St. Patrick’s Day

 Oh St. Patty’s Day…one of my least favorite holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for celebrating the Irish, I’m just not a huge fan of wearing green. Like the color brown, it just isn’t something you will see a lot of in my wardrobe. So instead of going out and buying another green shirt that inevitably hangs in my closet until it is donated, I figured I’d boycott the whole “green” thing and start my celebrations in this super comfy grey sweatshirt dress.
The thing I love most about this little number is you can wear it a thousand ways! It goes with any color, so if you want to pair it with a green button down, green blazer or even green shoes – you totally could! Or if you want to dress it down with flats or dress it up with heels – you totally could! Its versatility makes it a current staple for Spring, which is so close to being here I can hardly contain myself!!
What are your plans for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?!

Heat Wave

I am happy to report that Cleveland saw 50 degrees today! It’s like we sprung forward last Sunday during the time change, right into a heat wave…which in my opinion is the perfect trade-off for that hour of sleep we lost.
With all this sunshine, I can’t stop dreaming of summer…the beach…and all the adorable swimwear this season! I confess, I may have bought two new bathing suits already this week J But they were perfect…and brightly colored. AND really not that expensive! I swear!!
Which led me to today’s blog post – some of today’s top swimwear for every body type – and mood! Because let’s face it – while I’m dreaming of swimsuits today, I can assure you after two too many desserts or a good southern home cooked meal, I may prefer that full piece to a bikini…heck, I might even prefer a brown paper sack, but unfortunately those aren’t all the rage right now, so we will stick to the swimwear 🙂
Oh and don’t forget to copy and paste those codes for even more discounts.

Loungin’ Around

This past week has been blah…aside from catching up from being out of town all last week, Joe and I have not been feeling very well. That said, the Cleveland Auto Show began this week, so Joe has been swamped with work, meaning no photographer and a lot of time spent alone lol. So this weekend I took the time to do some bargain shopping for our new place in Chicago and scored some major pieces (aka = a perfect white and gold china set that I cannot even begin to describe my excitement over!).
Although I love shopping, my feeling of being run down kept me from getting too dolled up for the adventure. I kept it simple with some flats and these amazingly comfortable but contemporary harem pants that were at none other than K-Mart. I kid you not…I got these last year for less than $5 bucks.  Paired with a fun sweater and some flats, I was equipped to go from store to store yesterday hunting down the best deals.
For the record, it was almost embarrassing how many bags I carried inside our home yesterday…the saving grace was that my wallet was extremely happy and full…which is always a concern after any shopping trip 🙂
So what’d you do this weekend? Anyone else go bargain hunting?

Workin’ For The Weekend

Last week, I spent time in my office in Chicago for our annual Kickoff Meeting. This is certainly one of my favorite times of the year for my job, but it is also one of the most stressful. My colleagues and myself are going non-stop from the time we wake until wee in the hours of the early morning – hence my lack of posts last week.
As a woman, I hate being confined to the rules of business professional. Don’t get me wrong, I love blazers and I love black, but I hate boring old black suits. While designers have made huge strides in this area over the last ten years, I still try to follow the standard rules of dress when it comes to these meetings. Considering over half of our company is there, the last thing I want to do is stand out for all the wrong reasons.
Now this outfit may have pushed those traditional boundaries, but it’s stylish, still conservative and appropriate for business professional (depending on your organization of course).  
On a side note, Joe and I found a place to live when we move back to Chicago and should have everything moved and settled by early April. And let me just say, the place we selected has “perfect blog post pictures” written all over it! That may or may not have been why I selected it J Well that and it’s the perfect little place for us. Look for more on that in the coming weeks.
So what do you think of the look? Yay or Nay – you won’t hurt my feelings either way…that’s the beauty of fashion!
