Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! By the time you're reading this, it's most likely snowing quite a lot here in Connecticut...again! Apparently spring didn't get the memo that she was to arrive yesterday. March always seems to lend itself to being one of those fickle months that's just too unpredictable anyway. I, of course, am not wearing this outfit as we speak, it's what I wore yesterday. These are the loafers I was telling you about in Monday's post that I've been obsessed with ever since I got them about week or so ago. 

I know this may not be a color combination that most would eagerly embrace, since it can have that late 80s vibe, but I absolutely love the look, especially the camel and green duo. As I mentioned Monday, upon purchasing these loafers, I've challenged myself to step outside of the box in regards to color combinations and have found that it's a shade that pairs beautifully with quite a lot of colors, which I'm excited to work with for the season. 

The fact that they're pointed toe makes me love them all the more because they do so much for the leg, creating a nice slimming and elongating effect. I've done away with all my rounded toe flats and shoes, for the most part, because I've found them to be unflattering on me; they can make the legs appear shorter and stubby, particularly if you're bottom curvy. When working with a bold colored shoe or print, you want to ensure that it flatters the foot and entire leg. At the same time, rounded toe shoes can also be quite flattering, if you have larger feet and are self-conscious, since they can make the feet appear smaller. It's all about finding what works for your figure and what you feel most confident in.

How's the weather where you live, is it looking and feeling like spring? If so, enjoy it on my behalf ;) Thanks so much for stopping by, my beautiful friends, and I hope you have a great day!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

As for today's outfit, it features a color that I'm absolutely loving for spring this year, green. To be honest, I never was one to embrace the color. It never really spoke to me, until the past couple of years, but more so these past few weeks. I had a few pieces here and there in my wardrobe, but was never all that eager to style them as frequently as my other vibrant colors. I think it all started with this BLANKNYC jacket I scored a couple of years ago during the NSale. It, unfortunately, doesn't seem to be available, as I scoured the web in hopes of finding it to no avail. However, I was able to hunt down an incredibly similar style by Levi's

Happy Friday friends, 

Well, where do I begin. 

It's been what seems like forever since my last blog post and a lot has transpired since then. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you know that we lost power for four days, starting last Wednesday as a result of storm Quinn.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

About a month ago, I received the L'Oreal Elnett vox box, courtesy of Influenster, which contained the extra strong hold hairspray for dry/damaged hair from the collection. As you all know, I predominately use organic or all natural beauty products, so I was a bit reluctant to give this hairspray a try. What persuaded me was that it contains argon oil, which is what my shampoo and conditioner set contain (see that post here). I don't really use hairspray because I haven't found one that I truly love, perhaps until now.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

Anyway, today's outfit is one that is perfect for the start of spring, though we're not having the most glorious weather here on the east cost. There's yet another storm watch for this upcoming weekend, which I hope we dodge because we have a couple of family festivities planned that I'd hate to see get post-poned. At the start of spring, it's still rather chilly, even though it may initially feel much warmer than it is, particularly if we've been experiencing a frigid winter. A great outfit formula that's so easy to put together is one that involves...
