S/S 2011 Trend Careerwear--Michelle Obama Inspired

30 May 2011
Good morning again chicklets,

Like I said before I decided to put together a board inspired by one of Michelle Obama's outfits.

I have come up with a new and improved format for my blog and how I will post every day because what I want is to empower my readers to be the best they can be and always be dressed for success in any circumstance. I am all about empowerment. This makes this blog a bit different from the other beauty and fashion blogs and I like it that way. In fact it is more of a lifestyle blog because I will also be talking about travel, health and skin care. My goal is to drag you all kicking and screaming fashionably into the 21st century and hope that you enjoy the ride. Now mind you, you all have your own personal style and I will be presenting what is currently on trend and you decide how to incorporate it into your style. I hope that what I put together will inspire you and bring you back daily to read or see what I have put together.

At the moment I have gained weight but once I get the weight off and start shopping again I will be taking pics of my outfits for you to see. This week I will also begin doing makeup tutorials and I will go back over a few of the posts to recreate the looks that I put together. Those will go up on my Youtube page so be on the look out for that. So without further ado, here is today's Michelle O inspired ensemble. I love how she uses cardigans in place of suit jackets to update the office look. Have a great and happy holiday.
