When: Wednesday February 17, 2010

What:
Orange turtleneck: I think it used to be my mom's back in the day :)
Floral skirt: Saks (Panama)
Brown belt: Pull & Bear (Europe)
Brown tights: Target
Beige boots: El Costo (Panama)

Where: Spent the day planning out all the events, trips, and duties I have. Then I made a long, detailed, and obsessive schedule... jaja, I'm such an organization freak :)

Comments:
Today I wanted to wear something bright and "me". A floral skirt + bright colors pretty much equals my go-to outfit. Today's outfit has a special item in it though, these gorgeous multi-color earrings. They have a funny story to them too!

When my parents came to visit me last year for my birthday, I wore these earrings on a BBQ night. I bought these earrings because they have such pretty colors, but they were always crooked and would face anywhere but forward.

That day, my mom insisted in fidgeting with my earrings trying to fix them as I insisted to just let it be. Then SNAP!... it broke... jaja I thought it was sorda funny really (you know, always keep smiling is my modo).

Then we worked on fixing it and who would have known? it turned out straight! We even had to break the other earring to straighten it out too... jaja

I haven't made any outfits with this top or skirt, so I decided to post some orange-y outfits instead :)

  3. You know me I always have to see if I can make something just perfect and then the earring broke.... well at least we got them fixed. That day was so special having that yummy BBQ. Hate to say that the turtleneck dates back to when I was still single and that is over 30 years now. Goes to show that some things dont go out of style. So everyone save your classic pieces since they will eventually come back in style. LOL Love you lots MOM

  6. I usually feel that an item like an orange turtleneck would be hard to pull off (at least for me), but I think you look super cute in it!

    And thanks for the "thumbs up," haha.
