Fuschia & Dark Denim

We had our first day of sunshine in a week at least...the little ones and I were going OUT! I stepped outside only to be greeted by a humid heat, that seemed to wilt hair and clothing in an instant.  Did I seriously put make up on? It was as if we had moved to the marshlands. Determined to go out anyway, I packed waters, snacks, camera and tripod and headed to the park. Yes, I did say camera and tripod.

Tip toeing around my neighborhood does not hold a candle to toting camera and tripod to the park, full of moms and children, who smartly wore their sport shorts. Freak!! You can bet I waited until most of the traffic of children and watchful moms died down before I started snapping pictures! Even then I was as inconspicuous as I could possibly be.

Nothing out of the ordinary here folks. Just pushing kids on the swings. Nothing to see here.

Of course I can't go to the park without multiple requests to go down the slide...Away I went! (Camera and tripod covertly hidden between primary colored columns.)

We did not stay at the park long. The stifling humidity was making us all cranky, but it still felt good to get out of the house for a bit.

As far as the outfit goes...I like pairing dark blue denim with bright colors or white. Then adding a contrasting color with an accessory brings more fun to the day. Well, not really. Just look at my expression in the full length photo! Doesn't give the impression of someone having fun, does it? Regardless, wear it anyway!

What do you wear with your darker denims? I wonder what a light chambray shirt would look like? Guess I will have to try that out...
