Call off the hounds

I think this might be my last post wearing tights! It’s getting pretty warm outside, and by March I usually retire them to their dresser drawer. This last look is perfect for tights–and definitely needs them for work. This miniskirt is long enough to be business appropriate, but the tights make both my legs and the skirt look longer. Remember, it’s all about tricking the eye–and I’m full of tricks! I didn’t get a ton of wear out of my booties this season either, so this outfits is really a last hurrah all around. I love how the houndstooth skirt pops against the all-black pieces. The whole thing is simple and chic while still being interesting and eye-catching. It’s going to be hard to let go of my black, but expect gorgeous spring colors coming up!

Leave it in the pastels

I have seriously neglected this blog, but no more! I hit the ground running on day one of 2015 and haven’t stopped for a water break since! I absolutely love the colors in this outfit and it reminded me how much I miss posting each day on here. Today’s outfit was inspired by the cool down and transition from winter to spring. I chose to put the coral with the light blue because I thought the contrast was really pretty and light. It has a fun loving feeling about it. The zippers on both pieces give it an edge and extra intrigue. I’m always attracted to pieces with zippers, and I especially liked how they were placed on this sweater. Today’s high was in the low 80s, so I figured it was safe to wear sandals! I added some small touches of silver to keep the outfit simple yet feminine. This is this first time I’ve worn my sapphire ring on the blog. I got it for Christmas and I’m obsessed. Sapphire is my birthstone–and those can be tricky. Many jewelry items with birthstones can be tacky looking, but this ring is just perfect.
