On the Spot

 
 When I looked in the mirror that morning, I had a moment of shyness where I almost ran for a cardigan. An extra-long bulky cardigan, but of course I put my big girl panties on and sucked it up, walked out that door with my head held up high.

Pretty High

 
My ankles HATE me right now, but they forgave me when I put on the BACKUP FLATS.
At 5 1/2 inches, I admit the shoes are pretty high (emphasis on the pretty). But, of course I had a nice pair of comfy flats for backup. So in total, I only had the wedges on for about three to four hours. Whenever I sat down I slipped them off and when it got too much I slipped on my backup pair. After all, isn’t these shoes only for show? Do people actually keep them on all day? If so, do they hurt? If not, how in the world do you do it?! Tell. Me. Your. Secret.
 
This has to be my all-time favorite hat to wear so when the weather is about a cool 70o or 80o (which is rare in the state of New York's humidity) I wear it. Trust me, you will see this hat in quite a few posts. I know I kind of totally based this post on the shoes, but believe it or not, I based this whole outfit off of the pants. The shirt came in when I figured that I was wearing way to much black so I wore my black and white striped shirt and white bag. The bracelets where made by me!
Don’t worry, the relationship between my ankles and I is still going strong. LOL!

Skirt N' Chucks

 
This shirt is about two years old, I originally bought it at H&M. What I liked about this shirt was the yin and yang up against a dark grey background.  Usually when I see a yin and yang shirt the background is usually black or white, so to see such a grungy-grey as the background it was a little refreshing. The skirt was a last minute, “OMG I need to leave like now” moment. I haven’t wore this clutch (originally from Aldo) in a long time and all day I kept thinking about the song “Reunited”. You know that song, “Reunited and it feels so good”. Lol. Of course I wore my chucks (converses). What else would I wear with a skirt?

Roar!!!

 
Ever notice that the shyest person is always the one person that ends up having the loudest mouth and the craziest things to say? Well that’s me once I drop my walls and kick back. Depending on the situation, that happens fairly quickly. Which brings me to my point, at work my presence was known and I made sure of that. Not only my pants, edgy haircut, or my statement necklace played a part in it but, I had personality both visually and verbally. I meant business. I had to take it down a notch so I wore my black wedges and sleeveless-button-down shirt with three simple bangles. The oversized cardigan was a key item to battle New York’s crazy, kooky weather.
I AM COURTNEY, HEAR ME ROOOOOOAR!!!!!!!
