Setting the Mood: Get It, Sporty.
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

workout fashionThe other day I received a message asking how to get abs like mine.  I’m not sure if she was expecting some magical answer like, “I house a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos dipped in Cool Whip before bed every night,” but she seemed a bit bummed out when I answered instead, “Pilates, yoga, and running.”  This is not another installment of “You Did Not Eat That.”  I actually do spend time sweating and while I did partake in National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, I am cognizant of what I put into my body on a regular basis.  I don’t do it because I want to be thin, though that is a welcome side effect, I do it because I actually feel better when I’m not bombarding my intestines with ingredients I can’t pronounce… except for the occasional glass of wine from some far corner of the Earth that I just point to on the menu and smile.  Sure, when I was in college I could sit down in front of the TV with a raging hangover and feed my frame an entire pizza without seeing the effects.  But seeing as I’m no longer wielding a fake ID from Tennessee, my metabolism has given me the middle finger and shopping is most certainly not my cardio.

Setting the Mood: Who Wears the Pants?
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

palazzo pants patternHigh summer is probably not the time you think most of waking up, stretching those lanky limbs, and slipping into a pair of slacks.  Much to many of my friends’ chagrin, my main motive when choosing my daily attire is to cover as little as possible with the thinnest layer of fabric conceivable all without contracting a ticket for public indecency.  The caveat in all of this is my phobia of making bodily contact with many of the publicly shared spaces, ie., rash inducing velour seats of the Jitney descent or the unidentifiable, indestructible material of taxi cab cushions. Therefore, in the fear of revisiting a middle school incident of ring worm, there are times when covering up my gams is an absolute must.  Fortunately, this summer, there are plenty of pants that don’t fall under the suffocating category of denim.  Breezy wide leg pants in plenty of patterns are perfect for pairing with croptops and keeping the Center of Disease Control slightly less busy.  And really, what’s the purpose of a pants of dance of if you’ve got no pants to lose?

Setting the Mood: Daddy Issues
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

father daughter duosOne of the most important relationships a woman will ever have is the one she has with her father.  Now, I realize that I have been especially blessed because not only do I have a father to speak of, but I have a father who is one of the kindest, smartest, most loving people on this planet.  Really the only daddy issues I have are knowing what it feels like to be loved and respected by a man.  Because I know that I am at an advantage having someone like Dick Smith a mere telephone call away at any time, I loan him out to a lot of my friends, which he is more than happy to do.  Basically, if my dad isn’t following you on Instagram, you’re doing something wrong.  So, here’s to all the dads of the world- whether he’s your dad, you baby’s daddy, or father to your four legged friend.

Setting the Mood: Double Trouble
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

twins geminiI woke up the other day and somehow it had become June.  I feel as though I’d been waxing poetic for summer for so many months it was startling when it actually arrived.  It’s kind of like wanting and wishing for something and then being freaked out when you finally get it.  The story of my life.  I’m no Susan Miller, but I do know that most of this month is dedicated to the Geminis of the zodiac and they are known for being the “yin and the yang,” the twins of the astrological calendar.  A self proclaimed style schizophrenic, I find there’s nothing better than scoring something you can wear in more ways than one and we all know I love to double up on things I like.  In most cases, sans pimples and ex-boyfriends in the same bar, two is always better than one.

Setting the Mood: Beauty Sleep
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

fashion-sleeping-beautyFun fact: I’m narcoleptic.  Okay, maybe not clinically speaking, but show me a pillow and I’ll show you a coma.  I’m probably one of four people who has ever fallen asleep in Las Vegas… at a nightclub… with a giant costumed Elmo dancing right above her head.  If I were to be a fairytale princess, I would undoubtedly be Sleeping Beauty.  As a matter of fact, I should be much more beautiful due to the amount of beauty sleep I’ve amassed over the years.  I once had a boyfriend who told me that he was comforted by how restfully I slept.  He thought it meant I had a clear conscience.  Ha.  And while I’ve fallen asleep on dates forcing them to leave their phone numbers on tabloid covers and scraps of  napkin, my narcolepsy has saved me from many a late night pizza delivery.  So, my unpredictable sleep patterns aren’t all bad as long as you don’t mind my snoring.
