Working and Coyotes Adventure





Dress & Leggings-H&M
Vest-American Eagle
Scarf-Forever 21 (gift from Best Friend)

It was a beautiful day of filming today. One where it was cold unless you were in the sun. One where the expanse of soft grass was so inviting for a nap (no, I didn't take one. I was working after all). One where I needed to bundle up because, per usual, I get cold. Fast. It's basically my Monday (my work week starts on Wednesdays) and the two C's were at the top of the list. While I'd like it to be calm and charm I was plenty happy to settle with Cute and Comfortable.

P.S. After working around the natural wildlife around, I took a break before driving home to take these pictures. At that moment there was a coyote scavenging around right by me. Did it phase me? Nope. Taking pictures with a coyote roaming around me just a few steps away means he thought what a weirdo and I thought oh well, hi coyote!

Recycled Outfit Adventure





Shirt & Necklace-American Eagle
Skirt-Forever 21
Hair-Separated into 3 sections then twisted into buns. Middle section braided then twisted into a bun

In trying to manage a packed schedule of filming and blogging the pictures get taken and sometimes not posted. Then sometimes I wear the same outfits and don't take pictures. So guess I'll have to use the old pictures. Obviously this is one of them. 
There are days when comfort and ease are a priority. Layer the skirt, throw on an oversize shirt and tie it. Done. A new favorite that gets worn very frequently.

Music Monday

Well, last week almost took me out. As in falling asleep while laughing at a comedy show. I think all the hard work paid off. Now it's time to start again. Let's energize with a song for the week. I know we have had the new year with new starts but for some reason I'm feeling a new start this week. Hence the song. And yes, there may or may not have been dancing in the trailer while doing my work. Let's face it, there always will be.

McQueen Inspiration

Fashion collections are, often times, beautiful but not necessarily practical in cost and style. While it would be fun to go through my day in huge tulle dress it just won't happen. So what to do with the collections? Two options: stare longingly at it, then promptly forget it or save the particularly inspiring ones (Pinterest if you don't care that everyone sees it or your computer so you can surprise people with your fashion-forward creativity) and create something that fits you. It might not be a hit every time but that's ok, keeps you on your toes. 
Let's take a look at one such collection, Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2013

 I don't know how and when these pieces will influence my outfits but they will. It's an elegant, streamlined, with a twist of Baroque influence style. Basically, things that my style gravitates towards (at least for right now).

Sweater, Clutch, Shoes: H&M
Jeggings: American Rag (gift)
Necklace: gift from my sister (she made it!)
Hat: Gift

Late night and fitting in blogging with a ginger and honey latte in hand. Sleep? I'll get to it. Just like I'm slowly getting to the backed up outfit pictures I have been accidentally storing. Let's talk 20's. Fashion of the flapper age is experiencing a renewal of sorts. Designers have sent it down the runway, Gatsby is coming out, etc. etc. I think I'm going to enjoy it...maybe. Just dipping a toe in for now with this 20's inspired hat. It could end with a jump into a flapper dress!

Music Monday

I need to be super productive this week. This means there will be loads of music to keep me going. It's time for a classic...with big hair.

Birthday Adventure

Dress: LC by Lauren Conrad
Socks: Kohl's
Boots: Target
Headband: Forever 21
Purse: H&M
Necklace: Gift from my sister

A random warmer day for my birthday enabled me to wear less layers. That makes me happy. A lot of things make me happy, especially on my birthday. Going out for lunch with my sisters and a friend deserved a cute dress. Let's be honest, even if it was cold I'd have worn a dress, call me old fashioned.
Cute dress, good food, lovely company...good day!

Birthday Present

I meant to post this yesterday, as it was my birthday. But due to the usual busy birthday shenanigans I love, I ran out of time. Here is my present to you: a little humor to brighten your day. This 30-something second video is so choice! It's your un-birthday present (clever Alice in Wonderland reference there). Enjoy!

Music Monday

Hello dear readers! It's the beginning of my birthday week! Since it happens to fall so soon after the holidays my friends generally are super busy and still getting settled. This means my birthday celebrations can take place over months...and months. I don't mind. It's a great excuse to get together with friends. The older I get the more I appreciate my close friends and learn about myself. Hence, the song for the week. And yes, this song is frequently played in my car and sung to very enthusiastically. Have a great week and thanks for reading!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, dear readers! I hope you are just as excited for this new year as I am. 2012 was filled with challenges and learning experiences. More than I liked, to be honest. But all the hard work and sacrifices are going to pay off in 2013. I can feel it! (I'm also going to make it all work) Of course there are resolutions to be made. My biggest one is going to be focusing and enhancing the blog! Do you have suggestions? I'm open to everything you have say... 
Cheers to this new year! May it be a happy and wonderful year for you! Thank you for coming along for the ride on this blog and now on to a new year!

Thanks for reading!
