Back to Midwest

I’m back from Florida! I never thought I would miss 36 degree weather and cloudy skies so much, but after 90% humidity in St. Petersburg, I’m happy to not be sweaty and sticky anymore. And now I’ve returned to wearing layers once again in shades of red, mint and grey.

Last week I thought to myself, how can I make leather leggings acceptable in the workplace, especially in government? The answer came with a chambray tunic and a cozy cape and a lot of meetings that took me out of the office in more creative environments. I met up with my friend and past intern, Naomi and it blew her mind that I was able to get away with it since she can’t at her PR agency. For me, it was just about downplaying the leggings almost as much as I should (I had to wear these snakeskin shoes!) Later that evening, I changed from these heels into snakeskin flats.

My Kind of Holiday

For this year’s holiday parties, velvety mini dresses and anything leather and studs will be my go-to, I suppose no different than any other day! How about you?

Plaid & Leopard

A couple weeks ago I saw a photo of a girl who wore a plaid scarf and leopard print shoes on Pinterest and I’ve been determined to recreate the look in my own way. Once I found this skirt, I knew I would pair it with the polka dot sweater and the leopard print booties.
Expect some Florida updates, tweets and instagrams later this week and weekend as I’m off to Tampa for a work conference! Woo! I’m excited for some sunshine and warmer weather..and of course the conference. It’s the National Workforce Association’s national legislative conference and I’m actually excited about it.

Surprise Sunshine

For the first weekend of December, Michigan weather was surprisingly warm and mild so naturally I took advantage of this. I started the day off wearing this maxi skirt with a tee and blazer to run errands and eat lunch at one of my favorite Kalamazoo establishments, Food Dance. By night, I changed into jeans and enjoyed dinner and drinks with Jack and his friends.
