Home Sweet Home
It is good to be home.
I do love to travel and visit other places, and Las Vegas was no different. Such an interesting city. I have to admit that I like NYC and DC more, but Vegas is cool in its own way. But nothing beats being home in sweet Virginia.
First, a big huge thanks goes out to Kerrie, Monk, Mandy, and Christina for filling in for me last week while I was off on my first business trip for my new job...in Las Vegas :). Sadly, because I am hyper-paranoid about losing luggage (it's carry-on for me all the way) and also didn't have any time to snap pictures in anywhere cool, I had a VERY limited wardrobe and didn't feel like I was in the kind of mental state to be stylish, so no Vegas pics. So my uninspired wardrobe will have to just stay behind in Vegas. Hey, I had to leave something there, right? :)
This is the first outfit in a week that I felt like even had an inkling of style. Maybe it's because today was the first day in over a week that I actually wore heels! I was walking so much last week that I just stuck with flats for most of the time and just haven't had a chance to wear heels since getting back. But today I was determined to do so.
I'm actually lucky that I even came up with this outfit. I am still adjusting to my new work hours and only had like 2 minutes to get dressed. Thank flippin' goodness for black dresses. They are little gifts sent from God. Instantly stylish just because it is cut into a dress shape and its color is black. Perhaps that is why I can't get enough of them :).
Thanks for hangin' with me and a big welcome to the new readers! Please leave me a comment - I am slowly, but surely making my way around the blogosphere, catching up on posts I missed and leaving comments with millions of exclamation points :). Sorry, can't help myself! I love the inspiration of all you ladies!
