Blues

In years past, I haven’t typically had a lot of blue in my closet.  But this season, it seems to be a color that I am really gravitating towards.  And this dress from JCPenney, has been a staple in my closet this spring.  Not only does it work great with a cardi or denim jacket, but now that the weather is warming up, I am loving how it looks paired with a denim vest.

JCP

I was recently asked by StyleWatch and JCPenney to participate in a blogger challenge.  And I happily obliged!  I was given a $50 gift card and tasked with putting together a whole outfit, or selecting a statement piece to build an outfit around.  And let me tell you, it was really fun deciding which option to choose.

It had been a little while since I had been into a JCPenney, and it was a really positive experience to get to reacquaint myself with the store.  But more than anything, I was pleasantly surprised to find a cute brand called Belle + Sky (TM).  I ended up trying on armfuls of adorable things (I had to make 2 trips to the fitting room!), but ultimately settled on this hot pink moto jacket.  It was originally $100, but was on sale for 40% off, and I found a coupon online which placed it right within my budget!  So that was a huge score.  I also ended up picking up a couple of other cute dresses (on my own dime!) that I ‘ve linked below!

If you all haven’t been into a JCPenney lately, then I would highly recommend going.  And while you’re there, be sure to check out Belle + Sky (TM).  Their entire Spring line is just darling and really reasonably priced!

Have a great weekend!

Working Girl

Happy Friday, sweet friends!  I hope you have all had a great week.  I was on the road for work, so despite my best intentions to get some blog posts up and running, my nights were spent getting caught up and prepped for meetings.  But today, I’m back!  And I am excited to share with you a typical outfit that I would wear to work.  Because I am on the road so much for my job (you can read about what I do here), on planes, in cars, and in and out of Executive meetings, I am always looking for work appropriate (and fashionable) outfits that are also super comfy and practical.  The Express Portofino shirt has become a staple in my closet (it comes in TONS of cute colors and prints), and I love pairing it back to simple black skinnies, basic jewelry, and a fun pump or heel for a little pop of color. I have found this to be a great basic formula for an easy wear-to-work outfit that works for just about any occaision.  Not to mention that this combo also looks fantastic with a blazer for a little more dressed up look!

Fashion Fusion

I had such a fantastic time at the Fall Fashion Fusion event at Fashion Place Mall last Friday.  From the red carpet arrival, to the VIP treatment, and all of the goodies c/o Fashion Place, I felt pretty darn special.  And not only that, but show was fun and inspiring and of course I always LOVE seeing the designs created by the students at the Fashion Institute. And with that, I thought I might end the week by sharing some photos from the evening with all of you!

White Out

I love wearing white in the summer time. It looks so crisp and fresh and is the perfect complement to a sun-kissed glow. And while it seems obvious to gravitate towards white pants, shorts, and dresses, I think a white skirt is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. It’s a versatile piece that can easily be dressed up (with a silky blouse) or down(with a fun graphic tee) and transitions perfectly from day to night (think blazer for the daylight hours). Plus, it’s the perfect canvas for accessorizing with a little sparkle and a splash of color…

Back At It

Well hello there, my lovely readers! After a brief little blogging hiatus, I am back! And can I just say that last week was an absolutely crazy (and wonderful) one for me? Between a work trip to San Francisco for our Vendor Summit, a birthday celebration, and a nice long weekend spent in my favorite city by the bay (packed full of my favorite activities), I think my head is still spinning!! So since I’m slowly, but surely, getting back into the swing of things, I thought today was the perfect opportunity to keep it short and sweet and share with you one of my favorite color combinations ever-pink and navy.

Can you believe that I stumbled upon these darling wedges at JCP of all places?  I had actually seen them in a magazine and wanted to check them out in person since I was a little unsure about buying a pair of shoes from Penny’s.  And while I have to say that I wasn’t expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised by just how cute they are in person, the quality, and the amazing price (under $40!!).  They are definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe this summer.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
