Yesterday was probably the first day it finally felt like spring to me. It got up to 50, the sun was out just long enough to put a smile on my face and I was more productive than I’ve been in months on a Sunday. I worked out, got groceries, made lunch and then threw dinner on in the crock pot, did a load of laundry and showered (YAY!) When I was getting ready I was in such a good mood, I just felt like wearing something that really reflected how I was feeling. No, I didn’t really have...
I hope you are ALL having a a very Merry Christmas full of love and cheer! Have an amazing day and best wishes to you and your family and friends!

Something about this outfit reminds me of Fruit Stripes gum… the stripes part is obvious but I think it is the colorful packaging that completes that idea in my head. Anyway, wore this on Sunday to watch the Bachelorette finale with my friend! There is nothing better than my yellow scarf to add some color to an otherwise simple outfit. I have worn this scarf on many occassions and it is one in my collection that works for all seasons.
My work uniform during spring and summer almost always includes a pencil skirt and pumps and when I need a little something extra, I go for a bright patterned shirt like this one that I recently found at H&M. Layering a couple necklaces and adding a bracelet, it is an easy, comfy ensemble that wears well throughout the work day! Happy Friday Eve everyone!
Clothing is often like photographs… they bring back memories and take you back to a place and time that maybe you have not thought about in awhile. This outfit is what I wore five years ago on the trip home from my five month study abroad experience in England and Wales.
When it comes to work wear during the transition from winter to spring, I seem to have my own fashion transition with a shift from skirts to pants. This usually happens because I get sick and tired of wearing tights. And I know a lot of fashionistas hate wearing tights, but I really do love wearing tights… so when I get to this point I am so ready for bare legs. Although the weather has been significantly warmer lately, I’m still not sure that it is “bare legs season” yet in Minneapolis.
