Monday, Monday: Black, Gold & Red

Happy rainy Monday!! It’s been a wet, rainy weekend here in East TN but I’m thankful for the rain because it makes our garden and grass so green and literally jump out of the ground!! I can’t wait to harvest some fresh produce this summer!

I really liked this outfit but as you will see, I think it ended up making me look like I was slumping over.

Black, Gold & Red

Hi-Low Top & Bangle – Target, Pants – Chadwicks, Sandals – Shoe Show, Black Bead Necklace – Grandmother

This was probably the best view I got of this outfit; not because you can see a view of my backside but because it shows off the hi-low top really well.

Alright it wasn’t too bad from the front and I swear these pant are more of a red/cranberry vs. hot pink/fuchsia as shown here.


Notice the middle photo below, shoulders back – yes my leg is bent but still I look slumpy (new word). Either way, this was a cute outfit and totally fit the business casual – office – chic look I’m attempting these days.


Any of you ladies ever had an outfit you loved or felt good in, only to later realize you looked slumpy?
