Hope you are having a terrific Thursday. I missed yesterday's post because I was busy doing two things applying for jobs and I'm taking the HIV/AIDS 500 and 501 course offered through the county's health department for a grassroots organization launching soon to address women and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Stay tuned for a blog post. In the meantime visit wemakethechange.org to get more information. The component I will be helping to launch is called Sisters Organizing to Survive.
I wanted to be cute even though I was sitting in a conference room all day. My summer is about to end and one thing I won't miss is not getting dressed. I love dressing up! I found these Wrangler high waisted jeans at Goodwill. The first time I saw them they were $8 but I knew Tuesdays was student discount day.
So what did I do? I hid them in the store, hoping they would be there the next day. Sadly, they were not. The clerks do a sweep and put everything back out on the floor. But what I did as a second safety measure was roll up one of the pant legs so I could find them. #Ireallywantedthesejeans I woke my son up early the next morning, told him to grab his student ID and raced to my local Goodwill.. And I'm happy I did!
Am I the only one who will do the most to snag a thrifted treasure?
It's almost the weekend. What do you have planned?

I posted this tweet on Twitter today and had not yet figured out what today's Friday fashion post would be about.
If you don't know ASOS had a summer sale and I took advantage of it. I've always worn long maxi skirts and recently started eyeing the midi.
What separates the two are the lengths. A maxi hits the floor while a midi grazes you at the knee or right below. Because I've become booed up with Curves and Confidence, I'm open to trying new things. One of those things in terms of style is various skirt lengths.
I had a luncheon at a country clubhouse last Saturday to prepare for the sororial year (I'm a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated!) and felt like a polished but summer casual look would be appropriate. South Fla is hot right now and too much will leave me sweating like a sinner during altar call.
So I paired my new gray skirt with a tee, statement necklace and Payless shoes. For me it was muy perfecto!
Check out my midi skirt board on Pinterest to see how to style this uuuhhhhhmazing piece.
Are you a fan of the midi?
Happy Friday divas and divamom!

P.S. My 15 yo son is also doing the challenge with me. He’s read this book before as well for our family Bible study time. He has a Revolution Bible for teen guys. Your kids can participate. Go for it!
