I'm keeping it short today ladies because I'm not feeling well this week. I've been battling allergies for months, but now it's clear that this is a cold. I'm not complaining too much because it's actually been nice to slow down and get some R & R. Hopefully I'll be back to myself by the time the weekend rolls around so I can get out of my yoga pants and work out tanks that have been pulling double duty as couch potato gear. Coincidentally, I started feeling a little off the day after these pictures were taken. I thought I'd had a little too much wine Saturday night, but not so. I haven't quite looked the same since either. Aside from my wine-colored finger nail polish that's staying strong, I've been a mess. If it's one thing to take away from this outfit, it's the nails! Essie "Recessionista" is a must-have. Go do yourself a favor and slap it on immediately. You can thank me later :)


  1. I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well! I hope you get better soon!

  2. Feel better soon Noelle! I'm sick again too...this winter has been unrelenting!

    I adore this outfit on you - I know I say this a lot but you have an amazing eye for putting dainty & chic outfits together ... You always look so ladylike & fresh <3

  8. Thank you pretty ladies very much! You can never go wrong with black and white. I also decided to throw in some deep red because I got the clutch on major sale and it matched my nails :)
