Short + Polo Shirts and keeping it Real.

Hello Loves. How was your Monday? How was your weekend? I did a little shopping today and purchased some beautiful dresses for Vivian and a couple of Joe Fresh items for myself. Did you do any shopping this weekend? What did you get? There sure were a lot of sales out there with Columbus day being today. On top of all that, the weather was beautiful. It was warm enough yet a little breezy. The sun was out.

I am showing you 2 very simple Outfits with Shorts & Polo Shirts today. They were both worn around home and the second Outfit was worn for shopping at Wal Mart, too. Yes, I am a Fashion Blogger. I am a Woman. I love Style. I Love Fashion. I love Blogging about Fashion & Clothes. I love Shopping. But I am also a Human Being. I am a Mom, a stay-at-home Mom even. So sometimes super simple is the way I go. These Outfits are super simple by blogger standard but they are me just as much as my Pencil Skirts, Leather Pants, Flirty Dresses & Girly Blouses. Because sometimes I care more about Comfort than the latest Trends. Today I am keeping it Real. And the REAL ME wears Shorts, Polo Shirts, Flip-Flops and doesn't care about whether it is stylish or not. The REAL ME pulls her hair in a bun with a clip and doesn't wear make-up sometimes. I have some questions for you ladies. Do you show all or almost all of your Outfits on the blog, including those on your casual days? Do you show your 'Mom' or 'Running Errands' Outfits, or those that are super casual like I am dressed today? Or does having a Fashion Blog changed your every-day look or changed your mind about not having to show those not so blog-worthy Outfits? Keep it real & tell me the truth. Thank you. =)

Anyway, both of these Outfits feature Shorts & Polo Shirts. I must have been a Preppy Child in my earlier life, because digging through my huge closet and lots of drawers here in USA, I realized I purchased/owned several Polo Shirts. Now that I look at them I like them for the most [art (paired with the right thing) but I do not need them all. After wearing both of these, I decided to let them go, because they fit a little bit too snug & too short for my body & my taste. I was gonna let go of my Baby Blue Shorts from Abercrombie, too (yes, I have had them for at least a decade), but they still fit and they make my butt look good, so I kept them. The Cobalt Shorts with the Palm Trees that I purchased earlier this Summer, I love, however. And yes, both of these Outfits were worn on some rather hot October days so I got more Hot Pink for you. What do you think?
