Hello, friends! I'm back from Atlanta, and not inside my apartment complex, isn't this a lovely surprise? I haven't posted an outfit photo in a week. Have you all missed my clothes? Is that weird? It's only weird if you make it weird.








Speaking of weird.... back to the title of this post.

A few weeks ago, I was e-mailing back and forth with a fellow blogger (we'll just call her... Kristine), and she mentioned that when she googled "Lynette Marie", the first website to pop up was a site for an escort. You know what I mean by escort, right? There are no children in the room, right? Okay, good. 

Kristine said she thought it was hilarious that this particular escort (who literally is also named Lynette Marie) is also blonde, built somewhat similarly to me (sans a couple of big girls if you know what I mean), and has her face blurred out in all of her pictures. Kristine also demanded that if that was me, I indeed must tell her, not because she was interested in "my services" but because "it would be hilarious" if I were a blogger by day and an escort in Vegas by night. HA! 

Let's clear this up, shall we?

Back when I first started my blog, I was interested in registering it under a domain name. So one day, I checked a domain registration site to see if lynettemarie[dot]com was available. When I saw it wasn't, I was curious to see what the website was. Needless to say, I was quite horrified when I went to site and saw that it was owned by a strikingly similar blonde who likes to.. well, whatever it is that escorts like to do. I prayed to God that none of my readers ever tried to find me at lynettemarie[dot]com and accidentally found my hotter, older, more sinful look-a-like, and that they didn't wonder exactly what Kristine wondered.

Oh Lord, I do apologize to all you curious cats who are going to that website right now out of pure curiosity. I just thought I should let you all know... THAT ESCORT IS NOT ME. I live in Michigan, not Vegas. I am a minister's wife, not an escort. And I just like to blog under my first and middle name, IS THAT SUCH A CRIME?

    And I did miss your clothes! I love your necklace and nude pumps! And seriously, you have the best purse collection! Love this bag!

  5. You're hysterical! I like this Lynette Marie MUCH better. I actually love my middle name, too (Ashley) and thought about using it, but then went with a nickname (Mo) instead. :) And PS I missed your clothes. Totally not weird.

    xo
    See Mo Go.

  7. You look gorgeous! That is such a funny story- sharing the same name with someone in that field (or a similar) one is just awful!

  10. I love the look, and I can't believe those shoes are from payless. I think they look like designer shoes. So glad you and your outfit posts are back :)

  11. I'd say your classy style would prevent anyone from really thinking it was you! :) I'm loving the color combinations in this outfit too by the way!

  14. That is hilarious! When I started my store, I wanted DaisyRae.com but it was taken by a store that sells sex toys. lol. But now they are out of business and no longer have that address. I tried to buy the domain name but they want $15,000! Anyways, I got off topic. lol. You look amazing! Way too classy to be an escort!

  17. This outfit is so pretty & it would be great for Valentine's Day too. I love the shape, length & olor of that cardigan and that gorgeous Light Peach Statement Necklace. Also, great bag.

    Stop by & see what's new with me. =)

  18. bahaha, this is hilarious. unsurprisingly, lynettemarie.com is blocked at my work, so you can remain the hottest version of lynette marie (which you obvs are anyway). love the classy pinstripes!

  19. hahahaha. I legit just snorted at work. The quiet office hates me now. That's unfortunately hilarious. On the bright side, those heels were $25?? Steal of a deal. Steal of a deal.

  20. Haha! this post totally cracked me up. I will have to avoid typing in your blog URL in my address bar, but it's okay because if I start to type "lynette" then your URL autofills for me anyway, but since it's lynettemarieh.blogspot.com, I read it as "lynette mariah" which would actually be a pretty good escort name.

  21. I'm laughing at this post. What an awkward coincidence.

    Also, you're a flippin' genius. I keep getting frustrated by the fact that I can't wear sweaters over button ups. They look all lumpy and weird. And NOW, I see that you've buttoned up a cardigan over a button up. You've solved my dilemma! Thanks :)

  26. Oh no! That is hilarious and super awkward. There is a comedian who has the same name as me, so I think if anyone does a Google search, they will just find her.

  27. Sex toys are supposed to come with advice about how to clean and store them. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
    For sex toys that can be washed, make sure you wash them methodically with warm water and soap after each use. Also wash them between uses....sex toys
