Hello There! You all know my love for leopard. I think I shared this dress on the blog last year and was excited to style it again this year transiting into the fall. I found this dress at Old Navy, I ordered this dress in a tall from online. If you ever come across a dress that may be too short, see if it comes in a tall to give you a little more length.

The dress its self is is very form fitting, I like to tie a shirt around my waist to define my waits and it is a stylish way to make the look not seem so dressy. Which is great because I chose to wear sneakers with the dress.

The sneakers I’ve talked about before (I have them in grey too). Every year I buy a new pair from Target. They hold up well, look great with dresses, and most importantly they are affordable.

Happy Tuesday,

It’s that time of year when everything is a shade a red or pink. A fun fact about me — I am not a fan of red or pink. I think it all came from when I was a little girl and I had a pink bedroom and it hated it. It’s like I have carried it all the way into my 30’s. I do like fuchsia pink.  In my mind it is not the same.

Enough about my crazy childhood of pink hatred. Let’s talk about he outfit. When you think of Valentine’s Day most want to wear red in some way. I had these pants and thought they would go great if you want to wear the color of the season. Also, this look would be perfect if you were going on a more casual date, or if you are one of those lovely ladies who just don’t care to dress up (that’s okay too).

You can easily pair this with a pair of flats or pumps. Also, if you don’t have a leather jacket you could wear a black blazer as well.  There are many modifications for this outfit.

It has been much warmer than I think it should be for the fall. I have been buying things that are way too hot for this 80 degree weather. I am not letting that stop me. Notice, I am not wearing stockings 🙂 That is the great thing about wearing boots. They keep you warm with the weather changing hour by hour.

Hi Friends. If you saw my Fall Haul, you would recognize this skirt from that video. The first time I wore this skirt was for this photo. It is so soft and comfortable. I love it when I find great items built to last. I went thrifting a few weeks ago and found this super cute blazer. It is a BCBG Tuxedo blazer, the sleeves are knit which is so comfortable. I have been looking for a black blazer for a while. I love how this one is different and will add some texture to an outfit.

The Chambray Shirt… in my closet this is a staple. When you are in a rush and just need to throw on something, it is never an option to look a mess 😉 Having a go to outfit always helps when you are in a pinch. I would consider this one of my go to outfit. You can wear it with almost any bottoms and you are good to go.

I would love to know what your go to outfit is.

It is a cold dreary day here in the DC area. Most of the time you will find me in a trench coat to avoid the chill, but sometimes I just want to switch it up! Welcome my leather jacket. I get so much use out of it and it is really really comfortable. I really wish I would have shown you all a picture of this super cute shirt with out the jacket (it has flutter sleeves). Not to worry, I will bring it back out soon enough.

A leather jacket is a great alternative to wear when you just need something to throw on and keep you warm. I love the details of this jacket. Plus it is loose enough to wear a sweatshirt under it if you choose.

Stay warm today guys!

In honor of Good Friday, I am sharing a fun outfit that would be perfect for Easter. At my church we “Come as You Are” meaning there is no dress code. Honestly, this takes off a lot of pressure when getting dressed for church. Not saying it doesn’t really matter, but not having the feeling you are under dressed or over dressed when going to church is great. Typically, I like to dress up a little bit just to show my respect for the occasion. I can go on and on about this topic but… lets discuss this outfit.

I wish every Easter was warm. Getting dressed would be so much easier. Right now, in the DC area it is not warm. I had this dress for years. It has a shimmer to it which adds some eloquence to the look. Notice, just in case it gets too chilly, I have on stockings to help keep me warm.  You know I love my flats. In my opinion, leopard goes with everything. These are by far my favorite pair of shoes.  They are so comfortable and add some fun to the outfit.

Bye Bye Boots

So, I haven’t told you all happy spring! With spring comes open toe shoes, summer dresses, and light jackets. The down size of spring, is we have to put our boots away for a few months. I love boots, but honestly I think I love spring more.

Now that we have said goodbye to our boots, let talk about this outfit. I bought this top to wear to a concert, but ended up wearing something else. I love a simple shirt like this because you can literally wear it so many ways. Tucked in, with leggings, or dress it up for work. I love adding a scarf in the spring because if you get a little chilly you always have something to wrap up in.
