Leopard Maxi Skirt!

Hello hope your week is going ok. I am looking forward to the end of this week because I get to have some days off for the holidays which I am excited about to mainly rest and just enjoy family at home.  My baby has been having a bit of sleep regression which affects my sleep too so the holidays is a welcomed break for rest.  Also, I am still trying to wrap up Christmas shopping too but through it all, I am trying to remember the reason for the season, Jesus.

Speaking of holidays, this outfit and the skirt especially is perfect for the season besides being on trend with the leopard but also because the waist band stretches and it's forgiving.  I paired the leopard print skirt with neutrals and a classic white shirt keeping the focus on the skirt.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.  Wishing you all a very merry christmas!


Shirt dress in all Black!

Hello and hope your week has been going ok so far! This is busy season for my work so i'm having long days at work and finding time to blog among everything else just shows me that I enjoy doing this.  They say something like when you love what you do it feels less like work rt?! And I have to say this goes with blogging and my pediatric provider day job.

Anyway about this look, I used to not love wearing all black being dark skinned but I have realized that it works on our skin like most colors and now I like it.  I think all black like mot monochrome looks can make a statement.  With this look, I paired this front tie black shirt dress I'd had in my closet for over 1-2 years and never worn pairing it with black over the knee boots and bag.  I love shirt dresses by the way.  What do you think about all black or shirt dresses? Thanks for stopping by!


Birthday Girl 2019!

Happy birthday to me! I'm thankful for my life and my accomplishments and pray for more blessings.  God I'm grateful for my babies and the love from hubby, family and friends. 

With this new age like with any new birth day, I think of what I'd like to either embrace more of or work on.  An incident happened yesterday with a coworker which got me thinking, if i'd just said no, it would've avoided a lot more issues so the first thing I want to do more of is to say no when I want to say no.  Sometimes when I'm asked of certain things, I think about it and want to say no for different reasons but then I find myself saying maybe, let me see, ok instead of no so I'll be working on this.  Also, like the saying goes, I want to work hard and play hard.  I believe I work hard but I don't always make time for fun and that can be with my family or friends and I want to change this.

Anyway do you prefer a low key laid back type of birthday or more of an outing/party-like? I will be working so not much today but hubby has some dinner and going to a show plans this weekend.

About this look, I bought this dress when I was pregnant and was skeptical of how it'd fit after baby but I knew I generally liked this style of dresses and the style did not disappoint me post baby.  It's short, fun, flirty yet still classy with the sleeves.  The weather allowed me to style it like this by simply adding the sock boots which emphasized the dress being a mini and added my vintage dior saddle bag.   Although I wore it like this, I can also see it being styled with tights, or OTK boots, layering with a coat or so and holding a bigger bag.  I find this style of dresses to work with most people so I'll link similar if not able to find the exact.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
