Style Muse





                                                   Victoria Beckham












Here is to some weekend inspiration; I'm showcasing my one and only style icon on the planet! If you are familiar with my blog, you would have known by now that I rarely do posts on street styles or other TV/social media personalities. The reason for this is that I consider personality and lifestyle choice when looking out for style icons. I want my style icon to be a role model and a level headed human being...:-)


Well, here she is! Victoria Beckham; the beautiful, stylish, never smiling wife and mother of four..:-). This skinny lady sure knows what works for her. Her minimalistic style works all the time and she does know how to strike a pose or carry herself with confidence each time she struts into public. It does not matter whether the outfit gets a D- like that blue puffy peplum dress she wore with black booties, she always own her looks. I love her!!!!

Winter Casual; Sweater Weather


These pictures were taken on a very cool cloudy evening and the wind was brisk and gusty and it somehow felt like an evening in fall or early spring but it is actually still winter in Minnesota; 'very unbelievable weather. As I drove home from work, I saw some kids in shorts getting off the school bus and I just smiled. It was some sort of mixed feelings; I was happy that winter was becoming bearable and then I was a bit sad that there might be a great deal of truth to global warming after all (not that I really doubted it anyway). However, the meteorologists predict that real winter weather will be back next week.


Well, I decided to take some pics for the blog and I slipped into this casual outfit and I was able to get some pics before the sun finally went down. I just realized that I have not done a casual look on the blog in a long time. I got this purple sweater dress from T. J. Maxx years ago and it's usually in heavy rotation in the cold weather months. I usually wear it with tights or skinnies and the skinny jeans and booties I wore with it in this post were purchased from Victorias secret last fall. I just love the cute pockets on the sides. Sweater dresses are great pieces to have and they can be styled in so many ways.





                                                                                 Sweater Dress: T. J. Maxx
                                                                                 Jeans & booties: VS
                                                                                 Jacket: Wilson's leather



I'm very happy that the blizzard that was predicted to hit the north east was not as bad as it was supposed to be and I hope everyone is keeping safe and warm over there.

Yellow + Black






You've got to go put on your sunglasses for this one because this yellow might just hurt your eyes..:). This is yellow overload. I figured that I had not worn yellow in a while and since we are getting warmer weather now plus lots of sun, I thought it would not hurt to start putting on some color. I dug this wool jacket out from deep in the closet; previously too small because yours sincerely gained some weight...:-). After losing a few pounds, I decided to give it another try and there are some others that need to be tested out soon too...:-). Whatever does not fit would then go to the donation pile because I am ready for some spring cleaning..

It seems like spring is gradually around the corner though. We've been having this gorgeous weather since last week but I heard a rumor that it is related to global warming...**ssshhhh, let's not talk about that now please..** (whispering)






Jacket: old
Purse: Express
Jewelry & Pants: LOFT
Shoes: VS shoes
Sunnies: LOFT





This boxy wool jacket is so warm and comfy and I did not need to put on an extra jacket today. The colorful necklace was added on last minute for some extra pop of color. Did you do anything fun this weekend? Did you go to church or pause for a minute to give God thanks for his countless blessings? I have a music recital to attend this evening at my son's music school and I plan on wearing an all black outfit. What other color is most appropriate for a musical recital/concert? Any suggestions fashionistas? Can we follow each other on GFC (bottom of blog page) or Instagram? My instagram handle is; beautyojo.
