Too Sheer?

This weekend is full of birthday festivities. Tonight we have a birthday dinner planned for one of our friends. Yesterday after work I went out with a mission to find a casual dinner dress.

Store after store I couldn’t find what I was looking for. I also still have this struggle where I don’t know if I’m supposed to be shopping in the Ladies or the Juniors section. (I think any twenty something can relate)

Towards the end I stumbled upon this really cute sheer black top. I bought it and headed back home. I first called my sister to ask what her thoughts were on sheer black tops with just a black bra underneath. I then texted my best friend {Pearls in Portland} who is more on the conservative side what her opinion was. I even put it on and asked my two guy roommates. All said that it looked great.

What are your thoughts on black sheer tops: Sexy or Skanky?

Parties in the Fall

We have a birthday party for a few of our good friends next weekend and I am currently struggling on trying to figure out what to wear. It will be outside and the weather is supposed to be 85 degrees. Finding clothes for an 85 degree FALL has been challenging. Because if this party was in Oregon- for starters we would be inside and we would all be wearing leggings and sweaters or flannels.

After browsing Pinterest for ideas; I fell in love with the mini skirt

Always Be Kind

October is National Bullying Awareness month and today is National Stop Bullying Day-

A day that means a lot to me. When we first thought of bullying when we were kids we often pictures kids getting shoved into lockers or stealing each others lunches. As we have gotten older and technology has become a prominent part of our lives bullying has become a much larger problem.

In high school I was bullied for a long time. It got to the point where I had to take a break from school because I couldn’t handle it any longer. And after it was all over it effected me for quite sometime. But I am thankful it was me he targeted because I would never want anyone else to go through what I went through. Unfortunately people don’t realize how much their words can hurt someone. I don’t think people understand that words have not only ruined lives, but they’ve taken peoples lives.

My challenge for you all is to take the last part of October, the next two weeks and don’t say anything negative about anyone. Sadly, even just going one day, you will realize how difficult it is.

I am very guilty of speaking before thinking. But this is something that I am trying to work on. I want to be known for loving people, not bringing others down.

Fall Booties

During the year I basically live in my cowboy boots I got last year. They are so comfy and versatile. But recently Fall has gotten me obsessed with booties.

Since sandals are only for the summer, and its still too warm to wear pants, I’ve found that booties are perfect for the South. You can wear them with skinny jeans, leggings, dresses and shorts.
