Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #22

This outfit should really be called Sweat-tastic.  Because that’s pretty much all I did in this.  What began as a strangely cool and rainy morning turned into a sickening humid and hot afternoon.  I think I was a pool of moisture.
Thank goodness for the breeze or I may have become a puddle on the driveway!

Here’s the real life, a little blurry or maybe I just need some sleep!

Summer Style-From Polyvore to Real Life #19

Tonight I participated in a link party over at City Farmhouse.  It was fun minus the fact that I fumbled the link back here but it was a success none-the-less.  Go check out the other cool blogs that linked up!
Meanwhile here is the outfit from the final program of VBS.  I wouldn’t have paired the necklace with the earrings but the dress I wanted came with this attachment.  So we’ll overlook it just this once.
This outfit was comfortable enough to coach fifteen wiggling little ones to say their lines in front of their parents and loved ones.  Oh and sing and do actions too.  Thank goodness it’s to give God glory!  Because this wiggle isn’t as cute as the kids!

Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #6

Here’s my outfit I wore for church.  It was the closest I could come to what I really wore.  It is hard to find items that are similar to my look.
And it was nice to ditch the soccer mom attire and wear real clothes for a change.

Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #3

It’s the last day of school!  We made it!  Time to throw that alarm clock in the trashcan and set the clock to “slow down.”
We celebrated by taking the kids out to lunch in a very crowded pizza joint.  Let’s just say the claws come out when there is only a few pieces of pizza on the buffet.  And it isn’t even just the kids!

What to Wear with Patterned Heels

They call to you in the department store and they’re too hard to resist.   But then there they are in your closet and you are wondering what you were thinking.  What do these go with? When am I ever going to wear them?
Give those patterned heels purpose-
1)  For a no-brainer, pair them with neutrals.  Dress them up and take them out on the town for a date in a fancy pair of lace pants and a satin shell.
2)  Take them to a client meeting in a sheath dress in a matching tone.
3)  Wear them to a budget meeting with a fit and flare skirt and cardigan.
Leave the regret behind!  Put those heels to work!

What to Wear with a Bright Pencil Skirt

Many of us have the usual black pencil skirt hanging in their closet, but what about a brightly colored one?  Does this give you pause when trying to pull a look together?  Here are a few ideas-
1)  Pair it with something equally as bright.  A fuchsia blazer is a really fun piece to own.  You’ll be surprised at how many outfits it’ll refresh.
2)  Find some romance with a classic neutral.  The pretty details on this sweater make it perfect for work.
3)  Spice it up and add some shine.  Head out on the town with this sequin top and celebrate!
