Sunday: So I decided to dress for the Fall today (too hot in church though). Just like the midi skirt, I love a maxi skirt or dress too. Wanted to make the look casual and laid back so I paired it with this oversize knit and tall boots. Yes, the boots come to my knee but since the skirt is so long you wouldn’t know that. They’re quit old. I actually don’t remember when I bought them, exactly, but I think it was around the time that ??? (I can’t remember the name of the shoe store either), but they had some great shoes for rock bottom prices, was going out of business. Ok, it just came to me-Footprints. Are you familiar with it? There was one in Wilmington (Kirkwood Hwy) and one in Turnersville, NJ that I frequented pretty often with my mom. I did notice that they didn’t have any signs of wear on the bottom so I guess I never wore them. The chain headpiece, I picked up a couple of years ago but it is impossible to wear with natural hair. I did try it on once but it got all caught up in my hair so I decided that I would try it with straight hair. And since I only straighten my hair once a year, hence the reason why I’m just now wearing it. Ok, you probably didn’t care to hear all that, but just saying. Anywho, hope all is well in your life and you’re having some fun with your Fall fashions. God Bless!

Sunday: I always loved a midi skirt. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “midi skirt” it’s a skirt that ends anywhere from just below the knee to a few inches above the ankle. Sometimes this length is also referred to as “tea length”. It’s a style that’s in between the mini skirt (above the knee/mid thigh) and the maxi skirt (almost floor sweeping). Midi skirts can come in the full style, as I am wearing, but also can be a pencil skirt, a “wiggle skirt” or straight style. This length is ideal for chilly days when you’re still delaying the need to wear tights (guilty!) but it comes down over your legs far enough so that you are still pretty comfortably warm. It’s also perfect for early Spring when the temps aren’t quite so warm yet. I chose to style it with this thin knit to make it more casual but also keep a slight retro feel by wearing these pointy toe pumps. If you’re ready for tights or not, knee high boots also work well with this style. Or maybe an ankle boot. Just have fun and style it the way you see best. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Sunday: I know it’s now November but I am still getting some wear out of my lighter weight clothing. I did initially have a turtleneck under this top but didn’t like how it looked. I figured the heat would be on in church so my arms wouldn’t get cold. Actually, the colder weather months are the best time to wear short sleeves in church because the heat will be on and not the air conditioner like in the Summer. Anyway, I liked the casualness of the top and how they used the jeweled neckline to dress it up a bit. You know how I like the juxtaposition of something more casual with something more dressy. The pants I picked up during Summer vacay at the beach. Nothing like a bold print! Side note: Michelle and I and her sister did our annual charity shopping event on Friday. We got some great pieces and the proceeds went to four different charities. Shopping for a cause! You’ll see them as I wear them in upcoming blog posts. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Sunday: Another overall kind of day. This pair is very comfy! There a knit pair that I picked up while vacationing down the beach. Yeah, I like to shop while on vacay. That’s my thing to do. Everyone else chooses something they want to do while on vacay, and mine is always to shop. They may have some of the same stores that you see at home but different regions have buyers that may get different pieces than you would find in your local stores. So if shopping is your thing, don’t hesitate to check the local stores when you’re on vacay! Especially thrift stores! Alright, I’m out for now. It’s been a long birthday weekend! I’ll show you some of my gifts in another post. Thanks to everyone who bought me gifts and for the b-day wishes! God Bless!

Saturday: Wearing these denim overalls that I picked up last year. Kept the look casual by wearing this grid pattern knit sweater. I didn’t realize it (until the temp got quite warmer than when we first left the house and I took off my jacket) but I was wearing the team colors, red and white, at Javar’s game. Anywho, pulled out these comfy Zara boots in preparation to go check out the new Century 21 store that just opened at the Gallery in Philly. Century 21 is one of my favorite places to shop! There are none locally (until now). The company has all of its stores in the New York/North Jersey area. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a department store that carries everything from women’s wear, menswear, childrens, accessories and shoes. Unlike an ordinary department store, it has designer and high-end designer brands at 50% off and more! The prices can seem a bit steep for most people, but if you love designers but don’t want to pay full price for them, this is the place to go! They also carry lesser priced brands too so don’t be put off or intimidated by high end designer names and prices. I actually bought myself a pair of boots for my birthday present to myself! Hey,there’s nothing wrong with my yourself a b-day or Christmas present. You get exactly what you want and in the correct size, no returns necessary! Well, gotta go do another post. Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Side Note: I realized when I went to take them off, my boot was left unzipped from trying on footwear at Century 21. My “photographers” never tell me that kind of stuff. I guess when you get photos taken free of charge by non-professionals stuff like that slips by, lol.

Warning: Picture Overload/Transitional Outfit

Sunday: With the temperature taking a little dip today I decided to wear a “transitional outfit”. Transitional meaning you may have some warmer weather pieces that you still want to and can wear before the temps get too cold, and you wear them in a way that’s still season appropriate. For this look, the pants are lightweight but the long sleeve/rolled sleeve top and blazer help them to transition easily from Spring/Summer to early Fall. Also, the heavier shoe (which is hard to see), but with it’s chunky sole and chunky wood heel and patent leather, but also a peep toe makes it appropriate for the early Fall temps when it’s still warm enough to wear your toes out. For me anyway, some people venture into open toe/feet exposed footwear in the Winter. I might, but with socks or tights. And I love the Fall (fashion-wise), for being able to wear my hats without my head getting too hot. Sidebar: I prefer men’s hats because they’re bigger and can be seated down better on my head. Plus, the brims and bigger and wider! Do you prefer Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter dressing? Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Top: A.N.A (JCP)

Trousers: Worthington (JCP)

Shoes: Michael Kors (really old!)

The Secretary and the Cheetah

Sunday: Nothing like a pop of color when wearing an animal print! I could have easily worn a bright pink, yellow, orange,  or other bright color blouse/top with this cheetah print skirt, but instead I opted for this red, tie neck  sheer blouse. The tie neck gives the look a retro secretary feel but the ankle booties makes it more modern. Thanks for reading! Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Blouse: BCF

Skirt: Dana Buchman (gifted from my Secret Sister; Thanks!)

Booties: F21
