A spring in my step.

I worked all day today like I do every Saturday and Sunday.  To brighten up my day on this rainy Sunday, I wore a bright colored cardigan and skirt.  I bought this outfit months ago and I have yet to wear it yet.  I bought both the cardigan and skirt from the Liz Claiborne Outlet right before it closed.  I scored both pieces for $9.99!

Cardigan: Liz Claiborne Outlet $4.99 

Skirt: Liz Claiborne Outlet $4.99

T-Shirt: Forever 21 

Watch: Bulova

Jewelery: my grandmother’s (vintage)

P.S.  I cut my hair shorter too–in anticipation of summer!

Not so mellow yellow

Attention ladies!  Fear not the color yellow for Spring/Summer 2011!  I know that yellow can be a tricky color to pull off, especially if you are blonde and blue-eyed like me.  Sometimes yellow can make me look washed out but worn with the right hue and accessories, it’s absolutely stunning! I’m embracing this bold color trend this season and taking a cue from these fabulous fashionistas:

They’re rocking this bold color!

I didn’t know where to start….

I came across this Alice Walker quote today and I feel that it exudes everything I’m feeling at this exact moment.  I’m graduating with my Education degree in one week, planning out my future, and itching for that next step.  I’m interviewing for teaching jobs and charting the course that will hopefully bring some much needed change to my life soon. I think I’m ready.

Orange crush.

For work, I decided to dress down just a little.   I paired Gap jeans with a beautiful Ann Taylor blazer that I thrifted for $1!  Yes, you did not read incorrectly.  The blazer was marked down to $1.  This outfit has been getting a lot of mileage lately.  I’ve worn it to work, shopping with Kelly, and out and about with my mom.  It’s my new go to outfit.

All I do is work.

I feel like between student-teaching, classes, and working all weekend, there has been no time for anything.  I had a serious shopping withdrawal!  Thank goodness for spring break and my friend Kelly!  We had lunch and hit up all of our favorite thrift and consignment stores.  I found this great vintage Ralph Lauren cotton dress–a total steal!  I wore it to work last week paired with Dollhouse white slingback pumps.  It was such an effortless ensemble!

Just needed a night away!

My boyfriend and I went to see Kathy Griffin in Atlantic City a few weeks ago.   I didn’t get a chance to blog about it because my semester was coming to an end.  I finished student teaching yesterday and now it’s on to graduation in just 2 weeks!  It’s been an exhausting process and now I’ll have some more free time to get back to blogging!

Not only was the Kathy Griffin show a blast because she’s obviously the funniest woman on the planet, but I had a chance encounter at the Borgata.  Carson Kressley happened to be at the show!  I  bumped into him leaving the show and going down the escalator.  For those of you that don’t know who he is–Google him!  He is a fashion guru, stylist, and has been on Oprah, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and How to Look Good Naked.  He was super sweet and said that he loved my outfit and shoes!  Score!  I totally died.  To have his approval was pretty awesome!

We ended the night with gelatos at the Borgata cafe.  All in all I’d say we had a successful night!
