A Pep Talk with Yourself

I felt like dressing up a bit today so I went with this professional-chic look.

I paired a black pinstripe blazer with a black fit and flare dress, and black booties. Yes, it’s a lot of black but is still chic and simple.

I prefered keeping the blazer unbuttoned to show off the dress more. These ankle booties are definitely on trend for fall this year along with embroidered booties and thigh high boots.

Todays outfit made me think of the quote, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”

With a huge change coming at the end of this month, I’ve been thinking a lot about goals and what I want to achieve in life.

Wearing this outfit made me feel empowered, strong, and like I can achieve anything I set my mind too.

Every once in a while you have to have a pep talk with yourself to get you motivated and inspired again. I hope this read made you want to chase after your goals full force.

Hello Fall, Goodbye Summer!

Yesterday was the first day of fall for 2016 ! Fall is my second favorite season after spring. I get to wear over-sized sweaters, warm patterned leggings, and break out the cute boots I haven’t seen since last winter.

Instead of an outfit shot today, I put together a little fall mood board. This is just a few things that gets me excited and inspired for the fall.

Fall trees: the red and orange trees signify change is coming and change is a positive and neceesary thing. I am welcoming change this fall.

Lipstick: you have to pamper yourself every once in a while. I don’t wear makeup often but when I do, gorgeous lipstick is a must. And this color is perfect for fall.

Sweater and booties: helps you stay warm and walk through all of the storms and chilly weather fall brings. And look stylish while doing it!

Cookies and a warm drink: makes me think about being cozy and comfortable. Every once in a while you have to take a step back from your busy life and enjoy the little things.

I hope my moodboard is as motivational and inspirational to you as it is to me. Try creating one of your own and let me know how it goes! ❤

Tribal Print & Black

This past weekend was a much needed mid-semester break from school. I had a 5 day break where I was able to leave my college and go home to visit my family and boyfriend.

Over the break I went to church and had an awesome time! This post is about the outfit I wore there.

I still have my long Marley twists in my hair, but I decided to change it up a bit. I decided to pull it back into a half ponytail and half down style.

I love using my clothing for multiple purposes. For example, this tribal print shirt is actually a bodycon dress that I rolled up to look like a shirt.tribe

I paired my tribal print piece with a black asymmetrical skirt. I love this skirt!

It’s my first asymmetrical piece and I just love the cut and how it looks on me.

I paired this outfit with black booties, black and pearl earrings, and pearl bracelets. I also wore light brown lipstick!

This was a chic and comfy fall look perfect for day and night

What are some of your clothing items that can be used in different ways? Do you have any asymmetrical items?

I hope you lovelies have a great weekend! ❤ ❤

Casual Chic Look

Who doesn’t love looking stylish while still being comfortable? I know I do! So, in this post I will show you my casual chic look.

In my hair I am wearing a silver, studded headband and for my jewelry I am wearing two pearl bracelets and two earrings. I recently purchased this hooded sweatshirt with the words Tokyo on the front and sleeves.

I am totally addicted to this sweatshirt because it is warm, stylish, and also very comfortable. I paired my Tokyo sweatshirt with gray skinny jeans.

Skinny jeans can be dressed up or down and that’s what makes them awesome pieces. I then finished my outfit off with black booties!

They have a small heel on them and they come to my ankle. They are easy to walk in and make me look and feel super chic.

This outfit is comfortable, laid-back, and stylish…a perfect Casual Chic Look ❤
