I Love Me Some Him

Swapping out a winter frock, no! Putting it to use on a nice Summer Day! I call this Transition Dressing. I may wear this again in December with tights and a pair of boots to a Christmas party. I could wear it to work with a blazer and heels. Make your closet work for you ladies!

Me & Jesus 🙂

I love me some him! You better ask somebody. I work hard, play hard but I pray even harder to navigate this thing we call life. I am grateful and thankful for all the blessings and experiences I have been through. When people have done you wrong, look at it as a blessing. God navigating you to better terrain, peaceful waters, a more meaningful life. Don’t be angry, be blessed in knowing that he is moving you forward, it’s up to you to recognize and receive!

What are you thankful for on this fabulous Sunday?

Cheers to Jesus 🙂

Happy Sunday!

Summerize Your Winter Gear

I shop for dresses that serve a multi-purpose, making it work for me and not the other way around.  Having options is the ultimate time and money saver. So how do you do that on a budget? Shop accordingly, make the right choices to get more out of your outfits.   For example, this red Calvin Klein dress does a double-take.  It makes a debut for the fall, paired with boots tights and a jacket:

I am always near a train station it seems!

Then it makes a second appearance, with a hair change and peep-toe heels:

Apparently, I love train stations 🙂

Shop with a purpose, if your goal is to have the basics in your closet before moving to trends then start with that and see how you can use the basic black, red dress in different situations summer/winter, business/pleasure. Play around with it throwing on accessories or a jacket to change the look up to serve the particular purpose. Stretch your dollars by getting more out of that one outfit.
Cheers to getting two for one…

Happy Independence Day

Hanging out at Nevins. One of my favorite train stations, it's clean 🙂

I remembered a former colleague once said to me that she would say to herself in the morning WWDW "What Would Danalee Wear."  Did I mention this before in another post, hope I am not telling that story again.  Anyway, I still think it is hilarious and flattered she would say that, let alone even think about me when she was getting dressed for work.  I never know what I am going to put on in the morning either.  The mood has to strike me. If I feel serious, whimsy, edgy, feisty, flirty, happy, pissed off, or a combination of all, then I know what I will throw on.

This morning I was feeling happy and flirty with a sprinkle of exhaustion!  What better way to express those feelings by smothering myself in pink.

Outfit check, matching yet mismatched casual holiday frock. It’s hot and truth be told I can’t put on a suit and be all lawyered up all the time.  In my world (Danalee’s world that is, come visit sometime) I think it’s just fine to throw on a summer dress and a sweater for the office.  Of course, since it’s a holiday weekend you may get away with a more relaxed look at the office. My sweater is a little see-through, ok a lot see-through.   However it’s not any ole sweater. The crochet pattern gives it a heightened flair, no?  I think so!

So, if you are having one of those no pencil skirt, no buttoned-down shirt and no heels kind of day try out this simple approach. You won’t regret it…

Cheers, to being Independent!  Be safe this weekend.

Oh and remember to keep it simple during the summer with your wardrobe, wherever your office may be. But, for my lawyers don’t wear this to court 🙂
