Black & floral

This is my hour, I'm never going to bed.
The sky is still black, but begs to be red.
I just put my book down, but it begs to be read
I'm not nod, I'm not napper, never rest my head.
Some days I feel I'm getting smaller and smaller,
But some nights, I seem to grow taller and taller.
And we keep shrinkin' and shrinkin' but this will not finish.
You're never nothing, if you didn't disappear.
Just when I discovered the meaning of life, they change it.
Just when I'm loving life, it seems to start raining.
I pulled the sail safe switch, sea sail and I'm into the stars.
I love the rain out my skies. The sky's now red, my eyes reflect jets.
Smiling at this blessing, this life is the best.

I came to this world with nothing
And I leave with nothing but love
Everything else is just borrowed 


My new job requires me to wear all black, but I never seem to run out of ideas on how to mix blouses and skirts I already own.  The serving pouch requires a belt so I mix and match those too!  All black can get really boring especially in the summer, this may have been my inspiration to purchase a few floral printed items recently.  Summer 2010 is swimming with flowers, and they are a great way to brighten up your wardrobe.  Here are some photos off the runway that really inspired many summer collections found in a store near you.

And now for a quick outfit: me on my way to work.  I have done a lot of shopping and I have a week off soon to go to Calgary and relax so expect lots of photos when I am not so busy!

Some simple accessories.  The necklace is diamond and was a gift from my mother!  You can see my biggest harp in a couple of the photos.

Nude pumps, Zara
Nude bag, Steve Madden
Blouse, old from when I was 16 and worked at Starbucks!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I love the Dennis Basso florals. I used to work at B&Q [DIY store] and had to wear a uniform of black polo shirt, black combat trousers and a bright orange apron, so I know how you feel about the all black uniform.

  4. omG, those Dennis Basso prints are fabulous!!!
    And don't worry about the all-black, like you said, it's those small accessories that make it all better (especially those amazing nude pumps).

  5. Wow, you play the harp - how did you pick such an instrument? Great black skirt combo, work appropriate but very cute!
