My Fav White Tank

My Fav White Tank

Ok, it is no secret.
I have said it a hundred times before.
I can not live without plain white “wife beater” tanks.
So today I decided to do the “Wife Beater” three ways-
Work, Weekend and Nights
For work (of course), you need a cardi or a blazer.
For weekend, show some skin and enjoy the sun.
For nights, the tank/blazer combo is literally my go-to outfit
add a sexy pair of skinnies and an awesome shoe and you are out the door!
All of these pieces are interchangeable, switch it up!
Wear the shorts out at night with the blazer.
Wear the hi-lo skirt out to lunch with the girls.
I could go on and on….are you tired of me yet?
XO,
Leslie
Happy Shopping
Fashionable CHICKs
Oh, look who greeted me this morning on my way to work! My favorite CHICKs! If you don’t know this already, these girls right here are why my blog is named Fashionable CHICKs! These are my babies!

KFC and Ralph – Yes, they are girls but with boy names!

Happy Holiday Weekend CHICKs

Woot Woot, I love a three day weekend!
I am heading South for the weekend right into a tropical storm but you can’t rain on this CHICKs Parade!
I am so happy to see friends and family and celebrate my brother’s upcoming wedding!
No American holiday is complete without some Stars and Stripes-
Show your true colors, Nautical Stripes are a wardrobe must!
And if you don’t like stripes just plain ‘ole red, white and blue will do!

Stars and Stripes

Happy Shopping and Safe Travels!

Summer Hat Love.

I love hats.
Especially a great straw hat in the summer.
Mine are looking slightly tattered and torn so time to re-invest!
I found a few on Pinterest in the wee hours of the morning this morning when I was still wide awake until 445 am!

Argh!
In addition to the hat, this is a great summer look. Especially when traveling.
I cant live without a pair of white cotton pants.

To keep all the harmful rays off!
Must have a cool pool hat!
CHICKs, the baseball hats DO NOT DO THE TRICK.

Great for a day of lunch and shopping.

And this one I love, she looks like she is either at a vineyard or a farm.
Ill take both! Classic Style.
A Must have!

Things I’m Afraid to Tell You

If you are a crazy blogger stalker like I am, you have probably seen the latest trend.
Bloggers posting about 
Things I’m Afraid toTell You


So I thought I would follow suit.
1. 
 I sometimes change clothes 5-10 times before I leave the house.
I know this is crazy and I think “who is looking at me anyway!” but…
I am a little crazy over aesthetics. If every little detail does not seem right, even down to my underwear I have to change. And in addition to this problem, changing 5-10 times creates havoc on your closet when you are trying to get out of the door. Sometimes it can look like a bomb went off.
2.
I am the worst when it comes to keeping in touch. My friends will agree. I miss them, I think about them but I can’t seem to ever pick up the phone. Good news is, when we see each other it’s like we were never apart. You know who you are girls. I promise I truly value our lifelong friendship.
3.
I am a terrible procrastinator! I feel crippled by duties that must get done by a certain deadline.
Although, some of my most creative work has been done at two o’clock in the morning.
Creative minds thrive on a last minute rush.
4.
I hate confrontation. I run from it at all cost. This is a huge problem because I think I get taken advantage of most of the time. It is easier for me to say yes and move on.
I think in my 40’s I am going to become a BITCH! Excuse my language but the bitchy ones always seem to get their way and succeed.
I need to put that on my TO DO List for sure.
5.
I hate to close the door when I go to the bathroom.
Ok, I said it. 
I don’t know what it is but I feel trapped or something.  
Maybe it is laziness, one extra step, but I hate it. 
6.
I HATE those stickers on the backs of cars that represent the family.
Dad, Mom, Brother, Sister, Dog, Cat
You know the ones that sometimes have Mickey Ears on them.
Come on people!

Happy Friday!

One of my dearest friends has a birthday next week
It may or may not be a big one, I’ll never tell!
She is off to Paris in a couple of weeks to celebrate with her sister.
Soooo, I couldn’t resist….
I can pretend I am going, right?
It reminds me of “Always the bridesmaid, Never the bride.”
My motto should be…
“Always the stylist, never the styled!”
So I created a couple of looks that can be mixed up to create a bunch of different outfits.
Easy outfits that can go from day to night with the switch of a couple of accessories and shoes.
Have a Wonderful Day Hil!
We love you and you deserve to have the time of your life!
Ayez un merveilleux voyage,
XOXO

To All My Momma Hens

I know this is a couple days late, sorry!Where do I begin? I am so thankful for my mother(s) and I am so thankful to be a mother.

Now that I am a mother, I should just apologize for-
not listening…
not cleaning up after myself…
not wanting to take a bath…
not eating my food…
always wanting you to buy me something…
never asking you if you need help…
never telling you thank you for helping me with my projects, doing to my laundry, making my bed, taking care of me when I am sick, having my rowdy friends over, forgiving me when I make a bad grade…
should I go on?

 

To my mother,
Thank you for all you do. I love you from the bottom of my heart. You taught me to be a lady, to always smile and hold my head high even during my toughest days. You taught me to be creative. You taught me to be strong and independent. And most importantly you taught me how to love and how to be a mother. Thank you.
To my Mother in Law Kitty,
Thank you for all you do, I am so lucky to have you. Thank you for trying your hardest to teach me how to cook. Even though I am still terrible, it is not from lack of trying I promise. Let’s hope AR follows in your footsteps and not mine!
To Debber,
I know I haven’t always been the easiest step daughter to deal with but I have truly enjoyed how our relationship has evolved. Please know that I thank you for loving and taking care of a very important person in my life, my father. You have inspired me to be a professional woman and I am truly honored to call you my family.
To Mudder,
Although you are looking over me in heaven, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you. You were and are so important in my life. And I have say such a fashion trend setter! I used to covet your handbag and shoe collection. I wonder where I got that obsession from? I thank God everyday that you were such a presence in my life. I miss you dearly.
To Mimi,
Always a southern lady, always dressed, always polite, always graceful.
Thank you for teaching me all of these attributes and many more.
(And my love of Peppermint Patties and Diet Coke!) 

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
XOXO,
Fashionable HEN
and lover of my 3 CHICKs
I had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
Thank you.

 

ahhhhh, it is here.

It’s Friday CHICKs!
I have had a great week but so glad the weekend is here.
I attended a Digital Marketing Conference so I apologize for being absent but the good news is
I had a great time, met some really cool people including the Founder of Gilt Group, and learned a lot!
I do have some exciting news.
I’m getting closer to my new website launch.
My friends Ish and Adrian at The Atlanta Brand are working away and I know it is going to be
Off The Charts!

Here is a small sneak peak from one of our photo shoots.

Latest Obsession

Latest Obsession

I’m borderline stalkerish with this CHICK.
I want everything in her summer collection. 
I love the California simplicity.
I want to meet her. 
I read where she lives near the beach and rides her bike everywhere.
 Her mother is a movie producer. 
She is beautiful and sexy.
And just plan cool! 
Great line, check it out!
XOXO,
