Florida’s Finest Guest Blogging Series: Rule Breaker by A Diva Mom

One of the MOST beautiful things about where Ashley and I live is the weather. For anyone who has visited South Florida during the winter months will agree that being able to wear skirts and open toed shoes 365 is a reward in itself.

We do get a few days of chilly weather and I race to wear my gorgeous leather boots but rarely and so I take full advantage of the fact that we don’t have seasons so I don’t follow color rules.

The Sunday these were taken the weather was 200% perfection. I’ve read fashion rules that suggest if you are a bit heavy in hips like I am even though I’m tiny everywhere else full skirts can look fuller. Here’s another place I don’t follow rules. I love full, flirty floral printed skirts which I bought using a certain canadian coupon.  Every time I read those fashion articles attempting to box women into one shape (pear, boyish, etch) I chuckle because I know those rules don’t apply to me.

Knowing what works for you is extremely important if you are going to be a risk taker and rule breaker. This phrase has often be reserved for those who wear the most expensive and high fashion items but Ashley has afforded you the opportunity to meet a fellow blogger who finds it difficult to be boxed in. So take a risk and break some rules as we move into spring. Come back and share your story and share pictures. Fashion rules are meant to rewritten according to every sassy woman’s style!

What are some fashion rules you break?

::ASW Speaking:: Thanks again for participating Kerissa! Those magazines can go kick rocks lol. Most of those tips are false half the time and people should be wise enough to know their body types so they don’t come out of the house looking a mess. You looked lovely in the photos!!

Thanks for being a sassy woman!

    One rule I’ve been breaking for years is not wearing white past Labor day. I happily wear white all year round; just not white linen. : )

    I honestly don’t believe half of what these fashion industry folks claim. I love full skirts too and wear they every chance I get. Knowing what works for you is sooo important, industry folks like to label everything seems like. You look fantastic in these pics very spring time!

    I think knowing what pieces best accentuate your features is the most important thing. Some rules are meant to be followed and others to be broken. I don’t necessarily disagree with all of the industry’s suggestions. I just determine what best suits me and go from there.

  7. Fashion Pad

    Hunni I break every rule the “experts” label as such. For example, white after Labor Day should just stop being included in their annual “Dos and Don’ts” list. It’s so annoying. Great post Kerissa!

    Short but very precise information… Appreciate your sharing this one.
    A must read post!

    Pellegrini set for City talks
    Agen Bola indo11.com reported, Manuel Pellegrini refused to confirm his future plans after his time at Malaga came to an end with a 4-1 defeat at Barcelona on Saturday.
    The loss saw Pellegrini end his tenure in Andalusia with a sixth-place finish in La Liga, enough to see the club into the Europa League next season.
    The Chilean has been linked with a move to replace Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.
    The former Villarreal and Real Madrid coach said he would begin talks with City, but cut his press conference short when a journalist asked him if he had a verbal agreement to manage the club.as reported byIndo Eleven.
    “Now the league is over we will start from Monday and look forward and to see where my future lies. When I reach an agreement I will tell you,” Pellegrini said.
    “I told you last week I have an agreement to start conversations with Manchester City. Some rumours will be right, others won’t, but I have kept my focus on Malaga until now.
    “I just answered the same question, for the third time I’ve been asked the same thing. From tomorrow I will start thinking about my future, today I can’t say anything.”

    Berita MotoGp Indo11.com melaporkan Fernando Alonso hanya bisa finis di posisi ketiga Grans Prix Inggris, meski demikian, andalan Ferrari itu menyebut hasil di sirkuit Silvertone sebagai pencapaian bagus.
    Fernando Alonso yang memulai balap di posisi ke-10. Akan tetapi pebalap asal Spanyol itu mampu mengakhir balapan di belakang sang juara, Nico Rosberg ( Mercedes ) dan Mark Webber ( Red Bull )
    Berita ini dikutip oleh MotoGp Indo11 hasil ini merupakan balapan yang baik buat kami. Kami beruntung bisa meraih hasil yang bagus. Kami juga perlu melakukan banyak perbaikan untuk balapan berikutnya menurut Alonso.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t discuss these issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

  18. good post

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  20. best tooth whitening

    With constant brushing, as we age, the enamel of our teeth develops mini cracks or scratches.
    Toothpaste advertised as containing teeth whitening agents
    is in fact, not that different from regular toothpaste.
    The difference is that a urea molecule is added to hydrogen peroxide that results in the compound we know as
    carbamide.
