Date Night with the hubs!!!!!!!

I think this entire week I went a little vest crazy, I find the comfort of slipping one on over a shirt or sweater give my body just the right amount of warmth I need. I consider owning a vest a must have, because you can wear it so many different ways. Tonight is date night with the hubs, we have not been out in a while, so dinner and a movie is definitely on the menu. The shoes I scored from C. Wonder before they closed their doors. However, some of their merchandise can still be located on Ebay through boutiques. The sequined pocket jeans are from Loft, the minute I saw these jeans I wanted a pair. They are going to look really cute in the summer months with a T-shirt and sequined design sandals. the plaid shirt is from Express, my pearls are from J Crew. I did not select a bag yet at the time of these photos, but I went with a small black shoulder bag from Kate Spade. A great weekend is on the horizon, I can feel it.

Lets start the week, shall we !!!!!!!!

I say lets get the week started no matter what the weather may be today. A little layering was perfect for todays weather here, but according to the weather channel we can still anticipate some cold days up ahead before spring officially makes an appearance.  Todays look was all about comfort, so when I decided to start the week off with the denim shirt (J Crew) because it is Monday,  I had to put this light gold J.Crew sweater over the shirt to dress it up. My ankle pants are from Loft, my shoes are from Tory Burch, my bag is the LV neverful tote . My necklace I purchased from the GroupDealz website, watch MK, bracelet J. Crew and Yurman bangles.

Make tomorrow a great day, the choice is yours.

Grey Delight

It has been a busy day running around doing errands. My daughter got her license yesterday, and took the plunge today and drove herself to music lessons. She made it back safe, but I could not help but worry. It looks like old man winter is heading out, and better weather is creeping in, but there is still a chill in the air. I was at the mall today and I noticed that many stores have beautiful spring infinity scarfs with lots of pastel colors in them. It's hard to make a selection when they are so much, but, I settled for two beautiful colors that I will style later with some outfits that I have in mind, stay tuned. Today I am wearing:

~ Shoes by Rockport (they have a great cushion sole that makes them extremely comfortable)
~ Jeans and scarf by Loft
~ Long cardigan sweater by Lands' End
~ Grey crew neck log sleeve shirt by Gap
~ Handbag by MK
~ Jewelry: Watch by Bulova/bracelet by Brighton/Yurman Bangles and ring

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

A Pop of Yellow

Today was a rather gloomy day, and we are expecting rain tonight and tomorrow. I though the best pick me up would be to add a pop of yellow to my basic black and white. My lovely flats are from Kate Spade. My ankle pants are from Vince Camuto, and my yellow sweater is from banana republic. My sequined collared shirt is from Elle via Kohls. I carried my personals in my Michael Kors tote.

Dragonflies Everywhere .........


Valentines Day is almost here, the time of year when roses, teddy bears and chocolate is most famous for giving. Wearing red or pink is what everyone likes to wear and anything with a heart design appear to be trendy.This is a special time of year for me, because it falls right around my wedding anniversary, so celebrating with the hubs my daughters has always been a joy, and they look forward to it. Up above my dragon fly silk shirt is on repeat, those wide Navy band around the sleeves gives me that neat look around my wrist. These navy blue dockers are very comfortable to wear, my flats and tote are from Tory. Take care everyone, only two full workdays until the weekend.

With flowers everywhere, I am dreaming of spring ......

With flowers all over my shirt I am dreaming of spring time. The rain for the past two days has really made me want to see the trees blooming again. Is anyone else getting antsy for the summer months? My kitten heel black patent pumps are a winner (MK), I run up and down stairs all day with my students going from one location to the other. My classroom is located on the 2nd floor, so comfortable shoes are a must have. My pants, shirt and sweater are from loft. I carried my Tory tote this week because I needed to walk with my I-pad for some training that I needed to complete. I hope that everyone's week is off to a great start.

Accenting with a little camouflage

I love the idea of accenting my outfit with just a little camo. I don't have a big camouflage collection of clothing, but I love the little accents here and there. I was at a very well known department store this past week and I saw that Michael Kors has a camouflage collection in handbags, they were very interesting colors, orange, beige and lime green. My mind jumped ahead to spring, and I thought "travel tote maybe". I normally run errands in flats or sandals depending on the weather, but today I thought a little wedge heel would be great. 

My shoes and crew neck are from lands' End. My jeans are Loft and my long cardigan is from Aeropostal. I was walking by the store at the beginning of fall last year, the sales associate was putting this cardigan on a mannequin, I liked the way it looked, and I knew that I did not have that much camouflage in my closet anyway, so I purchased it with the intention to wear it more often.  The camo can stand on its own, but I thought that some bold JulieVos pieces would look nice next to it. The coin necklace is a statement piece, but I added the charm bracelet to accentuate the wrist. To top the look,  I carried all my personals in my berry tote from Rebecca Minkoff, adding that pop of color. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

Something in the Red Family

This is one of those outfits that is perfect for Fridays or the middle of the week. I have not worn a skirt in a while, so I thought this floral print knee length skirt from Target would be perfect with a Denim shirt (old). When I purchased the skirt some months back, I snagged this necklace to pull the color from the flowers. Not sure when I was going to wear the outfit, I put them all away until the time was perfect and that time is now. My flats which also compliments the color pops in the skirt are from Tory and my bag which is in the same berry color family works great. As always my gold link watch (MK) and my bracelet adds just the right amount of bold. Thanks for checking in and have a great week.

Just a little pink, I say..........

The week has been going by really fast, it is already Wednesday. My pink blazer comes from J Crew. The blouse is from loft and my ever loving khaki pants are from Lands' End. My shoes (reva flats) and my tote (Robinson) are Tory Burch. This necklace I can't remember where I purchase it, but it is a keeper. I hope everyone enjoyed their hump day, there is officially one more day until the weekend, and two full working days before us working girls can celebrate. Make the best of it, the choice is up to you.

Back to the Grind.......

It has been a really busy day, I know everyone gets busy from time to time on the job, but you have those days when you reflect on them and you say, what a day. I am currently relaxing finally, hoping to go to bed soon. My outfit today was about being comfortable as usual, but it is the beginning of the week and neutral tones seem to be in my selection this week, or that is what I have in mind. My shoes are a grey neutral tone from Vince Camuto. My pants are from Loft, the sweater is from Sheinside. I love the leather patches on the elbows. My Philip Stein watch (red) accent my wrist along with the layered Brighton necklaces. I carried my personals in my Rebecca Minkoff handbag. Have a great week everyone.
