Lady!! July 23, 2012

I felt like a lady today.  I mean, I felt so sophisticated and lady like in my outfit today.

Don’t you love the sun spot in the pic, right on my boobs? Like they are being spotlit! LOL! I still really like this pic though, so I used it anyway.

I just got this outfit from ASOS Curve and it was perfect for the long day, I had today.  I wore it to morning church service and then I wore it to an afternoon church event with the community choir I manage, Antonio D. George and The Excellent Voices of Praise.

I am loving the return of the peplum this season, and when ASOS had a sale, I snagged another one (I have it in Lilac, too).

Peplum Top-ASOS Curve, Midi Pencil Skirt-ASOS Curve, Necklace (old)-Ashley Stewart, Beetle Ring-Rachel Roy@Macys, Pumps (old)-BCBG, Sunglasses-Coach@Sunglass Hut

I tried not to get too crazy with the accessories, but I had to wear my beetle ring from Rachel Roy.  It is an eye catching ring (at least in my opinion).

Ignore my nails. I haven’t had a chance to get to the shop, but what do you think about the ring?

The necklace is something I have had for a while and have barely worn, but I have seen so many women in statement necklaces this summer, I have been looking for an opportunity to pull out some of the ones I have.

I really was feeling this necklace with my outfit today.

I can’t wait to wear this outfit again, together and seperately.  This midi pencil skirt is about to be worn to ribbons and the peplum top will be so cute with cropped, black skinnies.

Well……….it is time for this LADY to shut it down.  Exhausted from a long of praising and worshipping.  I will talk to y’all later.

Color Me Bad! April 16, 2012

Hey y’all, hey!  Just a quick OOTD post.  I am really feeling all of the color this season and I have added SO much color to my wardrobe in recent months (really the past year).  Today,  I did some color blocking.  A trend that I love, but would have been afraid to try a few years ago.

I got two fabulous pencil skirts at Target a few weeks ago, on clearance.  I just hung them on the back of my bedroom door, thinking about how I wanted to wear them.  Sometimes, my procastination/laziness/haste to get to work prompts an outfit that just seems to work out (at least in my opinion) and today was one of those days.  I grabbed the skirt off of my door and the top out of my closet.  I was gonna wear leopard print pumps, but I spotted my blue shoes that I hadn’t worn in a long time and threw them on.

This outfit was comfortable and I felt very grown up and sexy;  I got a lot of compliments on it today.

Not the best lighting, but it was so windy outside I dare not try to take pictures outside.

The pictures above don’t do justice to my blue shoes (and I don’t know why they are so blurry), but you can see the shoes below and here.

My blue suede shoes!

What do you all think?  Are you into color this season as much as I am?  I am planning to really go BRIGHT as the weather gets warmer.

Well, time for me to do some homework and I think I may wear my blue shoes tomorrow.  I’ll ponder it some more and talk to y’all later.  XOXOXOXO

 

NAPOLEON COMPLEX!!!! May 8, 2011

First, let me say HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the mothers out there.  God bless you and I hope you enjoyed your day.

Now, on to my outfit post.  I feel like I came up SHORT in this outfit of the day!  I love the jacket I am wearing.  I got it last year from Roaman’s and I wore it a few times over the summer, but hadn’t worn it since.  I decided to pull it out today and wear with a black pencil skirt and tank.  I was high-steppin’ from my house to church and back again.  People complimented my outfit; told me how nice I looked; I took pictures before church and after. 

*BIG SIGH*

Then I took a look at the pictures and my lower lip poked out.

What is so awful about the outfit? I don’t like the way the skirt is looking!  I have lost a few pounds in recent weeks and many of my standard, go-to pieces, just don’t look the same *pouting*.  Because the skirt is so big in the hip and leg area, the wrinkles from where I had been sitting are more visible.  This may seem petty or trivial, but it really bothered me.  I feel like the outfit doesn’t have a crisp look.    The black pencil skirt is a staple of my wardrobe.  I need it for work of course and I sing on the Praise and Worship team at my church so I need it for…………………40 Sundays a year.
 
Let me stop complaining.  I had a great Mother’s Day overall.  My Mom was in town for my sister’s graduation from college and my son took me to dinner.  I don’t know, God’s Favorite Shoes (link to the right), put it best in her blog post today….You win some, You lose some.

SIMPLY………. January 23, 2011

Today was my first day back at my church, since my return from Miami.  I wore something black, comfortable and I think……simply chic.  *side note* The latest edition of People StyleWatch says, pearls, pearls, and more pearls are so last season, but I beg to differ!

Here are my OOTD pics for Sunday, January 23, 2011.  You will notice some of the photos are cropped. My hair was on the ziggity boom, so……………you know how it is. LOL!  TTYL!

Chesty LaRue! LOL! LOL! LOL!

I LOVE BAUBLES!!!
