I’m back! That is back at it in more ways than one. Boy have I missed blogging and hearing from many of you here on my little space on the web! Lets just say I have been a bit busy during the month of April. So many things to share with you, my readers.
Today marks weeks, yes that was plurl, since my last post and it is offically May 1st! Tomorrow is a special day, it is MY BIRTHDAY!! It is my 28th birthday to be exact. I am not ashamed nor will I hold back my age if asked, I get better with age. 🙂 At least I think so. Okay, okay enough about my birthday celebration which starts today and will last all weekend if you wanted to know.
As for the month of April that seemed to come and go in the blink of an eye, I miss you. Great things are happening and I am pretty excited about them. It has been one heck of a week to get out of bed for work, but no worries it is Fri-YAY! No worries I took photos that I will be sharing here on the blog and some videos with our GoPro camera. So I will move onto my exciting news that I shared before my mini blog-cation.. In case you missed it, I will be opening a women’s online boutique in late May called 7th and Park. What else is there to look forward to in the month of May, um the pools open! Hello! Okay, okay what are you guys up to this month? Anything exciting or interesting for your month of May?
As for my style, I will not lie I have been struggling lately. Like anyone else, I have my off days where getting totally ready is just not going to happen. Generally seasonal changes take some getting used to for me. However, this black maxi and chambray together will never get old. It is comfortable and classic for anyone to pull off. Throw on some accessories and you are out the door! How do you wear your chambray?

Lets be honest, I love my basics. Everything about this look screams basic! Nothing says wearing heels everyday is the only way to show your style. Sometimes a girl just wants to have a laid back look and I go straight to basic pieces for that kind of day. These Converse are by far all I had hoped they would be and more. Convers-ation is getting real….. These Converse ‘shoreline’ slip ons have been on my ‘shopping list’ and radar for a while now. Go. Get. Them. Now. What girl can’t love her chucks every now and again? These are going to be a great go to shoe for spring and summer days. How do you all wear your basic and/or converse?
P.S. This pair of denim was on clearance, plus an additional % off. Ended up paying $12 for a pair of high waisted, distressed denim that was on my ‘shopping list’. Score! I have a love for all pants high waisted. 🙂

Let me begin todays post by saying I am very sorry for being somewhat MIA here on the blog. Many of you are such great followers and come back daily for more. I thank each of you so much for having such an interest in a normal everyday gal from the Midwest and my blog. With that being said, I am trying to keep the posts to 3-4 times per week. Once the winter is gone, I promise to have better locations and light for these photos. 🙂
Who says basic pieces cannot be cute? The beginning of the work week is always difficult to get back in the swing of things, but your style does not have to be. I took a few basics pieces and made a comfortable outfit suitable for any occasion. Whether you work in an office setting, classroom setting or travel for work, this outfit works for anyone. I know, you do not want to wear heels in the snow or cold weather? I don’t either, but you can wear a warm boot and change your shoes as soon as you get into the office. I have always been a huge ‘neutrals’ kinda gal. Keeping it classic and clean is always a favorite look of mine. If you do not have these basic pieces in your closet, be sure to check out a few of my favorites from above. My oh my I am loving this gold cuff I got on sale at Banana Republic Factory recently. What are some of your favorite basic pieces?
