Simple Reminders

Thank you everyone.  Thank you Jan, Val, Sue, Annette, Heather, Lynaea, Debbie, Beverly, Monica.  Thank you to those of you who come to look but don't comment.  Thanks for sticking with it and coming back to check and see if I have posted anything new yet.  Thank you for commenting on my posts when it suits you.  Thank you for the encouraging words and kind thoughts.  Always, thank you.

Now that I've said what I feel about that, on to my sartorial post.

Work Shoes

Play Shoes

I made an effort today to dress in a blog worthy outfit.  Because Nicole commented yesterday that my outfits were attainable (she said beautiful as well, but I won't go there myself).  It was a simple reminder for me as to why I started taking outfit photos in the first place.  My looks ARE attainable, and they aren't sooooo put together and glamorous that they are unwieldy for real life.  Sometimes they aren't glamorous at all in fact, just real.  What you really can wear everyday in your normal life.  So thank you Nicole, for saying just the right thing at just the right time.  I heard you.

That big post is coming.  I still need to say the things in my head.  I have 27 photos being edited so you don't have to look at 27 photos!  LOL  The funny part is that in the editing process, I'm seeing things differently than I thought I would.  I pulled the pictures to prove a point, but I think my original point may have been a lot of mental bullshit.  Just sayin'.  You'll see what I mean.

A Return (of sorts)


It's been a while since I've sat down to write.  There is so much to say, so much to confess, so much to explain that one post won't cut it.  So instead, I bring you...

Yet another copycat post.  Listen.  It's only a small part of my current issue so we will start here.

This is Lyddie from I Am Chic on the Cheap.  She has a great sense of style and I found this little gem on our favorite site The Pinterest.  (when you add a "the" it makes it more regal sounding, no?)  The truth however, is that this was not my inspiration photo.  I can not for the life of me find the original image I saved, although it too was from The Pinterest.  I found Lyddie's gorgeous version by searching "lace top with pink".  Turns out that a large amount of people have already done this kind of look.  So as per usual, I am more than a day late and quite a few dollars short.  Again, this is exactly my main blogging problem!

The image that I failed to save showed darker pink pants, more like mine, and she had a pink bubble necklace on which reminded me of my Target necklace.  I was like "duh" why have I never thought of that?  So I gave it a go.

{A note here, I hate my arms so I actually wore my light denim jacket over this even though it was hot as heck.  I don't know why I didn't snap photos with it on, knowing that I hate my arms but there you have it. (that was not a plea for kind words, so don't feel like you need to gush)}

Some day I will find the original image, and give that person the props she deserves, but for now, enjoy Lyddie and all of her great looks!

And now I must give you a warning.  Perhaps not the very next post, but soon this blog is going to have to get deep.  I have a few things on my mind and am working my way up to sharing.  Nothing earth shattering,  just deep and gutsy.  HA, that's appropriate. LOL

Until next time,


The real inspiration photo

Loving Leopard

Sometimes, when you haven't taken outfit photos, instead of admitting defeat you do a retrospective.  I realize that my blog is a little young to do a retrospective of my body of work (lol) but I found one huge linking theme when I was scrolling through old snaps.  I wear my leopard print scarf A LOT!

Let's face it, I rarely have to get this dressy.

I'm sure there are more, and I know I've worn it many times in undocumented ways.  The truth is, this accessory makes almost every outfit better.  Best $12 I ever spent.

Is It Wednesday Already?

Too soon to see this shirt again?  I have worn it about 5 times already but for some reason never get to take photos in it.  I loved this outfit though, and I look quite sassy in picture number two.  

I am not feeling very sassy these days, nor inspired to take outfit photos.  Not sure what is going on, probably nothing that can't be blamed on hormones or laziness.  Or both.  Probably both.  I'll try to be better next week.
