I have this top for a few years now and I’m still tickled each time I wear it with it’s simple but flattering details. It’s a little bit sexy but also sweet. That’s a hard combination to find! Overall the outfit is a little darker than I envisioned but it was still a good choice for a client presentation.
Speaking of work, I’ve been so busy lately. It’s a good thing but I haven’t had the time to play with my creative projects. I’m behind on blog posts, I’m behind on some work and on last week’s full moon trail ride, my horse clearly demonstrated that I haven’t spent enough time with him either. Oh, he was so naughty.
And when are we going to put up the Halloween decorations?
Who’s going to pull the weeds in the back yard?
And the list goes on…
I did, however, find time to go to Planet Beauty’s 25% off sale. A girl has to have her priorities.
Am I a shallow person because these shoes made me happy? I don’t think so. It’s not like they solved every insecurity I have or cured my depression but they make me feel fortunate and sexy and stylish whenever I look at them. That has to count for something, right?
They were stupid expensive and if it weren’t for being a Shopbop affiliate, I would never had the opportunity to try on, let alone own a pair of couture heels. The leather is dreamy. The detailing divine. Are the more comfortable than any other pair of heels? Of course not. But strutting around like the CEO, creative genius, golden hearted, mega-liked woman that I envision in my head is SOOOO worth it.
Is there a lesson in all of this? Maybe. Don’t be afraid to make a ridiculous decision to spoil yourself.
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.
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.
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.

It doesn’t take long before my old friend red + black shows up. Although I have learned to do a better job of combining colors, this is still a classic, favorite, go-to, guarantee for me. Do you have a classic combo that you love to repeat?
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.

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?
