This is the first time I've worn a color blocked piece.  I'm on the fence about it.  Its just ok....I think its going to go into the giveaway box.The dress is an apartment 9 thrifted dress and the cardigan is New York and Company.

The necklace....is NOT a Lia Sophia piece...yes, I am cheating.  But I couldn't resist this Sweet Romance.  ;)
The earrings are also Sweet Romance....

This is the casual watch; a Citizen Eco Drive; I wear a mixed metal piece every day, but this version with the leather strap fit with today's outfit a little better.

My NEW wedding ring!  My old ring kept losing stones and it was getting annoying to keep taking it for repair!  I did have a warranty, but who wants to leave their ring at the jewelers for two weeks every three months?  My original ring also has a high set stone that I kept whacking on things...so we decided to get a simple band that I could put on and forget.  Eventually, I'll have the stone from my original ring reset in a more secure design....but right now, I'm loving the simplicity of this pretty ring.  

In this and the next photo, I am playing with a couple of necklaces to see how they work with a coral top.  I wore this top and black trousers to Rose's house on Tuesday to do a Mary Kay makeover for her.  I love this delicate 'Vintage Rose' Lia Sophia necklace...but not so much with the coral top.


.....and this necklace, that POPPED with the berry colored top I wore for date night last weekend...is just kind of 'there' with this top.  I think high contrast is the key.....
Via Spiga boots that I got on super clearance earlier in the year...Love them! Really, they felt as comfortable as house slippers.  

And here is the beautiful, blooming Rose after her makeover.  I think she looks vibrant and pretty!  I'm so glad she let me come over and play with makeup.  I loved giving her a makeover that made her feel beautiful!

  2. Aww, I like the dress on you! I can understand though that if you aren't comfortable in something it's got to go. The colors are pretty. As always, you are rocking some great accessories! Heather

    1. Thank you Heather. I just don't love it....so I did decide to let it go. I'm just not a color block person.

  3. You have such a good eye for accessories! I love the details, don't you? I might need to get one of my rings remade - it keeps breaking apart, and I'm afraid I will lose a stone at some point.

    Rose looks amazing - her skin looks gorgeous and she doesn't look too "made up." You did a great job - very subtle.

    1. Thank you Sheila. I can't wait to tell Rose you said that. She will love hearing it. She is a very modest person.

      I hope you don't lose any stones in your ring!

    1. I agree, Lyddie...but because I'm a Lia Sophia advisor, I believe that its best to wear that brand in order to best promote. But there are other pieces that I do love...like the pendant. Its fun!

    1. Thank you Lorena. I'm not a big fan of color blocking. I don't really know why. I didn't feel pretty in this dress at all.
