White Hot

Happy Monday all!

I think it’s safe to say that white shoes can very polarizing…you either love or hate them.  I’ve been on the fence about white shoes for years. Lately white heels have made a fashionable comeback which has renewed my interest in them.  So when I  found these cute Marc Fisher kitten heels marked down from $69 to $40 at Macy’s I had to scoop them up!

Casual Friday: Midi Mania

TGIF all!

First I want to thank everyone who submitted suggestions in my last post. I meant so much to see how many people have taken interest in my blog.  So again… thank you!

Finding the right skirt for your body can be tricky.  For me over the knee skirts don’t work because of my shelf booty.  After having people tell me that they could see my Spanx from behind, I had to give them up.  So when the midi length trend ushered in a few of years ago, I quickly jumped on it.   I had finally found a skirt length that worked for my body. Midi skirts are a classic wardrobe staple and is perfect for someone who doesn’t like short skirts but still wants to show some leg (ME!).  They are flattering on women of all sizes and ages.  Now that the midi is here to stay, you can find them in a variety of colors and prints.  I like dressing up my midi’s with a blouse and dressing them down with a t-shirt and denim jacket.  Next time you wear your skirt, pair it with a cool sneaker or a peep toe pump for some variety.   If you are a little on the short side, a midi might be too long but try one anyway.  You can always have it hemmed to the length you desire.  Remember, fashion “rules” are meant to be broken. Wear what feels good to YOU!

Here are some  links to my favorite midi skirts: Simply Be, Talbots Woman, Modcloth, ASOS Curve, Eshakti, and Dorothy Perkins (they go up to size 18).

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Happy Monday all!

Today is my 42nd birthday and I’m happy that while it’s still very cold outside, the sun is shining bright on my special day.  To celebrate my 42nd year of life, I treated myself to something I’ve been wanting for years…A TRIP TO PARIS! I can’t tell you how excited I am about my upcoming trip! I think I’ll probably faint when I get to the top of the Eiffel Tower (from either excitement or from my fear of heights! LOL)! Trust me I will be taking a gazillion pictures and will post them when I get back.

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Let’s Do Brunch!

TGIF all!

One of my goals this year was to meet and connect with my readers in person.   I envisioned having brunch with you ladies (and some gents)  laughing and having fun.  Last month, I met lovely event planner Erika from Your Chic Is Showing and shared with her my idea.  Erika has graciously put together a brunch meet and greet for me! Yay!


The meet and greet is on Sunday, October 27th at 12pm at Smoking Betty’s here in Philadelphia.  Seating is limited so RSVP here before October 23rd!  I’m SO excited to meet everyone. Your continuous support and love means so much to me.

I hope to see you at my brunch meet and greet on October 27th!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Edition: Summer Rewind

Happy Labor Day all!

I hope everyone is enjoying the three day holiday weekend so far.  I’ve been spending this holiday enjoying not doing one darn thing! To me, lazy weekends are the best!

Now that Summer is pretty much over (even the temperature is changing tomorrow), I thought it be cool to pick my favorite outfits of the season.  This Summer I was more open to trying to new color combinations than I was last year. I’ve decided that no matter the season I will always add color to my outfit.  I will be color blocking to the day I die! LOL

What are some of your favorite outfits from this Summer?

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Now and Later

TGIF all!

Since Fall is less than a month away (YAY!),  Ive been  starting to think of  the transitional pieces in my closet.  For me a button up shirt is one of the best transitional pieces I own.  They can be worn alone with the sleeves rolled up or layered under jackets and sweaters.  As with any new season a bunch of trends have popped up.  Plaid has been crowned one of the seasons  newest and I’m excited to try it.    Since I’m new to plaid  I kept  it simple and  went with a button down shirt.  Keeping with my love of colors, I picked a plaid combo with colors I love. So heres my take on plaid for now and later!

What are some transitional pieces in your wardrobe?

Have a great weekend!

Weekend Edition: Vacation Mode Pt. 2

Happy Monday all!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I spent my weekend doing housework, laundry and errands…I know SO exciting! LOL

I made sure amidst all the fun I was having that I documented some of  my outfits during my vacation.  Since I didn’t have my trusty tripod I had to rely on my BFF and my godson, Alex to take my pics. It felt good to be casual and not dolled up for work.  I spent the majority of my vacation lounging in bathing suits and shorts.

I promised myself this Summer I wasn’t going to wear  skirted bottom with my tankini.  To be honest I was really self conscious about  my thighs being uncovered  but by the second dip in the pool, all was forgotten!  I love this pic of me in my tankini while on Governor’s Beach in Grand Turk. Thanks Alex for taking such a good pic!

All Mixed Up

Happy Hump Day all!

I’ve been PMSing the last couple of days so I’ve been making myself feel better by continuing to get dressed  up for work. Dressing up  is the last thing I wanna do because I feel frumpy and unattractive during this time.  If I could get away wearing a potato sack with flip-flops I would. And on top of  that I start crying over the silliest things.  I swear on Sunday night I started  tearing up watching a GEICO commercial!   PMS sucks!

I’m including Monday’s OOTD in this post because I wasnt able to post then due to problems with my Internet connection at home.

How do you cope with PMS?

Have a great day!

Casual Friday/I Wish Pt. 2

TGIF all!  I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July yesterday!

You know the saying “be careful for what you wish for, you just might get it!”? Well my wish to wear shorts to work came true today! Yay! Since my courtroom is closed for the holiday, I can take advantage of the Summer dress code in my office.    Although I can wear shorts, I still work in a courthouse so I had to keep it business casual.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Something’s Gotta Give

Happy Hump Day all!

In “Something’s Gotta Give” (one of my favorite romantic comedies) there’s scene where Diane Keaton is wearing this fabulous white suit while confronting Jack Nicholson’s character at a restaurant.  After seeing her in that suit, I wanted one of my own.   Unfortunately back then  the thought of wearing all white scared the hell out of me, so I shelved my white suit dreams.  Now wearing all white is no longer  a taboo for me.  This morning, I  put together pieces in my wardrobe  and decided to make my white suit dreams come true!

Would you wear a white suit?

Have a great day!
