You Light Up My LIfe...

Working women today...

  Skirt-Gap/Cardigan-LOFT/Booties-Steve Madden/Jewelry-Black Sheep, Target, Bauble Bar
Meetings I decided to go with a conservative pencil skirt and cardigan...but add fun to the outfit my favorite booties and stack of bracelets.
The adorable J9 from j9styleblog gave me a sunshine award.  I love that her blog is about empowering and enriching women so they can gain back their sense of self one outfit at a time.  I must say these things mean a lot to me. Some days I wondering if anyone is actually "listening" when I blog and this award means my rambling a don't fall on deaf ears. 

Why did you start blogging
I started my corner of the Internet after I went back to work after having Alex. I have always been into clothes and style and needed a place to show my style and just vent about everyday life as a mom, employee, wife and women. 
Who/what inspires you?
I am inspired by everything around me.  Other bloggers... Of course!  Also, magazines, TV shows and just people I see on the street!!
What is your favorite outfit of all time?
S0, I went back through my photo archives and I kept gravitating back towards two recent outfit...both involving polkadot sweaters...styled with a pencil skirt or skinny pants.
What do you wear when you are feeling not so fabulous?
Usually a great dress, cinched with a belt makes me feel a bit better about my reflection.

How do you fit blogging into your life?
It is not as easy to find time to blog as it used to be.  Working only 3 days per work means the days are pretty busy and finding time to take outfit photos is hard.  So now, I end up writing posts and reading other blogs at night, after the kids are in bed. 

What is one place you would love to travel to?
Recently I have had the hankering for a Hawaiin vacation.  I want to hike up a volcano...sit on the beach reading book in peace and quiet...sounds wonderful!

What is your favorite color?

What is your favorite book/favorite author?
Any Vince Flynn book...especially involving Mitch a must read for me.  I love a good action, government spy, conspiracy story.

Who is your favorite designer?
I don't really have a favorite designer...

Where do you mostly shop for clothes?
Nordstrom's and Target

I know I am supposed to nominate 10 bloggers...but I want any bloggers who would like to share, to answer the questions too!  I would love to hear all about all of you!!
