Fresh Starts!

January 23, 2012

First of all, I am SO HAPPY you’ve made your way to my new site and blog home.  I hope you take some time to look around.  I’ve been styling clients for some time now, but really wasn’t maximizing my potential while operating from a Blogger site.  I made the decision to create this new site some months ago, and after countless hours (both Joe’s time and my own), the site is finally a reality!  I am so thrilled to call this my new business and blog home!  Thank you for your continuing support – I couldn’t do this every day without your comments and inspiration.

Now, onto the inaugural outfit post!

I have a thing for primary colors – actually, I LOVE THEM.  I have to talk myself out of yellow/red/blue combos on a daily basis, but on this particular day, I gave into my indulgences and wore primary colors to the max.  It’s a little more fun and a little less literal with the orangey red blazer and the mustard yellow polka dot top, but it still gives me the warm fuzzies because I was wearing my favorite combo.

    The jacket is really cute. Are the blue polka dots peaking out from the sleeve part of the jacket or the shirt? I love the look!
