School Girl Chic

Ralph Lauren Blazer via Marshall's (Kinda in love with it)
Limited Khakis (hand me down from my homie Taneca!)
Shirt from Target (I think it's really a "beach cover up" but I love the length and how thin it is)
Scarf/Marc Fisher Shoes via Marshall's
Hat from Urban Outfitters...I think...it's so old
The outfit looks much better in person...the details on the back of the jacket make me want to stroke it while singing Killing Me Softly in Spanish to it.

I very much felt like a cross between a school girl/school boy in this outfit...but I liked it:)
(These are actually wide legged Khaki's but "old school" rolled them up like I did in middle school! I'm not a fan of light colored pants but I so didn't care today)

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I've been busy losing weight...and by losing weight, I mean puking my guts out from a stomach virus or a touch of food poisoning...not good! This was my first attempt all week to get dressed in a decent way. Slowly getting my energy back so today, just pictures...no witty stories:)

.....Oh wait...I was reading this great article (when I wasn't in an Imodium AD induced coma) on bloggers in the current issue of Vogue and it mentioned the "target" audience for most successful bloggers. So here is what I assume all of my readers/lurkers/followers have in common...

1. They YOU eat real food.

2. You have to check your bank account atleast once a month. Let me explain this one. I gage how wealthy people are by if I think they check their bank accounts to see where every penny goes. For example...Oprah doesn't HAVE to check her account. The rapper Coolio (yes, exactly)...checks his account on his Cricket phone! LOL

3. You agree that my afro puff, thick hips, witty banter and worship of heels and pencil skirts make me a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize for Financially Challenged, Big Dreaming Bloggers!

4. You too think about how much weight you might lose when you are sick from stomach viruses/food poisoning.

5. You giggle atleast once while reading a post of mine or atleast nod your head and said..."That girl is working it".

I digress. This was supposed to be just pictures:)

Hope you are feeling better! Love the look, and I too bought a "beach coverup" at Target (from the clearance rack, of course!) that I wear all the time as a basic black skirt. Oh, and I check my bank account at least once a week.
