Business in the front…

Shirt: Bordeaux, Pants: J.Crew, Shoes: J.Crew, Purse: LV (similar), Sunnies: Valentino
I love this top because it looks like a basic tee in the front but then the back has a sheer panel in it. Cutouts, open back, and sheer panel tops are big for the spring. I love this color gray too because it makes me look tan, which is not easy to do.  I LOVE the pants I’m wearing in these pictures.  The pattern is one of my favorites.  It’s so nice that it’s light out later now, but I need that hour back that we lost yesterday!

I’m so excited for the Super Bowl this weekend. Normally my husband and I have a party.  This year we are going to keep it low key and a friend of mine is coming for the weekend with her daughter.  We’ll just watch the game the three of us.  She is a really good cook so I know we’ll have some yummy food in order! Below I listed one of my new favorite recipes that makes a great snack for events such as this! 

The outfit I’m wearing above is totally something I would wear to work for a more casual day at the office. I love the two tone shoes because they add so much more interest to black pumps.  The top is a great weight for wearing this time of year and it is stripes so we all know that is right up my alley! I hope you have a great weekend everyone!

Pomegranate Seed Pretzel Dip


1 8oz cream cheese package
1/4 cup powdered sugar (start with a little less and then add more if needed)
1/4 tsp vanilla
Pomegranate seeds

Use an electric mixer to mix the cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. Drain the pomegranate seeds (I get mine from the Target produce section) and fold them in with a fork to the previous mixture.  Then serve cold with pretzel, I normally get the flat kind.  

Riding Boots…

This week flew by.  I had a sick kid at home a day and a half this week so that definitely added to the problem! Today I’m flying to Orlando to run a marathon and a half at Disney. I am running a half marathon on Saturday, followed up by a full marathon on Sunday. I am super excited but really under-trained so we’ll see how that goes. I might be a little bit crazy. I’m leaving my sweet little one at home with her Dad.  It’s going to be so hard to be apart from her for two nights.  The sweater I’m wearing above is something I wanted for so long.  I got it as a birthday present a few months ago.  I LOVE the Tory Burch logos on the buttons. It’s a great piece to invest in because it can be worn so many ways.  I love wearing it with jeans, dress pants, skirts and dresses.  It can really be dressed up or down.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Colorblock Dress….

I love wearing dresses all year round.  Gap seems to always have a cute dress or two every season.  I like this dress because it’s a great dress to take you from fall to winter.  It’s something that can be worn to work or just to grab dinner with friends.  Yesterday, as I was buying tights for my daughter I was thinking about how much I love tights and how you should start them young! With tomorrow being Halloween, just grab a cute pair of tights and stay warm girls!!!!

As stated in a previous post, I am a sucker for pencil skirts.  This one is from a previous season but I am waiting and wishing they will come out with more colors and styles.  I feel like it’s one of those items I would wear every week if it wasn’t so memorable.  I like it because I can wear it to work, dinner with my husband or for a more formal event. This skirt would be great for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday events you may have coming up.

 I generally like to pair it with black because I like the contrast of black and white.  I read once that if you want to look like you spend more money on your clothes than you do, wear a lot of black and white.  I’m not sure that’s why I’m always so drawn to those colors but it certainly doesn’t hurt! If you’re looking for a peplum top that will take you from fall to winter check out the long sleeve one listed below.

Pencil Skirt

Shirt: Halogen (similar), Skirt: Halogen, Boots: Tory Burch, Tights: Spanx Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: J.Crew, Nail Polish: Essie
I have always been a sucker for pencil skirts.  I feel really cute in them and they’re a great work look.  I think they look very professional yet still very feminine.  I love this one because it’s not so professional that I can’t wear it to non-work related functions. It’s starting to get cooler so you could always pair it with a nice cardigan.  Really, any color would work since the outfit is mostly black. If you’re not a cardigan gal, you could grab this top.  It’s really cute and has a zipper in the back that I really like!

My next goal is to wear more skirts. I LOVE pencil skirts.  When I worked in an office, I rocked them pretty much every other day.  They always make me feel good about myself. Do you have any clothes you just feel really cute in? I love these two items because they’re both made of a fabric that you don’t have to iron. I love because I don’t want to look like a hot mess or have to lug my big clunky ironing board out into our living room every time I wear them! I finally was brave enough to buy a peplum top.  It was kind of like a pair of skinny jeans, you just needed to try it once and then you were sold!  Did I mention that they are both on sale?
