I Just Love Dressing in Layers! (and I love these Sole Society “Elisa” pumps!)

I hate to start the year off with a short, rushed post, but such is life.  My job’s big conference is less than a week away, and it’s major crunch time in the office, so I don’t have a ton of time on my hands! Yesterday I worked 11 straight hours with no lunch break…yeah, it’s not a game.  Fab came home from work early, and saved the day with a salad, or I probably would have withered away at my desk.  I realize this is very unhealthy.  I need to put my health and well being first, but it’s so hard when you have 8 million deadlines on the same day, and nobody else seems to care if you eat or not. Lol.  Anyway, you guys don’t care about this, so I don’t know why I’m still talking about it! Lol.  The point is, I’m sorry I don’t have any fun stories to share about my outfit, but this is all I got… It’s cold in Atlanta, and dressing in layers is so much cuter than just throwing on a big coat! So, I layered a light puffer vest under navy polka dot blazer and viola! Warm and cozy…and still cute! Done and done.

Oh…and I LOVE these shoes. Lol! Navy blue…pointy toe…bow embellishments…love, love love!
