First -- did you muses see me on the Independent Fashion Bloggers website last week? I was interviewed and featured as a blogger spotlight.
If you like this look, then you're definitely going to love Wednesday's post. Hint: it's all about the fabulous sleeve trends that I've seen all over social media, which includes elbow zips, ruffles and more. There's an off-shoulder cut-out sleeve top that I'm featuring that you're going to go ga-ga over!
Did any of you see my Instastory when I said how UPS said USPS had my package, and USPS said UPS had my package? Well, after not knowing where my package was for about four days, I finally got my hands on my items from Express, which included both this elbow zip sweater and these asymmetric cut jeans. Where last Monday's outfit post was very in your face and bold, this look is definitely more of my go-to style. But I'm happy that you all liked that look, and that we both believe that there's a place for both styles on the Muse.
Last week I also took a last-minute trip back to south Florida for family. It was my first time just getting a call and then getting on a plane the same day. Have any of you done that before? Every time I visit south Florida, I always see it differently. On the one hand, I am immediately reminded of how ratchet Florida can be some times. All the Florida Man memes and jokes that people make about this state are true on the right days and at the right times. But I also find that there are certain things that I really still love about the state. I love that the high was 81 and the low was 63 in the middle of January. I love that when I walked outside at night I didn't need a jacket and the weather was perfect.
I love that I could see cruise ships blend into the downtown skyscrapers when driving on the highways (highways, not freeways). And I love that -- at least in south Florida -- people are really starting to embrace organic grocery stores, eclectic coffee shops and unique, local delights. But I really don't miss the crazy Florida drivers. Ratchet, crazy-ass, merge without a care Floridians. And I can totally say that because I grew up in Florida and the love/hate relationship is genuine.
