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?
