Orange Crush

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday. After seeing some of the photos on Essence.com of celebrities at the Kentucky Derby and reading Facebook status updates about the hats the ladies were crushing on I HAD to post these photos.

I wore this ensemble to the Sorority’s hat tea. I felt very First Lady-ish. Believe it or not I am so not a fan of hats. It took me two days to find this one.  Now I’m convinced I should marry a Prince and wear hats on special occasions.

Can we also note how great my arms look? I haven’t worked out in a month and look forward to getting back on my game but these photos really show off the improvements since I started attending aerobics at my church. Goes to show exercise is for anyone. My former mindset was I’m already slim and I don’t need to workout. Once I started I noticed a difference in how I felt throughout the day and the toning of my body. Y’all know I love the beach so I gotta be tight and right. Summer break is less than 25 days away!! 

I’m off to eat before heading off to church. We are having our annual spring conference this week. Alive 2012 featuring some dynamic guest speakers. You can tune in online at www.winnerstoday.net.

To show my appreciation for you sticking around during my absence I’ll be posting a giveaway in the next few days featuring some of my favorite things.

I love and appreciate you for it!

oh darling. I just love hats. I love to collect vintage pillbox hats and such. It just makes you look so ladylike and sophisticated when you are in the RIGHT hat. I love teas in the spring also. The perfect place for hats. I am attending one on Saturday!

Orange is such a great color on you! I have always wanted to go to the Derby. I went to a Derby event and wore a big hat and a cute dress last year. It was a lot of fun. I love your dress and hat.
