GEEK CHIC

img_2110

Forgive me for my title.  When I was younger, I was always the smartie pants kiddo in the room.  I consistently was at the top of my class and was as geeky as could be.  However, I never wanted to be labeled as such.  The funny thing is, now that I’m much older, I really enjoy being nerdy at times.  In fact, this past week while I was at a work conference, one of the sessions that we were invited to attend among many others was a neuroscience class.  You all would have laughed at how excited I got!  You could have sworn that it was Christmas and I had just unwrapped the best present.  My co-workers were super sweet about it, but needless to say, I went and geeked out on my own for that session!  It’s funny to see how our perceptions change as time goes on.  What I used to despise about myself is now one of the things that I really value the most.  Anyone ever notice this in their lives as well?

That being said, my nerdy side erupted again when I went to the eye doctor and was told that I needed to wear glasses for certain activities.  I was beyond thrilled to get to pick out glasses.  I am so thankful that I don’t have to wear them all day long.  However, I so enjoy getting to put them on!  These are Chanel and have the cutest chain detailing on the arms.  They swept me off my feet.

So, onto the outfit.

 I adore blazers.  Seriously.  I cannot get enough.  This one is more than likely the best one in my closet.  It’s made of sweater like material.  The collar on it stands up and is serious perfection.  It’s comfy, cozy, and just plain chic!  It’s flying off the store’s shelves…so if you love it, run!

This bag is a stunner.  PERIOD.  The calf hair leopard is dreamy and the buttery leather is so soft that you won’t be able to take your hands off of it!  It’s a statement maker and really helps to give your outfits that extra bit of sass that we all need!

Finally, we need to have a quick little chat about these booties.  UPDATE:  These beauties  are 20% OFF WITH CODE:  SIGNATURE.  I am a boot connoisseur if I do say so myself!  I have a serious weak spot for them.  BUT these are the best ones.  The side detailing and the cognac color are the best I’ve ever seen.  I adore them with my whole heart.  I can’t wait to slip them on my feet again!

Happy Thursday Eve!

xoxo,

Abbie

    You’re most definitely not that geek I first met in a wheelchair anymore! We geeked out together my friend. You’ve turned out to be such a beautiful, kind, and successful woman. I will never forget all the kind things you and your family did for me.
