January 20-24, 2015

Hmmm...after three days I noticed I'd worn green every day this week. Maybe this is my way to fight back against the gray and dreary winter weather we are having?

I'm not much of a shopping guru blogger. I don't usually link to my purchases, and I'm such a bargain driven shopper that what I buy is usually almost gone by the time I've tried it out. This is the case with the skirt I wore today, but I loved it so much I wanted to mention it in case it is still available in the size anyone wants. This is the Modern Houndstooth Pencil Skirt. As far as bold and striking and type 4, it is really the perfect skirt. It looked drop dead gorgeous today with a simple red sweater and my faithful black jacket from Talbots. The fact that I got it for $40 only made it more desirable as far as I'm concerned.

I think my favorite outfit of the week was the black and white windowpane plaid skirt with the green sweater. I love black and green together. The sad clothing event of the week was accidentally getting a blueberry ground into the sleeve of my new-to-me Molly Ottoman orange jacket. Sigh. Hopefully it will come out.

This was a whirl wind week as usual, going back to school. I tried to stick with basic primary colors. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the green floral cardigan outfit. I hadn't worn that cardigan in a long time, and I'd forgotten how beautiful it is (a lovely cotton silk blend in the perfect green). The purple and yellow skirt set was just the right touch to wake up the week.

We went super casual for New Year's Eve last night -- just meeting with the family and enjoying some board games. Today we had our traditional New Year's Day open house where we invite every one we know, put out a lot of food, and play games all day. It was a lot of fun. This is what I wore, along with Harry Mason earrings and slipper sox. I ordered this Talbots sweater after Christmas with a GC and amazingly got it in time to wear for New Years!

Now to the news for the year. I love this blog and spend a lot of time on it -- probably too much. I have other things I need to be involved with -- I have a novel mapped out that needs to get written, a guitar to play, school and classes, and family. So -- I am going to limit my posting to once a week for the rest of the year. I may post several outfits on the day I post, or I may just post my favorite -- I'm not sure. I'll still be dressing fiercely, so don't worry about that! I think this will lead to a better overall year for me while still allowing me to have the creative outlet that this gives me.

Thanks for reading and have an amazing year in 2015!
