My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Trends I Miss!

There's been a lot of talk about the current fashions on the blogs lately, and I just wanted to add my two cents.. lol

I miss... SLEEVES!!! Why is everything so short sleeved now, or even sleeveless? Give me a nice 3/4 sleeve top and I'm a happy camper.

I miss... mid rise jeans! The low rise ones look alright on me, but if I buy them to fit me properly, ie. not too baggy, then I get one of those muffin tops.... EWW! That's enough to have me take 2 steps back in my body image reform right there! lol

I miss... chunky heels. I'm not graceful.. never have been. And I can't wear those little tiny heels if i want to keep my ankles in their nice, not broken state. I've tried... I really have. But, I do too much walking, and I don't think they can keep me upright for very long!

I also love sleeves, especially as I have lost weight as I need something to keep the excess skin looking firmer. Nothing like looking fabulous and trying to topple on heals that are either too high or too pointy!!! Hopefully you find some chunky stylts (that are stylish) soon

I miss them all! The long sleeves, the jeans, even the chunky heels! See why I hate shopping so much?

We'll find something. Hopefully soon!

I don't have an issue with short sleeves but what are these newfangled short sleeves that leaves your entire upper arm pretty much hanging out? I'm sure they have a name, other than "Bloody useless" but you know what I mean.

I don't do heels. Ever. At all. Most of the time you will find me in my beloved Avia sneakers!
