Jungaleer!!! March 19, 2012

Holding up the wall at Southeastern High School! GO JUNGALEERS!

Hey y’all, hey!! It’s Monday! YAY!!! Typically, I have very little idea of what I want to wear to work on a Monday, because typically I don’t want to go to work on Monday.  However, this weekend I was looking at some blogs and came across a recent post by GrownAndCurvyWoman here and I was inspired to wear my purple skinnies from ASOS Curve.

Coincidentally, I work at a high school where the school color is purple and the mascot is the Jungaleer (A reference to a lion or a jungle cat. *shrug* ).  So……..when I got to work this morning (cause I am not going to pretend like I planned this), I realized that I was representing with the animal print (Jungaleer) and the purple.  Hence, the title of this post, Jungaleer.

Anywhoo, I really liked how the animal print top looked with the purple.  I brought together two of the hottest trends (animal print and colored jeans).  I love all things animal print (got that from my Grandmother, Daisy) and to be honest, I don’t think animal prints ever really go out of style.  I also love the colored jean trend.  Colored jeans were very trendy when I was…………………..younger.  I know there is a rule that says, if you were around for the trend the first time, then you shouldn’t wear it the next time it is trendy (something like that) but I don’t care.  I really like the look and I already have a few pairs. What do you think about my look?  What is your favorite trend?

 

TTYL!

Beautiful day!!!

Oh, my, my, my!! It is a beautiful day and spring is in the air!  This is just a brief post on what I wore today.  I got up to birds chirping and sunshine streaming through my windows.  *sigh*  I had to go to work, but I didn’t feel so………………….blah about it.

I threw on my white jeggings and my green shirt.  I wasn’t really sure what shoes to wear, but I figured these brown boots would do the trick for the day.

What do you think of my outfit?  Was there beautiful weather in your neck of the woods?  Are you as excited about spring as I am?  Let me know and I will TTYL!

I like this picture!!!

Just getting off of work and there is still plenty of sunlight and day left! Yay! *throws confetti*

 

Peplums are back! Yay! March 2, 2012

Peplums!!! Yay!!!

Hi, y’all!! Got a quick OOTD post today.  I recently purchased a lilac peplum from ASOS Curve and I love it!!!  I think the peplum is really flattering for the fuller figure and when I remember as a teenager, the style was everywhere.  I got quite a few dresses in the style one summer and I thought I was Jackee from the show 227. It seemed like every outfit she wore had a peplum.  I really imagined wearing this top with dark rinse jeggings and some cute pumps, but I didn’t have the exact pumps I wanted so I wore my trusty wedge booties from Nine West.

OMG!  I think this top is so cute!  I hate that they were sold out of the animal print version, but if my wallet permits and they have the black one in my size, I will get that one too.

I got a chance to wear one of the items I picked up while on the thrift crawl with Fash Det in January.  This cuff is so cute to me.

My little cuff.

Do you like/wear the peplum style?  Tell me what you think about my look, folks.

 

LONG OVER DUE!!! January 12, 2012

Hey y’all, hey!!! Happy New Year!!!  I haven’t posted in a minute and that is why the title of this post is……….long overdue.  LOL!

I had a great holiday!  I really, really did and now I am convinced Christmas should fall on a Sunday every year.  I had a great holiday weekend of family gatherings and new traditions with my children.  Here are a few pics of one of the outfits I wore.

Arriving for a family holiday event.

I call this outfit, Italian Ice or Spumoni. It just reminds me of those food items. *shrug* Top-American Rag@Macy's, Jeans-American Rag@Macy's. Boots-Nine West@Macy's

After a nice 2 weeks off and a lovely holiday, it was back to the salt mines.  I went back to work looking good and well rested (at least in my opinion).  I wore a color, that I have avoided for years, green.  I am so in love with that color right, now.  I picked up a few pieces before the holiday and I just love them.

Green Day! LOL!

Top-Style&Co@Macy's, Pants-Premium Collection@Gap, Shoes-Rachel Roy@Macy's

The shoes are super cute to me, but honestly I could not wear them all day and walking to my car after work……………………..a challenge!

Super cute!

I just liked this photo. *Kanye shrug*

What do you think about my outfits?  Are you feeling the green?  Let me know.  TTYL!

 

Monday Moanin’ Casual December 12, 2011

I hate waking up tired!!!! Anemia and winter time just do not mix and today it was all I could do to get out of the bed and off to work, but I did it. *sigh*  I didn’t have the energy to put on my work day uniform; black or grey pants, business casual top (cardigan optional), and pumps or Geoxx loafers, cutesy jewelry.  Now that seems pretty easy, but I always feel like I gotta put extra curls in my hair and layer my perfume (weird, I know).  The hair and the perfume would have been too much work. *sigh again*

My outfit today, required me to throw it on.  I didn’t have to press pants or top.  I didn’t even have to unbutton the top, I just pulled it on over my head. *shrug* Pull on the boots and tie them up; I’m out the door.  For some reason though, I felt I needed to grab my camera and tripod.  I did and here are the results.

Draggin' casual Friday into Monday's Pink Top-Style&Co@Macy's, Jeggings-Eileen Fisher@Macy's, Booties-Nine West@Macy's

*big sigh* I just wanna be at home in the bed.

My boots. I hope this gives you a better idea of how they look.

The blouse…..I love!!! It comes in 3 other colors, that I plan to pick up.  It comes in two types of green and I RARELY wear green, but the style of the blouse and the colors are just calling me!

This blouse has a silky feel and is a slightly puffy shoulder. I love it!

I took the pictures inside of the high school where I work and well………………I am still trying to find the best spot to take pics, especially in the winter time.  I know these are not the best photos, but inside of my office is the absolute worse for photos.  The lighting is awful!  *side note* I had a couple of students, who just stood off to the side watching me.  They didn’t say a word as I set up the tripod and took some test pics.  When I packed up to go, they just wandered off.  LOL!! My precious little lambs.  They will question me later. *smiling and smh*

Well, let me prepare for tomorrow.  I am going to a meeting/lunch so I need to look………………………better/different, something.  TTYL!

 

It Takes So Little To Make Me Happy! July 30, 2011

This is just a quickie, but I had to blog about my day today.  I was not feeling well earlier and was just………………….very blah.  I was physically in pain and emotionally just out of it.  I had so many plans for the day; things I wanted to do and things I had to do, but I was just not feelin’ it.  Anywhoo, my phone gives me this little ping and I check it.  I have some new tweets and a DM.  So, I check the DM and……………………….OMG!  It is a message from Girl With Curves!  I won a contest on her blog and my prize was a dress from BeBop Clothing!

I instantly went from doldroms and discomfort to this!  

I was able to get out of the bed, put on some clothes, and make my way to rehearsal! It takes so little to make me happy (I have tried to get men I date to grasp this concept, but to no avail).  Gifts, money, compliments, free things, more compliments, more money, and loads of attention are an instant pick me up!

Of course I will post with the prize winning dress.  I can’t wait to get it.

*Deep Breath* Ok, so this wasn’t really an OOTD, but what do you think of my thrifted t-shirt?  Stripes are one of the top trends and when I bought this tee, I bought two other striped items.  Leave comments, please and I will ttyl! *skips off grinning*

 

 

Sportin’ my sky! July 24, 2011

Good day, people!!!! You ever buy an item, that you LOVE, and you envision exactly how you want to wear it but you are missing some pieces?  Ok, that is what happened with the sky (hat for the uninitiated) I wore today.  *full disclosure* I have a HUGE head! I can rarely find a hat that will fit my head.  So………I visit one of my fave stores, ForLove 21, with my daughter and see this hat.  I mention to her, how much I love that style and with no expectation that it will fit, try the hat on.  OMGoodness, the durn thing fit!!!!! My daughter is surprised.  I am……………………stunned and I look at the price tag. $10.50?!  Oh, ahn, ahn! I run to the register *dancing an imaginary jig in my head* and pay for my hat!

I bragged for days, to anyone that would listen, about my new hat.  I had this vision of myself in the hat,with an off the shoulder, peasant style, dress on and cute, black sandals; jingling, gypsy bangles and my Versace sunglasses.  Oh, Oprah! I was going to turn……………………………whatever place, out!

*sigh* Alas, I never did find an inexpensive version of the dress and the hat languished on the top of my dresser for months.  I can’t be the only person that does this; buy an item with visions of the perfect outfit and you let the item just collect dust while waiting on the “perfect” pieces to match it with.   Ok, maybe I am the only weirdo (nee dum-dum) that does that.

Well anywhoo, a couple of days ago I pulled that hat out and wore it with an old, black maxi skirt.  I just couldn’t take it anymore.  I didn’t take pics of that outfit because……………….well I just wasn’t feelin’ it.  Today, however, I wore my hat again!

Hat-ForLove21, Dress-INC @ Macy's, My old standby wedge sandals-Nine West (last year), Handbag-Coach

I just wanted to wear it!   I just love the way I feel when I wear it.  Sexy, diva-ish, classy, mysterious, just fabulous.

I wore this to church today and well…………….*in my JJ from GoodTimes voice* you know, what can I say! Here’s a pic with my face showing, but typically you can’t see my face in this hat (I LOVE THAT!!!).

There's my face. No makeup today, folks! Too hot!

What do you guys think?  How cute is this dress (I got it on sale at Macy’s about a week ago)?  Leave comments folks and I will ttyl!
