Create28~Day 7 Pastels

rp_IMG_3971.jpg

My guess is that we all saw a few pastel-hued eggs this weekend...but I hope you aren't sick of this color palette just yet!  Pastels always seem so fitting when the sun comes out and the flowers start popping up.  And it seems for the past few years that mint has been one of the hottest pastels around. Up until recently, I only owned a mint necklace and belt.  I thought that it was about time to add this color to my wardrobe and I did so with the quintessential completer piece...a cardigan! ...

Create28~Day 6 Patterned Bottoms

Patterned Bottoms 2

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a lovely weekend and beautiful Easter. I am thankful to have taken Friday off of work and had a three-day weekend. The weather is beginning to be lovely and of course that makes it especially wonderful to be off of work. I had hoped to post an Easter outfit but I have not invested in a pretty Spring dress or skirt this year. Instead I am more or less combing an Easter look post with the patterned bottoms.

Denim - it works for every season and practically any occasion these days. I think there are so many ways to wear it that it has become the epitome of versatility. I'm trying something a little different here. A denim on denim look. I thought a denim button up shirt under a jean jacket would be fun. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not but I do. You should try it! Don't have a denim blouse? Try chambray as an easy substitute. I paired the denim with these peachy colored dress pants. Honestly, ... Continue Reading...

My Book Love

styleme bloggers 1 linkup

Blogging with my Style Me friends again! Today is one of my favorite topics - BOOKS! Truthfully, I have a deep love of books. Seeing them on the shelf, holding them, opening the cover,turning page after page...it never gets old to me. I love to own books. Sometimes I'm a better book owner than book reader though. I say that only because I never seem to finish all the books I have on my list. I have quite a few favorites in various genres but today I want to share a few books that really helped ...

Today I'm doing double duty!  I'm featuring my "Spring Jacket" look for Create28: Lovely Spring Looks with Carrie and it's my turn to "take one and pass it on" for Blogging Besties with Alex!

What's your go-to look for spring layering?  A trench coat?  A rain jacket? ... Continue Reading...
