Follow in Their Footsteps Friday: I've Got the Blues

Today's inspiration came from Melanie Brown, and the image I found is from The Budget Babe! My goodness, I LOVE that site. It is awesomely awesome.

So this outfit really inspired me, mainly because of the black/blue aspect!! I used to hate this combo, but now it is one of my favorites! Weird how things change, eh?  :0 )

 Cropped leather jacket: Body Central
Blue ruffled shirt: Maurices
Jeggings: Maurices
Nude pumps: Mossimo
Accessories: Target--Can you tell I switched earrings halfway through my shoot?  :0 )

The title of my post has a few meanings for me today. One, because of the blue in my outfit... obviously. Two, cause I do really have the blues (I am in the dumps today... and it's kinda too personal to just start rambling about it on my blog even though that is usually how I deal with my problems... but not really feelin' it this time), and three, cause I am headed to the blueness of the lake today. After work. It's gonna be windy, and wow is it a pretty long drive, but I think it will do me good to get away. 

I love escaping! I am pretty good at it too, I must say.

I think we all escape in our own way... this time, I choose to be lake-bound! I will post pics when I get back! I have decided I need to make this blog more than just outfits, and enviro-tips haha! Maybe then I will have more material to update it with!

Me Oh My, May is Nigh!!

Ok, so that title was a little corny. It is obviously very apparent by now that I get quite a kick out of alliteration and rhyming.

Take pleasure in the little things, I always say!!   :0 )

So the reason I have been absent for so long, is because I have been absolutely swamped by work. I basically was in charge of putting together an entire town hall in what one would call quite a short amount of time, and I had other responsibilities that needed to get done for another event, and Earth Day was April 22, plus all of my other duties. So, I was busy.

I really want to keep up with this! But, at least I haven't let it completely fall by the wayside...

So, here is an outfit!!!   :0 )

 White blouse: Maurices
Pink cardi: Maurices
Blue/pink plaid skirt: Orsay
Grey tights: Target
Grey bowtie mary janes: Mossimo

Did anyone do anything cool for Earth Day? I always like hearing about any effort people are making to help preserve the Earth. 

That's right... I'm a tree hugger!!!  :0 )   But even I can do better... I do always try to include thoughts of the environment in everything I do, though. It can get pretty tough sometimes. 

Earth From Above by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Well, Happy Earth Day everyone!!!!

Follow in Their Footsteps Friday: Black, Blue and Brown

 This week, I got my inspiration from the lovely Emily of Tomorrow Never Knows. I saw her outfit, and I was just completely inspired! Mostly because I have never worn black, brown and blue together, because I never thought I could pull it off. But I think this has now become one of my favorite outfits!! The one thing I was missing, unfortunately, was the leopard scarf... and I really think that adds something, so I will have to revisit this outfit at a later date! But thank you Emily!  
:0 )

 Black Babydoll dress: Body Central
Black tee: H&M
Blue tights: Target
Brown boots: Jessica Simpson
Headband: Hmmm...
Earrings: Target

Haha I love that last pic. AIRPLANE!!  :0 )

I am spending a lovely weekend in Denver! We are planning to go to the Molly Brown House, the Denver Art Museum, and the Stanley Hotel! I have been to the latter before, but I loveeee it. 

Ghost stories, man... they are right up my alley. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend as well!

Oh, and APRIL FOOL'S DAY!! Didn't think of anything worthy enough to post up here... but I got my friends and fam goooooood! Hahahaa.
