WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Fall Style Diary (week 4)

26 Nov

Hey Guys! So I’ve been shooting but not posting, but the pics are coming.  As most of you know, NYC was hit by Hurricane Sandy.  This post is pre-Sandy, and by the weekend I was locked in my apartment bracing for the storm.  Thankfully nothing major happened where I lived, but none the less we were all affected by the disaster, so much so, that I didn’t leave the house for all of Week 5!

Mondays tend to be a relaxed day or a day I dress to Continue reading

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.

10.10 – 10.16
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%!













style diary, week 8

26 Feb

Waawhoooo! Week 8, 2 months down! Like every week until May, I have a lot to jam into my days with very little sleep, so comfort seems to be the key to everything for me. Even when I’m going ‘out out,’ I’ve taken the getting dressed up thing down a few notches. Heels seem like such a pain in the butt right now…but i’m sure I’ll get over it when the weather warms my toes.

You’ll notice that my Harllem lace-up boots by Steve Madden, that debuted in Week 7, are in full effect this week. They are so comfortable and perfect with this icky weather. Whether I’m wearing them with legging, relaxed jeans, or a skirt, i tend to feel bad ass in them, sort of like a sexy girl rockin’ Tims in a weird way.

Since I’ve started Style Diary, I haven’t posted my clothing changes. We all have days we wear more than one outfit, so I decided to post mine on Friday. I’m not sure if I like how it looks aesthetically on the site, but when i make a decision you may be seeing more.

Anywho, my favorite picture this week was Sunday, maybe it was the white shirt that made my eyes look striking, but I just thought the picture was the strongest. My favorite outfit of the week was Friday night. You can’t go wrong with a leather skirt and I’ve been a little bit obsessed with denim jackets as of late. I thought it was a cute outfit for a run-in with my crush, even if i didn’t end up speaking to him. lol

Be pleased with how you look each time you walk out the house! Enjoy the rest of your week!
