It has been far too long since I’ve done a post. I love to write so my little blog is my creative outlet. When life gets in the way and I am unable to do what I most enjoy, it makes for a very unhappy Nicole 😦 That being said, I have some fun outfits coming up, so please check back daily.
It has been windy, very windy but that’s Winter in Hawaii for you. I’m making good use of my sweaters and loving every minute of it but I must say, I am SO looking forward to Spring Fashions. Nothing makes me happier than pastel colors. We are already starting to see some great pieces in stores so I am definitely keeping my eyes peeled for Spring/Summer 2013 trends. It’s safe to say that we are a weeks (I’m being optimistic here) but more realistically months away from truly experiencing spring in all of its glory. I haven’t traveled to the U.S. mainland this winter but I know the weather has been pretty brutal. So brutal, that we received a rude awakening when attempting to book a Florida trip utilizing our hotel points. Seems the entire Eastern seaboard has the same idea as our hotels of choice were all but completely sold out. We’ll see what happens in the next few days regarding March travel…
This sweater dress is yet another Victoria’s Secret piece I picked up. I keep mentioning ordering clothing (dresses) from the VS website as of late. I have found the pieces to be quite nice and I get a perfect fit nearly every time I order. We’re not talking expensive clothes here but the pieces do seem to attract attention as I receive compliments.
By now, it’s no secret that I am all about spending on accessories and not as much on clothing. I love designers and do purchase pieces but I will always wait for a item of clothing to go on sale if it is ticketed with a hefty price tag. I am a clothing stalker ( I refer to it as doing surveillance) and once I see my target item drop in price, I pounce like an African jungle cat. Shopping with Victoria’s Secret has not only been convenient but also easy on the wallet. Don’t fret, designer clothing pieces to come.
I love Blue because it can be paired with both gold and silver. I went with gold as I felt like layering a few gold chains. My tory Burch logo belt added a bit of oomph to the outfit and one can really never go wrong with black pumps. Yes, black and blue do go together but make sure there is a contrast.
My earrings are Blue Topaz from Sharrona’s on Etsy. I loved the name “Cloud Nine” and when they arrived in the mail, they were more stunning then the photos–I was truly on cloud nine with these very gemmy clear blue stones that glow–love them!
