Why is leopard the new go-to accessory? I find myself trying to work it into nearly every outfit. After seeing this pin, I had no choice but to recreate it.  I mean, how could I have ever question the combination of floral and's my new pb&j.

I'm wearing:  all thrift except the shoes which were from a Vegas tjmaxx.

sunday inspiration

While everything is inspiring about Blake Lively, I'm in love with the maxi skirts and dresses.  Possibly because April weather is giving me whiplash with occasional warm weather and cloudy, overcast chill.  For those of you live in windy weather, the longer skirt is a lifesaver.  I've had too many Marilyn Monroe moments in the last two weeks...and it was not sexy.

printed pants

I have yet to find a pair of printed pants in stores.  I know H&M had some great ones, but their availability of sizes are scarce and bizarre.  I have decided that if the fashion gods ever smile on me, I would wear printed pants more simple on top...pattern mixing those gems will take some courage and strategy on my part.  Baby steps.

lace skirt

I have lace skirts and lace tops that have not been properly utilized in my outfit coordination.  So if you have pictures of a lace crop top, meant to fit loose style suggestions, I'm all ears.

summer lovin'

_JNW1711-1 _JNW1762-1 _JNW1733-1
Yes, I've been MIA when it comes to blogging. Would it help if I said I was in the middle of changing jobs?  And unfortunately, the new job is not professional blogger/shopper.

For some reason I've been wanting to dress like school teacher lately, which is only indicative of this post and the outfits that don't make the cut.  I have a tendency to get on "kicks."  I think I'm about to move into a denim cutoffs phase.  Hopefully, it translates as summer-festival-chic rather than "what animal got a hold of her clothes?"

I'm wearing:  dress/shoes/belt/jacket (thrift); bag/leather necklace (h&m); green pendent necklace (xxi?)

Mint + Maxi + Grecian style + title that magically references food.  Best blog post ever.

It's 8pm in the middle of the work week; succinct is key.

Wearing:  maxi (old navy); necklace (honey rose&k); shoes (thrift); clutch (h&m)
