Weekly Recap

Well, I didn't exactly keep to my idea of doing a "What I Wore Wednesday", but at an average of 5 hours of sleep a night I'm happy I still remember the password to post on my blog. Maybe next week will be better.

Here is the past week of outfits in review:




 Outfit #1 details: Belted dress- Love 21: Fleece-lined tights- Walgreens; Boots- Forever 21 (I actually wore the heels in Outfit #2 at work, the boots for my commute); Jewelry- gifts.




 Outfit #2: Dress- Ross; Cardigan- Merona (Target); Tights- Target; Necklace- gift; Shoes- Madeleine Stuart (Ross); Belt- Forever 21.







Outfit #3: Shirt- Kohl's; Vest- Forever 21 (thrifted at Plato's Closet); Pants- The Limited; Shoes- Wet Seal; Necklace- Forever 21; Ring- Plato's Closet. 

We're almost through the week everyone! Just keep swimming...

Flashback Friday

So, I have been terrible about posting, but I've been working overtime and working on my new business: kikimiller.myrandf.com.

I recently moved, and I know I warned many of you, but I used to be gothic in high school. I found some old pants that were purchased when I was 15 that still fit!  I wish I still had all my platform buckle and lace up military boots that I wore as well, but those are long gone. Apparently I REALLY loved flames, and I only shopped at Hot Topic. See the hilarity below:






I hope you got a good laugh out of all of that. And this is what packing up my closet looks like:



I bet you didn't know someone could own so much luggage...

And, finally, I now have a separate closet for my over 65 dresses :)




I will try to be more diligent about posting soon. I also have an idea of a way to change up the blog where I post certain things on certain days of the week, i.e. What I Wore Wednesday- a recap of all the outfits of the week, and Tips Tuesday. I will come up with more ideas, but this means I may post less frequently, but I will still post pics of all of my outfits. 

Have a great weekend!

Why is it only Tuesday?

It appears that one cup of coffee with certainly not be enough to get me through the day, but the legislative session begins tomorrow, so it is back to more formal business attire soon. In the mean time though can I just say how difficult it is to look cute when it is freezing outside? Denver just recently broke out of a long streak of 20 degree or less weather and honestly it is hard to look cute when you have to wear fleece tights or leggings under your pants to keep warm. I laugh at all the fashion blogs that don't even list tights, or wool coats as winter essentials. Not all of us live in California or Texas. Some of us live places where it actually snows, the high can be a negative temperature on any given day during the winter, and piles of snow and ice stick around from November until April. During this time it is really hard to wear skirts and dresses, especially if you take public transportation to and from work, and the quintessential layers include:
  • A button-up shirt
  • A sweater
  • A blazer
  • A warm wool jacket
  • Warm and waterproof, and hopefully slip resistant, comfortable boots for the commute in to work
That being said, here is one of my last more "casual" work outfits for awhile (except on Fridays.




Outfit Details: Shirt- Ross; Sweater- Target; Pants- The Limited; Shoes- Payless; Necklace and earrings- Plato's closet.
