PurelyChic has moved!


So I've been mentioned a few times that I was in the process of moving my blog from blogger to my own hosted site and it's finally done! I love the new design and layout- it's much more my style! I was getting frustrated with blogger because of the layout and customization option and never felt like my blog looked like me. I am working on getting this site to link automatically to the new one, but in the mean time you can check it out here! (www.PurelyChic.com) I won't be posting anymore on this site and if you follow me, you'll have to request that again on the new site. Hope you like it and thank you for reading!!

XOXO,

Plaid Pencil

Top: Zara (similar here), Skirt: TJ Maxx (similar here), Booties: Rachel Roy, Sunglasses: Michael Kors

Hopefully everyone's week has started off good! Mine has been a little exhausting because my brain likes to ponder life's mysteries right as my head hits the pillow. Anyone else have this problem? The worst is when I get to bed early, planning to get a good night's sleep and wake up veerrrry early for the gym, and then I lay there for hours. Then I look over at my husband and he's out cold since the second he closed his eyes. It takes all my self control not to wake him up to tell him how frustrated I am that I can't fall asleep. Actually I used to do that a lot, but I've been working on it. Anyways, point of the story is I have high hopes of going to bed early tonight.You know you're an adult when that's what you're looking forward to!

This is a very simple outfit that can be worn to work or out with friends. I have worn it for both. I found this skirt for $10 dollars and was pretty excited about it! I don't have a ton of plaid in my closet so it was a needed addition...now stripes, boy do I have a ton of those. 

Thanks for reading!

Sneak Peek: Plaid Pencil


The last few weeks have been crazy to say the least! We moved last week, and even though it wasn't too far from where we were, the packing and unpacking takes just as long. Taking pictures the week before we moved was too stressful and finding anything after we moved was worse! Here's how it went: Let's take pictures today....where's the camera? where's the camera chip? No problem, I can find those but we don't have our desk set up yet so how can I use the imac? No problem, I'll use the macbook. Oh, the battery is dead and the charger got a short in it while we moved...hmm, okay so I'll go buy a new cord. You know what, I think pictures will have to wait, lol

 And after all of that, I'm sitting on the floor with the imac writing this. I'll never move again.

Anyways, I finally got my act together...new post tomorrow!

PS My new site will be live in a week! YAY!

Thanks for reading!

Neutrals

1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11

Everyone keeps talking about Spring this and Spring that and I'm over here waiting for Winter...lol, doesn't that sound like something you'd see on pinterest? Or maybe I'm not as witty as I think I am but I did get my wish about the rain because it's raining today!! One thing I am looking forward to wearing are wedge sandals, so I guess there is always an up side :)

Thanks for reading!

XOXO,

Relaxed


Tshirt- Victoria's Secret (Similar), Pants: H&M, Jacket: Loehmann's, Shoes: Heels (love these), Hat: Eric Javits, Purse: Phillip Lim, Sunglasses: Michael Kors


For the record, I never noticed that my shirt said "sexy" in big letters until I started looking through these pictures, lol. I own three of these sleeps shirts and they all say something different, but I love how comfortable they are. I have been really into casual sweats that can be dressed up, particularly the ones that are herringbone, tweed etc. They make it easy to be lazy but not look it. I always have an eye out for new pairs.

Side note, I had a great time celebrating my birthday over the weekend- I feel blessed to have such wonderful family and friends! 

Thanks for reading!
