Time Well Spent

This week for some reason I have just not been able to follow my usual morning routine of waking up early and getting my workout done (or making the bed, for that matter).  Sleeping in and snuggling with the furry beasts (kittens) has been a more appealing choice.  Time well spent? Maybe.  I can always do double work outs next week (yuk).

Make a Statement

Today Marionberry Style is putting the spotlight on one of our favorite accessories: statement necklaces. Whether you're adding flair to jeans and a tee to or adding personality to an LBD, a great necklace can instantly transform any outfit.

Fall Finds

With the air cooling at night and the constant flipping of all my favorite magazine's September issues has me itching for fall attire. Here are a few finds that have been currently added to my wardrobe. Out with the old, in with the new!

After being out of the office for a week and living in causal attire, getting back to the daily grind can be a difficult one.  A little frilled dress will sure make the transition back to work a little more pleasant. Looking forward to catching up with all of you. 

Happy Monday!

Love at First Sleeve

Can these leopard cap sleeves on this sweater be any sweeter?  Nope, I think not.

Happy Friday!

Newly Acquired Gems

A few gems that I have picked up during the last few weeks. Looks like I have been craving some new sparkle.

Big Win

Where yesterday's pants were such a big miss (for me anyway, just could not find the perfect top), today's pleated skirt that I purchased a few weeks back has been a big win.  This little number will be on a heavy rotation this fall (just imagine this with some boots, yum).  The pleated skirt has been a really hot ticket item and I am happy I was able to find one that seems to work for me.

Swing and a Miss

I really thought these printed linen pants would be on heavy rotation this season, but for some reason they just have not worked for me the way that I had hoped.  Not everything can the perfect choice all the time.  Maybe if I can find the perfect sweater for fall there is still hope for these babies.

Pleated Perfectly

I finally found a short pleated skirt that will work for the rest of the summer and well into fall (I have a long version of this that just is not doing it for me any longer (see here)).  Decided to make a quick pass through Banana Republic since they always have great basics, glad I did, score!

Sometimes my closet just doesn't speak to me in the morning, but this oldie but goodie Anthropologie dress screamed at me today from the back of the closet. Maybe it's because it is bright red and had been ignored for a bit, just a thought.

The vest is a perfect outfit-enhancing piece that I have invested in over that last year or so (my collection is slowly growing). They are great to throw on over a tee paired with jeans or shorts for a fun layered casual look or you can completly change this up by pairing a sequined vest over a dress (for which I have yet to do, but have the perfect vest in mind). Tell me, have you embraced the layering vest?
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Friday Fancies- Tee Time

I never have been much of a tee shirt girl, but there is just something about the Current Elliott freshman tee that I love. I have one in grey that I dress up and down (see here, here and here) and when I saw this little leopard number it was almost a no brainer. Here are a few other little tee's that have caught my eye and currently craving.

Happy Friday!

Mix a Lot

Mixing patterns can be so much fun when it works, but when it doesn't the hubby looks at me and says... what the heck were you thinking? Did you mean to do that? I love that we can think outside the box and not every article of clothing has to matchy match.
