I'm glad I decided to take it easy from a clothes perspective on Tuesday - work was NOT easy, but wearing comfortable clothes made it marginally better. Plus, I just love this outfit. There's something about wearing good clothes that makes working on PowerPoint presentations late into the night more bearable.DSC_4228

Dress Well: Shimmer and Shine

Love the structure, love the subtle shine in the sleeves. I think that covers my outfit - aren't there more interesting things to talk about?

Oh yeah - how about the fact that it's Friday? In all honesty, it's been a pretty good week, but it doesn't mean I won't celebrate the weekend. I'm looking forward to time with friends and watching the Oscars - what will you be up to?

Have a great Friday.

Dress Well: Pattern and Spray Paint

I think that every printed item in my closet has been given to me by a family member for Christmas or my birthday. This blouse is no exception. I am awful at forcing myself to buy patterned items, and thus 90% of my closet is filled with solid shirts, skirts, and pants. When my mother-in-law gave me this beautiful blouse for my birthday, I instantly loved it - I got to add a printed item to my closet without having to shop for it! Win-win. Paired with black pants, black boots, and a messy bun, it was the perfect outfit for a Sunday evening date.

DSC_7974Despite being under the weather all day yesterday with an unpleasant stomach bug, I still managed to make time around my naps for some quality time with my husband, siblings, and the numerous family friends that come traipsing through our house on any given day. The holidays are truly the best time of the year.

Here's hoping that tomorrow is a healthier day! Enjoy your Tuesday.
