today’s post is short and sweet. and for those of you receiving the post by email, i understand there has been a glitch the past two days after the website crashed. the problems are being sorted out one-by-one. keep your fingers crossed this post goes out without a hitch. if not, it’s back to the drawing board. but back to our regularly scheduled program. blue and black are a great color combo and perfect for spring. a statement necklace is always a good idea when polishing off a nine-to-five look. today, you can clearly see this necklace that is from the O, Oprah Magazine┬álimited-edition collection for Talbots. and the unexpected detail? a pair of brightly colored pumps! of course, black would have been the safe bet. but why not let your accessories give your outfit the oomph it needs to amp it up? the devil is in the details so be on the lookout for fun shoes and handbags.
