From the Back...
Hello again! Here's a little somethin'-somethin' I wore to work last week...I have to say it's an outfit that seems to work better in real life than it does on the not-so-silver screen. Here it looks a little rumpled, but I got 3 compliments from separate people so it can't be that bad...right? Haha, whatever. I still like it!

Now, you might be looking at this pic and thinking, "what's going on with the back, there?" If you look to the left you can see it even better. Well, what's going on is that when I ordered this top from ASOS Curve, it looked like it hit the model mid-thigh. On me, it is a dress. Literally. I could belt it and wear it as a dress. I realize I'm no giant, but come on! The picture is COMPLETELY misleading. Lucky for ASOS Curve though, I love the top anyway. It's made out of a nice thin cotton (nude undergarments are a must!) which was perfect for the hot muggy day we were having when these photos were taken. I kind of like the tail sticking out...my mom wasn't so sure, haha. Looking at these pics now it almost looks like I'm wearing an apron over a dress. I might pin the tail of the shirt up in the future so it doesn't show...or I might not. HAHA, I'm a Rebel!!!

The skirt is also from ASOS Curve and I love it. I don't know why it took me so long to get on the black a-line skirt wagon, but I'm on it to stay from now on! It's so comfy and versatile and it has pockets (!!!). I anticipate wearing it many more times to come. In fact, I'm wearing it right now as I speak/type! :P

The necklace is amazeballs. I love snakes, so whenever I see jewelry which snakes I have to have it! Plus, when I saw it was called the "Medusa" necklace, it sealed the deal for me. I LOVE Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythology (have since I was a wee lass), so this necklace has a special place in my heat/wardrobe. 

The shoes are super comfy, which is an absolute must for me now that I have to stand for hours at a time for work. And as weird as it sounds, I didn't even realize how perfect the stripe on the back of the shoe coordinated with the top and the outfit as a whole. I swear I didn't plan that!

Also, so you all know, I have decided to only post on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays...that still seems like a lot, but I'm trying to cut back. I don't want to overwhelm you all with too much information and I don't want to burn myself out too quickly. Plus letting posts sit might help drive up traffic to my site (*HINT HINT*). Oh yeah, I'm also thinking of buying a dot com domain name soon. I will make sure to give at least 2 weeks notice when I make the final decision to move. Well, that's all I got for now. Have a lovely day, lovelies!
