Dragonfly

There’s something about a dragonfly that is intriguing to me. So when I came across this longline vest with dragonfly appliques on the back, I had to have it! Styled it with loose fitting pair of culottes to give it a sophisticated but relaxed look. Later may style it with a pair of jeans for a different look. God Bless!

Potato Sack

Yes, I do believe they literally took potato sacks to make this dress! It reminded me of the ‘I Love Lucy’ episode where Lucy and Ethel wanted a designer original dress and Ricky and Fred got the ladies dresses made from potato sacks as a joke. Anyway, here I am in a potato sack! Until the next time, God Bless!

It’s already public knowledge, but I love a caftan! This time a veered off my usual Mrs. Roper style and went with an African print! Instead of the expected sandal, I chose a pair of sneakers. Bye for now! God Bless!

Caftan: Sorry! Don’t remember cause I had it for a few years!

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

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!
