Outfit: Vested in Culottes

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

It's been consistently 100 degrees or higher in my locale. I have not been in the mood to take pictures. Not because I haven't felt like styling any new looks.......but because I'm sick of sweating out a perfectly good outfit due to the 10 photos I'm posing for!!! I seriously need the sun to dial it down a bit, lol.

This will probably be the last time you see any layers in me for the rest of the summer. I am all for committing to a look.....but my goodness I almost tapped out. The wool culottes were an epic fail, LMBO!!!

I took my hair out after this so curve those negative thoughts, lol.

I love these pants....and these heels are simple yet make a really great statement. Class and sex appeal. Sign me up please!!!!

Greetings, Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!! For my first weekend of the summer I'm headed to a water park. Although I live in a sunny locale, summer just makes me want to get outside and have fun in the sun (with a lot of shade).

I'm embarrassed to say this....but I must confess. I wore this outfit to the store. The only thing I did was switch the clutch to a satchel and remove the statement necklace. SMH
But honestly, don't you just want to dress up sometimes to go nowhere??? It was kind of fun. At first I was nervous but then I was like..."girl you overdress for all events so this is nothing", LOL!

Yes I know this hair was at the end of it's life....I gave it an honorable funeral.
Sidebar: I'm looking super thick around my middle. I did have some Pringles before I took these photos but good grief....this reality check is just what I needed!!!

Soooo......these heels are eye-catching, but NOT comfortable. How weird! At least they received many compliments while out and about.

Outfit: Silk Blazer and Silk Shorts

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

It is effen hot as Hades!!! I walked outside yesterday and it felt as if I walked directly into an oven. As far as my outfit choices....I've been selecting breezy fabrics and those that provide a coolness against my skin. It doesn't make the stifling heat go away, but I am able to tolerate it a wee bit better!

This silk blazer is my absolute fav!!! It's so chic, classy, and of course it's a very versatile item.


I paired the blazer with a pair of silk dress shorts. I assume the color of these shorts is a cross between smoky grey and sage green. My heels and clutch were the perfect complement to the mystery hue.

Outfit: Easy Breezy

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!!!!! It's been a very good week. However, I'm really looking forward to the weekend. It's time for some fun in the sun, a good waterpark adventure, and shopping!!! Oh wait....forget about the shopping. I'm supposed to be on a "shopping hiatus". Smh

I met up with a homie for his birthday dinner and I went with a casual chic look. However, when I get there I find out that I'm NOT apart of team overdressed. *insert hissy fit here* My buddy neglected to tell me he was going for a themed, fashionably forward look. So rude, lol.

I love these printed pants. Not only will they go with a variety of tops in my closet (yay for versatility), they will also allow me to be comfortably relaxed and tres' chic!

Although I was not a member of team overdressed....I still brought the casual chic vibe.

Outfit: Canary Yellow and Royal Booties

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

Welcome back from the weekend!!! I'd like to share a colorful spring look I put together this past weekend. See below for photos :-)

When I first bought these booties I thought they were blue. However, when I put them on this past Saturday they looked more purple!!! So when I style them again I will just ensure they complement whatever look I create and call it a day, lol.
Sidenote: That heel is a beast....figuratively and literally!!!

I LOVE this's so cute, comfortable, and just uplifts my spirit every time I wear it. Must be that bright yellow.

Photo blooper!!! Eyes wide shut, LOL! I was feeling myself :-)
