Lazy Sunday

You need a lazy Sunday. I need a lazy Sunday. We all need one! The weather dropping to lows this week and doing insane snow things has made us all want to put on some cozy clothes and warm socks and just snuggle in for a spell.  Shopbop Finds: Monrow Sweatshirt and Boyfriend Sweatpants/Hanky Panky Signature Lace Bralette/Cashmere Socks (similar)/Necklace/Rings/Tom Dixon 'London' Candle I've been busy and in full comfort mode when it comes to clothes.  Unless I have to be out of the house and representing my business I am all about utility and practicality.  That means the activewear stays on longer, slip on sneakers are my BFF and sweatshirts are my JAM! I'm straight up OBSESSED with this one  because it is so soft. Plus, if I pull the hood up I can write and be all Evil … [Read more...]

How to Dress Up a Flannel Shirt

On Saturday I was out to lunch with my family, when a friend and blog reader came up to me and said that she loved my 'Holiday Plaid' post but when she tried to replicate the look at home it just didn't work out. How many times has that happened to you?  You see an outfit that you absolutely adore on a blogger and even if you buy the exact same pieces it just didn't look right for you.  What happened? I spotted this casual look from A Thoughtful Place through my link up and decided to replicate it at home. I added my own spin with a darker wash denim and was happy with it.  That's not always the case. It is usually one of two things. You are not that blogger.  Your body type is different. You are taller, shorter or a hourglass where she has a totally different build.  Trust … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Day Outfits

I had to do a few Valentine's Day outfits, I just couldn't resist. I love all the bright, fresh color that explodes all over what has been an incredibly gray and rainy winter so far.  I know I could use an infusion of some pinks, reds and a bit of sparkle too. My Little Mistress Valentine's Day Outfit board can provide it. It's short and sweet and totally complete.  Some bodycon dresses, a few pops of color with heels to dress up your favorite LBD (blace lace and curvy too) and a touch of glam as well. I'm always on the hunt for a place to find something beyond my mall.  To add a new place online that offers something different than my usual finds and places to shop. Little Mistress is where it is at this season. I'm besotted with their jumpsuits and their floral dresses for … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Gift Guide

I love all the pink puffy heart parts of Valentine's Day. The red decor.  The candy.  The pop of color in an otherwise dull winter.  Long ago, when I was in high school I created my own valentines and gave them out to my friends to help brighten their day. Now, I just hope that I don't eat all the chocolate that comes into my house via the kids. BUT, I felt we needed to address the V-Day Gift Guide sitch. This gift guide isn't about you or is it? Gift giving is about what the gift receiver wants. Honestly, Valentine's Day for guys? It's kind of a joke. It's lame. They don't care about shaving sets or candy.  Another pair of heart-printed whatever?  Nope. So, file this under racy and check out my picks from 3Wishes.com, a lingerie site that caters to a wide variety of tastes and … [Read more...]

What I Wore: Instagram Style

What I wore: Instagram version because I am F-O-C-U-S-E-D. Focused.  Goals mapped out.  Vision board created (yes, really), accomplishment notebook and pages are being written.  I'm busier and quieter than ever, social media-wise, but I'm feeling good.  I'm excited again and that in and of itself is motivating! Lunch with a friend and a side of networking.  Practiced my staging skills for flips too. It ended up being too warm for even the trench coat but I was overjoyed that I could drag it out of the closet. I adore this trench.  I have bought a few in the past and while I like them they don't have the liner, the shape and perfect khaki color that this one from Uniqlo possesses. Work out and get to work.  Those are my days now.  5-6 days a week I'm sweating to feel better … [Read more...]

Rent the Runway

I've used Rent the Runway quite a few times and it has never failed me. Whether it is a gala, cocktail party or last minute request their selection and customer service has always been on point. Even when a dress or two hasn't been available to me they have reached out via phone and email to make sure I was happy and offer up items that might work for me.  When that hasn't worked they have allowed me to choose multiple dress styles and various sizes to compensate at no additional cost. When H announced his winter work party would be in a week I had to fire up my Rent the Runway account again.  I chose a basic black lace dress by Nicole Miller. It has a long sleeves, which is perfect for Janauary temps, and the nude lining underneath holds you in to create a nice line.  After a busy … [Read more...]

But First, Gangster Rap & Some Activewear

But first, gangster rap.  Yup, that's me. When I'm feeling down. Gangster rap. When I'm feeling angry and like the world is full of injustice. Gangster rap. When I'm having a kick ass day and full of hustle?  Gangster rap, please. To be truthful, I'm just a hip hop fan all around.  Throw in some disco and funk and that's pretty much what makes my little musical world go round. So when I saw this shirt on Facebook I knew it had to be mine.  H gave it to me for Christmas and while I know I'll wear it under a blazer or hanging around the house or WHEREVER because I LOVE IT, it also makes a great activewear piece.  And really?  What's better to workout to?  Pop music? Not for this girl. I picked up these 3/4 leggings at Shopbop in December. I was feeling the red color hard.  They … [Read more...]

Cozy Post-Holiday Style

We are in that interim between Christmas and New Years.  Life slows down, we chill out with loved ones and we have a tendency to get cozy.  I know I'm totally feeling a cozy post-holiday style in this look. I picked up this sweater on a Target run. It's pale pink color and thick weave beckoned me and once I felt how soft it is I tossed it into the cart.  The OTK boots are me succumbing to a trend I was so resistant to until I tried these babies on.  Wow.  I love them.  Warm, comfy and a let's be honest, hot.  I'm SOLD. Paired with my BB Dakota Jack by Roddy leggings from Shopbop the 'Gisela' OTK boots are super fun to wear. I have rocked them with a sweater dress for an Ugly Sweater Christmas party, jeans and more leggings. I decided on these 'Gisela' OTK boots because I … [Read more...]
