Tough Girl

Posted on: December 6, 2012

I am such a feminine woman most of the time, but every once in awhile I really like to channel my inner tough girl, rock star… That reminds me of one of my favorite songs as a teenager by REO Speedwagon. “Tough Guys”.  For those of you not blessed with ADD you may not get the tough girl connection to that song, but an ADD brain can connect any two things and that one was close enough to make sense… You should see my husband scratch his head and ask, “how did you make that leap?”


I think for every woman feeling tough involves different things, for me it’s leather and this time snakeskin jeggings…

I really love my new burgundy moto jacket that I purchased recently from Forever 21.  I chose the burgundy instead of black because the black just didn’t feel like me and felt more harsh.  This color just felt right.  I also liked a green one I saw as well and really wavered.  Burgundy won out since I don’t have as much of that color in my wardrobe as I would like.


This tassel necklace is from Avon and I am not sure if it is still available because I purchased it several months ago and if my memory serves me correctly it was out of a clearance catalog.  I hope to get a lot of use out of this necklace because I love the length and it does a lot to fill in the space and is a good way to lengthen my petite body.  I think anything that creates that long vertical line helps, which is why I am so partial to scarfs.

IMG_0780I felt so good in this outfit and have real love for these boots.  They are by Twiggy London via HSN.  I regret not taking a photo to show you the purple bottom on these.  They are fur lined so really for colder weather.   The best part about wearing this outfit was when my 17 year old told me he wouldn’t be embarrassed if he ran into a friend while we were out shopping…It doesn’t take much to embarrass our children, so I had to ask…

I wear sunglasses a lot as my eyes are light and sun sensitive and can lead to headaches very easily…

Gratitude:  I am grateful for the holiday season and the chance to spend quality time with my children.   I am grateful for the fun of putting up the tree with Nicholas for the first time (something Ashley and I traditionally have done)….I am grateful for my newfound energy to kick up the exercise and my commitment to reaching goal weight. Today I am traveling to Farmville, VA to pick my daughter up from Longwood University for winter break and I am grateful for the road trip with my husband and sons, as well as the beginning of several weeks with my daughter!  

Dear Readers your comments are welcomed and greatly appreciated..

My 17 year old daughter keeps me in check too! Another great outfit! Love the jacket!!!

Just a few more years and the kids won’t be around to embarrass ….that idea both makes me smile and frown…

I really love this look! You are oozing some serious rock star attitude 🙂 The burgundy leather coat was a great choice. It’s gorgeous! I love a good rocker look every now and then. I like to wear a concert tee, jeans, a blazer and heels. Heather

The great part of being a woman is our right to go from super feminine to masculine and everything in between.
