Last weekend my husband and I headed to a friend’s house for a dinner party. It was a rainy and gloomy evening so I wanted to brighten the mood with a fun outfit. What could be more fun than a polka dot peplum top and red skinny jeans? I must admit that I am very self conscious about by thighs and it takes courage for me to wear anything other than dark pants. These James jeans are remarkably comfortable and somewhat slimming. A trick I use to distract from my bottom half is to really dress up my top half. The peplum top gives the elusion of a smaller waist and the statement necklace draws the eye up towards my face. My mother gave me this cute little Talbots clutch a while ago and I loved how the stripes mixed well with the polka dots. Lastly, a nice stiletto heel makes the legs appear longer and me appear taller! I hope these little tips can help you when piecing an outfit together.
I want to know who turned off the summer weather switch in Atlanta and demand to know when they are going to turn it back on!!! It only reached a high of 63 degrees on Friday which put a wrench in my cute summer outfit ideas. You can’t go wrong with light layering so I paired a soft camo tee with a blazer and boyfriend jeans. I’ve always loved the combination of camouflage and pink. It’s weird, I know, but I love the thought of pairing such a feminine color with a pattern associated with ultimate masculinity.
I just love this Forever 21 necklace. It looks a lot more expensive than it is and adds great sparkle to any outfit.
Here I am spotted in front of Chick-a-Biddy. This is a restaurant chain that just made it’s way to Atlanta. I had heard good things about it and was eager to try it out. I glanced at the menu ahead of time and thought I was going to go with the black bean quinoa burger. I had a change of heart when I arrived and the savory smell of chicken tickled my nose. I ended up with the chicken tenders served with a wasabi-honey dipping sauce and a watermelon-feta-mint side salad. Let’s just say I was not disappointed!
