Sunday: After I left the house I realized that my outfit makes me look as if I’m going hunting. You know, camoflauge so the animals that you are hunting can’t see you and the neon orange, so that the other hunters will see you! Well, maybe not the kind of hunting that you usually think of, but more like maybe bargain hunting for some awesome shopping deals! Well, I’m not doing either, but just saying. Anyway, I love these pants for a couple of reasons. One is that they are slouchy and comfy, just the way I like a pair of pants to fit. The other is the gold spikes that outline the pockets takes the camo from being too casual to more chic and edgy. The orange skully adds just the right pop of color to an all neutral outfit. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and a great weekend! God Bless!

Sunday: So this is my all black ensemble (with animal print accessories to make it less boring!) for my church duties today. If you remember my post (my tantrum, lol!) from last Sunday, I can now tell you that I think I resolved my problem. Last night I pulled out every black piece that I owned (not all, but most of what I could get my hands on). I started putting several outfits together that would be appropriate for when I was on Visual Arts duty at church. It actually went better than expected! I mean, it only took me about 2 hours to pull everything, style it and try it on. I know that sounds like a lot but all black is rather boring to me and I just needed to put together some outfits so that I am ready when the time comes. So when those days come, all I need to do is grab one of those outfits, accessorize it and go! Like I said before, jackets can be a great finishing piece to any outfit by helping it to look more interesting. So, with that being said, I will be wearing some style of black jacket with every one of those outfits! Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Sunday: Ok, remember how I said that I am on the Visual Arts Team at church and we have to wear all black? Well, today was my day to do photos and this is my all black ensemble that I put together. OMG! Can I just tell you that I was sooo frustrated last night trying to put together an all black outfit that I felt comfortable in! When I say comfortable, I’m not talking physically comfortable but mentally/emotionally comfy in. By that I mean that I am not an all black type of girl. Don’t get me wrong, I do like when I see some women or men in all all black. It actually looks very chic to me. But it’s just not for me. Everything that I tried on was just not working for me. I can really say that I can sympathize with the women who say that they just don’t feel good when they get dressed sometimes. That’s exactly how I felt in those all black outfits. And because I wasn’t going to be disobedient, I just had to find something that would work. I know, a little color or something wouldn’t be blatantly disrespectful, but I do try to wear something to fade into the background as to not draw attention to myself as I am trying to inconspicuously take photos. But anyways, after about an hour or so, I decided that I could just wear a black jacket over my black bottoms. The details of the jacket and my pewter shooties take away the boringness of a colorless and patternless outfit. And of course, accessories can’t hurt either! How do you feel about wearing all black? Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Saturday: Thought I would rock a little 90′s grunge look. The “grunge” look consisted mainly of a plaid button down shirt and jeans. We wore everything a bit oversized and big in the 1990′s. So this plaid shirt is an old shirt that I picked up from the men’s department several years ago. You already know how I love to wear men’s clothes. They are just cut differently than women’s and give me that slouchy, baggy feel/look that I like. I’m gonna keep this one short so I’m out for now. God Bless!
