My #OOTD To My First Friendsgiving

Atlanta Style blogger, Top Style blogger, Black style blogger

Thanksgiving may be over, however I'm still giving thanks.  Since setting out on this blogging journey I've met a number of people who have taught me quite a bit about the power of community.  You need a community of people who will uplift you and help you to become the best you possible.

When I started blogging I had no idea it would turn into something that I surprisingly enjoy doing.  Neither could I have imagined that blogging would force me to befriend complete strangers.  It's kinda ironic because while I'm not shy, I normally don't engage or initiate conversations with people I don't know.  

So when Chanel of Chanel Moving Forward invited me to attend her Friendsgiving with a few other Atlanta's bloggers earlier this month I was excited, then anxious and then I went into full panic mode!!!  My panic mode was triggered when I realized I was going to have to bring a dish.  Man, let me tell you, I will do almost anything not to have to cook.  Cooking is my least favorite thing to do (in the world).  Long story short, I ended up bringing greek chicken salad from Publix which, btw, was delicious.  Getting to mix, mingle and eat with these awesome ladies was wonderful.  

Okay now about my outfit of choice.  Anytime I go somewhere, the goal is to make a lasting impression and we all know that the first impression is lasting.  That's why my get-up needed to be on point.  And on point it was (yes, I just tooted my own horn).  I built my look around this mauve colored faux fur vest which I thrifted, but this one is pretty darn close.  To make the look a little interesting, I wore this H&M Embroidered Sleeve Shirt and oxblood cropped pants that I've had for a while, but these cigarette pants from Asos would absolutely work.  Now if you'll bring your attention to my foot work, you see peeking through are a really dope-a-licious pair of socks paired with one of my favorite pair of platform oxfords (similar here) from ShoeDazzle.  My choice of accessories (hat, glasses and mini handbag) brought the entire look together.  Sidenote, don't under estimate the power of accessories.  

Alright kläzit lovers I hope this look brings you lots of inspiration and let's make today grrrrreat!!!

The #1 Secret To "Owning It", Even When You Don't Know How!

Let's get into my #ootd.  But first (heads bowed/eyes closed) let's give honor to God from whom I received my kinky tresses from.  And although my hair almost always never comes out the way I envisioned it to be, I love my natural hair journey.  Now we can talk about this colored monochrome

look.  Btw, did you check out last weeks monochrome look -

here

?  The best part about this look is that it's

#thrifted

?  Even better is that it's two separate pieces that I thrifted on separate occasions aannddd the top (Ann Taylor

LOFT

) still had the tags attached.  What I like most about this look is that it can easily transition from office to a meeting or a weeknight dinner date with the hubs.  I owned this look, if I do say so myself.

Speaking of owning it, I almost gave up -

AGAIN

! But each time I try, I can't.  And when I thought about why I can't just throw in the towel; it hit me.  In years past whenever things weren't going as planned I would write in my journal and then read out loud what I wanted out of life.  I spoke so much life into my future that it makes quitting really difficult.  The #1 secrete to owning it, even when you don't know how?  Is opening up your mouth and declaring into your atmosphere what you will.  Words have Power!  Don't speak out of your emotions, emotions can change.  Speak from a place of strength, courage and boldness.  Go ahead, you got this!

The next time you're having a rough day, place your hand over your heart ~ Feel the beat ~ That's called purpose ~ You're alive for a reason ~ Don't Give UP!!! (
