30 for 30 Winter, Day 21

07 Mar
Sitting in my garden

Sitting pretty in aqua

Standing against the fence

The outfit in its entirety

An obi belt I made myself

The obi belt I made with two silk ties

Bracelets from H&M

Love the color of these dainty bracelets!

Patterned tights and cool bag from Argentina

My purse against the pattern of the tights

I’m officially behind on getting pictures up but, on the other hand, I’ve got a slew of cool snowboarding photos. I’ll spare you most, but do stay tuned for my favorite. It has to do with a sign, a skull and crossbones, and me and the hubby. Grinning.

Fine, twist my arm, I’ll just tell you all about it. We posed like tourists in front of the “Experts Only” sign for the double black diamond run we did six times. Cheesy, yes, but in a good way. I’ll get it up soon for your viewing pleasure. We look silly, I’m warning you.


Deets: Aqua cashmere cardi/Bloomingdale’s, black dress/MaxStudio, patterned tights/Cynthia Crowley, obi belt/ReStyled as shown here, black leather ankle boots/Munro, teal and silver tone bracelets/H&M, hand-made glass bead necklace/gifted, purse/gifted from Argentina.

    Looking forward to seeing that photo. Don’t think I have ever made expert level at anything. :-)

    PS Still loving that belt – I must go shopping for ties now my 30 for 30 is over.

    Oh, I’m loving that cardi! The shade looks so lovely on you. And the belt is such a brilliant idea. I’m all inspired now!
