Happy Thursday!!!

Maroon-Pencil-Skirt

My Purpose :: Day started very early with my PWF board meeting, then it is off to Hera Hub to work for a bit and attend an event on Product Development (excited may have product for you at some point in the future), then a lunch date with my hubby, then I will spend the rest off the day in his office, then a fun night of socializing with our LeTip group and then off to Home Fellowship, so a very busy and long day!

My Inspiration :: I saw this sweater hanging on my rack to be put away after laundry and I thought to myself what pencil skirt could I wear with this today… I looked at a couple of colors and decided this was going to be the color palette today. It’s ok to stick with neutrals sometimes, but I encourage you to play with color as well and Choose everyday to “Dress With Purpose”!
