Outfit of the Day: Tuesday 4/2

I recently started a new position at a corporate office and I've been adjusting to the company's stricter (than my previous employer's) dress code. In my previous position, I was able to dress slightly more casual, and was surrounded by more fashionable peers (I worked in high-end retail). However, here I feel like I live in the world of the BORING BLACK DRESS PANT. If you don't know anything about me, know this: I am FAR from boring and I hate to blend in. Needless, to say this has been  quite an adjustment. I am on a quest to find a happy medium between the company's dress code and my more  fashionable taste. 

Here's a look at what I wore today:  

So, today's outfit is quite simple:

  • Top: Nordstrom BP Dept - super soft!
  • Pants: Paper-bag waist Forever 21 (from last summer)- they are a nice, deep teal color
  • Shoes: my favorite pink flats from Old Navy 
  • One of my favorite necklaces- I wear it with simple tops just to add a little pop of color!
  • And featuring those disgusting knee-highs that I have to wear for work lol
So, there you have it! This whole look was probably less than $100

Here are a few more pics:

My attempt at dressing up my lil cube, lol!

Ok, Thanks for listening to my rant!

Allow Me To Introduce Myself...

I guess I should start by saying, I have no idea what I am doing lol. I guess I got the idea to start this blog out of a need to do more with myself and an outlet for me to share my love of many things: mainly Fashion, Pink, Shoes, Handbags, Art, Writing, Pink, Food, and did I mention Pink? LOL. I have always loved writing and over the years I've been a fan of a few blogs. I check Necolebitchie.com and Straightfromthea.com pretty much everyday. I have read both Necole and Michelle's stories on how they got started blogging. I by no means plan to be famous from a blog (although it may be cool for a day or two). This is just an outlet for me to share my random thoughts, my weekend arts and craft projects lol, and my fashion finds.  I have to admit, I am quite nervous to share stuff on here, because I tend to be quite shy until I get comfortable around people, but hey......here goes nothing.

Let's be real, nobody's reading this LOL.

Here's 5 random facts about me:

  1. I recently graduated from BGSU with a BS in Apparel Merchandising & Product Development
  2. I LIVE for shoes - I like my heels high, baby! 
  3. I wish I could sing- but when Bey is playing, You can't tell me nothing!
  4. I love mixing expensive and inexpensive items- you don't have to spend a lot to look great, it's all about how you put the complete look together.
  5. My goal in life is to be F-A-B-U-L-O-US, wear great shoes, live financially comfortably, and keep a smile on my face!
