The beauty to outdoor photos is the natural lighting.  The down side to outdoor photos is the wind.  I had a heck of a time hanging onto my scarf and the wind kept wanting to blow it right off me.  I am just glad the weather is still beautiful.  I don't know what luck has fallen on me, but I have had great luck shopping my closet and putting together some fun and versatile outfits lately! 
I received this dainty Giuliana bracelet in blue Chalcedony from my friend Sandy who has a darling etsy site Mes2PetiteEtoiles.  I said earlier this year I wanted to incorporate more blue into my wardrobe, so when she offered me the chance to select a piece of jewelry from her site I knew this was it.  It is darling!  Hand wired with gold vermeil, and a stone placed to dangle between the links.  It is perfect to stack or where alone.
Being the mother of all boys, I think of gifts that would symbolize that "special little club we're in".  You know, people always say there is a special place in heaven for mother of all boys!   I think this would make a great gift to a new mom, or as a mothers day  or Christmas gift for her first year. I think she even makes it in pink! 
Tonight I am headed to meet up with Rebecca Minkoff, you know, were old roomies!  Okay, not really.  Actually she doesn't know me.  Well, she did favorite a few of my tweets last year, and tweet me back, so that should count for something!  Maybe she will do a tee shirt toss, except use her purses and I will catch one!  I highly doubt that is on the agenda, but hey, I can dream!  She is in town for a little meet and great on the Plaza and a few of my girlfriends and I are planning on attending, then off to opening night of KCFW.   Should be a great time, and some tired eyes tomorrow!
