I used to love it… I still do

At the beginning and end of every day I’m a fashion girl. I have such a long love affair with style and fashion. I guess it would have to be beyond an affair at this point cause we are in love y’all!

Is it normal to turn into a stylist when getting dressed in the morning? That’s what usually happens to me. Most of the moms at drop off are rocking their workout clothes and I have put together a whole outfit. It’s probably ridiculous. It’s not because I’m trying to do too much. I just really love getting dressed. I loving playing with textures and colors and ACCESSORIES!!! I don’t do go for it like I’m still going into the office but it’s just a little something I do to still feel like me. At first, I told my husband I didn’t need to try to be cute anymore since I’m with the kids all day.  His response was a big, fat “WHATEVER!” LOL!  He told me to keep doing what I’ve been doing.

Shortly after that conversation, I ordered this new sweatshirt with leather sleeves and this blinged out heart one too.

I’m pretty sure I know where this whole style thing started for me. Modeling school! I don’t know if I ever told you that I attended modeling school back in the day. My mother sent me because I had major tall girl self esteem issues. Major! That’s a whole other post. Being in modeling school, we had to study fashion magazines for style, poses and to be in the know regarding designers. I was 13 and this was a whole new fascinating world. It was then that I started playing around with my own personal style.

After modeling school I jumped with both feet into that world and began modeling. That lasted on and off for years. Later I started a fashion and beauty blog. I kept that going until the birth of my son. I really want to start that back up again. Le sigh. No time. One day?

When I started this blog I talked more about style in the beginning. I drifted away from that.  I guess I drifted because working at the Style Network was filling in that gap. I was surrounded with all the style and fashion I needed while I was there. Well now I want to bring more of that back to this space. Yay!Maybe an outfit of the day post here and there or some trends I wanna try. We’ll see.

So many goals… so little time!!! What’s your relationship with fashion/style? Are you lovahs, besties or associates?

    Associates here! I do better than many of the other school moms, but worse than others yet. I do put on real pants and not flannel, sweat or yoga so that’s why I end up in the middle of the pack.
    I am so unsurprised that you used to model! You still could for sure!

    We are lovahs! I also attended modeling school and modeled a teensy bit. 🙂 I love the sweatshirts you’ve chosen.

    Such cute pictures of you, and yes I love the sweatshirts! I’m moving away from them now (and jeans) and heading into a new love–skirts. As for the fashion part of the blog, I used to love reading the quotes you used to leave from the designers. It was truly inspiring.

    As for my relationship with fashion, I’m a lurker–is that even a term used for fashion? There are somethings that I love, but would never buy.

    I am that jeans and sweat shirt mom*hangs head* : on my days off. Otherwise I drop Pookah off in my way to work so I look pretty descent!
    I am not surprised at all that you used to model!
    I’m like Kalley, I’m a fashion lurker. I lurk on fashion blogs and posts to see what’s hot and new and cute!

    You were such a cute model! I hope you saved lots of pics to show your children! I like fashion but I am more in love with developing my personal style and helping others to do the same.

    i think i’m a bestie. i stalk fashion blogs and love to see what others are wearing; but here’s my excuse, because i work from home i’m not as motivated every day to figure out my outfits, but of late i’m making a better effort because i know better.

    Lovahs! My blog was inspired by my love of fashion and beauty. My mom is a retired hairdresser so I grew up in a beauty salon. I didn’t want to lose my style after having babies and I know a lot of women struggle with that too.

    BTW I love those two sweatshirts you got! Where’d you get them?

    definitely besties — not a lovah because lovas can be temporary–besties are down for life!! I love that pic of you! SMOKING!!

    I loved reading your write-up. I too see mom’s in workout clothes at drop off and pick up although I am not sure if they actually work out in them. I too love to dress up (hence we blog right?) but the #1 person I dress up for is myself. On rare occasion when I don’t dress up I feel down all day. It really effects my mood.
    Loved your modeling photo.

    Look at you! Gorgeous! Mine is an on-again-off-again kinda relationship with fashion. I’m definitely not all in, but I have my moments! I’d love to see some OOTD posts. Go for it!

    Workers compensation funding or Workmans comp loan,

    pursue their Workmens compensation claim or third party liability lawsuit cases to be able
    to receive the maximum settlements they deserve. If the payments come in default, there is incredibly little chance how the estate will likely be held liable.
    No matter how hard you attempt, it doesn’t matter how good you’re in financial planning,
