Daily MelWear: BBCA Day 12

I'm running out of clever greetings.  Actually, I don't think I had any to begin with but I'm never quite sure how to begin posts.


There, how's that? Better? Too much?

How was your Monday night? Did you do anything fun? I had a caroling rehearsal, which actually was kind of fun.  And it made me realize I should brush up on my music a bit more. Heh.

So today I decided to go with the pink and gray combo as part of the Blogging for Breast Cancer aWEARness Challenge. I was going to pair it with a black skirt but figured I would go against the grain and wear white after Labor Day instead. I'm such a rebel. Sorry the pictures are darker, it's dark out when I leave in the mornings now.

I don't have a whole lot else to say. Things are still busy.  Some things are really difficult to work through right now. I'll talk more about that in a few days or weeks or when I'm ready. We need to pack up the condo and try to move on October 30th.  Moving is always stressful when that's the only thing happening, never mind when it's combined with other stuff. 

Okay. Whew. Let's shake that off, shall we? Tell me how your day was yesterday! And while you're at it, tell me a joke! I need funnies right now.

Today's outfit:
Pink Blouse: Dots
Gray Cardigan: Gift from ML
White Skirt: Gap
White Belt: Wal-Mart
Gray Heels: Payless
Necklace and Earrings: Wal-Mart
Bracelet: Gift from ML


  1. HI babes..I totally love this pink and gray combo....its so feminine and pretty....great look on you!!

    I know how you feel about moving..it really blows...:(

    Stop by and Say Hello

  2. Hope things perk up for your soon. They say moving is something like the 3rd most traumatic thing you can do (after death of a loved one and divorce), so take it easy and try not to stress out too much.
    On a lighter note, this is a great look for you; fitted in the right places and very flattering. Maybe that will make the day a little brighter. :)

  3. Oooh I LOVE this outfit! Hope you're not too stressed out, everything always has a way of working out :)

  4. Ugh, I HATE moving - I never moved in my entire life (except when I was about 18 months old) until I went to college, and then I moved something like 8 times in four years? Miserable. Makes me never want to go anywhere, ever.

    On the upside, this outfit is adorable!

  5. LOVE the outfit!!! Where are you moving to? You could pay people in Halloween candy. :o)

  6. I Loooove pinks and greys together, and this looks fabulous on you!

    I hear what you mean about moving - It's never a picnic, but I hope everything works out for you!

  7. You look fabulous, my darling. And the grey top is such a fun length and super slimming since it stops right at your teeny teeny waist.

    I'm sorry about the move. Gross. Packing is the worst.

    So, my joke for the day is:

    A man drives down the LA Freeway with a car load of Penguins. A state trooper pulls him over and asks, "What are you doing with all of these penguins in the car? You can't have them like this." The driver says, "Okay..." The trooper says, "You've got to get these penguins to the zoo, immediately." So the driver says, "Oh, right. Sure." The next day, the guy's driving down the Freeway, again, car full of penguins, but this time the penguins have sunglasses on. The same trooper pulls him over and says, "Sir, what are you doing? I told you to get these penguins to the zoo!" The driver says, "I did! Today, we're going to the beach!"


  8. I hate moving too.

    Knock Knock
    Who's there
    Cow go
    Cow go Who
    NO cow go Moo


  9. Hmmm, I don't have a joke for you, but I do have a compliment! I really like the pink/gray combo! I'll have to try that sometime ...

  10. loving the pink and grey layered combo! keep your chin up! there's got to be a silver lining somewhere. and as for my monday - a trip to the er with violet... so not fun.

  11. I HATE moving!!! You look great in your outfit! I love the pops of pink!

  12. You look super cute. Kudos on wearing white!

    Not a joke but a link to an amusing story: http://notalwaysright.com/when-the-shoe-is-on-the-other-foot/6977

  13. Awww hunnie.. Sorry to hear that but don't worry, this too shall pass. I hate, absolutely hate moving too!

    On a more positive note, I am pretty impressed on how you styled that cardi hun - grey and pink, nice!

  14. Great outfit!

    I hate moving, too. On the upside though, it's a chance to put things behind you and start fresh with a clean slate.

  15. I've moved at least once a year for the past 6 years, so I know exactly how awful moving is.

    Happy Tuesday to you! You look great!

  16. This is such a lovely outfit on you. Great color pairings too!

    Sorry about the moving. Seriously moving is one of the most terrible things ever.I HATE IT WITH A PURPLE PASSION.

  17. It's a great outfit! Who cares about the rules on white!
    I'd offer to help you move, but we're pretty far across the continent from each other!

  18. Your outfit is super cute! I love the pink and gray! And those heels are rock! The skirt rocks too! I hate moving!! I can't repeat that enough! You have my sympathy! I hope things get better soon! :)

  19. I LOVE pink and gray together! I like the belted look too.

  20. You don't need a lot of words for this outfit - the grey and pink are genius together. You look gorgeous!

  21. Love pink and grey. Just gorgeous Mel!
    I've been away on family holiday for 5 days... nice but the toddler is out of whack and being oh so clingy! Are you moving?! Hope it all goes well. Take it easy, no stressing!!! :)


  22. Great color combination today.

    Wow - moving so soon. I can imagine it being very stressful. Good luck.

  23. i LOVE this! Pink , white, and grey look amazing together! And the silhouette is just perfect :)

  24. This outfit is so pretty! I love the color combo, and you look great in pink! :-)

  25. You look lovely in the pink and gray. And you go ahead and keep wearing white for as long as you want. I really liked the cropped cardigan with the belt -- I think cropped cardis can be difficult to wear with belts, but you pulled it off perfectly.

    Good luck with moving! It is my least favorite thing to do, and I've only ever had to move in and out of teeny apartments -- I can't imagine packing up a whole condo!

  26. I'm so glad I found your blog! You're adorable and I applaud you for lookin' fab while so busy!

    Stop by sometime ~ I love to remind my mommies that being fabulous does not have to stop once we answer to the name "mom!" Remembering what's truly important (the love surrounding us) and not forgetting to cherish ourselves and our feminine wiles at the same time!

    I'm all about mixing designer with great (money saving!) vintage/thrift finds, as seen here, here, and here. I hope I can bring some inspiration to the ladies with the best job in the world... Would love to see you there!
