New Dress

Ross was having a crazy good sale a few weeks ago and I walked out of there with 5 dress for under $30. This was one of them. I like it. It definitely draws attention to my fuller figure, but it has a nice slightly retro sexy vibe, too - but not too over the top for church! My mom gave me this necklace for Valentine's Day, and these shoes drive my husband crazy every time I wear them. Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again - why would anyone wear pantyhose when nude fishnet thigh highs are an option? They are so much cuter and make me feel a lot sexier than hose ever did!

Bright Red Streaks

I decided I wanted to add a little drama to my look, so I put some bright red streaks in my hair:
Now I work part time for the local school system, and they're pretty lax about this type of thing so I wasn't worried about it. However, I'm also on the substitute teacher list and I do try to dress pretty conservatively when I sub - but I hadn't gotten called in a couple of months. Since doing this to my hair I've gotten called 5 times in a week and a half! I only ended up subbing 3 of those days, but I did find pretty good ways to camouflage it and still look quite stylish!
The whole outfit was one of my recent favorites!

Happy Hour!

So, my husband took a job with an awesome firm a couple months ago and one of the perks is that they do a happy hour once a month at a local restaurant. Its a super casual workplace, so I didn't dress up to go and meet him there, but I wanted to look stylish and hip since we're almost 10 years older than a lot of people who work there! (he's one of the senior developers, a lot of the employees are fresh out of college) First of all, I looooove this coat. My sister gave it to me years ago and I get compliments on it every single time I go out in it! This coral necklace also got compliments from a couple of the designers there!
