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.
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.
Another typical workday in my neck of the woods. Here is what I decided to adorn myself with. Continue reading
I am all bundled up today. It’s supposed to be really cold. I was expecting high winds and at the least, flurries. Yeah I didn’t see a single snow flake either.
As I was trying to plan my outfit, these two colors came to mind. I knew I had the items in my closet. It was jus a matter of executing it.
Hope you’re doing well and enjoying or at least trying to enjoy this fall weather. So far so good on my end. I haven’t really been cold, which is good because I stink at layering. I end up looking like a busted can of cookie dough. I have been running even later than usual so I don’t have any unfocused Photobooth pictures for you all. However I do snap the occasional pic in the bathroom at work. You’re welcome 🙂
I am in love with my cowrie shell necklace from Burkina Faso. Like in love I tell you.
My top is a burnt orange, not red. A friend of mine thought that I was repping Haiti colors, but that is not so. I do feel as if I’m repping hard for someone’s school. I don’t know whose colors are orange and blue, but Go Team! These pictures don’t do the outfit justice. I was really cute on Tuesday I swear. I have some exciting news to share, but I wanna hold off until it’s confirmed.
Any interesting things going on in your world?
Blouse & Belt: Old Navy; Skirt: H&M
Happy Thursday. Can I just say that I was really feeling myself in this outfit? These items are not things that I would normally put together but after searching my Inspiration Folder (pics of outfits I like) I realized that I could pull it off. Continue reading
Happy Monday! I was at my wit’s end last night. I couldn’t settle on what to wear for work. I literally pulled a bunch of tops and bottoms from my closet. If people really knew how much time and energy went into my daily outfits they’d be surprised.
The Rebecca Black song popped in my head as I was writing this post. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it in it’s entirety though. Although I work in a very very casual workplace, I like to dress up and look like I’m going to work during the week. At least I hope it looks like I’m going to work. Fridays and sick days are the only days that I allow myself to be casual.
My casual usually consists of a top (I rarely wear t shirts) and jeans. Continue reading
