"Screw Labor Day and Memorial Day, wear white whenever and however you like". 
After all it’s that time of the year when the sun teases us into thinking it’s Summer even though the temps say otherwise. Through all that sunshine the rain has also been coming down like we are in the middle of the Amazon somewhere. 

Capes are not just for superheroes anymore. Infact they're hugely present in vintage fashion and have gone mainstream fashion popping up everywhere. I don’t know of a lot of gals that don’t own at least one cape dress. They add interest to a look. This lil cape of mine added an oomph to an otherwise simple and straight cut jumpsuit while maintaining a clean, minimal silhouette - understated elegance, totally!

I’ve been down with a cold. One of the downsides of working with kids. One kid gets a cold and we all get it, all it takes is one sneeze. I probably sound like a broken record reminding the kiddos to sneeze into the bend of their elbows. So I've been home nursing a cold that has every symptom in the book, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, stuffy nose. 

Didn’t I mention here that March is burnout month for educators? Yes, we all are getting cross-eyed testing kids, inputting test scores in the system and working on second trimester report cards. That was my week. Long and hard. I’m taking it all in stride, it’s still March and I’m still so unabashedly excited and celebrating my entire birth month, :)). #NotLettingAnythingBurstMyBubble. 
I hope your week was way better than mine.

Seen the movie Zootopia yet? I saw it 3D and I loved every minute. Many lessons learned too. I won’t spoil it for you, just go see it. 

Today I’m showing another birthday look wearing a jumpsuit and cape designed for me by Zoearku. I paired it with an amazing statement necklace from Takai By Angela, studded pink and gold heels (my favorite of all the shoes I own) that unfortunately didn’t really show and a pink clutch. What's not to love, :))).

My last post was so lengthy and I applaud you for reading. I’m keeping this very short and sweet, ;).

Your thoughts?

Thank you for stopping by. Keep thinking the purple thoughts, Xo.

  6. an angel of style! you really look divine in all white. That jumpsuit fits you perfectly dear! The cape is the perfect pairing with it. Furthermore, it makes this outfit more bold and fashion forward. However, at the same this this combo is flawlessly elegant and impecabbly well put together. A winning look for sure....and enhanced with your winning smile.

    Fabulous photos...I like you both with a pixie and with a wig...both hairstyles match this outfit wonderfully! You're like a breath of fresh air, with you natural smile and radiant personality.

    Sorry to hear about your cold. Today I'm a bit disoriented myself. There was a sudden weather change and I guess that my body hasn't adjusted yet, it's not exactly a cold, but I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I hope you feel better now. Yes, March can be a challenging month indeed! I only worked as an educator for a year (but during that time I sometimes worked in several schools as a substitute) but I rememeber well the enourmous energy investment it takes to teach. I love kids and I still volunteer from time to time, yet the truth is that working with kids requires a lot of concentration and energy...and it is such a great resposibility! I think all educators of the world should get at least one free spa day a week, maybe on Saturdays:)! It should be mandatory:).

  7. Kids are such germy creatures aren't they? I hope you're feeling better Idu! I absolutely agree that we should wear white whenever we damn well please and you certainly prove the point. Beautiful!

  27. Capes are really quite the instant statement makers for any outfit even though your all white look is pretty fabulous on it's own. So fun to see more from your amazing birthday celebration. Take care and don't let that burnout catch up with you this month Idu!

I hope you're okay now and feeling better. By the way, Happy birthday! Looking so gorgeous with white, I hope I can wear something like that without worrying too much that I might get dirty. :) You're really rocking this white ensemble so well! and your makeup is gorgeous :)

  49. I hope you're fairing through March thus far. I have a cousin in CT who is a teacher and I've read many a post from her about this bahahaha. I've also heard that about schools and kids, mostly from friends who have kids in school and when one comes down with something, they all catch it and then the parents. No bueno!

  51. Wow! Where do I start? Let's start with you being sick! Obviously there is a bug going around. Sorry to hear you had to nurse that little monster. I hope you get better soon. As much as we love the students, being sick comes with the job, but we still have to be careful.
    It looks like an angel has fallen from heaven. The cake is magnifique, in my perfect French accent. LOL! You look so stunning, love. And I think this necklace is da bomb. Kisses!

  68. Firstly get well soon my dear Idu, I understand how cold can be so contagious and how a simple sneeze gives way to headaches, bodyaches. I hope by the time you read my comment you've already recovered. And I think your birthday was Queen Style! Believe me this is one of the most lavish birthday I've seen. I still can't get over how I love the fact that you gifted yourself a Mercedes! That's how its supposed to be I feel, we work hard and we gift ourselves the things we love when we want to! And those cape and the jumpsuit! How can you look so effortlessly graceful everytime! You need to share your secrets with us <3
