Velour ~ N ~ Leopard Accents

Happy Friday Ladies...

Why does the short work weeks always seem the longest LOL... I'm happy it's Friday, the first week of the new year has been busy but great! I got back into my work out regimen (worked out 4 days already) and I'm feeling more energized and excited about what's to come for 2012. I have high expectations for myself this year and plan to work hard to accomplish all the goals I set for myself. 

What specific goals if any do you have for YOURSELF this year?

Today i'm wearing a Oldy but Goody LOL... i've had this cognac velour blazer for years, think I purchased it from the GAP, it never goes out of style, and I look forward to when the weather cools off to wear it. Paired with my leopard scarf, dark denim and Knock Off JC Lita platforms.. i'm feeling casual and chic today.  It's gonna be a busy day today so I better get to it.

Have a great day and weekend :)

  1. I love that blazer! Such a rich and pretty color! I also like how you tie your scarves in bows. I think I will try that! As far as goals, I would like to make a definitive decision if I will go back to school for another masters or my PhD. I REALLY want to find a local church home. Lastly, I want to join an organization to volunteer in the community. Whew! I'm tired just typing about it, LOL! Have a beautiful day and an even better weekend, chickadee!

    With Class & Sass,

  2. I love leopard print scarf with that blazer! It compliments each other. As far as goals or resolutions, I didn't make any because I do that from year to year and it never really turn out as planned, so this year I said that God knows me and the things I want and I am going to just pray for the grace to carry them out, taking each day, week, month one at a time! I know this is long....sorry...lol.
