Happy Hump Day!!! I hope the week so far is going well for all of you. My week so far has been really great. Here’s something funny I have to share. On Monday while walking down the hallway of my job (I work @ Family Court) this 15 year old boy waiting to see his probation officer was like “How you doin boo?” I was like “I’m old enough to be your grandmother!” Where we gonna go on our first date? McDonald’s? I had to chuckle.
I titled my post “use what you got” because I’m always saying I don’t have enough clothes. I have a short-term memory in regards to the contents of my wardrobe. Everyday I’m like “what am I gonna wear?!” Meanwhile my dresser drawers and closet are overflowing with clothes. I had to finally admit that I was a lazy dresser. It’s easy to say you don’t have enough and then go out buy more things. So enough lazy dressing! I fished through my clothes and found this dress that I wore one time!!! That’s ridiculous! I bought it last June from Forever 21+ for my trip to Las Vegas. I wore it once… in Vegas! After that I tucked it into my drawer, never to be seen again until now. I love the colors, pockets and draping of this dress. The draping compliments my shape wonderfully.
The sweater is from Macy’s INC line. I moved away from the traditional black cardigan sweater to this great scallop shaped one. The belt came with the dress and it ties the outfit together wonderfully. I fished through my accessories (which I desperately need to organize) and found this Target necklace. I like the metal that is wrapped around the beads. It gives the necklace a little edge.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!!!
