What to Wear – Business Event

I had an event to go to for work Monday night and I didn’t want to wear a tired old suit so instead, I jazzed up a cute black jumper.  It was still conservative enough for the type of event I was attending, but it allowed me to add some flare and personality.  Here is what I have put together for what to wear to a business event.

1.J.Crew Factory polka dot blouse; 2. Black jumper dress, similar at Bluefly; 3. Nice bright jacket from J. Crew; 4. DKNY opaque black tights; 5.Essie’s she’s pampered; 6. Interesting heels from Anthropologie; 7. A cute sticky notes and fun pen from Paper Source for note taking; 8. kate spade handbag, large enough for all your stuff!

Homemade Valentine’s Day Cards

I made a couple Valentine’s Day Cards this year I wanted to share…

For family, from our sweet baby girl:

I did a photo shoot that went wild as Z only wanted to bite the styrofoam hearts I pinned to a pink blanket to make an on-theme photo backdrop.  I got a few silly photos I decided to put together as you see above and then glued onto heart vellum paper and then onto a red card I stamped with white hearts.
Then I discovered the glue pen recently and used it to write a fancy Happy Valentine’s Day inside the card with sparkly silver glitter.

For my husband, from me:

I made a fun card by printing and coloring a Corona bottle and gluing it to a heart stamped card.  Then I punched a hole in the top where a hand-drawn lime is peeking through…
…with a cute message on the inside.
Happy Valentine’s Day
