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

JIVE TURKEY! November 26, 2011

Thanksgiving 11/24/11

Happy Holidays, everyone!! I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and wore a fave outfit to the family dinner.

I like to call this outfit, my Foxy Clown outfit (My brother always calls me Foxy Clown.  *sarcastically*I love him so.)  It has the 70″s vibe and I am a 70’s child.  When I wear this outfit (which has been quite often recently) I get alot of compliments and alot of “Cleopatra Jones” or “Freeze Sucka!” comments.

I’ve had the jeans for about 2 years and had only worn them once or twice until I got my new fave jacket and my new wool floppy hat.  The jeans are from one of my favorite online/catalog shopping sites, Alloy.   They carry a ton of cute jeans, in all color and style ranges and……………they offer extended sizes and lengths.  Most of the jeans I wear are from Alloy.

Ok folks, tell me what you think.  Would Pam Grier be proud?  LOL!

Happy Holidays and TTYL!

 

Whatcha doin’ Wednesday night? July 14, 2011

Hello, all!  Well, as promised I am doing another OOTD post with my fave white jeans.  I wore them to bible study yesterday, which is my typical Wednesday night activity. Now I don’t always look like this for bible study, but…………………..many times I do, because a) most of the time I am coming to church after being at work and b) sometimes I just wanna wear my stuff.  One of the reasons I blog, is to show the world that just because you are a born-again Christian,  doesn’t mean you are boring, plain, and/or dull; not all of us are stuck on wearing, “I’m too Blessed, to be Stressed” T-shirts and “Mom” jeans.

Anyways.  I paired the jeans with a new top, that I love.

The detailing around the collar and the sheerness of the top, just spoke to me.

This isn't the best picture, but the collar has white beads and studs. Cute!

It said, “Buy me! Buy me with your credit card and 20%off coupon!”.  So, I did and here we are.

I plan to do a few more posts with the white jeans ( I so wish, I had picked up another pair when I had the chance).  I want to do a super casual look and another look inspired by a Dots blog post, but tell me what you think about this look.  Do ya’ like my top? Leave a comment and let me know.  TTYL!

 

 

 

Resurrection! April 24, 2011

Getting ready to walk into my church. Feelin' like I look and lookin' like I feel!

Happy Resurrection/Easter Sunday, y’all!!!! OMG! I had an awesome day, that began with an awesome church service and ended with an awesome dinner with loved ones.  The day was beautiful; just perfect weather and it made me feel RESURRECTED! Gone are the long, dreary days of winter. Coats are banished to the dry cleaners or the back of the closet.  Bare legs and opened toed shoes are visible everywhere. YAY!!!!

I felt really good and I felt like I looked really good (someone said I looked like a modern day “Mary Poppins”,  but I just looked at him like he was crazy!) I had been planning this outfit (not necessarily for the holiday) for weeks and I think it came off well.  Tell me what you think. 

*Note that I am continuing to add more color to my life. Hi-five me!*

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Me love color long time! April 15, 2011

Hey y’all! It has been so long since I did a post!  I am excited about spring/summer and have just been enjoying the warmer temps.  Anywhoo, I have mentioned in previous posts, that I want to add more color to my wardrobe.  I tend to stick to black and black is my favcrite color, but I was really intrigued by the pops of color I was seeing all over the place.  I decided to pick up colorful pieces, where I could, and try out a different look.

Coral Top-Dots, Grey Jeggings-Levi's@Macy's, Blue Suede Pumps-Steve Madden@Macy's

Now the outfit above, is one I wore to work on yesterday.   

The shoes got a little dusty when I walked thru the staff parking lot, but they are still super cute and I got a lot of compliments on them.

I got the shoes about a month ago, while shopping with a friend at Macy’s.  I saw them on another young lady in the shoe dept. and begged her to buy those shoes for herself, because they were gorgeous on her.  I thought about it and said to myself, “Step out of the box and see if they have the shoes in your size!”  You see the result.  The coral top, similar story. Standing in line at Dots, the woman in front of me had the top in her hand and I asked her if it was plus size (she was kind of in-between. She could go XL or 1X *shrug*).  She said, “Yes” and pointed me to the back of the store where they were hanging.  I grabbed my cute wedges I was picking up (the one and only 11 in the store) and hustled to the back to find my size.  The rest is history.

So……….this is my attempt at A) adding color to my life and B) doing a color block thing.  I have to say, I am really loving wearing color,  doing some new things with my wardrobe, and stepping outside of my black box.  Tell me what you think, people.
