In the Trenches


Hiya babies!  Once again, work has kept me from you guys!  I miss you so!  But enough with the excuses!  On to the fashion, baby!


What I’m Wearin’…

So, above is a shot of me at work.  I saw a photo in an Instyle magazine a couple of months and I just had to create the outfit.   It incorporated the color-blocking trend that is so hot this season, while still keeping a neutral bottom.  Plus, green and blue are my fav colors!  Let me know what you think!


LOL, the sun was sooo bright that day!  I bought this trench coat so many years ago during an awesome sale and purchased a yellow one and a red one just like it for about $15 bucks each!


My earrings and “Like a Virgin” Chain!


My Nine West magazine clutch!


My knee highs had a peek-a-boo surprise!

Kelly green rain trench from Cato's Fashions for $14,

Cobalt top from Cato's for $7,

Black Trousers from Lane Bryant for $14,

Cross Necklace from Walmart for $2,
