Show Me Some Color







Purple/Pink Blazer: Forever 21. Green Cardigan: Sarah Spencer. Green Croc Belt: thrifted. Black Mock Turtleneck: Style & Co. Print Skirt: Brown Croc Heels: Newport News.

I knew I wanted to wear color with this skirt, but I had to try a few things to make it work. I loved the color of the pink-y purple blazer, but it was just too bulky and closed with the puffed sleeves, structured material, and the closed neck of the mock turtleneck. I ended up going with the bright green -- but not to worry -- I'll find another option for the blazer soon!

Great skirt! It just sings "fall is here." I like both blazers with it.

Love your mix and match. Never head to toe in ONE BRAND.

You are a living proof of "looking like a million without spending a million."

Excellent job!

btw, I work in NYC and I commute in my flip-flop and big tote all the time.

Hi! My name is Angela. I live just north of you up in Dayton. I just started reading your blog and I'm getting some great ideas and tips. I really want to try and be more fashion forward, but sometimes I feel clueless. A couple quick questions.

1. Where do you get most of your clothes? Some of the brands you talk about I haven't even heard of so I'm not sure if they come out of specific stores.
2. How do you deal with the cold weather we get? Do you still wear bare legs? Do you still wear peep-toe shoes when it's freezing out?

Thanks for the help!
