Greetings Fashion Friends,
You know, I'm definitely grateful for my career, but there are times when I'm like....whew, my brain needs some down time!This week is hectic and my boss told me today it's probably not going to slow down with new process changes for awhile. Okay, it's job security for sure, but it's a little challenging at times when you have to constantly utilize a "think tank" mentality to maximize care, minimize error, and focus on safety. But in the end, I'm doing what I love so I'll just shut up about it.
Let me share something more lighthearted with you all. My best friend thought I dressed like a hip hop dancer when I went out to run some errands the other day. She said "You look like you just left a dance class....I just know you danced your behind off", LOL. I swear I can't stand her :-) I wasn't going to take pics of my outfit because it was so casual, but I thought, why not, it's a blog about all things fashion! I'm sure you realize that mastering the art of personal style is just as important whether you're glammed up, or dressed down.
BTW, this is my go to casual style for quick errands. If I'm going to hang out or hit the mall, I'm usually in skyscraper heels ;-)
Obviously you can see that the weather is having "one of dem days". Lol But seriously, I'm kind of disappointed with this winter because I really wanted to rock my cold weather gear. Here in Florida we only get about 1 month of "chilly" days all year long!
To create a look that reflects my personal style, I have to have at least 3 common elements whether I'm dressed up or down:
1. A fab pair of statement earrings (I can have on a jogging suit and I will rock large hoops)
2. A chic handbag, preferably one that can carry my life in it (even my clutches are oversized)
3. A fab pair of shoes...even the boots above received compliments and inquiries regarding where I purchased them from. The shoes MAKE the outfit. Point.blank.period.
You all know that I will quickly pull out the shorts....thick thighs and all. Comment all you want but er umm.....these legs bring the boys to the yard, LMBO! Just kidding ;-)
My bags always appear as if I've overloaded them.....do you see why I prefer structured bags? Folks are always asking me if I have back pain carrying around my handbags! Why they're so nosy in the first place I have no idea, smh.
Yes, my tee does have Minnie Mouse repping Switzerland on it, LOL. Don't ask....cause I have no answer.
