You ever wanted to dress up , but a small piece of you wanted to be laid back and fabulous? That’s the story of my life. I’m always having this battle. Every day for work, I’m only a millimeter away from throwing on some retro Jordan’s *(cues Bad and Bougie). I recently caved to both of my heart’s desires and paired sequins with sneakers.

I’ve wanted a sleeveless coat since 2015. Yes, I’ve been lusting for nearly two years. I avoided the cool coats, for several reasons. One, I’m “cold natured.” It’s kind of weird that I’m always freezing. Needless to say I was miserable during those  Upstate New York winters. Secondly, the coats didn’t seem functional in the subzero temperatures. I’m usually fashion over function, but when hyperthermia is an option I get into formation real quick.

I’ve been waiting on consistent cold weather, like a kid waits for Christmas. We’ve had a few cool days, but two days later it’s back in the high 60′s or low 70′s. I’m not really complaining , but it would be great to experience winter like weather for at least a month. Because this weather changes like the wind, I haven’t put away some of my summer clothes. I haven’t technically unloaded my cold weather items either. Not to mention, figuring out what to wear is a headache. I’m talking drama-filled, especially when it comes to work. Continue Reading »
