Back and at em

I have not been very inspired hence the lack of posts for a few months but I gave a fantastic new camera and HP touchpad so that should help inspire me to update my inspiration board and as soon as I do I'll be posting an update. The summer has flown by so I plan to focus on a fall look, which always makes me happy. I love to change seasons. I have been so busy in work and changing shifts and looking to change schools soon to complete my degree! Have a wonderful Sunday lovelies .

Day at the river

This week has been so busy, and very cold so haven't been too inspired to wear anything cute. Here is the first of two skirts I have made. I love this because the maxi skirt is so cool because it is chiffon so there is not heat, and it looks great for those not quite warm transition days into spring...Freeman's hotdogs for lunch and a nice walk at the river with Chris was the perfect Monday.

Skirt - DIY

Play my music in the sun

I am so happy! I am so glad the sun is finally in my home town, it has been way too long since I got to wear a tank. Tomorrow or Sunday will call for a trip to the fabric store for spring goodies! I'll post photos of course. This was yesterday before work, and let me tell you, I was the biggest klutz! I tripped once walking into work, and once walking out of work in those shoes! I love my heels and will keep wearing them, but let me tell you I have some battle wounds. I also included a photo of me on a lazy Monday with my dogs who I love! Marley Jane is the little black on and Mojo is the brown one and they make me incredibly happy. I hope you are all having a great start to the weekend!

Please don't slow me down

Sorry guys, I have been so busy! School is getting tough for the end of the semester, work is crazy lately! I can't wait for some down time, but it will be so worth it...I haven't been able to do a photo update, but here are some of the photos I'm using for spring shopping inspiration!

The yellow dress is amazing! A designer who is new to me, Nicole Farhi is bright and sunny just the way spring should be, but I love the cut in the front. The wide leg jean is coming back which is fine with me! Heels and wide leg jeans are complimentary to pretty much anyone making your legs look a mile long; in fact, today I wore a pair of wide leg jeans, my brown Charlotte Russe heels, and a white LL bean button down shirt. Looked amazing and made me feel like I was channeling the 70's without looking like I had lost all my fashion sense. Finally, a pair of amazing blue Christian Dior heels which are a perfect example of the bright color shoe trend for spring which I for one am so excited for!

I hope you are all having a great week!

I know you're not boring...

I have been feeling a little more than lackluster about my closet lately. I'm having a hard time seeing new things and ideas in it. I need some fresh spring things. The first week of spring and already we have had sun, rain, snow, wind, hail, and every other desert weather but warm! I can't wait for it to start warming up a bit but I've got to make a trip to the fabric store at some point soon so I can start making some great new spring skirts! I'm in love with the short flowy floral skirts right now! and I need some cute new tops. It is Friday, but not mine so I had to work today so nothing too crazy, but here is my outfit for the day.  I hope you all had a great week and have a fantastic weekend!

Ichiban's dinner

Today was the birthday of my amazing boyfriend Chris,who I love and I'd like to say happy birthday to him! We had an amazing dinner at Ichiban's Japanese Steakhouse and relaxed at home for the night. I loved spending time with him, as it is far too scarce now days with me being in school and both of us working full time.
And these are the coolest little drink things, they are different flavors and you get to keep the mug! We got the Panda and Cat which are shown, but also a geisha and Buddha. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week, I know I have been!

Matte About You...

Pretty sure my newest obsession for this spring is Essie Matte About You nail topcoat. It can be put over any nail polish to give it a fashion forward matte finish! I love the look of the matte top coat, I used it with Essie Tart Deco. I love the orange-y pink color of the polish and the matte finish makes it look just a little more edgy and a bit less church like.
Sorry I don't have the top notch camera so you can see in super detail, but it is amazing and I love the product. I found mine at Wal-mart for $7.25/bottle. I'm sure you'll see the colors in future posts. I hope you're all having a fantastic week, I will update photo posts tomorrow!
