Chinease breakfast with my girl friends, baked some goodies, and my Secret Santa party with my friends.

Today I had my Secret Santa party with my friends and I had the most wonderful time. It was lovely to spend time with my friends since I missed them so much being in the U.S. I especially loved going out to breakfast with my two best girl friends. There is something so magical about speaking with them since I know they get me and I get them perfectly.

At the Secret Santa event, my friends planned me a surprise and gave me "late" birthday presents since they werent able to be there with me in the U.S. I thought that was soooooo sweet of them, they always make me feel so special. One of the presents had the CUTEST Christmas box I have ever seen!!!

I loooove the spring floral feel of this outfit. It sorda reminds me of a field filled with wild flowers on a beautiful spring day. The colors all go together beautifully, especially the green with the purple purse! I was very happy in this outfit because I felt it was very "me". Do you ever wear outfits that you feel are perfect for you? as if its a "you outfit"?

Here is another outfit in which I wore green and a purpleish color together:

Since I received lots of clothes and accesories for Christmas, its so fun to have all these new clothes to pick from to make my daily outfits. In this case I decided to wear this patterned dress as a skirt. Then I chose this red top to pick up the sorda redish details in the skirt's pattern. The black accessories serve as a way to pull it all together.

Here are other ways in which I've worn this grey jacket:

Block dress: Christmas present (Panama)
Skinny Jeans: Guess
Off-White belt: Panama
Turquoise wedges: Panama
Beige Tommy Hilfiger purse: borrowed from my mom

Where: Finally cleaned my room and spent some time with the family at home

I really like this multi-colored necklace, but many times I don't know what to wear it with. So I was very happy when I realized that it woud look great with this block colored dress I got for Christmas. I actually paired it with jeans (yes, I wear pants sometimes) and then added these turquoise wedges I have had since forever. I really like how the outfit turned out, and it was really comfy too :)

Navy tights: Panama

Off white belt: Panama

Beige wedges: Panama

Ok, that shown, lets get on with the outfit talk.. jeje :)

Sometimes there are some items, like this beautiful aqua dress my parents gave me for Christmas, that have such an interesting neckline that there really shouldnt be anything else competing with it. Since the beauty of this dress was the straps and the neckline, I pulled my hair up so it was clearly visible and I also held back from adding a necklace. That way, there isnt anything else competing with the neckline's "spotlight".. jeje

I really wanted to wear this aqua dress today, but I didnt know what to pair it with. I just happened to try these leggins on and I really liked the two colors together! This may become a new favorite combo: navy & aqua! Have any onf you ever worn these two colors together?

Here are other outfits in which I've worn a somewhat similar color combo:
