work outfit with white vest 1
Hey guys!  I can happily report that I am feeling a lot better, I listened to my body and got plenty of rest. I hope to resume my workouts today so we’ll see how that goes. There’s things that I’ve always loved for as long as I can remember, one of them is plaid. I remember my first pair of plaid pants, I was maybe 14 and I was obsessed with them. When they no longer fitted me I was devastated and of course my parents did not make it their priority to get me new plaid pants. Another one of them are vests, I’m from the Caribbean then moved to South Florida so the concept of Winter clothing is foreign to me. Vests are a great way to create a layered look without having a heatstroke. I’ve wanted a white vest FOREVER, I’ve been looking for one for the past 2 years. Whenever I stumbled upon one, it was always be too late to get one in my size. This time I wasn’t  a loser, no ma’am I ran, literally ran to Express as soon as I saw white tailored vest online. I got iy in a small for reference.

For work, I paired this with one of my favorite Express Portofino shirts, too bad it is already sold out. By the way this gingham one is next on my hit list. I am also wearing my SlimSation pants, ladies these are pull on pants no buttons-zippers nada! They actually look like dress pants and I want them in black and burgundy stat.

So my best-friend totally spooked me yesterday, she called to warn me about my trip to DC in December. Apparently it’s freezing right now, and as a true Floridian I think 50 degrees is extremely cold weather. She made me realized I am really not ready for my trip and I would hate to be the victim of hypothermia. I don’t do hats and according to her that’s a must, trust me I really don’t have the right head shape for hats. Of course I turned to some of my favorite stores to find all these cute winter accessories.
