Snakes and Feathers

If you think you may have seen this are right.  I messed up with my scheduler and scheduled 2 posts on the same day.  When I woke up and noticed my mistake and moved this one to today.  And if you haven't seen this post...well please go ahead & disregard the above :)

So....Why is this picture so blurry?
  • I am moving quick like a snake that my hubby can't capture my movement?
  • Shaky hubby hands with poor quality camera?  (A good reason why I should have taken advantage of Black Friday sales and find a deal on a camera)
  •  I am trying to capture the essence of a fast moving snake and light as a feather look?
You decide :)

I am not very good at mixing animal print with more animal print.  This is as much as I can go.  

What are your tips with mixing different animal prints?

Chambray Shirt for the Office

I've seen a lot of bloggers confess their love the chambray shirt.  I am not sure I am in love with them yet but I like how a lot bloggers are styling it appropriate for an office environment.  Here's my stab at wearing a chambray shirt for work.  It felt a little casual for me which was fine since I wasn't meeting with any clients.

So last month, one of my daily blog reads, Bravoe Runway, Bessie shared with us some of her shoes from her beautiful shoe collection that does not get worn much.  Her goal was to style her outfit based on her shoes.  I was inspired by her blog entry since I am so guilty of wearing the same shoes over and over.  I tend to buy shoes like everything I do - on impulse with no idea what I would wear with it and hence most of shoes that are a little different does not get used much.

Take these beautiful heels from Vince Camuto, I probably have had them for over 6 months and have never worn them.  I think in my twisted head, I thought I could only wear these heels with brown and pink clothes.  

Do you buy shoes with outfits in mind?

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone that had Friday off had a nice extended weekend.  I had to work but it's okay since it's such a quiet day at the office that I actually got to catch up.  

I wore this to work the other day and my friend told me I looked like a watermelon.  I am not sure if it was a compliment.  I am hoping it's the colors that evokes a watermelon and not my body shape :) 

I am a big fan of paisley.  I love they usually have many colors that you can work with and the pattern is so classic.  

Are you a fan of paisley?

My Hawaiian Getaway

I have been living in Southern California for over 10 years now but I still call Hawaii my home.  My family still lives there and we visit Oahu every year.  We normally stay with my family since this helps to reduce our expenses but this time we decided to stay at the Disney resort - Auilani.  

All I can say is that Auilani is gorgeous and I will stay there again in a heart beat.  The hotel is more about the Hawaiian culture than it is about Mickey Mouse.  I love that they embraced the Hawaiian culture and there's a lot of activities that you can do to learn more about the culture.  The attention to detail is impeccable all around the hotel and the staff was extremely friendly.  

It was such a relaxing vacation, I was not ready to come back and start working again.  Can I just win the lottery so I can travel the world?

Black Friday

I hope everything had a wonderful Thanksgiving and was able to eat some delicious food and have some quality time with family.  Did you part take in the Black Friday Madness?  And did you get what you went to buy?  I am so curious since I have never done Black Friday and I love to sleep more than I actually want to wait in line in the freezing cold for a chance to buy something that there's only 5 available.

Here's what I wore Thanksgiving to make sure I was comfy all day.  I debated about showing the 1st picture with my coat since I rarely wear them.  I've had this coat forever and looking at the picture, it looks just kind of blah. I have a handful of coats but they are more an afterthought for me.  I am curious - do you incorporate your coat as part of your outfit?
