Bell Of The Ball...

Today's post will be quick.  I have to get to work early this morning for a conference call.

It is going to be a wonderful day today so I decided to celebrate with a "girly" ensemble.

No, I did not go with a sheer blouse or with ruffles or even pleats.

Today I am wearing a pinstriped skirt with a lovely lace detailed finish at the hem.  I added a pretty pink blouse to give the outfit some color.  Last night I had planned to wear my boots but this morning I decided to go with some simple black heels so that there was nothing to draw attention from the hemline.

At the moment I am simply in love with it.

I have not been able to stop smiling since I finished getting dressed this morning.

I just LOVE being so happy with an outfit,  It just starts my day off on the right foot.  It puts a smile on my face.  I just feel like I have an extra bounce in my step.  Isn't funny how clothes can do that to you?  I guess that is why we all like them so much, huh?

So here is what I have pulled together for today...

As I said, the shoes are simple.  They are not even real suede but they are comfortable.  Although not as sharp as my Stuart Wietzman heels (see here), I think that they are attractive.  What do you think?

The blouse is so soft and the shiny.  I really feel like a girl when I wear it.  What do you think?

Wanted to show you how the blouse and skirt come together.

The "star of the show" in my mind is this hemline.

What do you think?

So there you have it.  I am sitting here at the computer with a smile on my face.  I bet I will be glowing all day!

Oh, by the way, I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I received on the new skirt I showed you in the previous post and I have not even worn it to work yet.  I am saving that for next week when everyone returns from vacation.  At least three or four ladies made wonderful comments to me about it while I was out shopping.  That will put a smile on your face, too.

 Do you ever pull together an outfit that makes you smile?

Hope You Have A Happy Day!
