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!

Who doesn’t love a maxi anything! Well, I guess if you’re a bit height challenged wearing a maxi dress/skirt could be a challenge but it could be done (with the help of a good tailor). This skirt I actually picked up from a pop up boutique at an event we went to early Spring. The actual boutique is in Jersey and I still have yet to make a trip there but it will happen. She had pieces that were so spot on my style that after watching me shop, the owner actually picked out pieces that she knew I would like. I was drawn to the colors and the busy print on this skirt. I love the mix of the floral with the stripes! Are you into maxi dresses/skirts? How do you style them? God Bless!

Sporting my white “orthopedic” sneakers that I love so much! Everything about this look speaks comfort to me. A t-shirt, which is the epitome of comfort. Denim, an American icon when it comes to clothing and what is thought of as comfortable clothing. And then, of course, the sneakers. You probably wouldn’t find anyone on Earth who wouldn’t consider sneakers/trainers as being pinnacle of any comfortable outfit. What do consider comfy when it comes to fashion? God Bless!

Cream of the Crop

Another pair of cropped pants. I think I own so many pairs it’s ridiculous! From trousers, to denim, and several jumpsuit versions too! This one that is both a lightweight denim and and jumpsuit. It’s perfect for the hot, lazy days of Summer but I added the jacket to help combat the frigidness of the air conditioners. Do you have any favorite styles that you’ve been rocking this Summer? God Bless!

Ok, let me just get this explanation out of the way before anything is said. I knew I wanted to rock these sneakers with the dress but I just couldn’t make up my mind what color. I decided to give them a test run in the photos and then decide which I would actually wear out of the house. I actually preferred how the mint popped and went with them. So now you can stop worrying about if I actually went out wearing two different color sneakers, lol. Don’t get me wrong, I probably would have styled the look this way but if you know me, you know I don’t like drawing attention to myself. I can just imagine the looks stares I would have received on the streets! On the other hand, depending on the occasion/venue¬† I was going to, if I deemed it “appropriate”, I would have done it! Anywho, the colors of the dress is what grabbed my attention 1st. Then once I saw the style with the cute back detail, it was a winner! I’m definitely a dress girl! How about you? God Bless!

This is a music festival outfit. No, really, I actually wore it to one and not one of the times when I just looked like I should have been at a music festival. I went on a little thrifting spree (x2) and scooped up a few pairs of high waist shorts and jeans. Some of the jeans are going to be cut into shorts and them some I will leave as long pants. I haven’t been thrifting in over a year so it was fun to get back at it and come away with some good finds. The sneakers are the fraternal twins to the high top pair worn here. Well, I’m out for now! Talk to you soon! God Bless!
