I hope everyone had a great weekend!  After I ran the 5K on Saturday morning, I attended the Brighton Centennial celebration and got to play with my 2 sweet little nephews.  We even went on a carriage ride through town.  After that I went to my good friend Janessa's wedding.  She looked gorgeous, and I am so happy for her and her husband!  The weekend just flew by, and I'm already counting down until the next one.  It is going to be a busy couple of months with work and school, but I'm looking forward to it.  If you didn't see my announcement on Instagram over the weekend, my exciting news last week was that I got a promotion at work.  I was promoted from credit analyst to assistant credit manager.  I will move into my new position in a couple of weeks after I get back from Dallas.  I have a lot of learning in store for me, but I'm really excited about the challenge.  = )  Thanks for all the congratulations on Instagram; I appreicated it so much!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup with The Fashion Canvas and myself! Today's trend is monochromatic! Show us how you wear it - burgundy, hot pink, all black. It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it. Here are our top 2 hat looks from last week.

  2. Did you wear that to a wedding? Genius idea! Love how it almost looks like a dress but is even more versatile cause of the separate pieces. Also love the geese in the background & those heels!!

    Thanks again for featuring me :) & congrats again on the promotion!!

    Sincerely Miss Ash

  4. This is a fabulous outfit! I love both the skirt and the top and love the great shade of rich green. If you're interested, I think this would make a great addition to my weekly Fashionably Employed Link Up. My office is a bit conservative so I would likely have to change up the shoes, but I know I would love to wear this blouse and skirt to my office! :) Thanks for sharing and hosting!

  5. Loved that you opted for green to make the monochromatic! It looks so chic and elegant!


  6. One of my favorite looks of yours. So pretty! I have waiting for those heels to come back in my size - are they comfy?


    1. Thanks! It took a month but I finally got my shoemint heels. They are tall, but comfortable considering the heel height. And they fit true to size. ; )

  7. Congrats on the promotion! You are looking gorgeous in that emerald green!
