dark color fix

Over the weekend, I was invited to a pretty radtacular birthday party. One of my former co-workers turned 60, and I was extremely humbled to be among such an amazing group of women celebrating the event. I partook in a very scrumptious spread that boasted fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce, goat cheese tart, lox with horseradish, and an array of fruity desserts. Of course, they're not pictured because I was too excited to eat and probably had too much to drink to remember to take out my camera. What I did get a photo of, however, are the cute, little succulents that we were given as party favors. Sweet idea, no?

On to the outfit. Lately, after all my recent colorful outfits, I'm gravitating towards darker colors again. The crap thing is that it's still 90+boiling degrees outside, and darker colors trap more heat. So I guess I'm gonna try to spend more time indoors until either I get my dark color fix or until it's Fall. One more month of unbearable heat and humidity?  Please.

  21. I thought the succulent plants were cacti and got super excited. Then I realized they're chubby plants and I was still jealous. Plants and I don't get along, though. I'm pretty sure I killed a plastic plant once.

  23. Come be my personal stylist? Pwease! You are rocking that striped mini, I own a few minis and I NEVER know what to wear with them. I love the beachy waves you are sporting here too, so cute. This birthday sounds rockin' and I still love that heart print bag. I'm really over the Summer heat, I can't wait for Autumn weather (that's if I even get to experience Autumn weather).

  29. Your bear tee gets me every time. It's so stinkin' cute.

    A lot of party favors are tacky and dumb. Succulents, however, are not. I would have been pretty happy to get one :)
