Sandy Beach & Pink Tulip

As promised I am trying to photograph & post my top 5 day-to-day outfits. Those perfect outfits that I love & can go to in a hurry because they are tried & tested. For some reason they just never make it to the blog!

When I first stumbled on this dress at Old Navy I thought it was nice but that the color was all wrong for me. When I noticed it had been marked down to $10 though... I thought, why not?!

At first I would only wear it with a black cardigan or jacket because of the color but one night out without covering up & I really started to like it.

Booties from Manchester Shoe Salon
It is short so I always pair it with thick tights or leggings, like these ones from We Love Colors but now that spring is here I was excited to add something bright to the mix!!

My brand new gorgeous clutch from ASOS paired up with a Forever21 necklace and some fun pink nails made me feel a little more seasonal with this outfit. Maybe some new colored tights are in order for other fun options?

Sparrow, Magpie & Robin's Egg

It seems crazy to me that somehow my favorite outfits never seem to manage ending up on the blog. My top 5 have yet to make an appearance here even though they are in constant rotation!! The only explanation I can think is that when I grab a favorite outfit I know it is going to work, meaning that in a hurry to look good, they are no brainers.

I'm currently on the hunt for a fabulous new job & that means resumes, interviews & looking great. I am putting myself to the task of photography my top 5 outfits (daily not special occasions) this week as I am out & about trying to work my magic.

This outfit, with skirt from Addition Elle has a few variation in my wardrobe but I always feel fantastic in it.

T-shirt is from Torrid with a keyhole back. I also pair this with a black long sleeve sometimes or a white tee & little black jacket.

$5 white flats pick up at WalMart
In the cooler weather this skirt looks fabulous with black or turquoise tights, boots or chunky shoes.

Necklace from local shop, Silver Daisy Design. Watch Urban Outfitters.
Sparrow purse, Manchester Shoe Salon.
Nail colour - China Glaze 'Hey Audrey' with Deborah Lippmann 'Mermaids Dream'

Thanks to Melissa from Sigh..Gush..Gasp for snapping some photos for me today!
