OOTD – Crazy Commuters

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, we’re on the down stroke to the weekend!

Yesterday after work I stopped for gas, paid $3.67/gallon, getting just enough to get home or to a cheaper station. This morning it was $3.69! It’s times like these that I miss living in New York and taking public transportation. Delaware has DART Bus service but I would rather drive than risk being hit over the head with a gun for a bite of sandwich – don’t believe me…it happened on Monday, read the article here

Do you ever drive around burning gas looking for cheaper gas – crazy right!  If I did commute to work on public transportation this Merona tote would be perfect to carry.  It’s not as though I have a lot but if I did, it’s very roomy.  It could also be used an an overnight bag, what do you think?

Animal Print booties were purchased last year on clearance at Deb Shop and the pantsuit is from the back of the closet – the shoulder pads dates it.  Worthington scoop neck top was $4 from JC Penney and Merona tote was part of my shoe haul from Target.

OOTD – Pink Pantsuit

Good Monday Morning Friends, I hope you had a nice weekend and if you are a Raven’s fan – CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

We didn’t have a Super Bowl party but my son invited two of his buddies over to watch the game and they had a great time.  I made chicken wings, pizza and slow cooked barbecue meatballs which they ate well before half time!  We were all very excited to watch the Ravens win especially after the 30 minute blackout, which caused a lot of anxiety for the fans, even Twitter shut down for a short time.  Blue Ivy’s mom was on fiyah and I enjoyed her performance with Destiny Child but not all of this year’s commercials performed well. Once again, Dorito’s knocked it out of the park with the Goat and “Daddy Princesses; I also liked the Tide “stain”, eTrade baby and Budweiser commercials but missed the one with the Clydesdale horses. The “Go Daddy” ad was disgusting and Dodge Ram was disappointing because of the lack of diversity in their “God Made Farmers” commercial and if I hear that Gangum Style song used again I’ma scream!

I am not a football aficionado so I cannot comment on the actual game, only that I love Ray Rice because I grew up with his mother and aunt in New Rochelle, NY.   Back in the day I dated and almost married his great uncle, Kevin, but that was way before he was born and a story for another time…it’s just a distant memory now….

The game ended late and I didn’t prepare my clothes for the week so once again I hit the back of the closet and pulled out this pantsuit.

OOTD – Triple "S" Snow Day

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I took my car through the car wash yesterday only to wake up to fresh snow this morning.  It never seems to fail, the day after you wash your car it rains or in this case snows.  Oh well it could be worse, I took my time driving this morning and made it safely to work.

Today’s snow day outfit is another one of the brushed SUEDE pantsuits from the back of the closet, paired with a leopard print SCARF and brown SUEDE boots for an easy breezy triple “S” day.

OOTD – Out of the Closet

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve

How often do you venture into the back of your closet? Are you afraid of going back there…are you afraid of what you might find…or are you just afraid of getting lost never to be seen again? I very rarely look in the back of my closet, not because of it’s size but because that’s where I keep clothes that no longer fit but don’t want to get rid of…as if I’ll ever wear my Wedding Night nightgown again!  Unfortunately, included with those items are also others that wish they could see the light of day because they have been forgotten yet still fit.

Thanks to the avalanche in my closet I can now see clear to the back and guess what I saw….pantsuits….lots and lots of pantsuits, which were very popular in the mid-90’s.  At one time in Corporate America before there was a “Work From Home” program when you could wear sweats, jeans or pajamas, Casual Friday’s for women meant wearing pantsuits to the office and I had quite a few.   The one that I am wearing today was probably kept because of the unique buttons which is it’s best feature otherwise, it’s just a “plain Jane” pantsuit.

I think my son may have been a little upset with me this morning and took it out on my head which in most pics has been chopped.
