Light and Lilac

Blazer;skirt: Express; shirt: The Limited; necklace: F21; wedges:?
So I've been trying to spice up my wardrobe a bit and try to create outfits that I normally wouldn't wear. I've really been loving the idea of splitting up my suits and using my blazers to complete an outfit. So with all the rain, the temp's been a lot cooler and I've been able to wear blazers with a couple of outfits. I was surprised at how chic they can make a simple outfit look. I have a lot of blazers, a lot, for work, and the other day I found the one I'm wearing from Express with the tags still on buried deep in my closet. It has the coolest leopard print pattern on the lining. I ripped them off and decided to wear it with this silk skirt that I had also never worn. I was very pleased with the results! It's still been pouring like crazy, so I wore the wedges that I didn't mind sacrificing to the rain and they also gave me some lift in avoiding puddles.

Ruffles and Pearls

blouse: F21; slacks and necklace: Express; shoes: nine west

I finally mustered the energy to post a look. The weather has been crazy here, guess I underestimated our Texas weather :), and I've made it home drenched a couple of times running to my car after work in a thunderstorm. That and life has been keeping me pretty busy. I hope to make some time more often to post and check in on all the fabulous blogs that I've come to love that make me oh so happy! I hope everyone has a great week!
