Dressing Up and Dressing Down

Dressing Up and Dressing Down...
is probably the easiest thing you can do to most of the pieces in your wardrobe. I am not the most fashionable and I do not claim to be a stylist or an expert. I say words like "fluffy" and "sparkly" or sometimes the infamous "hobo" to describe my clothing so I am just sharing my own person style...flavor or what have you.

Today started off cold and wet so I dressed accordingly.
I am pretty sure this top was from FOREVER21 like most of my recent buys have been, but I am not 100% because I bit the tag off and spit it out like a clip to a grenade and put it on and ran out the door.I love this sweater dress, or in my case top because the good lord blessed me with spider legs haha. I love it because of the bright blue color and bold text.
Its a playful spin on the traditional gym sweat shirt you wore in High School gym class.
I wore this one to the movies and paired it with black tights and over the knee boots.
The tights are cool too. They have a furry material on the inside that is not too thick because you cant see the texture from the outside. They came in handy, and kept me extra warm when I needed it. I purchased them at Fashion Q (Azusa Ca) for about $8. These boots are currently sold out after I featured them in a few posts back. I think they might still have them on their site in brown CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE SITE

I curled my hair quickly with my GHD flat iron. I didnt spend too much time styling my hair, obviously, because it was raining outside and there would be no point to go thru all that trouble to end up with a soggy mop 5 mins after I walked out of the door.
So as you can see in this quick post....
you can easily dress up your sweatshirt with tights and boots, and dress down your sexy boots with a slightly over sized sweatshirt.
I went to visit my Dad in the hospital today. I wanted to thank everyone for your kind messages/comments/tweets/prayers for him. He looks better and is in good spirits.
I also saw the movie True Grit staring THE DUDE himself Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and a few other familiar faces. It was not what I was expecting at all. I laughed more than I thought I would, and was like wtf at the end. I don't want to ruin it for those who haven't seen it, and here is the trailer for those who don't have a clue of what I am talking about....

Okay Sonia on your blog you said you bit the tag off and spit it out like a grip to a grenade...and your ex was in the Navy right..well IDK what the Navy does or if they ever deal with grenades, but if you ever try to take the pin out of the grenade with ur mouth then expect ur whole teeth to come falling off because those pins are no joke and its only in THE MOVIES where people take the pin out with the mouth...it's retarded and not true at all...

Your boots are so cute! I love how you paired them with the sweater to dress them down. Also, I'm obsessed with nude lips because I almost always sport a smokey eye ;)
