Happy Hump Day!!!
We’ve made it more than halfway through the work week! That’s cause to celebrate. Take time to treat yourself tonight to a bubble bath, a glass of wine, or 30 minutes of a good book (or all of the above).
My work week is a little crazed as the man and I are finally getting to our weekend getaway that we were planning for Valentine’s Day weekend. He passed his Nurse Practitioner certification exam (woohoo!), and now we will be getting some much needed R&R this weekend.

The fun weekend plans mean that I’m cramming more work and more blogging into the week so that I can veg and be electronic free this weekend!
All this work calls for a little fun with my wardrobe, so today, I threw on some colorful pieces that put me in the mindset of spring even if the weather is not yet cooperating.

|Bracelets: LOFT, Express, Target|
I picked up a couple of pieces from the Peter Pilotto line for Target a while back. I love the surfer-vibe of this top and can’t wait to wear it this summer with a printed skirt and more bright colors.
The blue blazer brings out the vivid colors of the top, while the black pants and shoes keep the look conservative enough for work.
The more I wear this blazer, the more I realize that I’m not a fan of the fit – it’s too long and the proportions are off, even after alterations. I’m going to be on the lookout this spring for a cobalt blazer in a petite fit because I love this color but long for a more flattering fit.
It’s a good reminder to myself to be more vigilant with my shopping to get the right piece the first time – I am too easily seduced by a color, pattern, or other detail. :-/

Are you a fan of bold, colorful prints or do you like to keep things more low-key? Any exciting weekend plans around the bend??
