Sunday: I love a full skirt. This one is leather-like without being to heavy weight. It’s actually quit lightweight and could be worn throughout the warmer weather but also with tights during the colder months. Nothing new with this combo of a more dressy piece, the skirt, with a more casual piece, a tee shirt. I particularly liked this tee not because of being a fan of Wu-Tang but because of the large numbers that gives it more of a sports jersey feel. The shoes, I bought back when it was still quite cold out but the stores started putting out the Spring pieces. I like to shop when the true seasonal weather hasn’t kicked in yet. I feel like I need to snatch up those pieces that catch my eye at that time because they may not be there once everyone else begins to shop (like now that the weather has finally broken, as they say!). Anyways, I knew these shoes would give the whole ensemble the look I was going for. Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Sunday: 1st let me start off by complaining. Nothing major, just these too small pants! What had happened was, I spotted these trousers on the clearance rack and decided they would be the perfect edition to my ever-growing collection of printed/pattern pants. They were my size (so I thought), and I don’t remember if I tried them on or not. But this a.m. when I put them on, OMG! They are too tight! Everyone knows how I love a loose/saggy/drop-crotch pant so these did not fit to my liking! Uggh! Loose in the waist, too tight in the butt and thighs and looser in the lower legs. I’m o.k with a little bit of fit every now and then but these are ridiculous! I need to be comfortable and able to move in my clothes. I couldn’t even lift my leg to get in the car. I had to slide in. Anyways, I digress! This will be the 1st and the last time these will be worn by me. They have got to go! So since these “fancy pants” are quite shiny and dressy looking, I wore this embellished sweatshirt to tone them down a little. Even though the sweatshirt has a little “bling” to it, it’s still a sweatshirt, a casual piece. Last but not least, the denim cape. I picked it up while thrifting several years back and finally decided to take it out for a spin. It’s actually a custom piece (according to the homemade label inside). I like that the designer used a brooch-like zipper pull to give it a little something special. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Friday: Just a quick comfy outfit I wore to go sit in a continuing education class for a few hours. The pants can go either dressy or casual or grungy. I chose to dress them down with this German soccer tee and a blazer. Since I wanted to be extra comfy, I threw on these monk strap shoes which have a slightly platform sole but are still considered flats, in my book. That’s it for now! God Bless!
P.S.: I tried out the ombre lipstick thing (more like a two-tone effect). It’s a little hard to see in these photos but I like. I’m by no means a MUA but I do like to experiment sometimes. It just ties in with the fashion thing!

Sunday: A quick post of today’s ensemble because I have to get positioned for tonight’s season opener of Drop Dead Diva (on Lifetime). Anywho, another pair of leather-like joggers. These are more straight leg. Worn with a knit that resembles a jersey. I love the neon green with all the black for a pop of color. Real casual but I like to add a bit of glamour with a blingy statement necklace. The booties are a favorite of mine. They’re really just a plain patent leather ankle bootie but the gold chain detail on the back makes them a bit more special. Well, gotta run! Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!
Denim Vest: Borrowed from Javar
Necklace: JCP (old)
Sunday: The weather has been cooperating a bit so I decided to go barelegged today. I’m wearing a wool skirt that has silver metallic yarns woven into the fabric. The skirt is actually quit old. Probably well over 3-4 yrs ago I bought it and it’s just been sitting in my closet until today. It actually can go pretty conservative but I styled it with this more casual letter sweater instead. And the platform booties just adds a touch of edge to the overall all ensemble. O yeah, I finally found a new silver statement necklace that fit my expectations. Short and sweet tonight. Hope you all had a great weekend! Praying that this snow they’re calling for doesn’t hit us too bad! This has to be the last one! Spring does start later this week! God Bless!
