Toughly Ruffled

It's Trendy Tots Tuesday, today, and I usually post my outfit in the same post as Little S.', but the story behind TTT needed a post of its own and Little S. OWNED it. Crazy hair and all.
If you have a little one you'd like to share with us, be sure to head over to today's Trendy Tots Tuesday post and link up!

People, can you explain the weather? I know it's been a sore subject all over the blogosphere, lately. Freezing rain, lots of snow, negative temperatures, and then there's the whole everyone being sick and tired of hearing about the weather. Well, friends, it was 77 degrees here, yesterday, and when I left my house this morning, it was in the 30s. I know many of you are experiencing temperatures below 10 or even sub zero, but I was unprepared for this drastic change, today. I came to work without a coat, and I was much less than ecstatic while Husband was taking my outfit shots. Only two of them came out halfway the way I would have liked, but that's my fault. I was TOO COLD to smile.

FTR: the sausage effect  is due to the top of the skirt being oddly fitted and flaring out a lot at my natural waist. 
MY TIGHTS do not give me half -casing effect.
fucshia sweater: New York and Company
purple tank: Catalog Connection
olive ruffle skirt: Old Navy clearance (gift from Rochelle)
rubine tights: c/o We Love Colors
brown studded oxfords: Ross (gift from Rochelle)

I tried to smile for you guys. I really did. I just couldn't muster it up. So I just looked down, instead. 
How is it that on my way to work, Husband can find an old storefront with essentially the same colors as my outfit? I swear... And he didn't even pay attention to what I was wearing. He just said, "Let's take your picture in that little cove." And I said, "The one that looks like my outfit?" And he goes, "Oh, yeah. Cool." No big deal. He's just a genius. That's all.

If you read my post, yesterday, you'd know I'm embarking on yet ANOTHER weight loss journey. But this time, it's the real deal. I'll be posting stats, recipes and meal plans on our Fab Fashion Blogger Rockin' Weight Loss yahoo group! If you'd like to join, we'd LOVE to have you! Collette has shared her before and after photos and her success story. She'll be leading us through each of our own journeys to find our healthiest selves. 


  1. I am so in love with that fuchsia and olive mix! How fab is that skirt you are wearing? And I do recall you being frightened of colored tights? You wear them so well! I can't wait to try out some of your recipes.

  2. WOW! Compliments all over town! Thanks girl. I was feeling not so hot today.

  3. I am apart of the group on yahoo. I look forward to getting to know you, and building each other up. If you ever have any questions ask away. I know my weight loss journey is a long one. I am sure I have said this a billion times, and sorry if I had said it on your site before. But, Sparkpeople.com changed my life. It is free, has a nutrition tracker, fitness tracker, a great community, videos, health info, and has tons of health experts on it.

  4. I will not say anything about the great weather we've had. ;) And that spot looks so great with your outfit! I love your bright top and tights. Also, every time I see olive I remember how much I love it and how I wish I had more olive items.

  5. ohh i loooove your tights! looking good mama =)

  6. Very cute outfit! Love the ruffles and the colors!

  7. You have more colorful tights than anyone I know! Too cute! Hope you had a great day. I'm having a fun giveaway to celebrate my blog makeover! Make sure to enter before Friday if you haven't already! Kori xoxo


  8. Love that color on you, you look great :)

    I tried to join the group, but I had some problems with the Yahoo sign-in. I'll try again tomorrow...it's such a great idea!

  9. I really like how your skirt and sweater look together! No smile? It looks good anyway!


Just like Ke$ha (minus the craziness and whatnot), YOUR LOVE is my drug!
