I started this blog to help myself track my fashion evolution. I have gotten a lot of inspiration from other bloggers out there, and maybe someday I can do the same for someone else.

Flutter Sleeves

I really love the sleeves on this shirt.  They are just fun to wear.  I was very comfy in this outfit all day.

A Little Groovy

EDIT:  I just realized that this was supposed to post last week, but I still had it in drafts!

The print of this shirt seems a bit psychedelic to me for some reason.  I love it anyway.  The brown of the outline in the print exactly matches my brown slacks. The back of the shirt has some interesting gathers.  I'm not sure if I like them or not.  It doesn't matter either way if I keep wearing a cardigan over it.

This is the first time I have layered quite like this.  It is a sleeveless mock turtleneck under a v-neck sweater.  It actually worked out nicely I think!  I ended up changing shoes after I took this picture.  It was a bit too cold for exposed toes, but I wish I could have worn them.  They are purple snakeskin and I love them!

This is actually the first time I had worn tights since I was a little girl.  They always looked cute on other people though, so I thought I would give it a shot.  I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them if I didn't know if I would wear them or not.  I found some at Saver's (new) when they had their Halloween costumes out for $2.50 a pair, and bought a few colors to try out.  My hubby still isn't too sure about them.  I will get to the crazier colors a little bit later, but stuck with gray for my first try.

This whole outfit ended up very dark, but I like it anyway.  The top actually has very small white polka-dots on it, which I thought went well with my bubbly necklace

Keeping It Simple

This shirt is one of my favorites that I own.  I found it on a girls weekend up in Park City at the Banana Republic Outlet, which is about the only time I can afford to purchase their clothes.  I have only recently started wearing scarves, so I just decided to keep it simple.

Classy Country

This dress is much to short for work if worn as a dress.  As a skirt, it is just perfect!

Pattern Mixing

This is my first deliberate attempt at pattern mixing.  I decided to keep with neutrals to make it easier on myself.  I liked the look a lot more in person.  In the photo the gray in the vest doesn't seem to match the black in the shirt at all.  How can gray and black NOT match?  The mysteries of color...

On a second note, this pic is a bit out of order.  This was actually my last day at my old job.  I see a bit of trepidation peeking out of my expression. I also wore my sensible shoes because I knew I would be hauling boxes out to my car all day.

Sorry, again...  I think this is the worst one of the bunch. 

The gray tank is new.  I just wanted to wear something so you could see the scooped hemline.  I like the way it turned out!  Just the right mix of casual and fancy for work.

I bought this dress years ago in Las Vegas when we were there for a friend's wedding.  I haven't worn it much since then because the top is VERY low cut. I decided to go through my closet to see what dresses I had that could be worn as skirts, and this one was perfect!

New Beginnings

I wore this to the first day at my new job.  I found the cardigan on clearance and loved the lace detail on the sleeves.I also really liked the way my scarf turned out.  Sorry I didn't get a very good photo of it.  The tank top is really more of a reddish-orange, rather than the pink it looks like in the photo.

I'll Figure It Out

I've really wanted a lace shirt for a while.  When I found this one on clearance I grabbed it, but I still haven't totally figured out what to do with it yet.  This is the first time I wore it, with just a sweater vest over top.  I did get a couple of compliments, so I must not have done too bad for my first try!

Sassy Skirt

I read on another blog somewhere that Asos.com had started shipping to the US with free shipping both ways, so immediately had to go check it out.  They have so many clothes it is hard to pick just a few.  I ordered some things, and ended up returning a few of them, but it was so easy!

This skirt is one of the things I kept.  The pattern is a little more loud than I am used to, but I have decided that I need a little more of that in my closet.  Plus, it has a fun side-kick gather.  The day I wore it I got many compliments, and was told that I looked "sassy".

Quick Pick

I purchased this dress on a recent trip to Denver because all I had left to wear were pants and an unbreathing shirt and I was roasting hot.  I just ran into Target, found the first thing I saw that looked like it would work, bought it, and ran out.  I have been so happy that it was this dress I grabbed.  I love it!  The floral pattern just adds something that my closet was missing before.  The top is a bit skimpy so I usually cover up a bit when I wear it.

Out the Door

I love sweater season.  The main reason?  You can throw one on in a hurry when you're running late, and you still look polished.  This is the first time I pulled out a sweater this fall - short sleeves since it was still a little warm during the day.

Leopard Print

It took a while to work up to wearing this dress at work.  It is cut very modestly, but it is very skin-hugging.

I was hot on top all day.  I was wearing another shirt under the dress because the trim around the arms is very scratchy.
