Beautiful day to wear stripes and floral!

Today was so beautiful!!! It wasn’t warm, but the sun was shining and that just makes me feel great.  When I got up this morning, I decided to do something, I have never done before. I mixed patterns!  *big cheesy grin* I was inspired by a past post on the blog site Everybody, Everywear that featured bloggers wearing mixed patterns.  This blog encourages bloggers to share their personal style and gain inspiration from other bloggers.  Well……..MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

I have had both of these pieces for quite some time and never really imagined putting them together, but I wanted to step out of my box.  Take a look at the pictures and tell me what you think.

Oh! My beret is borrowed from my daughter.

Me in my office. I think this picture may give you a better idea of how it looked together. *I rarely get good office pictures*

Put It In Neutral!!! February 28, 2012

Put it in neutral!

Hey y’all, hey!!!  Well……………………*sigh*it is back to work.  I just came off of a week long winter break and overall I enjoyed and got a little rest, but I sure could have used just one extra day.

One thing I did do over the break is catch up on reading blogs.  The past few months, I have been so busy with other life stuff, that I have neglected to really, read, study, meditate on, or marinate in the posts of other bloggers.  This week off gave me the chance to catch up with the posts of blogs I had not glanced at in months and also get hip to other blogs.

One blog that I subscribe to is, the Plus Side of Me with blogger Rebecca.  In yesterdays post, Rebecca did a Five Take (5 bloggers take on a particulare theme).  The Five Take theme for the post, found here, was neutrals and while Rebecca did not wear an entire outfit in neutral colors, I was inspired by her post to wear a neutral color to work today (Thank you, Rebecca!).

In the past year or so, I have acquired so many items in grey.  It was a safe segue from wearing all black, as I tried to incorportate more color into my wardrobe, but because I had added so much more color to my wardrobe (and of course still fell back on my love of black, in a pinch), I had not been wearing much grey lately.  Anyway, with the Plus Side of Me post on my mind, I decided to wear all grey to work today.  I pulled out some tried and true pieces and put myself in neutral.  It was a beautiful morning and I thought I was prepared to take pics but……………*BLURG!*..I forgot the attachment that hooks my camera to the tripod! *BLURG! again*  I had to drag one of my kiddieboos out of school during his break and have him take pictures of me.  Ironically, David G. was in neutral colors, too.  Thank you David for braving the wind and taking my pictures for me!  Tell me what you guys think of the all neutral (well I know the purse is not neutral, but work with me).

Grey Day

Hey y’all, hey!!! I am so feeling wearing white in the winter!!! I decided to wear my white jeans today and I gotta be honest, it was a risk.  It had snowed a few days ago and then most of the snow melted, leaving small patches of snow and large patches of mud.

I would not be deterred however, by all the mud and black slush.  Nor would I be deterred by the overcast and grey sky.  The idea of wearing my white jeans actually was an encouragement to go out and start the day, because the thought of going out on this cold, grey day was a little depressing.

Here are some pictures.  Tell me what you think.  Would you wear white in the winter?

I don't know why I like this picture so much!

Wishing I could go to my car and go to some place with sun!

Oooh, La, La! So Francois! February 15, 2012

I was hesitant to post pics of this outfit, because the picture quality is so…………………………….*Cathy voice* ACK!!!!!  I really thought I looked cute, though!  When I walked into my school, some of the students commented that I “look like I should be in Paris”.

Fortunately, I had my handy, dandy camera with me and I decided to take pictures.

I, honestly, just threw this outfit together!

I had been looking for an opportunity to wear my, normally for summer only, white blazer and I decided to throw it on over this cute dress I picked up on sale.  I plan to wear the blazer again soon, with some dark rinse jeggings and pumps, inspired by photos I saw in People StyleWatch magazine.  I love the idea/look of summer white in the winter time!

I promise you, these were the best pictures I took! *Blue Ivy shrug*

It was a beautiful day.

So, what am I wearing?
The blazer is from an old white pant suit I got at JCPenney a few years ago.  The dress is by L8ter.  It is the very trendy, cold shoulder style with a pleated hem and you can get it at Macy’s.  The boots are the over-the-knee style and they are from Torrid.  *side note*  The boots are slouchy on me because the boot is too big for my calves.  I cannot win for losing, in the battle of the boot vs. my big calves, but that is a story for another post.  The fishnet tights are from Ashley Stewart and the beret I stol…………………borrowed from my daughter.
I was also wearing/carrying some of my new fave accessories.  *bats eyes*

Michael Kors Grayson JetSet bag in Pink.

New Coach sunglasses. Very Jackie O!!!

Despite the fact that my pictures did not turn out as well as I would have liked, I felt great and felt like I looked great.  I just wish how I felt (and looked) could have been conveyed through the photos, better.  Oh, well!  As the french say, C’est la vie!  TTYL!

 

Turkey Day Post November 26, 2010

Have you subscribed to this blog, yet?  If you do like the blog, subscribe today.   Thank you!  :^)

I didn’t dress up for Thanksgiving.  I don’t know that a lot of people do.  I dressed very simply.  Michael Kors sweater, Levi’s jeggings, See by Chloe bag and my favorite Ugg boots (they are so comfy, it’s sick). What did you wear for Thanksgiving?  Did you dress up?  Did you wear one of those sweaters with  turkeys, pilgrims, or pumpkins on it?  LOL!  Tell me what you wore in the comment section.  TTYL!
