I love how an outfit can transform your mood. Whether it be because you have a job interview, a big work presentation, or just because you are feeling a little down in the dumps, putting on the perfect outfit can change your attitude and say, “Today I am kicking butt and taking names – this girl means business!” That is exactly how I feel in this outfit! While for each person that outfit may be a little different, this combo is it for me. I definitely think black is my power color. I always feel strong and oh so chic in that color. I also always feel more confident in a sleek great fitting pencil skirt. I love a full midi skirt, but I have an obsession with pencil skirts! I am also a huge shoe lover, so the power piece for me is always in the shoes! I could live in these Enzo Angiolini pumps. You have seen them on the blog oh so many times, but it is because they are such an amazing shoe! They go with both pants and skirts, and are pretty comfortable. If you feel strong and confident in what you have on, I think nothing will stand in your way. What is your favorite thing to wear when you need a little confidence boost?

You may remember a couple posts I did in December showcasing the fabulous Christmas decorations at Walt Disney World. Well, today I am going to share the most important part of my trip – What I Wore. Walt Disney World has FOUR theme parks which means lots of walking, rides and souvenir shopping! We were only visiting for two and half days, so we had a lot of ground to cover. My outfit post today is slightly different to what I wore at Disney. The main difference is the shoes. I wore black ballet flats that normally are super comfy on my all day shopping trips. By the end of day one at Disney, my feet were definitely feeling a bit sore and tired. I started to notice that so many people were wearing Toms. At the time, I did not own a pair, but I knew my sister owned a couple pairs. So when I returned home I asked, are they really that comfortable? She said yes, so I knew I needed a pair! She also recommended sizing down as the shoes stretch a little after wear, so I did just that. I haven’t had the chance to break them in yet to tell you how they hold up, but the thousands of people I saw wearing them at Disney and my sister cannot be wrong.
One item that I wore everyday at Disney, was my small cross-body bag. It was small enough that I didn’t have to take it off when I was on a ride. I am not a huge fan of putting my belongings in those little pouches on roller coasters. It held my wallet and phone which was really all I needed. Disney has these new bracelets you wear when you are a resort guest and they work as your room key, park admission, fast pass ticket, credit card, and photo pass. Definitely reduces the number of items you have to keep up with! For my clothes, it was all about comfort. We had no time for outfit changes, so I needed something I could wear all day and all night. Skinny jeans with just a hint of stretch are perfect for all day wear! My Pleione top also fit the bill for a super comfy yet stylish top. Since we visited in December I also brought a couple scarves. I preferred this to a jacket because during the day the sun warms you up a bit, but at night it gets chilly. I liked being able to wrap my scarf around my arms and create my own little jacket when I was cold. So there you have it, one all day of doing touristy things outfit. Happy Wednesday Ya’ll!

We are almost to the end of January which means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! It’s time to start planning that perfect Valentine’s Day gift! I love themed gifts and what better theme for Valentine’s Day than HEARTS! Whether shopping for a special someone, a sister, or a friend, a heart themed gift is a fun way to say, “I heart you!” You can add one of the above gifts with a heart shaped box of chocolates and put them in a heart gift bag. Okay maybe I am a little heart obsessed, but I mean look at the items above! Can you blame me?

Oh Monday you are here again, and so quickly! I had 101 things on my to do list this weekend, so it seemed to fly by! I got tons done, but I feel like my weekend lasted a nanosecond and here we are at Monday again. Mondays may have a bad rep, but they are a great day to pull out a fun I will conquer this week outfit! This houndstooth skirt and bow tie blouse combo is going to do just that! I love the houndstooth print on this skirt. It is a print that I have not found too often on skirts. It is also a timeless print and a great thick material so I can wear it for years to come. The color I am wearing is sold out, but I linked the blue/green one in the details section above which is just as gorgeous! I don’t know why, but bow top blouses always make me feel so ready to tackle the day. Kind of like don’t get in my way today, I mean business. I know it may sound silly, but when you have a piece like that you cannot help but want to wear it all the time. I have also styled this top in a previous post with pants and it still had that conquer the day vibe. Alright Monday, let’s do this!!
