It has been a rainy, dark week here in NYC. So I thought I’d brighten up my mood by brightening up my outfit. I just pulled all the bright things that caught my eye and put them on. Kidding, but I did have a mission to dress bright. Mission accomplished!
On another note, you may have noticed that Cat has not posted at all this week. Well, she’s celebrating her one year anniversary with M in the Bahamas. Happy Anniversary Sees and Bro! Lucky for me, I’m also heading out to the tropics. A wedding in Mexico for a dear friend’s wedding. I’m so excited! My flight is tomorrow morning, and for some crazy reason I decided to check my passport on Tuesday night around 10pm. I usually just grab it and go, but not this time. Guess what, I realized that it expired on August of 2011!!! I freaked out, started crying and called my mom. Mom fixes everything. She told me that I would be able to go to a regional office and get express service and a passport the same day. The closest available appointment was Wednesday morning in Connecticut! I had to bring a bunch of documents and 2 passport pictures. Well, I have a lot of outfit shots but no passport pictures handy. I got all dolled up and headed to my local Walgreens, thank goodness for 24 hour service! I woke up bright and early, gave myself 3 hours for a 50 mile drive and made it with 30 minutes to spare (thank you GW traffic!) I’m so excited to tell you that I got a new passport and now I’m heading to Mexico tomorrow! Yay!
Cant’ wait to share wedding pictures, guest outfits and vacation outfit shots!
Have a great weekend!

I was inspired by this post from Marion from Marionberry Style. You guys, she has such great style and her Friday posts are hysterical recaps of her life as a school psychologist. She recently posted this outfit and I immediately started thinking about how I can take this trend to the office. I decided this look would be office appropriate by using an article of clothing and an accessory. Here’s what I came up with.
On a side note, I decided to try taking pictures out in my balcony. I thought it would be a small step towards venturing outside in the real world. It had just rained the night before and I guess some water accumulated on my neighbor’s balcony upstairs….this is what happened.
Plop! Water drop on my head! I went back inside.

I am a huge fan of all the color trends this season, more than any other season I can remember. Color pairings this season are bold, edgy and courageous – as Diana demonstrated in yesterday’s post. So when I saw this post by the lovely Aga of Aga’s Suitcase, I was immediately inspired. I love the combination of red and hot pink but I knew I had to add a grounding element if I wanted to wear it to work. So, I paired this bright ensemble with a navy blazer and neutral shoes and belt.
What do you think about brights at the office?

During the mayhem of fashion week last week, the team behind Blogger’s Night Out hosted their second event in New York City at the Caulfield. The venue was packed with fabulous sponsors including Sorrelli Jewelry and TJ Maxx and we were lucky to meet and get to know a few wonderful gals with fantastic blogs. So when you get a chance definitely head on over to visit Ely of Ripped Nylon, Emily of Loftiss Says, and Christine of Beauty in NYC. Also check out the edgy jewelry at In Pirate We Trust. We had a great time and we can’t wait until the next event!

It has been unseasonably warm here in the East Coast, and I’m NOT complaining. As much as I love boots, I love wearing pumps with my skinny jeans because they make my stubby legs look miles long! By the way, don’t you just LOVE this new top? I got it from a store called Joe Fresh, have you heard of it? It’s a Canadian based company that has opened up stores here in NYC (not sure where else in the country). It’s filled with basics, like this silk shirt in every color, cashmere blend sweaters, striped shirts all at affordable prices. This shirt was only $39! Think H&M meets American Aparel. Fortunately for me, but unfortunately for my wallet, there’s a store directly across from my office!
I’m in love with my Rebbeca Minkoff bag!!! I got it during the after Thanksgiving Day sale and I’m thinking about getting another one in pink.
