Fall Back

9 Dec

I love autumn. It is my favorite season. I love the crisp air, beautiful array of colors on the leaves-fiery reds, bright oranges, and almost neon yellows. I love cozy sweaters, scarves, and boots. And hot beverages-coffees, teas, and hot chocolates. But it’s almost winter in Indiana! Before fall makes its grand exit, check out a few of my pics below!

Project Pink

23 Sep

A few weeks ago I strutted my stuff for Susan G. Komen’s fashion show. Students from the Indianapolis Institute of Art designed the clothes using leftover tee shirts and other materials from the 2017 Race for the Cure.

I was the only model who got to wear two pieces and I loved them both. My opening piece was a funky ensemble. It was a mini skirt with a halter top. The last piece was a dress with a high low hem. We had professionals styling our hair and doing our make up as well.

Although my pieces didn’t win, I still had a blast! Check out the photos below:

Hoosier Girl

“She grew up tall|She grew up right|With them Indiana boys|On them Indiana nights…”

Today I had to rep my school by wearing crimson and cream. 

 

When it’s hot out, I like to keep my look simple as possible. There is nothing worse than being hot, sticky and uncomfortable in the Hoosier heat. 


My son, who is my photographer, LOVES to catch me off guard. It’s like a game to him, lol. 


I was headed to my friend’s daughter’s open house. 

So college gear it was!

Pink, as you probably know, is my favorite color. Pale pink to be exact. So when I saw this skirt I wanted it immediately. 

“Camo goes with anything I wanna wear”according to Wiz Khalifa and I’d have to agree, lol. 


I just happened to have a dusty pink cami that matched perfectly. I added a sleeveless distressed denim jacket and a pair of pink sandals. 



I completed the look with a cute pink bow necklace.

Happy 4th lovelies! The weather here in Indy is cool today, oddly, but I still wanted to represent FOJ. My ensemble is simple enough. I couldn’t resist adding this statement necklace. I paid a pretty penny for it so I try to incorporate it my OOTD every chance I get. 

Of course I stayed within the classic color scheme. 
My six year old, bless his baby heart, is my photographer. 

Usually he does a good job but loves to get goofy as you can see, lol. 

I really should’ve worn a white tank underneath as obviously my nude bra showed up to crash the style party-uber annoying.

The Glamorous Life

4 Jul

I participated in the opener for a women’sconference at my church. Granted it’s warm outside and we modeled furs, but there is something about wearing a real fur coat that makes you feel so luxe. My coat was simply gorgeous. I felt like the Ice Queen, lol. It even matched the grey highlight in my hair. 

Underneath I wore all black as I did not want to compete or clash with the coat. 


My coat was only $4800 and 60% off of that price. I was in love. 

Elan Furs was gracious enough to let us use the coats for our event which worked for them, too. Several coats were sold after the show. 


I’m glad I participated as I had an awesome time and wasn’t the slightest bit nervous ripping the runway! 

Uptown 

4 Jul

Ah, another nod to my favorite musical artist of all time.
Anywho, this is not the outfit I wanted to wear to dinner with my friend in a ritzy part of town. I had planned to wear a pair of white skinny jeans but Macy’s foiled my plans by leaving the security tag on them. I was ticked!
So, I had to move on to plan b which consisted of the number below. The shirt describes my current life perfectly, lol.

I didn’t have any cute pants to wear with this top so I opted for a skirt normally reserved for work. Staying with the color scheme and dot matrix, I added the peep toe booties to the mix. I grabbed a pearl collar necklace with touches of gold since I didn’t have time to change bags.

My former boss always said o looked like Minnie Mouse in the skirt. Now only if I would’ve had the black Mickey kisslock bag!
