Magenta and lace for the win

Fuchsia / magenta is my favorite color in the world. For one thing, it looks good on me. For another I just love it, okay. So when I ran across this magenta tank top, I knew it had to be mine. Paired with my beige lace shorts and black patent leather peep toe flats, it makes a nice understated classy summer look. You could almost wear this to work, depending on how long your shorts have to be at the place you work.

What is your favorite color, and what does that say about you? I found this fun little website where I could see what it said about me if my favorite color was magenta. You can check it out hereI’m not sure I believe all that stuff, but it’s fun to see what the so-called ‘color experts’ have to say about who you are based on your favorite color. They talk about all the basic colors and a few others, but if your favorite color is, for example, chartreuse green, you may have to just click on the link for people who like green.

This was such a fun place to do photos. We just happened to decide to go to the back side of MHCC to shoot photos on some of the paths in the woods and discovered instead all of the art buildings – actually covered with artwork on the outside. I may have to go back again some time soon because I’m pretty sure I only saw half of it that day.

P.S. It’s my birthday today. Just wanted to throw that out there. Haha.

Kate Spade for Mother’s Day

I absolutely love Kate Spade products! They usually have a bit of a whimsical, fun aspect to them. I recently received this purse in the mail from Kate Spade in flamingo pink. Even the name of the color is fun! Why have regular pink when you can have flamingo pink, right? I love the style. The inside of this bag is super cute with a black and white striped liner. I like bags with a zipper divider pocket in the middle because it helps with organization. Big bags with no middle divider are a nightmare to find things in. You find yourself digging around for hours just to find your car keys. Gah. No thank you!

I must admit, I’ve never owned a purse that cost over $50 in my whole entire life, nor do I believe my mom has, either. I think at some point every woman should have the chance to see what it feels like to own a really nice purse. I am pumped to take this out for a whirl around town.

My mother is currently fighting cancer. She has a rare aggressive soft tissue sarcoma that chemo can’t kill. However she is on a trial program through OHSU in Portland, Oregon, and is so far keeping the cancer tumors down to a minimum. We have been told ultimately even the trial drug will fail, but it is buying her time right now. I’m sure any one who’s ever had a close friend or family member with cancer would do anything for just a bit more time. And who knows, maybe while we are buying her time, a new drug will come out on the market to buy her even more time or cure the cancer.

I go to a lot of my mom’s chemo sessions. We like to take silly Snapchat photos when we go to chemo together. Not because we’re taking the cancer lightly, but to lighten up our day as we sit there. What kinds of silly things do you do or did you do with your mom? How do you remember Mom on Mother’s day?

(Even one of my cat’s liked the Kate Spade handbag. She took over the spot I was photographing it in as soon as I walked away.)
