So here we are again….Wednesday and me feeling bad that I’m not doing more blogging. I mean I do have the time, but real talk I’ve been feeling super blah and lazy. And you know whats great when you feel that way? A dress. Yes a freaking dress. Its the easiest piece of apparel to just throw on, add accessories (as seen in photos) and go. So before I devolve and start venting here are the deets.
Dress LuLa Roe (ummm OMFG they are NOT lying about comfort)
Shoes Vans (Old)
Jewelry Chloe+Isabel (Old) and Bauble Bar
Always leave some words and stuff LOL
BTW those glasses I mentioned yest by Warby Parker…would be KILLER with this outfit…IJS
So the other day I wrote about going to dinner on Sunday with my peeps. Well here is what I wore. I know that I often just do posts about my work ensembles and want to switch it up a bit. Casual and comfy is my weekend mantra as during the week I am usually in slack and blouses, I mean you see the blog posts. BTW I ❤ this tee from ASOS and I may just cry the day I have to retire it. As a well endowed woman I find it challenging to get tops that fit my bust and are long enough to cover that little something extra I keep stashed around the middle. It’s like cash in the mattress…W.E hahaha
Want to get away but don’t have the funds? Check out my new collection inspired by the Amalfi coast in Italy. All about bright pops of color and semi precious jewels abound and are sure to delight all your senses. When life gives you lemons….
Its Friday, which means payday, casual work attire and start to a weekend of netflixing. Oh and its April fools… I’m sure like many of you, I wake up stare into the abyss known as my closet and think I have nothing to wear. Yet there are hangers full of items. I mean I still need to be fairly profesh ya know? So button downs and blouses are my staples, and I usually wear them on weekends. I’m all about versatility and need items that can do both. Plus mama’s on a budget so what’s old is new again! I wish I could say April fools, no budget for me.
So spring is almost here and that means a wardrobe change, a restyling of self, and things that I’d like to buy. As I’ve gotten older it’s become more important to invest in quality pieces than to constantly buy disposable goods. Ironic considering that I work in the fashion industry and that is the model it operates on. Now there are some good sites if your into sustainability and being a conscious shopper (Zady anyone?) and of course luxury brands. I wrote awhile back about a movie called True Cost and it realty impacted my thinking about shopping for clothing. I’ve never been opposed to spending more to have a quality item that will last, as it makes more financial sense. I’m sure that many of you notice how often the same items make it back into blog posts. Lets face it unless items are being gifted or you make 6 figures you really can’t afford to be buying new items for each day.
So now that I’ve ranted a bit, here are some of the items I’d like to add into my closet this year. I know that many of these items will have a strong ROI (return on investment) if taken care of and they are core staples. It’s all about that foundation, so invest in good core pieces (even accessories) and they will take you into the next 5 or long years. I mean I bought a basic coach leather bag yeeeeeeeears ago, and guess what I take that bish everrrrywhere…so heres my haul for 2016…
Last night I went out to cafe el presidente with my peeps and this is what I wore. I feel like I’m always giving you guys week day looks but never my weekend looks. As you can tell I’m super casual on weekends, no makeup no fluff. I also got in my new bracelets from E.Kammeyer and I ❤️ them! So as you can tell weekends I’m a jeans and t shirt kinda gal.
If your in the flatiron area check out Cafe El Presidente as the guacamole is on point as well as the crispy fish tacos.
So recently I’ve made a crap ton of life changes including my job. I got out of where I was at and have moved on to a better role at a better place and I’m excited to actually start learning things. Plus I had some personal drama, and well you know how that can be…
Today I’m about that classic NYC chic, all black eurrrythang. Although to really accomplish this look id need a Dylan Lex statement necklace (like the one Bey rocked in Formation??). So here are the deets
Alloy is one of the few places that has black denim year round and in a variety of sizes, However the rise sucks, and I’m always pulling up my pants. But at $15 bucks I guess I can’t complain too much right? So now that I’ve changed my life direction hopefully I can be giving you guys some more of my awesomeness via social media. So hit like, maybe drop a comment and peep me on the social scene!
