Colorblock: Back to the 80's

This was my favorite color combination when I was 9.  I think I loved it again briefly during a fleeting dalliance with a sorority in college in the mid-90s, but then not again until today.  This is the first Spring Break in a long time that we didn't make plans with the kids.  Mr. Fantastic is away on business and we couldn't organize ourselves ahead of time to go with him.  So today, we hit up a bookstore to find treasures to read this week.

My hair was inspired by this photo on Pinterest.  My hair isn't exactly the same, but my little one liked it and I got use of a scarf I'd been wondering what to do with.
My bun is not as full as hers and my scarf is smaller, meh.  The kids liked it and it kept most of my hair out of my face all day.
Dress: MCM (old via Macy’s); Camisole: Old Navy
Scarf: Liz Claiborne (old)
Earrings: BaubleBar – Buried Bauble in February ($10)
Necklace: BaubleBar
Clutch: Vintage; Gold Rose Link Ring: DKNY + BaubleBar
Double Bar Cuff: BaubleBar; Grooved Cuff: c/o BaubleBar Vault
I am obsessed with everything rose gold and BaubleBar is absolutely feeding my obsession. Between the Buried Baubles each week (for $10!) and the freebies from their Vault (you earn credits everytime you spend on the site) and their almost instant gratification (FREE Shipping!) I think Mr. Fantastic wants to nix my BaubleBar membership.  As if I'd let him! My newest addition to my Rose Gold family is the link ring seen above from the DKNY+BaubleBar collaboration. I want the Coffee Chains necklace...sooo freakin' bad.  Referral Link here.
Heeled Flip Flops: Sigerson Morrison (circa 2006)
I thought I would complete my flashback to the 80's, or at least the mid-2000s with my old Sigerson Morrison heeled flip-flops that I dug up in my closet. I'd previously put them in a pile to get rid of and somehow they ended up back in my closet.  My teenager was mortified and would only communicate with me via text.  At least now I know how to get him to leave me alone for a while.

What are the things in your closet that you can't seem to get rid of?


  1. Ana you look like a princess,that high bun suits you soooooo well!Beautiful!

  2. Anna - I love this post and the 80's. The colors, the flip flops, wow I totally forgot about flip flips I had like that. You look great and I am loving the hair with the scarf - I put my hair into a bun and never thought of that.

    I want to thank you for the wonderful, supportive comment. Means a lot to me that you take the time to read my blog and write such a thoughtful note.


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
