Back to Black…




What I’m Wearin’…

Hey sweeties!  I’m super overdue for a post but I’m back for now at least!  How are you guys?  I’ve missed you so! 


So, here’s what I wore to my first day or orientation for a new job.

Here’s a close up of the detailing on this Henley top that I fell in love with!


The general consensus on this outfit was that it was very nice but it was too dark!  lol  I’m usually seen in bright and vibrant colors so I do admit this was a change.  However, I liked its sleek look.  What do you think?

The Bargains:

Black ankle boots from Belk's for $14,

Slate Grey pencil skirt from Lane Bryant for $12,

Black Beaded Henley top from Avenue for $10,

Grey knit Infinity scarf from Claire's for $2,

Silver Bangles (two packs) from Citi Trends for $8,

Black and Silver India Earrings from Claire's for $1

All Together:

$45!  Wowza!  Under $50!!!

What I’m Lovin’…

Perhaps this section should be named “What I’m NOT Lovin”!  Sooooo, as I mentioned above, I got a new job!  Yay!!!  Right?  Wrong!  I gotta wear a uniform!  Well, I guess I should be happy about having a job in these times so I’ve sucked it up and am trying to make the best of it.  However, my uniform is KILLING my creativity!  LOL  Ahh well!  Here are some photos of what I’ve done so far to keep from losing myself in a sea of navy polo shirts and brown khakis…ICK!

So, I’ve been killing these scarves in my hair, colorful long sleeves under short sleeves, and adding things to my badge lanyard.  Do you have any suggestions?  Please keep in mind that I work with mentally Ill children so I can’t have opened toed shoes, wild earrings, anything that can potentially be used as a weapon towards me…LOL

  Leave me a comment!  Smile

What I’m Hearin’…

Well, you guys know I love a theme!  So, this week’s “What I’m Hearin’” comes from one of my favorite ladies of song!  Ms. Amy Winehouse with “Back to Black”.
