neutrals {navy blue} + cats do the darndest things!

Blazer (worn like this)-Thrifted; Skirt & Belt-Banana Republic (Gifted from ML); Shoes-Charlotte Russe; Tights & Bracelet-Aldo; Earrings-Roadtrip
Today it's all about navy blue, a colour that I love as an alternative to black for its deep hue.  I am a colour girl but there are some neutrals I love and navy blue is definitely at the top of my list.  I combined a few different colours of navy blue (tights, skirt and blazer) and added gold-brown accessories for visual interest.  As far as the hairstyle goes? That's called after the gym-before a shower-updo, nice huh?



On an unrelated note, if you ever doubted my crazy cat lady status here's a video I took yesterday of  my cat Marley and his bag of carrots (complete with my bonafide cat voice). If you're not a cat fan, you still might get a kick out of his intense love towards the orange vegetable (maybe some catnip accidentally made its way onto the bag?) Cats (and animals in general) do the darndest things and who knows a cat feature may just become a weekly special on Tinfoil Tiaras! Enjoy ;)



Author's Note: If this is your first time hearing my voice and you're thinking egads what a strange lady, I promise you I do have a regular human voice (you can even listen to it here with Mr.Marley making yet another guest appearance!)

  3. Oh my gosh that made my morning! Who knew a cat would love carrots so much. He was totally making out with them :) This would be a great weekly feature.

    You look very sharp and classy in your all navy outfit! Heather

  4. My cat is the same with carrots! I kid you not! If he knows I've got them in the kitchen, he will sit there and meow and paw at me until I give him a piece, which he will then roll all over and rub his face on just like your kitty. Something about carrots eh? He does the same thing over olives.

  5. I need to try this with my cat, who BTW, has the most blizzard obsession with water. He drinks from the toilet (we close the door and put down the cover now) but once that was taken away he migrated to the sink. Now he would sit on the sink and cry until you open the faucet. So like I said, I'll try this with my cat :)

    Has anyone ever told you that you have great nails? And you do a great manicure to boot.

I LOVE CATS, and Marley is the twin to my redzo. Marley and Redzo...sounds like a great movie. Have a fun weekend! Thanks for making me BOL (bust out laughing)Dawn Suitcase Vignettes
