Many options

Dress - Express - thrifted
Top - Port Authority - work provided uniform
Shoes - Adrienne Vittadini - Ross
Earrings - family gift

I love it when I purchase items that are dressy but can be dressed down or dressed work appropriate. This Express pink tube dress was originally purchased for a friend's wedding reception, but since then I have worn it several times to work and still have several ideas in mind on how to make it versatile each time. The length of this dress is great for wearing this dress at work as well.

Far from uniform

Dress - Isaac Mizrahi - thrifted
Top - Port Authority - work provided uniform
Shoes - Report
Leather purse - old
Sunglasses - Victoria's Secret - family gift
Necklace - from Russia - family gift
Earrings - old

This blue button down blouse is provided by our company to wear for conferences and meetings. The logo is on bottom of the sleeve, so I rolled it up and you can't see it, some days I prefer it this way. It give this shirt some versatility. The cotton black dress is so simple, that you can combine it with so many different tops or jackets. Another work day, another work outfit. To add some visual effect to the outfit I added tribal print d'orsay flats and black an silver accessories. Work appropriate but far from being work uniform.

Life goes on

Top - Eyeshadow - Macy's
Skirt - Gap
Shoes - Adrianne Vittadini - Ross
Watch - Marc Echo - Kohl's
Necklace, earrings, sunglasses - family gift

I love blogging and it has become a part of my life now. Some people like watching movies, or their favorite TV shows, going to the beach, reading novels and the list could go on and on and on. I have found my new hobby, which is blogging, hearing back from my readers and giving back to my readers. My everyday life goes on, which means some days I am taking pictures right before cleaning the pool or swimming in the pool with my kids. I am loving it though right now.

Amber on my mind

Top - Spense - Marshall's
Skirt - Exact Change - thrifted

Happy Monday!! I love how this amber necklace stands out against the dark blue colored top. The skirt also has those orange colors in it which pulls the outfit together. Here are other three times I wore this skirt here here and here . Which one is your favorite look?

Same size

Top - American Dream - Ross
Jeans - Forever 21 - family gift
Shoes - New Direction
Necklace - Burlington Coat Factory
Ring - family gift
Earring - old
Bag - family gift

Happy Sunday everyone!!! I love doing clothing swaps with my sister. I have never had jeans from Forever 21, so this is my first ones from there(thanks sister). For some reason I always end up with tops from there. I have to say they are pretty comfortable. I love how my necklace pulls everything together.

Two belts

Dress -thrifted
Shoes - Mia - Macy's
Earrings, bracelet - old

Happy weekend everyone!!! I wanted to try out the two belt look, I have seen it on the runway and fashion magazines. Since my shoes have both white and gold colors in them, I figured it would be great to use both of those colors by wearing gold and white belts. I really like the result. I also think it helps to break up the really colorful dress.

A little short

Dress - Calvin Klein - family gift
Scarf - family gift
Shoes - Restricted - TJ Maxx
Earrings - coworker gift

If the dress is a little short, then I prefer to keep it covered on top for a work appropriate look. Scarves can help stay covered up as well. Another day, another work outfit. Friday is almost around the corner.

Stripes and florals

Top -Cotton On
Pants - from Russian market
Jacket -Sele - Macy's
Shoes - Bandolino - Marshall's
Earrings - old
Bracelet, necklace - family gift

Each clothing item in this outfit is more than three years old. I got these pants in Russia I would say seven years ago,  prior to having kids. The jacket was purchased about six years ago in New York at Macy's, the blouse is closer to three years old. Even though I have had them for that long, I don't remember ever putting them together prior to this. I love shopping in my own closet, you never know what combo you going to discover.
