Taking Control

Dinner outfit Part Deux. Another night, another tunic-shirt from Ann Taylor on Final Sale. I wish I could be more original for y’all this year, but I feel like I’ve been beating the wrap-sweater trend dead lately, and tunics for dinners like these allow you the illusion of “dressing up” while maintaining comfort. Apparently this is the point in the show where I decided having feet was an acceptable look – the ruffled flats are actually from Target (Mossimo) and are surprisingly comfortable. Highly recommend.

I was going to wear a pencil skirt with a cardigan, but to be totally honest, post-tailoring it was a bit tight, and I realized that we were going to the Sushi Buffet for lunch. Translation: An eatin’ dress was needed. This is actually my favorite dress (Ann Taylor LOFT, Fall 2008) and it was on the bench for the last four months while I waited for the right time to take it to the tailor. I did standard accessories including some blingin’ earrings that I coordinated with Marcus’ mother and little cousins. We were in a VERY sparkly space this morning.

All of that being said, life is officially back to “normal,” whatever that means.  What “normal” includes  = not traveling, no festive holiday/birthday/we’re not in our hometown-induced eating occasions that come in short sequence, LOTS of relaxing.  AKA, taking control of my life.

Go live and love, friends!
