 This month's We the Fashionati Style Profile is "A Lesson in Layers" and If you guys are like me you have been acquiring pieces that you can't wait to wear for Spring….so wear those pieces now just layer and layer…..and layer!!!

I'm going to be real for a second (yes this is a long post) for the past couple of months I haven't been able to put as much into the blog and responding to you guys as much as I would like because toddler hood and potty training are kicking my ass…also I've gotten into a rut….but when Who What Wear's 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge came across my screen this weekend it seemed like just the right kick to get me into high gear. I'll be posting 3 looks today and then starting Wednesday I'll play catch up with the first 4 looks from the challenge and then following up every day….. because as John D. Rockefeller so aptly pointed out "Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great"

PS if you are in the Triangle area be sure to head to The Loft at Southpoint from 6:00 to 9:00 to meet me and see how to style Spring's key pieces… there will be macarons and a special discount….need I say more?
