I wore this outfit to a wedding last October (post here), but remixed it and wore it to work before I wore it to CJ’s wedding (original post here). I really played up the burgundy of my dress by doing the “matchy-matchy” thing with my shoes, purse and glasses. But it really worked well together because they were slightly different shades of burgundy, and I was sure to break everything up with black.

Floral prints always look and feel fresh. It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this much pink in one outfit. But because it’s so wonderfully bright and sunny these days, I felt like I wanted to infuse a little of that into my work outfit. I paired my floral pants and bubblegum pink blouse with some floral pieces: a necklace with a vintage pin as the pendant, and my favorite Spanish gold earrings that I bought back in the 80’s in Old Town San Diego.
I’m not sure how it happened, but I have accumulated quite a collection of printed pants in the last few months. I like what the printed pants add to my wardrobe, making it very dynamic. It’s always easy to pair printed shirts with jeans or dress pants, but I find it more challenging to build an outfit around printed pants. These wonderful printed pants are my first purchase from Madewell. I also don’t really pick a color theme for my outfits, but I ran with the blue in this one (you may recognize the blue purse, as I wore it during my many days and nights out in London last year, orignal post here). Believe it or not, the blues were not all the same shade, but they appear that way in these pictures.

A couple of weekends ago, my family and I attended an 80th birthday party for another great-aunt, Remedios Posadas Madrid (my cousin Regi’s mother). It was a semi-formal daytime event at a beautiful location: The Skyline Room at the Admiral Kidd Catering and Conference Center. I kept my look very simple by wearing a lace babydoll dress, a light blazer and printed clutch. Although I wore all black, I made sure that the blacks had texture: my tights had a different pattern than my dress, and my shoes were velvet with glitter. I’m glad I kept it simple, because I wanted to make sure that my fantastic clutch really stood out. I included a couple of other pictures: one with my handsome hubby and one of our son. We had a great time at this lunchtime affair, especially with that gorgeous San Diego skyline in view.

I know the dress isn’t blue, but title of this post is for my shoes. These are the cute little pumps that I posted about here. I intended to wear this outfit to my god-daughter’s 18th birthday party a couple of weeks ago. But because my mom had a reaction to her antibiotic, we ended up in the hospital most of the day and into the evening of the debut.* I may bring this little outfit along to London for a night out, which is funny because I put this outfit on for the picture, then took it off to spend a quiet night at home.

*(Edited to add that my mom is totally fine. She was given medication for an infection she didn’t have, so she was taken off the medication and is fully recovered.)
Is “gray” or “grey” the correct spelling to describe the color? I’ve read that “grey” is used primarily in England and many use it to describe a color more close to silver, whereas “gray” is used mainly in the US and is used to describe a color between black and white. Either way, I see “grey” as referring to “Fifty Shades of Grey” (I’ve read the trilogy), and “gray” is the color of this fabulous skirt I’m wearing. I guess the spelling of both words can be interchangeable in this case, especially with these spiked heels (and may I note that the color of my polish is Dominatrix). I think Christian Grey would approve, don’t you?

I’ve got a few circle scarves, including this cute green one. It was a last-minute purchase during a recent mini-shopping spree, but I’m glad that I bought it. It added a subtle punch of color to this black & white outfit. I really am trying to embrace more color, so I think accessories are a great place to start.
