This is a diary of things that interest me at thirty: my kid, my job, and my life.

Safari Chic- Gazelle
The gazelle... Its a form of antelope... did you know that?! I chose it because it is the shortest of the versions of antelope and super fast. According to the all knowing Wikipedia, it can reach speeds of 60mph.
I centered this outfit around the bag which was a gift from my mom. Now that I'm into animal print, I can really appreciate it because at first I didn't know what to do with it. I just bought this khaki skirt to replace another skirt that doesn't quite fit the way it used to. I don't know if it lost its shape or I'm just tired of wearing it, but its getting donated soon. I got this shirt because I love the way it feels against my skin. It feels like air (if air were made of fabric). I find that I'm thrifting a lot of shirts with this quality...big... flowing... soft... and in most cases, pastel.
The necklace is a gift from an old co-worker who brought it back after visiting with his family in Egypt. I really like it but haven't worn it in the three years that I've had it. I promise to wear it now that I'm trying all these new things. I bought the belt back in the Jurassic era from Target... seriously, I've had this belt since high school.
And these are my very first pair of thrifted shoes (along with a pair of Seychelles pumps). I got them from Plato's Closet for about eight bucks. I was terrified of thrifted shoes, but I sprayed them over and over with Lysol, and they were barely used. The Ross tag was still on the bottom, and they're actually very comfortable!
