And on the seventh day...


I got back to Guadalajara on a Wednesday, spent Thursday and Friday staring at the wall impossibly jet-lagged, and Saturday and Sunday in bed with a cold I picked up on the plane. On Monday I went out and promptly got caught in a tropical downpour, and spent Tuesday and Wednesday in bed with another cold! So, a week after returning, I finally managed to stumble up and into the world of my living room...

Interestingly, I think this new top of mine would be considered to be part of this summer's "nude" trend, although as you can see, it's almost green on me. In fact, I've yet to see a "nude" item that actually looks like anybody's real skin tone.

My hair made a bid for freedom during this photo, but it gives better contrast to the earring, so we'll let it go! ; )

I'm so jealous that you're in Mexico right now! I've always wanted to go (and It is only about 2 hours away from where I live) but the unrest in Northern Mexico is making me think twice =/ Anyway, cute outfit...simple but chic, my fav!

P.S. I'm following you now =)

Love the top!

Emily said...

Oh my, how exhausting. Glad you're feeling better.

Your Paul & Joe top is lovely. It does look a tad green - subtle and very pretty. And how cute are your flats? I've seen that Liz Claiborne print on handbags and scarves, but never on flats before.

love the simple pumps and the ankle bracelet, good style choice.

I will definitely be back on here.

Emily said...

Thanks everybody!
@ Emily: the shoes insisted on being mine! They were half price, but still I might have resisted them. Then I saw that the style was called "Emily." Well, I was done for... ; )
