{Dress for Success}

Friday, January 8, 2010

Finally, the most blessed day of my week is here... and it's been calling my name ALL week. Why is that after we have short work weeks {due to the holidays}, it looks like there is nothing to look forward to after the rush rush of Christmas and New Years?? It's like I bundle up for the rest of the winter and hibernate until I can see the green coming back in the trees and the temperatures actually go above 45 degrees- ahhhh! It can't come soon enough for this summer loving girl!
To get you in the spirit, I thought I'd post some new looks coming our way this spring from some of our favorite retailers--even though I can't shop right now, it sure is fun to browse! And better yet, I am featuring dresses because that tends to be my wardrobe staple--for work, play, and fun!! hmmm, maybe this will lead to a weekly "Fashionable Friday"??

If I continue with this "Fashionable Friday" sharade, what would you like to see featured? shoes, handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, swimwear??? I'm at your disposal on this!

Have a great weekend friends!! Hope you can enjoy some rest & relaxation-- I will be working away on my calligraphy, cooking dinner for my sweetie, training it up at the Y {6 miles this week so far} and getting packed for my trip next week =)
