I love this dress as a casual dress to wear with flats. I see this as a great transition dress. Perfect for summer, but equally great for Florida’s tepid winters. Here’s how I’d wear it in fall/winter. I may add a cool scarf and some neutral-colored patterned tights if it’s really cold.
Dress: Rebecca Taylor
Sandals: Steve Madden
Necklace: Vintage Tassel necklace, Alissa Michelle necklace

This blouse can border on matronly when worn with the wrong outfit. I think I almost crossed the line here. The vibrant floral print has a vintage-y feel to it. Next time, I think I’ll wear it with leather pants or with skinny jeans and some wedge booties.
What I’m Wearing
Skirt: J.Crew (0ld)
Shoes: J. Crew Alecia peep toe sandals

Looks like my posts are few and far between, sorry about that. I’ve been a little burned out with the blog lately. I love doing it but it’s not what I envisioned. I didn’t ever want it to be posts of my outfits. I wanted it to be tips and information on how to find affordable, quality fashion and how to put together outfits from your closet. But, that’s so time consuming and I have to concentrate on the work that pays me! So, I’m working on a blog revamp. I’ll still post outfits and I’ll try to be more active on the blog. Stay tuned…
I love the contrast between this bright fuchsia top and the black jeans.
What I’m Wearing
Blouse: Vince via Nordstrom’s Rack
Jeans: Old Navy Rock Star Leggings
Shoes: Balenciaga Wedges
Necklace: Iosselliani via ebay
I discovered this brand at a local boutique-Continuum. I love the edgy designs. This necklace has a tiny skull hidden in the cluster among the rhinestones.

Remember that October wedding I told you about? We had such a fun time dancing the night away. My daughter was a lovely flower girl if I do say so myself! In this picture, sisters Kristin (maid of honor) and Erin (bride) and my daughter. Erin was a breathtaking bride, seriously beautiful and glowing! Kristin had us all laughing and crying, then laughing again when she gave her speech at the reception.
And, here’s what I wore to the wedding and reception.

Hi! Sorry I’ve been so absent lately. Busy with work and just not feeling like doing the blog… But, I’m hoping this cooler weather will rejuvenate me!
Magpie Styling Tip: Colored jeans are so in right now. I love this wine colored pair with neutrals. Some other options: burgandy/fuschia or burgandy/grey.
