Still enjoying every minute of my week off!  My husband and I took a ride down the shore yesterday to enjoy the perfect weather and do some maintnance to my mom's beach house.  I love going down during the off season ~ from labor day to memorial day ~ when you basically have the beach all to yourself!!


Winter Break

Jeans:  J.Crew, Shoes:  Chrisian Louboutin
I am off from work all week because it is winter break, and it seems as though mother nature has taken a winter break of her own.  It was almost 50 degrees early this morning when I went out to run some errands and this afternoon it's supposed to reach 60!!  I had to break out some of my new brighter spring clothes on this glorious day!


Boot Camp

 Coat:  Forever 21(last year), Pants:  AG via Anthropologie, Sweater:  Forever21, Boots:  Miss Sixty (old), Bag:  J.Crew, Gold Spike Necklace:  Fresh Grammar via Etsy, Ring:  vintage (via Mom's jewelry box!), Nails:  OPI 'Roadhouse Blues'

I love a great pair of knee-high boots, but have trouble finding the perfect pair to fit my chicken-legs.  I need boots with a very small circumference on the top (at an affordable price!).

This pair of Miss Sixty's are almost 10 years old but are still my favorite pair of all time - I think the opening at the top is like 13"!!!  They fit snugly with or without pants and they even hug my small ankles.  I have not found such a perfect pair since but the quality of the leather will allow me to wear them for years to come!


The Blues

Blouse, Cardi, and Skirt:  Loft, Belt:  Forever 21, Clutch:  Madison Elizabeth via Etsy, Tights:  Apt. 9 Kohls, Shoes:  Linea Paolo (old), Nails:  OPI 'Roadhouse Blues'

Blouse:  Loft, Jeans:  Citizens of Humanity, Shoes:  Nine West, Necklace:  Forever 21, Watch:  DKNY

The mid-winter blues finally hit this week and I can't stop dreaming of summer (especially the bright colored clothing that comes along with)!  I find my winter wardrobe to be a bit drab as far as colors go, so I thought I'd thrown in some pops of color this week to add a little pizazz.

I found this beautiful clutch on Etsy after being inspired by Crystalin.  You can visit the shop here ~ beautiful bags at affordable prices!



The view  this morning from our deck.  Hope everyone is having a great week - we are half way to the weekend!!



Blouse:  Aritzia, Skirt:  Bebe, Shoes:  Dolce Vita, Clutch:  J.Crew, Earrings:  Anthropologie, Sunnies:  Tom Ford

 I wanted to get in a quick post before the big game starts.  I wore this outfit recently to a Christening.  I LOVE this blouse.  The color is rich and I am a sucker for bows (although I have to admit I am HORRIBLE at tying them on myself - my husband tied it for me!!).  For work, I paired the blouse with some dark trouser jeans and kept the hint of leopard with a skinny belt.

Good luck G-Men - kick some Patriot butt!!


Animal Instincts

Blouse:  Aritzia, Pants:  Citizens of Humanity, Shoes:  Zara, Clutch:  J.Crew, Necklace:  Luluka via Etsy, Nail polish:  Essie 'Hot Coco'

Ever since I first laid eyes on leopard I have been obsessed with animal prints (maybe it's the Jersey girl in me!).  Snake is a great option for a more subtle animal(reptile) print.  I love these pants because they are casual enough for work but can still be dressed up, and the color is so neutral - they go with everything!

My new Zara heels were perfect for happy hour, but these were a much more practical option for work:

Shoes:  Old Navy (on sale - only $20!!!)
