The Final Stand Up...

Hello Wednesday!!!

I hope everyone is doing well. I can hardly believe that the week is almost over-but I'm thankful nonetheless. I always look forward to the weekends. Today's outfit post was inspired by the Trendy Tuesday installment that I created last week. It highlighted polka dots and gingham. I had never thought to put the two patterns together, however, I was quite pleased with how it turned out. 

I wore this 'fit to see Steve Harvey's final stand-up show a couple of weeks ago. Luckily the weather in my area is still a bit cool during the evening so I was able to get away with layering this thrifted sweater over my gingham button up. 

Sweater-Thrifted (Liz Claiborne $.99)
The blue gingham added somewhat of a decent contrast to the bright red. With both of my tops being so bold in color I was undecided about what kind of bottoms to put on. I didn't want anything too drastic so I went with these stonewashed skinnies. I actually love them because they work well with any combination. They're really thin too so they can also be worn as leggings.

Gingham/Skinnies-Thrifted (both $.99)
My old faithful Paisley pumps from Target sealed the deal here!

(SIDENOTE: I'm linking this fit up to Work It Wednesday-head on over to see how others 'work' their Wednesday 'fits)

Now, on to Steve Harvey. He is a complete and utter fool. I went to one of his shows a while back when was in Charlotte, NC. Myself, my mother, and a few others took a 4 hour road trip to see him. That's how much I love him. Not only is he extremely funny but he is an incredible inspiration for me. Each and every morning I listen to his radio show-from 6AM-612AM he hosts an inspirational segment wherein he discusses how his faith in God has allowed him to be the huge success that he is today. He explains how we must make God first in everything that we do in order to receive life in abundance.  His radio show never fails to keep me laughing hysterically on my way to work in the mornings. I'm so glad that I got to see him in concert one last time before he retires from stand up. I'm totally looking forward to his new talk show coming this fall as well. I'm going out to purchase a DV-R just for that reason. I'm a bit obsessed.

Who is the one celebrity (or even non-celebrity) figure that gives you inspiration? The one whom you will always support no matter what? I'm so interested to hear your answers.

Thanks for reading!
