OOTD: Poofy skirts, high heels, and turbans

Happy Sunday! How are you guys?!?! I am so thankful to kind of be getting back to my normal self because it has been a crazy  and tough couple of weeks! I am so thankful for anyone that comes across this page as well, the support and love is GREATLY APPRECIATED. But onto the outfit of the day! I don’t know about anyone else but there is something about the weekend that just puts me into a very chill mode, so much so that I don’t really touch my hair just throw it into a satin scarf and figure it out on wash day. Thus the fact that I LIVE in my turbans on the weekend. Not only do they keep my hair protected but it helps me still look fashionable and put together no matter where I go.

Turban: I honestly have had this scarf that I often use as a turban for so long I don’t even remember where I got it from. But it’s one of my favorite pieces. I think I may have gotten it from Target years ago but I truly cannot remember.

Blouse: Touchdolls.com  This blouse is so fun because you can dress it up or down and it’s so lightweight, fun, and versatile.

Skirt: Choies.com from a bulk order. By far one of my favorite sites to shop from. They truly have some of the best pieces for prices that don’t break the bank for my budget conscious fashionistas and it’s all really great quality and most things can be hand washed. This skirt is so fun, feminine, sophisticated, and chic all at the same time.

Heels: Michael Kors.  I bought these heels about 3 years ago on a clearance sale at Dillard’s in Tampa. They are truly fashionable, fun, feminine and just a great piece that you can dress up or down if you love a nice structured stiletto.

Accessories: My accessories are a mix of Alex and Ani, Bourbon and Boweties,  Kate Spade bracelets and a bracelet that I inherited from sweet granny.

What are some of your favorite pieces that you love to bring together for a relaxed but chic look for those days you need to dress up  but still want a relaxed chic that’s put together? What helps you feel comfortable but pretty? I would love to hear from you!

OOTD: Mixing bold colors and prints in preparation for summer

Hi ya’ll!  It kinda feels like its been super long since I came on here and just shared some things and I’ve missed blogging and you guys so I am going to share my outfit of the day from a couple weeks ago.

With summer on the horizon and temperatures rising I felt that it was only right to start some experimenting with bold colors and prints and it just feels right and summery and happy and fun!

I love a good skirt, I am such a girly girl, and I love colors plus mixing and matching to see what works so I decided I would give this a try.

I kinda felt like a pretty human popsicle lol.

Sunhat: Bought it from a Dillard’s in Huntsville Alabama at least 6 yrs ago. I truly just hang onto stuff ya’ll. I feel like at some point I can make it work and I just love the versatility and sophistication of it.

Top: Touch Dolls Boutique. I ABSOLUTELY love their stuff. It’s so chic and unique.

Skirt: Agaci (I think I’ve had it for a bit) and cannot quite remember but it’s so feminine and fun and festive.

Shoes: Vince Camuto.  I bought them as a birthday gift to myself from Bloomingdales last year. Probably my most favorite pair of shoes.

Jewelry: Bracelets are Alex and Ani and Bowties and Bourbon as well as some pieces I picked up from Agaci.

What are some pieces that you are looking forward to wearing this summer? What are some of your summer staples? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!

OOTD: All dolled up for church or a Derby

Happy Sunday! Today was a good day and was super refreshing for my soul and spirit. I thoroughly enjoyed church today! Even before I got there I was just in a good place. I kind of put this outfit together this morning in a crunch but I think it has a fun, sophisticated flair to it and it made me feel like I was ready for the Kentucky Derby.

There’s nothing quite like dressing up for any occasion that just makes any woman feel absolutely amazing!

Anyway to the nitty gritty!

Floppy Black Hat with bow in back: Preston and York (I got it from a Dillard’s in Alabama at least 5 or 6 years ago but I have paired it with so many things and I just love any type of piece that allows me to do such)

Blue striped assymetrical dress: Vince Camuto (Dillard’s in Sanford about 4-5 years ago. I love this dress because I find that it’s perfect for any occasion. I can pair this with a blazer or cardigan for work or church and when I want more of a sassy look I can lose the blazer or cardigan and pair with some cute sandals or heels and it’s a perfect day-to-night piece)

Gray ruched pumps: Jessica Simpson (I absolutely love these pumps, these are truly transitional event pumps in that I can wear pretty much anywhere)

Blue blazer with pin striped sleeves: New York and Co (I honestly have had this blazer for a good little while and I just love how comfy and cute it is and how it dresses up the simplest things like a pair of jeans and a top or a dress and it’s such a soft feel)

What are some of your favorite things to wear to your place of worship? What makes you feel good on a Sunday? Feel free to comment, I would love to hear from you!

 

 

 

OOTD: Flowy skirts and structured tops

You know how you have a crazy week but you still have joy? It’s been one of those weeks for me but I can honestly say beyond just internal joy  and peace it’s the little things that have really made me sing this week. Those things include flowy skirts and structured tops. Both of these OOTDs are from earlier this week but I love how mixing colors and prints just puts you in a good place (plus the right cup of coffee and productivity) Eeek! I over love a good mix of patterns or prints with bold colors or fun shoes. Oh and ya’ll please excuse my mirror, it needs a cleaning but it’s been THAT kind of week. LOL.

Details

Blue stripe button down: Touch Dolls boutique { Touchdolls.com}  The fit is great and runs a little roomy and I ordered some other items from there that I absolutely am in LOVE with.

Red High Waist Skater Skirt: Choies.com (I love this skirt because it’s so versatile and I can wear this to work,  church, and pretty much anywhere else and can be dressed up or down and has the right amount of sophistication but comfort) I commonly look for pieces that go well with multiple things or can give me different looks so I am not having to update my wardrobe all the time. Did I mention it has pockets? Yay!

Gray ruched pumps: Jessica Simpson (DSW I think #recoveringshopaholicprobs) The detailing in these shoes is EVERYTHING! I love that they have a great height (just about 3 1/2 inches I believe) to give me that extra boost of confidence for anything I face during my day and they are just subtle enough to be worn in the office but dressed up for after work festivities.

Red fitted turtleneck body con top: Meow and Barks Boutique  This top just gives any outfit or pairing the perfect pop of color and splash of fun that any fashionista is always searching for.

White contrast polka dot print maxi skirt: Choies.com I probably stalked (YES STALKED) this skirt for a good little while before I actually caved in and bought it. What I really love about this skirt, is that as the wearer it gives you such a regal feel especially when you dress it up with your favorite boots or pumps. And it truly is perfect for any occasion. Unless that occasion involves running or vigorous running. LOL.

You can probably barely see the ends of my boots peeking out (we caught a few days of cold weather so I got super excited and decided to bust out my boots) so I will save my review and details of them until a later date where you can get a better look.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors, prints, etc. and let your fashionista flag fly loud and proud! Create a style all your own and strut your stuff with confidence!
