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.
Happy Hump Day!
Happy 2nd day of February everyone! Can you believe that one month of 2017 has already gone by? It’s amazing!
Are you all sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions so far or achieving all the goals you set for yourself? Hopefully you are and if you need a little push, I believe in you! 🙂
I came into 2017 focused on my future, planning, career, relationships, and of course my goals.
Recently, I decided to set small, progressive goals for every week in February and possibly even after this month. I am doing this because goal setting is important, keeps you balanced and on track, and it definitely feels great when you achieve them!
This weeks goal was to focus on self-love and take extra care of my body. As you mightve seen in my previous blog post here, I made a smoothie which was delicious, healthy, and great for my body.
I also did a cleansing facial wash which was relaxing, refreshing, and left my skin feeling super soft and smooth. Sometimes you have to take time to focus on your body and just love yourself a little extra!
Would you be willing to give the weekly goal setting challenge a try? Leave a comment below and let me know!
Enjoy your weekend lovelies ❤
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! ❤
Good morning beautiful people ❤
It finally seems like the warm weather is here to stay in Baltimore! I recently got twists in my hair as a protective style to help my hair grow.
On the first of August or the end of July I will take them out and hopefully my fro will have grown a lot.
Since the weather is so pretty, I decided to wear one of y favorite clothing items, my lightweight blue and white patterned romper.
The romper is not only stylish and comfortable, it is also really cool so I do not overheat while wearing it even if the sun is shining down on me. I paired my romper with black sandals and my usual pearl bracelets.
In one photo I am in front of a big bush with beautiful pink flowers and in the other picture posted I am in my friend’s room, trying to do a model-esque shot 🙂
I hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are. Remember to keep your head held high and stay positive! ❤
