Happy New Year

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy new year!!!

Black & Deep Poppy

29 December 2012

Hello All!! Yesterday was a gorgeous day so, naturally, I couldn't wait to get outside to take these pics! I wore this outfit to a birthday celebration for my hubby. We went to a nice restaurant to enjoy a great dinner with some amazing friends. For the occasion, I paired this J Crew skirt in deep poppy with a black and cream silk blouse and a black cardigan. This skirt definitely made an otherwise ordinary outfit pop! I scored this skirt a few weeks ago during a sale. I found it on clearance for $24.99 plus an additional 30% off!! I don't have many bright bottoms in my closet so I was super happy when I found this in my size. I love color and the harsh, cold winter months have never deterred me from wearing colorful brights. This skirt is the perfect addition to my closet and even though it's bright, it's surprisingly versatile. It can be paired with neutral colors or, if you're bold, other brights. I chose to go the neutral route for it's debut but will definitely try some other colors in the future. I see this skirt becoming a staple in my closet. Bye, bye boring black and gray!

 Kudos to my husband for snapping these great pics!! He's getting better with his new camera already!

Wine & Navy

23 December 2012

Hello All! It's been so long! I must say blogging is a lot harder than I ever imagined. My main issue is finding a good time to take pictures, especially here in New York. The past few weeks have been so cold and gloomy. Not to mention that it starts getting dark at 4:30; that's hardly enough time to take pics when you work all day. It has rained the past few weekends, so I was uber excited to get out and take a few pics yesterday morning before heading out for some last minute gift shopping. I wore a silk ruffled blouse in wine with my favorite navy cardigan. Pairing it with jeans made this outfit casual and the pink necklace gave the outfit a nice pop of color which, unfortunately, you can't see in these pics. We're expecting a sunny week and I'm on vacation, yah!!!! So there should be a lot more pics to come..

Stripes & Gingham

03 December 2012

Stripes and gingham, what a pair!! Two of my favorite combos together in one outfit; it just doesn't get any better than that! I paired a red & blue striped sweater with a blue & white gingham shirt, jeans and riding boots. The look is super casual but still put together. The patterns are unexpected, yet, they work so well together. I can't wait to try this combo again with other colors!
