March 21st, Soft and Sweet

Today’s outfit isn’t earth shattering, but come to think of it- none of mine are! 🙂

But it’s a simple outfit that I think looks soft and sweet.

I think it’s because of this silk top with the ruffle neckline. It seems very dainty and ladylike to me!

The color is a muted blush pink, and paired with this soft grey boyfriend cardigan I think it makes for a simple, but cute look.

On the right you can see my original outfit- instead of the boyfriend cardigan I tried this cropped one.

While I do love this sweater, in my opinion, this outfit looks out of proportion. With the skinny jeans, I think I need the longer sweater to help provide some balance.

On my feet I have on my Tory Burch flats. These are a great pair of neutral flats- the snakeskin goes with everything.

To finish the look, I’ve added a necklace. I seem to do this almost every day- and believe me, a year ago I never wore necklaces! EVER!

However, I’ve accumulated quite a collection over the past year and I store them on a belt rack in my closet- so I can see them all at once. It makes it so much easier to just grab one and throw it on when they are easily accessible!

Don’t forget, it’s Wednesday, so be sure to check out the Pleated Poppy for more ideas!

Such a simple, yet easy outfit.

Feb 23rd, Found: Skinny Cargos!

 Thanks to the astute shopping eye of my younger sister (love ya K), I am now the proud  owner of skinny cargos! Whoot Hoot!

They were a little more than I planned on spending- but since I’ve been wanting them for a while (and was able to pay cash for them), I decided to splurge.

However, as you can see on the right- paired with this frumpy cardigan and black shoes the outfit isn’t quite working for me.

On the left I have replaced the cardigan with this fabulous cotton blazer from Kohl’s. I love this blazer- it’s made of french terry  & honestly feels like a sweatshirt.  It moves with my body and is comfy and warm! Plus, peplums are all the rage this season!

Other changes: I’ve added a necklace to help break up the solid blue of the tank and switched out my awful black shoes for my cute ballet flats.

Lastly I have on this cute bracelet from Stella and Dot. My friend, Carrie, sells this jewelry and she graciously gave me this fun bracelet. I love that it looks like a stack of bracelets (arm party), yet it’s actually only 1 piece! Cool!

One more note- please (if you want to) click on the link above right that says ‘vote for us’.  You can vote daily- and as of now in the fashion category I am in the top 10! Wow! Thank you so much!!

I would have NEVER worn a blazer with cargos before this. This is a risk for me and I actually really like the way it looks!

Oct 28th, Cozy Sweater

One of the things I love about fall is being able to wear a cozy sweater (and no coat) when running around town. Today’s look is a good example of that.

The outfit on the right is cute, but seems a little plain. The sweater has no shape or interesting features to it. A cute necklace or scarf might help- but to really change things up I decided to try a different sweater.

This sweater works better because of all the ruffles- it adds interest to the look.
I’m wearing skinny jeans (yes, I am wearing them 2 days in a row- don’t tell!), I’ve  paired them with a tank (which is always great under a sweater so that you don’t have to deal with sleeves getting bunched up!) and a cute and colorful scarf.

For comfort I have on my Tory Burch snakeskin flats. These were such a great purchase, they were expensive- but since the snakeskin is basically a neutral- I can wear them with just about anything. Definitely worth the money!

Enjoy your day!

I like the way this scarf adds color to an otherwise very neutral outfit. Plus, it's warm!
