The fall is coming and stores are currently laden with monochromatic black, white and neutral goodies! Which seems to be working out perfectly for me as I was a big black clothing lover pre blog days. I was very keen to wear a black wedding dress to which my mother’s response was always “It is supposed to be a wedding not a funeral”. And in the end I wore white for my hubby and red (the traditional dress for my culture) for my family.
I have also been frolicking around the world due to my Dad’s job and England was one of my most favorite places in the whole wide world. Hence when we spotted these leggings both Hubby and I knew it belonged in my closet. I have never been a fan of wearing leggings without a longer top but these leggings seem to have the right cut and pattern to help you not feel super conscious having your derriere hanging out.
I am also taking advantage of whats left of somewhat warmish of a weather to get some crop top time in without a blazer or jacket because there is noway we on the east coast are going to be able to rock our crop tops without covering up real good in heavy jackets. Lucky Cali and Florida folks can live it up for me once it gets cold here 🙂
I had chosen this outfit for a day trip to the mall and then later lunch with the hubby. I think every girl wants to be a little rough and tough every now and then and it was that kind of a day for me 🙂
P.S I am putting in a picture of my beloved camera man in this post too for those of you who have always wondered who the man behind the camera is and what sense of style does he own 🙂

I have been saving up all my crop tops for when I get back in shape and I think I am slowly getting there. I had envisioned wearing crop tops with a high waisted skirt. That sounded like the most ideal way for me to wear it since I love pencil or skin tight skirts. I still haven’t had a chance to wear it with a blazer as the weather hasn’t been cold enough yet. But I am planning to do alot of that this fall and winter.
On this particular day Hubby and I decided to go out and about for coffee and then some dinner. It is kind of a risque style for where I live because this outfit more particularly fit better in Cali, NYC or Europe. But that didn’t stop me from wearing it. My hubby always says that my style doesnt belong in the state we reside in and I guess that is what I have inherited living in 3 different continents and 4 different countries all through my life growing up. Atleast I didn’t get any angry or upset look so I would chalk it up as maybe more people will start trying out this trend here or just might be more accepting of the trend.

Fall is officially here and I couldnt wait to step back into one of my all time fave outfit styles in my fave color: A Plummish or Purple Dress with tights and boots! Not to mention I am a big Ravens fan and our team colors are Black and Purple. I had to rep the colors after this Sunday’s AMMMAZING WIN!
I wore the outfit to work with a Black Blazer on top. I had no makeup on all day.I did a quick 5 minute makeup magic trick as I was headed out of work. Simple transition from work to a date night outfit in a jiffy. Unfortunately I didn’t picture the Blazer with my outfit cause I wanted to show off the dress once I got out of work and headed to dinner with the hubby! Left the Blazer in the car 🙂
These boots are the only boots that are doctor appointed to be worn by me for now! Cant wait to fully recover my feet so i can break into some different pair of boots! Lets hope I get to do that by the end of this winter. As mentioned on my inspiration page Plantar Fasciitis could be a life long ailment so lets keep our fingers crossed 🙂
