Lately I've been obsessed with fashion. I think it's cuz I've slowly been losing weight (20lbs so far-yea me!!! But I have 15 or so to go). I'm loving that I feel better, thinner, and it makes me want to dress/look cute(r). Because of this, I've been perusing fashion blogs/chat boards a lot lately and so I stumbled across this blog- Kendieveryday. I love her style and she has cute and quirky posts each day.

I wanted to participate in her 30 for 30 challenge (take 30 items in your closet to mix/match for 30 days of outfits) but here's the problem-I wear a uniform to work. Every.Single.Day. This makes it extremely difficult to do that 30 for 30 challenge and let me tell you, it's horrible for a girl's self-esteem. I tell my husband that putting that uniform on makes my cuteness level drop at least 10 points.

Don't get me wrong. Some days it's awesome to not have to think about what you'll wear. You just dress and go. But other days (most days), I want to wear the things in my closet! Not a tan button-up shirt, black pants, black socks, black belt, black shoes. Ugh. The joke at work is that we look like Busch Gardens workers. I should be leading a safari yelling cheesy jokes into a megaphone for tourists as I point out a giraffe on their right. Soooo not attractive. Anyhow.

Back to the 30 for 30 challenge. How exactly can I do this? I'm not sure, I'm still trying to work that one out. But, for now, I figured I'd show you my weekend wear (well, 1 day at least). I bought this dress because I loved the colors and the bohemian feel to it. Perfect with my boots:
Not the best pic but  you get the idea. I should really think about cleaning my bathroom mirror sometime. The pics might look better. And I know all you peeps out there with 3 feet of snow are totally jealous I can rock a short sleeve dress cuz  I live in FL and it's approx 70 degrees here! (So there are some perks of living in Florida, who knew?)

Anyhow...I promise to try and squeeze some posts in that are decorating related (in fact I'll have one soon-a mini-makeover on my bedroom). But right now I'm really into clothes so I'm gonna have my fair share of outfit posts.

In fact, one thing I'm gonna try and do is show some copycat fashion-I totally adore some of Kendi's outfits and I will be trying to shop in my own closet to replicate some of them. I'm sort of stalking her right now cuz I'm just amazed at how she puts outfits together so beautifully, stylishly and easily .(I promise this is healthy imitation-is-the-sincerest-form-of-flattery stalking not the Every-Breath-You-Take-Police-rendition type of stalking).

Stay tuned!


  1. Love that dress!!! Looks good on ya. Can't wait till the pounds start coming off me. Been exercising at this neat place in Marlow after work, but haven't gotten a full week in yet due to the snow these past two weeks. I'm believing by the end of May I will have lost at least 10 lbs. Love ya!!!!
