Think Pink and Flashback Friday

I've come to the conclusion that I am obsessed with blazers. They end up in just about every outfit post that I do these days. I'm actually wondering how I will be able to be separated from them in the summer. Whatever will I do? Until then, I've decided that I need a yellow and a blue one to get me by until the heat rolls in. 

This week I've entertained myself by going back through some of my old posts. As painful as it can be to see some of the bad posts I've done (come on, we've all done one or two that we haven't loved!) it is fun to see how I have changed, hopefully for the better.

Here is the post from one year ago today. Brace yourselves.

Posing was not natural so the obvious thing for me to do was to hold up the pole with my hand and stare at the ground. I'm not perfect now by any means but I sure hope that I have improved from this! 

Also, a big thank you to Kati at Glitz and Gold for the feature. I stumbled upon her blog not too long ago and was instantly impressed with the professional layout and pictures. Check out this post she did on mixing prints.

  3. I love your pink blazer and how you styled it with the striped shirt!

    xoxo, Nina

  4. I'm obsessed with blazers too. Hard not to be. I've yet to acquire a pink blazer. Perhaps next shopping trip?

    Beautiful outfit.

  9. love the whole look. I am also obsessed with blazers at the moment- I need a coral and a white one ASAP!

  10. I'm obsessed with blazers, too–I want a yellow one! I think that outfit post is GOOD were a pro from the beginning!

  11. What a drag about Google Reader! Besides Bloglovin' do you know of any good alternatives? (so, for example, we can actually see who is following)

    I love the pink blazer! I was in Forever 21 the other day to get a navy one, and I almost walked away with two! :)

  12. Hilarious how awkward posing can be... I got good with my sister being my photographer but whenever it's someone else I always feel so goofy! Love the look & especially the necklace!

  13. Blazers are essential for a stylish woman, we should all have several colors in the closet (or at least that's what I keep telling myself!) Have a good weekend!

  22. I love that you can look back and just learn from the past and keep moving forward. I have posts I don't just love too!

  29. Aren't blazers just the best?? I wrote about them in my latest blog post so I am totally in the same boat with you! I just love em and I don't know what I'll do when it gets too hot to wear them! You look super chic in yours, and I love that striped shirt!

  30. Very cute outfit!! I loooove blazers as well, they just make everything look more polished and pulled together.

  31. I really like the pink, teal, and stripes! As for old posts, I've looked at a few from even this fall and thought, "What was I thinking?" I'm not as brave as you, I selected them. :)

  32. I love thinking pink! It is one of my favorite colors and I love styling it.Your blazer, belt and necklace are gorgeous.


  33. I love the pattern mixing and a good pink blazer. Posing is tough, I'm still uncomfortable with it! haha

  35. Hi Amy! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm so happy you did because now I've found your blog...and we both used Aubrey to design our sites! Instant bond!! LOL Love blazers so much...think it's become an addiction:) I totally can relate with needed one in every color! I feel so silly as I'm just starting out with posing for pictures, so I'm glad I'm not the only one who this is not coming as second nature to! Bummed about Google Reader!!! I didn't even know this was happening, so thanks for sharing the news. I'm gonna have to use Bloglovin more now! Love your blog!

  36. I love your pink blazer!! I am obsessed with blazers in general too. But I have yet to find just the right pink blazer. Most of mine are neutrals, so I would love some colored ones!
    As for the posing, I have only been doing outfit posts for a few months and I am still like the most awkward thing EVER. I hate getting my picture taken LOL!

  37. Hehe we've all come a long way since the start of blogging! It's fun to go back and look though!

  38. I love the leopard belt!!! Blazers, jackets, sweaters...I miss the in the summer. Good thing for breezy AC indoors though.

  39. You really can't help but love a good blazer and this pink is no exception!
    Thank you for visiting my blog. ;-)

  49. Beautiful ensemble. So springy and classic. You wear blazers so well -- I always feel way too boxy and butch when I try to wear them, so I sort of gave up. I think I just haven't found the right one yet. :) Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm following you now (on Bloglovin' AND GFC... I know it's ending soon but I can't seem to give it up quite yet) and would love it if you'd consider following me back!
