Fall Why Are You Being So Gray?

OK, so I had something completely different on at the start of this day. I has on a black and white striped dress with a silver glitter belt. I was getting ready for class and felt like my outfit was too dull. So I started playing around with it. At first I added different accessories but that didn't seem like enough. Then I tucked the striped shirt dress into this grey skirt, but I felt to bulky on the bottom. So then I decided to wear the skirt and find a top for it. And with some tweaking I got this.

Oh, the beret, the wool skirt, the chunky socks, the oxford booties! Can you guys tell I'm so ready for this fall weather to come. The socks are actually chunky over the knee socks that I rolled down, so I could get the illusion of a heeled mid-boot. Any who, hope everyone had a great and interesting week!

Glammed Up Rodeo!

Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you guys. Today I did alot of house work. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. I wanted to share another outfit with you all. I wore this a while back but didn't post it. I wore it to work one Saturday. Don't really remember how this outfit came to be but, all I know is I wanted to wear shorts and this necklace. Lately I've been a fan of the statement necklaces. I think it's because I'm always wearing dainty earrings. Anyways what do you guys think?

Mary "Pops-In" On Sundays

Hello everyone. I thpought I would show you all what I wore Sunday. I went to church in the morning. Then I went to a baby shower. How fun, tons of screamming kids, and a family of all women! Anywho, I wore the shoes to church but changed to flat sandals in the same color for the baby shower. You gotta be comfortable when you're meeting up with a ton of kids! Well tell me what you guys think, too much for a baby shower or just right?

Plaids and a Cruxifixes

Hello again! Just bringing you guys another outfit of the day. I took this pic a while back. I was having a lazy day. I was off from work and wanted to be totally comfortable. And normaly comfort eaquals my plaid/flannel shirts. As girly as I am, one would never think that I have a love of flannel and plaid. I think I get it from my mom!

When I look at all of her old driver's liscence pictures, I see this little woman in flannel shirts. I remember her owning a ton in different colors when I was younger. My mom has never been a girly girl. Although she can get dressed up eith the best of them, she prefers to be simple and comfortable. Her oufit du jour now: Skinny jeans, graphic t-shirt, and a her trusty pair of Chucks. Plus she doesn't wear makeup. But when she does, she uses her favorite shade of lipstick as lipstick, eyeshadow, and bluish! During the summer months she subs the chucks for flip flops!
So when I wasw little she didn't seem like style inspiration then. But now as I look back, she was one of the great style icons in my life. She let me know that you didn't have to have a lot of bells and whistles to be beautiful, just a lot of confidence. Plus she's the best looking soon-to-be 49 year old woman I've ever met!

Shorts Are So Chic

Hey guys. Just bringing you another outfit post! These shorts are the exact same as the ones in the previous post just a different color (brown). I bought the dressy shorts with the intention of dressing them up for work. But after styling them I realize they were way too short for work. I still love the idea that these shorts are more dressed up than typical khaki or denim shorts. I also think that the leopard belt just adds so much pizazz (LOL)!

So what do ya think?

Gone For Too Long!

Hello. I must admit that I may be the worst blogger in the history of blogging right now. I wish i could attribute it to being too busy, but I can not. The truth is I've felt like I lost inspiration to keep up with this blog. With all the personal things I have going on, I thought why post a so so post. I feel like my connection to all things fashion was lost. I've never felt that way before. Right now my life seem to be at this stand-still, career wise.

For as long as I've had my work history I've alwaysed worked in retail. I've felt comfortable there and worked my way to management. I know that I want to be in fashion, doing visuals, merchandising, or styling, but I don't want it to be retail. So right now I'm trying to decide  if I want to continue the retail path or try something different such as administrative work, etc. Living in Louisiana, there is not much opportunity to grow. I'm hoping that I can save enough money  one day to move to a big city with better opportunities.

Hopefully I can find my way sooner rather than later, and when I decide I will be confident in my decision. I'm also going to try to make a better commitment to my blog. And along the way I'll rediscover my reason for starting this blog and my passion for all things fashion.
