This month has been a crazy one with travels to China than last weekend to New York.  I haven’t been able to post on my blog as much as I would like, but I’m back on track this week!  Yesterday I read my sister’s post and it was one of my favorite posts ever; it explains the many stresses but joys of being an entrepreneur, check it out here.   In the year and a half of starting my jewelry line with her, I started my style blog and became a mommy.   There are days I feel overwhelmed and just plain terrible at everything, but then I have those days that are amazing.  Watching my son giggle and smile, seeing my business grow tremendously this year, and having the support of my readers of this blog, it is all amazing and I am so appreciative.  Thank you.

On a lighter front, this outfit is a bit of colored prep.  I’m sure you’ve noticed my love of the color red, but it really is so versatile.  A jacket, a pair of shoes, and some gloves; they all mix and match with most things especially the color blue.  Are there colors in your closet that you love?

*Shopping tip:  I’ve been dying for these Manolo BB Suede Pumps

Look at what I found on sale at J. Crew (go to the sale section through the link)!  Got them yesterday!!

They are so comfortable, I think I need them in other colors.  So many amazing shoes on sale, love this one too!

    You look absolutely fantastic! I loved your sister's post yesterday and I can only imagine the additional stress of being a Mom adds to all of that. You seem to do it effortlessly and both you and your sister are such an inspiration!ChelseaHaute Child in the City

    Love the outfit! You've accomplished so much in such a short period of time, you should be VERY proud of yourself! When I'm feeling down about my accomplishment (or rather, lack-thereof) I always think of this proverb: "Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid of standing still."
