Spring Peplum

 

 

Happy Monday!  The weekends seem to come and go by so fast.  It seems like it was just Friday on yesterday. hahhaaha  So I’ve took the Pretty Girls Rock (PGR) Dresses Spring/Summer Dress Challenge.  I’m committed to rock a dress, skirt, or feminine pant suit at least three days a week.  I challenge you to participate as well.  This won’t be hard for me because I love a cute dress.  I’d wear a dress every single day!!  I love my dresses y’all!  hahaha   Is it SPRING yet?  Y’all know how I hate the cold weather and live for warm/hot days.  I am so ready for Spring/Summer to get here.  I just want to get ready for pool days and days at the beach!  Baby M went to the beach in Aruba while he was still just my lil “jellybean” but I want him to be able to put his toes in the sand and feel the water between those toesies.  He loves the water and we all  know he gets that from his mommy!!!   hahaha

So that brings us to this fabulous coral peplum dress that I purchased from H&M last Summer.  I am just now getting around to wearing it.  I purchased it right after Baby M was born so I still have that baby belly in effect so I couldn’t quite rock it yet.  I also was a newbie at breastfeeding, so I was always wearing convenient tops or wrap dresses for easier access.  Now that I am a breastfeeding pro, I know how to unzip the back to take an arm out and still be in any piece of clothing.  hahahhaa Yes y’all, I’m a PRO now.  LOL! LOL!

And these SHOES!!  I have literally had these shoes FOR-EVER.  You might remember when I wore them for the very 1st time here.  It’s ashame that this it only my 2nd time wearing this GORGEOUS shoe, but that’s how it is sometimes.  Especially when you have a closet full of shoes!  SMH!!  Oh yeah, if you are a size 7.5-8.5, I am going to sell some of my shoes and clothes guys.  I’ll give you all the deets soon, but I have GOT to clean out my closet AGAIN to make room for some new items since nothing fits me anymore, plus I just need to purge my closet.  So I’ll keep you all posted on Shopping My Closet!!!  :)

Do you love wearing Dresses?

I’ve had these sweatpants for EVER!  I love them because of the pockets and baggy feel to them.  They were perfect for pulling this look together.  I ran to the store to get a few items and I kept getting looks and heads turned to look. hahhaaha One older lady, she looked like she was in her 70’s said, “Sweats with heels, that’s a first.  But girl you did that”.  LOL LOL  It was so funny!!  I jsut laughed and thanked her.

How FABULOUS is that clutch.  This was one of the things Hubs got me along with some Vince Camuto perfume back for V-Day.  I love my booboos!!  I love this clutch and don’t be surprised if you see a lot more of it.  I can even fit  my iPad inside.  So scoot right on over to see the other fashionista’s down the street for their take of this look.

Styling the Cape

 

 

Capes aren’t only for Super Heroes, they are for Fashionista’s too!!!  I purchased this cape last year, I think, and it was a bit too big for me.  Now, as you can see, it fits great!!  That is that “baby” weight that I packed out.  LOL  I don’t think I want to loose it, just tone more.  I styled it with a fitted sweater, skinny jeans, boots and a chunky scarf.  I just received a new cape in the mail, that I will be sharing with you soon.

Inspiration: Pearls and Twirls
 

Today’s inspiration is “Preppy with a Pop of Red”.  Rather than wearing a skirt, I opted to wear my coral/red shorts with pin striped tights. It was 40 degrees out when I took my shots this morning!!  Brrrrrr, it was COLD!!!!!  Since I do not have a leopard bag, I decided to wear my leopard booties for that touch of leopard.  This outfit is SUPER DUPER comfy which means a lot for me when I have Baby M with me.  I’m all about Comfy and Cute (the 2 C’s).  Sorry for the quick post, but I’m trying to get this post in before Baby M wakes up!!!  #LifeOfAMommy

Denim + Denim

 

 

Hi loves.  How was your weekend?  Was it just as amazing as mine?  I didn’t really do anything spectacular.  I attended an event and then spent the rest of the weekend with the family.  Never can have enough “family” time!  I love spending weekends with the hubs!  Today’s post is going to be a quickie.  I wore this outfit last week.  Baby M had a follow up Dr’s appt and after we went for lunch.  I pulled my hair back in a ponytail.  I’ve been so anti-ponytail since embracing my natural curls because I know its not healthy for my hair with the pulling, so you won’t be seeing me in any ponytail’s anytime soon. LOL  I was just having a majorly lazy day today!

 Denim on Denim has been a huge trend for quite some time now and honestly I don’t think its going anywhere.  So don’t be afraid to wear that chambray top with your favorite denim pants!!!!

Do you have “bad hair/ponytail” days more often than you’d like?

Thanksgiving Oxblood + Leopard + $50 Winner

 

 

Hi dolls!  The winner of the $50 VISA Gift Card is TINA MCDOWELL!!!!!!  Congrats girlie & you’ve got mail! 

So,  how was your weekend dolls?  The family and I headed up to Macon to stay the weekend with my mother-in-law.  It was quite relaxing!  The only thing, I couldn’t do any blogging because they don’t have wi-fi.  They have internet, but I would have had to plug in my laptop and that’s no fun, so it just made me spend time with the family and keep the laptop and iPad closed!!  So I can honestly say, it was a great weekend.  My daughter woke up this morning with the FLU so I have been putting in overtime.  Between taking care of  Baby M, running back and forth to the kitchen for T and making sure the hubs is good, I am one worn out mommy/wifey!  LOL  I guess that is why we are SUPERWOMEN!!!  hahahaha

Anyway, I am finally getting around to posting my outfit from Thanksgiving.  I’m a whole couple weeks late, but better late than never, RIGHT?  lol  You may remember here when I said I had 3 pair of leopard pants (who needs that many, right?)  But they all have a different fit and look for me.  I bought these Merona leopard pants from Tar-jay.  Yep, my spot!!  I’ve been finding A LOT of goodies at Tar-jay lately, but I found these pants a while ago.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have saw that I initially spotted these goodies in Lucky Magazine in a Target Style AD.  I hunted these babies down and found them. 

P.S. I’m linking up to Monday Mingle

Have you hunted a piece of clothing down?  What was it?

monochromatic color love

Hi loves.  How was your weekend?  The hubs and I took Baby M to the pumpkin patch and just chilled and rested.  It has gotten COLD here in Atlanta.  I had to go on and turn the heat on.  I want this Fall/Winter to hurry up and leave just as fast as it came. hahaha  Ya’ll know I HATE the cold!!!

Monochromatic….what the heck is that, you ask?  Well, the dictionary definition is:  mon·o·chro·mat·ic (m n -kr -m t k). adj. 1. Having or appearing to have only one color And wikipedia’s definition is: all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hueIn a nut shell, you basically wear the same colors but in different shades.  So don’t put those colors away just yet, have fun!!!  Don’t be afraid to wear color this Fall/Winter.

leather panel pants + men’s fashion

 

Happy Wednesday loves.  I hope your week has been going good so far.  So sorry for the quick post, but I’m super busy with baby M tonight.  I am loving these faux leather paneled pants from H&M and guess how much they were…. $12.95!!  They also came in oxblood but they didn’t have my size in that color, so I just bought the black pair.  I can’t wait to break out my leather pants and skirts!! LOL  Let’s talk about these peep toe booties.  Can you believe I’ve had them for YEARS and never even worn them.  I think I bought  them from TJ Maxx, its been so long, I can’t remember!  This was my first time wearing them… the story of my closet.  I have tons of items still brand new with tags, never been worn.  A shame, I know!!!

I met up with Trina last week to go to a Bloomingdale’s Men’s Fashion Show hosted by Jezebel Magazine.  The menswear was HOT HOT HOT!!!!!  Two looks absolutely caught my eye because I knew the Hubs would be caught wearing them.  I could so see him in these outfits and he loves him some Cole Haan shoes!!

Favorite Look #1

Hugo Boss clothing / Cole Haan shoes

Favorite Look #2

Can’t remember clothing but Cole Haan are the boots!

Aren’t those boots DOPE????  How do you feel about the leather trend?

Jumpsuit…jump jump

WOW!  What a beautiful day today was.  It hit 88 degrees here in Atlanta.  I hate to keep telling you how nice it is here  because I know there are places that are still getting ice, snow or cold weather.  Sorry!  I just LOVE the sun so much it just makes me so happy and it feels so good.  No, seriously, I REALLY love the sun.  LOL  Call me a weirdo, but if you know me, then you know I love the sun, sorta like a fat kid loves cake! AND I am dead serious.  You’ll learn to find out there are some weird things about me.  3 words… the sun, fresh tar, and gasoline.  I’ve already told you about the sun, one day I will share with you my obsession with fresh tar and gasoline. LOL  That’s another topic for another day! Ha Ha

This is one of the jumpsuits that I bought at H&M over the weekend and I absolutely love it on.  I opted to wear it with pumps today.  I also had on a black blazer but I didn’t wear it in any of my shots because it was just too darn HOT outside.  I even slipped off my pumps and walked around barefoot in the grass.  I so enjoyed today.  It’s the small things in life that satisfy me and walking barefoot with the grass between my toes and the sun beating on my skin, was just heaven to me!!!!

P.S.  I totally forgot!  You all know I am participating in the Shoeper Shoe Challenge, well I’ve added a new pair of shoes to my collection so my shoe count now goes to 91.  Whew!!  I still got a lot of shoe wearing to do.  These don’t count in these shots because they’ve already been saved!!

spring has sprung

Today was another FAB day!  We hit the 8o’s again, so I think it is safe to say that SPRING HAS SPRUNG!  If that is even a phrase.  LOL  I got this dress a couple years ago from Charlotte Russe.  I love it because its so light and flowey.  Not to mention its Springy too.  It gets chilly in the office, so I always wear a jacket or have one with me at all times.  I always get cold.  I also finally did another FAB Finds video.  Aren’t you all so proud of me?  When I first launched the blog, in November, I was all gung ho on how I was going to do FAB Finds every week.  Well that got real old…as shopping can get a bit expensive and I didn’t always go every week. LOL  But I’m going to promise to do more videos.  I’d actually say that I enjoy doing videos a little better than doing photo shoots.  What do you think…video’s or photo’s???

Happy Saturday!!  If your in Atlanta, I hope you are going to get out and enjoy this beautiful day!  This is an old outfit post, I wore this on Thursday (hence, another bad hair day..for ME anyway).  We got about a 1/2 inch of snow Wednesday night and it was rainy so I decided to wear by Hunter wellies.  By noon, everything cleared up and it actually turned out to be a lovely day with no rain and all the snow melted.  I did get one little shot of snow that hadn’t melted because it was still in the shade. LOL

I have plenty of pair of rain boots and these fit no different than the ones that I bought from Target.  What I do like about them, however, are how tal they go up my leg.  I also like that you can buy the Welly Socks also.  They keep your feet really warm and comfy and they are perfect to wear in rain, snow, wet weather.  That slushy weather that you may get, these are PERFECT for that.  They are also good to wear when going fishing and in muddy areas.  They are so easy to clean.  Just hose off and VOILA, they are clean.  If you are interested in purchasing them, you can here
