Mardi Gras

 


Shirt & Necklace (Limited): Skirt (JCPenney); Shoes (Franco Sarto find at Marshalls);
Earrings (Nordstrom): Photography (Simple Impressions)

After looking at these pictures, I've realized I'm a golden yellow away from a complete Mardi Gras color scheme.  Not to mention I'm wearing some heavy duty "beads".  My knowledge of Mardi Gras is limited to New Orleans, Fat Tuesday, and cake babies (I'm comfortable with two of those things).  However I did find out that Rex is the King of the Carnival!  It's good to know he's king of something other than my household :)

I love this color scheme. And I don't think it'd look too crazy with a yellow blouse...but then again I might go a little nuts with color sometimes.

I like your colorful, ladylike look. I always feel the urge to blouse all my tops, but you look great with a sleeker, tucked in look.
