I'm Still Here!

Profuse apologies for the unintended blog hiatus! With all the holiday hubbub, I just didn't find the time to take outfit pictures. Below are a few highlights from my holidays, tomorrow I will share some of my favorite looks from 2013, and there is much excitement to come in the new year! Thanks for sticking around.

Luxe Meets Lazy

I've been wanting to jump on the stylish sweatpants bandwagon for awhile now, and this was one of my first forays! While pairing my comfy pants with a tee, blazer and jewelry didn't seem too far-fetched, I opted with this outfit to take them into full-on evening territory with a beaded blouse! The jury's out on whether it worked, but I certainly felt both comfortable and classy in this get-up.

Groovy Girl

While my style always verges on vintage, I try to include at least some modern elements. When I found this little embroidered mini dress, though, it was just begging to be paired with a '70s yellow, and the flower child accessories were quick to follow. Sometimes it's fun to travel back in time for a day!

Merry & Bright

From the sweet floral print of this babydoll dress to the bold yellow of my go-to statement necklace, I can't say no to pops of neon. While the colors might be a bit springy, there's nothing wrong with adding some bright spots to a dreary winter day!

Mix & Match

When I layered on all the different pieces of this look, I felt a little crazy...three colors, two patterns and both casual and fancy components. It felt right though, and seeing the head-to-toe ensemble, it looks right, too!
