Now? Well, now I'm wearing over sized men's sweats with "Navy" written down the leg and a grey sweater.
Over the last dozen years I've gone through a lot of size changes (been down to a 10 and up to an 18) and job changes. You can probably imagine that what I wore as an undergrad was slightly different than my wardrobe as a therapist. And, for more than the last five years I've been a stay at home mom. I've tried to keep a little sass in my wardrobe, but sometimes, like when I actually have someplace fun to go, I realize that I'm missing it.
Earlier this week Mama Loves Papa posted a response to a reader question about her celebrity style icon, if she had one. She posed the same question to me. I was stumped. Who do you think?
I like flowy items and structure. I love open necks, especially boat necks. Cowl necks are fun too! I love maxi dresses and flat front, straight leg pants. I'm a fan of rich colors like teal, purple, orange and blue - and yes, I combine them. Brown is my favorite neutral. Does that help at all? Can you name me a celebrity mentor to study up on style?

Well, if you still need a little help...I'm going shopping this weekend. I have a class this coming week that requires me to dress professionally. My sweats aren't going to cut it! I do have a few items that will work, but I can't wear them for four days straight. So, when I have four professional outfits put together I'll take pictures and post them. I know....exciting! Right?
But, in the meantime...throw some names my way of actresses and singers who wear relaxed clothing with a touch of sex appeal and a whole lot of comfort!
