My Saturday


I copied the top half of one of my last week’s outfits (a little edge) and mixed it up with a fun patterned skirt, colorful paisley patterned tights, and slouchy suede boots.

I went out for a fabulous classic Italian dinner at Pompilios (you know â€" featured in a Rain Man, 1988).  Their food is so delish!  My faves are the eggplant parmesan and the 3 cheese tortellini.  Next time I would like to try a dish with some kind of seafood, because that always looks so good too!

After dinner, I attended a Cincinnati Car Convention.  I’m not necessarily in the market for a new car, but it was fun to do something different & I love to see what’s new in the market.  I ended up being pretty impressed with the hybrids and may even take a test drive next week!

Jeans: NY & Co.  Vest: Express.  Shoes: Two Lips.  Tie Top: Moda Int’l.

Friday casual, and I’m playing up my blues.  To be honest, it was a really long week and I was so excited to start my weekend that I really didn’t care to give too much thought to my outfit… 

The one thing that I was excited about was finding another pair of jeans that actually fit me well.  I’ve never tried NY & Co. jeans, but recently I tried on a couple pairs.  One fit horribly, the the other fit great (& here they are!)!


The Footware Solution to Slush

After all of the snow and rain in New York this winter I have been trying to figure out a solution for footwear. I learned a lesson last week when I wore my rubber boots to work all day and didn't bring another pair of shoes to change into. Rubber boots are awful to wear for long periods of time because your feet start to sweat. Yuck! But these new shoe covers by Shuella are great because they slip on over your other shoes. They keep the slush out but you don't have to tote around your other shoes in your purse. And they come in several cute colors although I prefer the black myself. $49.50

Keeping it basic today with a NY & Co. ruffle blouse, shimmery gray slacks from Macy’s, purple Jessica Simpson pointy flats, and orange textured Nicole Miller purse.
