Series

I continued my mini series Dress for Success. The four new issues were Dress for Success – Valentine’s Day, Dress for success – movies, Dress for Success – Job Interview, and Dress for Success – Interview for a creative job. You can find previous posts in the archive. The next post of this series goes up tomorrow.

The Monday series Focus Alaska shed light on Alaska’s sole lottery, the Nenana Ice Classics, on how Chinese immigrants celebrate the Chinese New Year in Alaska, how Alaskans support each other, and ice fog.

Linkups parties were well attended with lots of great looks

I am also very thankful to Liz from Shopping my Closet and Zarouhi from Mama and More for inviting me to co-host their weekly linkup parties. Thank you ladies. I felt especially graceful for all of you who linked up to show your OOTD and made these parties so special. Thank you all.

OOTD

Now to the new OOTD. I wanted to create a monochromatic warm work outfit that already shows some spring mood. I paired a cardigan and sweater in two different shades of winter-white that also have a different texture. The different texture adds interest and keeps the outfit from looking “Old Lady” or old-fashioned. This way the cardigan-sweater combination has the vibe of wearing a twinset, but less stiff. The snake print has various shades from winter white over light gray to light beige and hence stays in the color scheme. For a pop of color I accessorized with a peridot bead necklace. The semi-precious stones look like the first leaves of spring. The pearls again pick up the color scheme. How do you “cheat” your spring outfit when there are still eight weeks of winter left?

P.S. Like an outfit or more? Then you would help me a lot if you pinned them to your own Pinterest board. It’s a great way that your friends, family, and others can see them too.
