I wore this to a casual dinner with my family. I absolutely adore this jumpsuit. I got it from Forever 21 about a year ago, and have worn it a few times since then. The best thing is that it was under $40.00. This time I decided to pair it with my Fenty Puma wedges and this adorable Comic Mini Bucket by Love Cortnie. If you've been following me for a while, you know that I love this print and have the matching clutch, seen here, here, and here. Love Cortnie bags are expertly crafted with high quality materials with the highest attention to detail.
This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the Ebony Magazine "Women Up" Brunch in Philadelphia to honor women of color who are making power moves within various industries. When I was invited, of course, I immediately wondered what I should wear. Since summer is officially over, and the weather has gotten a little chillier, I debated whether I should lean more towards a summer look, or if I should just usher in the fall. I checked the weather and saw that it would get into the 70's at some point during the day, so I decided to try to prolong the summer just a bit longer and wore this gorgeous Eliza J maxi dress. I threw on a (faux) leather jacket and patent leather boots to make it a little more fall-like.
Track pants are really hot right now. And I especially love these. They have functioning buttons on the sides so you can add volume and drama to the look and show off your shoes. The entire point of this pose was to highlight the slits on the sides of the pants.
This is my outfit of the day. I got this adorable romper from my "go-to" store, Express, earlier in the summer. I had a wardrobe malfunction at work, ran into Express to get a quick replacement shirt, and saw this adorable romper hanging on the rack. This is a great color, but I was sorry they ran out of black. :-(
Tout en Noir...In English, it means "All Black Everything." Just about anything sounds better in French, right? When you blog about your personal style, I think there's an expectation that you continuously post pictures with outfits that you haven't been previously seen in. That can be quite costly and exhausting, and doesn't depict the reality of most women.
I do not have an infinite budget, and although I do love to shop, I need to think about keeping money in my wallet while also trying to flex my creative muscles by shopping my closet. I'm going to be challenging myself to revisit my wardrobe, and mix and match my existing pieces to see what type of fresh spin I can put on things.
This past Saturday, I spent time with
my family in New York. My younger cousin is going away to college, and we all
got a chance to send her off with love, words of wisdom, and some things to
make her transition to college a little easier. I wanted to be comfy, but still
cute, so I decided to wear my “Everly Denim Look Harem Jumpsuit” from boohoo. I’ve
purchased a few things from boohoo in the past, and the quality is decent. Their
clothes are very affordable and boohoo was having a 60% off sale some weeks back,
so the jumpsuit wound up costing $16.00. So even if I get to wear this jumpsuit
only once, which won’t happen because I’ll be keeping this piece in rotation as
long as it lasts, it will be well worth it. I’ve gone out to happy hours and
have ordered drinks more expensive than this jumpsuit, so this purchase was a win for me.
