Moody Style: Tossing and Turning


For some reason I’m having a little trouble sleeping tonight.  I wish that I can say that this is the first this has happened to me, but I can't.  It happens more often than I care to remember and it really sucks.  Right now it’s about 3am and I’m not sure why I’m awake and why I’m not the least bit sleepy.  It could be the fact that I took a quick nap earlier when I got home from work or because of the mini argument I had with my boyfriend.  I’m not sure what it is because I’ve experienced these two examples before and I’ve been able to fall asleep with no problem in the past.  What’s frustrating is that I’m going to be super exhausted all day especially since my alarm is scheduled to go off in a few hours.

Well my fellow bloggers, I figure that since I’m up, then I might as well post a picture of one of my outfits that I wore to work this week.  I wore one of my favorite skirts from Anthropologie – the aqua san pedro pencil skirt. It doesn’t look aqua in the picture, but trust me it is.  The lighting was a little off.  Have any of you suffered from a little insomnia from time to time? How do you get rid of it?  Do any of you do anything special to ensure that you have a restful slumber?  I would love to know, so this doesn’t happen again.  Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Let It Shine


Hi everyone…I hope that you all are having a wonderful week so far.  I can’t believe that this week is the last week in August.  I don’t even know where the time has gone.  As you may have noticed by the lack of posts on my blog, I’ve been pretty busy on my side of the world.  My new job has been keeping pretty busy during the week.  Anyways, I wanted to share a quick photo of an outfit that I wore to the office last Friday.  I love the look of all of the colored jeans that everyone is wearing, but I haven’t found a pair that that fit me right.  So, I started looking at colored crops and ankle pants at various stores and I finally found a pair that fit me perfectly.  For the past several months, I’ve been looking for a yellow pair of jeans/pants and these Banana Republic Sateen Crops in new dandelion turned out to be the perfect shade.  These crops are the perfect pants for work – they are versatile and comfortable as well as fashionable.  I was able to shine bright and make a statement thanks to these crops. Do you have a favorite pair of colorful jeans or pants that you’ve been wearing all summer? Let me know in the comments.

Fresh Picks to Follow – Pavé The Way


What is pavé? Here’s a hint.  It doesn’t involve concrete, asphalt, or bricks. Pavé, pronounced pah-vay, is from the French for “paved or cobblestoned.”  It’s a technique that sets many gemstones close together to form a pattern-like flat surface. The Pavé setting gives the illusion that surface is completely made of the same gem. Pavé jewelry has the amazing ability to catch the light and it reflects it in the most dazzling and sparkling way.  Here are my top 10 favorite pavé jewelry pieces.  Do you have any pavé jewelry in your collection?  What’s your favorite piece?  Let me know in the comments.
