Put it in neutral!

Hey y’all, hey!!!  Well……………………*sigh*it is back to work.  I just came off of a week long winter break and overall I enjoyed and got a little rest, but I sure could have used just one extra day.

One thing I did do over the break is catch up on reading blogs.  The past few months, I have been so busy with other life stuff, that I have neglected to really, read, study, meditate on, or marinate in the posts of other bloggers.  This week off gave me the chance to catch up with the posts of blogs I had not glanced at in months and also get hip to other blogs.

One blog that I subscribe to is, the Plus Side of Me with blogger Rebecca.  In yesterdays post, Rebecca did a Five Take (5 bloggers take on a particulare theme).  The Five Take theme for the post, found here, was neutrals and while Rebecca did not wear an entire outfit in neutral colors, I was inspired by her post to wear a neutral color to work today (Thank you, Rebecca!).

In the past year or so, I have acquired so many items in grey.  It was a safe segue from wearing all black, as I tried to incorportate more color into my wardrobe, but because I had added so much more color to my wardrobe (and of course still fell back on my love of black, in a pinch), I had not been wearing much grey lately.  Anyway, with the Plus Side of Me post on my mind, I decided to wear all grey to work today.  I pulled out some tried and true pieces and put myself in neutral.  It was a beautiful morning and I thought I was prepared to take pics but……………*BLURG!*..I forgot the attachment that hooks my camera to the tripod! *BLURG! again*  I had to drag one of my kiddieboos out of school during his break and have him take pictures of me.  Ironically, David G. was in neutral colors, too.  Thank you David for braving the wind and taking my pictures for me!  Tell me what you guys think of the all neutral (well I know the purse is not neutral, but work with me).

Grey’s/Gray’s Anatomy March 29, 2011

  I am doing a twofer today.  I have pics of an outfit I wore on this past Sunday and the outfit I wore today.  I have just been lovin’ grey/gray (am I the only person who gets confused about which spelling of grey/gray to use? *shrug*)!  I have picked up so many grey/gray pieces lately, it’s ridiculous.  I am kinda leaning towards grey/gray and taupe/blush/nudes, as my colors for spring/summer (I’ve  got alot of backslashes in this post. What’s up with that? LOL!).

Anywhoo.  I recently purchased a super-cute, leather jacket from Roaman’s and I love it!  I wore it Sunday, just because.  Today, I wore more grey/gray.  I am on a shopping punishment for the month of March, but I could not pass up these Levi skinny jeans.  They are fab and I LOVE them.  They are fast, becoming my go-to jeans for the season. 

I love grey/gray!

I have many, many plans for them (picture royal blue suede pumps and a coral top. *sista girl look* I’m just sayin’.). 

 So here are my pics from Sunday and today.  Tell me what you think.  Are you feelin’ grey/gray, like I am?  Let me know.  TTYL!

OOTD-Churchin! November 1, 2010

This is just a brief post.  I went to church today (self-righteous smirk-JK!).  I love to look nice on Sunday morning.  Now I don’t hit the mark every Sunday, but I give it a good faith effort.  I sing on the Praise and Worship team, so I am out front every Sunday morning, and that takes planning and preparation ( I’m not just talking about the singing).  I need to be dressed for comfort and movement.  I can’t just stand there like a statue, so I am moving around and dancing; sometimes working up a sweat.  So………you dress in layers and wear shoes that are comfortable.

Most of the time we have to wear all black, with simple jewelry.  This is so we don’t distract the audience while we are singing.  If you notice, alot of background singers wear all black, the focus is supposed to be on the star.  It helps that black is my favorite color.  However, sometimes we (I) deviate from the norm.  Today, I stepped out in grey instead of black.   I wore a really cute sweater I picked up from Target for about $4, a satiny pencil skirt I pilfered from daughters closet, my Jessica Simpson black pumps ( I stood in those shoes for almost an hour; my feet eventually just went numb) and some accesories from ForLove 21. Tell me what you think.
