It's the end of January, which means I'm getting excited for Valentine's Day! What can I say, I'm a sucker for commercialism. I love me some pink and red and hearts on everything this time of year. Whether it's Valentine's Day or Galentine's Day--or just a plain ol' regular day any time of year--these little pick-me-ups are sure to brighten up your day.

Work Style Wednesday: 70's Boho

boho 70's outfit

I was really excited about this outfit (I'm always really excited about an outfit), but sadly these pictures came out awful. I blame it on Suspicious Creepy Lady, who was just hangin' out by the area, just watching me...

(Almost) All Black


Me in all black? It's a rare sighting. I think it looks so chic and elegant on other people (like Rachelle of PinkSole!), but I don't really like it on me. Everyone knows I'm all about pattern and color, particularly one of my friends who just loves black. So I told her I'd wear all black for her birthday, which was last week. I (almost) did it! To me this is an all black look-- I just had to add some pattern in a light color to break up all the black! Haha. And of course, I went with a bag to match my gray cardigan.

Kid-Friendly in Polka Dots + Work Style Wednesday


Ahh, today was such a hectic day you guys!
I woke up 30 minutes late and had to rush through these blog photos. I couldn't get any detail shots (those always take me longer!) but I think you get the idea.

Fun and Modest

Bloggers: Ever feel like you've used up every possible title when creating your posts?
When I'm running low on creative juices I sometimes ask my cousins and friends for help naming my outfit posts. I got lots of feedback for this one, including something with the word "prints," A La Boheme, contemporary, and something with the word "perfect." I almost went with Complementary Crazy... because blue and yellow are complementary colors, and leopard on leopard might be a little crazy for some people. Lol... But I didn't think that was so great.

2014 Recap + New Linkup Announcement!!

So without further ado, here are some of my favorite looks and shots of 2014:

Hey, you made it through all my faves! 

It was a pretty good blogging year; I got 60 looks up (see them all here), compared to 42 in 2013 (my first full year of blogging). 

So far 2015 looks like it'll be very difficult to maintain the same level of productivity, but in the words of Barney Stinson: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! I'm really liking my new crazy job and I love blogging and I don't think I should have to choose between the two! I will do it all or die trying! 

Ok, so maybe that was a little dramatic. But I mean it: everything about blogging is so special to me, whether it's meeting fun, fashion-minded people, gathering inspiration from daily reads, or collaborating with other bloggers. 

So I am very excited to announce that Martha Palacios of Sun Fun Fashion and I will be hosting a weekly "Work Style Wednesday" linkup! 

Since Martha and I are both part-time bloggers with full-time careers outside of fashion, we thought we'd create a space that reflects our daily 9 to 5 dress code. And, of course, 9 to 5 (or however many hours you work) doesn't have to mean boring! We believe that fashion-forward and office-appropriate are not mutually exclusive terms. We created this linkup for fashion-minded women with professional or business casual tastes or dress codes at work; nothing is off limits as long as it's work-appropriate. And if you ask a blogger, "work-appropriate" can include color, pattern, texture, statement pieces, heels, flats, casual looks, refined looks, simple outfits, busy outfits. There are so many winning formulas out there! 

So we hope that you'll join us next week for our very first Work Style Wednesday and help us create stunning weekly collections of your best work looks. :)
