Pink Midi

Carrie-Bradshaw-Inspired

This pink midi skirt reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw’s Oscar de la Renta dress circa Sex and the City season 6. She wore it out one night on a date with the Russian. And even though my skirt is nothing fancy, in fact it’s made of  neoprene, the material that screams anything, but fashionable to me, I feel like a million bucks in it.

I also wanted to talk about the shoes today, because without them my look wouldn’t have been complete. One of my coworkers has recently brought me 8 pairs of brand new shoes. She had a foot surgery and now, nothing really fits. But we do wear the same size. #Shoeblessing is exactly what I needed to help me go through this week. Work has been really hard, and stressful. But then there are all the new pairs. My one question now is – how do you store all the shoes? Especially if you have so many pairs? What about boots? Send me your ideas, I would love to make a Pinterest board!

Do you have a piece in your wardrobe that makes you feel special? What is it? Do you wear it often, or is it only for certain occasions?

I also got this top from Choies, sadly it didn’t fit quiet right, the sleeves were too narrow, but it’s cute none the less!

Winter Reading

Among countless fashion magazines and style blogs that I read on a daily basis, there is always room for books.

2014-02-04 09.34.21

I am guilty of reading more than one book at a time though, and yes, it’s a bad habit and maybe a sign of ADD, it’s similar to watching several different shows, and every new chapter, is like, well, a new episode!

The two books I am currently working my way through are:

– Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan

– Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman

The books that are on my to-read list are:

– Bridget Jones Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

– Likeable Social Media

I prefer not to make long lists, and set attainable goals 😉 I also love reading books on my Nook, but of course nothing beats checking them out of the library. Call me old fashioned, but …

Happy Tuesday!

I do several weekly/monthly posts that are regular (i.e Thrift Style Thursday or 2014
