My good friend, Brandy, recently purchased a pair of eggplant skinny jeans and now needs ideas on how to style them! Well, Brandy, this post is for you!!
Next is a fun office to happy hour look! A basic tee gets dressed up with a smart navy blazer and heels - just as easy as the first look yet polished and chic!
Finally, don't be afraid to rock some color! Pink goes amazing with eggplant, as we can all see here. Add some tall boots and a sparkly cardigan and you're pretty much ready for anything!

|Total Eclipse of the Heart has been my anthem|
There is nothing more frustrating than being stuck in limbo like this. I've made a lot of progress in moving on, though I of course still have lots of lonely going on. I haven't lived by myself in more than seven years, and I've definitely found myself with many more hours to kill. But I digress... I've been moving on, feeling less sad, getting out with friends, making new ones and hobbying it up like a mofo.
But I'm still unable to fully carry on with my life yet. I'm trapped in this place where it feels like I'm expected to cry into my pillow every night, not explore what's next for me. Am I trying to move on too quickly? Perhaps. But when you feel caged like this, I suppose the natural instinct is to try and break out.
So I have three more months before I'm officially allowed to just be and feel like a normal girl again. I don't even know how to possibly make it that long, but I guess all I can do is keep moving forward.

Layering is something I'm still not very good at. But it's important that I keep working at my own personal style, that's why all my outfit posts are called style challenges! So I sucked it up and tried new clothing combinations one morning (making myself quite late to work :O ) and ended up here:

Wearing dresses and skirts over pants is happening, people, no matter how hard you fight it! I was actually sold on it awhile back when Man Repeller first blogged about the trend, and then double sold when Emma Watson recently rocked the look! I've decided to test the waters, so of course had to first create an inspiration board to help me style myself appropriately!
- Don't wear leggings, but do wear tailored, skinny pants.
- Wear a short, flared skirt or dress.
- Use solids to create a cool, color blocked look!

Uh oh, I've been slacking with outfit posts! Cold weather tends to kill my desire to look cute - I better start stepping it up again! Here's what I wore yesterday, very hipster with my bowler hat, no?

|Another happy place for me!|
I feel so un-feminist to say that. But, especially as all your close friends have paired off, it's hard knowing there isn't one person in the world who's number one priority in life is to care about you. For some many years, when I started to get stressed or anxious I would think of Mr. Ex, know no matter what he would help make things better, and calm myself down. I suppose he was my happy place.
Now when I start to get fussy my brain automatically goes to Mr. Ex, which only makes me fussier, ahahah. So I try to go to a new happy place. And it's hard to really find one!
If you're going through a similar situation, I can only recommend you delve into your passions and works towards new goals. Besides blogging, I spend almost all my free time now in aerial dance classes! Not only am I in pretty good shape, but I can focus on doing something I love when I'm in a crappy mood!!
What's your happy place?

|Call me... maybe?|
I blame the He's Just Not That Into You episode of "Sex and the City." Prior to that women were comfortable in assuming the guy was, well, into you. But once that mania hit, I know that I suddenly began to second guess every signal. After all, if you invite a guy over in the evening and he passes, doesn't that mean he's just not that into you? On the other hand, if he shows up are you just a booty call to him?
How much is too much time together? I figure a guy who likes you will always want to see you, but a guy friend of mine says that sounds like the beginning of a terribly codependant relationship doomed to fail. Do people hold themselves back to keep a relationship healthy... to be frank, that's never occurred to me! I've always been the type to go "When can I see you next?" if I like a person. And don't get me started on The Rules! Do guys play hard to get??
Remember when things were easy and if a boy ran up and hit you and ran away he was yours? Or you got a scribbled note asking if you would be his girlfriend? When did relationships get so complicated... why when everyone has accumulated so much baggage that the idea of being straightforward and vulnerable makes you puke, of course!
