On the 2nd Day of Christmas...

My True Love gave to me...



Two Turtle Doves.




Well I know I know, the two birds on my belt are sparrows, but come on, it's two birds! Haha. Anyway this outfit is mainly based on the coloring of turtle doves, which I think are glorified pigeons. Just sayin' they look the same. Kinda tan with a little bit of blue in their feathers. I really liked this look but not my overall appearance. I think I look tired. Oh well. Maybe makeup would have helped, hua hua.

The belt is so perfect! We can just say that the sparrows imply the essence of the turtle dove...or something...the colors of the outfit are also great for the turtle doves. When Jon and I were in Greece there were doves everywhere...even though they are pretty much the same as pigeons they seemed so much more romantic and beautiful than the pigeons of our everyday life in Chicago.
