First of all, HI! How have you all been, my dears? There's been so much going on lately with me, but I wanted to say how much I missed all of you. And how reading your comments and emails always makes me feel a little perked up, no matter how I'm feeling.
But when I was feeling my lowest, my girls came to the rescue, practically ripped those sweatpants off me and convinced me to come out for a much needed night on the town!
I decided the best thing to perk my spirits up was to get myself dressed in something that's admittedly a little more sexy than what I might initially reach for. I paired this lacy neon top with a basic black pencil skirt and my favorite Igigi belt.
Then, I put on some vampy makeup and even straightened my hair (although, I may or may not have spent the whole time complaining about it). Being from New Jersey, I normally live by the concept that the bigger your hair is, the closer you are to God, but I have to say I loved it.
And guess what? I had a fabulous time and forgot those troubles that seemed so insurmountable. Even for just a few hours.
The best recipe for when you're feeling down, this night taught me, is time with your friends, clothes that make you feel good about yourself and of course, a little reminder to yourself in the mirror that you don't need anyone else's permission to feel beautiful but your own.
