93 Days of Summer: Who Says Lace is Only For Undergarments?

I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty beat up in this picture. From the start of the blog, I mentioned it was and is a lifestyle blog–meaning everything is genuine, hoping to share thoughts with others and laugh a little more. All to say, from afar you see a simple outfit, just two colors, and a simple ponytail. Come a little closer and you start seeing the pieces of the puzzle–a lace blouse, high-waisted zipper shorts, casual sandal heels, and as always, earrings. Then you realize that only my big toe on each foot has faded turquoise nail polish (yes, as in I have not had a pedicure in like 6 decades), bruises on my right knee, calves, and upper part of my left leg—because I obviously do not know how to gracefully fall out of a couple pirouettes beforeĀ a struggling leap to somehow roll onto the floor in dance class. Even more, my hair had just come out of a bun from ballet class earlier that morning, so it was frizzy and fabulously, not fabulously curly. My hands are wet because I just washed my hands from picking up my dog’s urine that he kindly left at the entrance of the door. Great life. But…an active life. A lifestyle I try to continue sharing.

YOU BE YOU.

93 Days of Summer: My Turquoise Heels

YOU BE YOU

Yes, that’s mud on my heels, worn out, but with many memories. My lifestyle is active, and I actually walk, walking the streets of Mexico, Florida, and Vienna with these Steve Madden Turquoise heels, which I got half-off.

I found these babies as I was walking down the magnificent streets of what seems like gold to me at Northpark on a cold, wintery day that only demanded a day of shopping inside the cozy, welcoming walls of the glorious Dallas mall, the mall I visited on a monthly basis when I was growing up in Tyler, Texas.

All eyes on me, ok…well, I mean all the mannequin eyes on me, greeting me, and telling me to walk in the store to see the wonderful views, including views of price tags cut in half, displayed scarves lined in different colors on hangers, bikinis put up on mannequins for visitors to acknowledge summer is coming, so save up your bank accounts and go to the gym because you’ll be back in a couple months.

As for the blouse from Zara, well I walked in to get a simple white button down for an event, and at the checkout line, as I have studied in my MBA courses from the past, the typical impulse buy…that was me, so I came out of the store with a white shirt, just a tad bit different, with a vest cover look and bow-tied sleeves ending in foldable cuffs.

Eh, and as for the skirt I got in Mexico. I don’t really fall for patterns, but sometimes you just find them in your closet. It just happens.

Thanks for reading this boring post, but I had to describe why I wore this outfit to watch the ballet performance at the Latino Cultural Center. Fun night with my favorite heels.

All to say, think about where the shoes you have on right now have been and think about the memories.

YOU BE YOU.
