A Fit & Flare NYE?!


Hello!  Can you believe 2014 is around the corner? Well I am ready for a fresh start.  One thing I'm remembering as we go into 2014 is, those who want to be in your life will be and even when it's difficult, they'll find a way.  With this, I'm thankful for family, few close friends I have, the new friends I've made from blogging, and also thankful for the toxic relationships no longer in my life.

What are your New Year eve (NYE) plans?  Although I live in Texas, I'll be in Austin, another Texas city.  I chose to pack this fit & flare dress as a NYE option because it's a nice mix of not casual yet not too dressy because being in another city and not knowing the exact plans, I thought it'd work with various plans.  I thought the shimmer in it was a nice touch for NYE.  I added the colored necklace to enhance the blue, a black clutch and black shoes to complete the feminine look. By the way, fit and flare dresses are flattering and great for hiding hips when needed yet accentuating the waist.

A Structured Mini!


Hi everyone! Am I the only one who feels like this Christmas is getting here so soon? I love Christmas but although I love it, I'm already not looking forward to it being gone.  I love what Christmas signifies from a religious standpoint and I also love the cheeriness in the air, the decorations, getting together, and yes the gift exchanges because I'll think of it as one more gesture of love...although I do agree that in the western world, it has become a bit too commercialized. 

I wore this outfit and thought to use it for a post because the skirt is unique in my wardrobe.  I love skirts and although I was a bit hesitant with this, I wore it because I think fashion is sometimes wearing what you might not immediately gravitate towards.  Since the structured mini skirt stands out on it's own, I chose to keep the rest of the look minimal which I think is best.  I achieved that with black pieces, a bodysuit, clutch, tights, boots, and simple jewelry.

Leopard Split!


 
Hello! I hope your week is going great so far.  I'd taken a short break from doing a blog post to focus on school and I've missed it.  If you follow me on instagram, you'll see I posted a picture days ago which stated I'd passed my nurse practitioner boards.  I started this blog while in graduate school, so to be in this position still blogging and done with the program makes me so happy.  The program was challenging but I think nothing good comes easy and we are all capable of achieving what we set our minds to, of course with determination, hard work, and personally I think God. 
 
About the outfit, I wanted to pair this leopard skirt with a black top which would be my usual choice but I opted for the blue blouse instead to add a pop of color as I think it's ok to use leopard as a neutral sometimes.  I added the oversize black clutch and my new favorite black shoes to complete the look.

Happy birthday to me with a giveaway!


While watching the news the other day, I saw it stated the gorgeous actor Paul walker had died in a car accident.  This was on the last day of November which made me think of how fortunate I was to make it to December & be blessed to celebrate another birthday!  Every birthday is a blessing I'm thankful for.  As of this birthday, I plan to continue striving to be a better person.  
Anyway this is a simple dress I wore to one of my birthday dinners.  I wanted a simple look and I know I achieved it.  I think keeping it simple at times is ok and does not take away from the look.
