Back in 2010 when this blog was According to Jay, I introduced Style Diary to start the new year, a glimpse, a diary if you will, that looked at what i wore for the week.  It was supposed to be sort of this photo documentary, that i was toying with, but sadly my schedule did not permit me to keep up with it.  To read about the background of my idea, check out Style Diary: Week 1. (or click on the What Gets You Movin, Style Diary, categories tab, to see the whole series)

If you read Style Diary: Week 1, you know I’m no fashonista; I don’t even like to shop.  I just like clothing, and what the ability of dressing does to you mood, mindset, and body.  I think rocking a key piece always makes you looked dressed, whether casually or formally dressed. And there is a science to wearing clothes, to make your body look the way you want it to…proportions are everything! 

Over the 1 1/2 years that I stopped posting to the Style Diary, I’ve had quite a few people ask me about it; I didn’t even realize people were checking it out! So here we are again, nearing 2012, and I’m jumping back into the shoes of Style Diary.

I’m simplifying this time around so that i can fit it into my schedule, so no background scenery changes, but hang out with me as I work it out the kinks.

What a week to start shooting the Style Diary!  I’ve been in a bit of a sad stupor, overwhelmed with all that I have going on, and sleeping maybe 4 days out the week.  This means outfits that are quick, comfortable and apparently black?  I wasn’t aware until i looked at pics how much black I was wearing, so I’ll have to say Tuesday was my favorite outfit.  I don’t wear prints that often, but I was drawn to this Native American-esque print as soon as I saw it; throw that on with a skinny jean and heel, and my mood goes up 200%!
