Gingham Blue on Blue

Hi all,
Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I haven't been wearing many new outfits lately so it's been hard for me to find material for new posts.

However, the outfit I wore last night included a new shirt I purchased recently which means a new post!  The "new" gingham printed top I purchased is Joe Fresh from JC Penney. I paired it with my cobalt blue skinnies, a multicolor J. Crew statement necklace from last season and tweed brogues from Forever 21(also from a past season):

Been kind of busy this week, but thought I'd take a moment to put up a post.

Last Friday I went shopping for a dress for a wedding I was attending and this is what I wore:

Gingham for Summer

Hi all!
It's been awhile so I suppose it's time for a new post!

Up until last week, I has maybe 2 new things for Spring/Summer, but that all changed when I went shopping while my car was being fixed because of a recall.  I bought two Joe Fresh gingham shirts at JC Penney, a hat and denim overalls at H&M, a madras plaid shirt, maxi dress, and white shorts from Old Navy.

Last night I decided to break out the coral colored gingham shirt, but since the AC is cranked at work, I layered it under am old J.Crew Factory shell, and paired it with dark grey riding pants and Cole Haan ballet flats.  What do you all tbink?

Pink Pencil + Chambray (What I wore to work)

Hi all,
Ugh I need to go to sleep but wanted to post really quickly what I wore to work the other night.  It's finally Spring, so in trying to squeeze in all the skirts and dresses I can before it's cold again.

This time around I chose and old J.Crew Factory pencil skirt, an old (but still available) J.Crew Factory chambray shirt and layered on a gold statement necklace from Francesca's Collections.  The black tights are from Target and the shoes are Ferragamo.

What do you all think? ;)

Finally Dress Weather (no sweaters required)



Hi everyone,
Happy Tuesday!  I am glad to announce it is finally warm enough to wear a dress outside without needing a sweater or cardigan!  It has been a long time in the making.  Those of you living I the Midwest region probably know exactly what I'm talking about.  I even had the heat on a few days ago, and yesterday I turned on my fireplace, and if you look at photos of trees I took around my yard, you can see that most of them don't even have leaves on them (it's May 20th)!!

I am hoping Spring is finally here, especially since Summer is only a month away!

On to the outfit post.  Today I wore a Forever 21 maxi dress with my orange J. Crew Factory necklace and paired it with an orange Longchamp clutch my boyfriend gave me (and picked out all by himself...I was impressed).

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a good day!

My First (and only) Spring Purchase

Happy Monday,
I hope you all are settling back into your normal routine!  How was everyone's weekend?  

I would like to share with you all my first and only Spring purchase for the year.  I was shopping with one of my best friends about a week and a half ago, ans we stopped in this store called Len.  I actually found quite a few items I thought were cute, but only walked out with one item: a sheer floral top.

I decided to break it in by wearing it to work with white pants, a mint Francesca's Collections necklace, and Navy sneakers from Target (old).  What do you all think?

Pink and Flowers

Yay for Friday!
Who has fun plans for the weekend?  I don't because I'm working, but I hope you all have fun!

Last night when I went to work was the first time I was able to wear a light jacket instead of my Burberry quilted coat.  We are making progress!

I really need to go shopping for some Spring/Summer clothes, but in the meantime, this is what I put together:
