Metallic Tweed Jacket - Who Rocked It?

Greetings Fashionistas,

Welcome to the weekend bay-bee!!!! Yesterday was my Friday so I'm having a fab morning :o I have a fun filled weekend ahead as my family is in town for the Florida Classic! My alma mater, Florida A&M University, versus BCU (their name won't be spelled out on my blog, lol). The rivalry is friendly, but we go hard :-) Wish us luck!

Below, I spotted this super cute jacket from Bebe on both Nikki Reed and Jamie Chung. I remember seeing this jacket on their website as I was perusing the other day (still trying to refrain from shopping). This metallic tweed number is so chic and I love it! I placed it on my wish list. I think the colors in the jacket are subdued enough to make it a great option for both work and play. Check out the ladies rocking the jacket below.


Nikki wears her blazer over an all black ensemble. The structured jacket adds a bit of polish and becomes the focal point of her look. Those shoulder pads add the perfect lift!
 
 
 
Jamie creates a preppy look with her jacket and I love the air of sophistication!!! The beaded trim provides a nice contrast on the garment.
 
 
 
 
 
If you want to scoop up this lovely jacket, head on over to Bebe now!
 
 
 
Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
 
 
 
Adeus!

Outfit: Full Skater Skirt, Vintage Clutch, and Fedora

Greetings,

The titles of my blog posts are so unbelievable 'blah', LOL. But, I just can't go through the trouble of thinking of something catchy each post. Okay, let me be honest, let's just say I am not that creative, lol.

As you all know, I'm team overdressed, so it should not be a surprise that I wore the look below to go grocery shopping with the bf on Sunday.

I'm sooooo crazy! But I had to work this weekend so I did not have the pleasure of playing dress up or having date night with the babe. I was having a styling withdrawal, LOL!!!
 
It was 85 degrees on Sunday.....this morning, it's 42 degrees. Florida weather is so bipolar!!!
 
 
 


Why did it take me so long to discover the awesomeness of leopard???? Definitely a killer neutral!

Outfit: Turban, Blazer, and Accessory Overload

Greetings Fashionists,

Hey, hey, hey it's Fri-day!!! I have a busy weekend ahead of me and I'm also 'on call' at the j.o.b. *insert deep sigh here*. On Sunday, I attended a meeting of my local pharmacy alumni chapter. I had to build my simple look around my turban because guess who waited until the last minute to do their 'natural hair' *raises hand*.



Every time I wear this necklace I feel like I'm wearing soooo many accessories!







The blazer, skinnies, and heels are my absolute favorite 'go to' outfit.

Outfit: Polka Dots and Plaid

Greetings Fashionistas,

We made it to another lovely Friday folks. This weekend my beautiful niece is headed to her first Homecoming dance. I totally forgot she's 16!!! Good lawd where does the time go??? Anyhew, she's going to look lovely and like a 16 year old because my brother doesn't play....and neither does the rest of the family, lol.



Every now and then I venture into print mixing......I'm not that comfortable with rocking the more statement making combos, however, I don't mind wearing a classic print combo like the polka dots and plaid above :-)
 
 

......look at those guns son!!!! My biceps are looking fierce, lol.
 
 
 

I added a blazer because I was headed out to dinner and I'm just never that comfortable with so much skin showing. And I believe a blazer just pulls the look together for a more grown and chic appearance.






 
I took these photos right before the sun went down....hence the serious shadows.
