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.

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.

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!!!! There is so much I want to share with you on this blog post. But I want to start off by saying THANK YOU!!!. I have so much gratitude for the love and support I receive on my blog. Today’s blog post features my upcoming theme using prints with every outfit I share with you.

This floral print on this one piece is everything!  I purchased this romper to make a statement, and of course I got it from Fashion Nova. Who would have thought? I’m pretty sure you know by now, this is a go to website for me. I can always find that look to make jaws drop.

They call this romper,”White Summer Romper”. The bold colors on this romper combine so well with each other to create a great summer look. This outfit shows how you can show skin strategically. If you haven’t checked out Munee’s Style Tips page, head over there when you’re done with this and find out how to bare certain body parts, and cover some of them up. Of course looking sexy involves what to bear and what to keep under wraps. And from looking at this outfit you would think I’m bearing it all. I have my arms covered up to the elbows. And although I’m showing some cleavage you can only view my legs from the front of the outfit. The shorts show my long legs off, but the long skirt in the back hides the view of my legs.

Summer Blossom

I paired this romper with some navy blue “Rachel” heeled sandals. I grabbed these sandals from Shoe Dazzle. (It was last year, but they do have other colors available.) A perfect match made in heaven. Because my legs are out you can really appreciate the detail of the sandal.

For a simple accessory, I added a gold necklace with navy blue feathers added. You show know me by now, simple and chic will get the job done. And you know one thing I added with this look, CONFIDENCE!!! This should be your most important accessory. Make sure you add this to every style and outfit you wear.

I am wearing this romper to a graduation party. This romper, is festive enough for a party, and dressy enough for the occasion. I wanted to show off my long slim legs, and I think I pulled it off with this look. Make sure you check out Munee’s Style Tips for all trendy style tips that will have you looking fabulous this summer!

3 Ways to Style a Blazer

May 20, 2017

 

Do you find yourself only wearing a blazer to work? Do you have any issues with styling your blazers? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then it’s a great thing that you stopped by to check out this post! Today’s blog post will provide different style tips for your blazer and also assist you with shopping for other pieces to style with your blazer. Yea, it is nice to wear that blazer to work or to a business meeting, but you don’t have to keep it professional with that blazer every time you wear it. You can dress it down for a casual look to wear grocery shopping or a mall run. Or you can dress it up to go out to a party or a concert or even date night with your boo thang!

The first look is for a “casual lady”. I paired this blazer with a pair of jeans and a tee. Yes a t-shirt!! You can dress a lot of things in your wardrobe by adding a simple t-shirt. This is a plain navy blue blazer. A nice pair of jeans are always good for a casual day. Even if the casual day involves nothing but grocery shopping and running to the cleaners to pick up some things.

Casual Look

With this casual style, you can still feel confident even if you’re just throwing on a tee. I added some slip on flip flops. They’re a settle nude color which gives you a feminine look where you don’t feel completely dressed down. Of course we have to add accessories with this look. Nothing too flashy with this casual style. I added a nice navy blue watch with pairing bracelets that matches the flip flops and t-shirt. The tote is a must! Where ever you are headed on this laid back day , you’re going to need a purse. I know on days like this I’m usuall running errands. So I’m going to have to carry a big enough purse, to tote my things around in. With that being said, this tote is great for a casual day. And last of course I’m going to add a pair of sunglasses. Because it’s Spring the sun is going to be out, and you’ll be prepared with some fashionable shades to wear. Every piece in this look allows you to feel good and stay comfortable. The nude color allows you to feel femine. And when you think you can’t be casual with a blazer… Stay confident and style yourself like this “casual lady”.

This next look is when you might have a hot date. Or maybe you’re just going out with your ladies to a party. Either situation you can add pieces with your blazer to style a night on the town look. Of course I paired this blazer with some metallic shorts. These shorts add “sassy” to this look. And with this nude croptop you’ll be sure to turn some heads. I styled some nude booties with this outfit to show off those legs! The booties are a great shoe to dress this style up.

A night on the town

The acccessories added to this look are key. I paired a big necklace, thick plated bangle, sapphire colored earrings and navy and gold watch. Here I paired another tote bag. In this style you will only be using this purse for stylsh purposes only. You won’t have a lot of items in your bag for the night. But the colors and style of this purse brings the outfit together. So you better work it. Show off those legs and feel modest with the blazer too. Just remember for this style the main focus is to dress the blazer up. And I think this style nails it.

This last style will have everyone at work thinking, “she is looking so chic today”. The great thing about having confidence, is everyone notices it! When you feel fashionable even going to work, it shows that you take the time on your apperance. The blazer is paired with matching blue pants and a bright yellow shirt. You should always add a pop of color when you’re going to work. They say yellow is a happy, positive, and energetic color. Three things you should want to have at work.

Business Chic.

 

It’s Spring so you better rock those spring colors like this canary yellow. And the navy blue and yellow is something most people wouldn’t even think to pair together. But this style works. I found these yellow mules that have a nice comformtable stlye when you’re at work. You dont always have to wear a shoe with a small heel. As you can see the accessories are quite simple. The yellow studded earrings matches the top and mules. And of course the one item that is a must, is the watch. A watch is the perfet accent peice for this style. The wallet is big enough to keep money, ID, and credit cards. A purse isn’t a must to carry to work. This wallet is simple and chic for this style. Now you see you can be chic when dressing for work as well.
And there you have it! Three looks to show how to style a blazer. And seriously this is how I shop. These styles help you to style one specific peice you have in your wardrobe, so you won’t wear that blazer only once. I usually take one piece (in this case the blazer) and utilize it for more than just one occasion. I not only wear it to work, but I can dress it up or dress it down. These styles add a feminity, sass, and happienss to your own life as a confident woman. I am sure these shopping guides will help you replicate your own styles and continue to be the women you are becoming. Until next time stay confident and style that blazer more ways than just once!

Simple Midnight Blue…

Simple Midnight Blue…

May 14, 2017

I feel like it’s been forever since my last post!!! I can’t wait to show you my new outfit!! It’s actually simple but cute.  It’s a subtle midnight blue, but not at all dull looking, with a single white stripe down the side. I found this jumpsuit on Fashion Nova. I like their clothes because they don’t feel cheap and they fit you great!! I got this in a small. This jumpsuit came in handy today!! The weather is pretty decent to bring out this open back jumpsuit. They call it the “Hot Tottie Jumpsuit”. So you know you think I’m hot today, lol. I mean this jumpsuit fits me great where I don’t feel like my boob will pop out or anything, which is good! Of course I decided not to wear a bra, because of the cut out in the back. There’s a strap that ties which makes me feel a little secure in the back. I paired this jumpsuit with these black sandals that has a low chunky heel. The black contrasts with the blue, which is perfect for my style. I actually got these heeled sandals from Just Fab. Great find in my opinion, if you haven’t tried their shoes go try them like right now! (Well finish reading first of course.)

I wanted this outfit to really show how confident I have become. See the key, is to find that confidence and remain confident not only with fashion but with everyday life and goals you set for yourself. Feeling confident with yourself takes you through so many stages in life and keeps you wanting more and more of it. You might think well I can’t wear that showing all that skin, or yea she’s small she can wear clothes like that. But if you don’t feel secure just yet to just wear this jumpsuit by itself, add a blazer, which is one of my favorite go tos. If you do decide to add another layer, a blazer would be perfect for a business style or it can even be a casual style depending on the style of blazer you wear with it. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to show off that gorgeous body you have!!

IMG_1258IMG_1308IMG_1207

There was a time when I didn’t want to show my body either, but the lesson I learned was being confident and maintaining that confidence. I want to show you how you can achieve confidence with fashion. I know personally how it feels when you don’t feel confident with what you’re wearing and not only that, but with yourself. I’m pretty sure there are some of you that have so many clothes, but you don’t wear them because you don’t feel confident enough to pull it off?! Been there done that! Let me tell you, you can become more and more confident with each style you choose to wear everyday. Best way to start, is with something simple. Try getting a jumpsuit that maybe sleeveless, or has one shoulder off, or even just a tiny opening in the back. It only takes one compliment, or a smile you may get from your co-worker asking where did you get that jumpsuit from. It makes you feel good about yourself, and hopefully keeps a smile on your face. Once you’ve experienced that confidence, it will help you preform productively and positively not only at work but with relationships with your significant other, and in school if you’re currently enrolled. Its going to make you want to style your outfit for the next day or just take an extra 20 min to put together a look that will have you feeling like you can do anything life throws at you. I’m telling you its a wonderful feeling. Three things to remember when you think of this midnight blue jumpsuit; remain confident and keep smiling and styling when you put that next chic or simple look together. Also ladies please let me know what you’re facing when it comes to getting dressed each day, I want to be able to assist you with your styling needs. I will be posting shopping guides to assist those of you who have issues with shopping for the right clothes. Until next time ladies…
