Mustard Punched with Coral and Cognac.

Good Morning & Good Thursday. Believe it or not I wore boots at least 6-7 times in May. Some days called for it, other times I just wanted to make a fashion statement. And speaking of boots, this is the first and ever time this year I wore these boots. I kind of forgot about them. I love them, though. =) I adore this mustard cardigan. I purchased it the same day I purchased this same color tee from a store I used to love but who is no longer in business: Martin & Osa. Come on American Eagle (they were owned by the same company) why couldn't you keep this store in business? They were a similar store to J.Crew and Banana Republic: clean-cut, casual yet well-kept, simple, fun. I loved it and I loved their shoes, scarves & sunglasses, too. Besides their clothes, I loved their awesome, clean, modern store as well. Also, the necklace I am wearing here was purchased for dirt cheap at one of my favorite jewelry stores: Fred's Jewelry. You may have noticed a lot of my jewel…

Ruffles that Mimic Ruffles!

Hello everyone once again on this Wednesday Evening. Sorry to post so often here, lately guys (twice a day with a new outfit) but I have so many leftover outfits that I never posted before and that I think are worth blogging. It is how I dress daily, anyways. However I need more of you to stop by more often at my page, show me some love, comment my outfit choices and spread your word out on your own blogs for me - of course only if you like to do these things. I really need to do some thorough deep marketing in regards to this blog. I mean to do it but I have been so busy with work and at home lately that I haven't been able to write such a specific post. I also need to change the header and greeter of my blog, and start to hopefully gain some sponsors, add some adds to my page and such. It will create more traffic, more readers and it will make my blog more lovable for all of you who know about it or who may not know about it. All advice and tips on this are welcome as well so pl…

I love wearing business dressy pants or trousers to work, especially on those days when I got something important like a meeting, a conference or a Corporate VIP visiting. I own several trousers or work pants, mostly from retailers like The Limited & Express, but also some from NY&Co, White House Black Market, Gap & Old Navy. This pretty Kelly Green shell is one of my favorite blouses and I like to think of it as "a lucky top" as well. When I was interviewing to find a job, I wore it a few times, either paired with this black cardigan or a black blazer. I sometimes wore a black pencil skirt on the bottom, sometimes black pants/trousers and other times I wore my houndstooth Green & Black pencil skirt that matches it beautifully. I was wearing this shell with my black blazer & black pencil skirt for my first interview with my current job. I found out from that very first interview that I was a strong, winning cadidate. It was pretty much a done deal by the …

Layers and Boots.

I know this looks and feels more like a Fall Outfit but I wore it during a chilly Spring 2012 day. I think most bloggers like layering and I do as well. On top of the blouse and blazer, a cute little circle scarf tied loosely around the neck would complete and make this layered look even better. And I did wear a circle/infinity scarf for the outside and took it off while in the office. I, of course, forgot to take pics of this look with the scarf on. But the scarf was cozy, a very light knit material in a honey color. It matched my lovely Cognac Boots, quite well.

Good Morning & Good Tuesday All. I just got to work and I have a bunch of things to do but I wanted to get out an Outfit first, since I am very behind and all. Today I woke up to lots of sunshine and it is warm and bright. I am happy for that as I think we are due for some sun & warmth after all the rainy, wet cool days of Mid to late May as well as the awful, cold, rainy April we had.

This is one of my most favorite outfits, worn this year by the way. Cute, comfortable, casual, chic yet dressy enough for work. I love it and I love all the articles of clothing that make up this ensemble. Plus, stripes and houndstooth are two favorite prints of mine and in this outfit both my stripes and houndstooth are subtle enough to create a neutral, sophisticated outfit. I hope you like it as well. Have a Lovely Tuesday Ahead!!
