I am writing this on Tuesday night, and I have to say, I am a day behind in my post because I thought today was Monday. Anyway… how was your Memorial Day? I went shopping with Frank and a few friends for key pieces for my summer wardrobe. I am so excited to share with you the fun items I picked out for the best time of the year.

Hi Friends,

I hope you all had a great weekend. Honestly, I am shocked I was able to get this post edited and live today. Last week was such a crazy week. I felt like I didn’t even have a chance to sit down. I am glad to start the week off fresh.

On another note, lets talk fashion. This skirt I have been waiting to wear once stockings were no longer necessary. I wanted to pair it with a simple t-shirt and a denim jacket. There is still a chill in the air here hence the light jacket. Plus, I love denim with everything ūüôā

Confidence in Black

Over the years I have been drawn to color – ¬†the brighter the better. One of my favorite things to do Is mixing contrasting colors together. I¬†get a lot of comments that they¬† would¬†never have¬†thought to wear that together (I take that as a compliment!). ¬†However,¬†in the past year or two, I have been loving more neutral colors.¬†I find all black to be the opitaimity of chic! We can even see this throughout the years. One movie most fashionistas love, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when she wore that amazing black dress and pearls. I do, however, consider myself a fashionista, but I actually¬†thought that movie was boring.¬† I watch it for the fashions.

With black, by changing the accessories, you can create so many outfits that give you so many looks. You can have a sporty look when you wear an outfit with sneakers, then with the same outfit have an evening look with jewelry and heels (flats for me tho!).  I just love how versatile one color can be.

You can even transition it throughout the seasons. I love a simple black t-shirt in the spring and summer. A black turtleneck in the fall and winter has been a staple in my wardrobe forever!

Cross-Body Bags

Hi, my name is Jazmin and I have a problem with cross-body bags. I love them! I wear them all the time. I mean how can you not? They are just so cute. Let me tell you, in addition to being cute they are functional! It’s like a game… how much stuff can I fit into this little tiny bag without it weighing more than me? Usually, I win because I have it down to a science: ¬†small lotion, lipstick, powder, and a teeny tiny wallet with the basics.

Most of these bags are out of stock, because I try to purchase high quality bags so I can have them for years and they still look great. P.S. that coach bag is a hand me down form my mom and she had it over 10 years.

What’s in My Gym Bag

Today I am giving you all quick fitness check in. I am happy to share, I am pleased with my progress. I have been working out consistently for about three weeks, which was a big goal for me… be consistent. ¬†While preparing to go to the gym today, it hit me. Maybe you would like to see what I bring with me to the gym.

1. Work out clothes
On a normal day, I head to the gym straight from work. Which is why my gym clothes are in my bag ūüôā just in case you were wondering.

2. Headphones
I need my headphones in order to work out. I really have to emphasis this point. There have been times when I left my headphones home and would skip my workout because I wouldn’t be motivated to do much without music.

3. Micellar Water
I like to wipe off my face makeup just incase. I am crazy when it comes to keeping my skin in the best position possible. I say, better safe then sorry. Another easy option is makeup wipes.

4. Wet Wipes
People are gross, I like to have antibacterial wipes with me when things are not looking as clean as I think they should. At the gyms I go to, I have noticed they ran out of disinfectant spray. I went home that day, and put my wipes in my bag imminently.

5. Perfume
After a hard work out I still like to smell like a lady. So I spritz myself just a little to freshen up. My mom always tells me “you never know when you may run into someone.”¬†Scentbird provides a great service, you can get a 30 day supply to try out before you make a¬†big perfume purchase.

6. Water
We have to hydrate.

Spring To-Do List

IMG_3789

  1. Go on a road tip- As long as I am not the one driving, this is the best thing to do on a nice warm day. It is the best when you hop in the car and drive to a place you haven’t been before and spend the day exploring.
  2. Start gardening- I have to admit I don’t have a green thumb and don’t have much interest in planting, on the other hand things look so much better when you plant some pretty flowers in you front yard. I did this for the first time in the fall and loved the way the yard looked.
  3. Ride my bike- Let me ask you, as an adult have you been on a bike ride? If you haven’t it is one of my favorite things to do. The weather has to be just right, if you take a leasure ride with amazing scenery you will love it too!
  4. Run 3 miles in 30 minutes- This is a new goal I have set for myself. I am not the best long distance runner, but there is nothing wrong with striving to be better. I love to work out and challenge myself. I will keep you posted and let you know if I ever succeed.
  5. Stop and smell the roses- I tend to run myself very thin. This spring I want to take more time for myself and relax more.

Just Let It Go

It is time for spring cleaning. Twice a year I do an overhaul on my closet. Like most of you, I am sure you have those items in your closet that you never reach for, thus taking up valuable space. For one reason or another we become attached to our clothes even though they do nothing for us in the long run. If you find yourself in a place where you just can’t get rid of things, here are some tips to give you more perspective on letting go.

  1. You get more space! —–Have you ever had your closet so full it was hard for you to put things away or take things out? I admit I have been there before. It makes getting dressed so hard. As many of you know, I get up fairly early in the morning.¬†Knowing that¬†I am not a morning person, I have to make getting dressed as simple as possible. I¬†pick out the¬†clothes I want to wear the night before, mostly, but if something doesn’t look right or the weather is not what I expected, I need to change my outfit and the pickings need to be available¬†quickly and accessible!
  2. Easier to make outfits—– I like to consider myself as a person who can get dressed fairly quick (as long as I know what I am going to wear). When I am stuck putting together an outfit at the last minute, it can take hours, especially if it is a special occasion. When you have items in you closet that make you feel good, you will love everything and when you close your eyes and pull out something it will work because it is not a piece of junk that you don’t even remember buying let alone wearing in the past year.
  3. You know everything fits—– One thing I like to do before I get rid of something, especially if I am on the fence about it, is wear it one last time. If there is something off about the item, I¬†find myself messing with it throughout the day or¬†I realize I¬†am¬†uncomfortable¬†wearing it. The first thing I do when I get home is take that amazing item that would be great for someone else and toss it in a bag for donations. I will not put it back into my closet (sorry I wont even wash it).
  4. You know what you have— When you know what you have you will not make the mistake of buying the same item over and over. I have been there before when I’ve purchased the same black shirt in slight variations. Honestly, how many black v-neck shirts do I need? Just because this on has a tiny design on the sleeve that is barely noticeable does not count. When things get hidden by the overwhelming amount of stuff in your closet it is easy to miss!
