Deep Blue Sea

As I mentioned in an earlier post, my 3 year wedding anniversary was this week and the hubby and I spent the day at the Aquarium.  A smorgasbord of beautiful scenery!  My camera was going wild!

My goal in my attire was to be comfortable, but still look hot for my husband!  A cotton military dress with my extremely comfortable oxfords fit the bill!  A fringed shoulder bag was light enough to carry throughout the day, but big enough to carry all the necessary things a girl needs (Compact, lipgloss, hand sanitizer, tissues...and the list goes on and on!).  A woman's purse is like a black hole!  You never know what you might find in there!

There were so many interesting things at the Aquarium, but coolest by far was the shark exhibit.  My husband, being a huge fan of Shark Week and just sharks in general, was like a little kid in a candy store.

I am quite smitten over sunsets and the ocean!  I have taken up a new interest in photography and have been seeing the world through a camera lens!  Here is a beautiful photo I thought I would share with you.  A walk by the shore watching the sunset was truly a romantic setting and the end to a wonderful day!

Just Me and My Ray Bans

<script type="text/javascript"></script>

I’ve found that as I get older, the level of comfort I require in my attire is much higher.  Sometimes you just want to be in comfortable flat shoes instead of a heel!  I would love have legs like the models in magazines.  Their legs look a mile long even in flats!  But lets get real.  I am five foot one, and have short legs.  It is incredibly difficult for me to look cute or feel sexy in a flat shoe!  Let’s face it ladies...as soon as we put on those stilettos, our sexy factor jumps up!  There is something about a high heel that just makes you strut!  It is almost impossible not to!

Nevertheless, I am absolutely DIGGING (Are people still saying that? Probably not. Ha) these oxfords!  Do you DIG them too?  They are a little bit odd and old man like (why does everything I wear look old man-ish?), but I adore them anyway!  The chunky heel adds a bit of height to short, little me, and they are super comfortable!

Two words: Ray...Ban...music to my ears!  I love my Ray Bans!  They make me feel cool.

It felt kind of strange taking a picture of my derriere (buttocks, in case you didn't know) but I assure you, it was only to show you the awesome studs on the pockets of my jeans!  I love little details on clothing!

Piled on my arm with a couple of bracelets, there is a watch, which is something out of the norm for me.  I hate wearing watches because someone ALWAYS asks me the time.  I will then proceed to stand there in awkward silence as I try to count the lines on my watch.  It is beyond ridiculous!  Don't get me wrong, I can tell time.  It's just that when the numbers aren't marked, it takes me a little longer than it should!  Maybe a digital watch would better suffice.  The one I'm wearing actually doesn't even work.  It's just for cuteness purposes!  Hey, give me a break...it matches my shoes!

My three pairs of oxfords! I will be wearing these a lot the rest of the summer, throughout fall and winter! They are so comfortable and versatile. Don't they look so happy?

The Fedora Project Continues...

They say that opposites attract in relationships, but how about clothing?  Definitely!  This outfit is where punk and prissy meet! 

I don't always have an agenda or specific item I am searching for when hitting the stores, but this time I did!  I was on the hunt for the girliest dress that existed.  Pink, flowers, ruffles... can't get more feminine than that!  Scored this dress on the sale rack for only $5.00!  To offset the soft, feminine nature of the dress I added a black fedora and my new oxfords!  These are not the oxfords I purchased online (See: Dorky Yet So Adorable!), I actually found them at Ross for $12.  I am now obsessed with oxfords...they are sooo comfortable!  There are currently three pairs happily sitting in my closet and they are just too cute for words!  The jewelry I kept simple, although not in my nature, this outfit is pretty busy already.  Just a simple silver chain necklace...I dare not leave my neck completely bare!

 


This studded belt I've had in my collection for some time, but have never worn it.  Don't you hate when you buy something and when you get home you realize "I have absolutely nothing to wear with this!"  OR  even worse...you don't even like what you bought anymore!  This is often because us women cannot resist one word...SALE!  Due to the fact that I am a repeat offender of buying dumb things that are on sale, I have a rule.  Don't buy it if you wouldn't pay full price for it!  It really works, and saves me from wasting money or having to return things (which I hate doing!).

So I challenge you...use your inner Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde this week and wear an outfit that totally contradicts itself!  Send me your pics if you like!

Dorky Yet So Adorable!

July 24, 2010 11:31 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

I am so in love with oxfords right now. Whenever I see a girl wearing them, it always looks so incredibly stylish! I just don’t know if I can pull them off! Hey, don’t knock it till you’ve tried it, right? I found a couple of inexpensive alternatives, so if you like this trend…Go for it! The difficult task at hand will be finding an outfit that balances the masculine look of the shoe. Something soft and girly! You don’t want to look too manly! I will be giving in to my need for trying every trend once and ordering a pair for myself today! But which ones you ask? You’ll find out soon enough!
