classic tortoise shell {Happy weekend}


When I was in Utah last weekend I met up with a friend of mine who was on the hunt for a watch. As we made our way to the watch counter I gave her my opinion as to why tortoise shell is one of the most classic, timeless and neutral pieces one could own. I really had to drive home the fact that it goes with everything. So today I stand by that and in fact have a whole pinboard devoted to the very classic tortoise shell.

As far as the week goes, it has been a flyer. The transition from being out of town and then back home has not been as smooth as I would like...which then translates to the fact that I can not get on top of the laundry (amongst other items) but I did find the time to ride a camel (also not so smooth) which must mean I am feeling good.....historically I have never shelled out the money to let all of the kids ride so Woohooo.

Happy Friday!!

Oh. My. You've made my weekend with this post (and your board full of more!)
I almost bought that Nixon watch while we were in the States, not sure why I didn't, just chickened out, I guess.
I'm more than determined to get some tortoise in my home life!

I've always been a fan of tortoise shell, but I REALLY love it in design - so different!

What does it mean when one completely does not notice the camel but immediately fixates on the very cool colorful flats worn by the rider?
