Outfit: Eggplant and Leopard

Greetings Fashion Friends,

Happy Hump Day! So I just realized last evening that I'm stressed. Yep, I admit that I have too much on my plate (again) and I'm unable to save the leftovers for later. Almost everything is a priority and requires some form of action to be taken now. I don't freak out over an abundance of responsibility, but I realize my body does provide me with friendly reminders to encourage me to slow down. I was in bible study and the word was awesome (currently we're studying Romans) but I kept getting distracted by this nagging headache over my eye (classic stress region) and pressure around my sinus area. At first, I attributed the symptoms to eye ache and possible prescription changes for my glasses....but I know now that there's more to the story, so to speak. Anyhew, I've decided I will press forward and organize my priority list in a way that doesn't make me feel like I'm playing catch up, and continue on until I can check some items off....then I'll be able to truly take a breather and reduce my stress level. Pray with me people!

For my OOTD, I wore eggplant and leopard to attend a poetry performance by my classmate's brother. Ummm....I sort of didn't make it, LOL. I did drive the 5 minutes up the road it took to get to the event center, however, there were sooo many people and I spotted a wedding party that totally threw me off. Parking was nonexistent AND I was super sleepy so ya girl drove the 5 minutes it took me to get back to my house. I know, pretty sad, but I promised my classmate I will do better next time. I do realize my personal life is also nonexistent right now. Again, pray with me people! LOL!

Haaa! I look absolutely stoned right here....from sleep of course! I should have known I wasn't going to make it before I even left the house!!! LMBO!

I pulled out my new favorite clutch to complement my ensemble. It's becoming a lot more versatile than I originally envisioned it to be.

LOVE the back of this top!!! I have 3 of these and I just discovered the zipper actually zips all the way down. I need to know stuff like this because the most unreal things happen to me. I can just imagine myself getting hooked on something unknowingly and my zipper getting yanked down. Yep, I'm super imaginative.....because mess like this happens to me frequently! SMH

Loving these necklaces I lifted from my grandmother. She was like.."I still wear these young lady". And I was like "No you don't". She laughed and said  you're right, you can have them. What grandma? Such false indignation, LOL!

I didn't even put on any earrings, mascara, or lip gloss.....you know darn well that's a no no for me!!! Unbelievable! So glad I took my butt home.....lame move or not!

Necklaces - Gifted (Grandmother)

This outfit is rocking, the zipper on the back is amazing. I have a thing for zippers, I always did, but I have no idea why.

I can relate to everything you said at the beginning of this post. Stress is a major problem for me but I must admit that lately I have slowed down and it has gotten better. Im starting to get a headache just thinking about all the tension headaches I use to get. It's definitely not good for your health and I will be praying for you.

And you look hot as usual!

Hi Lady! Cute outfit! What a good decision to turn back around and go home, you need rest. Without rest you will not be able to give anymore. I wrote something about releasing today, it helps.
Girl, love love love that shirt and that clutch. And those shoes are to die for. A++

Fashion Pad said…
Thx ladies!!! I need all the prayer I can get. I stay seeking God's face. U believe that's the only thing keeping me sane!!!

You gotta do what your body tells you to do. At least you looked haute even when you were exhausted! Take it from a girl who was down for the count for a full week...rest when your body says rest. Your grandma is too cute, btw. LOL!

With Class & Sass,

Love the outfit, I am going to need the booties and the clutch ASAP!!! :-)

And yes our bodies will let us know when we are pushing it too hard, can be say MAJOR SHUT DOWN!!! So don't over do it. Sometimes the things we think are on the ASAP list really don't need to be. Multi-Tasking is only good when you are actually getting all the things completed!!
