About 5 years ago, I was introduced to the color brown. Oh sure I knew there was a color brown and I wore it sometimes. However, whenever I wore anything with color I usually paired it with black. Until one day I bought a brown sweater and started wearing it with blues and greens, etc. Now brown is a wardrobe staple for me. Do you wear brown?

Today I wore yet another scarf. They are just perfect for the type of weather we're having in the Midwest. Also, the way I am wearing my scarf today makes me feel like I am wearing a printed top or a really elaborate necklace. It doesn't matter that I am wearing all black on top because the scarf acts as my visual interest. A friend of mine asked me how I like to wear scarves and how to wear scarves when it's warm out. Stay tuned next week, I will do a post on everything scarves!
I apologize for how bad the picture is. I didn't notice when taking the picture how bad the lighting and the dust was!

I am a huge advocate for scarves. I have been wearing scarves for over 10 years. Not only to stay warm but to add interest to an outfit. Look at how boring my outfit looks without a scarf and when I add a complimentary scarf to it, it's much more interesting. Very subtle but more interesting. Do you wear scarves?

Well, I'm back in the saddle. I had a weird week last week and missed some days blogging. But I'm back, sorry for my absence! The weather here is still a bit cooler (which I secretly like) and so I wanted to wear jeans and a blazer. I am really liking mixing navy blue with other colors lately.
I also wanted to blog about this great product that I use on occasion. It's called Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. It's basically makeup that goes on your legs. Normally, I just wear self-tan lotion, but I forget how nice this Sally Hansen spray makes your legs look. For me it's not necessarily looking like I have a tan but to cover up my REALLY white legs and so my veins don't show as much. The best thing is it just washes right off!

Stripes are a complicated pattern. Especially for someone who has a larger chest. I have found some stripes work and some don't. But it all depends on the size of the stripes, the cut and color and the fabric. I recently purchased a Gap gray and white striped blazer. I really stepped out of my box here because normally I don't wear such light colors (I love me my jewel tones) and I am still a little new to the stripes world. I really like it, the blazer fits perfectly and I think the navy colored t-shirt I have on makes me feel more comfortable wearing something so light. What do you think of stripes? How do you wear your stripes?

Hello everyone! Sorry I missed yesterday, trust me no one wants to see what I looked like yesterday. But today is a new day, thank goodness! Even though my outfit is dressy and has a pop of color, I'm still crabby. A couple of my girlfriend's agree, it's been a crabby past few weeks. Hopefully, the start of a new month will snap us back into reality and we can feel fabulous again...because we are in fact fabulous. Are you crabby right now? What do you do to feel fabulous?
