Style Icon - Katie Couric - Black & White...

Katie Couric is one of my favorite television personalities and an icon of style in my mind.

Simply put, she has incredible style.

Classic.  Demure.  Ladylike.  Sophisticated.

I want almost everything in her closet.

I definitely want that fabulous leather skirt!  Amazing!

Yes, I am just a little jealous.

Hee Hee

While she hosted the Today Show on NBC for all those years, I watch almost every morning.  Now that she has her own show each afternoon, I record it.  Confession... I don't get to watch everyday though.  Sorry Katie.

I will post a few more times regarding Katie's incredible style but today we will focus on her classic use of black and white.

One of the great things about such a classic combination... a lady can wear it anywhere.

I would wear all of these outfits.  Each would take me so comfortably from work to drinks with girls or simply out for Saturday errands.

Disclaimer:  I took all of these photos directly from  Credit where credit is due.

Moving on...

Each outfit is just alike but they are never the same.  Flawless.

Below are just a few examples of Katie's sensational taste.

I adore each of these ensembles.  Each outfit is perfect.

So chic and ready for the city with this fabulous leather top.


Just a simple white blouse and black pencil skirt but it looks great!

Just two more classic looks from my icon o style.
LOVE that wrap skirt!

That black blouse is simply yummy and I need a great white pencil skirt.  Every girl does.

Polka dots!  What girlie girl doesn't love her polka dots?

So classy.  So classy.

Chic & sophisticated.

The Leather Skirt Returns...

Lady's... Today I make my return to regular blogging.  I would say, "Triumphant Return" but we all know that I may not be able to keep up.  A return cannot be "triumphant" if it is consistent and lasting.  Just my opinion.

Mercy, I have so missed the whole program.  I have missed sharing my closet and my thoughts on "dressing well" with all of you.  I have missed the inspiration that I received each time I read your blogs.  I missed the joy of "adding" a new follower to my blog and discovering a new "blogger friend" to follow myself, too.

Blogging was fun.

I am hoping that my blog is back in regular business but things are likely to change in my little corner of the Internet.  For one thing, there will almost certainly be fewer OOTD posts from me.  I think that I am leaning towards a format that shares more about other people and less about me.  Who knows?  This is very much a work in progress.


My last post was on December 17, 2012.  Goodness... That was a long time ago.  Most of you certainly forgot that my little blog was even one that you "follow."  Many of you have didn't even notice when I "unplugged." Hopefully some of you wondered where I went?

When I "unplugged" back in November, it was unexpected and "total" so I didn't just quit posting on my blog, I quit reading your blogs, too.  I have missed them.

I spent several hours over the past few days catching up... at least mostly.  I confess, I didn't read them all and I commented on virtually none.

I see that congratulations are in order for many of you.  My heartfelt congratulations to all of you that welcomed a new baby in recent months or are currently "growing" a new one.   I see that we I have a few "friends" that married this year, too.  Wonderful!  I wish all of you nothing but the very best... The very best.  I am sorry that I missed all of the "announcements" when they were first sent out.

So where have I been?

Without a bunch of details that are both boring and very inconsequential, let's just say that I have had a number of other priorities for the past several months.  I think that things have settled back into a routine again.  I really do hope so as I plan to post at least 3-4 times a week going forward.  Only time will tell?  I will say this at a minimum, I have a new found respect for you guys that find the time to post regularly.  Hee Hee

So... to new beginnings...
