I had so much fun wearing a dress yesterday (and received lots of compliments :)) that I decided to wear another one today, especially since I have to go to work! This dress is so much fun to wear. It’s summery, cute and makes me feel like a 1950’s housewife!
On the right I have paired it with a blue cardigan. The dark blue seems so wintery with this light dress, and I don’t like it buttoned up- it seems too wintery.
The yellow blazer is so much brighter- and summery. Since I’m wearing this for work- the blazer adds a little more professionalism to the look. You might notice I decided to keep my neckline bare- thinking there is enough going on with the dress. Lastly, I’m wearing heels- which could be a problem for my foot issue! I’ll let you know how it goes!
I’ve said this a million times but a dress is such an easy way to look put together! The best part is, I’ve found lots of cute dresses at Marshalls and TJ Maxx!
I know I used this same before picture last weekend– but it is so bad- and yet I see women dressed like this all the time- that I had to show it again.
Since I pointed out all the flaws last week- I won’t waste your time today.
Let’s just say that there isn’t anything redeeming about this look on the right (well, except for the color combo of orange and blue- which is one of my favorites!).
For a similar, yet a little more stylish look- try skinny jeans, ballet flats and a cute tissue t shirt from the gap.
Because it’s still chilly here in the Northwest, I’ve added this cute military style jacket. I love this piece- you can throw it on for casual wear- or layer it over a dress- it’s that versatile! Best part- I bought it at Marshalls!
What are your plans for today? I have NONE! Weird!! I’m not sure what to do with myself!
This outfit is so simple it’s almost silly that I’m showing it today- but it is also one of my favorites and one of my standbys for days when I can’t think of anything else to wear.
I call it my ‘Parisian Chic’ look!
I am simply wearing my dark skinny jeans with a grey and white striped shirt. To add some pizzaz, I decided to complete the look with a scarf. I tried several different ways of wearing the scarf- and thought you all might enjoy seeing some of my options!
Today I’m wearing my cargo skinnys with a cute bright tank and my blue blazer- which is all tied together with this colorful belt, that I’m wearing backwards!
It may be a little strange, but I wanted to really show the colors on the belt, and when it is on the normal way, you can only see the leather buckle.
So I figured, turn it around, the jacket hides the buckle part, and now you can see the colors!
For my before picture I’m showing my old cargos AGAIN! I know I should donate these to Goodwill, but there are just so perfect for comparing to the skinny cargos that I have to keep them. The loose, baggy fit isn’t current and looks sloppy.
In the before picture, I kept the tank white- just to compare how different the bright tank under the blazer looks. Then to break up the solid pink, I added a necklace. Finally, for my shoes- I chose these off white wedge heels- they are perfect for spring- and being a wedge- very comfy!
