What I Wore Wednesday

Aloha and happy Wednesday! As I write this post, I find myself contemplating the possibility of a pair of colored skinny jeans. I immediately discounted the idea of ever squeezing myself into a pair; I'm a strong proponent of dark denim -- it disguises all the lumps and bumps, for one thing! But yesterday I was out running errands and saw a gorgeous pair of turquoise skinnies. I'm sure you've noticed by now that turquoise and pink are my favorite fashion colors, and I think I actually let loose a small gasp when I saw them on the mannequin. Problem is, my body is not exactly shaped like a mannequin's, and figuring out what to pair them with is rather beyond my fashion qualifications!

As always, I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy to share my outfits.

I love this outfit! I don't know why it took me so long to join the legions of waist-belters. Look what it does for my figure! Last week I went on a quest for a colored belt; I was hoping for turquoise but I ended up with this pink tassled number from Forever 21. It's actually meant for traditional belt placement, so I had to use a nail to make a new hole in it. But for the ridiculously low price, it was worth it!

I'm also very thrilled to debut my new fingerprint necklace on WIWW! I got it to keep a piece of Jarrod close to my heart while he's deployed, but I know I'll cherish and wear it forever.
