Did you ever keep a diary when you were a teenager or a little girl? You know what I’m talking about. It probably was pink and girly, had a lock on it and only you had the “secret key” to open it. You’d vent about your parents, gush over boys, talk smack about that “mean girl” at your school. It was the inner most workings of your young and crazy teenage mind.
Yep – I plead guilty. My best friend and I in high school actually shared one – yes – we shared one. We though we were so cool. We’d take turns taking it with us to our classes throughout the day and would right all kinds of crazy stuff in it. Oh memories…..
I friends am an accessories girl. To me an outfit never seems to be complete without an accessory or two. The simplest of outfits can instantly be dressed up with a great statement piece of jewelry. For a while now (and hey….it still is) it was statement necklaces; the bigger the better. Now my eye has been swayed by another – midi rings! First, it was the over sized ring, usually worn on your index finger. Now we all seem can’t seem to get enough of midi rings; they are everywhere! Here are a few that I’ve been eyeing.
So, I noticed there seems to be a “theme” of sorts going on around here on the blog….when it comes to my “off duty” (not “model off duty”….HAHA! “Not at Work” attire) dressing. Graphic tees, ripped boyfriend jeans and heels. Hey…there could be worse “patterns” I could be stuck in, right?
image Words that ring very true to me right now. Sometimes i think the value of hard work and good work ethic are undervalued. In my opinion true work ethic and hard work are two of the most important and best values you can have today. No one should expect things to just happen and then complain when they don’t happen. Not happy with your current situation? Well then do something about it! Hustle! I’ll be honest, I did have to learn the hard way and learn a few “life lessons” so to speak before I realized how true the above is. I’ll never take it for granted again! :)
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You are seeing an outfit post here on the blog! It’s been a while since my last one, a little over two months to be exact. Keeping it casual for my “comeback outfit post” and wearing my favorite pair of sunglasses, which may or may not be covering up some major dark circles. Nothing like the upcoming 4th of July holiday to stir up some outfit inspiration, eh?
