During Christmas break, I went shopping with my mom and bought not just one but TWO bow-tie blouses! See the first one here. I adore them because they are classic, feminine, and fun.

Last week, when it looked like winter was going away, I broke out the dress capris because I felt like wearing black pants would make this outfit a little too safe or boring. I'm having a hard time with that recently. I can't seem to find that one little element to bring my outfits together. Have you ever felt that way?

Now that the crappy weather is back, I'm sad! I am SO ready for spring clothes and taking walks outside. I also can't wait to be able to see daylight when I come to and from work. But alas--that is months away!

I had a blast chatting with all of you about Downton Abbey and The Bachelor. Missed it? Don't worry--I'll be live tweeting again next Sunday and Monday!

I also appreciated some of the feedback I got when I posted this:


If you have any more suggestions or thoughts about this, please comment below! I would love to hear. Even though I'm still very much a novice blogger, I have learned A LOT and would love to spread the love.
