Happy Monday all!

During happy hour last Friday with my BFF I told her I often I feel like I have nothing to wear.  She rolled her eyes and  gave me the  “are you serious?!” look.  She said “Getta you have a room full of clothes. How could you not have anything to wear?” While I didn’t have an answer for her, it did get me thinking about my situation.  What is the barrier that stops me from fully utilizing the clothes in my closet? In responding to that question, I had to acknowledge that I am a life long procrastinator.  For example, I’ll promise to lay out my work outfit the night before but then I’ll procrastinate which leads to me scrambling in the morning.  When I scramble I grab whatever is easily available.  There have been several mornings where I’ve been late to work because of my mad dash to get dressed.  In an effort to combat my procrastination, on Sundays I’ve been selecting outfits for the week.  Once I select the outfits, I make them easily accessible in the morning. So far things have been going smoothly.  I’ve been able to make my train and get to work on time. I’m not scrambling for 10 minutes picking out an outfit.  One of the benefits is that I get to  wear long neglected items in my closet like the skirt in this post.

I still struggle with procrastinating (like right now! lol) but I’m proud to say I’ve retired the saying “I don’t have anything to wear!”

Have a wonderful day!

Have a wonderful day!

When I was little my mom would say I had “bat legs”; full legs that taper down to small ankles. As silly as it sounds, for years I was very self conscious about my ankles.  I always felt awkward having a big body and tiny ankles.   For years I would wear black ankle boots with black tights to try and camouflage them.  I had convinced myself that my ankles were too small to wear  booties without tights.   After years of agonizing about my ankles, I’ve decided to let it go.  No amount of hand wringing is going to make my ankles bigger.  So instead of obsessing about how my legs look in ankle boots, I’m just going to wear them and keep it moving.  Besides I highly doubt anyone cares about my “bat legs”!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Tuesday all

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Over the weekend I had the pleasure of being the maid of honor in my older sister Virgie’s wedding.  My sister’s wedding was beautiful and full of love.  I am beyond happy that she married the love of her life my new brother in law Tyrone.

While I thoroughly enjoyed my sister’s wedding on Sunday, the weather was far from Fall like.  Since the weather has been flip flopping, I’ve been extending the life of some of my favorite Summer pieces like these Eloquii pants.  In my previous post I raved about how amazing these pants are and I wanted to show how versatile they are.   It was so easy to make them Fall ready by adding a long sleeve shirt, ankle boots and a denim jacket. As Fall progresses, I plan to wear them with tights and a turtleneck to ward off  falling temperatures. Even better, the pants are now 40% off at Eloquii when you use code ONEDAY!

Have a wonderful day!

When people usually think of velvet, images of grandma’s curtains probably pop in their heads.  While velvet has gotten a bad rap, this seasons crop of new offerings will definitely change that.  From kimonos to boots there are are great velvet pieces to add to your Fall wardrobe.  It’s also a trend that isn’t intimidating to try.  Choosing simple, easy to wear pieces are the key to trying new trends.  A pleated skirt is a great way to wear velvet without feeling outdated.  A pair of velvet boots instantly upgrades a pair of jeans.  If you’re really feeling bold try a velvet pant suit in a rich Fall color such as burgundy for a sleek look.

Have a wonderful weekend!
