A Simple Spring Weekend Outfit That Still Looks Put Together

Brunch Outfits, Leopard Blazer, DIY Distressed Shorts, Polka dots Mules, Melodiestewart.com

Don’t cha just love short weeks, they get you right back to the weekend a lot sooner, right?

When it comes to weekend wear, most of us (yes me too) tend to lean towards comfort and ease, especially if you’ve been in work attire all week. There have been time when my weekend getup at some point consisted of a not so impressive top and bottom combo. But what if you can combine comfort and ease with style? I’m here to tell you ma’am (or sir), it’s absolutely possible.

Enter this super easy and simple causal weekend look. It only took 5 pieces to create this look, but what makes it stylish is the character that each piece offers.

For starters we have the white t-shirt. I cannot stress this enough; you NEED a white tee in your wardrobe. Nothing beats the style and versatility of the white t-shirt. I opted for my favorite pair of distressed black denim shorts, but any fun pair of shorts will do.

Now you already know how much I love a good ol blazer, so this lightweight leopard print blazer was just what this look needed to give this causal look a bit of edge. Blazers are awesome in that they create a level of fashion-forwardness that you, your momma and your cousin could surely pull off. As for accessories, I chose these orange polka dotted mules and black patent mini crossbody.

You don’t have to have a lot of money or clothes to look great nor do you have to dress to the gawds in order to look put together. Take some time to really look at what’s in your closet and challenge yourself to pair pieces together that you might not have ever thought of before. You’d be surprised what you come up with.

Until next time…

What I'm Wearing To The World Natural Hair Show + I'm Teaching A Thrift Style Workshop

World Natural Hair Show, Top Atlanta blogger

Happy Fabulous Friday people!  I am so ready for this weekend.  Can you guess why?  I gave a little hint in the title of this post.  Tomorrow is THE DAY that I get to facilitate a thrifting workshop at the 21st World Natural Hair Show presented by Taliah Waajid

My style session is tomorrow from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm in Classroom: Italian 1-2 (tickets).  I think because I'm so hype about it that I'm not even nervous (at least not yet).  I actually feel really good about the workshop tomorrow.  I still can't believe it.  This is the biggest platform I've been on so far.  And I'm so grateful that God allowed somebody to think about me for this opportunity.  All smiles as I write this post!!!!!! 

You already know that my look has to be bang'n right?  And of course it has to be thrifted, duh!  I've been thinking about what to wear every since I got the call.  And after going back and forth with myself, I decided to repeat a look that I absolutely loved the first time I wore it.  The first time I wore this look was at Atlanta designer Natt Taylor's pop up shop a few weeks ago. 

And to think a couple of years ago I would never be caught wearing the same thing twice. Girl what?!?!  Especially if I got photographed in a look.  No ma'am, Pam!  But baby, I'll be 40 in a few weeks and things like not repeating an outfit is cray cray!.  I'm at a place now where I don't even care anymore.  Which is why I'll be wearing this exact look tomorrow.  The only thing I'm changing is my undergarments and my hair will probably be different.  

My favorite part of this look is the bright yellow ruffle skirt I picked up from vintage shop Ecologie in Kennesaw, GA (It's a bit of a drive, but it's worth it).  My skirt is thrifted, however this ASOS satin pleated midi skirt with hanky hem is super dope and so cute and you should get it.  Guys, I've said it once and I'll say it again, Zara is the real MVP when it comes to shoes.  I would suggest not waiting to get a shoe you really like, their inventory goes quick.  These white brogues are no longer available. 

Well style lover's do me a fave... Send up a prayer that all goes well tomorrow and that something awesome comes from the experience.  Appreciate it and ttyl!
