Venting in Black and White

Ah, where to start today…where to start?  If you are a personal friend on FB you may have seen me make mention of having the most disappointing of days yesterday.  Someone, who I thought was truly a friend…heard something about me..thought the worst of me…. When we finally spoke, I apologized about our misunderstanding from a really humble and honest place (I am a Libra, so if you tell me your side of things, I will always most likely understand).  This friend of over 4 years did not take accept that apology…..instead continued on…saying she is too trusting of people like me.  People like me?   Close to tears, I left the conversation.  Walked away.  I feel horrible about it.  I have lost a relationship and that is always hard.  I am taking solace in knowing that although I am totally flawed in many ways, at my core is a really good person who tries to do her best for her family, friends, clients and herself.  I have to believe in that…and myself….more than this nonsense drama…right?  Right?  Well that is my mantra anyway.

On a much lighter note…how freaking fabulous is this RD Style dress?  I am obsessed with it…dreaming up different ways to wear it.  Bright shoes….with a blazer….without a belt…big colorful statement necklace….you see the limitless possibilities…no?  Since I am mentally exhausted and actually about to head out for a Roll in the Rack with a new client…I will leave you with the photos.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and make it a great weekend:)

Monday Mingle: Simple Style

Monday-MingleNEW

If you read often you know, my favorite kind of style is simple and classic.   I keep it interesting and up to date with fun trendy accessories.  With this particular outfit, the accents stole the show…..leopard heels, fun studded belt and of course, all of my Stella and Dot baubles.  I have many clients who are afraid to accessorize…finding it overwhelming and too much fuss.  I always beg them to give it a try….usually pushing the face framers, like a great scarf or necklace.  It is amazing what some color around your beautiful face can do!

This look is featured as part of the #MondayMingle collaboration with the lovelies Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends. We love when you link up your style posts and share what you have been wearing lately.  Let’s all get fashionably inspired by one another.  Link is over at BonBon Rose Girls today!  Happy Monday:)
