Friend Friday: Do I really work those clothes?

1. When it comes to outfit posts on your own blog, be honest are they what you actually wore that day?
100 percent yes.  Either I just come home from work and take pics or I have just came from church or some where and take pics after that.  I have to wear my clothes that I wore that day.  Or I like taking pics at home of me in my outfits.

2. For a fashion blogger, working in a corporate environment can be tricky. How do you mesh your day job with your personal style choices?
My individuality does not change but I also do not work in a corporate environment, I work for a non-profit organization and I cannot wear jeans, flip flops or cutouts to name a few. So since I can't wear jeans I completely do a 360 and wear dresses, skirts, blouses and trouser pants etc.  I love color and accessories so I brighten up my wardrobe by adding those pieces to my outfits.

3. When you get dressed in the morning, do you think what should I wear to work or what should I wear for the blog? 
I get my outfits ready the Sunday before the work week and accessorize my jewelry and shoes so I am ready for each day.  I have an active life away from my blog so my blog is not the first thing in the morning I think about.

4. Do professionals you interact with ever make comments about your clothing choices?
All the time.  Even though I accessorize with jewelry, belts, headbands and purses I am always considered looking professional and put together. It looks like I have more clothing than I actually have because I work my outfits in so many different ways.  I learned that technique from my mother, invaluable information. I have even been asked by a some colleagues if I could be their personal stylist.

5. Some bloggers openly admit to wearing outfits only for the blog post. What's your opinion on that?
In my opinion I will not judge anyone because it's their blog and they can do what they want with it.  I can only speak for myself and I wear the outfits that day when I or my husband takes pics of me in them. My hubby enjoys taking the pics and it's a lot of fun. I am very critical of the pics and he helps keep me grounded.


  1. That's so sweet that your husband takes your photos for you and enjoys it!
    I must take a page out of your book and organize outfits in advance - that is so organized!

  2. Thanks Veshoevius! It takes some effort to get my clothes ready and iron everything and put them on hangers because I also get my husband's clothes ready too. It can take me about an hour to an hour an a half but it's worth it. My hubby will pick out his own clothes most of the time and will ask me for advice when needed.

  3. I don't know how people can dress up just for a blog post. LOL Maybe because I just don't have the time. I hate taking pictures, but since I've started taking them for my blog I've become a little more agreeable to taking them. However, I have to take them before work...otherwise I'd look a mess! Taking a picture after teaching 20 students for 8 hours=no good! I usually take pictures before church, too...just in case God wants to have His way and I end up looking a mess after church. HA!

    Thanks for the Friend Friday comment love on my blog!
