On days when I kinda want to dress up but then not really, I tend to lean towards the athleisure look. It functional, yet fashionable. Gone are the days where sneakers are meant for the gym only. I decided to dress up my sneakers with this black lace skirt from Plato's Closet, but you can get one from here or here. Denim/chambray tops should be a staple in your closet. Actually you should really have more than one, hint-hint. Besides the thrift store, you can pick one or two up from Old Navy or Forever21. I added this neon yellow handbag (thrifted) just for the heck of it, lol. But really accessories just make things better! Have you given this look a try? What's your opinion on this trend?
Welp, it's the second day of the week of the second month of the year. I must say things are looking up! Why you may ask? Weellll, when I looked back over my life these last few years I noticed one thing
Growth!!!!!! My hair for sure has grown. Btw, I LOVE my natural hair. I very excited to see it at its full potential. Secondly, my blog. When I first started out blogging, I had no idea what so ever what I was doing, but to look at where I started until now.... I'm very proud of myself. I can't wait to see what the rest of this year holds for
Now just because you still work a 9-5 or similar doesn't mean you can't be stylish or "trendy". Maybe I'm fortunate that my job allows me a little wiggle room to #createmyownlook (wink). Look at how I took a sweater and pair of slacks, which both are appropriate for work and executed a trendy mixed print look. And just for the heck of it, I added a splash of color. Now you try it and tag me either on
with your new found workwear look. Good Luck!!
There's a certain classicness (is that a word?) to black and white. Subconsciously, I tend to lean more towards the black/white combo. I like the versatility that this color combo has. One of my favorite style enthusiast's, who I deem the queen of black and white, is Janelle Monae. She can wear the heck out of an black and white outfit.
Following me you see I'm a huge fan of prints. Outside of polka dot's, window pane print has become my fave. As an avid thrifter, my primary goal was to find them for less than $5.00. Well, that didn't happen. While out and about with my boo, I walked into the store and there they were; front and center. I felt like a kid on Christmas. They were not the $5 that I was hoping for, BUT I got want I wanted.
The weather in Georgia is fickle. It seems like we experience all four seasons in a week. This day was kinda chilly so I grabbed one of my favorite scarfs.
My cousin introduced me to thrifting years ago. I wasn't entirely turned off about it, I still didn't want anyone to know that I shopped at thrift stores. Although I didn't grow up lacking, I wasn't the girl that got to wear all the latest brand name. Once I graduated from high school and started working I moved away from thrift shopping. I had taken the blue pill (reference from the movie Matrix). I got caught up. But life has it's way of bringing one back to reality. Reality was... I could still "look fly on a dime".
