Sgt. Pepper

While Rob was taking my picture this morning (still have to set up my new tripod from Santa) he said, "you know what you have to title this post...Sgt. Pepper". I found this jacket at Macy's after Christmas. I had a dress and a pair of leggings in my hand when I spotted to oversize gold buttons on this jacket. When I found my size, I had to purchase it. As an added bonus, it was on sale and I had a gift card. Woo hoo!
The outfit:
Jacket - INC
Watercolor mock turtleneck - Kenneth Cole
Skirt - Ann Taylor Loft
Argyle tights and boots - Target

Watermelon in Winter

When I bought this skirt, I didn't think to pair it with pink. However, I really like this color combination. Unlike yesterday, I did not choose to bare my legs today. Instead, they are covered by nude pantyhose (despise!). I put a hole in my nude fishnets, so I had to suffer in these for 10 hours.
The outfit:
Cardigan and bead necklace - New York & Company
Print cami - Old Navy
Green pencil skirt - Target (love this!)
Black slingbacks - Jessica Simpson

Grin and bare it

It's no secret, I am not a fan of cold weather. I enjoy the transition of summer to fall, with chilly temperatures come tights, boots and sweaters. However, the novelty quickly wears off. After Christmas, I long for warmer temperatures and fewer layers. Unfortunately we have two more months of winter.
Since I knew that I didn't have to venture out of my office today, I decided to forgo tights or pantyhose and bare my legs.

Dress and long necklace - New York & Company
Sweater - Forever XXI
Belt- The Limited
Ombre python heels - Charles David (via DSW)
Short necklace - gift from little sis

It's Friday!!

For a short work week, this seemed like a long work week. I think I am still trying to get back into the habit of getting up every day and putting in 8+ hours in the office.
Tomorrow I am headed to Dayton to spend the afternoon with my mom and sisters. It is one of my sister's birthday, so we will have lunch and then shop. I haven't seen my sister since Christmas, so it will be nice to see her and have a girls day.

Silk top - The Limited
Trousers, earrings and black cuff bracelet - New York & Company
Gray and purple heels - Shoedazzle
Multi-color bead bracelet - Lia Sophia

I returned to work last week post surgery, but found it difficult to get back into old routines (i.e. taking/uploading pictures for blog). As the ability to use my right arm increases, my getting ready time in the morning improves.

I saw this skirt in my hanging in my closet this morning and realized that I haven't worn it since early last summer. I decided to pair it with a new sweater that I bought on clearance after Christmas. The proportions of the outfit seemed off, but improved with the addition of this denim jacket.

The outfit:
Denim jacket - New York & Company
V-neck sweater and T-shirt - Ann Taylor Loft
Skirt - The Limited
Studded heels - Shoedazzle (January 2010) Note: The hubby now refers to these as my "bondage heels"
Necklace - Sin City Antiques

Out of Commission (temporarily)

I took time off around the holidays to spend time with friends and family. To date, I have not returned to work since I had shoulder surgery on December 29. I didn't figure my followers would want to see daily posts of me in sweats and a hat, so I will resume posting when I return to work next week.

Happy New Year
