Thanksgiving may be over, however I'm still giving thanks. Since setting out on this blogging journey I've met a number of people who have taught me quite a bit about the power of community. You need a community of people who will uplift you and help you to become the best you possible.
When I started blogging I had no idea it would turn into something that I surprisingly enjoy doing. Neither could I have imagined that blogging would force me to befriend complete strangers. It's kinda ironic because while I'm not shy, I normally don't engage or initiate conversations with people I don't know.
So when Chanel of Chanel Moving Forward invited me to attend her Friendsgiving with a few other Atlanta's bloggers earlier this month I was excited, then anxious and then I went into full panic mode!!! My panic mode was triggered when I realized I was going to have to bring a dish. Man, let me tell you, I will do almost anything not to have to cook. Cooking is my least favorite thing to do (in the world). Long story short, I ended up bringing greek chicken salad from Publix which, btw, was delicious. Getting to mix, mingle and eat with these awesome ladies was wonderful.
Okay now about my outfit of choice. Anytime I go somewhere, the goal is to make a lasting impression and we all know that the first impression is lasting. That's why my get-up needed to be on point. And on point it was (yes, I just tooted my own horn). I built my look around this mauve colored faux fur vest which I thrifted, but this one is pretty darn close. To make the look a little interesting, I wore this H&M Embroidered Sleeve Shirt and oxblood cropped pants that I've had for a while, but these cigarette pants from Asos would absolutely work. Now if you'll bring your attention to my foot work, you see peeking through are a really dope-a-licious pair of socks paired with one of my favorite pair of platform oxfords (similar here) from ShoeDazzle. My choice of accessories (hat, glasses and mini handbag) brought the entire look together. Sidenote, don't under estimate the power of accessories.
Alright kläzit lovers I hope this look brings you lots of inspiration and let's make today grrrrreat!!!
