Outfit: Comfy Casual

We are in year end close at work which means working late hours so I am going to make this short and sweet since I just got home a little bit ago. Some of you know I work at a fashion retailer. We have a company store on site that has some great deals. Everything is $6. I got this scarf there last week and love it! (and of course, it's purple!)

Jacket: Gap
Top: Banana Republic
Jeans: Express
Flats: RocketDog

I am off to let loose and rewind a bit. If you haven't yet, go to my new blog to check out my non-style related posts! Follow me there too! Have a great night.

Loving: Clutch

These past few weeks I have really scored some great deals between Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft, I feel like they are always running great sales. One of my latest purchases comes from Banana using a 40% off coupon plus a $10 rewards card I had that was expiring. 

I have been looking for a clutch that isn't too dressy to use for an average date out, or even an afternoon outing. I sometimes feel carrying an oversized handbag is a little much. I spotted this at BR a couple weeks ago and loved it so when I got the coupons---no brainer! 

I love that it's so lady-like. I really want to start carrying something smaller and I think this should be a good place to start. Any of you guys carry a clutch more often than a handbag? Share your links?

Outfit: Sunny Monday

Monday is over---the worst is over. Now it's that time where all of us patiently wait for the weekend. This past weekend I did a little shopping when the best friend was here and I got this great cardigan. I love this color and I have yet to purchase anything in it. I especially love the yellow with gray.

Jeans: Express
Tank and Cardi: Ann Taylor Loft
Wedges: Cynthia Vincent for Target

On a side note, I put a link to my Pinterest account in the side bar---follow me if you'd like and I would also love to follow you! Have a great week.

Finally Friday! Week in Pictures!

This week is over and all I have to say about that is thank God! I am so over this week that if I don't have a week like this one for years, it will be too soon. This morning I had a lot on my mind and as I was pulling out of my parking garage, I hit a car that was pulling into the condo. I was so focused on what I was thinking of that I was looking but not really seeing.

Luckily the woman I hit was so kind, she saw I was upset and was more concerned about me. She gave me a huge hug and told me she hopes my day gets better and to not worry about it. She may not have realized it but she made me feel so thankful that people like her still exist. Small gestures that really do go far.

I'm excited for this weekend, my best friend from Fort Lauderdale is coming to go shopping! I haven't had BFF alone time with her in about six months so it is long overdue!

Recap of my week in iPhone pics---

Running in 50* weather in shorts causes RED legs---took a while to warm up!

Look carefully, Fitz is waiting for us to eat. He was cracking me up!

My niece and her first time with pigtails! She's making a funny face too!

Homemade pizza, I even made the dough from scratch

Homemade goat cheese and chive souffle, they look a little deflated but they were tasty.

...and lastly, my scratches. Boo---we are thinking they may buff out but if not, we can just get the bumper repainted.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I am going to sit here and enjoy time with my family!

Love you all!

Outfit: Leopard and a Little Puppy Lovin'

Here is the scenario----about a month ago on lunch I decided to run to Target to pick up a few things. The first thing that made this trip a little different was what I spotted outside of the front door:
This poor little guy was tied to the post, looking so eagerly at everyone that passed by. I decided that if he was still there on my way out, he would be a new pal for Fitz.

Once I passed through the doors I did my usual rounds---makeup, nail polish, grown up fruit roll-ups, and ended up at the shoes (no brainer right!) I start perusing the isles and I was immediately drawn to a gorgeous red chunky heeled pump. I immediately put down my goodies, kick of my heels and try them on. At that exact moment I get a call from the hubs--figures right. I answer very innocently and after some banter back and forth, here is how the conversation went:

H: Where are you?
M: Target
H: Oh geez, what are you getting now?
M: Just some things I needed to pick up
H: Where are you right now?
M: Uhh in the shoe section? (notice the ? as if I was asking him where I was)
H: Put the box of shoes down
M: I'm not actually holding any in my hands at the moment
H: Take them off your feet and get out of there

Haha----he knows me so well! I reluctantly gathered my things put the shoes back and headed to the check out. (Update: the pup was picked up by his owner so no friend for Fitz). When I got back to work I immediately emailed my whole family informing them of these shoes as a Christmas present----lucky for me, I got them in red AND leopard! Woo hoo!!

Jeans: Banana Republic, buy here
Top: H&M
Blazer: WH|BM
Heels: Target, buy here

...and my favorite picture of all!!!!! My Fitzy!

I hope you guys have a great night---I have chocolate chip cookies in the oven so I plan on watching the Heat game and eating some yummy cookies!

Nails: New Combination

For the last couple months I have really been loving the one accent nail when doing my polish. It's just a little bit of something. My accent nail is almost always a glittery or more shimmery version of the color I am wearing. Last week this was my combination:

I love this combination, it's pretty neutral but still interesting. I think this would be even better suited for a summer go-to look. What are some great combination you have made?

It's Monday again and what's even worse than Monday is one where the weekend felt so short. I had a pretty relaxing weekend, just wished it was longer (who doesn't right). 

Have a great week guys!

Outfit: Me with my Pup

Fitzgerald decided to accompany me in my picture taking this week. He never just sits down and relaxes while we are taking pictures so these were a treat. He usually is so excited to see us home after a long day of being alone.

Working somewhere that really has a minimal dress code lends itself to sometimes get too casual. We are able to wear anything to work really and while I do work at a fashion retailer, I work in Finance (Read: people in finance typically are not the front of the pack when it comes to everyday fashion). I have noticed myself dressing more and more casual so for this outfit, I decided it is time to kick it up a notch.

Tank: Target
Cardigan: Banana Republic
Skirt: Express
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Headband: Old Navy

I love kisses from Fitzy!!

My next half marathon is four weeks out. It's the Rock n' Roll Half Marathon in St Pete. There are live bands at every mile mark and a large concert at the finish line. This week it was announced that the big concert at the end is Flo Rida. Yay! I really love all kinds of music so really any one they had I'd be thrilled but I am super excited it's Flo Rida. I love this recent song of his:

This morning my husband and I ran 10 miles in 50* weather. We assumed (incorrectly) that the temp would rise as the sun came up but no such luck. We were wearing shorts and no jackets. It was windy and cold and my poor body was freezing. Despite this, the run was great and I am feeling really good about this race!

I hope all have a great weekend! I'm just relaxing today and going to church tonight, maybe get some scrapbooking in later.

Vacation Pics - Colorado!

This is a little delayed but I have to share some pictures from when we were in Colorado. We visited Beaver Creek Colorado the week before Christmas. This is where we took our Honeymoon and this was the third time we visited. This place brings back so many great memories for my husband and me, always bringing us closer in the process.

Here are some pictures from our trip---

This was our Christmas card this year.

I was surprised there was a whole twig branch inside the icicle---so simple sometimes haha.

Gorgeous scenery!

Back to work tomorrow and I am a little bummed as this week should be super busy. No one likes to return to work after a holiday and especially if it will be busy! I hope you all have an easy breezy week ahead.
