April 20th, Girl’s Night Out


I’m playing tennis today, so instead of showing my tennis skirt, I decided to show you what I wore the other night for a Girl’s Night Out!

I decided to pair my white toothpick jeans with a bright pink top.

However, the look on the right is not what I had in mind.

While I love the cute shoes and the pants- the pink collared shirt is more appropriate for a round of golf than a round of drinks!

Honestly, it’s very hard to make this type of shirt look stylish.

On the left I have replaced the golf shirt with this cute salmon colored top. This shirt is so much cuter than the one on the right- not only is the color fabulous- but it has great details. The 3/4 sleeves, the asymmetrical hemline, the v neck- all make for an interesting shirt.

To complete my ‘rule of 3’ I’ve threw on a turquoise necklace and a stack of bracelets.  For shoes I chose these cute snakeskin wedges that I bought at Marshalls last summer.

This outfit definitely says 'spring!'- even if it's only 45 degrees out! And, yes- my feet were a little cold. Oh well...

One thing I want to mention is that when my sister was here she had a gorgeous top in almost the same color- but her’s was Diane Von Furstenberg and was probably around $200! Yikes!

I’m too cheap (and poor) to spend that kind of cash on one top- so this shirt is a great alternative. It is from Point Of View section in Nordstrom and cost around $60.

Below is Kara’s pricey top! Can you tell the difference?

Kara's top is made of silk- so a much nicer fabric, but otherwise, it's pretty similar to mine.

Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my ‘ugly’ blouse from yesterday. I loved hearing everyone’s feedback- you all had some great suggestions!

That being said- I just didn’t feel very cute in the top- so it will go in the donation pile. My theory is I should feel great everyday- and this top didn’t make me feel great! Oh well… I tried. This is definitely a learning process for me too!

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!
