Hello my lovely ladies. I wish you an amazing week ahead of you!
I love the material, design and detail of this little shirt from Express. What I have been doing more is layering pieces made of silk and thinner materials. This way I can wear articles from the summer into the winter season. In this case I am wearing black silk dress shirt from BEBE underneath the leopard print top. I prefer to keep it single or in other words – one animal print per outfit. I have also paired the top with a skirt in the same color family of grays and blues. Although the skirt is not a solid print, the print is so small that the human eyes accepts it as a solid.
Nothing new here. As the quote says it best: “Fashion is more usually a gentle progression of revisited ideas!”
I have again ran into one of these modes where I feel like I don’t have anything to wear. That is why I have decided to learn to mix and match as much as possible which will allow me to enjoy my outfits without breaking the bank. In other words, you will be seeing more of those numbered posts. If there are more Styles numbered 3 than styles numbered 1 over time, that means I am on the right track. If not, that means I am back to my old ways of wearing one outfit over and over again.
I like the colors of my socks and boots to be present in my outfit so I picked brown corduroy jacket and brown/cream checkered(very small) pleaded dress. At the same time, it was getting to be too matchy-matchy so I spiced it up with red leather gloves and a red animal print clutch. I hope you like it!
This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting five wonderful ladies with the Atlanta Meetup group “Atlanta Fashion Bloggers”. We had wonderful time over lunch sharing experiences about blogging, shopping and entrepreneurship. Here is why I believe these ladies will be in my circle for a while:
1) They are all confident, driven and willing to take risks to be successful
2) They embrace challenges and enjoy learning new things
3) They love to travel and use every opportunity to do so
4) And last but not the least, they appreciate fashion, beauty and shopping deals
I look forward to our next meetup.

I am not sure if you believe in horoscopes or not. I have never read a horoscope that predicts anything bad but I have read quite a few that don’t predict anything good either. So this time of the year and around my birthday I skim through Cancer horoscopes in search of something positive and inspirational. Luckily for Crabs, it seems like it is going to be a good year (yaaay) but I truly enjoyed one specific prediction. And the reason is that it coincides with something that has been on my mind for a while and something I have really tried to work on. I am sure they say it for all the signs 🙂 but they say it very well:
“You are called upon to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It’s time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. It’s time to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly.”
I am really hard on myself when things don’t work out perfectly and it just leads to more problems and lower self-confidence. I hope this year I can let my soul fly free and enjoy life to the fullest!
Don’t you feel like you just had your birthday all over again?
We get a second chance within twelve months to get on track with our resolutions which seem to be the same year after year for me. I don’t have to be successful with all 20 of them, maybe 3 or 4. Or maybe one. And it is:
Yes, I know, not very specific, but I can start with small things such as going to bed at 10pm. If I finish what I start, I will naturally have the remaining 19 resolutions covered: work out 4 days/week, diets, weekly dates with the hubby, meditation, reading more, toastmastering, dancing and having fun, going to bed early, spending time with friends, be less sensitive, etc. etc. Imagine the side effects of getting things done such as confidence and faith. I have a clear picture in my head of what I want to be, so clear I can almost touch it. Most importantly, I have my hubby onboard so I have the support I need. This year I will be a member of winners’ club. Do you care to join me?
