Nude thoughts.


This is making me want summer here now. I'm also trying to grow my hair out a bit and I hope it's long enough to pull off this side swept messy braid my summer...doubtful, but a girl can wish, can't she?

Aren't you some wonderful inspiration.

Orange! My favorite accent color and a great lil citrus treat.

On another note.


If you haven't noticed I added a fan page to the right and would love each of you to become a fan of Style Me Laura!

I appreciate it!

Lucky stars.


I'm thanking my lucky stars today and relaxing the rest of the week. *Great things to come*

Little sis...could she be more cute?!?

And look at that fur & aviators, watch out this girl has style!


Hello Friday.

Goodie goodie gum drops, it's Friday! I was hoping for a call today (of what I can't say), but it's 2:00 PM and it hasn't come yet. I hate sitting by the phone waiting, don't you? I'm trying to keep myself busy....but it's so hard! I'm also trying to stay positive and only let positive thoughts in my you believe in positive thinking?

Anyhoo, I also created a fan page for my business, Style Me Laura. I would be so flattered if you could become a fan!

A few favorites.

A few of my favorite pics from Weardrobe Top 100!
I loved flipping through this little black book of style mavens. They are such a fantastic resource for inspiration.

I've been feeling yellow.

I've been seeing yellow everywhere and I'm just crazy for it! I've always loved the color yellow. It's a happy cheerful color and it makes me smile. Whether cooking, decorating or wearing it, yellow is all around and its got me in a yellow state of mind...*Smile*

Still in love.

I still adore oxfords. I had a little obsession with them this past fall and let me tell you I'm still loving every square inch of this trend. There is something really sexy about wearing a men's inspired shoe...

Could you resist these oxfords? I am crazy over the intricate metallic gold lattice. I can see wearing these in the early stages of spring with tights and then gradually wearing them without tights as the weather gets warm. Oh so cute!

A touch of color.


What better way to ring in the New Year than a little pop of canary yellow, peaking out from a sea of gray and black? I think my cravings for spring are beginning to show through my chattering teeth and mink earmuffs, which I wear daily to ward off the freezing weather!

Hello 2010!

Happy New Year.

I have never been one for setting New Year Resolutions, however I do like to set goals. I know, you're thinking aren't they the same thing? For some odd reason, when I set goals I tend to keep and follow-through on them. Resolutions I'll set and then they are history a few weeks later.
For 2010, I have long a list of goals ahead of me. Especially leaving 2009 in the dust and welcoming a new year & decade.

Here are a few I'd like to share:

1. Blog at least 3 times a week (I was so good at this last year) .
2. Invest in a better camera.
3. Learn about one of my passions: photography.
4. Bake a new recipe at least once a month.
5. Make an effort to keep in touch with my friends & network.
6. Smile every day.
7. Read a book a month.
8. Bid & land another freelance gig.
9. Save money.
10. Do pilates at least three times a week.
11. Walk daily.
12. Drink water everyday (bye, bye diet coke).
13. Volunteer at least once a month.
14. Read the news daily.
15. Focus on being positive everyday of the week.

I think that's enough for now.

I leave you with this lovely image....(maybe this will be me in the next few months?)!
