Confession: This morning was the first time this week that I actually “got dresssed.” I have been so incredibly swamped at work that I’ve been waking up, showering, and slipping right back into my PJs before logging in for work. All week, I’ve had every intention of getting dressed on my lunch break, taking pictures, running errrands…you know, living life. Lol! But, it just didn’t happen. On most days, I’d find myself still sitting at my desk at 4pm, stomach growling, only to grab something from the fridge and eat it at my desk. Ugh! So bad…so Wednesday night, I said to myself, “Eboni, you MUST take Style Me Friday pictures tomorrow…no excuses!” and wouldn’t you know it started storming. SMH! Needless to say, pictures didn’t happen, so this morning I rolled out of bed at 6:45am to brave the cold and take pictures (it’s 30 degrees outside in Atlanta this morning and SUPER windy…I think the big bad wolf is out there trying to blow our house down!)…I really didn’t want to let you guys down. Lol… especially those of you who are participating in the link up! So, with that, here it goes…
Inspiration via Fall for Fashion
Today’s inspiration comes from Tasha over at Imperfect Concepts Boutique. There were so many things about this outfit that I was drawn to. It’s a simple look, but the fabulousness is all in the details — perfectly opaque tights, luxe faux fur, classic wide brim fedora, worn-in satchel…it’s all just perfect. This stylish woman, whoever she is, totally took her all black to the next level, and I just love that! As I’m sure you noticed, I had to skip the hat. I tried to make it work, but the curls and the fur and the hat all together…it was just doing too much. Lol. But, that doesn’t mean I skimped on the luxe accessories…I think my bright blue glove (passed down from Grandma) totally, make up for it!
