Animal Instincts

Love the richness of a burgundy/wine color! It pops well against this animal print skirt. Wanted to dress the skirt down by styling it with this tee and platform sneakers. These sneakers are the same the ones I posted here with the stars. I initially purchased tan ones like these but with the stars. I never wore them so I returned them when I got back from Chicago after purchasing these and the white ones with the stars for both pair for less than the one other pair. Steve Madden was having a great sale! Well, thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Skirt: Buffalo by David Bitton (JCP) (I probably got that name wrong but you can find that brand at JCP)

Mint Condition

21 Apr

Another skirt and sneaker ensemble.  WARNING: you will be seeing alot more of this combo as the weather gets warmer. Now that we have that out of way, this bright minty color helps me usher in Spring even though the weather hasn’t been cooperating that much. I love the color combos in the skirt, how the dark navy makes the mint green pop even more. The sneakers are classic running sneakers that I picked up about a year ago and just happened to go with the color of the skirt. What do you think? Are you feeling the skirt and sneakers thing? God Bless!

I’m loving this hunter green mid skirt. It’s a faux leather and can be worn higher up on the waist, like I’m doing or you can slouch it lower to sit on the hips. I styled it to in a more school girl/70’s style way with this classic button down shirt. The bike print makes it a bit more quirky, which I love. And these platform ankle boots makes the look more modern. Plus, I like the contrast of the honey-colored booties with the green. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Ears and A Midi

6 Jul

Sunday: Last start from the top. The ears is a headband that I picked up about a year ago. I thought it was a fun, quirky accessory (a few designers had showed similar ones). I haven’t worn them out before so I thought I would just wear them for outfit post. Sporting one of my favorite midi skirts that I found while shopping with my sis after our beach day. I also purchased it in navy. Dressing down the look with a tee is always one of my favs. And I can’t forget the hand accessory. I wouldn’t really call it a glove because it doesn’t cover the fingers, but I knew I had to have it! You know if it’s different, it’s for me! Well, thanks for taking some time out of your busy Summer schedule to keep up with my posts. Hope you had a great 4th of July! God Bless!

Muscle Tees and Polka Dots

22 Jun

IMG_7887 IMG_7897 IMG_7898 IMG_7895 IMG_7891

Saturday: An easy, cool Summer look. Two lightweight pieces to ward off the rising mercury. Just an ordinary muscle tee that I paired with this polka dot midi skirt. I found the skirt during a recent thrifting trip. Skirts are my top find when I go thrifting. I love a vintage skirt and they seem to be in abundance more than anything thing else at the thrift store. Most of them have a bigger size than what I usually where but “back in the day”, sizing wasn’t an issue so they weren’t afraid to label with a bigger size. I say all this to say, don’t always go by the size on the label. Look at the garment and if it looks like you can fit it, by all means try it on. This works for me the majority of the time. I can usually fit it. And plus, I don’t usually wear pieces that fit me snugly. I like to have some room and prefer a more loose fit of my garments, most of the time. Until next time, God Bless!

Belle of the Ball…Skirt

Mother’s Day: It was Mother’s Day, so why not dress up a little! As I’ve said before, I love a midi skirt! And this one I consider to be a ball skirt because it is a little more fancy than the norm. Meaning the fabric and structure makes it so it could be “dressed down” for everyday wear or “dressed up” to be worn on a more formal occasion. I’ve had it since the Winter and thought this to be the perfect opportunity to wear it. I just didn’t want to wear it with tights! ugh! The white tee keeps it casual enough but the mules keeps the look feminine and girlie enough. Sorry, for my absence, I have been very busy lately. I got a couple more outfit posts to make up for my absence. Gotta go for now! Thanks for your continued support! God Bless!

Sheer Madness

Sunday: My midi skirt obsession continues! I was drawn to this one because of its uniqueness. It kinda gives off a lace look but instead is patterned sheer. Since it is rather feminine, I wanted to toughen it up and make it more casual by layering a polka dot button down under this oversized men’s sweater. And these zip front blocked heel booties add a little toughness too. Maybe the next time I wear the skirt I’ll pretty it up with a blouse and some pointy toe heels or an open toe sandal (in the warmer months, of course!). Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!
