Today I am going to give this bright combination a try. It will be a fun outfit, especially after the rather somber one I wore yesterday. I'm not 100% sure on the necklaces, belt, etc., so if I change my mind I'll add to this post. Once again I'm colorblocking!!

The very last days of nippy weather are here, so I wore this cashmere sweater with green tweed pants and my new-to-me Talbots bling necklace that I got for a mere $12. I've lost a little weight around my waist, so this sweater looked better on me than it would have last month. I had developed a little spare tire from the stress of life and the shoulder injury that has sidelined me. It also made it so that I am going to have to have surgery next week.

Once again I pulled a lazy and re-wore a previous outfit.

The weather has been so nice that I decided to wear this thin petal silk tank under this silk floral embellished cardigan. Of course, because it's spring it ended up being pretty cold, and I was freezing as I ran around getting pictures for yearbook.

This Talbots Tuileries skirt is another of my recent Ebay steals. I got it for $15, and I'm really loving it. I haven't worn this jacket much because it had a large inverted pleat in the top of the back that made me look like a hunchback. I sewed the pleat shut this morning and like the jacket much better without it. Today was my first day of not wearing tights. Here's to many more over the spring and summer!

This Talbots top and stretch jeans made a great and comfortable weekend outfit, but I also spent a lot of the weekend looking like I do to the left.

For this casual Friday, I went with this fun gingham lined floral jacket, a flame colored tee, and jeans.

After laying out several combinations, I went with the lime green jacket, orange silk tank, and striped skirt.

I went with brown again today, wearing a vintage travelers print top with a brown flannel jacket and turquoise accessories.

Today I felt a little on the wild side, so I decided to go with this animal foil skirt and the tribal jewelry.

Today I went with this beautiful rust jacket and an amazing scarf. After laying this outfit out, I chose a plain black tank instead of the crème brûlée top.

Today was my first day to try out this new skirt from Talbots. Wow. I really like this skirt. This was a very nice look--sophisticated enough for church but with that fun color factor added.

This is what I wore to go with the family to BYU's production of Shakespeare's Love's Labor's Lost. It was a fun adaptation set during WWII, with the men playing Air Force Cadets, and the women playing USO entertainers. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I must admit that I've been a sweatshirt (if that) wearer so far this spring break, but I did dress up to go to the caucus. The turnout was incredible--instead of 30 or so there were 280 people there. I wore the infamous jacket that I altered--and I got several compliments on it. I'm glad now that I didn't sell it on Ebay (first try) or give it to DI (second try).

We traveled down to Snowflake, AZ yesterday for my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. I wore this for the casual get together in the evening with all of their relatives and friends. What amazing parents I have!!!!

Today was Parent Teacher Conference. I wanted to look very professional, so I went with this pinstripe jacket over a sugar plum blouse. I got several compliments on this look. The sugar plum looks red here, but it's actually the purplish color to the right.

I've had this jacket for almost seven years, and I still like it very much. I kept everything else very subdued.

Today felt like a houndstooth/hot pink kind of day. The Mary Janes with black tights gave this a whimsical look.

I hadn't yet tried this pinstripe suit I picked up at the red hanger sale because I haven't hemmed the pants. So today I tried it with unmatched pants. It is a cute jacket--I love the fact that it is only double breasted at the bottom.

Sometimes I am in such a hurry to get to work that I will just wear what I wore to church again. Today was the opposite, with me quickly putting on a previous outfit from the week so I could make it to church on time. So, this is it, sans bag.

This was nice Saturday outfit to join my two daughters in watching the mostly incomprehensible foreign film, Women Without Men.

This was a great casual Friday outfit, as the jacket could come right off.

I decided to take advantage of both the big orange and pink trend and colorblocking to wear this cute orange skirt with a hot pink cashmere sweater. I actually went with a different scarf (pictured below)--one with orange, pink, green, turquoise, and brown--more muted and my leopard shoes. This was a fun outfit--perfect for a dreary day.

I've been drawn to color lately, so I thought I would stretch the seasons of this bright green jacket and try it with a different look. I loved this look--and hey, today is leap year, so I might as well take a leap in dressing.

Normally I try not to be too matchy matchy. With this particular suit, I just like the together look. I got quite a few compliments from my students today. They especially liked the blingy necklace (It's actually two necklaces together.)

I went with a mostly black look today. This is very comfortable wrap shirt, and the whole ponte feel is just comfort oriented. Even this blingy necklace from Talbots is light as a feather.

I like the versatility of this cardigan--it looks great with gray, light brown and dark brown.
