Sunday: Matching knit wear ensemble today. The top is actually a crop top but of course I had to layer it to make it church appropriate. Plus I like how the longer button down looks layered with the crop top. I wore the rugged boots because I liked how they looked with the whole ensemble. Accessory wise, I opted for the heart broach instead of a statement necklace and an understated pair of earrings. A little sparkle, but understated accessories, none-the-less. Well, until next time, remember: “Style is a way to say who you are, without having to speak” Rachel Zoe. Be safe as we prepare for yet another snow event! Gosh, I can’t wait to be able to take photos outside again! God Bless!
Knit Top and Sweater: Boscov’s
Booties: Kelsi Dagger (old)
Saturday: A casual Saturday calls for a casual outfit. The initial sweater was purchased during the after Christmas sales. I love good knit, especially the lightweight ones that can be worn layered during the colder months and then alone during the Spring. I even love to rock them during the Summer with shorts (when it’s not too hot or in the evenings). It’s such a preppy piece but I styled it with these distressed jeans to give it a different look. And of course, the leopard booties are a neutral for me. They go with almost everything! They can take an outfit to another level. And how bout these red glasses! I love them! I am obsessed with fashion glasses and have been looking (passively) for some red ones. I may not wear my prescription glasses often but I will rock some fashion frames! Alright, that’s all for now. Got another post to do. God Bless!
Sweater: Old Navy
Jeans: JCP (very old)
Necklace: Jessica Simpson
Sunday: Today was supposed to be an all black day but instead I decided to mix it up with navy blue instead. Does it matter, navy or black, they’re both dark neutrals, right? Anyway, I love a coated jean! This is the newest pair added to ones that I already own. Coated jeans just make jeans a little more dressy but also give you the look of leather. Wore a printed blouse to add a little interest instead of an all monochromatic look. And of course, I had to add a pop of color with these burgundy suede booties. I like to always throw on something a little unexpected and against “the norm” in an outfit. It just makes things a little more interesting! Try it sometime! Well, another weekend down. Thanks for reading and following my personal style diary (this blog). Have a blessed week! God Bless!
Blouse: I Heart Ronson (JCP)

Friday: I wore this to the Phileo Love Fellowship at church. The event was rescheduled from Valentine’s Day due to the weather. The dress code was business casual so I decided to wear these trousers instead of the dress that I initially had in mind. I am truly a dress girl and love to wear one every chance I get. The trousers won out at the last minute since I wasn’t in the mood to wear the dress. Anyways, these printed trousers are about 3-4 yrs. old. I remember purchasing them but this is the 1st time I’ve pulled them out to actually wear them (no good reason, it just happens that way sometimes). They’re are pretty medium weight material so they can be worn during either cooler or warmer months. I really dressed them down by wearing this studded knit pullover. And of course, I had to throw on a little heeled brown suede bootie as to not be too casual. I wish I would have taken a side shot of the booties so you could see the detail (the back half is a gold foil-like detail). I also have them in black leather with silver detail worn here. You know me and my multiples! Anywho, hope you enjoyed the great weather this weekend on the East Coast! I did and can’t wait until Spring! But I know Winter is not done with us yet even though most of us is done with it! God Bless!
P.S.: Sorry for the peek-a-boo bra situation, didn’t realize it until later, oops!
Trousers: Sportmax Code (TJ Maxx)
Booties: Cosmopolitan (JCP)
Sunday: As you may have noticed, I am on a letterman sweater kick. Remember I wore a letterman cardigan in this post. This sweatshirt is just another one of those that I am loving right now. I love how the huge white “A” pops off the stark black background. No, the “A” doesn’t really stand for anything in particular, I just love how it looks when paired something less sporty such as these printed trousers. It’s an unexpected combo and that’s what like about it. And then of course, the black tights with the white pumps just adds to quirkiness of the whole look. This look man not work for you, but the individual pieces can be worn with other pieces that is more your personal style. I believe everyone should own a pair of printed trousers. They are just that thing that could liven up your basic business attire. You could style them with a plain top/blouse, with or without a jacket. So step out of your neutral box. Give them a try! All the stores are selling them at every price point. Thanks for reading! I hope I inspire you to take some fashion risk that you might have never thought about trying! God Bless!
P.S.: The title is homage to Sesame Street! We were raised on Sesame Street, not literally, although my mom and aunt used to point out little girls that resembled my sister, my cousin and myself, and tell us that they were us, lol! And we believed them! My boys were also Sesame Street kids. I love that show! So educational and still going strong today after 40+ years. I don’t know about these other children’s programs, but you will never go wrong with Sesame Street! I digress!
Pumps: Chinese Laundry
Friday: So this was my Valentine’s Day outfit. It wasn’t what I actually had in mind but considering the weather we were having, it only made since (practically). The grounds were snow covered and if not covered with snow, the melting had begun and things were a slushy mess! So instead of the cute skirt and heels that I wanted to wear, I gave in to more practical pieces. Overall, enjoyed a great V-day spent with the hubby. Caught Kevin Hart’s latest flick, “About Last Night”. It was definitely another hit for him! So funny, but also a great storyline with other incredible actors/actresses. Go check it out and see for yourself! Anyway, hope you had a great one whether with the one you love or whatever else you chose to do to celebrate! God Bless!
Sunday: I love any form of white in the Winter. So these window pane trousers were an obvious choice. They’re actually comfortable/warm enough for colder weather, but would also work when we hit warmer days. Instead of keeping the look all black and white, I threw on this orange cowlneck sweater for a pop of color. Also, loving my new lace up pumps. I love a good pump but have a hard time wearing them due to my narrow heels that just won’t stay put. So when I saw this and how they are secured around the ankle, they had to come home with me! Hope you had a great weekend! Looks like another snow covered rush hour for us East Coasters, ugh! Let me try to get to sleep even though I’m not very tired right now due to my afternoon nap. God Bless!
