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!

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!

Color Me Peach and Black

2 Jul

Any true Prince fan should understand the title for this post. 

I’ve had this shirt for years and am just now wearing it. I bought the shorts last year at Nordstrom Rack on clearance. It’s a small miracle really that I can still fit them considering I’ve gained weight, lol. 

When I’m hanging out with my sons, I like to look like a mom minus the waist high jeans circa 1980. However, I don’t want to look like their grandma either. 

So the quest for the middle road was found here: 

At the library with my wee one. My shopping tote courtesy of my lovely friend Karen who resides in Abu Dhabi. 

I love the drama in the back. 
And the front as well. You can see the geometric print of the pockets peeking out from one of the rips. 

I added a ornate necklace to serve as a faux collar for the mandarin neck and kept everything else simple. 

Completely covered yet still stylish for the win!
