It's Friday and I'm doing my happy dance.  What about you?  Aside from a Thrifted Brunch hosted by Keren of Thrifting Atlanta this Sunday, my weekend should be pret-ty low key.  

A few weeks ago I attended The Curvy Fashionista's TCFStyle Expo (recap here) and one of my favoritest (made up word) male bloggers / IG'ers was going to be in town for the expo.  And of course a collab was required.  Before I go any further, let me introduce to some and present to other --- drum rollllllll --- Michael-Anthony Spearman of The Big Fashion Guy.

Although Michael says he's my fan, it's really the other way around.  I actually started following him first.  Oh! Wait!! Before I forget.  Please! Please! Please! Make sure you're following his equally fabulous boo-thang, Lissa Mathieu of I Am Plus.

Okay, getting back on track.  Since Michael was going to be in Atlanta, we thought it would be fun to get in front of the same camera lens for a couple looks.  Needless to say we only managed to get in this one look.  The style expo had us both running all over the place.    

And just in case you noticed, my look was taken in two different locations.  The reason why is that we used a photographer that wasn't use to taking street style pics; and truthfully, I didn't like how some of out photos came out.  So I just re-did the look when I shot with my photographer Kaylin.

My look comes in just under $40.  The top and the clutch was thrifted and the Adidas pants were a mother's day gift from my son (really my husband).  The shoes are from Aldo's (old) but I got on sale for about $30.  The glasses are from some mall kiosk.  

Michael-Anthony is sporting Levi's (DIY distressed) jeans with a Perry Ellis vest and Henley shirt from Old Navy.  The hat is a Stacy Adams banded fedora.  And it's only fitting that we walk in style together in a pair of Aldo shoes.

Mini Graffiti Skirt + Neon Yellow Clutch

I swear! This Atlanta weather is bipolar.  One day it's sunny, then the next day we're bracing ourselves for a mini hurricane.  I was suppose to shoot yesterday but had to reschedule for this weekend due to the 'storm.'  But no complaints because things could be worst.

Today's #ootd got me reliving my younger years with this teeny bopper skirt.  I knew it was short, but didn't realize how short it actually is.  Let's just say picking up anything past my waist is not an option.  Although my style ranges from edgy to playful, there's still some things I shy away from.  Wearing a skirt this short is definitely out of my comfort zone, that's why I went with sneakers (my fave) instead of a heeled shoe to keep my lady parts from drawing the wrong type of attention.  I paired the skirt with this moto jacket since it's still a tad breezy out.  And for good measure, I added this cute little neon clutch.  I dare you to try something different, something you've thought about wearing but were afraid to.  Go ahead you can do it.
