Hope you all get out to soak up some vitamin D.
It’s a beauty of a day!

Sometimes your ordinary outfit needs a little boost to take it to the next level and make it an extraordinary outfit. By adding this blazer I injected a pop of color and character into my getup. Combining bold and daring pieces to your basics you can update your look. While it may seem impractical, adding statements pieces to your closet you can expand your wardrobe because you have the flexibly of creating a variety of looks. It’s also less expensive than ponying up for entire new wardrobe.

I took a classic office look (trousers and loafers) and added a fun twist. I wore a lime green tunic, high waist trousers (that have a shimmery sheen) and two toned loafers. The accessories also helped to add life to my outfit. I feel that work clothing can be so blah. If you combine fun elements to your work wardrobe you can express your individuality and still look appropriate for work.
I decided to add my own sunshine to an otherwise dank day. This dress (that I love so much) is one of my favorite vintage finds. I tried to keep it from looking dated by pairing modern pieces with it. Now this little blast from the past is refreshed and right on trend.

It’s been an a terribly long time since I last posted a blog post. In my defense I must say it has been a heck of a year…..a bumpy yet exciting year. Now I’m ready to take on 2013 and get back to the things that bring me joy…like blogging. As always there is so much to say and so little time to say it all but I am eager to be back and can’t wait to share outfit posts and other random rants with you all.

Though the press has fully covered the Obamas’ Inaugural style I must say not only did the first lady look like a million bucks but the little ladies of the White House looked wonderful too. All three lovelies wore magnificent plum color hues. Mrs. Obama’s gloves donned the color while Sasha and Malia wore purple coats. Instinctively, I reach for a black piece of clothing in the frigid cold months but a pop of color is always refreshing to see.
