Pants a Palooza

It's an unusual occurrence when I wear pants two days in a row. But I really wanted to wear this forest green chiffon blouse with the sparkles all over it. I have tried a number of different combinations, but the best one seemed to be with these ivory slacks. The top is from JM Collections and the slacks are from White House Black Market.





Since I am doing a green theme, I wore my Irish Claddagh wedding ring.on my left hand.


On my right hand, an emerald/diamond ring and a peridot ring.


I wore three necklaces, all costume. The longer two are chains with random crystals, pearls, and beads.


The shorter one is peach crystals with clear rhinestones.



Yesterday, I was also in a pants wearing mood. I wore red trousers from J Crew with a Saks blazer. The fabric is hard to describe - it's close to a boucle and it's marled, but that is as near to it as I can get.




This picture shows my blue topaz and silver herringbone necklaces. I wore a black turtleneck with thin white stripes.


This picture shows the blazer fabric and also the snazzy buttons.


On my left hand, this crazy X ring, made of garnet and citrine.


On my right arm, a giant fire opal.

Sunshine and Sparkles

We'll get to the sparkles first - this is what I wore today:


This is a very old Ann Taylor dress with a side sarong tie.




This is a picture of me flipping my hair back when I put on my jacket and pulled it out from underneath the collar.



There we are - sparkly jacket from Nite Line all adjusted. No sparkles were harmed.


This jacket has almost every color of the rainbow in the print.



Three necklaces today - the shortest is garnet, the middle is a multi gemstone barrel and the longest is sapphire.



On my left arm, my yellow gold wedding set, a gold bracelet and a multi gemstone tennis style bracelet.

On my right arm, my giant amethyst ring, a sapphire bracelet and a multi gemstone bracelet.



So my birthday is coming up. I ordered myself two gifts - here is the first one.


Some Valentino sunglasses - they are black and maroon. The V is maroon and has clear crystals.




I am sure that everyone has heard about the rain In California this past week. Kenni used our beautiful weekend to catch up on his sunbathing. The belly lump is his dinner - I was shocked at how big his gut became after he ate.


This is Vinni, looking through our filthy muddy paw stained sliding door.


By the way, don't come for dinner at our house. I caught Doc and his co-conspirator, Pandi, "cleanng" the frying pan.

Okay, so it did go through a high temperature wash after this episode.

The Convent Called

And they want their coat back !!! Here's what I wore today, and it will explain what I mean.


Okay, so the vintage sweater and suede skirt aren't so bad.


The sweater is covered in sparkly sequins.



On my left hand, my huge smoky topaz ring.



On my right hand, a smaller smoky topaz ring.



Okay, here is the coat. It is actually a very cute coat and has a matching sleeveless dress underneath it.


It is made by Nanette Lepore, and has nice seaming and leather knotted buttons. I just felt frumpy and could not wait to take it off. Maybe I can find a better way to style it.




And the office gave me flowers to celebrate my new academic achievement.



So that's it, now let's link up with some lovely ladies....

Sweating in the Rain

It's been so warm this winter that I haven't had the chance to wear that many of my heavier weight sweaters, but since it poured yesterday, I wore one...


This is a wrap sweater that I suppose can be worn pulled down longer over leggings. I folded the wide ribbed band up and doubled it over. Underneath, I wore a black pleated blouse with some lace and sequin embellishment.



I wore the velvet/rhinestone lariat that I got up in Portland.



This skirt is from Target - here's a better look at the pattern. I think it can be worn with mustard, gray and mauve, as well as black.



Today, it's still a bit chilly, so I wore basic wool pinstripe slacks and a very old wool sweater from Coldwater Creek. It's a little itchy.


Here she comes.....


I took two pictures of my necklace because it's hard to see. But it gave me a chance to show off the embroidery on the sweater as well as the tank underneath.




On my left arm, a leather bracelet, my round solitaire and a three stone fire opal band.


On the other arm, a leather/crystal bracelet and another fire opal/diamond ring.



Pandi now photobombs every photo session. I think the fame is getting to her head :)





My January Birchbox came.



Here's what it had, from top to bottom:
1) R + Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo
2) Love of Color Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Playful
3) Doucce Cosmetics Freematic Eyeshadow in Veronica
4) Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel
5) Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse


And that's , so let's link:

Bye for now !!
