I love these new Exact Stretch 5 pocket skinny pants from The Limited. They fit right between denim and dress pants and are perfect for casual but put together looks.

I’m ready for a hair change. I like the length but the color and the style need some jazzing up. Something a little sassier and more fun. Only a couple weeks left before my next appointment and I can’t wait to show you the end result.

Outfit: Say Yes to Yellow

Before I started blogging I would’ve vehemently stayed away from yellow. I was sure it would douse my pale skin with some sort of jaundice effect. I am glad I found a way to give yellow a try because I love it! Clearly it is also a reader favorite because it is pinned like crazy. Maybe you want to give yellow a try too so I thought I’d share with you some of my most liked yellow outfits. Go. Be Bold.

I spotted this House of Harlow necklace at Nordstrom quite a while back. Its $75 price tag scared me off but I never forgot its uniqueness. When I spotted it on Shopbop (other colors here and here) I knew I couldn’t pass it up a second time.

I was the lucky winner of a Brittany Fuson print from The Fashionable Wife. It was so hard to pick just one! After narrowing it down to my top three my final selection was Matching Stripes. Can’t wait to add this to my gallery wall.

Outfit: The Perfect Casual Blazer

I loved this blazer the moment I spotted it on Shopbop.com. It’s comfortable like a sweatshirt but has the structure of a blazer. The black collar and coordinating cuffs and pockets help to dress it up. The perfect blazer for the casual office.

Oufit: Teal and Black

Until I saw these pictures, I didn’t notice how cute and flirty this outfit looked. I’ve had the skirt and tank for quite a while but I don’t believe I’ve paired them together previously. The detail on the belt and simple accessories are fun touches without being overpowering.

Outfit: When Sheer is Classy

I swear this shirt would look good on anyone! It has the perfect shape that flatters your chest and disguises anything else. The fact that it is sheer adds extra sass but it can be toned down with jeans and heels or amped up with a sexy pencil skirt. Isn’t versatility awesome?

I have a little confession. I’m loosing my zeal for this blog. Several factors are contributing to this loss of focus. One, I started a business called Think Brite Be Brite and want to focus on making it a success. It’s focused on happiness and although wardrobe improvement and adding color to your life are two similarities between it and this blog, in most other ways, it is not related.

The second factor is no longer having a shopping budget. Yes, I could get thrifty but I lost my patience for that years ago and yes, it has been fun getting creative with my existing wardrobe but I do really miss shopping.

So, I’m trying to decide if I will keep this blog going in addition to the new business or if it is time to move on to the next chapter. What are your thoughts?
