Hello and hope you had a merry christmas with loved ones.  I had a great one although I was not feeling well, it was still nice spending time with my parents, Jason and family.  I think I've always said this but will repeat again and that is to always remember the reason for the season.  We should be thankful for this life we are given and live it to the fullest.  
About this look, I thought the tulle skirt is something happy and festive and thought since it's the holidays, it is appropriate although I think tulle can be worn year round. I paired with a button down shirt and black heels and bag to complete the look.  Hope you like and wish you a happy season.  Thanks for stopping by!


Add a Bow on It!

Hello! Hope you had a good weekend.  A friend treated me to the movies for my bday and we saw allied. I loved the movie and thought it's a great story of love, betrayal, forgiveness, and sometimes doing things for love that we thought we could not do.  I think doing a lot for love (whether it's friendship love, significant other love, family love etc) is great but to always remember not to do so much that it affects us negatively but time has a way of showing us what really matters afterall.
About this look, in trying to put some holiday looks together, I thought the color of the bodysuit top is appropriate for the holidays and year round really and loved the fun bow detail of the skirt thinking the holidays are fun after all.  I added the beautiful babyroz bracelets and bag to complete the look! Thanks for stopping by!


Birthday 2016!

Happy birthday to me! For as long as I can remember, I've only had fond memories of my birthdays so birthdays have always been special to me.  I have to first start by thanking God for giving me another year of life.  As I get older, I realize a few things I'd liked to share as I reflect back after all it only helps me see things clearer as I move forward. 
1) We have to be appreciative but not too comfortable in the sense that we can always do more and be more.  I am incredibly grateful today because I can truly say that I do not need anything, at least nothing that can be bought.  It's not because I have so much but because I am content with what I have.  Whenever I feel bad about something frivolous I might want or think I need although none presently, I think of those that have it worse and instantly appreciate more.   
2) I'm certain my parents, and Jason are my best friends
3)When someone shows you who they are the first time, believe them
4)With friends, quality over quantity.  And I believe it's not how long you've known a person but how you connect and they prove themselves to you in the amount of time you've known them.
5)Spending time with yourself is ok and has it's advantages.  I can say I am now ok with spending time by myself.  Don't get me wrong because I do enjoy spending time with family and friends but I'd always wanted to be comfortable being a friend to myself and I can say that I am just fine with that presently.  I'd seen a quote and loved it.  It stated "if you make friends with yourself, you'll never be alone".  
Anyway, as I enter into a new age, I pray that whatever amazing plans God has for me come to fruition.  I'm off to eat cake so thanks for stopping by! (ps. I'll do an outfit post with more pictures and details soon)


Stripes for Work!

"There is no substitute for hard work"

Hello and hope your week is going well.  Mine has been great as I'd shared on instagram stories that my parents visited for thanksgiving and it was lovely.  The one thing my parents have always showed me and continue to show me besides love is hard work.  I acknowledge I've been blessed with their contribution in getting me where I am today but I'm always reminded of the importance of working hard, being independent and not having to rely on anyone.  I'll share what drives me on the next post.
Speaking of hard work, I chose to share a work inspired look today with the pencil skirt and button down shirt which I think are always appropriate for work as long as they're not too tight.  I added the striped heels to match the striped shirt and a big bag that's great for work.  Although this is a work look, the pieces can also be dressed differently for an outing.  As always, thanks for visiting!


Feathered & Unbothered!

Hello and happy thanksgiving week! So much to be thankful for and happy I will be spending this thanksgiving with my visiting parents and creating memories of a lifetime.  As the years go by, I cherish time with them more as well as with family and friends.  I wish you a happy thanksgiving!

About this look, I wanted to wear this feathered skirt and thought to keep the rest of the outfit simple with the focus on the skirt.  I think a feathered skirt is a piece of clothing which is fun and great for the holidays and although I feel this way, I think finding one on sale is enough in ones closet as it's not a piece that's worn often.  By the way, this look was worn this time last year but never shared so I'm sharing now.  Hope you like and thanks for stopping by!

A Tie Front Dress & Loafers!

"One day at a time"

Dress- Agaci/old (Similar, Similar), Shoes- Windsor (Similar, Similar), Clutch- The Limited/old (Similar, Similar).

Hello! As much as I love dressing up, I also love comfortable easy clothes like this tie front dress and sporty platform loafers which is what I would typically wear to a lunch date or a movie when warm.  An outfit like this also helps on days when I feel I have a lot going on at the same time which sometimes happens, and I have to remind myself to take it one day at a time so reminding you to do thesame.  Hope you have a good week and thanks for stopping by!
