Indian Summer

It was hot today, like summer hot. I thought it was supposed to be fall. Well, it gives me an opportunity to wear my H&M button down with denim shorts. It's a simple look with brown braided sandals.

They're cute.

This is such a comfy outfit. The shirt is a bit sheer, but it looks okay in this picture. I desperately need a better camera, or at least one that doesn't blur my pictures.

I did an ombre effect on my nails. It looks so badass.

A Bit of Romance

I wanted to see how I can style my new dress from H&M today. It is pink and transparent. I did a little romantic look today. I had to put a tank underneath because it gaps. Then I piled pearls on. They are all from my grandmother and great-grandmother. A key-shaped ring from Aldo brought in some gold. Gold Report flats add to the romantic feel.

My doggie decided to join me. My ring from Aldo Accessories. And purple nails!


I think this outfit is cute! Maybe neutral heels would work, too. I just have to work on my posing.

Stay pink!

Simple and Chic

I think this is one of my favorite outfits. I started with a pair of Gap jeans. Then I added a black rouched shirt, courtesy of Last Tango. I got it in Florida. The grey Forever 21 cardigan was added for texture. Looking at the outfit, I thought I needed some color.

This necklace was perfect. My grandma gave it to me. If you look carefully, you can see the dragons! To match the green stone, I thought of my bracelet.
I got this bracelet in Israel. I don't wear it nearly enough. As for the mixed metals, I think it works. It would be too matchy-matchy, in my opinion, if I wore only one metal.

I don't really have any. I like the way the sleeves of the shirt stick out from under the cardigan. The only thing is I wish I were a little smoother. But I'm working on that.

Stay smooth!

My outfit is really basic today. A pair of Gap jeans and a black Forever 21 shirt with a sheer back is my outfit. Then I put on simple black flats from Sam Edelman via DSW. Fucshia lips make the look a bit brighter. Criticism I should have pulled my pants up for this picture. I think it's fine for a really simple look. I should just be smoother. That's all. Stay basic!

Shopping Adventures

We went to Francesca's, and I got this top. It's a really bad picture, but the shirt is cute. It has a drawstring around the waist to cinch me in. Jeans and flats, or even heels, will look cute with this. I'm going to have to wear a white tank under it because it is see-through.

What do you think? What should I wear with it?

Here Comes the Queen!

I love dressing up, so here is one of my many outfits! I usually wear this amazing vintage Ralph Lauren blazer with a white shirt, but I wanted to be creative. I put a yellow shirt with it, which I think looks pretty sharp. I wore boots that day because it snowed. I think it would have looked better with some other shoe, but I didn't have a choice. I topped it off with a gold vintage necklace. I rolled up the sleeves to keep it from looking dated.
This is the blazers pocket detail. It's my first two initals: RL! Criticism:
It's a fabulous outfit, if I say so myself, but the hair is ridiculous. It's at a point where I can put it in a ponytail, but that's it. I think it would look best in a bun with this outfit. I think I needed better shoes, too. Well, considering the weather, it was fine, but it needed something more. Maybe black heels? I can't quite figure out what shoes would be better. Also, I need better places to take pictures. And possibly a better camera. But I still love this outfit. I kept touching the soft velvet blazer all day!

Stay regal!

21 Days of Change

I haven't posted in a while... oops. I'm doing pretty good. I went for a nice walk with my doggie yesterday. It was so nice, I didn't want to stay inside. I'm probably going to walk my other doggie today. Food-wise, I'm doing not so well. I'm trying, but I had some fries today. Ugh. Not a good idea. So I'm going to try to eat less. Wish me luck!

Not my dog... but he does smile!

21 Days of Change, Days 1 & 2

Day 1, March 23 2011

For my first day, I went on the spinning bike for 20 minutes. I felt the burn!

Oops. I didn't do anything. I promise I'll get back on the horse today.

Keep on swimming,- Dory

21 Days of Change

Today, I'm restarting 21 Days of Change. For those not in the loop, 21 Days of Change is a project in which you do something new for 21 days. After 21 days, it is said that something becomes a habit. No time's better than the present, right?

For my first act, I will excercise for 21 days. And not only going to the gym: I will walk my dogs, as it is getting warmer (fingers crossed!), play with Wii Fit, and use the spinning bike that is downstairs. I'll update here for all to see. Wish me luck!
