Red and Ruffles

Red and Ruffles
{What I’m Wearing: Blouse: Beacon’s Closet; Pants: H&M (thrifted); Heels: Zara (eBay); Watch: Michael Kors}

I’m not usually a huge fan of ruffles.  They remind me of pirates.

For some reason though I couldn’t help myself from purchasing this blouse when I found it at Beacon’s Closet.  I think it was the stripes.  Actually, I take that back I know it was the stripes.

As you may or may not know, I seem to have serious addiction issues with stripes, leopard and neon yellow.  I’m trying to figure out an outfit that includes all three for IFBCon and LuckyFABB in a few weeks.  Okay, not really but most likely I will be wearing at least two of those items in any given outfit seen around NYC during Fashion Week, and it won’t necessarily be a conscious decision.

So if you spot a girl with big curly hair wearing any of those things, be sure to say hi!

This past Saturday I crossed two very overdue tasks off my to-do list. First was take my Mom out for Mother’s Day (being she was away on vacation over the actual holiday). Second was to finally see the Hunger Games movie, preferably while still playing in theaters.

Coincidentally my Mom wanted to see the movie as well, so I took her for a belated Mother’s Day movie screening and lunch. By the time she was back from vacation and me back from work trips, the only theater still playing it was one out on Long Island I used to frequent while I was in High School (I grew up out there). Worked out perfect since my Mom didn’t need to travel far to meet me.

This is what I wore. I wanted to be comfy in the theater and you can’t get more comfy than a pair of palazzos. It’s the perfect alternative to leggings when it’s hot out. I received a lot of compliments on them while out and about, which almost made up for me being a total spaz and tripping on them several times throughout the day.

Last week was one of those weeks were I was seeing red my entire time in the office.   Actually, this week has been pretty much the same.  The day I had worn this ironically was the worst day. I’ve been working through major payment issues with one of my vendors that affects all my customers, and it’s been ridiculously stressful trying to get it all sorted out.  That plus having an employee quit along with about 2-3 staff members on vacation next week, and my stress level is near through the roof.

This week, especially today I’m dealing much better with the stress.  Tonight I have “sweaty beers” with my gym girl friends after spin class (where immediately following class we hit up the local bar), which I’m looking forward to and it’s getting me through the day.  I’m also making it a point to hit up the gym, do some yoga and meditate daily to get rid of some of my nervous energy so I can at least sleep soundly.  We’ll see how it goes the rest of this week, it can’t get much worse.

This week my main blogging goal is to finally finish my 30 for 30 Summer Challenge posts.  It’s getting ridiculous now, I finished the challenge over the summer and here it is fall now and I still don’t have them all up.  So consider my posting schedule out the window until I get this done, fo’ real.

Everyone have a fun week!

I actually wore this last Monday. For the life of me I can’t remember what the hell I did last Monday.  Did I have a management meeting that day?  I’m so far behind on my posting it’s not funny.  I’ve gotta get with the times.

Are you participating in the 30 for 30?  If so are you having a tough time getting your photos up in a timely manner as well?
