Day 8 A Splendid Day


Whew!!! Busy day yesterday! It was spent mostly baking like a crazy person. My friend wanted me to make her a cake which looked like a Tiffany's Box and I will gladly pat myself on the back and say what a good job I did. Unfortunatley everybody was so preoccupied with sangria that nobody remembered to eat the cake. I'll be stopping by there later for my slice though! Anywho, because of my hectic cake baking, I totally forgot to make a blog post! I'm trying to stay on track with these 30 for 30 posts so I don't lose track of how much time I wear the same clothes!



For this outfit I wanted to try and wear my navy skirt with something a little more substantial on top. The thick shawl cardigan came to mind so I threw it on along with some brown accessories. Again, brown and navy seem to be my staple, but I like it. And of course you can't really see it but I wanted a pop of color in my sea of neutrals so I "borrowed" one of my mom's Lia Sophia necklaces with this bright coral color. It's such a great piece, that I wish I had showcased it more appropriately. Next outfit, for sure!

Oh and in case you were truly interested, here's a pic my friend Ana took of the cake I slaved over for 5 hours!
