A Year in Review-My Favorite Looks for 2013

Good Morning Loves!  Since today is the last day of the year, I thought I would pick my favorite looks for 2013.  I have learned a lot over this year of blogging.  Being very new, I look back and see that I have learned to take better pictures and to make sure the sun is in my face and not behind me.  I have also learned that I don't have to put every picture up that I take, and that a lot of them weren't as good as I thought.  LOL...how tastes change over a year.  I have learned that you can see more detail the larger the picture....so those important accessories can be seen better.  I have also learned that quality is better than quantity. So, here is to a new year with an even better blog....I hope that this coming year is even better than the last!

Happy Monday!  I have been thoroughly enjoying my stay-cation and haven't been posting much because I have been so busy with the holidays!  I promise to get back on track over the next couple of weeks.  

This is an outfit I wore a few weeks ago around the Thanksgiving holidays.  That shows you how far behind I am on posts.  Anyway, it was perfect because being casual is a must around our families.  We are active and constantly on the go.  It was a mix of casual and cute.  I really liked the earth tones with the different shades of browns and green to top it off.  How do you stay comfortable but stylish during the holidays?

Good Morning Loves!!  I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and are enjoying the start of this beautiful weekend!  I will have a few posts from the Christmas season over the next few days.  These are looks that could be worn for the holidays, but can still be worn over the next couple of months.
For the look below, I needed to stay warm but also wanted to incorporate a sleeveless dress of mine.  This dress has no sleeves, but I wore a button down under the dress to add sleeves.  When I put the fur vest over it, it tied everything together.  I have been adding this button down to a lot of my summer dresses so that I can incorporate them into my winter wardrobe.  I like getting the most use out of my clothes and love to get creative by mixing them in different seasons.  How do you incorporate your summer clothes for winter?

What My Friend Wore to Work

Happy Hump Day!
This is my beautiful friend Rachael!  We were on a work trip together recently and we decided to take photos of her look to showcase on the blog.  She is decked out in J.Crew...one of our favorite places to shop.  I love how she paired orange with navy.  It's such a cute fall look and completely appropriate for work.  I also think the necklace really pops against the orange sweater.  Love her look!

A Couple of Random Things...

Good Morning!  I have some things on my mind that I want to share!!  Random things...
First, are you as excited as I am about Radiant Orchid being Pantone's Color of the Year for 2014?!?  I love pinks and purples and this color is right up my alley.  Green was pretty for 2013, but it just wasn't me.  I can totally do radiant orchid.  Below are some pictures from Pantone that I found that are so cute and get me in the mood to shop for these colors!
How cute are these cupcakes?!?
Which brings me to my next point....I can't wait for Spring!  About two months ago, I was so excited to have some cooler weather here in the south.  However, I did not mean cold.  I meant cooler.  Like highs in the 50s at the most.  Usually that's the kind of weather we have until January, where things start getting really cold.  Having cold weather now, in November and December, makes for a cold and long winter.  After New Year's, I will be looking forward to spring, where I can wear this beautiful new color and be a little warm at the same time!
Anyway, just thought I would add some color and warmth to the blog.  Even for just a day.  Back to the colder weather and layering!

Casual in Red and Blue

Good Morning and Happy Monday!  Can you believe that Christmas is only a week away?!?  That's crazy right!  I am pretty much done with my shopping.  I have some loose ends to tie up...but that's all.  I have a stay-cation coming up once this week is over...which will be nice to have some time to do some things that I have been wanting to do around the house, and time to spend with my husband.  

This is a look a wore around Thanksgiving.  I love casual looks just as much as I love dressy looks.  It's just so nice to me comfortable and cute at the same time.  With this look, I started with the shirt and matched pieces from there, like the red jeans and the blue vest.  Both of those colors are in the shirt.  I have been pairing these boots with almost everything lately.  I feel like they go with everything!  Ha....maybe I'm a little biased!  Anyway, I hope you have a great week!

PS-Don't forget to enter the giveaway in my last post!  You have three more days before the contest ends!
