A Year in Georgia

It’s been a year since I’ve packed up a few things and moved out here to Georgia. If I say life was great I would not be speaking the truth. Transitioning from one state to another is not the easiest thing. Feeling the disconnect from the life one has lived for their entire life is a constant feeling, at least it has been for me so far.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Georgia and have no plans of moving back to New York, but change is very difficult. The area I live in (Lawrenceville) is different, different culture, different lifestyle, just different. It’s not a good or bad different, just a different to get accustomed to.

Making friends, finding a job, becoming acquainted it is all a work in progress. I miss my set of Friends. Making good friends is hard to do as I mentioned in a previous blog post Here. There are times i feel nostalgia when thinking about New York and I begin to miss simply hanging out with friends.

Finding solid ground as far as work has been a challenge for me. As much as I love what I do I think I will have to take my self back in the  public school system.  I am a preschool teacher and it is different ( to say the least) out here in my experience.

All in all if you’re anything like me. Change is hard. As hard as it is, making this move was one of the best decisions I have made and although it is indeed hard it was necessary and I do not regret it.

Spring Has Sprung

FINALLY, it seems spring has decided to show it’s face and I couldn’t be happier. We have had some peek days and then BAM the cold would resurface but it seems that Spring may be here to stay. So what is a girl to do when the weather breaks and it is beautiful out?

Dress Up!

On this day I decided to show some legs but didn’t want to overdo it since it is only spring. Spring in NYC is exactly that. I knew I would be out until the evening so I threw on some layers. Ive never worn these shoes and I was determined to let my feet get some air so I threw them on. I will say this. These shoes are cute and I will wear them again but they are not the best for walking around NYC. they are good for the car and short distances. I received tons of compliments on them so they are definitely a show stopper, as long as the show is close by.

Vintage Jacket and Paper Bag Pants

As I was looking through one of my coat closets I came upon a Jacket I purchased from a vintage thrift store but never wore ( this happens more times then I like). I took the jacket out and started thinking about what I could pair it with. I then went into my regular closet and found a pair of pants I haven’t worn un a while and figured I would pair it with the jacket.

On this day My hair was acting crazy, so i threw it in my definition of a side ponytail. My allergies to make a guest apperence but the show must go on. I paired the jacket and pants with a tee I’ve worn many times before and a pair of my new favorite pumps. Image13

Denim And Boots

The best thing about denim is that it can be worn all year long. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. It is one of those materials that transcends through time. I don’t think I will every get tired of denim. The last time I wore this particular denim piece I wore it as a top. On this day I wanted to show some legs and rock these high lace up boots.

Here is what I wore:

Mom and Fashion

Last week my son came home to visit for spring break. His last break we did not get to spend much time together, but this time around we made sure to pick a day to hang out. Being a mom of a young man picking out what you wear can be stressful. While I enjoy fashion I didn’t want to over do it, but I also wanted to be comfortable. Of course before leaving the house I had to get his stamp of approval. He didn’t like my shirt but gave me the OK. Our day out was enjoyable. We went see the movie Race ( it was amazing I suggest everyone go see it), after the movie we went to catch a bite to each. At this moment we caught up on what was going on in both of our lives.

Stairway To Fashion

Sometimes a woman wants to just throw on a dress, put on some makeup, fix up her hair and feel that extra dose of sexy. This dress defiantly helped me feel extra sexy. I feared wearing this dress at first because of the deep V in front of the dress, but once I tried it on I was in love. This little black dress is not for the faint of hearts. you have to be bold and daring to rock this. While this dress is revealing it is comfortable to wear and flattering on many body types.

Stripes and Yellow

Stripes can often be a tricky pattern. Sometimes strips can make you appear bigger than you are, sometimes strips can show the imperfection you may want to hide or sometimes they can just be flat out unflattering. Rocking this two pice set was an obstacle for me.  I wanted to wear this two piece on my BoyFriends birthday and had always planned it in my head. When I tried it on I did not like it at all, I decided to wear it anyway. To take away from how unflattering it made me I paired it with shoes that were louder that the stripes. I decided on yellow because it paired with the stripes nicely.

 

 

Unfortunately because of my necklace there was a harsh glare.

Here is what I wore.

Fringe Is In

Brunch is such the norm. Going to brunch on a Saturday or Sunday has become one of my favorite things to do. This day I had 10 minutes to get dressed. I had no idea what I was going to wear so within those 10 minutes I had to figure that out as well. My way of doing things specifically when I am in a rush is to work around my shoes. Once I picked out the shoes I was going to wear the rest came Easy. On a beautiful day in New York, I decided to throw on a thrifted sweater and a faux leather fringe skirt.
