Marooned




Happy Monday! I am trying to resist the urge to start off with a corny joke by asking "What's black and white and red all over?" But in lieu of a better opening sentence it will have to do. Anyhow, just threw this on last weekend when we were still in the depths of winter. The white jeans were a nod to spring which might have worked since the Midwest is finally warming up. Hope its beautiful where you are. Thanks for reading!

Festive





Any woman would agree that a birthday deserves a new ensemble so I indulged in this Cynthia Steffe sweater dress to welcome my last year in my twenties.  I always hope that mid-March will usher in spring weather but rarely does that happen. So I threw on my dress, nude tights and white pumps for a truly frigid photo shoot. As for the color coordinated balloons? I added those just because I'm happy!

Pink Snow






 
 As a fairly recent Florida transplant, these Nebraska winters take some adjusting! And by 'recent' I mean approximately two years ago but that doesn't mean that I don't long for better weather...
Enough about my winter woes, I figured I'd post these pics in anticipation of the expected snow tomorrow. Its calling for just a dusting but considering just yesterday was 80 degrees, anything at all is possible! Is anybody else cautiously unpacking their spring clothes but still keeping the winter coats and snow boots within arms reach?

Graphic



 
So can we all agree that it gets no better than black and white? I am slowly but surely coming to grips with my addiction to this combo, as I realize that the simplicity of B&W makes it striking, subtle, and graphic...all so effortlessly. Here's hoping I don't succumb to the next eye catching piece that crosses my path!

Eclectic


 So I can admit that this is an interesting dress. In fact, the contrasting patterns might even be considered kinda busy but I knew that it was definitely something I could have fun with. Paired with a waterfall jacket and slouchy boots, it worked quite nice for a Sunday date. Have a great week!
