White ruffle top: NY & Co.  Red ruffle blouse: Macy’s.  Black pants: NY & Co.  Shoes: Nine West.

Big business meeting today – so I’m keeping with the business basics: black pants and pumps, crisp white oxford-ish top & bright cardigan.

Presenting a professional image and working hard = success!

Good bye tights


Green cardigan: Sarah Spencer.  Blue stripe ruffle blouse: Express.  Pleated skirt: Moda Int’l.  Tights: ??  Shoes: Chadwicks.  Purse: Nicole Miller.

Just a little bit of a layered look today + a little bit of pattern in the shirt and tights.  I was devastated when I got home and realized these tights had an enormous rip in them.  Thankfully it was not a visible tear,  but it will make the tights unwearable…    :(

I have quite a few pair of fun tights, but I really loved these…  Ah well – I gave them the proper moment of silence and buried them in my waste basket, no longer to be seen again.

Spring is in the air



Top: cable & gauge.  Necklace: Macy’s.  Pants: NY & Co.  Red coral bracelet: Macy’s.  Shoes: Chadwicks.

Spring is in the air and I can’t wait for it to get here!  To embrace the new season spring mood - I’m keeping things bright with this criss-cross blue top and my new favorite bracelet. 

Unfortunately with spring come spring cleaning… I also have a few projects that I’ve been meaning to get to around the house, and now it is finally time to tackle them!  To be honest, I actually enjoy cleaning and doing projects around the house.  Now if I only didn’t have to work during the day…

Going out ensembles

Another two (outfits) for one (post)!!   :)

26 25 

Jacket: Forever XXI.  Leggings: Forever XXI.  Shoes: Jessica Simpson.

I felt like cat woman in this look… it may have been a little black overkill, but who cares!?!  I felt like keeping it dark.



Cropped zipper accent jacket: Macy's.  Top: White House Black Market.  Bracelet: Forever XXI.  Jeans: Gap.  Shoes: Jessica Simpson.

I wore this outfit to a going away party for my best friend’s sister who is joining the National Guard.  We went out downtown and had a wonderful time.  I love my “adopted” family!

Feeling Khaki

30 29

Dress: H&M.  Red Coral Bracelet: Macy’s. 

It was actually warm enough last weekend for me to bare legs to Sunday brunch!  Little did I know – but I was very in trend  :)  I came home to read through some fashion magazines and found a huge section on how khaki is very “in” this season.  

I typically prefer richer, brighter colors, but I just fell in love with the style and fit of this dress – so khaki was okay by me!

Business or Casual

DSCF3792 DSCF3793

I wore this outfit last Friday to work (yes, I’m very behind in my posts!).  Most people wear jeans on Friday, but I wanted to switch things up a bit – so I still went for casual, but not as casual as jeans. 

This classic ensemble of pencil skirt, blouse, and over jacket can be mixed up a million different ways!  It’s definitely one of my go-tos.

Men’s wear inspired item of the day: loafers!

Not Santa’s Suspenders


Grey Button Up: Express.  Skirt: JC Penny’s.  Tights: Simply Vera.  Shoes: Steven.  Suspenders: ??  Necklace: Macy’s.

I love how quirky suspenders are!  They gave this outfit just the right amount of whimsy and still kept it men’s-wear inspired.
