Boston Bloggers and Readers Meet up?

Hey Guys. So this weekend is the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival and I’m thinking it would be a great time for a meet-up. I am definitely interested in checking out the event and there are lots of interesting presenters. Yeah yeah, it’s Halloween weekend and I actually have evening plans (though not involving dressing up, I’m not creative or fun enough for that) but I have Saturday and Sunday day open.  The event is all day on Saturday and Sunday. Would anyone be interested in partaking? Could be fun to meet new people, chit-chat, try free samples and enjoy some time together.

Comment below or email me @ lpskins@hotmail.com

Let’s make this happen!

ChaChing!

I know I’m a little late on this but thank you so much for your great feedback on my blog. I’m taking it all in.

Back to the juicy details— Girlfriend went shopping yesterday.

Here’s the deal– I despise, DESPISE collared shirts. It’s fair to say that work clothes make me cringe. I’d rather walk around naked than wear some starchy pin stripes. Well, that’s probably not true. Still, you get the idea.

Somehow I’m managed to grunge down my wardrobe at every job I’ve had. One place even let me wear jeans every day! Now that was a Christmas miracle. Since I’m starting a new job this week (it actually got postponed till next week) I had to give my closet a makeover. My friend said, ” You must have the basic black pants and a cardigan, right?” Since I’m almost 30 you’d think she was right but sadly I don’t.

With credit card in hand, I was off. My intention was to find a professional style that didn’t compromise comfort. And NO collared shirts. (Bless the people who can pull them off. I look like a football player in them.)

 

Gap Outlet and Marshalls. Not crazy about any of these except the bottom right. it's sheer and looks AWESOME with skinnys.

My personal fave-- not for work of course. See that red mark on my chest? Sports bra burn. Ouch.

Those skinny jeans on bottom right (black and gray) were 13 bucks each!!!!!! The boots on the top left were 45 bucks from Gap Outlet.

 

Tj. Maxx and Urban Outfitter.

 

That white on the bottom right is sheer and will be worn with a cami– on sale at Urban.  LOVE that green tank with the things (whats that called?) around the front but it was definitely overpriced.

So yeah, I went a little nuts yesterday.

How do you develop your professional style?
