Outfit: Metallic Accents

Greetings Fashion Friends,

We're halfway through the work week!!! I feel like the 'Little Engine That Could'.....I chugging right along and I'm going to press my way through with little complaint (I already complained so I couldn't say no complaints....smh). Work is crazy busy and I'm going to tell my partner that she can have her job! Covering double the patients is insane! I swear at the end of each day so far I've had double vision and intense pressure around my eyes. If I indulged in spirits.....I would head straight downtown to a bar or lounge every day! LOL! Help me baby Jesus!!!

Okay, now that I've gotten that little rant out the way, I'm going share my look last evening for my bf's open mic show. Stimulating discussion, thought provoking spoken word, and all around good people were a soothing balm to my frazzled nerves. To sum it up.....I needed that.


I was in the mood for an updated, classic look. You can't go wrong with a button-down and pair of flattering, skinny jeans. To modernize my look, I decided to complement with trendy metallic accessories. I untucked the back of my top for a less polished finish.





I love this bag.....and at only $3 bucks, my bank account was finally proud of me :-)





Lucky find with these green metallic babies! They were on clearance for $29.99 and I scored a $10 promotion code from the site as well.......#winning

The ankle zippers are a fab touch to these jeans. I'm a short lady and the ankle length is perfect for me.
