In the last week, not much has changed and yet, it has.  About a week ago, I realized the truth about a person that I thought was a good guy.  A good friend.  Turns out, he was never really my friend at all and I wasted a very long two years thinking about him and hoping we'd get to a different point.  And strangely, as sad as that makes me, I'm a little bit relieved.  Now there is no wondering.  Now I know for sure. As much as it stings a little right now, I believe my heart will heal and I'll be thankful one day. Since last Thursday I've been re framing things and looking for the good in all of the things that I've been feeling lately. 

So you can imagine my delight when I was doing my daily blog reading,  I discovered  that my friend, Allison from Life in the Slow Lane,  had given me the Stylish Blogger Award! 

 I never think of myself as stylish but I'm flattered if someone out there does.  So for this award I'm supposed to share some of my fashion dos/don'ts. 

I will share two things I believe in strongly.  I believe in classic, simple clothes.  I love dresses.  I love heels.  I feel like that always makes someone pulled together.  I really believe that good accessories can enhance any outfit.   A simple black dress can be sassy with a headband, cute shoes, a fun bag and good costume jewelry. 

Like this little guy.  I got him for $1.50 at an "antique/junk" store.  I really loved the stone.  Adds a little sass. 
And my most important belief in my style is always have freshly painted nails.  I think it looks like an effort was made.  And chipped nails are ever acceptable.  Ever.
(I'm currently wearing Planks A lot by OPI)
And I'm supposed to pass this on.  I'd like to pass it on to one of my favorite people to talk about style/fashion with:  Cristina from Pinkhouse Press.  She has style and class and will certainly have some fun tips for us! 

This was fun! Thanks, Allison for the shout out! :)

Aw. Thank you so much. As I was getting to the end I was thinking that I would be writing something like "aw, you ARE all those things, and I'm sad but glad that you are reframing" and then you drop a little love for me at the end too. I got a little weepy, girl! Sass on, Sass on. It's all I can say! And F all the dummies.
