Cloudy With A Chance of Neon (OOTD)

The weather turned today. It's been nice for the past couple of weeks, but today was decidedly gray, windy, and occasionally rainy, even. This is not nearly as bad as what reader and owner of the Wish Design Shop, Anna, reported the weather was like in the Tahoe/Reno area (snow!!!) but it was certainly weird.

I hope the spring comes back soon.

Meanwhile, I decided have fun with colors, in contrast to the weather. When I walked into the local Target today, I admit that I momentarily wondered if I should have toned it down and worn a more neutral shoe. But only momentarily. ^_-

Pants: AG Stevie Ankle (similar here, here, and here)
Shoes: Jimmy Choo 'Baxen' Peep Toe (Wallet-friendlier versions here, here, and here)
Necklace: H&M (similar here, here, and crazy pricey designer version here)

Kate wanted to introduce you to her balloon. I'd drawn a face on it, earlier that day, at her request. So, here she is, trying to show you the balloon's face:

 Then getting frustrated and passing it to me:

And what you don't see is her shouting directions at me, from off-camera, to hold up "Balloony" properly. I know. Balloony obviously scares me a little too...

Hope you're all enjoying your Saturday. ^_^ Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love those Stevies on you - very cute! And Miss Kate is always a doll! Enjoy the holiday weekend!

  2. Balloony is adorable! I'm envious of those lashes! And you shoes:-) great colors all around!

  3. I love that necklace! I may have to check out my local H&M in hopes of it! I love how kids add the "y" to everything that they have. Jack recently suggested names for his new cousin to be Rocky and Flowery. Kate is just adorable!

  4. I love the three colors you used here Carol!! And your daughter is so cute. I like how expression changes when she's passing you the balloon. Girls are so much fun :-)

  5. That sweater is so cool! I love the combo of colors and I covet those shoes like mad!! Kate is such a sweetie!!
