Dearest fair maidens, dashing divas and glamorous gals,
How are you? Feeling fab I hope :-)
Today was the most wonderfully perfect day! The weather in the Chi wasn't too hot nor was it too cool, the sun shone just right and I spent some QT with my daughter and one of her besties. Another special thing about today is the fact that my daughter and I collaborated (somewhat) on my outfit today and then she and her friend played photographer for me, lol. This is my first true outfit of the day blog and I'm kind of excited to share :-D
Before I get into what I wore, I'd like to point out that I am still trying to find my voice when it come to my personal style. Typically, I dress "safe". By that I mean, I stay away from bright colors and patterns, my style usually lacks any kind of flair and I prefer to keep under the radar. But I am so very tired of safe, I'm so tired of all neutral/black/white/primary colors everything. I want to add some boldness to my repertoire! I want to live out louder! And in the spirit of this desire, I totally went against my nature and wore something that is very not me: Tie Dye. Yikes!
Tie dye is as loud, funky and chaotic as one can get and that's why I included it in today's outfit. So without further ado, I present me tied, dyed and everything BUT laid to the side!
