Jacket - Candie's  - thrifted
Jeans - MMM Couture - thrifted
Shoes -Rocket Dog - Rack Room shoes
Purse - Isaac Mizrahi - old
Necklaces, earrings, silver bracelet - gifts

I bought this crochet top a while ago because I really liked all the details on it. I like to always try things on while I am in the store, so that I don't have to come back and return anything. That's one of the reasons  don't order a lot of clothing online. Being tall, 5'11, some clothing can be too short or fit me the wrong way. This crochet shirt is borderline too short for me, but I still got it. It a little too see-through to wear to work without a tank top underneath. Also, it's a little too wide, so layering it under the jacket and over a longer top worked in this case.

That's what happens when you celebrate two of your children's birthdays over the weekend and then get sick right after. I ran out of time to do any pictures this weekend, so I had to do them in the evenings. I was feeling a little tired and still sick that day.

I was inspired by a French style. Simple and chic. All of the clothing pieces in this outfit are very simple so the overall look to me is very elegant.

A Special Dress

Dress - Alfani - Macy's
Shirt - Champion - thrifted
Tights - old
Shoes - Unlisted - Shoe Carnival
Necklace - family gift
Earrings - old

This dress has a special meaning to me. I bought it about four years ago to wear on the day we were leaving the hospital after my first baby was born. I wanted to feel special and pretty leaving the hospital, after all, I gained a new title "a mother". I had more reasons to celebrate after my baby was born healthy and naturally. When buying this dress I wanted something loose but also something I can wear later to work. This is a first time I paired it up with tights and a long sleeve shirt under the dress. I have only worn this dress by itself before. The quality of this dress has help up really well. 
This is a first time we took outfit pictures inside a fitting room of a store as the mall was opening. Let me know what you think of them.

Winter white


Cardigan - knitted by my aunt
Jacket - thrifted
Pants - Ann Taylor Loft - thrifted
Scarf - old
Shoes - Sperry Top -sider - DSW
Stingray purse - family gift

The day I wore this outfit, the temperature in the morning was around 38F degrees (3 Celsius). I decided to do layers of white and creme clothing and this is what I came up with. This my first time wearing this cardigan. My aunt gave it to me a while ago, but I wasn't sure sure how to style it. In the 90's she knitted it herself and wore it in the cold Russian winters. I really think it's an amazing talent to be able to make such a beautiful, unique and a functional article of clothing.

Winter sun

Top - Fang - family gift
Cardigan - Cable & Gauge
Jeans - Mossimo - Target
Shoes - New Direction  - old
Necklace, earrings - family gift
Bracelet - Macy's

I started wearing cardigans somewhat recently, I would say the last couple of years. I am actually not sure sure how I was staying warm in these air conditioned walls of corporate Florida offices. But anyways, this is one of my first cardigans that I have ever purchased. I take breaks wearing it at times, but today I paired it up with a military color jeans and a floral top to soften up the look. I think I like it, what do you think?

Tropical paradise


Top - Cupio - Dillard's
Pants -Jones New York - thrifted
Shoes - Bob's - RackRoom Shoes
Necklace, earrings - family gift
This outfit is from last week and even though it looks like a tropical paradise outside, it wasn't exactly hot, not even warm, more on the cold side. As much as I like to wear heels, sometimes I like to take a break from them and wear flats. These Bob's by Sketchers were a December purchase, and I love how comfortable they are.
