First I must say that I am so overdue for a haircut and highlights that it's ridiculous. My hair is much too long and doesn't do anything I want it to. My roots are killing me and make my hair look permanently dirty. I need to get in to see Bruce ASAP! I say all of that to apologize for how shitty my hair looks lately and especially in this picture. Wore this to work - actually put in a full day as I had to meet with our bookkeeper and get my own work done as well. I love the layers of ruffles on this top and usually wear it in the summer because it's so lightweight, but with the cardi over it, it was fine.

I had originally planned to wear this great ivory wool coat over this - it has the most beautiful lining, but I decided that it seriously isn't flattering, so I think I'm going to have to get rid of it. The rest of the outfit isn't particularly inspiring, but it was comfortable! I had planned on going in to work, but then got the call that I wasn't needed, so I got dressed for no reason. I am trying to make an effort to wear these shoes more since I realized how much I love them.

I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on Tanesha of Girl with Curves. Though she has much more up top than me, I figured this dress would look good on me since it looked so fabulous on her. I styled it differently than she did, of course. I like accentuating my waist with a wide belt, and I liked black under it instead of white. I thought I had a long sleeve turtleneck, but it must be in storage because it isn't here. But this one looked okay under the dress. Also, the necklace I'm wearing just gets lost in the print, so next time I won't bother with it. As the weather gets nicer, I can wear this with a black cardi over it. And how awesome that it has pockets?!? After work, I went out to dinner with Michelle to celebrate my birthday. We went to Charcoal, and had a wonderful dinner taking advantage of the 5280 deals during Denver Restaurant Week. Really great food and wine, our server was really knowledgeable, and the ambiance was nice. I recommend it!
