Style Diary – Hoodies

Hoodies in the Rain


What’s not to love about hoodies.  They are soft, warm and comfortable.  And this season, it looks like we can pretty much throw one on over whatever we are wearing and look “fashionable”.  To that I say…heck, yes.

Where to Wear?

If you throw on a hoodie over a skirt, as shown above, then wear it wherever you’d like.  Well, almost wherever.  I probably would not wear a hoodie to work, church, a wedding, or any other formal occasion.  But, for all your casual events, why not?

Investment Pieces

That skirt is so cute, I am adding it in the investment pieces.  The shoes, watch, and of course that gorgeous umbrella. (yes, umbrellas can be gorgeous and an investment piece).


It’s Friday.  You made it through the week.  Good for you.  I have to ask, did you pick out your outfits for the week?  If so, how did it work out for you? 

This weekend, if it is cool where you live, throw on that hoodie, lay back, and  relax.  You deserve it.  You’ve worked hard this week.  I am proud of you and your amazing work ethic.  Nice job, my friends. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Fondly, Sonya

Casual Friday Look 2

This time, we have changed the color palette and paired the jeans with a white tee, a blazer and flats.  We all probably have these items in our closet, right?

Adding the tee and flats makes this outfit look a bit more casual than yesterday’s look.  The blazer and structured purse balance the look to make it more work appropriate.

Happy work day everyone.

Work Week – Lace and Tomato

Work Week - Lace and Tomato


According to my new Nordstrom’s catalog, tomato is a hot color for Fall, 2015.  In fact all hues from the seventies are “hot” for fall.  I’m glad, actually, because I love all of the seventies colors – I just don’t care to wear all of them together in one outfit.  That style is a bit too bold for my taste – however, when worn by the right individual, it looks chic and confident.

What do y’all think of the seventies colors?

Lace at Work

Lace is so feminine and classy.  I love lace and try to find ways to wear it to the office.  In this outfit, the tomato blazer takes some of the focus away from the lace skirt and makes the entire outfit appear conservative and work appropriate.  Of course, if you work in a less formal office, wear lace any way you like.

Where to Wear

Obviously, this is a great outfit for work.  It can also be worn to church, brunch, dinner, the theater, symphony, and any number of occasions.  The pencil skirt, blazer and pumps formula works pretty well in most social settings, don’t you think?
