Last year I noticed my lack of color throughout my winter wardrobe, so it has been a goal this year to incorporate bright colors. It seems to help cheer me up when I walk outside and freeze my butt off! I wore this to go shopping on Saturday with my boyfriend. I ended up finding my NYE dress along with jewelry for the occasion. He walked out with a new pair of boots, two pairs of jeans and a Kenneth Cole watch all for under $70 (he had a pretty nice gift card there). It was fun to go shopping together, which we used to do a lot more often, but have been trying to save and spend money on more practical things. Considering we call the week between Christmas and New Years Christmas week, I think we justify our spending habits by assuring ourselves it is still Christmas time, and thus still okay to buy gifts for ourselves. How was your weekend? What is your plan for tonight?! No matter your plans, I hope you have a fun and safe New Year! Talk to you in 2013 🙂

Work UniformJuly 25, 2013 at 6:02 AM
[…] When I don’t plan my outfit out the night before I have a pretty easy way to get ready for work: collared button up + skirt + heels. It literally is my go-to on a whim and never fails to be professional and chic. I was pretty tired Monday when I woke up for work, so the easiest thing for me to do was grab a button up and skirt. I LOVE this bright orange blouse for summer and paired with this blue eFoxCity necklace and my new pumps from New York, I felt ready to conquer the day, and that’s exactly what I did. Oh and whoops, complete unintentional recreation of this outfit. […]
