August 9, 2020

Candid shot of me searching for my keys. I spend half my life looking for my keys. 😂

Shop the Look:


Okay, but let’s talk about the outfit. I’ve been loving these cool tanks with shoulder pads that I’ve been seeing around.  I wanted to try the look, but not spend much since I wasn’t sure if it was going to work for me. I got this one at ASOS and I like it!  Though I do wish I had sized down.  (I’m wearing medium.)

I’m also wearing a stainless steel chain and lock that I found on Etsy.  It’s giving me those 90’s vibe, as are the high waisted jeans (Curvy Cheeky Jeans from Everlane).  It might be too much early 90’s love in one outfit actually, but I think it works.  This look could look too tough, but I’m so girly in my voice and mannerisms that I like to rough myself up a bit with some edge! 😉

I’ve got to keep it short and simple today, dear readers.  I have to get a few things ready for our online staff meeting tomorrow.  And I need my cart ready for Nordstrom Sale shopping tomorrow morning!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  If you follow me on social media, you might have noticed that I celebrated a big milestone this weekend: twenty years of sobriety! Very special for me!

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

    Love the outfit! I am also a fan of tough girl looks. I did not know that Ts with shoulder pads were around again.

    I bought a tee with shoulder pads, I’m a pear shape, so I’ve always liked them. Glad to see them back as an option!
