Outfit: Rust Colored Blazer and Swing Skirt

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I've been rocking my natural hair for about 5 months now. It's been.....a struggle. Don't get me wrong, I'm super proud to rock my kinks, but let me remind you that I work in healthcare, not a salon. No shade, it's just affirming that I know nothing about hair, LOL. The last few weeks I've been wearing my fro out and it's been fun and frustrating. The shrinkage is so real! When I'm putting together a look, I don't want to work around my hair. SMH

The fro worked with the look I put together below for church last Sunday. It was quite windy so I was aptly 'Gone with the wind fabulous', lol.



Blazers paired with anything still remains my favorite look. Polished, simple, yet stylish.
 
 
 


I just LOVE this skirt. The drop waist, flirty bottom is so feminine and chic!
 
 
 
 

This bag tho!!!! No wait, these heels tho! A couple of my favorite accessories! Ahhhhh, the power of leopard print.

Outfit: Sweater Dress and Infinity Scarf

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!!! It's been really warm for the past couple of days but I am going to share pics from about a week ago when it dipped down into the low 40s (brrrrrh)!!! You know we Floridians aren't used to that, LOL.



This look is what I wore to church. I couldn't find the belt that I wanted to wear so I just switched it up and used my oversized infinity scarf as the focal point of my outfit.
 
 
 



This bag has no structure whatsoever!!! But I still love it, LOL.
 
 
 

I love the combination of blue and brown....especially for interiors so I decided to combine the two together for my look.

Outfit: the Epitome of Casual

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I was really busy this past weekend. I was on call, I had a meeting Friday evening, Saturday I participated in a MLK parade and program. Then I spent some quality time with my niece and nephews. Sunday was church and meal prep day!!! You guys would be soooo proud of me. I still can't believe I did it, LOL. Here's hoping for a permanent lifestyle change ;-)

So last week (before the start of my healthy eating) the bf and I trekked it to our local hibachi buffet. I literally added a vest, earrings, and heels to my loungewear. It was one of those days, lol.




I love a simple, polished look.
 
 
 


I took horrible photos so you can't see the overlapping front panel on these pants. They're really chic and I love them!

Outfit: Grids!

Greetings Fashionistas,

My sister and I ran some errands and this is what I wore below, lol. My sis and I are total opposites. Although she appreciates fashion, she will throw on a pair of sweats and a tshirt quicker thank you can blink!!!



I think I'm falling for another dress trend.....the swing style! I like to twirl around like I'm a little girl (don't judge me). However, these dresses can be a pain if its windy!
 
 
 


My grandma loved this dress and told me that she expects to see it in her closet ASAP! She's such a diva!
 
 
 

Can we pause for a moment of silence because these booties just KILLED it!!!!!!! Ladies, I buy high and low...basically whatever looks fab to me. These booties were less than $30! So haute!
 
 
 


This $6 floppy was one of my, "Oh my gosh I'm at the beach and I forgot my hat at home" purchases. So happy I forgot my hat!

Outfit: Trench Coat Obsession

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I really, really like trench coats. Now this is quite unfortunate for me since I live in sunny Florida, but I will find a way to incorporate them ;-)


See....I pulled out my new fav coat as soon as the wind blew cool air over 15 mph, LOL.
 
 
 


I wanted to go with a semi-grunge look, hence the addition of the flannel and combat boots.
 
 
 
 


I subconsciously bring a little glam to most of my looks through my statement making accessories. What can I say....I'm team overdressed!!!!
