I AM NOT SORRY…. for being me

I AM NOT SORRY… for being me. What does that mean you ask?

I am not sorry for:

  • Being the best Mom that I know how to be; having open and honest communication with my son
  • Being a hopeless romantic; loving with my entire heart and putting my all into my relationsship
  • Working hard to have the things that we need and want but not always being in love with having to go to work
  • Standing up for the things that I believe are correct
  • Wanting a new “life experience” & hoping to move to the West Coast
  • Loving my family but knowing that it is time to “live” for me
  • For doing 90% of my shopping at thrift stores and online boutiques & closet sales –  I just cannot seem to want to pay full price for clothing and accessories. You just get so  much more for your money
  • For being ME – I have come to love myself which allows me to love unconditionally

Tonight I had a movie date with my son to see Penguins of Madagascar. I wanted to be comfortable and relaxed so I opted for a graphic sweatshirt & jeans with the black jacket and silver scarf. The movie was great. Below are options on styling the outfit for a easy, breezy early evening outing.

Steppin out Style: Curvy & Twisted’

Today I stepped out to The Shopaholic Suite event that was hosted by Kim of  Curvy CEO in Silver Spring, MD. The event was amazing – you do not know what you missed out on, if you were not there! Not only did I get to find some statement pieces for my wardrobe, but I met some really amazing people – More about the event in the next post.

Since I was stepping out to a shopping event, I wanted to be super comfortable so I chose to be Curvy & Twisted:

Office Style: Smokin Hot AFRO

My friend and collegue Cyrstal really knows how to incorporate her afro into her office style.

She is gorgeous and I definitley have afro envy!  Crystal always dresses impeccably and knows how to accessorize her looks. With the weather getting cooler putting a long colorful jacket over a simple black dress is a great way to update your look for the fall.

The thing that I love most about her is that she is not afraid to try different styles with her natural hair. She will definitely be featured on Naturally Curvaceous again!
