Outfit: Striped Button Down and Faux Wrap Skirt

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I wore the look below last Sunday to church. I was a little disheveled but it was either be late to church....or miss 15 or 20 minutes trying to "look polished". I stay chasing after God so being late was not an option.




This red leather bag was the perfect pop of color. And let's not ignore my new ankle-strap heels! Nothing fancy.....but the platform makes these babies uber comfy!
 
 
 


It annoys me greatly that I took the time to iron the heck outta this skirt and it still wrinkled within 2 minutes flat! *le sigh*

Outfit: Graphic Print Jumpsuit

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!! I'm off for the next 10 days and I'm sooooooo excited! Vacation time....whoop, whoop! But first, we are celebrating my niece's sweet 16 tomorrow and I'm headed home to help with the final planning and be available for set up.  I cannot wait! This youngster is so hilarious and I thank God we can celebrate this teenage milestone!



Soooo.......last weekend I went to meet with family regarding our vacation next week and this is what I wore, LOL. Hey, don't judge me! I have to get in my clothes whenever the opportunity arises. If not, what's the point of me shopping so darn much????
 
 
 



I like the wide-legged look. A touch of red was added via my heels....although they're pretty much hidden. The jumpsuit is a little clingy so I felt self-conscience in my tummy area but oh well....these photos don't really reflect my fears so I guess it's okay.

Oufit: Sundress, Sun Hat, and Suntan


Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I'm off to a frenzied start this week with work and prepping for my vacation next week. Can you believe it's halfway through the month of July and I have only been to the beach once this summer??? I told the bf he has to do better. He knows I like to beach bum. I'm a nerd so I faithfully carry my Nook with me but I occasionally get up from my beach chair to take photos, get close to the water, and people watch, lol. I will be making up lost time beginning Monday ;-)



This sun is a beast.....I think atmospheric scientists are withholding back some serious revelations.....like the fact that there clearly is no longer an ozone layer. It's just HOT!
 
 

I went to lunch with my colleague and she laughed at my sun hat, lol. She thought I was doing the most because she had no intention of staying outdoors for longer than walking from her car to the restaurant. I told her I was going to be in the sun all next week so I needed to protect my skin for any casual outings.....but then I changed my story to the truth. I told her I wanted to look like I was headed to tea and she could just bite me, LOL.
 
 
 


Not sure when I dented the hat but it did protect me pretty well....

Outfit: Strapless Mini, Oversized Clutch, and Red Bottoms

Greetings Fashionistas,

It's Friiiidaaaayyyyy!!!! Oh wait, I'm on call this weekend at the hospital, but whatever I'm still going to 'slightly turn up', LOL. But first, let me share this #teamoverdressed look I wore on the 4th of July.



Blue is my favorite color  and this shade above is my preference. I snagged up this little dress for only $12 bucks!!! It has subtle cutouts on the side and I needed that extra air vent because it was soooooo hot!!!
 
 

 
 

I'm about ready to toss my camera out the door! I need to upgrade ASAP because I'm struggling hard to correct the pixelated look. And clearly my Photoshop skills are horrid. But let me point out how freakin awesome these heels are. The classic style will serve me well for years. Love my nude heels!!!
 
 

I look like I'm about to tilt over in the above pic, lol. Anyhoo, when I got to my family's party, I switched to thong sandals, added a boat hat and nerd glasses, and removed the necklace. Should of took some pics of the dressed down look but I honestly wasn't thinking....

Outfit: Faux Denim and Pleats

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I had a fabulous 4th of July weekend and I'm now back to work. I actually didn't have one piece of barbeque the entire weekend.....blasphemy! However, I did eat good, lol. This week is what I have affectionately titled "Diet Recovery Week".....real subtle right? I will be on vacation in less than 2 weeks and I while I know I won't lose the 10 lbs I've been hoping to shed......I do intend to be way less jiggly for sure ;-) #TeamTightenUp



 I ran errands briefly Saturday morning so I could properly spoil my little cousin on her birthday. I chose a simple, girly look.....pleats, dainty heels, and all!
 
 
 


I thought this top was denim but it's actually silk with a 'denim-inspired' color.....still love it!
 
 

Another comfy find.......these heels have a little platform which undoubtedly contributes to the extended 'wearability'.
