G.I. Jane takes on Fall

G.I. Jane takes on Fall

September 30, 2019

I’m pretty sure camo print is made especially for Fall fashion and I’m sharing all of my faves on this blog today. There’s so many ways to style this print, all slightly different from the next. Whether you’re rocking it with pants, OTK boots, or topping your look off with a floppy hat, there’s so many ways to style the camo this Fall without overdoing it.

Layer your camo skinnies with a denim top and some nude pumps. We’ll call this Camo chic. This style is effortlessly chic while still being casual. My favorite combo!

Pair your camo bodysuit with a blazer set and add a floppy hat and chunky heel booties to make your look stylish. I’m wearing the “Move Forward Blazer Set” from Fashion Nova with this look.

For that GI Jane look I paired this white bodysuit with these “Diva Boy Wear” camo pants. For an exclusive look I added these “Mixed Feelings Booties” also from Fashion Nova. Cleveland’s Fall days have been pretty warm so this bodysuit is OK to wear. Feel free to add a leather or denim jacket to the outfit.

On a cool day, grunge up your look with a warm camo hoodie and add OTK boots. A neutral color brings out the camo print that screams street style, which is great for Fall. Check out the “Filthy Genius” brand for all your hoodie favs.

Camo looks great with neutral colors. I added this neutral hat and nude pumps with this “Leilan Midi Dress“. You want to show a little more skin when you’re wearing camo, so it doesn’t look like you’re just wearing army fatigues.

Camo is a for sure trend that’s hitting the stores this Fall. You really can’t go wrong with adding camouflage pieces to your outfits this Fall.

So what do you all think about the camouflage trend this fall?! Love it? Hate it? Considering it now? My goal is always to encourage you to try something new with your wardrobe. Hopefully these looks have given you some inspiration, but remember to keep it: simple, sophisticated, and chic!

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.

Black Top and Heels

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.

Graphic tee and Midi-skirt

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.

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!!

“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.

This look was fun! It’s always fun to dress up. Just doing my make up and styling this brings so much joy and confidence fashion.

Birthday Blues

Birthday Blues

Here I am 29 years later in life. As I think of some of the things I have achieved as a young woman, …. I feel great. And I get excited for all the things yet to come. It’s funny people always tell me “you have the best birthday”. But I think they’re only looking at the party aspect of it. I always think dang my birthday is the last day of the year, literally. It takes so long for it to come. And when it does, it’s over just like that.

Well this year is a little different I’m getting older and learning to recognize more things I am thankful for in life. I am loving the ways in which I’m growing and I’m learning from my experiences. Now that the year is coming to an end, I have to reflect back on what I’ve learned this past year. #1 Rule to myself and I would also advise to you is “Be yourself… unapologetically”. Don’t apologize for being you. One of the biggest things I have overcame is learning to be myself, even when I know others don’t like it or approve of it. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. I have to live for myself (my sons as well but that’s a definite) and be happy with how am I as a person. It’s easy to say you can’t control what others think or say about you. But you can control how you feel about you! Strive to observe and witness others’ opinions, rather than being attached to them.

Find your personal style that feels great to you. If you like that banana colored ruffled blouse, but you don’t think anyone else will… wear it anyway. If you think that particular blouse looks great, but you can’t rock it how you want to because you’re afraid of what someone might say or think?! You need to think again. I want you to dress your best in the clothing that feels “you”. Just because someone does not agree with your style doesn’t mean you have to hide or suppress it. Embrace that style, uniqueness, or even if its simple and chic… Embrace it and be yourself.

So because it’s my birthday of course I am going to be a little extra or just have a little more bling. But there are only two main components with this look. My dress and boots. Now before today I hoped that it wouldn’t be so cold, where I’d freeze. But you know Cleveland… it’s cold and there’s practically a blizzard outside. Now this royal blue sequins dress is cold and I’m not talking about the weather. It’s long sleeve, yay and also has slight turtle neck feel, so there’s no cleavage or any skin showing. I actually bought this dress from a boutique in Cleveland called So Fierce.

This dress is great for a new years eve look. Like I stated before there are only two components. With this dress, you don’t need a lot of accessories, it will take away from the dress. With this statement dress and it being my birthday and all I topped this look off with my royal blue crushed velvet over the knee boots. These are my personal favs from my closet right now. The heel isn’t too high, but my main concern is how comfortable they are. To my surprise, they’re pretty comfortable. The only issue with me is I have to squeeze the string a little tighter to fit that part of my leg above the knee. But I absolutely love them. I got these from Forever21, and on sale! A major plus.

birthday 3birthdayThis look is great for dinners, a NYE event, and of course birthday parties. I’m going to continue being myself and staying true to that. I hope you will all do the same. Happy New Years!
