Very subtly yours

I decided to be a little cheezy for Single’s Awareness Day/Valentine’s Day by wearing my heart print blouse. But to not make it so obvious, I threw on my blue cardigan over top. LOL. I wonder if anyone noticed the heart pattern?

I almost didn’t post this outfit. Things are kind of crazy right now; there are a lot of things happening at once career-wise and I’m trying to sort it out as much as I can without stressing, but I’m feeling the pressure–all of which I have placed on myself, of course. I feel like things are finally starting move, but hopefully it’s just not another tease because I felt like this about the same time last year and that didn’t work out so well. =/ I’m crossing my fingers that this will have an opposite outcome. However, as a result of all this craziness, blog outfits might be a bit more infrequent the next few weeks.

On a more positive note, I have a few upcoming blog-related surprises for all of you, so stay tuned! Plus, I’m going to be making my first trip to NYC next week! Any suggestions on places to check out??

I found this sleeveless houndstooth chiffon-type cross-over top at H&M quite a few months back. I took it with me into the fitting room and when I put it on, it was just “meh”. But I had walked into the store wearing a blazer and had a thought that I should put it on over top to see what it would look like. Voila. Instant chic. Goes to show that it pays to be creative even in the fitting room.

The skirt is just a touch too long to be worn with these boots. If the boots were black or if the skirt was a bit shorter it would give the illusion of a longer leg. Here, I just insisted on wearing these boots with the rest of this outfit and hoped that no one noticed that I looked extra short today.

Now that we’re older (and live in different countries!), we don’t get to see each other too often, but Christmas is the one time of year that me and the girls make sure it does happen. And to make it even more fun? Gift exchange! One of my GFs was apparently super excited before leaving the house when her hubby asked her, “Aren’t you too old to be getting excited about gifts?” Well, of course not! 😛
