{Personal Style} Colorblock and Curls

After ranting about childcare expenses and child support and the "other" parent who refuses to pay it on Saturday afternoon over on the Mommy Delicious Facebook page, I figured it was time for some Saturday night fun.

So I went on a date. And it was nice.

I really like the color purple and they way it looks against my skin tone so I opted for a blouse in that color. The outfit was color-blocked to perfection with a green cropped jacket (last seen here), black skinnies, and over-the-knee boots.

I curled my hair because, let's face it, that's always fun. And my face was beat with all kinds of MAC and Bobbi Brown and Rimmel London make-up. Just lovely and just what I needed.

I asked my date to take a picture of me, but he didn't take a full length. Bummer. I didn't want to be that girl who says, "Take it again! This is going on the Internet, ya know?!" After all, I don't want him to think that I'm cray cray. Yet.

It's always great to get out and have a drink or two when you're in a funk! It's such a picker-upper.

Hope you have a fabulous week. Stay stylish!


  1. You look great! I love a drink (or two) myself!

    Have a good week.

  2. I love the outfit! I dread the thought of paying childcare expenses when my son goes to daycare, etc. As the breadwinner, the expense falls on me but I could only imagine what its like paying all alone.

  3. I like how you paired the purple with green. Great look!

  4. Getting dressed up always does the trick. Love the color blocking combo. You rocked it.

  5. you always look absolutely stunning!!!

  6. I love that color combo! You look so pretty!
    Girl, go ahead and ask him for the second picture - we gotta see the shoe game! He might as well get to know the cray-cray from the beginning, hehe!

  7. Love the color blocking! Hope you had a good time on the date!

  8. You look gorgeous- as always! Yes, it's rejuvenating to go on a date. I'm going on one tonight, after work :). Now I know how to pose for the camera. I'm going to do that one hand on the hip pose :).

  9. You do no wrong when it comes to fashion. I would love to hang out in your closet for a few days! The color blocking is done to perfection. The green and purple definitely pop. And love that you paired it with black skinnies and boots and just the right amount of accessories!

  10. Green & purple, very unexpected! Stopping by from Monday Mingle. Have a great weekend!

  11. Love the colors and as always you are looking fabulous!

  12. Love the colorblocking-- I too am a big fan of purple. I won't even begin to comment on childcare expenses and lack of support lest this be a full page report. Sheesh!.

    Glad you had fun!



I love reading what you have to say!
