Black and White Ruffle Blouse

Okay I declare this week Black and Red week. I had that thing happen this morning where I opened my closet, stared blankly at all my clothes and thought " I have nothing to wear".  Why is that? Especially when doing the 30 for 30 Challenge there are endless possibilities with the 30 items.  So, I thought to myself, okay, I am going to only wear black and red combinations this week.

I bought this blouse a couple of years ago and dont wear it much since I thought it looked like an old lady blouse after I wore it a couple of times, but hopefully I don't look like an old lady today.  As I as was walking to work this morning a physician I know who lives in the neighbourhood stopped and said " Wow Jodi, you are looking so Urban Chic",  " You look amazing"... of course that was nice to hear, and then I quickly hurried along since he is one of those guys who is a lover of all women and is getting on in age and still single, if you know what I mean... LOL

Have my spin class tonight and get to use my new carbon fibre bike on the windtrainer.. can't wait.. and hey, my bike is red, white and black as well... isn't that cool!!

Happy Tuesday, and Hi to New Followers!! hugs and kisses,, mwah xoxo Jodi



  1. Well your physician neighbor is right - you do look amazing! I love the combination of black, white and red, so I'm excited to see what you do with it!

  2. Love the red skirt (still seeking one myself) and of course I love the trench :)

  3. You are quite urban chic...but you might want to avoid the guy! I really like the red skirt as well...I think there are days that our creativity runs dry...but you got it spot on today!

  4. Well aren't you a hot tamale! I love this outfit and I'm excited to see all the red to come this week.

  5. LOVES IT! I am wearing black and red (well a red purse) in my post too. I guess great minds think alike.
    As for the Dr...danger!

    PS adorable trench I am in need of one and there is the cutest one with a bow in the back at Joe Fresh right now...$59...sigh, must wait for sale, cuz I am cheap, cheap, cheap!

  8. Fabulous! I'm rather excited for the rest of black, white and red week.

  9. I really like the blouse on you, and you don't look like an old lady at all. You look hot. I mean people went out of their way to compliment you so you know you looked good.

  10. Jodi! You did not just negate that guy's compliment did you? No. I can't imagine you would do that! (sheesh!) I think the blouse looks GREAT! especially with the red skirt!

  11. You are not looking like an old lady here!
    I am jealous of your trench too
    I keep looking at them, but our weather just doesn't justify the purchase.
    Maybe I will keep my eyes peeled for one on clearance in the next month or so

  12. Girl, you are urban chic! all the way!
    I love your style and I love your hair. That's how I'd like mine if I ever had the patience to grow it.

  13. Urban Chic you are! Of course you know I'm all for black, white and red! Cute outfit!

    ps. I LOVE your trench coat!

  14. I like black. I would wear this blouse with a black skirt, to 'add' to my height. On you it looks wonderful with the red skirt.

  15. Don't you just love a compliment thats more than just "you look nice". Not that you look nice isn't good mind you, but I like that little extra, "Urban Chic" part. I think the top is pretty, not old woman at all.

    Have a great day,


  16. Loving the black and red but it's the coat that completely slays me. It looks amazing on you.

  17. You definitely do NOT look like an old lady today. The blouse looks fantastic with the red skirt.

  18. hey wow this is so cool I think its really interesting and strong to have your own fashion blog as a real woman who stands in her life so this is really cool love your jacket!!



  19. i'm in love with your coat! it's perfect

  20. That's awesome, you match your bike! That blouse could totally get old lady on you but with that red pencil skirt, no way!!!!
