I am a big heaping mess. I say that with all the love, affection and regard that I have for myself. I’m the type to spill food on my lap while eating with gutso. I trip and stumble all of the time. I get strange and unidentifiable stains on my clothes. I scuff my heels. The list goes on. But today ladies and maybe a gentleman. Today, I look like a lady.
Well look what we have here. I’m wearing burgundy/maroon/oxblood again. Whenever I notice myself drawn to a particular color, I toy with the idea of making a week of it. My attention span is way too short for that sort of commitment, so you’ll just have to settle for these shots.
Oh the joy of trying to be cute during wintertime in the Northeast. It is a very real challenge my friends. I am some one that will pick warmth over style 8/10. I am also a fan of layering. Not the cute just right kind either. Oh no, my layering consists of bulkiness and comfy boots with thick socks. I am working on it though and it helps that I am no longer a pedestrian.
For some reason I just can’t get away from plaid. I love plaid. I blame it on my many years as a Catholic school girl. I wore a plaid burgundy skirt that I always rolled up (don’t ask me why, we all did it even though it was an all girls school). While burning a hole through my pocket in my town’s pitiful excuse of a mall I stumbled upon this shawl. I actually spied it while going down the escalator 5 minutes before Sears closed. As soon as I put it on, I felt fancy! This baby was coming home with me.
I currently volunteer as a conversation partner. Fancy title huh? I basically converse and do activities with ESL students in the hopes of helping them acclimate to American culture and learn the language. I have two partners, one from Taiwan the other from South Korea. Both are very nice young ladies who I look forward to learning more about. We went to brunch at Masa on Sunday. I’ve been to Masa numerous times for tapas, but I’d never been there for brunch. They have a prixe fixe menu and that’s what we ordered from. Our starters included cornbread and another kind of bread with an assortment of spreads, jellies and jams. One even had jalapenos, quite tasty. Continue reading
I don’t wear red often, but it is one of my colors. I think red (actually I think most deep colors are flattering) looks great with my coloring. I’ve also noticed that red, white and gray look great together. In fact I liked it so much I wore it in almost the exact same way. Check it out here. Why reinvent the wheel right? Continue reading
Hello, hello, hello,
My apologies for the random half body shots. My camera was dying I had a super crazy morning. My car wouldn’t start, I attempted to fix the situation myself but it must have been 8 degrees outside and I was too cute & cold to walk or wait for a bus. So I eventually used my noggin and called AAA. The pics are a result of me trying to take pics as soon as I got home.
While attempting to count sheep as a means to help myself fall asleep, I came up with my OOTD. Why not do a faux suit?!! Eureka!! I’ve been on the hunt for red slacks forever and a day, but I do have red pants and a red blazer. It was seriously a match made in
heaven my mind.
