my outfit: bright and blue!

I know, I know... the suspense is killing you with the new "do" - sheesh people! This is the last of the "brunette" photos I still have hanging around. I will show you I promise... as soon as I stop catching myself off guard every time I look in the mirror. It looks great, I'm just SO not used to it.

But any way... how about some neon and blue? What a fun combo!

I absolutely LOVE this cardigan - it instantly lifts my mood!

I am really hoping JCrew brings back this style this spring... it's 100% cotton with "bling" buttons. I love having cotton cardis around because you can wear them any season... as opposed to a wool cardi, which is warmer, but not as seasonless.

This blue shirt was a little gem I rediscovered in my closet. It WAS a part of my "work" wardrobe when I worked outside of the home. It went great with suits and I haven't really worn it much since then (almost three years, sheesh!) - but I am glad I kept it around. I still have a stash of suits and trousers just waiting to for me to be invited to an important meeting. Anyone? Anyone?

Hello! New to your blog and so glad I found you! I ADORE your outfits. They all go together so well. I'm not very good at putting outfits together so I have been enjoying going back through your posts to see your different outfits. :)

I love your outfits but I've never really liked the neon yellow...until now. I LOVE this outfit. The yellow is a perfect addition to what could've been a very blah blue ensemble. You nailed it on the head!

(I'm the same way with my hair, I stopped coloring it brown and cut it all off and am letting it be salt & pepper gray and even though its been a month I still catch myself in a mirror!)

I adore that cardigan on you! It is such a GREAT color!!!! Can't wait to see the new 'do! Love your necklace too :)

I love how your outfits are always very well-put together, but they also look like they are comfortable and well-suited to life as a busy mom. And yes...I'm super curious to see the new hair color!

This color combo is fantastic!! What a great way to brighten up winter.

I also love the color combo, although I don't think I could wear lime green.

Really enjoying all your outfits (I'm new).

I went the opposite way. I was a blonde that went brunette, otherwise known as my natural color. I miss being blonde though, so I'm headed back that way in the spring.


What a fabulous outfit. I am loving ALL of it. The colour combo is dynamite, necklace is stunning, and the belt/bracelet is the perfect finishing touch. xx veronika
