Dress Up

In my new job, I have the privilege of attending more events which leads me to searching and finding special dresses like this one to wear. While I haven’t actually worn this outfit yet, I did style it out of excitement since I know I’ll wear it out next week, most likely with a leather jacket as well. The pretty cut out eyelet design  and scalloped edges sold me, it’s so pretty without looking too delicate.

Got The Blues

Lately, I’ve been pairing together multiple articles of clothing in the same bold hue and in this case, it’s the cobalt blue cropped jacket and the suede wedges. I know, I know, everyone has been doing this for a while, but it’s a big deal for me! I’ve notice this shift when I look in my closet and see an array of bold, primary colors. It’s funny how blogging has helped me branch outside of my comfort zone and take a few more risks. Anyone else feel the same?
In other news, I’m thrilled to complete my quarter sleeve today. I’ll hopefully be able to share some photos later this week!

Matchy Matchy

For the rare moment in time when I ponder my relationship status and wonder, “why am I still single?” this photo alone answers the question.
Last week when I got ready for work, I suddenly like the combination of a minty green and red and then to match my shoes and purse, something I haven’t purposefully done since I was 13 and believed this to be an unspoken rule in dressing yourself.

A Bit of Spring

It’s around this time each year I’m itching for Spring and I search items in my closet to wear to make me feel as if the season is already here. Last weekend was glorious and sunny and it only made sense to bust out my new pink pants and pair with a nude heels and navy striped sweater. I liked the combination of a pair of pretty pink pants with an oversized beige and navy sweater. It’s just too early in the year for me to feel too girly and the sweater helped me find a balance. I picked up both the pants and sweater from JCPenney as a project to style an outfit during my birthday month of February. I felt like a winner when I walked out of there spending $49 of my $50 gift card with some items that I can already tell will be closet staples.
