Leather Skirt + Leopard prints







Happy Tuesday Friends 😆 last day of February today; how amazing. My five years blog anniversary is around the corner and I am super delighted. It's been an amazing five years of writing and publishing in this my space on the internet. I have made lots of blogger friends along the way and I look forward to making more. I'll continue to blog and publish for as long as my passion and creativity allows because it is such a fun hobby.


My outfit today is just simple and casual; a black leather midi skirt, tan color turtle neck top and leopard print pumps. Spring is around the corner and it is time to get out the leather apparel. I purchased this faux leather skirt from Loft a couple years back and it is sold out already. Leather skirts are fun addition to a wardrobe and can be worn to cool events like ladies night out, sports games and for casual days at the office when accessorized with a great pair of pumps. What is your thought on leather clothing pieces? "Yay or Nay?" Thank-you for reading.

Spring Trend: Dramatic Sleeves




Just when we thought we have had enough of "off -the-shoulder" and "cold shoulder tops;" the drama around ladies necklines and sleeves continues. Spring 2017 trends showcase ruffle sleeves, bell sleeves, trumpet sleeves; it's all about drama! drama!! drama!!! What say you? "Yay or Nay?"

Graffiti print shirt + wide leg Pants








Happy Thursday Friends; just another quick post here of work wear for transition weather; now that spring is around the corner. Tie neck blouses are trending this season and if you want to join on the bandwagon, there are so many selections to choose from. I purchased this printed one I'm wearing in these pics from Target a long time back and the pants are from Loft. I like the splashy prints and colors on the blouse and the blush tones makes this totally appropriate for spring. This blouse can also be paired beautifully with pink and white colors and this outfit is suitable for work, church and other formal events.


I'm really so glad that tie-neck blouses are trending now because it is so modest and chic. When I was growing up, tie-neck blouses were considered to be shabby and matronly and worn old by the old folks and religious fanatics and most young ladies would not be caught wearing them. So, hurray! to this trend that shows you can still look chic and put together by wearing nice and modest clothes.

Pink Blazer + Cropped White Denim



 



Happy Wednesday Friends; I hope your week is going great; spring is just around the corner; time to get out the colors. Hot pink is a color that is trending now and I decided to pair this old thrifted blazer that has been in my closet for a while with this white cropped denim pants from Loft. Pink can be paired beautifully with black, white, blue, emerald and a few other colors. Pink and white screams spring to me and paired with my emerald green block heel pumps; I think this is a combination I'll do over and over in the spring and summer. What are your thoughts on wearing pink color? I know some ladies outgrow the color and don't wear it as much. Well, I did not wear much of pink when I was younger; so, it's about time I indulge 😋 Thanks so much for stopping by.

Grey Culottes + Stiletto heels






 
Happy Tuesday Friends; just a short post today to celebrate the warm weather; it's like having summer in the middle of Winter. The weather today is 50* degree plus which actually is summer weather in Minnesota. We are so used to our cold and frigid weather and below zero temperatures in Minnesota that any double digits temperature is regarded as great weather. What better way to celebrate the beautiful weather than to wear culottes?


This tailored and structured one is actually very great for work. And again, what better way to wear a pair of culottes other than pairing it with great high stilettos? This helps to formalize the look and to elongate the legs. Culottes are actually not work friendly in a corporate work environment but if you work in a less formal office environment or your own office/ business, go for it. The denim culottes is another option for casual wear and Spring 2017 is going to showcase the culottes for both work and play. What are your thoughts on culottes? Yay or Nay?

Cobalt Blue Pant Suit + Blue floral Pumps









Happy Monday and Presidents day Friends. A lot of mixed feelings about President's day this year but when it comes to wearing the color blue, I absolutely do not have any mixed feelings. It is a color I am starting to embrace and explore. Several years ago, I never would have thought of wearing a blue color pant suit but I started taking fashion risks over the past years and last summer, I put this cobalt color pant suit together which are actually separates; the blazer is an old thrifted piece  and the pants is an old purchase from Jcrew. I paired the look with my white blouse from Ann Taylor and accessorized with a pair of blue floral Nine West pumps to get a full blue outfit. So much dose of blue medicine to get rid of the Monday blues; Enjoy the rest of the week and thanks for stopping by.
