Saturday: Because these pants were so unusual, I had to have them. Not only do I love the ombre effect but the fact that they are covered from front to back in hummingbirds makes them a win-win. In order to “tame them down” a little, I juxtaposed their edgyness with a preppy v-neck varsity sweater. So unexpected but works well together. Keeping short for now. Gotta watch Mad Men. God Bless!

Monday: Headed out today to enjoy my day off from work and experience the wonderful weather we were having. Since it was so warm I just had to go barelegged! This is an old shirtdress that I purchased several years ago and just never took the opportunity to wear until now. You know me and multiples, so this little number has a twin that is a khaki/olive/burgundy plaid. I might pull it out this season or not. Not a regular post day but wanted to get these photos up on the blog so this post is short and sweet. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Sunday: This was my “Easter Outfit”. Not exactly Spring-worthy since the look is sans color. Actually, it’s not what I had in mind but since I had it out for last Sunday but the morning cold temps deterred me from wearing it, I said I might as well wear it today. Anywho, kept the look all neutral but juxtaposed the striped sweater with the leopard print booties. Some would say that stripes and animal print don’t “match”. And surprisingly, I would agree. They don’t match but they “go together”. It’s pattern mixing, like you would do with a top and pant or skirt look. As look as the colors compliment eachother, it’s appropriate pattern mixing. Ok, pattern mixing isn’t for the fashion faint-at-heart. It takes a sort of boldness that says, “I don’t care what others think of my outfit, I love it!” So if you want to dabble in pattern mixing, start out with basic colors (ie; black and white patterns) and then work your way up to more bold colors, if you like. Oh yeah, and the 90’s style choker necklace is trending again. They’re in alot of the stores if you want try it out. Of course, Forever 21 has very inexpensive ones. They have some great inexpensive jewelry that is very trendy and stylish but you won’t go broke or be too heartbroken if something happens to it. Later for now! God Bless!

Saturday: It was kind of nice outside so I decided to finally wear this robe-coat that I picked up last year some time. I was attracted to it because it was different, unlike anything that I usually find in the stores. The fact that it was hooded, it belted and had pockets made it an easier decision for purchase. The bonus to it all was that it was on clearance. Until next time, God Bless!

Sunday: Wow, I know, another post! Third one in two days! This is a record, I think. I guess you can say I’m making up for those times that I didn’t do a regular outfit post. Anyway, a little bit of Spring, a little bit of Winter. Still sporting sweaters and turtlenecks. Styled it with these crazy, psychedelic trousers (looking at them now, they remind of something Versace has done, print-wise). Found them while doing some browsing in a that I wouldn’t “normally” purchase from. But when I’m shopping I like to look thru every department because I never know when I might come across a piece that I find interesting. I like to take an unexpected piece and style it to my liking. So even though it may come from a section targeted towards a someone with a different style/taste then myself, I take that piece and incorporate it into my personal style. So these trousers was that piece for me. So much so that I also bought another pair with a different pattern and colors. So my tip for today is: Don’t be afraid to browse thru other departments of a store. Keep an open mind while shopping and when you find a piece that sparks your interest, style it to your liking. That’s what personal style is all about! God Bless!

Saturday: I know it’s Spring, but here on the East Coast, it still feels like Winter. Today was only in the 30’s when I left and pretty windy all day. So since it’s still so cold (we even had snow flurries today, ugh!), why not dress for the temperature and not the season. I’m not one to put away the previous season’s clothing so fast. You never know when the temp. may not be what you expect. I always have whatever the weather calls for accessible so I don’t have to hunt around for things. I know many of you may have already put away those coats, but not I. It is still so chilly in the mornings that a heavier coat is required, even though the temps in the afternoon may go up a little. Just carry that coat out with you instead of wearing it after work. I don’t know about you, but I don’t play with being cold. I’d rather be hot and sweating then cold. But that’s just me! Anyway, hopefully within the next couple of weeks we’ll be able to dress like it’s Spring. Until then, continue to style those Winter pieces and maybe incorporate your new Spring pieces that you are anxious to wear. God Bless!

Friday: Have you ever had one of those days where you didn’t feel like getting dressed but you had to because you had to leave the house? Well, this was one of those days. I didn’t really feel like getting dressed but since I had to, I wanted to be extra comfy. Everyone who knows me, knows that I love a pair of pajamas/lounge outfit/onesie. I live in one of these whenever I’m in the house! So when I came across this paisley pant set, it was a must have. It is so comfy and roomy, it’s just like wearing a pair of pjs. But as to not look like one of those people who actually wear their pjs outside (bad idea), I threw on this long cardi, some accessories and some creepers to show that I actually did make an effort to get dressed today and did not just roll out of bed and head outside. Thanks for reading! Until next time, God Bless!
