One Week Old

Happy Friday!!! This week went by so fast! For me this week was really good. The icing on the cake was the compliment I received from the judge I work with. Now I know that doesn’t sound like much, but if you met him you would understand. Imagine the Grinch with glasses and a black robe on and you’ll get my drift! LOL

Today my blog turns a week old (YAY!!!). Writing here has given me so much confidence. I feel radiant when I walk. I’ve never felt that way before. I feel taller, braver and smarter. The positive feedback I’ve received has been amazing. My older sister Virgie sent me a text message that made me cry. She read my blog and said she was proud of me. My sister and I were not close growing up, but in recent years our relationship has blossomed. To hear this from her touched me deeply. I’m blessed to have family and friends who love and accept me for who I am. Please love yourselves. Dont waste time worrying about others opinions or thoughts. Care about yourself everyday. Embrace yourself, even the things you don’t like. Trust me, when you do you will feel like a million bucks!

My outfit today is real simple. Black and white. My blouse is from Old Navy. I like ruffles, so right away it appealed to me. Instead of wearing a blazer, I remembered I had a black vest from Torrid tucked away (next to the dress I wore in Wednesdays post! LOL) and decided to pair it with my blouse. I like the look. Casual and simple. I’m wearing my black straight leg trouser jeans from the Avenue. I’ve moved away from bootcut jeans. I conditioned myself to believe only bootcut jeans and pants look good on me. Puhleaze! I decided to try the straight legs and havent regretted it once.

I hope you enjoy my post. Please leave a comment. I love hearing from everyone!

Have a great weekend!

    Outfit is cute, esp for casual Friday. Your pants look a bit big on you. You could’ve went one more size down….
