Man, I Feel Like a Woman





I typically don’t say much about my outfits, but this one might be one of my favorite outfits ever. I just feel like a lady in this get-up. I might even start using the words ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ I might stop pushing children down on the streets and stealing from old people. That is how good I feel in this outfit.
I’m kidding, I don’t push children or steal. At least today I don’t.

(Why yes that is a Shania Twain reference in the title. You wanted that song stuck in your head all day, right? You are welcome.)

    LOL, at least it’s a song I like.

    You look lovely (I think you deserve a very ladylike adjective). I love the combination of dots and that pretty floral. I admired that skirt on Anthro’s site, but never bought it. And that bag, so cute!

    Didn’t even make the connection about the song and title until you mentioned it … thanks a lot, Kendi!!! (An alternative title could have been “Damn! I feel like a woman!”

  15. I was just about to tell you how rude it was of you to get that Shania Twain song stuck in my head. Time to go listen to Puerto Rican reggaeton or some Nirvana to get that outta the ol’ noggin. 

    In other news, you look awesome. The colors of your skirt rock and I am seriously impressed with all of the patterns you’ve mixed into this look.

    I’m a (usually) silent reader but had to thank you for this one – I have that skirt and the only thing I love it with so far is a navy tee, red lips and tan heels…. I LOVE this look and it’s gotten me thinking of more creative ways to wear this skirt (that I’m so very in love with – gah, more than anything I’ve ever owned, it’s perfection).

    Not sure if these are brand new pieces, but if not, don’t you love it when you find a brand new outfit amongst clothes you’ve had forever!? That’s my favorite!

    I follow your blog everyday but usually don’t comment.  However I felt like I had to tell you about a coincidence.  For the past two days I have worn one of the same items you have been wearing — first the striped tee and now this skirt!  I loved wearing both of them too, especially this skirt.  I couldn’t resist the temptation to twirl a little in it…  :)
