Purple and Pink

pink tee: Old Navy, purple pencil skirt: Express, pink and black heels: Liz Claiborne (Steinmart), scarf: made from headband materials

The Outfit Inspiration Calendar wanted me to dress like Carrie in honor of Sex and the City 2 opening and wear bright pink, purple and yellow.  In all honesty though, I wanted to dress a little more subdued and professional today (got a professional happy hour after work and didn't want to shock anyone) and it seems like I wear that color combination pretty often as it is, so I just stuck with purple and light pink today.

Summer Dress and Scarf

WEDNESDAY--Dress:Academy, black jacket: TJ Maxx, coral belt: NY&Co, white shoes: Payless
THURSDAY--Denim layered skirt: Ross, black and white shirt: Express, pink scarf: NY&Co., black loafers: Etienne Aigner (DSW)

The Outfit Inspiration Calendar called for a jacket/maxi dress combination.  Believe it or not, I don't own a maxi dress.  But this is the closest thing I've got, which I have never worn in any other way than over a swimsuit.  The little belted jacket dressed it up just enough. And, its not Memorial Day yet, but I don't care.  I broke out the white shoes a few weeks ago.


The Calendar said 2 out of three--denim, florals or polka dots, but I combined them all!

Monday and Tuesday

MONDAY:  printed skirt: Burlington Coat Factory ($16!), black tee: ?, black flats: Walmart
TUESDAY:  pink silky shirt: The Limited, brown pants: Old Navy (they're long enough!!), white cardigan: NY&Co., yellow heels: Anne Klein (DSW)

I loved everything about this outfit today!  We got invited to go eat dinner with some friends with this...much time before I was about to strip out of everything and begin the "relaxing" hour--I'm so glad I was still looking up to par when they called!  I felt so summery and fun all day!  And I liked my hair, too!

I like the combination of these colors today.  I feel like the white cardigan really grounds the matchiness of the belt and shoes (which I freaking love!), and I am really feeling the pink and brown combination!  I tried a new "twist" pony I found in my InStyle Hair magazine I bought.  I'm really trying new things with bobby pins...I'm pretty inept at hairstyles, so I'm trying!

Two Posts

Black Dress: Cato (Gift from Mom & Dad), beige heels: Bandolino (DSW)

I was a little self-conscious of the length of this dress all day, but I loved it so much!  The outfit calendar called for Earthy Neutrals, and that's exactly what the pretty neckline on this dress reminded me of.  And it was so comfortable for morning meetings!

Khaki pants: Victoria's Secret, blue button-up shirt: Old Navy, scarf: Dilliards, white tank: Old Navy, white flats: Merona (Target)
My pants look so wrinkled in this outfit, but I promise they aren't.  In fact, my gift for my birthday from my Grandma was a Rowenta iron, the greatest iron on earth.  The outfit inspiration calendar wanted a scarf with necklaces, and I usually don't wear necklaces when I wear these little neckerchief thingies, so I thought I'd try it out.  I like it!

Flower Brooch

black shirt: ?, black and white skirt: Express, red flower: thrifted (on ON jacket), black heels: Payless

I had to dress it up a little today since the "big boss" was coming in.  Thankfully, Kimberly's suggestion today was easy to incorporate into a dressier outfit.  I paired a red flowered brooch with a simple black shirt and classic black and white pencil skirt...made special by a special flounce!
