50 wardrobe classics.


Ladies, this list via Matchbook Mag and "A Glamorous Little Side Project" is where it's at!  
It's so perfect it makes me giddy.  And even though I own many of the pieces on this list, it makes me want to buy things.  Many, many, things! ;)

casual--not frumpy!

We've all been there--victims of the Casual-Frumpy epidemic.  But, no more!  There are so many ways to be comfortable and look stylish at the same time.
  
Add a button-up under a sweater,
mix in some fun jewelry,
opt for colored jeans,
wear a bold print,
or pair a simple sweatshirt with chic boots!

Taking even a few preventative measures will surely save you from this terrifying epidemic. ;)

tweed it to me!

Every once in a while I get obsessed with something.  A few months ago it was bubble necklaces.  Let's spare my feelings and pretend that my borderline crazy obsession with them is normal... ;)

This month?  TWEED.  If it's tweed, I must have it.  Did you know that last week I bought three (THREE!) tweed jackets in one day?
Well, as in turns out, I like tweed on my top AND my bottom.  Jackets, skirts, GIMME!!

life in pictures: our ski trip!

Our much-anticipated ski trip was this weekend and we enjoyed every last (BITTER cold) second. I took my iPhone on the slopes with me so I could snap some pix and Instagram them! (@hellogorginsta) 
We also got to catch up with some friends over delicious dinner and drinks.  We ate too much, drank just enough, aaaaaaand I was asleep by 11:00 pm.  I actually fell asleep amidst a conversation back at our lodge.  As in, I was carrying on, apparently fell asleep, and woke up to find our friends gone for the night.  Oops!  
Hey--skiing takes it out of you! (And clearly I'm an old lady when it comes to my bed time.)

work looks!

Hi Loves!  How has your week been?  Mine definitely flew by.  And now, I'm getting ready to go on a ski trip.  I still have to go pack my bag and pick out my outfits (let's get serious, I LOVE this part! haha).  But, I wanted to post the work outfits that I've been wearing lately.  
The first outfit was what I wore on Valentine's Day--whimsical and fun, yet still work-appropriate!

...let's get personal for a minute.

Dear Followers of Hello Gorgeous, recent visitors, and passerbys,

I just finished reading several e-mails and was so touched that I felt compelled to write to you.  Thank you for reading this blog, thank you for commenting, for spreading the word, for giving me feedback, and most importantly for sharing your personal stories with me and telling me how this blog has affected you.  It's amazing and so encouraging to see how a blog could connect so many people and have a positive effect.
I also want you to know that although I may not answer your more complicated e-mails the day that you send them, I always (ALWAYS!) read every e-mail.  

I couldn't have asked for a more amazing and more gorgeous (inside and out!) audience that would be reached by this blog.
Seriously, ROCK ON!! 
    
Love,
Yasi

1 dress, 4 ways!

F21 pleated dress
We all love shopping for new pieces for our wardrobe.  It's exciting!  But, sometimes what's even more fun is re-discovering your own closet and re-styling the clothes that you already own.  It's like finding buried treasure.  ARRRGH MATEY!
  
One of the easiest ways to re-style your clothes is to layer different pieces over and under, like my green pleated dress above.  
Put a jacket or cardi over it.  Put a button-up under it.  Throw on a scarf.  Belt it.
Play with it and see what you come up with!
