Hey Guys!

So, I guess winter came early this year, we are expecting snow here in the DC area. I can’t believe it, I really thought we would have a while longer before it started freezing. Nonetheless, I guess it’s time to start getting winter content to you all. Honestly, I’m okay with that because I have some fun things in store.

Today, I wanted to share this simple outfit because there is so much stuff going in. I’m prepping for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Not to mention Thanksgiving is next week. But, enough complaining, here is an outfit you could easily wear to work or just running errands around town.

Outfits of the Week

Over on my Instagram, I’ve been taking daily outfit photos and sharing them in my stories. I wanted to start sharing what I wear on a daily basis. You know an authentic outfit of the day, I even take them as a mirror pic. Just to give you all an idea of what my daily lifestyle is, I work a corporate job, in marketing and I typically dress in business casual. I should also say, these outfits are over a few weeks. My company offers working from home and on those days I don’t get dressed.

One of my favorite looks is to wear all black and to add a pop of color. It makes me feel chic and very well put together. 

This look was from a Friday. Typically, I try to go for a more casual look on Friday. I found this shirt at TJ Maxx, I have to say I loved it, then I just threw a lavender sweater for warmth. My office is always so cold.

This may be from one of those work from home days. Sometimes I do get dressed and I like to wear cute sweats to run errands. A trick I have is to put on a denim jacket to bring the look together. 

This look was back when it was still a little chilly out. Dresses, tend to be my favorite this to just throw on in the mornings. Being honest most days I am running late, dresses always work because you will look put together and hopefully it will be easy to get out the door as fast as possible. 

I’m sure this look was from a Friday as well. I really like to wear chambray shirts on Fridays. I am not a fan of wearing jeans to work, so I opt for denim dresses or shirts.

So, those are a few outfits in a nutshell, what do you think? Again check out my Instagram to see more of my daily life and all the fun that goes on over there.

A cute leopard vest

I think I have every item in leopard form (this is not entirely true. I don’t have a leopard purse!). It’s hard because it matches everything and adds a lot of fun to any outfit. So why not? I like to walk on the wild side (pun intended … lol).

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 🙂

Hi Friends,

How was your Independence Day? I had such a good time! I went over a friends house and we spent the entire evening eating and playing Monopoly! It was a perfect time. At the end of the night there were fireworks… fancy that on Independence Day! Did you do anything fun over the holiday?

About this outfit: lately, I have been traveling up and down 95 more often then usual, I will be traveling this weekend and again at the end of the month. Needless to say I have been living in sweats (shocker I know). I just have to be comfortable when traveling. I like this outfit because it is easy to wear and comfortable. Instead of looking like a bag lady when traveling I like to find a cuter alternative. You  never know you may want to run into that outlet mall as you are driving to you location. I also like to take my shoes off in the car, so wearing these slides I can slip them on and off quickly.

I love to be comfortable! Pixie Pants are comfortable, and they are cute! The first time I tried pixie pants they were from J-Crew. If you are looking for a more affordable option then I recommend you try Old Navy’s Pixie Pants! I bought these last year but they have a very similar pair in store now.

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.
