Lately, I have been listening to A LOT of 80s music–Genesis, ZZ Top, Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Joan Jett and the list goes on and on. So, naturally, I have been in like a totally rad, neon pink, acid wash and Miami Vice mood *said in my best Valley Girl voice*
When the winter storm hit last week and dumped about 9 inches of snow, my photographer and I took the opportunity to take some awesome outfit photos for the blog. As I was pulling items for the photoshoot, I stumbled upon a pair of funky fine (vintage) Levi’s *cue ZZ Top’s Cheap Sunglasses* that I had TOTALLY forgotten about.
In my 80s state of mind, I embraced the crazy, yellow acid-wash denim and decided to create a wearable wildcard outfit for this week’s Weekly Whistle. In the word’s of my photographer, “Wow…well, Abby–it sure it bright.” *wink*
Now, without further ado, get your 80s groove thang on and check out this week’s Weekly Whistle + outfit details! Also, be sure to pay special, close attention to the fabulous handmade bracelets!
*deep breath* It’s Friday, and I have so much to do in such little time! I feel like the rabbit on Alice in Wonderland *wink* I have school duties tomorrow + a feature story to finish for the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre + a cool thing that I cannot talk a lot about right now that involves the International Storytelling Center! Ahh…okay, let’s get to this week’s Letter From the Editor before I accidently spill any beans *wink*
This week, we welcomed Fall of 2015, and I am so excited! Fall is quite possibly my favorite time of the year because the weather is not too hot and not too cold, it’s just right–just like baby bear’s porridge *wink* One thing I love the most about fall is longer sleeves and taller boots. Growing up in the Deep South, I never had the opportunity to play around with pre-fall apparel; however, now living in Northeast Tennessee, I get to wear things like the OOTW on Weekly Whistle! WOO!
Be sure to stay tuned next week for some more fall awesomeness coming your way *wink* I cannot wait to jump into fall!
This week’s Weekly Whistle is all about the “special something” happening tomorrow…Hm…I wonder what it could be? Of course, I know…but I can’t tell y’all because that would ruin the surprise…Okay, I will give y’all a few hints *wink*
It involves the shirt I am wearing on this Weekly Whistle.
It involves a selfie.
It involves March.
It involves Judd Nelson.
It involves my bedroom. (Note: it does not involve Judd Nelson in my bedroom. *wink*)
How do y’all like the photos that were on the blog today? Hmm? Well, can you believe that they were all taken with my phone–yes, MY PHONE! *gasp* My new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is super awesome, and I could not be happier with the picture quality. Oh, the Galaxy Note 3 will make blogging on the go super easy and fabulous:)
Hello, my fabulouses! This spectacular J.Crew outfit is perfect for taking care of business! Speaking of taking care of business….I think I am going to sing a little tune…I honestly cannot resist.
“You get up every morning from your ‘larm clock’s warning. Take the 8:15 into the city. There’s a whistle up above, and people pushin’, people shovin’, and the girls who try to look pretty….Taking care of business (every day). Taking care of business (every way). I’ve been taking care of business (it’s all mine). Taking care of business and working overtime…” (Taking Care of Business by B.T.O.)
