Wrapping Up October’s Month of Fashion

screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-11-45-27-am

I made it through the month of #Frocktober, and I have to admit, I had a good time doing it! I posted my outfits daily on Instagram, begged folks to take my photo, and felt pressure to put an ensemble together worthy of documenting. I’m not a fashion blogger, but I am a blogger who loves to include fashion into her blog. As I mentioned in the last post, fashion is a passion, and it always has been for me. I often wish I weren’t 5’1″, but instead taller so I could wear even more daring, bold, and fun clothes. I have to be careful what I put on my small stature so I don’t become overwhelmed by clothing. Also, Coco Chanel was so right when she said, “Before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and take one accessory off.” It’s a good tip still—you don’t want your accessories to get noticed before you do.

I’m posting my last few photos from the month. Thanks again for following along with me on my month-long fashion journey. I’m sure it’s not quite over yet.

Also, special thanks to the following people for being lovely and patient enough to take my photographs:

Ellie Verni • Matt Verni • Anthony Verni • Leeanne Bell McManus • Emily Rosenthal • Kait Kirkwood • Leni Parrillo • Chip Rouse

#FROCTOBER | Day 31, Part 1--This is it, friends! I made it through the month of fashion. Because I taught the Internship Preparation course today, and we talked about how to dress for interviews and work, I thought I'd sport a suit from my professional wardrobe. This #ootd is an #anntaylor suit; #mossimo cranberry cami; #christiansiriano shoes; cranberry faux fur scarf from #Macy's. I'll have one last outfit later tonight to end the feature. #happyhalloween !!! 🎃🕸🍁🍂

LAST DAY OF #FROCKTOBER | Day 31, Part 2--Thought I'd end the series with my favorite sweater with faux leopard sleeves and collar from #INC at #macys; red pants from #whitehouseblackmarket; black boots by #CharlesDavid. I had a lot of fun doing this...so perhaps there will be more fashion to come #ontheblog. Thanks for following along for the month to see #whatiwore. Ciao, Bellas!

This shot was taken by our kids in Fell's Point at the spot of our first date, The Daily Grind. Many, many coffees later, we celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary yesterday.
