Outfit: Embracing Pink

348_HHS-colorblock-dress-outfit 348_HHS-colorblock-dress-altpose 348_HHS-colorblock-dress-altpose2 348_HHS-colorblock-dress-detail

There was a time in my young life when my bedroom was pink and girlie. After that, I’ve completely shied away from pink in my wardrobe and definitely in my decorating. But now she’s back and I have to admit, I missed her a bit. Yes, I adopted her close cousin, red, as my go-to-powerful-lady color but now I’m finding the softer side of pink just as powerful.

Yes, I’m cheating a bit since this dress also includes red but there’s nothing wrong with fashion training wheels!

I’ve had this shirt forever and I still love it. It’s so flattering and comfortable. The necklace was from my first Rocksbox. When I first saw it I didn’t like it but once it was paired with something I actually liked it more. You can still get a discount on your Rocksbox by using code “highheeledstylexox” at checkout. I’m also testing a free 3 month trial of Daily Look (follow the link for your free trial too!). I’m nervous to see how someone else will “shop” for me but I love getting mail so it’s worth a try!

Outfit: How to Say Goodbye

Dear Cardigans, we had a good run. Great even. You were a workplace staple. You kept me warm. You added color and you were sophisticated. But times have changed. I’m not the girl I was when we first met. These things happen. Everyone changes and sometimes it’s in different directions. You’re still everything you once were but I need something new. I need a look to fit with my new vision of self and as hard as I’ve tried I just can’t see you in this new role. I know you’ll make some other lady very happy. I’ll never forget our time together and perhaps we’ll meet again.

Outfit: Book Nerd

345_HHS-library-gray-black-outfit 345_HHS-library-gray-black-altpose 345_HHS-library-gray-black-detail

When I saw this shirt from Out of Print, I immediately bought one for me and for my bestie. She’s a writer and we’re both book nerds. One of my favorite childhood memories was walking to the library with my grandma. You were allowed to check out as many books as you were years old. Not that birthdays aren’t amazing as a kid but knowing I could get one more book every trip to the library (and pick out a free toy from Johnny’s Toy Store) really was the highlight of each new year.

These cute lace slip ons are from Target. Oh, Target you get us, you really get us.

As promised, I want to share with you something I’ve been working on over the past few months. It’s been my life-long dream to live on a ranch full of all sorts of animals. Now, it’s coming true! With the help of my best friend, we’ve started a non profit animal sanctuary named Lemon Ranch. I’d love for you to visit the site and help spread the word about our rescue. We are not only saving animals but also sharing the experience of animals with individuals who will benefit from their unconditional love.

We already have 3 wonderful animals at a temporary location. Our next goal is to find our permanent home. Stay tuned!

Outfit: Winter Sun

344_HHS-gray-black-outfit 344_HHS-gray-black-altpose

Although we get mild “winters” in So Cal, every now and then we get gray days that are perfect for cozy layering. I’ll use any excuse to wear these boots. I could hug them (maybe I do; don’t judge me). I think this scarf was from a Pop Sugar box and I love the variation in color. It adds some interest to the top portion of this outfit.

These Blank patchwork jeans are also very fun. Comfortable and full of visual interest.

Outside I went to take pics of this cozy ensemble and then the sun came out!

Believe me, I’m not complaining. I don’t miss crappy midwest winters at all.

I’m sorry to say that the exact pieces of this outfit are no longer available. This is typically the case with my outfits because I wait until things are on super sale before buying them! Shop the look:

Outfit: Nailed It

343_HHS-stripes-blue-brown-outfit 343_HHS-stripes-blue-brown-altpose 343_HHS-stripes-blue-brown-detail

Now this is the kind of look I’ve been aiming for since converting to a more casual style. The layering (with my husband’s shirt!) and this knit striped jacket look put together but not over done. Don’t you just love it when an outfit plan works out the way you wanted?

Now the question will be can I find more looks to fit my new vision of style without having to purchase an entirely new wardrobe.

Outfit: March Came Fast

Pay no attention to the lack of pedicure. My feet are still on their winter hiatus.

How did 2 months of the year go by already? I’ve been working on a new business launch and it’s been consuming my brain. I hope to have the website ready to share in the next couple of weeks. I can’t wait to tell you!

Thanks to the sweet and generous Patti from NotDeadYetStyle, I won this beautiful dress from Karina (exact dress here). I have been dreaming of a soft, comfortable polka dotted dress. Something with a bit of retro vibe but that would still work with my current, less structured style. Can you believe my luck?

This dress was everything I’d been looking for. They have so many easy and stylish options. Finding new places to shop is a great benefit of blogging.

How would you style this beautiful dress? I plan to wear it frequently so I’m definitely looking for suggestions.

Outfit: Life at Warp Speed

No posts last week. It just got away from me! But in a good way. I’ve been busy just living life. Not one thing took up all my time but instead lots of little things. Getting my husband to PT because he blew out his knee, household chores, horses, chickens, exercising – yes, you heard that right and of course some work.

Plus some TV watching and wine drinking. Dedicated blogging time just went out the window. The weather has been glorious so I try to spend as much time as possible outside.

The next couple of weeks will probably be much the same. I have a website to finish, a marketing calendar to draft and horses to ride. I’ll try to do better about outfits and maybe even some lifestyle content. Thanks for sticking with me!
