I’m not gonna lie, I do love a statement dress. This acid green really stands out. But, what I love even more is that the tie front hides a multitude of figure “flaws.”

While most of my meetings with clients are casual, I do attend conferences that require me to wear professional dress. I only own one suit and really have no interest in investing in another. So, I tend to go with cardigans and trousers as an alternative.

Just another Monday—my daughter is out of school due to President’s Day. So, today is all about juggling. Juggling my daughter’s needs with my deadlines.

Don’t you hate when a blogger’s outfits all tend to look the same. 🙂 Told you this was my winter uniform. It’s comfy, looks put together and can take me from running errands to a casual dinner out. Just got my hair done in this picture. I went a little blonder, and I’m liking it!
Magpie Styling Tip: White isn’t just for summer. Toss the old rule of wearing white only after Memorial Day. You can wear it year-round now.

This is my winter uniform—oversized sweater, skinny jeans and boots. And, I never get sick of it, because we only get about a month of chilly days each year… ::sigh:: Forget the black boots, add some interest with a neutral pair of boots or booties. Lovin’ the bug eye shades!

First of all, this dress is so sheer that I had to wear a slip, and the only one I had was a Spanx full body slip. If I lifted my arms or sat the wrong way, the dress rode up and the slip showed. Frustrating! I think this one will go to the tailor’s so I can have a lining sewn into the dress. Or, I need a shorter, more comfortable slip. On the flip side, I love the graphic black and white print as well as the on-trend high-low hem.
I’ve determined that I really like a little edge to my style. I like leather, graphic prints, clothing with studs and jewelry that’s a little tough. What style best suits you? Classic, girly, boho?
