Oct 16th,Working Mom


Some of you may know that I work part time- and on days when I am meeting with clients I like to dress more professional.

To me, this is the hardest outfit to put together- and I’ll admit, I stood in my closet this morning and tried on lots of different looks.

At first I chose plain black pants and a white button down shirt- but personally, I think that looks a bit like a waiter’s uniform.

I then opted for a black shirt with a cream Chanel inspired blazer over it- this jacket is a classic piece- and in my opinion- a must have piece for every gal’s wardrobe!  It works great professionally, but is also cute paired with jeans- as seen here.

To add a little spunk, I chose my leopard flats. It’s a fun mix of patterns- and since I’ll be on my feet all day, flats are perfect.

It’s a pretty typical outfit for me.  I like sticking to neutral colors and classic looks- it makes me feel comfortable and that’s important!

I bought this blazer years ago- and it has been one of my all time favorite pieces! So classic!

March 26th, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

One of the reasons I was looking forward to spring, was because I was excited about having new options for pants.

When I saw these cute cropped pink pants at Nordstrom’s, I had to have them.

I’ve decided to pair them with this cute blue and white striped shirt and then topped it with my denim jacket.

On the right you can see how originally I paired this striped shirt with my khaki pants. While there is nothing wrong with this look- these pants seem a little boring- it’s a little ‘too safe’.

Why not have a little fun while getting dressed? To me, these pink pants scream ‘fun’!

They remind me of something Barbie would have worn… oh wait, that might not be a good thing? Oh well!

I’m wearing them anyway! 🙂 Linking up with Glamamom for Monday Mingle!

Goofy pose, I know, but I’m trying to change things up a bit! Plus, I wanted to show off my cute leopard flats- they are so much more fun than the black flats on the right!

March 13th, Faking It

Ok, this is ridiculous. We have snow on the ground here this morning. Seriously?! It’s mid March!

I’ve given up on the real spring appearing- so I’ve decided to fake it.

I’m wearing my new pink cropped pants*- and then paired them with a grey turtleneck to keep warm.

I could have worn this turtleneck with boring old dress pants- as seen on the right, but isn’t the pink more fun and more springy?

I think so!

What’s the weather like where you live? Am I all alone in the cold?

 

*** Outfit update! The snow is really coming down hard now, so I have taken off my flats and replaced them with my black booties and socks… Sorry I don’t have time to post a picture, gotta get to work.

Darn you Mother Nature!

Yes, my feet might get a little cold- but oh well! I need a break from my boots!

By the way, my sisters arrive today, so be sure to check back tomorrow for my first ever ‘Sister’s Week’ post. We have some really fun ideas planned!

Lastly, don’t forget to check out my Facebook page and ‘like’ me. Thanks! 🙂

*I used color enhance on my IPhoto and the color of these pants appears a lot brighter than they really are. I swear!

These are from Nordstrom, Vince Camuto brand and I bought 2 pair- one in black and one pink. (FYI I checked online and they aren’t showing the pink anymore.. Check in store if you’re interested.)
