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.

Layer with Athleisure

Hi Friends!

I am sorry I have been MIA this week. It has been such a busy week.

This outfit is perfect for those chilly days. Can you tell I don’t like to be cold? One thing I love to do is layer with light jackets in the spring. Typically,  I would start wearing this complete outfit then as the sun starts to warm the day, I remove the (faux) leather jacket and just wear the hoodie. If it is really hot outside, I would remove both jackets and just wear this super cute tee. I love army print. I think it is the olive green that gets me, it is one of my favorite colors to wear. Do I need to talk about these jeans again? lol Are you sick of them yet? Sorry not sorry, they are still my favorite.

Let’s talk about my hair, this is one of my go to styles when I don’t have much time, but need to do something with my hair. It is so simple! Do you all want to see more of my go to hair styles? Let me know and I can share them with you.

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.

Flea Market Finds

Hi Friends,

In the spring and summer my family visits the Baltimore Flea Market and Bazaar (mostly for the food) but we always have great time. One particular time we found a stand that sold these dashikis. All the women in my family purchased one. I had mine stored in my closet for quite sometime. After I purchased these boots, I thought they would go really well together. It was actually a very comfortable outfit. The boots added that touch of something special 🙂

A Coat for this Weather

Hello there!

I feel the need to rant about how cold it has been the last couple of days. I guess I should be thankful that it is not snowing, so I guess I shouldn’t complain so much. With this cold weather, I have been living in this coat. Honestly, I wear it everywhere, everyday, all the time. I wanted this coat so bad because I have been into the athleisure look and wearing this with sneakers is my favorite look, especially for the weekend. img_8901img_8903img_8922img_8923img_8934img_8946img_8950img_8953

I received this coat for Christmas, but if you are looking for a similar coat I found one here and here.

A Pale Pink Blazer

Hi Friends,

Sorry there wasn’t a post yesterday, that was completely a mistake. That aside, I am here today with a new post 🙂  img_8748_fotorimg_8796_fotorimg_8805_fotorimg_8791_fotorimg_8800_fotorimg_8861_fotor

When I planned this outfit, I was going for a simple casual Valentine’s Day look. Once I saw the pictures I noticed that this would be a great outfit to wear to work, if you want to be festive on Valentine’s Day. Do you all do that? Sometimes it brings a little fun to what can be a monotonous work day. I am sure I’ve expressed how much I love leopard, it goes with everything and is hands down my favorite print.

These are my favorite jeans, and I found this blazer at TJ Maxx. This shirt was given to me by my little brother for Christmas, from The Limited which is no longer with us 🙁 I am sad about them going out of business, but glad I got this cute shirt at an amazing price!

Trying New Things

Happy Tuesday Friends,

Today’s outfit is a simple one. I love love love outfits that you can just throw on and still feel like you are in your pjs. Typically, I prefer a more structured looked and when I found these pants until I walked out the house for this shoot I was unsure about these pants. I decided to take a risk. Can you tell I am not much of a risk taker? When I decided to wear these pants I though to myself They are cute they look great with this shirt and decided to go with it.

I had to remind myself, it is just clothes and fashion is meant to be fun and creative so lets plan and have fun with it. img_8272_fotorimg_8235_fotorimg_8284_fotorimg_8240_fotorimg_8286_fotorimg_8261_fotorimg_8264_fotor

Tip: If you are wearing an oversized shirt and less form fitting bottoms tuck the top in slightly to create more shape to avoid looking like you are wearing a sack 🙂

Stylish in the Office

Happy Thursday Friends!

I have another outfit suitable for a business casual look. So for you who work a 9-5 this is perfect for you. img_7828_fotorimg_7660_fotorimg_7789_fotorimg_7658_fotorimg_7745_fotorimg_7661_fotor

Funny story about this outfit, I actually wore it on my graduation day. Back in December I graduated with my Master’s degree, it was freezing outside and I know I didn’t want to wear heels so this is what I came up with. I was comfortable all day.

I found this dress on the sale rack at Banana Republic. I love their dresses, they are the most comfortable, never to short and cute for business attire.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend, I would love to hear all about it. Leave me a comment letting me know what you are doing.

Feather Light Tee

Hi Friends!

We are halfway through the week, how are you all holding up! Can you believe Valentine’s Day is next week? I don’t have any plans as of yet but I am certainly looking into something. img_8592_fotorimg_8596_fotorimg_8606_fotorimg_8607_fotorimg_8608_fotorimg_8646_fotorimg_8671_fotorimg_8731_fotor

It was so cold and windy this day, and this shirt would be amazing in the spring. I am impatient and wanted to wear it this day. I thought it would be a great shirt to wear (with a coat) for a casual Valentine’s Date. Initially when I picked up this shirt I grabbed my normal size and I didn’t think it was cute at all. Then I found another shirt that I thought was different, but when I tried it on I thought it was soo cute. Turns out I picked up an XL and I loved it!

Just add a Blazer

Yesterday was such a nice day here. It was in the 60s and I was loving it! It made me even more excited for spring!!

Today’s outfit is simple yet well put together. When you add a blazer onto a simple outfit it pulls it all together adding a touch of class and chic-ness! I promise you con never go wrong with this look. If you don’t own a blazer get one. Seriously, all I have on is a long sleeve t-shirt and boots. When you add the blazer voila! I found this blazer last year in Target, yes Target. In my opinion it is a dupe for the JCrew school boy blazer.
