Perhaps this outfit is a wee bit patriotic, but that seems appropriate with Memorial Day weekend coming up! I really like this outfit because I literally threw it on and went out the door. This top is really unique because the cut out is actually sheer, but you can't see through it enough to see anything, so it is still work-appropriate. I might even try to make a top like this in the future. What do you think? Use a too-small shirt, cut down the front, attach a cool fabric and loop it around the neck to fasten at the bust-line. Sounds easier than it probably is...

On another note, I feel like my heart hasn't been in the blog recently because I am so busy/tired with work. I think I will feel rejuvenated once summer hits. How do you deal with your "lows" in the blogging world? Oh, but to mention a high, one of my friends from college just started her own blog and it is fabulous already! Check out Forever Above Me! Thinking about starting your own blog but don't know where to begin? You might want to read my Blogging for Beginners Series, starting with week 1: Where Do I Start?
