Pastels

So I’ve been splitting days working from home with the hubs while the little one has had a fever, so it has been really busy and stressful lately. We may need to cancel our romantic weekend getaway for Valentine’s day if he doesn’t get better soon πŸ™ crossing my fingers that he does! 

The silver lining is that it has been fun watching all of the Fashion Week coverage online and on instagram – have you been keeping up? I am seriously missing being there in the city, feeling the energy that only New York can create. It is kind of like watching a game on t.v. vs. being there, there really is no comparison. The only upside is I don’t have to walk around in this miserable cold, because you know when you are in New York and you are not a New Yorker, you feel like you are walking everywhere, even when you cab it everywhere, and you fly home sore everywhere. 

At least here I can watch from the comfort of my pillow-top mattress, with some Real Housewives on demand playing in the background, while sipping some hot cocoa… ok wait maybe I don’t mind not being there after all!

About the look, I wore this over the weekend to have lunch with the family and do a little shopping. I love the way this simple knit fits really well on the arms and hits low on the hips with a side slit. The lavender top paired with light blue denim is a pretty pastel combination, I love wearing lighter colors as they contrast well with my dark skin and hair. Just the way I think blondes look great in all black, I think brunettes and Red heads look amazing in pastels.
