I’m sure we all know and appreciate the power of a little black dress.  This one is a favorite of mine…it even looks really cute with just sandals and a pair of aviators for running errands with the kids.

Later tonight I’ll be wearing another lbd to go party at ROOF on The Wit.  It’s one of many BlogHer ’13 events.  This one is being hosted by MomTrends and Shark.  I can’t wait to meet the other bloggers that are going!  There’s even a car service that’s picking me up from my house!!  (Ekk!!! It’s going to be so much fun!)  I’m sure I’ll be Instagramming and Tweeting all night, too!  (Make sure you’re following to join in on the fun!)

And just a reminder…enter for a chance to win a beautiful Before + Again item!  (That’s a $70 to $89 value!!)

With a big birthday coming up next month (guess who’s turning 30!?!), I’ve been on the lookout for a party outfit…or at least something fun that I can dance in!  Something like this V-front peplum dress (sent over by Style House PR) just might do the trick!

On Sunday, a group of us went to see my brother’s latest production at Broadway in Chicago at Water Tower Place.  When it’s cold and you’re in the Windy City, layers are the way to go!

Thanksgiving has been a favorite holiday of mine for as long as I can remember.  Spending time with the ones I love, and continuing with old and new traditions (like our walk around the neighborhood) after stuffing ourselves to the limit.

My family is a very accepting one, too.  They’re not judgemental (too much anyway!) when I experiment with nontraditional outfits.  Wearing this skirt over a dress seemed like a good idea at the time, but with the movement of the fabric paired with all the movement of the day…didn’t work out quiet as planned.  Eh, win some, lose some.

Hope your holiday was relaxing!  Dare I even mention Christmas now?!

Making a Statement {Necklace}

29 Oct 2012 Permalink

I’ve been seeing soooo many gorgeous looking statement necklaces on Pinterest.  So in efforts to keep the credit card bills down before the holiday shopping begins, I started mixing and matching my jewelry to create one fun piece.  One rhinestone necklace, a pair of clip-on earrings, and a brooch later…I’ve got a statement necklace that no one else has.
