What I'm Wearing: Blue on Black

Welcome to Tuesday: the day that never seems to end! If Tuesday were a theme park A) That would be it's slogan and B)  It would be the worst theme park ever. Are you feeling me on this? Tuesdays always seem to drag on way worse than any other day and I always seem tired and irrational. For example: I got out of the shower this morning, put on my "unmentionables" (that phrase has always made me laugh), looked in the mirror and decided I was fat. I freaked out at my love handles, thighs, tummy, basically everything. Where I could certainly stand to get in better shape - I realize my freak out was ridiculous. In the wise words of LMFAO "I'm Sexy and I know it."

This floral top was calling my name this morning so I worked around it. I pulled out this blue tiered skirt (no it's not all wrinkly, only partially), some thick black tights, an awesome vintage sweater my mom picked up for me and my cobalt shoes. I feel like I've been wearing a lot of black lately and for that I apologize - I love black and own a lot of it.

Skirt: H&M, Top: Kohl's, Sweater: Vintage, Tights: Elder Beerman, 
Shoes: Guess ($2.25) at Plato's Closet, Necklace: Elder Beerman

  10. I totally know what you mean about days where you feel like it's never going to end, for me that day is Monday! And honestly Kassi, I feel the same about myself right now, I am feeling a little pudgy...hehe! But i know once the weather warms up I'll be walking 5 days a week, now I do maybe 3.. Since turning 30, let me tell u the metabolism isn't the same! Love the outfit, the tiered skirt is gorgeous and so are those knock out heels ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
