Outfit: Navy and Chartreuse

Uy6qcf88iwVYbwzBjdsXUrl3EB4c_34RSqXMhuRB3gAI love a good pencil skirt. This skirt is a staple in my wardrobe and I have had it for years. It looks great with cognac boots and a sweater in the fall, and I love pairing it with sandals and a blouse in the spring and summer.

Side note: This shoot was hilarious. It was windy- so my hands were always up holding my hair. vIxOJiUaU0FIkCTW39V7HmTk0VY8dXwtlzyFKII46eo rk1iUENqiZwurfE7dxHCD7LC8vO22blMj_WuvtZcQbs

So, this tree was BEAUTIFUL, but it also had bees flying around it the entire time I was sitting here. Let me be frank. I am TERRIFIED of bees and wasps. Notice my cautious look as I keep an wary eye on those little punks buzzing about. cR_v-S_iLhjFI7-Wt4dXiFU8i3STnXFcnX1WnimrMds

No kidding, I was preparing to bolt off of that bench and hightail it out of there if they came any closer.

Sigh. The struggle is real people. But have no fear, I sucked it up and finished the shoot. I’m sure everyone was real concerned, right? 😉 JEuD4HNcA9ZA9Bu_I8Xj0unAq87t7kHeTffpfCpeEIE LinPE2D7kru9TpRuIfggqVgjkrNsE8UpDi0_atK1svs

Shoes: Vince Camuto (Soooooo comfortable!)

My insect and wind drama aside, I really do love this outfit. It’s fun, but fairly modest so you can wear it to a wide range of occasions. Also, I love chartreuse. It’s such a vibrant color! It’s very spring/summery to me. Hmmmm… I might need to find a skirt with some pops of chartreuse in it. What do you ladies think? Do you have any of this lovely hue in your wardrobe?

Guy Friday: The Track Jacket

b0eea801263f38b98103c8fc751e6fff

So guys, GQ is finally on board with my lifelong obsession with track jackets. I don't know WHY I have loved these for decades, but I have. Perhaps it stems from my love of all things British- and those Brits love them some track jacket sporty style. Regardless, GQ has officially declared track jackets "in style" again. (In my world, they never left.) This should come as a happy revelation to all of the sports dudes I know that rock these things anyway, not attempting to be stylish. I'm just … [Continue reading...]

Red Nose Day!!

RedNose03

When I heard Red Nose Day was coming to America, I was PUMPED. As you may know I'm slightly obsessed with Great Britain. By obsessed, I mean I go there every vacation AND I have managed to convince my husband to get us a flat in London some day. I listen to BBC radio online almost every day and basically am convinced I was born in the wrong country. Tea, soccer (football), F1 racing, AND I adore rain. I love gloomy weather. I don't know why, I just do. That all being said, I'm fully immersed in … [Continue reading...]

Outfit of the Day: Casual Mom Style

Celfie05

Let's face it, not every day is going to be the cutest outfit ever. Some days (as you saw the majority of last week) the best I can muster is a t-shirt and jeans. I've come to terms with that. I also have expanded my t-shirt section lately because of this fact. This "celfie" shirt from Target cracks me up. It's a take on the designer brand Celine that has t-shirts exactly like this, but ridiculously expensive. The play on design and branding amuses me. And it was like $10 from Target, so the … [Continue reading...]
