Outfit: Look Out Stallions!

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!! You know what, I love you guys so much!!! Thanks for the fabulous advice and expressions of concern regarding my stress filled life. Please know that I am taking this situation seriously. I am reorganizing my life and allowing for more rest without dropping the ball on my responsibilities. For those of you who may not know, I'm a clinical pharmacist and I work as a specialist at a cancer center. I also work in the retail field every now and then. On top of my demanding responsibilities at work, I am starting a business, managing a blog,  hosting a family reunion, organizing our annual family vacation, chairing one of the events at my church's women's conference, and on the board of the church's health ministry (getting ready to develop a domestic violence program), and I'm working on a much delayed research project with one of our neuro-oncologists at work. Hmmm.....I'm gonna just stop right there before you guys realize that something is totally wrong with me, LOL!

But I do get it people. I may not always feel like I'm overwhelmed because generally I just don't think about the things I have to do. I just do them. But I can't ignore the physical signs right? So I'm gonna start taking care of Shanequa. The first thing on my "me" agenda is to schedule my spa appointment. My bff gifted me this for Christmas. LOVES her to pieces!!!! I'll let you guys know what I decided to do (i.e. massage, facial, body wrap, etc.). I''m so ready to relax. I even take adventurous vacations....so sad, SMH.

But enough of my wacky life. Let's move on to some fashion. While I adore creative and flamboyant styling just like the next fashion follower, I really love simple looks. However, I believe in taking a simple top and jeans to the next level by layering on a statement accessory. I use every accessory I can find that works for me to elevate my look. Of course jewelry pieces are my go to items, but shoes, handbags, and scarves run neck and neck. For the look below, I pulled out my heelless wedges. My mother said my shoes reminded her of a stallion......my brother said I looked like a centaur (half horse, half man). I couldn't help but LMBO!!! My family has jokes for days....trust!

I know my feet look a little dry....but I swear its the lighting or something, LOL!

The back of these shoes DO resemble a stallion!!!

Alright now, look at you!!! I am loving the shoes, you already know that!!! :-)

It's good to know that you are going to take some me time, because you need that!! I had a panic attack this morning (hadn't had one in years) and I went to the restroom and broke down. I didn't realize I was so overwhelmed......so this weekend I am going to sit down reevaluate things in my life and put first things first. I really didn't know I was carrying so much weight on me until this morning!! I can't say what really triggered it, but it all came to a head morning!! I feel better after crying though :-) LOL!!

Take it easy girl! When you start thinking how much there is to do, it surely is a lot more stressful.. So like you wrote, just do it without thinking too much, that ways its much easier!! Have a great weekend!!

Ticka said…
Ok... I'm glad that you are seriously going to take the time to slow it down.

Now on to the shoes! I have never seen any wear this style of shoe, but I always see them in stores. I would probably break my neck in them. How comfortable are they to walk/stand in?

I feel you. Life can be stressful but at least you are happy with what you are doing. I personally don't mind stress if I love why I am stressed. It's better to be busy than bored. You look great tho. Cute shoes and top. Love the red and the fun wedge.
