What I Wore: Red and Black

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! My Saturday was spent shopping which ALWAYS makes me happy, I am on a credit card freeze for the month- but I am participating in a contest for Marshalls called Project Fab. I am a semi-finalist who was sent a gift card and asked to find some fabulous deals. Well, let me tell you I found some fabulous deals!

If you follow Ruby Slipper Diaries on Facebook and Instagram I shared a few photos during my shopping adventure… Check it out if you haven’t already.

Over the next week I’ll be sharing my purchases, but today is an Oldie but Goodie I bought at Marshalls a few years ago:

If you saw the first of my Fall Trends post here red and black plaid is a trend to try next season, but honestly black and red is a classic color scheme that will never go out of style. So if plaid has you left feeling too lumber jack or school girl you can still stay trendy by pairing these colors together!

Happy Monday!

What I Wore: Peplum and Pink

Weekends come and go so quickly. Just another Manic Monday (I’ll have that song stuck in my head the rest of the day.)

I’m starting to get a little depressed with all the “summer is almost over” discussion. The magazines are talking about the fall trends, I’m just not ready for all that yet. Feeling the pressure of having to wear all my summer clothes Right Now, before it’s too late!!

I’m being a bit dramatic this morning, but seriously I don’t want summer to end- (Insert Temper Tantrum)

I love the black and white pattern of the top against the bright pop of pink, and I’m a huge fan of the bow buckle detail on the belt. Obsession of the moment: Bows!

Hope you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

What I Wore: Bright and White

I don’t know about you but I love white. White pants, dresses, shirts..etc You get the picture.

The problem I have is I can’t make it through a day without spilling something on myself. The day my blue pen decides to explode is the day I am wearing White- coincidence?

The planets were all aligned yesterday, No spills! My white pants are still white, it was a good day!

Wore to Work: Polka Dots

I was having a Polka Dot kind of day, I own enough Polka dots to have a different outfit each day but I thought that would be a bit much. I wonder if anyone in my office would even notice?

Hmm, perhaps an experiment is in my future.

Purpose: To identify who really pays attention to the details of someone’s attire.

I’ll have to draft my thesis on this matter some other time… What are your thoughts?

What to Wear to the Office

Navy blue is a huge color for fall, it doesn’t have to be blah! Pair it with cool pastels now- after all it’s still July (Let’s not rush the summer) In the cooler months a dark teal and burgundy are the perfect accents.

What I Wore: Navy Sheath

I love a good deal! I found this Cynthia Steffe dress at Marshall’s a little while back for only $30.00, retails for $145.00. Yeah Baby! Can you feel my excitement?

Marshall’s is an excellent place for dresses for all occasions. I typically buy a style I can wear to work and this sheath is not only work appropriate but could be worn to a wedding or other special occasion.

It’s a neutral color so accessorizing is easy. I love bright pops of color so today I paired it with Kelly Green for a nice contrast. Maybe next week I’ll pair it with a vibrant Pink or keep it monochromatic with Cobalt Blue (my favorite color if you haven’t guessed.)

Neutral doesn’t have to equal boring, punch it up with a pop of color to make it interesting!

What I Wore: Floral & Pink

While searching for a matching shoe in the bottom of my messy closet I stumbled upon a floral blouse I completely forgot I had. Fell off the hanger onto the floor under a heap of shoes.

I had an awakening… I should probably clean out my closet and perhaps I will find other clothes I forgot I had, a whole new wardrobe possibly. I know what you’re thinking, it shouldn’t have taken me finding a shirt on the floor to come to the realization that I need to clean. (Trust me every time I opened the closet door I thought about it, but then I quickly shut the door- out of sight out of mind)

I follow several fashionable ladies on Instagram who are participating in a closet remix challenge. For an entire month, you hand over your credit cards- No shopping allowed! Everything you wear is strictly from what you already own. Sounds simple enough, but let me remind you I have problem, a shopping addiction. I instantly started to get the shakes when they explained you hand over your credit cards. What?! Who does that??

It’s actually a great idea and I plan on doing it for the month of August, who’s with me? Fellow shop-a-holics, this could be our rehab.

Here is that floral blouse I spoke of, I paired it with my pink lace pencil skirt from Target and nude wedges:
