It may be winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to wear greys and blacks all the time. Today’s outfit is a great spring dress converted over to winter with some tights and boots. Side note– I am not a CAbi rep. I am just a loyal customer. CAbi clothes are perfect for my work wear and my casual wear. So I have a lot of it. Just needed to throw out that disclaimer. Also my SIL Nicole wore this same dress today. Yes we totally called each other and planned it. We love being pretend twins. We have a lot of the same pieces because our styles are so similar. Do you have a pretend twin? Isn’t it the best! We call ourselves Danny and Arnold (Twins movie, 1988). Since I am 5’2″ and Nicole is 6′, its obvious who’s who.
I’m loving this dress paired with the cardigans and belt. I’ll have to remember that for the next time I wear it. This jacket is fun and lightweight. It is great to dress it up or down.

I’m doing an 8-week boot camp at a local gym. I don’t know if I would actually call it a gym. When I think of a gym I think of tons of machines and everyone doing their own thing. This is more like a small group that does an intense 30-45min circuit workout. We all encourage each other and plow through these intense sets. I love it.
So when I work out, I want to look cute. But by cute I don’t mean slutty. There is a difference. I’m not an oversize t-shirt and sweatpants girl. Nor am I in my booty shorts and sports bra. There is a happy medium ladies. Plus I got two new pairs of NB kicks this week, so I needed to show you both 🙂
And because I have to go to a day job and unfortunately can’t hang out in my workout clothes all day, this is what I threw on today.
Serioursly, I need to work on photos. Some other ladies have this figured out, I do not. Plus today was terribly rainy here in the PNW, so no outside for me. #IphonePhotoFail.

Leopard is a neutral. And if you don’t agree we can’t be friends. Ellie even has leopard in her wardrobe. The outfit I actually wanted her to wear today we couldn’t find the leggings to, of course. So we had to go to plan b.
We bought this school shopping this year at the Gymboree outlet. So not sure if it was a last season or what. She rocks it.
So my little sister is on a trip with our brother to the Big Easy aka New Orleans. I’m so jealous. I’ve only been once, and was memorable trip 🙂 So in typical little sister fashion, she needed to borrow several items from my closet. So I did not get to go on a vacation, but my clothes did. They’re so lucky.

Now this was not a feature I was planning on adding, but I could not resist. This is what is called a FASHION NO NO moment. You are not in hiding, there is such a thing as bad camo, and this is how you don’t do it. I did not steal this off any website. Saw it with my own eyes picking up Ellie at school. I think the overkill is with the camo purse. I just don’t have words.
I am a working gal. I work in a professional office, but I try not to dress boring. Somedays I want to be fun, some I want to be comfy, but I always have to be professional.
I always forget I’m short until I see a picture of myslef. (I’m 5’2) I look just like my grandmother, scary. She was this petite, busty cuban and I am a carbon copy. And I have a hard time taking these pictures of myslef. I guess I have no inner Kim K.
I’m naturally curly and I like it most of the time. But lately I’m tempted to go back to the straight look. I guess I’m lucky in the sense that I can wear my hair either way. What’s your thoughts, Straight or Curly?
So I have not perfected the art of the selfie. OR the art of taking a picture of myself in an outfit. Hopefully practice makes perfect. I went out Friday night for an impromptu girls night and got to wear a new outfit. Loved it and can’t wait to wear it again.
I’m a huge fan of CAbi. I have been going to CAbi parties for 4 years and still wear the pieces. They are so great and comfortable. They wash great and I just have been extremely happy with everything I have ever gotten there. So if you are ever invited to a CAbi party and haven’t gone, GO!
Now the Ann Taylor leather jacket was a splurge for me. I have been wanting a good leather jacket for sometime. Some that I liked were just way out of my comfort zone spending ($800!) and others were vegan- which is great- but they weren’t that just right look I was searching for. Then this AT jacket pops up, and I really like it, and I felt the price was reasonable for a leather jacket. A leather jacket isn’t something that goes out of style and I know I will get a lot of wear out of this.

Ok I’m gonna have fun with this blog thing. So I might do a “what I wore Wednesday” or a “Fashion Friday” occasionally. If I feel the outfit is blog worthy. These will be short and sweet. Hope you like them! Today I had a mediation, so I needed to dress business like. My pants probably could be hemmed an inch to be perfect. I’m 5’2, so it’s a problem.
