Point me in the right direction

Funktional velvet blazer via Nasty Gal. Urban Outfitters men’s Stapleford Buffalo Work shirt. Jeffrey Campbell Carry boots. Topshop bag. Vintage watches

Oh dear Monday, how I loathe thee.  When I was younger and asked the random question about which super power I’d like to have, it was always the same — to fly.  If asked today, I’d want to have the power to freeze time.  Is it me or does it feel as if time is just whizzing by?  In the famous words of Jessie Spano from “Saved by the Bell”:

“There’s no time! There’s never any time!”

OK, end of daily rant.  I’m still feeling blazers/tops/sweaters with structured shoulders.  Since I’m petite, anything that gives me a proportional boost, including in the shoulders, is a plus.  Scored huge with this Funktional velvet blazer from Nasty Gal and can’t wait to next pair it with a bodycon dress/skirt.

The Jeffrey Campbell Carry boots are still available via Solestruck.com. Click HERE to see how I first wore these OTK boots with a casual dress.

If you’re on Chictopia, friend me!  I’m trying to post more often on there.  Thanks to everyone who’s entered my giveaway! The winner will be selected tonight with a post to follow shortly!

    Shoulders done right! I’m really loving this jacket; it’s a creative take on the usual bold shoulders, in my opinion.
    And yes, time is whizzing by at an alarming rate; its ridiculous how little I feel I get done these days.
    However, I am excited about thus Sunday! What time should we do it at? Hope it doesn’t rain…
