Google Friend Connect!

You might have heard from other bloggers but here is my update ----- if you follow using Google Friend Connect, it's going away tomorrow. I have a link on the side to follow by email so that's an option. Other than that I am not so sure what the new following platform will be...I'll keep you posted!

That's right people---I'm in an outfit rut! I have spent a good portion of the night browsing my old outfit posts looking for inspiration. I think the majority of my dilemma stems from the internal battle I have with this season and weather. In my head it's February which means jeans, boots, scarves but realistically it's been 80* outside which means shorts, sundresses, and sandals. I'm already in a spring/summer state of mind. Today at work I was even looking at bathing suits!

This happens every year---September rolls around and we are still experiencing major summer temps here in Florida but all of the awesome bloggers I follow around the US are already wearing all of these amazing fall get-ups. I whine and complain about the heat desperately ready for the weather to cool and the boots to emerge. Then, in February when I should be still embracing my winter/fall accessories, it's 80's and all I can think are summer, skin, and beach!

Since I don't have an outfit to share, I am going to share everything that is on my mind...

I know I have no room to complain as the weather here is nice----hopefully your winter, where ever it may be, is mild and bearable. Any spring or summer items you are craving? Share please! 

Hope your week is going well!!!!

Outfit: A Little Bit of Neutrals

Hey guys! Today's outfit was all about neutrals. You guys know I work at a fashion retailer that has a company store at headquarters. I got these shoes for $6! I have had some really good luck with dresses and scarves but never with shoes. They usually don't have my style or size but this time all of these were in my favor. (They retailed for $98 or so)

Pants: Michael Kors
Tank: Banana Republic
Cardi: Ann Taylor Loft
Heels: WH|BM

Happy Hump Day guys!!

Outfit: Love is in the Air

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yesterday I was off from work and made my husband some great treats for Valentine's Day including cupcakes, danishes, and homemade potato soup. Hubs got me chocolates and roses. We typically don't make a huge deal out of this holiday since it's so commercial but a little something shows each other that we care and are thinking of each other.

Here are the strawberry cupcakes I made him (with homemade strawberry frosting):

In the spirit of the day, I decided to wear a little pink.

Jeans: Old Navy
Top: Banana Republic
Necklace: Charming Charlies
Heels: Betsey Johnson

I wish a great night tonight to you whether you are spending it with a loved one or just catching up on the Tivo or a great book.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Outfit: Navy and Mustard

Happy Friday! I love Friday more and more every week and this one is even better as I am off Monday!! This Sunday is my Half Marathon and the weather is looking perfect, low of 45* high of 55*!! I don't know if you recall my last Half Marathon but it was in Miami and the humidity was extremely high.

Outfit time!! I mentioned before that I love this mustard color and I think I love it even more with navy!

Dress and Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft
Boots and Belt: Banana Republic
Watch: Marc Jacobs
Necklace: Francesca's

I am getting my hair color touched up tomorrow and I am seriously considering bangs. Check out some of the looks I pinned here for bangs and give me HONEST opinions. I haven't had this type of bangs since middle school. I really love the looks but I am a little nervous about it. I guess I could always side sweep them if I don't like them! Help me decide friends!! Thanks!!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!

Nails: Longing for the Shore

OMG! I am tired! Believe it or not, I survived our year end close and the financial statement are on their way. Last week was exhausting and I ended up working about 60 hours. I spent this past weekend relaxing and enjoying my time to decompress.

I have always been a fan of Essie's Mint Candy Apple and was one of the people running to Ulta to get it the day it came out. A couple collections back, Essie released a similar color called Absolutely Shore. It's really close to the Mint Candy Apple but a little muddier if that makes sense. It's definitely light green but not sure a clean color. I really like this one and I almost think I like it more that the Mint one.

Have any of you tried this one? Thoughts?

I hope you guys are having a great week. Remember to check over at my other blog for random life updates.
