I talked about how much I love the chartreuse/maroon color combination in my last post, but I also love the green and purple combo. It always reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I love when characters have such distinct colors associated with them. It seems like Disney is big on that.
Can you tell I've been feeling particularly feline lately? Well, not really. I've just been gravitating towards my cat-inspired items recently, like these leopard print tights. I rarely wear them, so I thought it was time to break them out again. I actually transitioned this outfit into the night. Not by making it more fancy, but by making it more warm! I switched out my leopard tights for my fleece-lined grey ones and my heels for black riding boots. I also added an oatmeal cardigan for extra warmth. It was a lot warmer than this was! I love outfits that can be worked with and remixed easily. Solid colored pieces are especially easy to do that with.
I got this opal ring from Chris for Christmas last year (as in 2012) and after a month or so, the stone had come loose when I was trying to get something out of a drawer and hit the ring on it. It was also a size too big, so I had to wear it on my middle finger. Because I'm always running around and feeling like I have a million things to do, I never got around to getting it fixed and resized. My uncle is a jeweler, so I finally took it to him a couple of days before this past Christmas and now it's the right size and the stone is back in place! Hooray! :) I really love that my birthstone is opal. It's such a unique and interesting gem. It almost looks like a tiny galaxy, especially when the sun hits it!
