On a Windy Day

Windy days have forced me indoors for fashion of the day shoots.  That's not exactly how I intended this blog to be.  Please be patient as I wait out the weather, and hopefully soon you'll be getting more of a glimpse of the city I live in.

I don't put a huge amount of thought into the outfits I wear on a daily basis.  Especially when I'm inside.  For me it seems more contrived to put on an outfit when I'm just hanging out in my house.  I'm more of a jeans and tee girl when I'm at home.  Of course, I do also wear shorts and comfy dresses, like the one in these pictures, when I'm lounging around. 

I blog because it's a way for me to share my interests in fashion, whether it be fashion steals I've found and want to share with everyone, or images of what I'm wearing.  Fashion isn't my only interest.  It just happens to be what I'm working on at the moment.

I do blogging because it provides a platform to share my interest for fashion, style, photography and creativity. - See more at:

Personally, I don't follow trends religiously.  I use them to gauge what is new, what I'll be seeing in the real world, but I stick to my own style.  I believe in buying pieces that outlast trends, and incorporating only a tiny amount of trend in what I'm wearing.  I'm not about street style or peacocking.  I don't take a what-I-am-wearing photo every day.  That said, big patterns mixed with eye-catching colors, this is probably my favorite fashion season, trend wise, to date. 

The dress was found at Ross.  The earrings, sterling silver and aquamarine, were a trade show gift.  The bracelet was found on a trip to Vegas.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

When One Good Thing Leads To Another

April was first declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by presidential proclamation in 1983.  Since its declaration, April has been a time for families and communities to acknowledge and understand the importance of working together to prevent child abuse.  For my part, not only do I write campaigns to remind everyone how important this cause is, I donate tweets, and a portion of my closet to shelters that provide for women and children escaping abusive homes.  I encourage everyone to get involved, and do what they can to support the cause. 
The day these pictures were taken was not a great weather day, but the winds were broken.  Fortunately, I have a very motivated attitude toward all aspects in my life.  If I want to achieve something, I work to achieve it.  I watched and waited for the moments when the winds weren't harsh and was able to get a handful of pictures done.  I wanted to get this outfit done quickly, the pink belt is a donation.  I'm giving it to a victim of abuse.  Her favorite color is pink.  The images were taken before Easter, and were meant to be released on the 1st.  I had a slight issue with sleep deprivation, so I'm sorry for the delay. 

My skinny cords, Hudson, are made in the USA(Yay!), and were found at RueLaLa.  The top is Lavender Brown and was found at 15dollarstore.  My gemstone bracelets were from a gemstone trade show.  The gold cross bracelet was found at Amazon.  My earrings were found at Target.  The Belt was found at Walmart.  The shoes, Miss Me, are from ASOS.
