My Outfit Monday: Workin' It on the Weekend



I’m just going to be real: You don’t want to see my outfit this Monday.

As you can probably guess by the late timing of this post, today has been hectic. Today has been hectic because I was out in the field much of the day reporting. That means my main clothing focus was comfort and (unexpectedly) warmth. And while the result wasn’t exactly dismal, it wasn’t very exciting either.

So I’ll do you one better and show you my outfit from Saturday. Because, after all, everything about Saturdays are awesome!

This pic was snapped at the Patel Center on USF’s campus, where the Tampa Bay Association of Black Journalists was hosting a multimedia seminar for media professionals.

As the group’s vice prez, I needed to be relatively on time. But a run-in with my apartment complex’s errant sprinkler system meant my hair just was not working.

Without enough time to do my ‘do, I reached for the tan fedora I picked up last summer at Tar-jay.

I threw on a  black and white print top with a hi-lo hem that I found a couple months ago on Express’s clearance rack for $15 (score!). I paired that with my dark wash skinny jeans.

But – shout out to my hard-to-fit-footed sisters!! – the best part, in my humble opinion, are the Fioni brand flats from Payless. Not only was the price right (one pair for $25 and the other for $12 as part of a “buy one, get one half off” sale -- double score!), but these shoes actually fit narrow feet (quadrihexituple score!).

I finished things off with a long triple-strand black necklace and – for a pop of color – a blue bracelet and earrings.

What say you, fashionistas: Thumbs up or thumbs down on this outfit?
