Memo 068: Overalls for Dinner

To: All
From: Me
Date: June 27, 2013
Subject:  Overall, the overalls are back in...

Yes, I got sucked into this overall trend. One day within 24 hours, I had no less than 43 people (ok, it was only like three people) ask me where to get a cute pair of overalls. Overalls? Really?! My mind immediately transported me back into the 90s. At some point during the 90s, I was ten and owned a pair of overalls. 

Listen, I am not trying to look ten! So, I bought these overall shorts with the intent of still looking like a grown up. I think I achieved it. 

I present overalls that you could rock to dinner!

Memo 067: Home is Where the Heart (and My Furniture) Is...

To: All
From: Me
Date: June 25, 2013
Subject:  Home Sweet Home

Two Things: Number one, I moved. Number two, moving sucks!

Now, that that is out of the way. There are a couple of life lessons that I have learned from this moving "experience":
  1. Sometimes you have to leave something that you love in order to fully appreciate it. If you're lucky, you get the opportunity to get it back.
  2. There are only a few times in life where you get a do-over, use it wisely.
  3. Once you let someone into something that you value (heart, home, etc.), you're extremely fortunate if they leave it better than the way they found it.

Memo 066: Peek-A-Boo, I See You!

To: All
From: Me
Date: June 6, 2013
Subject: A Lace Bra and Gold Accents 

When the Peter Pan collars first made their way into the fashion scene a season or two ago, I was not all that thrilled about them. I mean I wore Peter Pan collared shirts with my catholic school uniform. Trust me, it was completely unsexy.

But I am 100% in love with the gold Peter Pan collared necklace worn in this look. Paired with the gold accents in the blazer, clutch and shoes; it brings the entire look together.

It dawned on me that I'm practically fully covered. Well, except for my peek-a-boo lace top paired with a navy blue lace bra. This is a great way to add a little sexy without looking overexposed.

Memo 065: All Summer Long

To: All
From: Me
Date: June 4, 2013
Subject: Turbantastic!

So, remember how I said that I was wearing turbans all summer?

Well, that's definitely happening.

I'm in the midst of some very serious hair confusion. It is currently 1/6 natural (like 2 or so inches beyond new growth). Some days I want to color it, cut it off, braid it up, grow it out or add a little extra. All I do know is that I'm ready for a change. Coupled with the fact that it needs to be able to handle a 4 - 5 day workout schedule, I'm not exactly sure which change to make at this moment.

So, until then, I'll put a turban on it!
