Hello Yellow...

September 27, 2012

So I walked out in the living room and my husband's reaction to my bright pants was more of a, " Holy cow, you look like a giant BRIGHT banana" instead of the reaction I wanted which was more of a, "Wow-you look great in that color and I am proud you are brave enough to wear those pants."

It's okay because I am totally use to this....I got a similar reaction to the exact same pair of pants in red.

Hello Yellow! 002 003 005

Loft pants (click here for similar style), Old Navy top, Burlington Coat Factory belt, Richard Tyler heels purchased at TJ Maxx, Francesca's earrings

Weekend Styles

September 26, 2012

I took these pictures right before running out the door so that explains why my purse is undone and my shoes only made it into only one photo! I very rarely capture my weekend outfits (because I am always running late) so I decided to go ahead and share these regardless.

September 25, 2012

Getting dressed in this weather we have been having lately is tricky. It is freezing in the mornings but has been warming up by the end of the day, so I have been wearing lots of short sleeved open weave sweaters like this one.

Another tricky situation is when to put up all my open toed shoes...what do you think?

Francesca's skirt, Loft sweater, Target necklace, Tobi cross bracelet (click here to purchase), Rocket Dog wedges purchased at Marti & Liz

Cream and Blue...

September 13, 2012

One thing I love about my job is we can wear jeans (sometimes) as long as we look semi-professional and dress them up. To be perfectly honest I was being lazy and have not done laundry in like a week and jeans were my only option. Instead of going with my skinny jeans I went with my flares....shocking I know.
