Daily Outfit: The color of Rita

Today couldn't have worked out more perfectly.  I was in a rush this morning and asked Fiance if he would take my picture since he has the day off today. He said.. well, I think its too dark out.  "Okay, okay, forget it then.. I will do it myself at lunch time".  Did you think I was going to say " Oh, thats okay honey bunny, sweetie pie..."  NOT.  No, not when it comes to fashion and my blog.  Remember, this is the same guy who said my Saturday night outfit looked like a haloween costume (reference to my pink tights!!).  Anyway... I had to pick up some materials for a work session we are leading and because I have the camera and tripod in the car.. well.. when I drove by this neon green wall I HAD TO STOP!!  I thought the pink scarf would rock with this backdrop and I think it does, wouldn't you agree?

I love this scarf. Rita, of Adventures of Cinderita, brought this back for me from Beijing when she was over there as an event coordinator for the Olympics.  How cool is that?  Anyway, I don't wear it enough so when I put it on it made me think of you Rita baby.  AND did you all notice that I had a HAIR INTERVENTION??  I spontaneously got an appt with my hairdresser yesterday to clean it up a bit and she did a shag on it.  I like it, it feels way better.

Guess what ladies?  I will be reporting LIVE from Quebec City next week and I am so excited to take my camera and get some good pics so stay tuned.  Have a super awesome weekend and I will catch you on your blogs!!!  toodle doo  xoxo J

  4. Jodi...I love love LOVE the background. I want a photo with that wall. Please. Add that to your spreadsheet of back drops and remember it. I agree with Jess...that second photo freaked me out too. I was at first like.."huh?" upon closer inspection, I realize there's a ledge. Jodi, I love that scarf, (so much so I have one too in the exact same colour), and it's true. I am honoured by what you wrote..and especially the title of your blog. Thank you for that.

    I'd say AG could be onto something. :-) Thank you. It took my breath away, and the outfit...AMAZING! You look fantastic! And yes, I agree with Collette. The boots are fantastic and she's right. Evolving would be the perfect word. Pretty soon, YOU'LL be the next photographer on my next fashion shoot.

    Thank you Jodi..I feel "cherished". xo

  6. Did you think I was jumping off a building or something in the second picture?? thats funny! This wall is perfect.. Rita.. think of the outfits you want to wear for our session together and make sure one of them will be fantastic with this wall.. I also have another lime green wall in mind.. oh boy!!

  7. By the way, I think one of my favorite photos of you EVER is the 3rd one. Love it! LOVE IT! I am already thinking about it. Don't you worry. Keep showing me the back drops and I'll keep thinking about the outfits. And my goodness are we gonna have fun with all my scarves!

    PS...i think that 3rd photo would be a great candidate for a new profile photo on FB don't you????? no of course you don't. Well I DO!

  15. Hi J!

    Have I got a few things to say about this post, so brace yourself!

    - Yes, I absolutely love the pink against green effect!
    - Quebec City next week? For real? as in wow, I may be there at the same time as you are! I may come a bit later, Thursday and Friday for work so we may meet up sooner than planned!
    - There are just endless beautiful location in Quebec City that I don't even know where to begin! It's Canada's Europe from the boardwalk in Front of the Chateau Frontenac, to the Plains of Abraham if you want nature, the old pORT, is charming and goregous, the city hall and the massive french fountain in front of it will remind you of Paris, please pack a few batteries and your charger, for sure!

    Oh, yes and one more thing.. I would love to have you in my class. I teach Power Yoga and I've been teaching since 2002. Funny, you spin (teach, right?), I am also a Certified Schwinn Instructor, crazy eh?
