Jan 23rd, Recyling

DSCN3904DSCN5929Hello friends! Today I am actually recycling an outfit that I showed you all last Jan. Since so many of you are new readers- you probably wouldn’t have even noticed- but just in case you did I thought I better come clean!

Unfortunately, my back pain continues to bother me- so I am now on bedrest for the next month (or so). That being said, I will try to get dressed and show you a cute outfit each day- even if all I do is take it off, put back on my sweats and get back in bed.

Anyhow- enough about me- let’s talk about this outfit!

This is a dress I bought a LONG time ago at Anthropologie. I actually think it is a nightgown, but I wear it as a dress. It is super soft and super comfy! All alone it isn’t anything special, but it is a great base for layering!

Today I have turned it into a skirt by adding a long sleeve black t shirt over the top, then layering a cute sweater over the top. To keep my legs warm, I have on black tights (one reader from Minnesota suggested that she wears fur lined tights. I haven’t ever seen those, but boy do they sound warm!), and black boots.

This would be a cute outfit for lunch with friends, work, volunteering at school… really anything!

The long necklace finishes off the look. A long necklace like this makes you look thinner- it draws the eye down, creating a longer- leaner look (or so I've read!).

April 6th, Color Block

 Looking back over my past outfits- I realize I have a bit of a color block.

For some reason, I am really drawn to neutrals- and seem a little afraid of color.

But, with spring upon us- and bright colors everywhere- I’ve decided I need to incorporate some color into my everyday look.

Today I’ve chosen this cute grey ruffle dress- and then added a bright yellow blazer over the top. To follow my rule of 3 (I must have 3 items in each outfit) I’ve added this cute colorful necklace.

To finish it off, I’ve chosen snakeskin wedges. I’m not 100% thrilled with this shoe choice, I love these shoes- but not sure it is warm enough  for them.

Truth be told, I’m a little stumped on what shoes to wear with this outfit! Suggestions?

It’s Friday, so be sure to check out Fashion Friday over at Girlymama!

This bright yellow blazer is perfect for spring!

Outfit update- when I went outside and almost froze my toes off, I decided to switch to boots. Not as ‘springy’ but at least my feet are warm!

Boots are a lot warmer!
