Pow! Pow! The past few weeks have been a blast...Balancing everything is hard, but when isn't it?! Live Life! Have fun! Go Crazy! Lola and Fufu is not just about fashion, its about having fun, letting your hair down and being fabulous while you do it! Rock on Peeps ;)
Rain Rain Go Away... and never come back again! I hate being outside when it's raining! Fufu and I had fabulous plans to end off our weekend, only to realize when we got downstairs that it was RAINING! We should not have to endure rain in the winter, it just doesn't seem fair. But we took pictures of our outfits anyways! A little rain never stops a photo op. I recently purchased this adorable sweater from Target and couldn't resist matching this cutesy mint piece with my leather skirt. I love the contrast. Check me out!
Love Lola :)

So now that we've both found jobs it's been really interesting to see the different "wardrobe battles" that we go through when trying to piece together our work attire. As she's mentioned, Lola's job is very corporate, so she is struggling with being fabulous but still keeping it appropriate. Her 6inch stilettos and crop tops just won't work for the corporate world, haha. And me on the other hand, I work at an advertising agency, so it's really laid back, a little more casual than business casual. We basically can't wear jeans, and you know the normal stuff that you can't wear to most jobs like shorts, tanks, tees, etc., but anything else is pretty acceptable. I love my job, the atmosphere and most of all the laid back dress code, but sometimes it's really hard for me to keep my outfits casual with out going too "FUFU fierce" lol. I definitely can't reach for my chunky heels and funky accessories anymore, but I have to play more with my blazers and colored pants. Oh and by the way, it snowed yesterday, so now I gotta figure out how to keep warm and still be "FUFU Fierce." Ay yi yi, the struggle continues...
This is how we wear green, black and white. These are great examples of work appropriate outfits for us both.
Fall has always been my favorite season. In West Palm Beach I loved it because the days were cooler and drier. It was no longer a scorching 90 to 100 degrees, but the days were beautiful high 70s to low 80s. Best of all it doesn't rain so much and it is never too cool to go the beach. Now that I am in NYC, I'm so appreciative to experience a real Autumn. Where the fall leaves gradual change colors and gracefully shed from the trees above. It's an amazing phenomenon to witness. The days are getting colder and shorter but I dont mind it at all, becuase fall is also my favorite season for fashion. I love dressing for fall, where I can layer up and be warm enough that I am free from lugging around my heavy and pesky winter coats, that's always such a drag.
