Moody Style: Birthday Weekend

I just want to start off by apologizing for my absence over the past week.  I’ve been traveling for work like a mad woman lately and I don’t know if I’m coming or going these days.  I’m pretty sure I’m back on track, so bare with me.  I feel like I keep saying this over and over.  Hopefully, I’ll get it together.  Well, I just had another birthday on Monday and I had a great birthday celebration.  My birthday kicked off with a quick weekend trip to Miami, FL with my sister, C.  We went to a Miami Heat basketball game, hanging out in South Beach, shopping and of course eating some amazing food.  Speaking of food, have any of you been to Seasons 52 before?  I went there for the first time this weekend and I loved it.  One thing that I loved about this restaurant is that everything on the menu is less than 475 calories.  I know…I was surprised too.  I have to say everything that I tried was delicious.  If you have a Seasons 52 in your neighborhood and you haven’t tried it yet, then add this restaurant to your to –do list.  I’ll let you know how my actual birthday turned out in another post.  Do you have any birthday traditions that you always do every year? Let me know in the comments.

Are you thinking about what to get you’re loved one for Valentine’s Day?

Anyways, I came up with a quick list of some great gifts for men and women, if you’re still shopping around for the perfect present.  For this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, here are my top 10 ways to show your loved one that you care on the most romantic day of the year.

Moody Style: Sparkles and Stripes

I love the look of pattern mixing especially on some of my favorite bloggers like Lisa, Lily, and Tara.  I’ve been able to dabble in mixing pattern here and there, but not nearly as much as I would like.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a chance to experiment at work because I usually wear lots of suits.   So, I usually let loose with my outfits on my days off from work and on the weekends, like I did here with today’s OOTD.  I’ve seen this polka-dot sequin top just about everywhere and I had to grab it when it went on sale (I know, I’m still shopping, but that’s a whole other topic for another day). Have any of you tried to pair polka dots with stripes? Let me know in the comments.
