Monopoly Money Monday

Another Twitter suggestion for Monopoly Money Monday came from Amy, yet another fabulous ABCer. She suggested summer accessories like shoes, hates, sunglasses and bags. Much like Wallets, I had trouble with them and they will be posted separately. But I did do three different $100 dollar boards for Flip Flops, Hats and Sunglasses.

Which one would you spend your $100.00 on? Or would you spend it on a combination of all three?

It’s safe to say that mint is my color of choice in the spring/summer. It’s such a fun, classic color that can be paired with so many colors that is almost seems like a neutral. Not to mention it reminds me of ice cream which is never a bad thing. Lately I have been try to grow my mint collection of clothes/accessories/nail polishes and I’ve been pretty successful. I’m not there yet but I’m getting there.

Below are some outfits idea that incorporate my personal color of the year:

The Maxi Dress

The Maxi Dress

The maxi dress is a major, major obsession of mine in the summer. It is one of the most versatile pieces in a wardrobe. Work, errands, day with the girls, even the pool. A maxi dress works for just about every occasion you could think of. And it is a great piece for every and any body type. Not to mention how easy it is to throw on and style. Last year I went on a binge maxi dress shopping spree and will most likely do the same again this year. It is my go to spring/summer look and I’m not ashamed to say it.

Below I took the dress I’m lusting over most for Dorothy Perkins(sadly they don’t have my size:-( ) and styled it three ways I would wear it for three kind of situations.

Interview Style

A friend has an interview next week and requested I try to pull together some interview wear. Now I must admit it has been 15 years since I had to go on an interview so I am a tad out of practice. But as the HR department at my place of business I styled looks based on what I would personally find acceptable. The main thing really to avoid when it comes to dressing for an interview is trends. You want to remain as classic as possible, but can include some interest like color and pattern and even texture. Just make sure the patter is appropriate and dress based on where you are interviewing. If you are interviewing at say, a law firm, I would be as neutral as possible. But if you are interviewing at a less professional place, definitely brighten things up a tad. Also fit is important. Whatever you do end up wearing make sure it isn’t too tight, low cut or too baggy. This is you chance to make a great first impression. If you feel good in what you have on, others will take notice.
