Black and White

Two posts…one day? That's right my friends.

Aldo boots, Forever 21 leggings, Betsey Johnson sunglasses and houndstooth cape from a stand at a Christmas market at a nearby church.

Let me just tell you about the relationship I have with this houndstooth cape. I was at a Christmas market at a church and in between the potpourri stand and the flavored pecan stand was a little stand with a bunch of weird looking clothes. Being over stimulated by the smell of cinnamon and Christmas tree I decided to take a little looks through the clothes…and that is when I realized love at first sight does exist. I put this cape on and all the house wives in the neighborhood were instantly envious that there was only one more left at the market. Needless to say, I convinced my mom to buy it for me as an early Christmas present and have been in love since.

Now let me tell you about the relationship I have with this outfit. When I take the cape off I look like I'm prepared to rob a bank. So I'm going to give ya'll a challenge. What other ways can I wear this houndstooth cape?


And I'm back in the game.

Okay guys. I'm back. So without further ado here is my first outfit post in months:

Ariat boots, White House | Black Market jeans, turtle neck stolen from my friend Jess, Banana Republic blazer, Delia's belt, and a gifted head band.

Okay ya'll it's been really cold here in Texas. I realize the rest of the country has actual snow and actual temperatures to complain about but Texans (especially me and my wardrobe) are not prepared for the cold weather. Anyways, I woke up early in the morning to go to work and the city was covered in ice. The freeways were so slippery it was like driving in Wario's Gold Mine on Mart Kart (anybody?). So I needed to wear the easiest shoes to walk in so I wasn't slipping and sliding everywhere…cue the cowboy boots.

What I didn't show you is the GINORMOUS coat I wore over this. And the fact that I was still freezing.

Hope ya'll are having a good Monday!

And so we meet again…

Okay ya'll. I'm just gonna say I'm sorry. I still haven't fixed my camera, I haven't worn anything of interest in months, and I basically gave up on blogging.

Here's what's happened in our lives since August. I (Karmen) moved back to Houston, Texas and Mandy is back in Columbia after a summer in Myrtle Beach. I'm now moving into a new apartment in downtown Houston and I finally have a job that pays me enough to support my shoe addiction. I desperately need an outlet for my creativity so I'm basically going to try and do this again.

So I'll see you soon with an actual outfit post!

double uh oh...

Hmm...if Karmen broke her camera, and I STILL do not have possession of my own camera, however are we going to get our outfits uploaded to the blog?!

Don't worry - I'm going to Columbia this weekend so we will just have to make one of our dear friends be our picture slave until we get this catastrophe settled.

And I do owe my fellow bloggers a BIG apology for my complete and utter neglect of 20 Something the past few weeks. I suppose I could place blame on my lack of camera, the recovery process from surgery, jet-setting to Nantucket, having a mass amount of family in town, and having family in the hospital...but let's face it, no one likes to hear excuses. I PROMISE to have my 30 for 30 choices uploaded as soon as I have access to a tangible and working camera - don't give up on me!

missing you all terribly,

Third time's a charm

Express skirt, Urban shirt and gray heels, Venetian glass earrings found on my European trip in the back streets of Venice.

I wish I could say that I wore this outfit to work, or maybe on a hot date, or even to a nice lunch. I actually got all dressed up to go to Chic-fil-A for a spicy chicken sandwich and get my oil changed for the upcoming move. All the people serving me waffle fries and those at the auto shop thought I looked super cute though.

Sorry for the lack of updating but unfortunately I haven't a reason to get dressed up. Mandy came back this weekend and we all spent the entire 2 days in our swimsuits at the pool or on the slip and slide out back. I guess I'll have to start putting on clothes during the day if I'm ever going to finish this challenge…

All my best,

Pizza Burgers

Today I drove out to Darlington to have lunch with my friend Jess. After an hour long drive listening to Nelly and TLC (straight up middle school, I know) I finally arrived in the small town of Darlington, South Carolina. We went to Joe's to get a delicious pizza burger and catch up on everything.

Tell me that doesn't look delicious.

Limited skirt, Forever 21 shirt, Delias belt, Ciao Bella ballet flats, and Ashley's awesome brown necklace from Charming Charlies (that I bought for her obvi)

I got Ashley to take my picture today. We were outside for a total of 3 minutes when Ashley started sweating and passing out of heat exhaustion thus giving up on a grand photo shoot. So that's why that second picture is so awkward…

Today I realized I will be moving back home soon. Did the summer really go by that fast? Anyways, this 30 for 30 challenge will have to move back home with me. Hopefully I can handle it so far away from everyone…

All my best,

PS. Mandy is coming to visit this weekend!!!
