Chambray and Brights!!!!!

There is something magical that happens when the weather changes.  The brights become workplace acceptable, the sandals and peep toed shoes make a break for the front of the closet, and the tights get unceremoniously shoved into the depths of a drawer...  

Me? I took the opportunity to dress up some Chambray and mix up some bold colors.  

Chambray for the office:

Skirt - The Limited (last year), Chambray - Old Navy 

Bold Color Mixing

Skirt and Shell - JCrew, Cardigan - BR (old) 

My main idea with this outfit was to mix up some bold Spring colors that coordinated I'm a huge fan of both Green/Navy mixes and Navy/Coral mixes so I thought what the hell.  This was the result.

Hello and a Month Long Recap

Well hello!  An awful lot has been happening over the past few weeks!! Here is a quick recap:

- I have become hopelessly addicted to miles reward travel and researching miles accumulation methods and finding and booking reward travel.  

For anyone who knows me (like knows me knows me) knows just how stinkin big of a deal this is.  I LOVE to travel, in fact there is almost nothing I love more.  I have been having a glorious time. 

- Work has been insane. 

No big story to tell here, I just have been neglecting my poor blog at work's expense. 

- I'm on a house decorating kick. 

We've lived here for a year, there still isn't anything on our walls, in the little shelving cubbies near the TV.  Nadda.  It's about damn time.  I am super excited to report I found a fabulous patio set from Pottery Barn that I am completely in love with, I am not excited to report that I have spent of the past 4 weekends between working and visiting the Pottery Barn.  

Stay tuned for more posts, recaps, house stuff, etc. etc. etc.
