When I think "man," I obviously think of Will Schuester. He's a vest and polo (or tee) kind of man. And I imagine he wears scarves every once in a while to liven up an outfit. Too keep it from being TOO mannish (and too blah), I added some comics related pins that make me oh so happy. I also cuffed my jeans even though it's freeeeezing outside, and it might even rain later today.

You can tell that I'm expecting to do a lot of work today. I am sans makeup, sans jewelry, and my hair is pulled up to get it out of the way. I've got oodles planned to get done. Hopefully, my coffee (black, laced with raspberry syrup) will keep me fueled all day long.

Today is a happy day! The always adorable Dee orchestrated a denim challenge last week. I am so thrilled to be part of her post! Check out all the other lovely ladies who participated in this challenge.

Lastly, I just want to say hi! to all my followers, new and old. I am soooo thrilled to be part of this awesome blogging community. Blogging has seriously helped me be more creative and optimistic about my wardrobe and my body. Stop by and leave a comment about yourself! A little tidbit of you :) And! follow me on twitter so we can continue the conversation!

Looking forward to get to know you all a little bit more :)

  2. Sometimes I wish I were a guy. Not because dressing would easier, per say, but because I think they get to focus more on the detail, since for the most part, their outfits are mostly the same. Especially when it comes to dressier clothes. The pins are so cute :)

  5. Oh my goodness Laura, your last comment on my blog was so dang sweet, thank you so much!!
    The minute that I read the word Will Schuester it ALL made sense! :) The vest you have on is SO Schuester! & the shoes add a bit of femininity but are still adding that "suit-look."
    & I'm so glad that you decided to start a blog. Your blog is definitely a breath of fresh air to me! :)
