I have been a little MIA for the past week or so, but the Business Casual styling has not stopped.  While I enjoy putting together outfits for work, it can be a little hard to keep from feeling like my work wardrobe is a routine.

BCOOTD: Alternative Suiting 
The Styling
Suit Jacket @ Banana Republic 
Lace Detail Button Down Shirt @ TJ Maxx
Pumps @ Nine West
Madison Gathered Leather Bag @ Coach

Sometimes a plain suit needs a little oomph.  Nothing like a small change to add a little interest back to that classic work uniform.  I say it's as simple as adding a little lace. See all the difference it can make?

Starting a new job brings with it more than just the duties at the office.  For me, the hardest part has been trying to work my current clothes into a work appropriate wardrobe (without having to shop too much).

Red Mint

...And A Little Leopard Too!
How I Styled It
Mint Skinny Jeans
Grommet Skinny Belt
Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch (MAC)
Wild Pair Platform Wedges
Michele Urban Square Watch

Recently, I discovered that pairing red and mint green makes for a lovely combo.  It's a great way to wear red and green without it having a Christmasy feel.  Plus, it looks amazing when you throw in the leopard print. :)

Fun Times in Mexico

 Rosarita & Ensenada in Baja California, Mexico

For my friend's birthday over the weekend, we ventured across the border for some bday festivities.  I'll admit that I was a little nervous to go.  This was especially because all the crazy stories I heard recently about the dangers of driving to border towns in Mexico.  But I have to say that going was one of the best experiences I've had.

Mexico was beautiful and we all had a really great time.  Check out some of the highlights from our little weekend getaway. ;) Plus, you can catch a little sneak peak of one of my latest makes (sweater shirt above). Enjoy!

HAPPY 2013!!!

I'm BAACK!!!
The Holiday season has been such a wonderful time and such a great way to usher in the new year.  I know I have been MIA for a min! But I have been thinking about you all a lot and the direction of this blog in the upcoming year.

A lot has changed since I last posted. Namely, I got a new job, which I am so blessed to have.  However, my sewing time has diminished and my style has had to change to accomodate work requirements.  Getting adjusted to the work world has been tiring but rewarding, although I've been so sad that my blog has been on the super back burner.  However, I can't wait to get back into my  blogging full blast.

I have a few changes in the works to accomodate my sewing/blogging hobby and my new career.  I hope you all will stay tuned in 2013 and come along on this journey with me in 2013 as I pursue my career full time and my dreams after work hours.

In the meantime, we have some serious catching up to do, don't we? Stay tuned this month, as I catch you all up on what was going on while I was MIA for the last couple of months.  I want to share with you guys not only my latest makes but also, what I am rocking these days to adapt my business casual work dress code with the current items in wardrobe (including my makes).  It's been pretty fun actually and I have been dying to share my work looks with you all.  ;)

Hope you all don't mind, If I get started right away!

Below are some pics of one of the holiday events I attended recently, with my really good friend.  Do take a peek below for more pics.
