It's Hip To Be Square?

Worn to work Wednesday, June 8



Shoes-DV for Target/Dress-Calvin Klein/Jewelry-Black Sheep

Just a simple, conservatively cut, basic dress, but in a subtle print.  I styled it with black and grey ballet flats for a conservative meeting in the morning...then swapped them out for these sandals for the rest of the stifling hot day.

Purple, ruffles, big dangly earrings, cool pattern skirt...love it all!!

I came to a realization today...I am not hip.  Know what...I am ok with that.  I had a meeting today at a trendy restaurant with a publication that is all about the hip places and people who want to see and be seen. There was a time in my life when I went to the newest restaurants, loved to go out to bars and be seen.  For a moment today, I let myself feel so inferior, but then I realized I am 35 (next month) and I finally ok with who I am and what place I am at in my life...and that is huge accomplishment!

Good for you!!! You ARE hip. You're stylish and classy and you know how to dress to make you look fabulous.

I'm pretty sure you're fun to be around too. :)

I love that black print dress. CK dresses seem to fit me better than any other brand I have ever found and I always try to snag them off the racks at TJ Maxx/Marshall's/Ross when I see them marked down!

"Hip" is a state of mind, don't you think? I think that if you are okay with who you are and aren't trying to be anyone else, then you ARE hip.

I tried on those sandals in the first outfit. they are super cute, but I went with a different pair that is flat. Should have picked up both :)

You look darling and I love the skirt in the second look. Great stripes!!
