Back in Time

In the past year I have really become addicted to fashion blogs. I particularly have a fondness for those bloggers that give a daily snapshot of what they're wearing. It is amazing the ideas you can get from admiring someone else's outfit choices. There are two fashion blogs in particular that I follow daily Cupcakes and Cashmere and What I Wore. These fashionistas have some of the best fashion sense I have ever seen. Make sure to visit their blogs. You won't be disappointed.

It is because of their daily fashion blogging that I decided to give the 'outfit recap" or "highlight" a whirl.

{Forever 21 sweater, JCPenney pants, vintage necklace, gifted earrings, Fossil watch, Melrose Ave shoes}

This outfit makes me feel like I have stepped back in time; a prim and proper woman, however ready to get down to business and conquer the world. I love the tunic style top with the off-center collar & its large buttons. That isn't the only thing about the top I find unique. The top section of the piece is a cable knit design while the rest is a cotton solid. On the bottom half of the piece there are these adorable cable knit pockets; the perfect accent. The vintage pocket watch necklace gifted to me some years back reminds me of the styles of yesteryear. My "patchwork" shoes that I just adore; the stitching on them reminds me of a quilt. My fleur de lis earrings gifted to me from my hubby. They come from a mission trip our church took to India. They are just stunning in person.



So there you have it, my first fashion post. How did I do? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this outfit. There will certainly be more outfit posts to come. I definitely told myself "I look good today" when I looked in the mirror.

I'm thrilled that Jessica from What I Wore is having a book giveaway of her What I Wore book that hits shelves in two weeks. WOO HOO! She is giving away 10 signed copies of What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes for Personal Style plus a personalized illustration (of you!) to one extra special reader! REALLY hoping it is me :) Don't miss your chance to snag one of these sure to be best sellers for your very own!
