5 Ways to Conquer the “Blazer” Look.

5 Ways to Conquer the “Blazer” Look.

September 11, 2019

I’ll let you in on a little secret. The “It” item for Fall has made itself clear. And no it’s not a bag or a designer dress or even those groovy denim bell bottoms you may have purchased this summer, it’s a blazer! That’s right the piece you’ve probably had in your closet for years. The one you think you only have to dress conservative with. This item is exploding on the street style scene. Every fashion influencer or blogger has been spotted wearing their blazers. And I have 5 simple but inventive ways to style the blazer with some things you already have in your closet.

To make the blazer look stylish, pair it with a black top, some fitted jeans and pair of heels. “CONFIDENCE” is what it screams! This outfit works everywhere from the office to the front row of Fashion week.

Next try it with denim cut off shorts and graphic hoodie to make your look cool and fashion-forward. You’re sure to turn heads with this trendy look.

Hoodie and Cut off Denim shorts

One of my personal favorites is to pair with a skirt. I chose a mid-length one and a graphic tee. As the skirt was once reserved for business people, this season it feels fresh and cool. It adds a little bit of sass to the look, or you can opt for a mini-skirt to keep it modern.

Mix the blazer with a mini dress and OTK boots to add some sexy to your look. Perfect for a date night with your man.

Finally try a turtle neck and add some bold earrings. It adds a perfect level of sophistication to the more casual style.

As you can see with simple additions you’re able to transform your “blazer” look into a night on the town, a day at the office, or even a networking event. You can also add your spin or spunk to each style to show your true individuality. Continue to stay motivated with each piece you put together.

Lounging Layover

Lounging Layover

June 19, 2019

So this is my first trip to Las Vegas. And I’m used to taking one way flights. Well this time, I scheduled a flight with a layover. The layover is in Denver, CO and it’s about 14 hours until we get on the flight to Vegas. UGH! I was looking forward to a straight flight to Vegas so that I can enjoy my little vacation right away. However, I had to prepare myself for this minor delay in Denver.

I chose to wear this comfy lounge set. I got this set from my girl at plasticsboutique.co. This yellow “Making Me Angry” set is perfect to wear in an airport all day. Before this vacation started, I wanted to wear jeans and then I remembered that I will be in an airport for almost half a day, so I would need to wear something comfortable and cute.

My girl’s online boutique is a great place to shop for newer trends and styles for all you fashionistas. I think this lounge set is great for this layover. It’s a two piece set that is comfortable enough to sleep, walk, and rest in if you’re going to be at an airport for more than 12 hours. Ladies if you need ideas for an outfit for the airport, go with a comfortable style. Something that will be easy to put on or take off, in case of constant runs to the bathroom. Also, keep in mind if you have to rest (nap) during your layover make sure what you’re wearing is not only comfortable, but something that will not get wrinkled fast.

You also don’t want to appear as if you’ve been in airport all day. Taking a second look at me you wouldn’t have thought I camped out in the airport for more than 12 hours. A couple of things to keep in mind, is if you have a carry on, you may want to keep a hoodie or sweater in it. If you’re someone like me, I get cold real fast. And of course the airport has the a/c up high as hell. Also pair your lounge set with some comfy low top tennis shoes. I’m not really big on tennis shoes anymore. But this was a good choice of shoe for the airport. One thing about wearing tennis shoes, is when you take your shoes off to go through security you will be wearing socks so your bare feet don’t have to touch the ground.

I’m all for going on vacations, but these layovers…. When choosing your attire for a flight or a flight with a crazy layover like the one I had, please be sure to dress comfortably.

Reflecting on myself

Reflecting on myself

It’s been one year since I’ve been in a physical altercation with my sons’ father. At one point I didn’t think it was an issue to put hands on each other. But I as I reflect on the toxic relationship, I didn’t have a clear understanding of “love”. Throughout this journey with Making Munee, I’ve learned to not only love myself but maintain that confidence in my life. Confidence was one thing I was lacking.

There was a time in life, where I wasn’t satisfied with how I was living. I was overworking myself, trying to finish college, taking care of y two sons all while being in a toxic relationship. And around this time last year, I felt that I had been through enough. I just began my blog, but I wasn’t fully committed to staying confident. I had let myself fall back into some old habits. I do want to say I am doing better than ever. The feeling I have when I look back on my life, is a feeling of relief.

There are so many burdens that have been lifted, I feel like there is no turning back. With each blog post my confidence boosts to a ten!! I try to create a look that not only compliments my self, but also helps with boosting my confidence. Whether it be a dress, legging, or even the hottest shoes. Every article of clothing I put together creates an outfit that displays the confidence I have. I got this “Fawn White Feather Skirt Bodycon Dress” from Pretty Little Thing.

Loving myself more and more!!!

Think Pink

Think Pink

Im backkk!! It’s been a while since I’ve really had the time to come and discuss what I’m wearing and how I’m feeling. Im focusing on positivity and remaining stress free in life.

There are so many things I have to deal with in a week, whether it’s work (12 hour shifts), being a mom, focusing on goals, and building my brand, that I’ve learned I need to balance it all without stressing myself out in the process. Most often I’m always panicking about where my life needs to be. I’m continually working on being positive and I strongly believe in giving myself a break.

So here I am embracing the sun and welcoming the spring weather with this “Hot Pink” jumpsuit from Fashion Nova. I’m trying think positive with learning my own personal style more and more. I usually prefer a one piece, it’s more convenient when you’re getting dressed. I added these high top tennis shoes from Ego Shoes and this stylish clear backpack from Walmart. Check that out, Walmart I was amazed with the style. This translucent effect allows you to show off whatever you add in your backpack. This look can easily be worn to a basketball game or a fashion show. Any event where you would enjoy flaunting those curves in this one piece jumpsuit.

Today marks two years since I began this journey with confidence and starting this fashion blog! At this point I’m going to continue to embrace this confidence and continuing to stay positive. I’m going to continue to show off this confidence with what I’m wearing…

Think pink and think positive!!

Hey ladies. Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Spring weather. I am so loving this warm weather. Perfect for sheer body suits and leggings. As my wardrobe continues to grow, I find myself shopping more at Fashion Nova. They’re clothes fit me and not only that, they always have great deals. Which is one reason why I continue shopping there.

This outfit consists of a few pieces from Fashion Nova:

  • “Give you what you need denim jacket”
  • “Don’t faux with me active leggings”
  • “Minimalistic Bodysuit”

I always find myself buying a lot of black. So had to add this denim jack to the look to keep it from looking so dull. This distressed half jacket is perfect for this outfit. It shows off enough of the bodysuit. I love body suits and leggings together. They’re a comfortable combination if you want to party, or even if you just wanna hand out with your girls at the mall.

The statement piece of the outfit are the shoes:

“Bijou Diamante Embellished Ankle Boots” in Black Faux Suede

These ankle boots are dazzling to say the least. The detail of it makes me feel pretty. And once you walk in the room with these boots you will guarantee all eyes gravitate downwards. I grabbed these from an onlie boutique Public Desire. I’m just getting hip to this boutique. They have a ton of variety of shoes. Anything you want, I’m pretty sure they have. They also run great deals. Be sure to check them out for the latest sandals, booties, and pumps for the summer!!

Mention my name ‘Muneerah Saleem’ and you can receive 30% off. You can’t beat that. Great shoes and a great deal!! Make sure to grab something that sets you from the rest. Something that is dazzling and fun!

“Munee bag, Munee bag, Munee bag…” I feel like this song was made for me . Inspired by Cardi B this look helps me jump out of my comfort zone and allows me to play with different styles. This rock star look features the “Feels so Classic Faux Leather Jumpsuit” from Fashion Nova. This jumpsuit is perfect to go out in. The material is stretchy enough to show off your best dance moves!! And if you’re listening to Cardi B’s new album you’ll probably find yourself on the dance floor. I personally like this new album. And I have played the songs that I like in blast st least once a day!! Music does something to  my soul. And with the right outfit that confidence comes full force!!

I tried to use as much accessories to exaggerate the edge look. These raw gold studded platform boots I grabbed at Public Desire. Cute and comfortable win for me!

Not only am I fashion blogger, I’m a working woman and entrepreneur!! So Cardi B’s song helps stay motivated to stay in my bag!That is a goal for some of us to continue to stack this paper.
