Tweedy Not Tweety

21 Oct


Sorry! I know I’ve been missing in action from the blog. Been so busy on the weekends with football and not really having the time or the motivation to take outfit pics. But I’m back now! Anyway, I styled this tweed Chanel-esque skirt with the basic Men’s white button down dress shirt. This one is extremely oversized since it is from the Big & Tall Section. I initially planned to wear it peeking out from beneath the skirt (it’s really long) but opted to style it more effortless and slightly disheveled with the thoughtlessly pushed up sleeves. Until the next time, God Bless!

Rough Around the Edges

24 Sep


Some may call this a jumper dress and others may call it a pinafore dress. Whatever it’s called it was a great choice for this steamy hot day! It’s lightweight denim and super comfy! Perfect for running around getting things done. I styled it with my shiny sneakers to make it even more laid back and casual. How are you beating the heat with wardrobe choices? God Bless!

Pretty Sneaky

23 Sep


Just wondering if my new found love of sneakers and flat shoes will change once the temperature begins to drop. But for now, I just can’t get enough! The fact that this jumpsuit is a bit revealing on the top (a bit too much cleavage for my taste), meant that I wanted to create a more sporty and less “sexy” look so the sneakers were a no-brainer. The jean jacket also added a touch more modesty and warmth for the subzero air conditioning. This is another one of those Summer to Fall transition pieces. Are you currently or will you transition any of your Summer pieces? Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Still enjoying the OTS (off the shoulder) trend but this time with this lovely, mulitiered, mustard colored dress. The hat just finishes the look to me and anytime I can incorporate a hat into a look I’m a happy girl! I feel like I should have been on a holiday in some other country wearing this ensemble. Instead I was just here on the East Coast going about my business as usual. But anyway, a girl can dream right? God Bless!

A Little Black A Little White

18 Sep


A bit of pattern mixing. Remember, the key is to have the same colors. Unless you’re a bit more daring and a fashion risk-taker. But this is the easy way to do it. The skirt a bit higher on the waist so I styled it with this crop top. This is look that I’ve come to love as a Summer go to, a crop top and a skirt. And I can’t forget how obsessed I am with a flat slide. They are just so easy and look good with everything! I think my heels are probably a bit jealous this Summer because I have been almost totally neglecting them. We’ll see what happens this Fall. Do you have a go-to look for the Summer? God Bless!

Hey Mickey!

17 Sep

An unexpected “prop” rolled into the shot so I just figured, let’s go with it! This all took place as Javar’s things that were packed and waiting to be taking for him to move into school was shifted around in order to get these quick outfit shots. Anyway, I needed to be comfy for the big move and nothing is more comfy than denim, a t-shirt and a pair of sneakers. Later for now. God Bless!

There’s nothing like hand-me-downs from a son who quickly outgrows everything! I love taking a piece that is menswear and styling it with a few feminine pieces. The shorts from Javar but I now call them my own. The OTS (off the shoulder) top adds a bit of femininity with a boho flair. No “color” in this look but I  like the neutrality. How do you feel about women incorporating menswear pieces into their wardrobes? God Bless!
