What I'm Wearing Today...


I've been feeling really crappy all week with a migraine that would not let up.  I believe the cause of it was do to the low barometric pressure.  We had nasty tornado weather yesterday.  It was warm, humid and dreary.  The temperature dropped last night and created a beautiful fall day.  I decided that the sun and brisk air was best for what ailed me.
I wore my black, slim-fit Simplicity 2315 pants, with a Missoni for Target t-shirt, Gap denim jacket and Steve Madden wedges.
I love the zipper details of my pants.  And this is the first time I've worn these shoes for an entire day and they're extremely comfortable.
Even though everything in me said to stay home and "take to the bed", I got dressed and got out (and bought some sale patterns... hehe!).  Sun and retail therapy... it's good for what ails you!

  7. You look so chic! The ankle zippers are a fabulous touch. So glad the migraine let up. Have you ever been to a migraine specialist? Maybe there is something you could get that would be helpful next time.

  8. I don't feel I have a need to go see a specialist. I don't have migraines that often. But when I do... Whew! Thanks!

  15. It's a pattern you had to be looking for. You know how uninspiring the envelopes can be. Thanks!

  16. Hey Ms. Erica,
    I am a fellow natural hair wearing, fashionista who shares your taste in shoes. I have those same shoes...love them! While I do more refashioning, I am starting to spend more time on honing my sewing skills. You are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your journey. Love the outfit and most importantly I'm glad your feeling better.
