Let's get right to it ladies. I felt like a "power bitch/girl boss" in this outfit. Or is it #powerbitch #girlboss? Either way, if I could wear a great coat, black dress, and perfect pumps every day of the week, I think I'd get a lot more done around here, and I think my head would probably get a little bloated. As much as I love being comfortable in jeans and a tee shirt, there's nothing quite like pulling yourself together in something more feminine. When I look sloppy, that tends to affect my productivity and overall attitude. I can't make eye contact with the barista at Starbucks if I look like a human gym locker. It may sound silly to some, but the power of dressing up is real. And for the record, I did get my to-do list completed. I finished my Christmas shopping, we dropped off Nettie at doggy daycare, enjoyed a tasty brunch, and had a nice visit with the in-laws. Not bad for a Sunday. Let's see if I can channel this energy for the rest of the week because it's about to get real. Real crazy. I'm sure you feel it too, so wishing you lots of luck!


  1. You look lovely Noelle, and I agree with your dressed up philosophy :)

    Loving your round toe pumps, I'm getting more into them now but only own 2 pairs. They're much more feminine than pointy toe and on me also more flattering (I have small feet for my height)

  2. Either way it's great and definitely says you've got shit to do!

  3. You are so right about the power of dressing up! It is a confidence booster and motivator for sure. Love your dress and jacket! And of course your signature colored pumps!
