Sunday: I love an all white outfit in the Summertime. It just looks so crisp and clean. And the darker your skin, the more it just seems to pop. No color today, except on the lips. Decided on the neutral shoe to not overpower the white dress. And gold accessories and accents just enhances the look of the white. God Bless!

Sunday: Just a little style mixing today. A casual graphic tee with a tweed skirt. The skirt I picked up a couple of years ago while accompanying Michelle on a trip to consign some clothes. As usual, she was doing the selling while I was doing the buying. I came across this tweed skirt. What drew me to it was its uniqueness. Not only was it a classic tweed, but it had a twist with the open pleats that were of a different floral material. It was different, so of course I had to have it! The shoes are a Target find. I love when I find great little inexpensive pieces from Target. I don’t usually shop there but every once in a while I stop in to see what they have. I got these back in the early Spring when it was still to cold to wear open toe shoes. Right around the time when the stores first put out the new pieces for the upcoming season. I love shopping at those times because you get first dibs on stuff before the people start snatching it up and it’s no longer available. You may look a little crazy being open toes or shorts while it’s still chilly or boots when you can still sport flip flops, but if you like 1st pickings, this is the time! Anywho, I love all the buckles and the straps. Still like a gladiator sandal but with a heel. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

I’m Back

Sunday (2 weeks ago): I’m back! I know I left you all hanging without an outfit post for a few weeks (sorry) but I needed a serious vacay. Actually, I meant to do this post before my vacay started but I didn’t and once the vacay started, I just wasn’t going to post. My vacay consisted not only of being off from work and getting out of town but getting away from technology/social media too. It wasn’t planned but I got that revelation and went with it. So here is the outfit that I wore a few Sundays back. The skirt is one of a few that I have acquired. I love the fit! It has some spandex/lycra so it hugs your curves but is still very comfortable. The heels I bought about a year ago, I think. I love an ankle strap heel. The look and also because of these skinny heels of mine. These color blocked ones are different and you how much I like different. O yeah the turban. I picked up this one and a couple others a couple of years ago but just now decided to try them with an outfit. It’s pretty lightweight and can either be worn during warmer or colder months. Well, that’s all for now. I have another post to put up. Thanks for hanging in there with me! I hope you get a vacay this Summer if you have not already taken one. We all need to recharge ourselves! God Bless!

Sunday: Since I was in all black today I decided to lighten things up a bit with this floral headpiece/headband. This all black look could go a little gothic (which is not me) so I thought the floral headpiece would make the look more ethereal and boho. And a pop of bright pink on the lips doesn’t hurt either! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! God Bless!

In Concert

Friday: An easy, simple outfit for a night out to attend a concert (Chrisette Michele, Jagged Edge and Raheem DeVaughn). I didn’t want to be too dressy so I opted for a pair of shorts that can easily be dressed up with heels, as I did, or dressed down with a pair of flat sandals. The top is quite old and doesn’t get any wear so I decided to pull it out tonight to wear with the shorts. And just these gladiator heels that you’ve seen in this post. I thought they would be good to wear with shorts again since I haven’t styled them with a dress or skirt yet. That’s going to be interesting being as though the straps come up pretty high on my legs which means the skirt/dress would need to hit at the right spot in order for the proportions to be right without looking too risque (for me). But we’ll see when that opportunity presents itself. Anyways, that’s all about the ‘fit. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Sunday: Finally decided to wear this tee that me and my sissy picked up when we went to the Natural Hair Expo back in the Fall. I knew it would make the trousers a bit more casual and relaxed. Also, I like how orange looks with the colors in these printed trousers. To make the orange pop more I added the orange glasses and these orange sandals. I’ve had these sandals for a very long time (like almost 10 years) but I believe this is only my 2nd time wearing them. The reason being (yes, I have a reason for once) they expose a whole lot of toe and make my feet feel naked. I know that sounds crazy but it’s the truth. So now I’m wondering why did I also purchase these same shoes in black, white and pink too? I don’t have an answer for that one. Anyways, one cannot always explain the madness that style/fashion causes sometimes. That’s just how it is! Later for now! God Bless!

Hello Cleo

Sunday: Today’s look another drop waist dress (one worn here in the last post). I love the hemline of this one. It’s flowy and feminine. I was also drawn to the bright yellow piping that contrast with the black and white. Also wearing another one of my wigs. This one I named Cleo, as in Cleopatra! These wigs definitely come in handy for those times when I don’t feel like dealing with my own hair. Anyways, that’s all for now! Have a great week! God Bless!
