OOTD: Color Me Rad!

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore to church earlier today.  As I said in my blog post yesterday, the world needs more color!  I loved wearing these pastels while there is snow on the ground where I live.  And, I received so many compliments on this look.  I am a huge fan of the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen collection offered at Nordstrom.  I hope that Blair makes another collection!  The pieces in the collection are SO cute, versatile, and unique.  The tulle skirt that I am wearing can be styled so many fun ways.  The skirt looks great with sweaters, graphic t-shirts, and blazers.

I have several more looks featuring this gorgeous skirt to share in the next few weeks.  This skirt is without question one of my favorite pieces from Blair’s collection.  The skirt pairs SO well with other pieces in her collection and with SO many of my favorite J. Crew and Madewell faves.

Friday Faves (A Day Late)!!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday! For the past few weeks, I have been a day late with my Friday Faves!  Fridays are flying by so quickly for me.  But, here are the pieces that I am currently loving.  I am all about adding color to my life on a daily basis.  And, I am not just talking about adding color to my wardrobe.  The world needs more color and diversity in general.  I am finishing a blog post about ways to diversify friend/social circles that I hope to share soon.  In the meantime, here is a look at one of my favorite upcoming outfits.  The pastel colors in this look are SOOO good! I have been SO into adding a wide belt to my outfits lately. In addition to cinching the waist nicely, the belt adds a fantastic accessory to any look!

OOTD: Mellow Yellow!

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore to church earlier today.  I LOVED wearing this look.  This coat is without question one of my faves.  It is a showstopper for sure.  I received SO many compliments on this look and this coat.  And, to think that I stayed away from wearing yellow for so many years.  New Year, new hue! I am typically a size 14 in coats depending on the cut and the style.  I took this beauty in a size 12.  I own the pink version and it is equally adorable.

Friday Faves (A Day Late)!!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy weekend!  Here are my Friday Faves, a day late!  I am loving SO many of the new pieces that have appeared on the J. Crew website recently, especially many of the Point Sur sweaters and blouses.  Moreover, I am loving many of the new items from the most recent Kate Spade collection.  As you know, I love bold pops of color and gorgeous prints.  So, here are a few of my recent faves.

These goodies came home to live with me!:

Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2019 is filled with blessings on top of blessings for you!  I do not create resolutions because I try to be a better person daily.  But, I did choose a word for 2019; it’s not a positive word per se such as believe or become.  My 2019 word is “refuse.”  I refuse to do anything that does not bring me joy.  I refuse to accept less than I deserve.  I refuse to let people take advantage of my kindness.  I refuse to waste time (I am rescheduling any appointments if the provider keeps me waiting 15 minutes past my appointment time).  You get the point!  I would love to know what you are doing differently in 2019, so share in the comments!

I also wanted to share a few great sales that are going on! J. Crew is offering 60% off of final sale; Kate Spade is offering 40% off of sale; Madewell is offering 40% off sale; and, Tory Burch is having its semi-annual sale with 25% off of sale.

Here are my Madewell picks:

And, here are my Kate Spade picks (I own and love these items).  A few of these items are not on sale:

Finally, here are a few of the Tory Burch pieces that I own and love:

And, this is just a reminder that Nordstrom sells J. Crew and Madewell, too.  So, if an item is sold out at one of those places, be sure to check the Nordstrom site.  This gorgeous coat, for example, is sold out at J. Crew at the moment, but it is in stock in all sizes on the Nordstrom website.  This is a great time to grab staples such as coats if you have been waiting for end of the season deals.  I LOVEEE the following J. Crew coats SOOO much:
