Making My Own Lyrics Up

I’m gonna toot my own horn right now, so just sit back and listen. I am incredibly skilled at making my own lyrics up to songs. I don’t mean that I sing along to the radio and sing totally wrong words to the original lyrics (although I do that too). I mean that I love making up new song lyrics to popular songs a’la Weird Al Yankovic or Wayne Brady on Whose Line Is It Anyways?

It’s hard to believe that Fall is here already. Especially round these parts where cool weather feels like it’ll never come. To kick start this wonderful season of holidays, cinnamon smelling things, pumpkin everything, sweaters, boots and more, I thought we’d have a little challenge.

Wearing a blouse or shirt over a dress is a great way to not only add layers, but it’s also a perfect way to mix textures and/or patterns. Plus, it might help you get out a fashion rut or find a new use for some articles of clothing you’ve had hanging in your closet for a long time.

I want you to put together an outfit with a blouse, shirt or vest over a dress over the next two weeks and email me a picture of your lovely self at If you’re okay with me sharing your creation, I’ll be posting readers awesome outfits on Friday, October 3rd, 2014. If you’d like, you could also take a pic and post it on instagram and hashtag it #blouseoverdresschallenge.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!! 🙂

In my very naive bubble, I had no idea that there were radio edit versions of songs and just figured a lot of songs included “ish” in their lyrics. Duh. I am NOT a fan of extensive and unnecessary cussing, especially the “F” word. And it got me thinking, wouldn’t it be amazing if we could “radio edit” everything? Like there was a setting for everyone’s life and you could just turn it on and then you wouldn’t have to listen to foul mouths around you. Or you could set it for your kids, so that you could protect their precious ears? That would be fantastic.
