Color Me Cool

Although the work week has just begun, it’s already getting really busy!  The next few weeks will be full of networking receptions, conferences, training classes, happy hours, and work trips.  With a more hectic schedule, it’s great that I can incorporate some casual elements to my work wardrobe.  For example, this bright and poppy fuchsia sweater would pair well with a dark knee length skirt.  Comfortable chic…a good motto to have!

One side note…I’m hoping all my friends out in the Midwest, particularly Chicago, are keeping warm in the freezing weather!

How was everyone’s Cyber Monday shopping yesterday?  Any good deals or steals?

All the sales can certainly be overwhelming, but one ‘rule’ of thumb is…you can’t go wrong with black and white!  This color combo will always stay timeless and classy.  Plus, it’s a great base palate to add color to – add a pop of color in your shoes, handbag, or jewelry.  If you ever get stumped as to what to wear in the morning, look to these two colors.

Happy shopping as we head into gift-giving season!  xoxo

Happy Monday!  Apologize for the brief hiatus here on the blog. Last week turned out to be super busy.

One big change over the weekend…I cut my hair!  I decided to chop it all off and go with an angled bob.  I’ve been feeling very refreshed and not to mention, washing my hair has been a cinch.  What do you think, good move?

Today, I’m wearing some new items.  I bought this Marc by Marc Jacobs blazer over the weekend and am so enamored with the bright red.  The contrasting purple lapel makes the blazer even more interesting.  Blazers are really a girl’s best friend.  Dress it up for work and then throw on some jeans before heading to dinner.

I’m also wearing a beautiful Timex watch, the Intelligent Quartz Fly-Back Chronograph.  It’s made with a stainless steel case, leather strap, and is just the perfect combo of sporty and sophisticated.  The bright, feminine blazer really balances out the more masculine watch.  Love it!

I hope you have a great start to the week!  Thanks for stopping by!  xoxo

Happy Friday!  Can’t believe we are on the first of November already.  I am loving this season’s plum/wine/oxblood color and recently purchased this amazing Loeffler Randall Rider bag.  It just arrived yesterday and as you can see, I am already in love!

I am heading out to Big Sur tonight for my first camping trip.  Very excited, but a little scared at the same time.  We’ll see how this weekend goes.  Check back soon for an update on my trip.

 

Have a great weekend! xoxo
