Tomorrow we’re supposed to get a substantial snowfall. I’m not looking forward to wearing my snow gear. I’m praying that the meteorologists flubbed on their predictions and it won’t be so bad. I think snow is pretty to look at initially and then it becomes a slushy mess. Yuck. Mother Nature has been kind to us so I guess we are overdue for snow. Today, I embraced the clean, visible sidewalks, and overall decent weather by wearing these over the knee brown leather boots and this cute orange and chocolate combination. I wish I got a close up of this top. It’s navy blue and white. It has ruffles going down the front of the shirt but this dress only reveals the ruffles at the top. So cute!
At the risk of looking like a huge stop sign I wore this blazer. I had fussed over what to wear it with and thought that since it’s such a powerful color that it could stand on its own. I wore these plain gray cargo pants and black top because they offer a casual look. The red blazer gives them oomph and makes for an exciting outfit. Red is such a statement color. Lately I’ve seen blazers of different colors, textures and patterns. I think moving forward in 2012 that we will see more of this trend.
Does it mean that this week started on a rough note, if I’m already anticipating the weekend? I’m trying to find my Zen. After this long day, I look forward to attempting to find it with the aid of a glass of wine and leftover Italian food…oh and shopping for shoes online. Shopping can ease my pent-up stress. Don’t underestimate the power of purchasing cute shoes.
Since I didn’t feel that great this morning, I tried to dress better than I felt. I guess to trick myself into feeling good. These photos didn’t really capture the layers of the shirt well. I really enjoy two things about this shirt: 1) the fun pattern and 2) its non body hugging shape. It helped to hide my bloated tummy from all the food I (happily) ate over the weekend. This skirt also was a great tool to help me not feel so self-conscious about my physique as it also helped to camouflage. The fullness and long length of the skirt did make me feel refined
I’m going to try to be optimistic and hope that tomorrow is a better day.
David Beckham bares it all….Well not all of it. Don’t get too excited. Beckham has collaborated with H&M to complete a collection of pajamas and underwear for men. How exciting! Not only did he model for the campaign but he also designed it. Sales of the collection begin Feb. 1 online. Make sure you get the special man in your life these Beckham approved skivvies.
Burberry has released a sneak preview of their Spring 2012 campaign. Trenchs, trenches, and trenches are the focus. I like that the coats are structured and will wrap around one’s body like a glove. I also like how their designs are classic with an unexpected dose of spice. The designs continue to have that Burberry signature feel but have evolved with the times. I think that this collection will yield a lot of versatility.
I had to share this super easy and cute DIY project I saw on PS I Made This.
I don’t particularly like to wear hats but I like to stay warm. These ear muffs a perfection! I really like the wine color which is perfect for the season and looks good on all complexions. It won’t cost much to make these either. You probably have most of these materials lying around at home. You don’t have to use faux fur. You can try whatever material you want.
Hellooooooooo! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a outfit post. 6 days to be exact. That’s way too long. I’m going to get back on track and try to do them daily. That’s a lot of pressure because it means that I have to attempt to wear something blog worthy everyday. So scratch what I said a few sentences ago. I’ll try to do blog posts daily during the week. A girl has to have a day of sitting around the house and wearing her pjs as she watches a Kardashian marathon. I may have revealed a little too much about myself in that last statement… =]
