October and November 2014 Reflections and Top 3 Looks.

I know today is the last day of January and I have already posted My Most Favorite Looks of the year last year (1,23 and 4.). But for almost 2 years now I do a recap/reflection of each blogging month. Mostly about my style from that month but also a little review of the month in general. Due to the holidays and trying to post several looks that hadn't made it to the blog (I am always behind), recapping the last 3 months of the year were posts I skipped. Today I am covering October and November. In a couple of weeks I will cover December and January.

Anyway, first we have October. I posted 26 times in October. I started off the month posting the last looks of my late Summer 30 for 30 Challenge. That 30 for 30 had indeed 42 Outfits I came up with altogether, but due to my lap-top breaking down, I was only able to post the first 35 looks for that challenge. Altogether this month I posted 26 Outfits, lots of which featured Pink since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I di…

Casual Layers in Red Buffalo Plaid and Snow Leopard.

Since today is Friday, I wanted to show you a couple of Very Casual Mom Outfits left over from the end of December. And yes, these were worn on a weekend, spending time with Vivian, around the house, grocery-shopping, at the local coffee shop, etc. And as you can tell from the last few weeks I have done my share of Plaid and Leopard lately. I love both of these Patterns so much and I am happy to wear more Plaid and Leopard like in today's post. Happy TGIF everyone!
Here I wore some comfy Black Jersey Leggings with my go-to Booties - the Black Leather pair I added to my closet last Fall. I layered my Red Buffalo Button-down with a 3/4-Sleeve Cream Sweatshirt which has a Floral Lace front part. It is hard to say but it has a large number printed on the front over the lace, making it a little more Sporty. I dressed it all up with a Silver Statement Necklace. Red+Black, Buffalo Plaid, Long-Sleeve Button Down Shirt: Terranova (New) (very similar, comes in red or blue, love this), (very …

Pinspired: Leopard, Blue Denim and Black.

I have been so addicted to Pinterest especially in the last couple of months that I have been pinning away and pinning away. There is so much great fashion, so many stylish inspirations and so many great blogs out there. What I need to do more of is actually re-create some of these outfits that truly fit my style and for which I already have the items in my own closet. So when AUDREY of Putting Me Together announced some fun fashion challenges this month (one weekly) I decided to follow some of "her rules" and do these challenges whenever I could.  This week is all about re-creating an outfit you pinned. So, just recently I pinned this outfit (which you see below on the collage) from Fancy Stuff and Pretty Things, and I of course had all the pieces to re-create it and wear it to work. Ashley has great style and she is a Michigander (my second home).
So, couldn't I think of this outfit of my own? It is simple enough plus black, leopard and blue denim are of course all neu…

Valentine's Work Outfit Ideas.

I wore these work outfits to work sometime last week, keeping in mind that Valentine's Day is coming soon. I wanted to show you 2 (very) subtle ways of how to dress for work with a little nod to Love or VDay. These are two simple but chic Work Outfits that have some type of Valentine's Day detailing to them. =) 
Both times I am wearing some type of Pencil Skirt and a Blouse as a Top. Once I layered with a Blazer and once with a Cardigan. Another thing each outfit has in common is Textures. With the first Outfit (below) there are Sequins on the Cardigans, Chiffon and Silk on the tiers of the Blouse/Shell, the Skirt is Ruched, the Tights are also Textured and Printed. In the second Outfit, I am wearing my Tuxedo Blazer which has a Faux Leather Lapel, paired with the Mixed-Media Heart Blouse and a Corduroy Skirt.
First, I want to apologize in advance for all the photos featuring this first outfit. They came out really dark and grainy. I need to invest on a pro camera. Gosh, I wis…
