The Short of the Story




















Pay attention very closely to the above picture. The above is something you’ve never seen before on this blog – me wearing shorts.  This may not seem like such a big deal, but to me it is. Like every woman, there are certain things about my body I’d like to change and things that I’m uncomfortable with.  For the past few years I’ve rarely worn shorts at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love shorts, especially distressed denim cut offs, but for whatever reason, lately I’ve feel quite self conscious wearing them.



Coral, Stripes and Bling!

Decided to change things up a bit with this outfit post! Presenting me in “live action“! Haha! Just yet another example of me going to my “happy place” fashion-wise in some more great bright color. Coral is a very coveted color so far this spring season in both fashion and makeup. Fine with me! Coral is a color I’ve always loved and will definitely continue to love throughout this spring and coming summer season!

What bright colors have you been loving so far?

I decided to go “all out” with this outfit – jewel tones, sequins, houndstooth, “Michael Jackson” fingerless zebra print gloves, ripped jeans, purple sunglasses and booties. Not too much, right? What can I say;  I like experimenting. I recently have been doing a lot of “experimenting” fashion-wise lately. More to the point, I’ve been trying to mix and match different pieces and create different combinations in my current wardrobe I otherwise never would have of.

I’m trying to do what I can to cut back on shopping, as I’ve been doing a bit too much of that lately.  Funny how many different outfits you can come up with using what you already have! Hey, maybe this living on a budget and more within my means thing won’t be so bad, right?!

Have you “shopped” your closet lately? What different and unexpected combos have you come up with?











I am an avid believer in adding a little “daily sparkle” to each outfit, whether it be via some fun accessories, a dress, shirt, sweater, shoes, etc. Today is an example of what I like to call “Casual Glam“. The sparkle here comes in my purple (actually I kind of think it’s maybe even more purplish pinkish) cardigan.
