Happy Easter Eve

Good Saturday morning to you all!
I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and fun.
Sadly, mine looks to be filled with rain, but still fun.
Love this look and would easily wear it over and over again.
  I will say that I am not a heels and jeans kind of girl though.  
That probably won't ever be happening over here.
I opted for my leopard sneakers
added a statement necklace for some drama.
Wishing you a Happy Easter
may your Easter basket be full of
 Joy, Happiness and Peace always!

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Good Friday!
I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend planned.
  • Unknown bug bite on my hand and my hand swelling up like a balloon.
  • Dear girl:  If it is cold enough out to wear a coat, don't wear shorts under it so it looks as though you aren't wearing any pants.
  • Being in stand still traffic for over 30 minutes.
  • Turning into a contortionist while trying to fasten a bracelet onto your arm.
  • Texting husband that he left his briefcase at home and getting a text back saying he had the day off and went to get bagels.
  • A midweek concert.
  • The beautiful azaleas and dogwoods that are in bloom.
  • Compliments from complete strangers.
  • Buying Easter basket stuff for your sons even though they are in their 20's.
  • Easter - Matthew 28:6
Today's outfit was tricky in the sense that I don't do neutrals well and it's a bit dressier than my usual style. 
 The truth is I actually forgot I even owned this skirt. 
 It was nice to pull out and wear again. 
 I believe this picture of Joe is a debut of 
his recent severe haircut. 
Poor baby!

I apologize for not getting around to anyone's blog this week. 
 I will be making rounds over the weekend!

What You Can Learn Through Your Closet

It's funny what you can learn about yourself through your closet.
For instance, I apparently am not a huge fan of the color kelly green.
I only have one article of clothing in my closet that color.
A pair of skinny jeans and I rarely ever wear them.
I have celery, mint and chartreuse,
 but no kelly or emerald to be found.
Having said that,
 I pulled off a "softer" version of the inspiration outfit today.
 This loft top is quite old and one of the few
 florals in my closet. 
 I paired it with the celery color cardi
 and decided to go with wide-legged jeans today.
The weather is still not spring like,
 so I opted for my tan booties as footwear.
Of course, 
I added a fabulous statement necklace like the inspiration.
Now I am ready to go out
 do a little kelly green shopping.

What colors if any, are lacking in your wardrobe?
How about patterns?

Leopard & Lace

Last night I went out with a couple of girlfriends.
One of them told me I had to name this post Leopard & Lace...thanks S!
So, this is what I wore out last night.
I am not a big lace wearer,
 but I knew lace was going to be very big this spring and summer.
  I ordered this lace top at a CAbi party in March. 
 I think I will get a ton of wear out of it.
The lace top just begged to be paired with leopard and pearls.
Funny bit about these shoes:
A dude came up to me last night and asked,
 "How many guys that aren't gay have told you
 how fabulous your shoes are?" 
 Ha Ha
I was very pleased with how my outfit turned out
 and I can see wearing this combo with a cute pair of shorts,
minus the heels.

Are you a lace lover?
Have you pulled any out to wear yet?

Maxi Stripes

So sorry to hear that many of you woke up to snow this morning!
All we got here were crazy thunderstorms.
 I decided to flip flop our look today. 
 I didn't really have any orange bottoms of any kind,
 but knew I had this great striped maxi.  
Sometimes it's hard to pull orange and blue off
 and not look as though you are wearing someone's school colors.  
They are just tricky colors together,
 but I think I managed to do it here.
I honestly thought I would be wearing this look
 without the blazer most of the day,
 but it never did warm up as much as they said.  

Do you like orange and blue together?
Do you find it tricky to pull off?
