April 1st

It’s April 1st and while there is still snow on the ground in good ol Wisconsin I can’t help but be hopeful for warmer days to come! I hope you guys have been enjoying this transition, I’m hoping it’s a home stretch for getting a few more wears out of those sweaters and boots! Move over winter, Spring has sprung!

Decided to have a little the riding world meets corporate. Decided to wear my black riding boots with a blazer and a long necklace yesterday.

I know I could have styled this a little better but trust me when I say I will be wearing this sweater again. When I was doing some fashion forecasting a few weeks back, I found that metallics are all the rage this Spring and quickly searched around for an affordable sweater that I liked. I do like trends because they open you up to more possibilities of something you might not have worn before but remember that trends are just that and don’t give in unless you really like it!

Sweater: Macy’s
Jeans: Rock & Republic
Shoes: Tory Burch

A great statement necklace really makes a difference. I like how the touch of purple jewels in this necklace stand out against the grey top.

Felt like being a little edgy yet still feminine. I paired a lace crop top with a black tank top to “winterize” this look.

When I’m not wearing black, or forcing myself to wear colors, I’m wearing a different shade or brown. Camel is one of my favorites! When wearing a monochromatic color scheme adding a pop of color always makes for a great fashion statement.

Here is what I’m wearing today. I’m coming down with a bit of a cold. I think all this running around, stress to be honest I haven’t been eating or sleeping that well so it’s all finally catching up to me. I found a comfy sweater and spiced it up a bit by layering a long-sleeved shirt underneath, I have been freezing since last night!

As you can tell from my style snapshots, my style really does vary! I don’t tend to give into labels and I’m not afraid to tell everyone I shop at Goodwill, all that matters is the final outcome and hey if my pennies can stretch a little further from it well it’s a win win for me!

Sweater- New York & Company
Shirt- Charlotte Ruse
Belt- Khol’s (check out the link on my sidebar!) They have some great sales right now!!

I know I have been busy lately, thanks for all the continued support. This little blog is never going anywhere I really appreciate all the positivity on here! Thanks for having a midday spritzer with me! A friend and I are thinking of starting a beauty channel on YouTube, the projects are never ending! I love everything I’m doing so it never feels like I’m always working with no time for myself because I love it!

Red Blazer

I had an amazing weekend! It was very productive. I’ve also been super busy with work, working out and a few side projects it’s all very exciting!

Today I wore my favorite blazer from Vivienne Tams line it’s so incredibly comfortable and goes well with anything, blue, black, gold it’s perfect. For the office I paired this with a pencil skirt and striped peplum top. The pattern adds a little variety which I think really brings this outfit to life. How are you guys adding variety to your wardrobe?
