Black Wings...

If you live in the Northeast, you, too have been experiencing almost torrential rains for over a week.  It is difficult to be cute in this kind of weather, but this blog isn't about being cute all the time. It's about being real.  So here is an outfit I wore yesterday to go teach a workshop to a group of girls.  The weather was cool, so I grabbed my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans.  These were thrifted a couple of years ago and they are actual men jeans.  No DIY here, they came like this. Perfect from the day I bought them.  I decided to pair them with this top from ASOS.  They have tons of this shirt style on the site, in a variety of colors and prints, but I think the black is the sleekest.  The hi-low trend is nothing new, but as I have said before, I usually try a trend several years after it is over. LOL Anywho, I threw on this great "silver" necklace that I purchased from Ashley Stewart for practically nothing, and this was my ensemble for the day. Easy, breezy, comfortable, and appropriate for the work at hand.

Sidenote: I am so glad that people have stopped sleeping on Ashley Stewart!  They were named plus-sized fashion retailer of the year at Full-Figured Fashion Week.  Admittedly, they are not my go-to for clothes, but they have some nice pieces.  And they keep the trendy offerings coming season after season for a reasonable price.  But their jewelry offerings can not be touched.  I see many straight size women in the store getting necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings.  So, shout-out to Ashley Stewart.
