This last post is just for my friends in the WordPress community. I’ve enjoyed discovering your blogs through Reader and the ease of being able to “like” each other’s posts.

I have decided to move my blog elsewhere, but I’ll still be checking in on you! I hope you’ll continue to check me out over on at my new domain allmouthandtrousersblog.com.

Big kisses and looking forward to reading all your new posts!

xo, Amy



It’s Spring Break! The mister and I will be heading off to Nashville, so there will be a bit of a break in our regular programming (“What regular programming? You never blog consistently!” -You).

In the meantime, here are a few extra pics from the Nordstrom event that were hiding on Jill’s camera.



More info on our outfits here and here.

IMG_1550During our marathon shopping sesh after, Jill found this purse at Charming Charlie that matched my nails. I acheived this look with a base layer of Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine in Spark (which looks purple in the bottle but dries navy) and about eight layers of Milani Nail Lacquer in Gems. Yes, it took forever to remove!


This was from the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day. I knew I wanted to wear some green, but not in the typical way. And I also wanted to keep the weird color combo theme going.

I pulled this old scarf out of retirement for the green, and paired it with this oatmeal/oxblood sweater. Green and burgundy isn’t anything Earth shattering, but the colorful bangles add some unexpected brights.

The day I (well, we) bought these lavender jeans, I spotted a gorgeous lavender and coral necklace at J Crew and knew I wanted to pair the pants with this coral blouse. The blouse is quite over-sized, so I tamed it with this tailored jacket.

The earrings match the pants, but the random introduction of mint makes them less matchy-matchy.

This “week” has been pretty stretched out, due to blog neglect. I’m sure you will find a way to forgive me!

Here’s another wild color combo. I’ve been hanging on to this yellow top for a while, and the necklace is one of my purchases from the nine hour Michigan Ave binge. The shoes look pretty bright in the direct sunlight, but they are dark burgundy velvet.

Week two of Theme Weeks! The theme originated as “Anything BUT Black or White” playing against the big Black and White trend for Spring. But I think my version evolved  into Kooky Color Combos.

Here, we have that highlighter pink sweater with which I started by pairing with these wine pants. I played with a few necklace options and dug up this oldie-but-goodie. I liked how it didn’t exactly match, but very much played off the dark pants. The necklace lead to the orange pumps (one of very few pointed toes that were saved from 6 years ago!), which lead to the pink and orange tank. It’s kind of insane, but works at the same time.
