Olive, Pink, and Dog Models

Trains are a nice way to travel. I can just relax, read, take pictures of the sun rising…but they’re also a great way to get sick. Yup, I caught something. Luckily it didn’t kick in until my last day in Northern Virginia, so I was still able to enjoy my trip. I got to hang out with the cute doggies in these pictures, see my even cuter one-year-old cousin, have lunch with a good friend that I haven’t seen since last fall, have a nice lunch with my grandparents, see my grandma’s art show, sit in Cherry Blossom Festival traffic for an hour (the trees weren’t really in bloom yet, bummer), check out the Torpedo Factory Art Center, catch up on some reading, and watch way too much TV. Sigh…now I have to get back to work.

I wanted to bring as little luggage as possible on my trip, so I packed items that could all be mixed and matched. Pink and olive, a combination I love, was pretty much the theme of my weekend. Below are two outfits that show two different ways to wear this lovely color combo. Both feature the same shoes and the same scarf. Also check out this outfit which features a similar color palette.

Haha, the dogs made it a bit difficult to take pictures… doggy-outtake-1 doggy-outtake-2 doggy-outtake-3 doggy-outtake-4

    Sounds like you had fun in Virginia (aside from getting a cold, of course… that stinks!). Love the colors you mixed! Those pink pants are so fun :)

    sorry you missed the blossoms, and caught a cold, what a bummer! Love your bright pink pants and your doggy photo bombs!

    My dog is always photo-bombing my pictures! Great photos even though. :-)
