Adding some color to my style: Teal + Grey and daily Meditation/Affirmation






                 pring is here at last and it's time to roll out the colors. And speaking of which; I'm going to roll out the colors this year! I don't care what is going on around me, I'm going to keep the positive vibes going both in my attitude and in my wardrobe 😀 So, in this post, I'm wearing a casual look where I paired a grey cowl neck ribbed sweater with charcoal grey denim. I finished off the look with a teal color coat, black pair of ankle boots and my old Ann Taylor bucket bag. I wore this outfit and similar variations of it a lot this winter; a sweater, denim and boots to attend my son's basket's ball games. The coat is an old purchase from Macys. I love the color and puffy sleeve detail which is so in trend right now. The addition of color to an outfit definitely uplifts the mood especially now that the weather is starting to warm up and we have the cloudy days behind us. Beautiful sunny weather calls for beautiful bright colors.

Long Brown Coat + Brown Accessories and How to stay happy while social distancing







             Ħappy Monday Friends. It's another week, another Monday and where do I even begin? The world is at a different place and history is happening right in front of our eyes; very bad history. The Coronavirus Pandemic is like a Hollywood horror movie happening right before our eyes. There would have been so much excitement about spring right now and everyone trying to enjoy the outdoors because we all have been hibernating in the winter time but we cannot do that; we cannot run around outdoors enjoying the warmer weather. Everyone has to do some social distancing at this time to stop the spread of  this virus and flatten the curve and with this, I say happy Monday again.

All black Outfit + Combat boots and reminding us of God's special Love








              n all black outfit is the easiest to put together; just pull textures in different fabrics like leather, lace or knits like I did here in a previous post or put on an all black outfit and accessorize with fun accessories like I did here in this post. You won't believe it guys, I wore this outfit to Church on a Sunday! 😀 I was surprised myself too!! If you know me, I like to dress up real girlie for Church with stiletto pumps and all that on Sundays but I don't mind a casual look for the Wednesday, mid-week services. So, on this particular Sunday, I wanted to wear a different look; the snow was starting to melt and everywhere outdoors was all wet and slushy so I decided to wear my new pair of combat boots blogged about here.

Gingham Coat + all black Outfit






                     have had this long gingham coat for a number of years now and it is one of my favorites. The coat is very trendy, chic and comfortable to wear. It is also a consignment store purchase that I scored for less than $50. A similar coat at high end stores is worth over $500 dollars. It is 100 % wool and the quality is impeccable! I think I ought to start selling fashion on Poshmark by now because I definitely know how to find treasures at the pre-loved stores. For this look, I paired the coat with another all black look just like my previous post. I completed the look with a clear bag with chain hardware to add more texture to the look and a pair of Marc Fisher combat boots which I thrifted a couple of months ago to test out the combat boot trend before I purchased this new pair. Check out the thrift haul on my Instagram Highlights here. And you can see this coat previously styled here and here. I hope everyone is complying with all the guidelines concerning the Covid 19 pandemic. Let's unite to fight this common enemy. Thank you so much for reading.

2020 Fashion Trend: Colored Leather







          eather is a huge trend this season, especially colored leather and I am loving the trend! If you are into the trend too, this post is for you. This cameo color puffy sleeve dress, available here and here is suitable for spring with a pair of black leggings or tights. This look is suitable for activities and occasions like school, shopping or running errands; accessorize the look with colored accessories like the wine color bucket bag, combat boots and statement earrings and you would have a great outfit for fashion events like blogger meet-ups or conferences. If you need more inspiration, check out my previous post here and here. Happy viewing, happy styling.

Puffy sleeve blazer + Velvet






                իi everyone, I hope we are all doing great; just a short blog post here to brighten up our day. There is so much negativity and uncertainty out there right now and I believe everyone just have to do what we can to keep our spirits up. I was looking through my Blog Archives the other day and realized that I had not published this post featuring one of my holiday outfits so, I decided to get it done. I wore this puffy sleeves, embellished (embroidered) vintage blazer over a vintage silk ruffle neck blouse paired with velvet pants and gold singback and a box clutch. I wore this outfit to Church a few days after the New Year. I pray that the blessings and good tidings of the new never leave us. Thanks so much for reading.

Shoe Lovin' - Square toe Satin Loafers








              quare toe shoes are trending this season and so is loafers. Although, this classic shoe style has been around for a long time, it cycles in and out of the fashion scene from time to time. It has reemerged as a trend this season mostly because of the square toe trend. I spotted this satin loafers on line and decided to feature it here on the blog on the Shoe lovin' Series. The pearl accessory or embellishment is such a cute detail and the cameo color gives a nod to the combat shoes trend. This shoe by sole society, has sold out online but you might still find them in pre-loved sites like Porshmark and Tradesy.

LOFT Fashion Rental







              ustainable fashion is gaining more recognition and several retail stores are making adjustments in how their fashion is made or sold in order to cater to the needs of their customers who crave sustainability in fashion. Not every one is interested in fast fashion anymore; most consumers are looking into ways they can get more buck for their dollars. This might be the reason that clothing or fashion rental (a form of sustainable fashion) is catching on. A new store that just got into this trend is LOFT. The fashion retail store has a new fashion rental service that is somewhat similar to that of Rent the Runway. Loft is, and has always been one of my favorite stores especially for work attire and I was very happy to learn about this new service and decided to share the news on the blog. If you are interested in knowing more about this service, check it out here.

Camel Coat + My favorite Winter Accessory







his is another one of my favorite coats to wear in the winter time, this camel long coat. Camel coat is just another classic or winter essential every lady should have in their closet. There are so many cheaper and more affordable options these days at fashion retail stores like Asos and Zara.  I got this from a consignment store about seven or eight years ago well before camel coats became a huge trend. You can get more information on my previous post. If you still need a camel coat at this time, consider checking the end of season sale around March and April.

Winter Casual Style: Long green coat + square toe boots







              he weather in Minnesota pretty much dictates much of what goes on around here especially your wardrobe. If you love fashion and care about how you present yourself, then you have to have a solid winter wardrobe if you live in this city. And a solid winter wardrobe includes two or more winter coats and boots and sweaters. These pieces can cost a lot if you want really good quality but I have a tip for you if you want to go shopping for winter attire; try consignment or thrift shopping. This tip is not a secret to anyone anymore and definitely not a secret to any reader of this blog.
