Woke up late, threw hair in a pony tail, put on my favorite casual skirt (think I have worn it three times in the last week) and leopard T....pile on some jewelry, wrangle up sweaty kids, 2 backpacks, purse, laptop and run out the door...whew...

Dress-Ann Taylor Loft/Sandals-Indigo/Jewelry-Target, Francesca's, DIY
Way too much thought went into this outfit today. I have a cocktail hour meet and greet with a client and the Blackhawks again, then spending some time at the Blackhawks Convention. So, I did not want to dress to fancy, but I still wanted to look dressed up and mature. Instead of my classic black cocktail dress, I though I would go with this blue dress. I wanted to make it a bit more casual, so I replaced the fabric belt that came with the dress with this more rugged looking brown one. Now came the bigger dilemma, how much jewelry... I frequent throw on multiple necklaces, rings and sleeves of bracelets...love me some jewelry...but, I decided to reel it in a bit today. The debate was do I overwhelm and stand out with my jewelry, or do I keep it simpler, not to stand out and scream "hi" at the cocktail party... I sometimes feel like I have to stifle my personality for some situations...I don't like it, but I deal. I decided today to take the middle path and wear 1 layered necklace, 1 chunky ring, 2 big bangles on one arm and a watch and 3 small beaded bangles on the other...oh, and small gold studs in the ears. I know it is probably more adornment than most people wear, but I love it...so there! Almost forgot, the only high wedge sandals that are comfortable were a must...hockey players are tall!!
Looking at these photos, I realize how much younger I look in casual clothes with my hair up...things that make me think!
Hope everybody has a good weekend. I plan to go shopping and spend some of my birthday money. Nordstroms's Sale...here I come!
