Dreary day, Lace Top

blouse: Express; pants: NY&Co.; maryjanes: Nine West

Another dreary day in Texas with ominous clouds across the sky. Extremely humid which made for frizzy hair, and I haven't been feeling well lately. :(

I bought this top at Express. It's silk which I love and it has lace on the top and the bottom, very feminine. I wanted to wear light pants because I was tired of all the dark colors, so I found this pair of NY and Co. that I bought a while back. Unfortunately, they don't have pockets so I had to carry my iPhone with me all day. I have these Nine West suede maryjanes in several colors. Love them! I had a long beaded necklace on with this outfit but I took it off during lunch and forgot to put it back on. Hmmph!

Memorial Day

silk blouse: F21; skirt: Express; wedges: Steve Madden

I was having a bad hair day and make-up day, but I still really liked my outfit today. I was trying to find a way to wear red, white, and blue without being too bold. After trying on a couple of white blazers, I remembered I had this blouse and thought it went perfect with the skirt. The wedges kept my feet comfy after walking around all day.

I attended a touching Memorial Ceremony today honoring our brave soldiers. I also remembered my grandfather who was a war veteran. Thank you to all our troops for all that they do.

Lady Like

Wrap blouse: Express; slacks: NY&Co.; heels: Betsey Johnson; pearls: Gifted

There's something about wearing a set of pearls that just makes you feel very lady-like. I have this wrap shirt from Express in several colors. And these blue satin heels put a kick in my step. They have the cutest pink soles.

It was so humid today I had to put my hair in a bun to avoid the frizzies, since my beloved blue Chi flat iron died on me. The on/off switch just broke off. So sad! I'm using a huge old one from Sally's. It just doesn't have the same sleek effect, plus it takes forever to heat up. Guess I will be on the hunt for a new flat iron.

Flower Power

Skirt: Old Navy; blouse: Express; Shoes: Steve Madden; bracelet: F21

Sorry for not posting in a looooong time. I've been super busy. I'm trying to incorporate more prints into my wardrobe because I tend to go for solids. This skirt intrigued me and I thought the design on it was beautiful. Perfect for the warm weather!

I had to do a close-up of my bracelet because it has such a great whimsical appeal that it brightens my day looking at it. My hubby joked that it looks like a crystal ball. Too bad it doesn't really reveal the future!!
