A Gray Leopard

Tuesday's are possibly the worst. Last week I said Thursday is my favorite day of the week, well now ive decided Tuesday's are not for me.

Why does it seem that everyone decides to go into work on Tuesdays but the roads are light Monday's and Friday's? Bizzare. The parking lot at work is always full on Tuesdays too, which stinks when you don't get "your spot."

But I digress. I also get to go right home after work on Tuesdays. And spend the night with the hubs watching TV. so it is not all bad ;)

Love this dress. A new favorite! I have visions of rocking it in the summer with some hot pink heels! It transitions for ev-er-ey-thing!

What's your favorite dress in your closet?

Denim and Daydreams

While I'm currently shoveling my self out of my house, I'd like to introduce you to my lovely February sponsor, Amanda from Denim and Daydreams!

I asked her a few different questions so you could get to know here a little better :)

Why did you start blogging?

I started this little blog as a place to collect my ideas and thoughts. My Pintrest account was becoming out of control, I needed a way to get all of it out. I love my job, but the nine to five was starting to get the best of me! This little piece of heaven on the web for me changed that. It gave me a spark! Instead of coming home and watching TV, I started to research post ideas, begin projects and meet new friends.

What do you blog about?

Anything! From fashion I love, what I have been up to, DIY fails etc. I don't like to label it too much so I can blog about anything on a whim! I guess a ʺlifestyleʺ blog is the best way to describe it.

Who you say is your "style icon"?

I love Lauren Conrad. I could switch closets with her and never hate a thing. She is so classic with just enough edge and on trend items.

We all have a go to in our closets, what's your FAVORITE item?

This is tough. I just love my closet in general! Some of my go-to's are:

`My LV bag. I bought it for myself when I graduated college. It is my fave.
`Levi's Skinnies in a few different shades. They fit like a glove and have just the right amount of stretch.
`Statement necklaces. I have started a collection!
`MK gold oversized watch
`Chambray button up: This is so versatile. I just love it.
`DV booties. Just a high enough heel that they aren't kitten heels. I can't handle kitten heels, they feel like cheating.
`Any of my flowy blouses. I wear them to work, with leggings, with jeans etc.
`Wide leg dark denim: perfect way to dress up a casual outfit.

I could go at this for hours.....

Bloggers are from all over, where is your bloggin hub?

Boston. The best city on earth :)

Tell us a little bit more about you :)

I am outgoing, ambitious and I don't take myself too seriously. So stop by and let's get to know each other!

You heard here, go stop by and say hi! She is adorable and has such a great blog! Thanks Amanda for sponsoring this month!!

Fashion Icon

I follow alot of blogs, I mean A LOT!

I take inspiration from all of them. But my one true fashion icon is Rachel Bilson. Yes, I have a crush on all things her :) I used to be a huge OC fan so when her new show hit the WB "Hart of Dixie" I feel in instant love!

The best part is she is a town doctor, so her show style is so "fun professional" which is just what I needed, some workwear inspiration. But other than the show, she has killer style any day of the week. So here is a post of my "Fashion Icon"!

Currently collecting fun and unique dresses and fun blouses. I love how fun each of her looks are and yet I could totally wear them to work!

 How about you, who's your style icon?

Red Lace.

When I first started this blog it was all for kicks and giggles and I grew to really enjoy it.

As I get more deep into where I want this blog to go I realize, nowhere really. It is still just for pure kicks and giggles. Its fun to meet and great all of you. To have a place to share what's on my mind, what I choose to leave the house in ;) what I am cooking for dinner!

Recently I think I have put too much pressure on myself to create something I am not in the mindset to create. I am obviously not the only blogger to go through these wonderful up and downs, but I am reverting back to why I started blogging, in it's purest form, Fun! The business side of blogging is fun too and I will continue to seek it out but I was putting too much professionalism pressure on my self when in reality I enjoy my day job and this is my fun side hobby - pressure is not needed!

So if you start to see changes around here, newer posts don't be alarmed! I'd love for you to all stick around!

This Saturday we had the Father Daughter Dance at church. It was adorable! I helped volunteer since the hubs pulled it all together, it was exhausting but so much fun! Kimberlee at "I Have a Degree in This" asked me the other day what I thought I would wear for valentines day, and this was the first thing that came to mind! It is fun and playful and the orange is a non-traditional valentines color that screams valentines to me :)

Remember the great debate about keeping this dress? Well I have since worn it once a week. It is sooo comfortable and I can't wait to transition it into spring/summer!

Simple Cords

Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I have made it home before it's dark out!

I embraced it and actually convinced the hubs to snag a few photos.

It wasn't a usually Monday. You see right when I was heading to a clients office at the end of the day, my window fell into my car door! It was 21 degrees and I had no window. Not fun. But I am looking at it positively  more time to spend with the hub, and home before dark, annnnd dinner before 8! *all smiles*

Sticking with the keeping it simple looks this week. Not sure why I am in this fashion mood.

Cords: JCrew
Sweater: Target

Also the winner of the Shabby Apple giveaway has been chosen, Congrats to Rachel!!
