1 Yellow Days ::: Yellow Jeans

I remember when the sunlight had a special kind of brightness..... Frank Sinatra
And you could hear a laughter from across the street, 
now all I hear are thunder claps and the pitter patter of rain drops, 
I can barely hear the onions sizzle as I spoon-push the slices into the oil as I make my meal.
Yellow Days, where'd you go?
I want you back, I need the rain to stop. I'll take the sunshine anyhow; harsh or tender like I've styled these yellow jeans in neutrals or colors many times before.

8 Casual ::: Printed Pants and Denim Vest

I usually dress very casual.
Whenever I go out with my friends, I'm always like,
'Can't I just wear sweatpants?'
- Natalie Portman
I certainly cannot wear sweatpants and even if I did want to I would not be allowed. So, this is my definition of casual when I go out with the girls: loose fitting pants. This time I wore it with a white tank, denim vest and my new pair of pointies.

6 Shorts ::: Bermuda Shorts

“I would show up for work and look at the pairs of tight, shiny shorts or jeans that made up our 54 wardrobe and wonder if we were making Showgirls...”
--------- Ryan Phillippe
If you are like me and the thought of wearing short shorts for day makes you wonder like Ryan Phillippe in the above quote then the Bermuda shorts are for you. I love that they cover-up all my insecurities, like spider veins, quite nicely and are still trendy.
 I've had these Ankara Bermuda shorts for sometime now, I didn't quite like how I styled them here formerly; but that's one of the reasons for having this blog........to evolve my personal style and I'm glad to say myself that I've been noting some improvement. I also hope that if you are a regular reader you learn from my good and bad outfits and rock what works best for you.  
I have been giving tough love to my feet with these chunky tan ankle strap heels. They go with practically everything in my closet.....I consider shoes like that a great buy.
