Summer Outing :: Printed Shorts & Patent Leather

Summer Outing :: Printed Shorts & Patent Leather

Happy Happy FRIDAY!!!

The weekend is here.  Do something fun!  Kiss somebody, smack somebody – do something to let people know you’re still on this earth!

Today’s Topic:

Don’t even bring it in the house

I was at the grocery store the other day and I was in a hurry.  Lately I’ve been wanting to be naughty.  I’m walking down the aisle of the grocery store and BAM!  Right in front of me is a box of Entenmann’s chocolate covered donuts.  Guys you don’t understand.  The feeling that came over me can only be compared to the euphoric bliss of a first kiss (a good one, not the kind that you regret 10 minutes later).  I was overwhelmed.  I didn’t know what to do.  I stood there.

It was all a blur.  The next thing I know, I was tearing through the flimsy carton in my kitchen and nothing could stop me.  I touched the soft silky texture of the chocolate donut with my fingers.  It was at this moment that my hands and my mouth were in perfect sync.  Each had a job to do and it was on.  My brain was screaming S-T-O-P!!! Have you lost your damn mind?  Do you know how hard you work out at the gym and you still barely see any results.  What the hell do you think this is gonna do for your fashion blog?  NO!  Put it down, my brain begged me.

Have you ever had an urge so strong that if Jesus himself was standing right there telling you not to do it, you’d try to reason with him.  You’d try to convince him that your way is better than his and that HE needed to loosen up a bit.  It was bad.  Even my kids were like “Mom NO! – You shouldn’t eat those”  But I didn’t notice because I forgot I even had kids.  I remembered Chewy (that’s my dog) because he wanted some too.  He was hoping some crumbs would fall out of my mouth on to the floor so he could commit sin.  And he’s not even supposed to have chocolate.  It could kill him.  He didn’t care.  I love my dog.  What a bad ass.

I should have never even brought it in the house.

Now, on to the fashion…….

Today’s outfit is simple with a hint of understated elegance.

I love taking a black and white garment like these shorts from Express and then adding another piece with a bright color.  It just makes the outfit pop

I added the this belt with gold accents from BCBG which lends a certain sophistication immediately

I love these Monolo Blahnik heels.  They are patent leather with a cute little bow.  So girly, but I’ve worn these heels to close many deals, so don’t let the cutesy fool ya.  LOL
