Pray For Boston!

Today, I just wasn't in the mood for anything fashion related.  I actually got dressed up really cute this morning (some new clothes I bought this past weekend).  But I was feeling very melancholy and this song only added to the sadness I was feeling, but it just feels appropriate for today.  
I usually listen to this song when I could use a good cry and today just feels like one of those days...as a runner I am so horrified and disturbed by this tragedy! I just ran a huge race in DC last weekend and it just really makes you think that it could happen anywhere there are large crowds of people!  I just really hope we can find out why and who did this horrible thing!

Chambray and Ruffles

Now that the weather is teasing us a little and we're getting a few nice-ish days here in Ohio, I'm trying to incorporate more dresses and skirts into my outfits.  I find that pairing a chambray top with a skirt is a good way to keep your arms covered and make the skirt a little more casual.  But I'm pretty sure the Hunters were all it needed to make this look more casual.

Lavender and Bordeaux

I wanted to pair 2 unexpected colors together.  I like the contrast between the rich bordeaux pants and the light pastel of the blazer.  Unfortunately it was too cold and too dark for outdoor pics by the time I met up with Trey after work, so this is the best I could do.

Jam Session

So as part of trying to blog everyday, I sometimes have to throw in posts that aren't fashion related.  I'm not sure how everyone else feels about it, but I like getting away from clothes from time to time and posting about other interests of mine, mainly music and alcoholic beverages, but we all can't be perfectly well rounded.

One more day till Friday =)

Pink Accents

Hot pink has always been a favorite color of mine, I mean, honestly, what girl doesn't love hot pink? It just adds the perfect amount of girly-ness to any ensemble.  Plus in my opinion, hot pink goes with any color combination.  Which is why I mixed in pink accents with this black dress even though I was already wearing a burgundy top underneath.

Tuesday Casual

Tuesday Casual

Nothing like some stretch pants and a quick updo for a Tuesday...especially when I worked at the bar last night.   Feeling very blah today! But I'm heading to DC this weekend {yet another trip and another race} for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, and of course to visit with my favorite older sister :) Have a Great Week!

Plaid and Stripes

My roommate tried telling me that plaid and stripes did not go together, and I told him he obviously hasn't seen Pinterest lately. Plaid and stripes are all over Pinterest, here are some of my favorite looks. 

Sometimes guys just don't know what they're talking about!
