March's celeb style to steal is Kerry Washington's (p. 46). You may know her as Ray Charles' wife in Ray or as the blind woman in Fantastic Four. But movie career notwithstanding, the girl's got style.
Suggestion: Pair a "graphic color-block dress" with nude or metallic shoe. Long sparkly earrings and a clutch.
My adaptation: A purple dress with graphic stripe down the middle and detailed piping cinching the waist. I teachered up the outfit so I can get away with wearing it to school.
Suggestion: Wear a big stripy top with skinny jeans and ankle boots. My friend Kristin was wearing this EXACT outfit when we went to Hunger Games last Thursday, but I totally forgot to take a photo of her. Guess I was too busy comparing the book with the movie. Like, how the book's hounds were way better than the movie's version. The movie didn't even talk about how they melded the hounds DNA with that of the fallen tributes. My morbid fascination was disappointed.
My adaptation: I don't own skinny jeans, but I do own leggings. Most of my shirts are fitted too and I don't own ankle boots, so this was quite the challenge. I used my husbands' grey button up and a yellow bag that I got for my birthday last year. I rather like how it turned out. VERY comfy too.
Suggestion: Juxtapose a floral print with leopard print clutch and bold shoes.
My adaptation: I didn't have any 80's floral, so I used this instead. It's a stretch, I know, but oh well. The shoes are still red. My purse isn't a leopard print clutch, obviously, but it is navy faux snakeskin one.
Diet wise, I've been trying to kick sugar again. I'm not doing so great. I had strep throat last week and workouts have taken a back burner to getting kicking the sore throat. I did go to the Festival of Colors last Saturday, so I could cover it for the paper, it ended up being a workout though, b/c all the shuttles were full and I had to carry my 40lbs son on my back for miles back to my car. The day after, my body hurt all over, like the how you feel after snowboarding for the first time of the season.
Plus, it's teacher appreciation week. What does that mean? The PTA gives us sugary treats several times during the week. Today, I ate a glazed doughnut shaped like a foot. It had little candy toenails--giving it the look of a blue pedicure. Seems wrong on so many levels. I feel sick.
