Toughen up

I already told you guys about my H&M turtle necks in this post. The obsession is still on going!

Having basic essentials like this turtleneck provides me with multiple outfits for the Fall and helps with layering. This outfit is a great example of how we can toughen up a 9-5 basic outfit. Imagine how boring  this look would be without this vest. For a minimalist fine, but if you are like me, some days you want your personality/mood to show even through your 9-5 outfit.

  This is especially important on those days when you don't want to get out of bed, never mind go into work. I learned a long time ago that we have to dress how we wish we felt and not always how we feel at the moment. keep this in mind before you get dress when you have to go to work or anywhere for that matter.

Not Your Average Soccer Mom-Red

Guess who wasn't thrilled about the 8:30am soccer game? (after going to bed at 1:00am) Me!!!!
  On a great note, my baby kicked butt on the field!  He scored a goal and was a great team player.  so proud of him!

I usually allow myself 10-15 minutes to pick my outfit, but today was more like 5-10. SO Im standing in my closet like... "Ok I  need something that doesn't need to be ironed"... hoodie and some jeans...check! 
 "Ok now I need to liven up all this gray.." Red leather jacket I wore last night and of course(drum roll) Riri woo lips!

And then I was done! 
Now I'm torn between Starbucks or a nap for some energy... too much to do!

Last Train

If you get into anything for the Fall....get into this turtleneck! I purchased a black and a gray one two weeks ago at H&M . They have the right amount of stretch and the quality is excellent. The amount of ways to wear them are endless!

Feelin it

Ever have an outfit in mind that comes out exactly the way you envisioned? Well this outfit here is one of many, but recent.  Dana and I attended  A Mavens World launch at the  Liquid Art House for Boston Fashion Week.
I had been itching to wear this light faux fur jacket, so the minute I felt that cool breeze...it was a wrap! this outfit had to be worn. I've loved veils and vintage headpieces for as long as I can remember, but easily get bored of wearing them the same way all the time. This time around I wanted a pinch of glamour with a spoon of laid back and a splash of sexy.

I said to myself  "Yes V! you are not bad today honey!" lol (come on you had one of those moments)
