I am pretty sure the readers of Kandi’s Land know the Rules of the Road as presented by Kandi Robbins. Be smart. Be appropriate. Be confident. Be visible!
Well, I had a chance to do some girl shopping a few days ago. So I got dressed and applied moderate make-up to go to Walmart. Keeping in mind the four “Bs” I wore leggings, a long sleeve top and red sneakers. See my picture taken in the parking lot just before heading into the store. My outfit was totally appropriate.
I confidently strolled into the store, purse slung over my shoulder, looking for female items to buy. I was very visible as I picked up something in the cosmetic section. And then to Women’s Clothing to get a bra, stay-up stockings and a pair of nice black pantyhose.
Maintaining my visibility I browsed the blouses and skirts, and finally picked up a beautiful teal scoop neck short sleeve top.
Checking out was easy. All the while I just blended in with all the other ladies doing their thing. I greeted everyone I passed with a smile and a cheery “HI”.
I don’t know if I did the fourth B. I’m not that “smart”.
It was a simple morning just being the woman I am.
Be safe everyone.
Jocelyn, shopping at Walmart, a very mainstream and generally safe place (nowhere is 100% safe these days) is the exact definition of being smart! Four for four!
You look great ! You dressed appropriately for the setting. Some of us don’t do that. I dress to blend. How many women do you see in the mall wearing a dress these days?
Thanks for the compliment and support Terri.
I don’t see any woman wearing a dress or skirt anymore.
Thanks Kandi for the “being smart” endorsement.
Totally appropriate outfit, Jocelyn. I like that your top has a bit extra with the knot at the bottom. I like the 4 pillars and you look like you were exemplifying them all.
Thank you Frannie, your comments are very comforting and helpful.
I agree with you about the knot at the bottom of the shirt and the contouring it gives. It also helps disguise the middle age spread. I also like the colour.
