Hello. I’m freezing.

The blog Substance AND Style is hosting a fun “Dress Up Friday” theme with a few other blogs. I was graciously invited to include my own outfit, so here it is. It may be below freezing outside, but I’m in heels!






Dress: Forever 21 (similar here)
Blazer: Macy’s
Necklace: Forever 21
Lips: MAC “Hang-Up”

This dress is short. I have no choice but to wear tights with it to spare the public. I paired it with my favorite (and warm) blazer that I picked up in the juniors section of Macy’s because I have age acceptance issues.

I love statement necklaces and I need more of them. I was always weary of having a chandelier around my neck, but now I see the appeal. You can pair them with a $5 dress you plucked off the clearance rack and KAPOW. You have a nice outfit to sit at home in. Just me? Just me.

Have a fancy Friday and thank you for reading!


  • Love that lipstick on you πŸ™‚

    • Thank you. It makes me feel like a total bad ass.

  • Lol if you want to sit at home looking wonderful no one has the right to complain!

    Lovely outfit – you certainly know how to wear weather appropriate clothing and layer them in a way that makes it smart, feminine and with a finish of ‘KAPOW’ – I like all the pieces separately and together. The blazer brings it all together and that necklace, wow!

    Thank you so much for participating in Fancy Friday – it’s been wonderful seeing the different perspectives from different ladies and their own personal styles. If you feel like doing it again on any Friday feel free to send me the link and I’ll feature it in my own post to help publicize πŸ™‚

    • Absolutely! I don’t get to dress up on a regular basis so expect more posts from me in the future. Thanks again!

  • Super cute! Love the colors, I’ve beeb into blue lately! Loved the bit about age acceptance issues, to true! I always start at the juniors section lol BTW, you have gorgeous hair!

    • Thank you! The juniors section always has the best stuff. Now if I’m 45 and still updating this blog wearing juniors clothes, feel free to call a specialist to set me straight.
