The Caped Crusader

Who doesn’t love a cape! Wearing a cape instantly amps up any outfit, no matter what it is! You can throw on a cape with a sweatsuit and you instantly look pulled together! I own several capes. Most of them are outerwear pieces so this one is a bit different. I don’t think there’s anything too interesting about the overall look until the cape gets added. How do you feel about capes? Until the next time, God Bless!

Finally found these Levis ‘Wedgie Fit’ Jeans that 1st came to my attention almost a year ago. They were sold out everywhere which was fine with me because they were selling at a price that I was not willing to pay but would have bought them at a much lower rate. Styled them with this bike sweater that I picked up from the Mens’ Department during that additional off the sale price event along with this belt bag. I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to much your bag to your shoes or belt but I liked how the honey colored boots pop like the bag/belt. Do you believe you shoes need to match your belt or bag? God Bless!

Just some black and white. These Mod style patent booties was purchased last year. I always had them in the back of my mind but never pulled them out until now. I’m usually not the one to wear all black but I figured why not when I can use the white to pop. And yes, I have some giant holes in the thighs of my jeans that was not created by me but purchased this way. Some may wonder why would one pay money to have such holes in their jeans, well, because it’s easier to buy them that way then to make them yourself. As to not totally revealĀ  my upper thighs, I donned these fishnet stockings. Fishnets are trending right now but since I have been known to mostly do my own thing with fashion, I just dug these ones out of stockpile of hosiery, which also includes colored fishnet knee highs that I’ve had for a long time. Can you imagine a pair of colored fishnet knee highs? You probably can’t even imagine a pair of plain knee highs! Do they even still sell knee highs? Well, until next time, God Bless!

Hey everyone! I know I’ve been missing in action from the blog due to a case of laziness when it comes to booting up the laptop, uploading pics, editing through to find the keepers and then posting. But if you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m still around posting outfit pics. If you don’t already follow me, you can @1ststatestyle on IG. Anyway, I thought these knit shorts were really cute when I came across them. The problem was #1: it’s Winter time, #2: they’re pretty short and #3: I could save them to wear when it’s warmer outside but the problem with that is that they may just cause some sweating in unwanted areas! So, I decided to just do some quick photos of how I would style them and wear them to just lounge around the house when the temps outside are a bit chilly but the house is cozy and warm. They work well for me while I lounge around maybe reading a book, coloring in my adult coloring book, watching tv, sipping tea or just about anything! Well, I got some more pics to post. God Bless!

Mood was for something comfy to wear for a full day of activities with my job. We went out to celebrate Christmas. Our 1st stop was to do some outreach at a Nursing Home. Then we went to the Escape Room which are themed rooms where participants have to solve the mystery in order to gain the key “to leave the room”. It was very hard but so much fun! We had the most difficult room which in approximately 600 participants, only 2 have solved it and “got out of the room”. The day finished with dinner. This was the perfect outfit! Flats, leggings and a sweatshirt! Did you have/attend your company’s Christmas party? God Bless!
