Tweedy Not Tweety

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!

I love a shoe with ties that wrap up your legs but sometimes they can be a pain when they won’t stay tied, as you can see! Anyway, loving how the subtle tan/brown hues play against the light washed denim. The choker is one of the newest styles of accessories that are out right now. It’s not only a choker, but it incorporates these black laces that I tied into a bow. Some of the others that I’ve seen and actually purchased, wraps around the neck and just hangs loose on each side. I’ll bring it to your attention when I wear it. Until the next time, God Bless!

I’ve been called Cookie Monster, Barney, and Violet (from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory-btw,one of my favs). All by Javar. He always has some smart and funny comment about my colors, lol. He doesn’t ever talk about my personal style but he will clown me on my colors. I guess he’s used to seeing my dress the way I do which can sometimes be “not the norm”. Anyway, I don’t quite know what to call this color myself. It reads a bit different in photos but also in person, depending on the lightening. I guess some might call it cobalt blue or perhaps a shade of purple. I’m not sure but I like it. It’s very vibrant and makes me happy. Isn’t that what colors should do, brighten our mood? What do you think of bright/vibrant colors for your wardrobe? Are you bold enough to wear bold colors? Or are neutrals more your comfort zone? Later for now. 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!

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!

Bold stripes was on the menu for the day! I love the semi-loose, relaxed fit of this dress. And the stripes, both normal and wavy, give it a circus vibe (which I love!). Dug out these old booties that I’ve had for quite some time. They were one of those investment items that are basic enough to never go out of style. Until the next time, stay warm East Coasters and God Bless!

Nothing goes together better than stripes and animal print. I consider them both neutrals and the contrast of the to is spot on (no pun intended) to me. I had to through on the turbo for an unexpected pop of the silver lame. It’s so 70’s disco. Just a bit of fun with accessories! Thanks for coming back for another year of the blog! God Bless!

I know you’re not used to seeing me in form-fitting clothing but this dress¬† is so comfy I just couldn’t resist! And the length is what really attracted me to it. I wore it to our Christmas festivities for the job. We had a full and active day planned so I wanted to not only be stylish and put together but comfy. Oh yeah, how was your holidays? I guess I can officially wish you guys a Happy New Year since this is my first post of the year! Hope you all had a great time with your families and got some good gifts (and gave some good gifts). God Bless!

A few photos that I didn’t have a chance to post due to a very hectic and busy schedule. Please forgive the poor quality, I don’t know what happened with the lightening (and the weird lip thing that I didn’t realize I was doing, lol). This strapless jumpsuit was worn to a graduation a few weeks ago. It was a bit difficult to decide on a shoe to wear to compliment the length. It was too long for flats but not quite long enough for the heels that I chose (now I see after looking at these pics). The thing was, the heel height was fine until I pulled the top up to a presentable location that I was comfortable with. Anyway, jumpsuits are always on trend. From casual, daily wear to being more dressed up for an occasion or a night out. It’s all in how you style it! Try a jumpsuit! They look great on everyone if the fit is right! 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!
