It's that time of year to play dress up again. I am always so last minute about my Halloween costume.. We're 4 days away and I'm still not sure what to be! In honor of Halloween, I'm excited to share with you the first of our Alter Ego series. This series could not have been possible without this amazing team. They are my favorite friends to work with! Feng - Photographer, Jon - Videographer, Ariana - Stylist, Gina - Hair, Josh - Makeup. These guys are top notch and the top of their industries. I absolutely LOVE working with them. I hope you like this series in which I call The Widow. If you haven't figured out your Halloween costume yet, I hope this sparks some creativity!
Every morning I check the weather app and plan out my outfit according to how the weather's going to change throughout the day. Recently it's been in the 90s, then the 60s, then sunny, and now it's storming... I'm having a hard time dressing for the right weather! Yesterday, it said it was going to storm, but it was blue skies, so I celebrated with this spring/summer suede and leather outfit featuring this super soft tank from MinkPink.
I don't wear tights much because sometimes they're too tight in the waist and I like to eat with loose clothing so I can scarf down a feast without any restrictions. But I couldn't resist in taking up Trendy Legs collaboration proposal to style my own outfit with a funky pair of tights. Here's me channeling my inner 80s sass!
There's a lot of talk on the interwebs about how to spell the abbreviated version of casual. Is it "Cazj", "Cas'", "Cazh"...? It boggles my mind every time. I even looked it up on google and checked out 3 websites to see what people think just so I could use "Keepin it Cazj" for my title of this post! Buzzfeed did a poll and had their audience vote for which way was the best, and "Cas'" won. All of this debate, reading and wasted time just to tell you that I'm wearing this plaid dress from Madewell to keep it casual on the weekends. yay.
Ever since 2016 rolled along, it's been back to business - which at this time of year means back to back meetings at my 9 to 6, weekend work trips, late night Vibrvncy meetings, recovering from jetlag, less sleep, more junk, and less time to blog. My goal in January was to cook more (that didn't happen). My second goal was to work out more (does doing the elliptical for 20 minutes 3 times a week count?). My third goal was to get my new site design up and running (3 months later, still working on it). In my survival of all these first world problems, comfortable black and white outfits have been my staple set. Comfortable means goodbye to non-stretchy, tight-fitted, high waisted jeans, and hello to everything that feels like pjs but still look put together and professional. Don't worry jeans, I'll be back for you soon.
