Surprise in the Back

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all are doing lovely and feeling great! I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago when I went to go visit my parents in the Poconos. For some reason I always dress up whenever I go see them lol. I don't know why I do, but I guess its because I want to look good when I see my parents since I don't see them that often. Hmm now that I think about it...I just like dressing up lol. We should always try to look our best wherever we go because we never know who's looking at us ;).

 Anywho, the "shirt" is really a dress. I ordered it online a couple of months ago from Forever 21 and when I got it, it was a tad bit too tight across my hips. I didn't feel like exchanging it, so I will be rocking it as a shirt from now on. Gotta learn how to see the versatility in some of our clothing.






You might remember the shoes from this post. I love the white partition of the shoe...its such a cute and unexpected surprise in the back.

    You're right...looking good is essential. You don't know who you'll meet on your way out...lol! :)

  6. I agree that we should dress up, no matter where we go. I did veer off from this about two weeks ago. We ran out of ketchup and I am someone who refuses to eat fries without ketchup. I didn't want my fries to be cold so I just took off and ran to the store in my pajama pants. =/
    Thankfully I didn't see someone I knew but I try to dress well. Sometimes my philosophy is to dress as if I'm going to see a future boss and sometimes it's just to dress well for a 21 year old college student.

    This is such a cute outfit. <3 the top and the heels. I like that you made the best out of the dress situation. I might try making a dress into a top should a dress not work out for me.

    I read your bio and I think I can learn a lot from you. I'll be starting grad school fairly soon so I want to dress well on a grad student budget.

    1. Lol girl I dont hold up to always looking my best either. One time I ran out of the house in my pajamas to move my car for alternate side of the street parking lol. My uncle gave me the craziest side eye because of it. I love your philosophy. Some people make connections just based on the way they are dressed, thats why I think its important to look good or TRY to look your best .

      Thanks for the compliments on the outfit! And yes girl please keep stopping by. I never spend a boatload of money on clothes. I'd rather invest money into my future.
