Black, White, Stripes and Cobalt Blue

Today, I have the privilege of guest posting over at Feathers + Futons.  These lovely ladies were so gracious to honor me with the Blog of the Month.  Hop on over and let me tell you why I have fallen in love with the little BIG world of blogging. And while you are there, give these girls some well deserved love!

So, the hubs is BACK!!  Hallelujah!  Thanks for hanging in there with me yesterday, reminding to pour another glass of wine and all the "you can do it" words of encouragement.  I survived...minus a few nerves!  Just kidding!

So, I have come to the conclusion that I have a little obsession and it's called black, white, stripes and cobalt blue.  I didn't realize it until I took these pictures {well, until the hubs took these pictures} that I have been sporting this color/pattern combo quite frequently {here and here}. I am okay with that...and you will probably see it again real soon.  I have a tendency of getting obsessed with things...it's part of who I am...and I don't plan to change "me" anytime soon! I know you are tapping your toes right now with anticipation of the next post showcasing this combo!!  Patience is a virtue, my lovelies!!  It will come, I am sure of it.

By the way, I just scored this skirt at Target for $18!!  It was on sale and they have a few other colors available. 





Two thumbs up for the hubs being home and Xen Tan!

Side note: Both of my girls got their ears pierced last night!!  They were so brave!  It's kind of like being initiated into a sorority...they are officially little ladies!!


Do you have a favorite outfit combo that you have been migrating towards?  Or is it just me?

Cheers to black, white, stripes and cobalt blue!


I am also linking up with these fab ladies...be sure to check them out!!

Awww!! I can't wait to get my Little Miss's ears pierced! The Hubs wants to wait until she's old enough to make the decision herself. She's not even two now, so we've got a ways to wait. lol

You're adorable!! I love that cobalt skirt paired with the stripes and yellow cardi. They're so cute together!

I am LOVING cobalt right now too! In fact, my outfit that I posted today features some cobalt tights. :) And I picked up a pair of cobalt skinny jeans the other day, can't wait to wear them! This outfit looks great on you btw, I think I tried on that same skirt at Target, but it made me look preggo. haha
