Giveaway Winner & OOTD

First, I would like to announce that the winner of my giveaway is……. AppGal!


AppGal, please check your email, and congratulations!


So, the weather here in NJ has continued to be absolutely crazy! We were supposed to get rain during the day yesterday and then snow at night, but we ended up with five inches of snow during the day (that yes, I was driving in) My school is usually pretty good about closing in these situations (where I work, there are lots of hills, winding roads, and the roads on both sides have ditches) , but no one was expecting this weather. We ended up getting out for a half day, and a bus did end up in a ditch (no one was hurt, thank goodness!) And I just got the call that we are off today, so I’m sure my day will consist of scouring the Internet for decorating ideas for my condo!

Anyway, here is an outfit I wore earlier this week that I hadn’t yet got around to posting. After the intense color of my last two outfits, I decided a more muted pallet was in order. I gave it an edge though with pattern mixing, and added my fun Coach ring that I bought in Las Vegas last year after winning on roulette! Have a great day everyone!!



Cardigan: LOFT
Shell, Necklace: Ann Taylor
Pants: NY & Co
Shoes: Nine West
Ring: Coach

Just a reminder, I need all Teachers have Class and Style submissions by the end of the day. I won’t be around this weekend, so I need to get the post all set to go today and tomorrow. Thanks 🙂

    Cute Coach ring! “Muted” or not, you’re still avoiding black (except stripes) or gray, so you’re keeping away the winter wardrobe blahs. Yay!

    What a weather forecast! I just typed a big long story but deleted it. Let’s just say that a trace of snow in Seattle=region shuts down. Five inches would equal utter chaos!

    I’m looking forward to combine the 30% new arrivals with my teacher’s discount at Loft! Take a look at HGTV’s rate my space blog. They have tons of decorating ideas. We had 8 inches of snow last night. No school for us as well : )

    I love this LOFT cardigan! And the Coach ring is really nice. That’s great that you bought it after winning at roulette. Roulette is the only gambling game I play in Las Vegas. Aside from the slot machines 🙂

    Awwwwwwww, that ring! It just melts my heart with its adorable-ness. And I like your muted look, just as I like your colorful outfits. It may not be bold hue-wise, but it still looks like a lot of fun with the stripes and speckles!

    Lynmara- I don’t think I’m going to get a chance to get to LOFT this weekend 🙁 I hope you find some great things! And I will definitley be checking out that HGTV site!

    Kileen- We ended up with a total of 18 by the end…crazy!

    Sweet Laundry- I’m sure I will be wearing this ring constantly in the spring and summer!

    littlemissfanciepants- Thanks! LOFT is so great, glad you’ve been finding things there 🙂

    amy kelinda- I saw the ring earlier in my Vegas trip, became obssessed with it, and kept going to “visit” it haha…then I finally bought it!

    You look cozy & pretty. I love your gorgeous cocktail ring and that it has such rich PEACOCK COLORS. But I am absolutely in love with your wedding/engagement ring, it is so stunning. Hubby did a great job. 😉
