Gangsta Chain


I'm seriously having a fashion crisis. Everything I put on these days just feels wrong. If a fairy godmother came along and granted me a a few wishes one of them would be a completely new wardrobe starting from scratch.  Sometimes I think I get limited by what I have and how I know to wear it and I can't see past that. Meaning, its outside of my realm of knowingness on how to mix items with something else.

All I want to do lately is wear my baggy comfy jeans, my favorite sugoi hoodie and my pink nike frees.   Maybe I'll work from home tomorrow so I can do just that!

What are your comfort go-to clothes?

Another Fashion Failure



Another day of hideousness. I am on a roll right now.  GAWD.  Another blouse I bought a couple of years ago. I pulled it out and thought I would wear something other than black for  change (lets try blue).  I thought it would look cute. Come home. Take my photo. EGAD!  If only I had time to take photos BEFORE going out in public.  On another note, I thought my daffodils looked cute on the kitchen table so you get a photo of that :)

This one goes into the thrift store pile. Unless one of you wants it?

Happy Monday.

Brown Capri's



Its been pretty busy at work lately and I hope you don't think I was hiding after the hideousness the other day with that striped tunic :) .  I must admit, I am embarrassed I even went to work dressed like that but you gotta mess up once in awhile right? LOL

We have guests this weekend and have our last long trail run before this 50km trail race I am doing coming up. I cant wait. Trail running is the BEST.  LOVE IT. FOR SURE.

Anyway, short note since its friday. Have a super weekend everyone!!

Stoopidest Purchase of the Year





An alien must have inhabited my body for a few hours on Sunday. I went to a store to pick up something for someone and walked out with this tunic. I even tried it on. I knew better than to even take it off the rack. I was thinking of Ally's comments "you look good in bold", I remembered Gracey's pattern mixing that I was so inspired by.  I took it off the hanger, into the change room, tried it on.  KNEW it wasn't flattering yet when I came out all the girls cooed and said, thats SO CUTE.  I even walked out with a smile on my face.

Tuesday morning. I get dressed.  Look like I'm wearing a sack.  The hubs convinces me I need a belt with it and tries to downplay the hideousness of it all.  I go to work dressed in it ANYWAY.

All day I just wanted to ask someone what they thought but I fought the urge to make them uncomfortable. I only needed 1, only 1 comment to reassure me that I didn't look like a complete clown. But I DIDNT ASK.

I even tried tying it in a knot at the side (Photo 4).  No returns.  Hopefully they might let me exchange it?

Do you ever return something if you have worn it for at least a few hours?
(At least I can laugh at myself here.... :(

Nordic Sweater





I was breaking the fashion rules for my body type with this sweater vest.  Its thick, undefined waist, drop sleeve design... all things I'm not supposed to wear.

I find its one thing seeing yourself in the mirror but for me, seeing myself in these photos gives me a much more objective view of how things look.  I actually don't mind this sweater even though in the mirror I was unsure.  The ring was a gift from my girlfriend Rita from one of her trips to Europe. I love big rings and I love turquoise. She always finds the best surprise gifts that I love so much!!

I was warm and comfy and felt great today.  Hey, and its friday as well! What more can one ask for?

Have a super weekend!!

Brown Giant



Yes, spring is coming but it was rainy and cold today! I wanted to be warm so wore a warm (ish) color. The other change is that for the first time I tried wearing flats with these pants which I probably should have done right from the first time I was talked into buying these pants.  DUH.  Oh well. Live and learn (again and again).

Have you ever paired things together only to realize (WAY after the  fact) that you were not with the program? Hello, like did you NOT get the memo??

Black Dress and Animal


I had about 10 minutes to get home, take my photo, get changed, grab a snack  and then head off to my run session.  Crazy busy at work right now but I'm still managing to get my outfits in order and take photos.  Its been great connecting with you all more lately as well!!

I don't wear this dress much cuz it  seems bait short for work but I broke it out today and added some animal print for fun. I love this scarf.  I actually really love black and brown together and would never have paired the 2 colors had I not been blogging. I get so many ideas from reading all of your blogs which is fantastic. So. Thank you to those of you who wear black and brown together. I got the idea from you!!

Vintage Pink




I love this vintage jacket I got awhile back, its just got a HUGE pointy collar that I am abit embarrassed to been seen wearing it. I mean, I could spear an animal with the points on this darn collar!  Anyway, I was driving home from a meeting and stopped at this seedy kind of location to take my photo.  I forgot that I had these cheap sunglasses on (was the only thing I had in the car and had to wear because it was so bright driving). I look like a bug. So, now I look like a bug who could spear an animal with my jacket collar. NICE.

Happy Tuesday!   Did you wear anything crazy or embarrassing today?

Winter be Gone



The trees are all blooming here and the flowers are exploding with color.  Its almost but not quite time to pull out the spring clothes.  I will wear boots as late into spring/summer as possible though since its one of my favorite fashion items.

Do you have a fashion favorite that you wear all the time or would wear all the time if you could?

Friday Wear with a Gangsta Chain




I had a meeting on Friday so I thought I'd wear more classic look.  And I know I am not supposed to wear this kind of collar-- its boring on me. However, I thought the pop of color in the sweater would help balance it out.

I had bought this necklace awhile ago and the first time I wore it my man said "That looks like a gangsta chain"... I thought that was hilarious and ended up not wearing it. I pulled it out today and thought I'd rock it with this outfits since the meeting I was going to has a lot of politics going on between some of the players and I thought to myself- I could alway pull the necklace off and use it like they did in the Anchorman News Fight (#ilovethatmovie :)
