Dressing up a Polo


Today's casual & dressy combo was inspired by the following photo:
 I switched up the colors of the pants and the under shirt and added brown instead of white. The idea was wearing a polo top over a button down and pairing them with dressy shoes.
 This polo top is very old and so is the button down I wore under. Wish the blouse was a bit longer so it would peek out but they were both pretty cropped.
 I added a hot pink belt that occasionally showed itself for fun!
 Added the big pink ring my mom has given me as a gift and some of my tiffany charm necklaces for some chunky shine.
These are my old work shoes. The mid height heel is perfect and the leather pumps are very comfy. The extreme pointy toe looks trendy.






Polo top - Ralph Lauren
Pastel pink blouse - Mango
Pants - J Crew
Heels - Steve Madden
Belt - Forever 21

TODAY:
Started a funky 3 day Diet today. I chose a diet where the food is fresh (no powders or packaged food orders) and fruits are vegetables are part of it and so is caffaine (cause I will die without). Also chose one where I can buy the items during my trip.
Day 1 Meals were as follows:
Breakfast: Black coffee or tea with sweetner, 1/2 grapefruit or juice (I ate the fruit) and 1 toast with 1 tbs of peanut butter.
Lunch: 1/2 cup of tuna, 1 toast and black coffee or tea again.
Dinner: 3 oz lean meat or chicken, 1 cup green beans, 1 cup carrots, 1 apple and 1 cup regular vanilla ice cream.

This diet works fine for the environment I am in. Cause this low of a calorie count would cause me to faint probably if I did this at home with kids. Here we are so inactive and so busy you barely think of food or get really hungry.
And the best part my breakfast and lunch cost was $2.83 each and my dinner cost under $15 !!!!
I don't feel hungary at all yet but I think the food is less tomorrow. I will write about that too.

  1. What makes this outfit sing for me are the pointy shoes. Wow, are they pointy! They add jazz to the whole look.
