Busy Bee

(Banana Republic Tuxedo shirt, Anthropologie Dress, Kate Spade Shoes, Thrifted Scarf)

Today, I kinda felt important. I had places to go and people meet...which is rare if you know me in real life. I have a friend, let's call her the Puerto Rican princess (she makes me call her that:), who ALWAYS has somewhere to go! Always. I call her a soccer mom although she has no bambinos but she's always running here and there. Me...not so much. Work, home, grocery store, mail box...yeah...then work again.
Today, I...

1. Went to church
2. Cooked a kick a$$ Chicken Parmesan
3. Took the best nap that almost made me miss #4!
4. Met a reader of my blog who turned out to be the Don King of Ideas! She was so inspirational and motivating, I walked out of the Dessert Gallery singing the Reading Rainbow song "I Cannnn Do Anythiiiing...Take a look, it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!" (I went too far with the song but I know you remember that show!)
Thank you Ashley...I programmed your number in my cell so that means I'm no longer a friend in just your head!)
5. Celebrated my homie's bday with Sushi and Cake! Happy bday Arianne!
6. Hung out with my bestie/dude!
7. Accomplished a new scarf updo:)
8. Found a new way to wear this old dress.

(I was trying to show how I tied the scarf to do an updo..you can't really tell though)

This is what I wore to church. It's a tulip style dress I copped from H&M this summer.
Jessica Simpson Shoes/ Thrifted Blazer

This look from Style Sample is what inspired my retro look today. Click here:)
Juanette from Fashionnette-work reminded me to shop in my own closet! Thanks!
How did I do?

Lookin good! That dress is so pretty and flattering...love the button down over it, especially with your hair put up like that! It's like a funky ladylike vibe.
