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.

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

TGIF!!!  It’s that time again for Style me Friday with The Fashionista Next Door and it is all about “Daytime Sparkle”.  I love this look because I have tons and tons of sequin in my closet.  I don’t have any sequin pants ( I must get a pair still) so I wore this dress that I purchased from Arden B a loooooong time ago.  I’m wearing it as a skirt today.  I love versatile pieces that I can remix!

Proportions

 

 

Better late than never!  I missed linking up with Eboni on Friday, last week, for Style Me Friday.  Baby M is teething so I am behind on everything, I feel like, and I’m just getting things in when they fit in. hahhaha  Ohhhhh, I almost forgot.  I went and got my hair straightened this weekend.  It has grown sooo much and to think, I’ve only gone 3 months with no heat!!!  I think it grew at least, an inch a month.  Can’t wait to see just how much longer it will grow!!!

style-me-friday-inspiration

The inspiration look was all about Playing with Proportions. I had to go in the Hubs closet to pull this look off.  I borrowed his shirt as well as his sweater.  I don’t have anything over sized in my closet, at all!!!  I think the finishing touch of this whole outfit are the over the knee boots.  Haute with a capital H!!!

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

I am so ready for Spring/Summer to get here!!!  I was super excited when I saw Eboni picked Florals and Leather as the Style Me Friday inspiration for this week.  It is FREEZING outside today!  But I went ahead and bared the cold weather just to get these shots in. LOL  I had on a scarf, but decided to take it off for my pictures.  Join in on the Style Me Friday fun here.

Have a great weekend and stay WARM!!!!

TGIF!  It’s that time again for Style Me Friday with my girl Eboni over at Fashionista Next Door.  This week, my girl Trina, of The Baby Shopaholic is hosting while Eboni is busy with work.  I soooo look forward to see what look she picks for the week. It challenges me to pull items out my closet.  Since being a SAHM, I rarely get dressed anymore.  HaHa  I’ve been living in a pair of sweats and T-shirts or Sweatshirts, UGG boots or sneakers.  When I’m out shopping, I’ve started eyeing sneakers!!!!  What the What??!?!?! Yep!  Hahaha  It’s so funny because I used to be a huge sneaker head, always in my J’s (Jordan’s) and Air Force Ones and Nike Air Max.  As I matured, I kinda grew out of it and just became a high-heel junkie (don’t get it twisted, I still love a fierce stiletto).  But now, I am all about comfort when I am out with Baby M.  I do get a chance (more…)

Happy Friday!!!!  The weather has been in the mid 60’s for some reason.  I’m not complaining at all.  Baby M and I were able to get out to the park for a walk.  He is such a happy baby and loves being outdoors!   Everyone always asks me about Baby M’s stroller.  Even when we are out, people are always stopping me to inquire.  I actually have 2 strollers, this one is the “daddy” stroller for Hubs.  It is the Stokke Xplory.  I actually love it because it sits high up.  That in itself sold me because I loved the eye to eye level with Baby M.  I also love the fact that it is light weight, easy to break down and an extremely smooth ride.  I also like the fact that you can purchase a kick board that  a toddler can ride on, for the mommy’s that have another small child.  I purchased this stroller from Buy Buy Baby, but I am sure you can probably purchase it just about any baby store or online.  The Cons of this stroller would be that it didn’t come with a cup holder.  I still have to get around to purchasing one.  I always forget to get it.  I also use the Mommy Hook which is a must have for ALL Mommy’s.  It only costs about $8 and this hook holds everything!!!  I love it!

Red Hot Leather + Color Block

 

 

TGIF!!!  Any big plans for the weekend?  I have a full day scheduled tomorrow.  So excited and CAN NOT WAIT!!  Last night, Busola invited me out to the new Container Store in Buckhead for Bows & Bloggers.  I learned so much about gift wrapping, the gift wrapping secrets, making bows, all of that.  I also met some awesome ladies too.  I always love meeting new faces!!  Container Store has a HUGE selection of gift wrap, “Gift Wrap Wonderland” is what they call it.  It is indeed a WONDERLAND!!!  If you have not been to the new location yet… YOU MUST GO!!!  I’ll give your more details later…

 

I knew I was going to link up with Eboni, for her Style Me Friday, so I wore my red hot leather skirt.  How HOT is this?!??  I purchased this vintage leather skirt from Keren of Two Stylish Kays verrry early last year and have never worn it, until now.  Can you believe that when I purchased it, it was TOO BIG!!  I bought it  before I even knew I was gonna be preggo with Baby M.  Well now, as you can see, it fits me like a GLOVE!!!  hahhahhahaa  I def got some baby weight still to lose, but honestly, I am loving the extra pounds!!!   I probably just need to tone up… Maybe I will start doing YOGA or something.  Note that I said maybe!!  hahaha

Style Me Friday + Fashionista Next Door

 

 

Hi dolls.  Today I am linking up with my girl, Eboni.  She does a Style Me Friday post every single Friday and kills it every time.  She just started a linky link so YOU can recreate the look yourself and show her what you did!  Sounds pretty FUN, huh?  Head on over HERE so you can get in too!!! 

Today’s Style me Friday look was all about Leather Pants and Utility Vests. 

  Penny Pencher Fashion

And here is my shot of pulling this look together & making it my own.  I didn’t pull out my leather pants just yet because… well, they just don’t quite fit me since having Baby M.  But I am determined to get in those babies BEFORE Spring!  hahhhaha  Cross ya’ll fingers for your girl!  LOL   I decided to wear my faux leather panel pants that I also wore here.  You all might get tired of me in these pants because lately they have been my go to pants.  They are super duper comfy and chic and sexy.  I love the fit of them!!! 

pants – H&M / top – GAP maternity / utility vest DIY – ebay / bag – Nine West  / watch – Michael Kors / sunnies – A.B.S / shoes – KLS / necklace – c/o Orchids and Spice
 

I really loved this look because it also gave me the push to make my utility vest.  Yep, you heard me, DIYer! hahaha  I bought this initially as a jacket on ebay a while ago.  I wore it here as a jacket.  I thought, now would be the perfect time for me to turn it into a vest.  All I did was cut the sleeve and VOILA, its now a vest!!!

My hair is LITERALLY a wash n go.  I washed it the morning I wore this and just threw in some Mixed Chicks Leave-in-Conditioner and Miss Jessies Pillow Soft Curls.  It was that easy!!!!

 

 

 What do you think, Did I recreate this look?
