a bit of lace

This has been haunting me:

Jan202010_0006-1
I’ve been trying to eat a bit better since my diet currently consists of redbull, hot cheetos and chocolate in any form. So I took the plunge and purchased one yogurt. I don’t like yogurt. It grosses me out. But asparagus used to also disgust me out and now it’s one of the very few fruits and vegetables I actually like. I’ve had this in my refrigerator for a week and I just keep looking at it. Sorry, nothing to do with fashion/style..but I just need to try and eat it soon. Maybe I will like it.

So my outfit today is pretty weak. I didn’t give much thought to what I was going to wear but to spice up a simple dress with lace tights and a pair of heels I got for a steal last year for $11. I thought I would post it anyways since I like updating this blog and it may be harder for me to this weekend as I will be attempting to ski for the first time at Boyne Mountain in Northern Michigan. Wish me luck!

grey gloom day

This outfit is pretty simple. I wore this to work today and I was excited to wear my new sweater. I got it half off at a boutique. It’s a size large, but I like how it fits. I just love oversized sweaters and tees. I pass these black jeans off as dress pants at work. WIth a pair of heels, I feel dressy!

Today felt like such a blah day. Everything is grey and gloomy. To combat Seasonal Affective Disorder, I decided to join a dance/aerobics class. So now, every Tuesday I will participate in Zumba and show everyone my white girl moves. I had so much fun making an ass out of myself and exercising at the same time.

running errands

THANK YOU Tieka for redesigning my blog! It fits me much better than the template I previously selected. She definitely knows me and created something that fits my personality perfectly.


Today’s look is a result of dirty hair and throwing something together to run errands in. I was so proud of myself for wearing my regular scarf as an infinity scarf. I tied the ends together and then wrapped it in two loops. I’m sure so many people already do this, but I was so impressed with myself. hehe.

I used to wear my hair up on top of my head a lot in high school, but I’ve become increasingly self-conscious of this bump on my forehead that resulted from an accident on a swing when I was in 4th grade. I saw this photo below in Glamour magazine and I thought this model and her hairstyle was so cute. Of course, I don’t have gorgeous red straight hair, but I thought I would give the messy bun a try again.

I ran into a t.v. reporter I sort of know at Michigan State University’s student union. He was working on a story and I’ve only talked to him in professional capacities–where I’m dressed up for work or photographing an event. He seemed to surprised to see me and said, “Oh.. you blend right in.” I got a kick out of that. I tried SO hard not to do my hair like this in college. Here I was blending in with them all!

we were walkin’ downtown…

Today I feel back to normal! No longer sicky! Tieka and I got together for lunch at the Olive Garden and then took some pictures in downtown Muskegon. I absolutely love photographing Tieka. Everything she does is so cute and she doesn’t just stand there. She moves around and is a photographer’s dream. She’s just a natural in front of the camera. We then took some video of each other walking around and being silly. I think she’s going to make a video out of it haha can’t wait to see it! I was dressed a bit fancy today, but I’ve been wearing sweatpants almost all day everyday, so I decided to wear a comfy skirt and one of my newer purchases–a fabulous shirt with shoulder pads. The skirt is so versatile and it will go with nearly anything I own. Click here to see how I wore it the last time.

muskegon

I’m in Muskegon for the weekend. I managed to take a few photos today despite STILL being sick. I went to the hospital for the second time this weekend and got some shots and I immediately felt better. Hence the quite casual look… I own a couple of these t-shirt dresses and they are so comfortable. The cable knit tights kept me warm and I didn’t feel like wearing jeans like I normally do, so I wore this to the movies with my grandparents. Petey, my grandparents’ pomeranian makes me feel better so I played with him for a little bit today.
