range.  These pants caught my eye recently and I quickly read the item description to see if they would work for me.  They were made of neoprene! You know, that stretchy stuff scuba outfits are made of? Yeah, that!  It goes without saying but these pants are super forgiving and look so vivid in person.  The only part of the pants that almost posed a problem was the waist.  I barely got them to close. Once they did, I walked around in them for a bit and they stretched out even more.

I hope all you mother's out there had a wonderful day. I'm of the adage that Mother's day is every day.  Take the time out to relish in your inner and outer beauty, laugh without caring who's looking, and live your today like it is the last.  For those of you who are not moms, be sure to show appreciation to your mom/mom figure in your life...not just today, but everyday!

Pink and Teal...


I officially can't wait for the warmer weather to be here.  For the past several days, it's been super dreary and just plain "blah" in Boston.  People here have exchanged their winter coats for trench coats.  Not the cute ones but the the long shapeless ones a la Columbo.  I tend to flout convention when it comes to dressing "weather appropriate" and tend to let how I feel dictate what I'm going to wear for the day.  Case in point, although it is considered "chilly" here in Boston, I couldn't resist wearing my recently-acquired sheer top from Forever 21. It features softly puffed shoulders, a jersey yoke, and blouson sleeves...plus it's stretchy!

Another purchase I am excited about is my Pieces "Nunne" belt.  I initially wasn't going to buy it because the biggest size on the ASOS site was a large.  Needless to say, I am sooooo glad I made the purchase! The belt features the cutest floral design and is able to accommodate my waist...winning! The pairing of the teal with the pink was a spontaneous decision as I believe there to be a great interplay between both colors.  The lipstick I'm wearing is my new obsession and is from Make Up For Ever (also known as MUFE for short) and is their Rouge Artist Intense in #36.  The color is so rich and vivid and the lipstick so emollient that I know it will be my go-to shade this summer.  Unfortunately (for me), this color has officially been discontinued by MUFE but you can still purchase it here and here.

What color combinations do you like pairing together?  Please share!
