The Aftermath

Like many of you know, I spent the last two weeks at Los Angeles Fashion Week and its counterpart, Style Fashion Week Los Angeles. Two separate and albeit fashionable events that showcased the latest and greatest in Los Angeles based fashion designers. Week one was put on by Los Angeles Fashion Week and was the more intimate of the two. The designers showed their designs in an up close and personal setting that allowed media to touch and feel the garments. Style Fashion Week Los Angeles was the more boisterous event that was held in a large tent setting. The atmosphere was more party-like and had all the bells and whistles of a typical Hollywood production.

After spending my time moving back and forth to Los Angeles, while still maintaining wife and mommy status...I'm pooped. The aftermath from all the fashion shows has set in and I need a good ol' fashioned break from...would you believe...fashion. Yep, this girl is tired and in no mood to think about clothes. When I got on my way this morning, I realized I hadn't taken any fashion shots since last week. The thought of getting all dolled up just didn't set well with me today. So, I decided to wear my cozy stuff - my favorite men's GAP hoodie, worn in jeans and loafers.



Today's Look: GAP Men's Hooded Sweatshirt; Loft button down; Old Navy Petite Jeans (old); G.H. Bass Studded Loafers (past season. Other options); Loft Aviators (similar)






 

Have a great week friends. I'm headed to breakfast with my husband/photographer.

    1. Aw Lenya, you're so nice. I feel like this is just an everyday look...nothing spectacular. But thank you for the compliment.

    1. Hi Crystelle! It really was, but some of the shows simply weren't my taste, while others were amazing!

  3. Dear Glenda,
    Thank you for reminding us that bloggers are real people! Invigorated by style, but occasionally just wanting to creep out in a comfy hooded sweatshirt and classic loafers.
    I am happy to say that this style suits you, too!
    Glenda, in her off time, still looks chic!
    If you have , you have it.

    1. Thanks Daenel! I'm taking it easy this week. My life takes me to various different types of functions. However this week, I'll spend a great deal of time on the bleachers while cheering on one son who plays football and another who is in marching band :)

  7. Hello Glenda! I have to first say that you do look beautiful and put together in any outfit and this post is proof of that. You are rocking that Gap hoodie like a queen! I am glad you got to enjoy all those fashion events. It is refreshing to know how supportive your husband and family are with you when it comes to your passions. Love and blessings, Jeannette

  9. I love your casual looks. They're not just thrown together without thought. You had a post in here a while back which was casual but I was so inspired by it I think I must have spent 100.00 that week adding cuter casual to my closet. ;)

  12. Wonderful, you look just wonderful, very fashionable. This doesn't look like you are taking a break from fashion, but using fashion to continue as a expression of self awareness. Have a great day.

  16. Ok Glenda, I can really relate to overdosing on fashion. Sometimes you do just need a break. But, I have to say that you made a sweatshirt rock! When you have style you have style no matter what you wear. Great look!! cherie
