New Years Eve

Whew! The year went by quickly. It is almost 2015 and I have not accomplished all I wanted to do for 2014. One great thing is that I started my blog, and that I could check that off the list. I hope that the New Year brings everyone and their family’s health, wealth and prosperity. Today was a semi relaxing day, I spent it putting away Christmas decorations and enjoying my family. I hope you did the same!
I thought it would be nice to close out the year with some classic colors. My black sheer sleeve shirt is from New York and Co. The off-white jeans are from Loft. My flats which complement the colors beautifully have this great bow with gold details, and the bag also with a bow detail is from Kate Spade. I used my bold Julie Vos jewelry to highlight this classic blend.
In closing I would like everyone to be safe and have a Happy New Year.

It's Wet Outside .........

When I woke this morning it was dreary and wet, the forecast predicted rain all day. So I had to dress for the weather. 2014 is fast closing out and it looks like 2015 will bring great things. Today I had an errand to run and then I had a quick lunch with two of my girlfriends. We caught up on what everyone was doing and spoke about how we plan to relax for the remainder of our holiday break.
I am a big fan of vest, and this green puffer vest from Lands’ End works great. The brown ¾ sleeve light sweater underneath is from Loft. It is very comfortable and light weight. The jeans are Ralph Lauren and the hand bag is from L.V. My coin necklace is from Julie Vos and so is my coin bracelet. My plaid rain boots are old, I have had them for about three years now, and I purchased them from a small boutique store. They have this great wedge heel that gives me a little lift. I have preserved them because I am yet to find a similar pair.

Have yourself a happy New Year everyone!!!!

Stripes and Polka Dots

These Juicy Couture boots are very comfortable, I was able to run around in them all day and not worry about my feet. They fit true to size, but the sales associate recommended that I purchase them half size up, that was great advice, because today I wore them with thick socks. The Tory Burch double zip Robinson tote is a must have if you carry a lot of stuff around, it is spacious and it is one of my favorite bags.

This stripped denim shirt is from Boden's and the cuffs fold back as polka dots which makes it adorable to wear by itself or under a sweater or vest. The mustard color corduroys are from Banana Republic and they are very light weight, which makes them easy to wear. I accented the look with my gold link MK watch and my link bracelet.

Holiday Dinner With Friends

After such a filling meal with family for Christmas, the next day warranted the family and I have dinner with a few friends. The weather was quite nippy this evening as we head to their home, so wearing this cute fur checkered print vest (old) suited the occasion just fine. My skinny jeans are my favorite MK dark wash and the zebra print sheer blouse is from Banana Republic. The grey suede boots are from C Wonder and they are super comfortable. To add that pop of color that is truly needed, my red Kate Spade quilted bag is needed. One of my favorite pieces of jewelry that I am constantly gravitating to lately is my blue and gold tone evil eye necklace from C. Wonder; it is a darling piece to wear.  

I hope everyone is feeling relaxed as the holidays come to a close and work and school resumes. 
I hope everyone have a great New Year.

Stripes and Denim

One more day until the big day! Today I had lunch with some friends and picked up a few last minute items from the grocer to accommodate the changes made to my menu for tomorrow. Our Christmas Eve church service was great; the little ones sang and performed beautifully.  They were carolers that met us at the church door which brought the season full circle.

Today’s outfit was carefully selected as we had these sporadic burst of rain that kept up throughout the day. It cooled the temperature a bit so I thought boots was a great option. The dark brown Tory Burch boots were a great find for a great price; they were the last pair in my size. The denim shirt is from Ralph Lauren Polo collection and the navy blue and brown stripped skirt (old) compliments the outfit well. My Gucci Hobo is a great accessory as its brown leather trim compliments the boots well.

Have A Blessed Holiday ….

It's All About The Reds .....

As we are winding down to the holidays I feel less stress, because at this point if I have not received the gift in the mail and wrapped it, purchased it, or mailed it to someone it is just not going to happen for Christmas this year. Comfort is all I am thinking about this week, while looking stylish doing it. I have family visiting so I am the hostess this year, my concern right now is making sure that my dinner is perfect and we all have a great time.
Above I am wearing a red silk flowered shirt from Loft with my MK skinny jeans. The crystal necklace is from Group Dealz, and my nude patent wedges are from Chinese Laundry. My trusty MK gold link watch and gold link bracelet gives just the right amount of hand bling that I need. My Gucci Hobo is a staple this week as I am saving all my receipts and carrying other personals as I run around doing different errands. Are you ready for the holidays?

The Countdown Begins

I can't believe that Christmas is only three days away. I have completed all of my shopping; however there are a few items that I am still waiting on to arrive.  As promised they are scheduled to arrive tomorrow and I am very excited, I have been tracking them for the past week.   My jeans are an old pair from Old Navy, the dragon fly print silk shirt is from INC. Concepts and the navy blue band around the sleeves compliments the dark wash jeans well. The crystal necklace I scored from Group Dealz and the shoes are the Reva flats from Tory Burch. My gold watch is from MK and the charm bracelet is from Hard Rock Café (Gift). This week my Gucci Hobo will be a constant because of the neutral color and its ability to carry everything. I look forward to a relaxing week. Stay safe and blessed this holiday season.

Weather Appropriate

Saturday is known as the day when you complete most of your errands that you were not able to complete during the week. This time of year can be extremely busy as everyone is running around from store to store picking up last minute gifts. I have been wearing more flats this week because of my never ending list of things to do. The weather here today has a chill in the air, so a coat is not needed. My plaid shirt is from Old Navy, the monogram puffer vest is from Lands’ End. My jeans, belt, bag and flats are from Tory Burch. What do you like to wear when you are running errands?

After Work Hangout

It’s that time of year again where we attend all the after work socials for the holidays. As I get older I don’t feel the need to wear red to every holiday function, so this outfit works perfectly. My team and I are doing a holiday gift exchange in a great after work social setting, this outfit works great. A little shine for the holidays, but not too much. The long cardigan and matching sleeveless tank (INC) were purchased together. The zippered dark washed skinny jeans are from Loft, and the animal print shoes are from Sam Edelman. My green quilted Kate Spade bag is just the right amount of color I needed.

It's All About The Flats ......

With so much to do this week, wearing flats is the most comfortable. For some reason, even the lines to get gas are long. This wool jacket with the suede elbow patches is a score from Loft last year. The silk chemise on the inside is also from Loft, it matches perfectly. The skinny dark wash jeans are from Michael Kors and they are super comfortable. My crystal necklace is from Kohls for only $10.00. The flats are from Tory Burch, which as you can see from my previous post I love her shoes; they fit my feet just right. All the personals are tucked away in my Boden's tote, which compliments the outfit perfectly.

Relaxing Wednesday

Today’s clothing is all about getting over the hump day of the week. The cardigan (old) has great ruffle detail down the front that compliments the sheath (Loft) underneath. Both of them are a nice dark green that compliments each other well. The sheath has tiny beige leaves throughout which does not project in the photo well. The skinny ankle corduroys are also from Loft and the gold Reva flats are from Tory Burch. I complimented this outfit with my Boden’s Leopard bag. This is a comfy outfit to wear mid week, especially this time of year when you have so many errands to complete after work.

Bird Pants

This red sweater (old) has great flower detail on the front which allows you to wear closed or open, but closed looks better because of the details. My off-white bird pants are from Talbots and the kitten heeled pointed toe shoes are from Michael Kors. The gold knotted necklace is from J Crew, and I paired it with my trusty MK watch and gold link bracelet.  My personals are tucked away in the green Kate Spade quilted bag. The red and green together complimented the printed pants perfectly.

I feel Peachy

I was feeling quite peachy today despite the 40 degree weather I woke up too. Above is the lovely peach blouse from J C Penny. The black dress pants are from Michael Kors, and the pointed toe kitten heels are also Michael Kors. The necklace is last years steal from Loft. My gold watch is Mk, along with the gold tone link bracelet that I love to wear with it.

Saturday Errands

Running errands is perfect with flats and ripped jeans. A comfortable scarf wrap around the neck gives the right amount of warmth needed for this time of year. The light weight sweater is from the limited, the boyfriend jeans is from J. Crew and the flats are Tory Burch. The scarf was purchased from a vendor on the streets of New York.

Date Night  with the hubs .............

This Dolman sleeve red blouse with the great detail on the cuffs is awesome. (J.C Penny) I added the crystal necklace from J.Crew and a fur vest that I purchased two years ago from Macy's. The Miss Me jeans has a great black detail on the pockets that compliments the cuffs on the blouse. The Coach wedges gives me the lift that I need since the jeans are long, and I carried my personal items in this great quilted clutch from BCBG.

Casual Friday!

The plaid shirt is a must have this season, I am in love with this Ralph Lauren beige plaid shirt with green stripes. The Michael Kors skinny jeans in dark wash goes well, along with the low platforms in neutral from Chinese laundry. The J. Crew crystal necklace accents the outfit perfectly, with the Gucci Hobo to carry all the personal items.

Can We Say Plaid!

This plaid ankle pants from Target was a score, I paired them with a Loft silk shirt with my trusty MK watch and chain link bracelet, and J Crew crystal necklace. The Tory Burch low wedge is extremely comfortable and the Gucci Hobo wraps up my look. 

Green with Envy

When I first saw this pale, green dress pants at the Limited Store, I fell in love with them. They are wide leg from the Scandal Collection. Paired with the off-white sweater from Miss Me, it was a must for this time of year. I began to think of mistletoe with a little frost on the leaves. So incorporating the green J Crew necklace that I scored last year, my Michael Kors watch and linked bracelet went well to compliment the outfit. The Tory Burch sandals has a low heel, which can be worn with comfort all day, and the dark green Kate Spade bag compliments the entire outfit.

Handbag Heaven

These are my three bags that are in rotation for the month of December. I always use a red bag for the Holidays, but I decided to go with this forest green Kate Spade bag this year. My Gucci Hobo is my go to bag because it holds everything, and when I saw this brown leopard print bag with the flap on the Boden's website, it was a must have. It is spacious and it actually carries way more than it looks, also it comes with a shoulder strap.
