The T-Straps

photography by: Greg Proctor

 For someone who adores all blue hues, I sure have been wearing a whole lot from the pink and red family. In an effort to utilize what is currently IN my closet as opposed to purchasing more items, I have been keeping an inventory of what I own and actually wearing it. I am certainly a repeat offender and have my favorite garments that I wear over and over.
I am not sure if its my current obsession with Mad Men or the fact that I am getting older but lately I have been drawn to all things classic. I used to be the girl showing cleavage and wearing tight fitting bottoms but I now gravitate to more clean lines like this midi skirt from ASOS. A form fitting midi pencil skirt kicks a mini skirts arse for instant sex appeal in my book!

This outfit works well for a work environment even with the addition of the metallic moto jacket. I cannot stress enough how important it is to take a trend and add your own unique touch to it. There is nothing more bland than wearing something straight from a mannequin without jazzying it up just a tad.

It's definitely older. As you get older you realize that you don't have to show your ass to be sexy

This is such a cute look! Blue is my favorite color, but I have also been wearing a lot of red and hot pink recently. It must be something in the air...lol
