I’ve had this dress for quite a while and finally decided to wear it. I was attracted to the faux shirt-tied around the waist effect (it’s hard to see that detail in black). It’s quite fitted, especially for my style, so I styled it with these high top sneakers. In my opinion, when clothing fits more closely to my body, I think  more casual or sporty footwear makes it  less “sexy” and more playful. “Sexy” is never my goal when I’m dressing. Don’t get me wrong, if that’s your thing, do you. But for me, I just love fashion and styling so that’s what matters most to me. To me, I can feel good or attractive in anything without feeling “sexy”. Ok, I digress. Sporting another pair of sneakers, which have become a staple of mine lately. Love that I found an all white pair that I can style with everything! Anyway, God Bless!

Another off-the-shoulder top that I styled a bit sporty/tomboy. These paint splashed khakis I’ve had for several years are laid-back casual but a touch more interesting than a regular pair due to the splashes of paint effect. I styled these sneakers with the look because I just didn’t feel like wearing a shoes and plus I wanted to have a more laid-back, casual vibe. I think I may be wearing sneakers more than any other footwear this Summer. We shall see! Until we meet again, God Bless!

I’m really beginning to really enjoy wearing sneakers! As a teen, sneakers were the footwear of choice, most of the time. But as an adult, wearing a shoe, especially heels, just seems to make me feel more put together. But more recently I have been getting into wearing sneakers. I think I now own more sneakers than ever! Of course, it all began due to working out and training but now it has evolved into buying sneakers to actually style with outfits. If you’re a regular follower of my blog you already know that I like to style things together that wouldn’t “normally” “go-together”. I like the juxtaposition of pieces, like dressy/sporty or girlie/tough, etc. So for this look I paired these high tops with this sweater two-piece that someone else might have styled more “sexy” with heels.  Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Casual attire consisting of a pair of high waist jeans, a sweatshirt and some sneaks. You can’t get anymore basic than that! The sneakers I picked up around Christmas time. I was drawn to them because they reminded me of a pair of DKNY boots that I had back in the day. Why didn’t I keep them? I say that often about pieces I remember having and wish that I currently still owned. That’s why I have a hard time getting rid of pieces now. I always think, now what if I get rid of it and then want it back several years later? That’s why I keep alot of my clothes for years!!! You never know when I get that urge to pull out a piece from the archives. Well, I digress! Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

100% Vegan

Saturday: First off let me just clarify the title of this post. No I am not a vegan. I am would you would call a flexitarian. Sometimes I eat meat and dairy products and then most times I don’t eat meat at all. You know like chicken, beef or pork. I eat fish all the time! Nothing wrong with either being a vegan, vegetarian or whatever else. Do what you feel is best for you. So, even though I’m not 100%vegan, these pants are. So hence the title of this post. Ok, so now that we have that out of the way let’s discuss the outfit. I love to dress down leather, whether it be a skirt or a pair of pants. A cozy knit sweater is one way of doing just that. Also, I had to pull out this sneakers that I got when I purchased the black ones worn here. As you know, I don’t wear sneakers much but I thought I should rock them on a rainy day such as today. Sometimes when it rains I really don’t feel like getting dress and/or leaving the house but since Javar had a b-ball game today, I wanted to be comfy and low key. How do you like to dress on a rainy day? God Bless!

Deep Plum and High Tops

Friday: Yes, I am wearing sneakers today! A no-heel type of day due to plans to hand out with my sis and the nephews. Didn’t know exactly what we were gonna do so I decided to just go with the sneaks. The sweatshirt is the high/low sweatshirt done by Proenza Schouler for the Target/Neiman Marcus collabo. If you don’t know, Neiman Marcus and Target collaborated on some limited edition designer pieces that are being sold at Target. They range from everything from clothing to housewears to bicycles, etc. As far as the clothing goes, this is the only piece that caught my eye. The artwork on the sweatshirt isn’t anything to marvelous but since I have a slight obsession for sweatshirts right now, I had to have it. But not at its regular price, it was actually 50% off at this time so it became more attractive to me. The deep plum pants were a good compliment to the colors in the shirt. Plus since the sw is more oversized, the skinny jean balances it out. And of course I had to pull out my fitted which I can usually no longer wear with my thick natural hair but also just goes with the laid back vibe of outfit. Anyways, had a great day. We went bowling and I won both games! Which didn’t make my nephew AJ too happy. He’s very competition and is one of those types of males who don’t like losing, especially getting beat by a girl! Have a great weekend and be safe (we’re supposed to get 2-4 in of snow here in the Northeast)! God Bless!
