Transitioned

This is the second time I’m wearing this gorgeous leopard print midi that I received as a gift from my sis. If you remember, I wore it last season with a black mock neck tucked in with tights and booties. However, now that the weather is warmer, I decided to break it out and add a pop color!

I chose a coral ruched blouse that can be adjusted to wear long or short. I also wanted to dress up my skirt for an”office chíc” sort of look so I included a sequined trimmed blazer for a little bling! Lastly, a girl can’t forget her shades. Transitional look… accomplished! Which of your favorite pieces have you transitioned lately?

Happy Memorial Weekend!

Like many of you, I celebrated the Memorial Day weekend by hanging out with family and friends enjoying a great cookout! We actually had so much food left over it was crazy! On a serious note, I do try to keep in mind the purpose of each holiday as it passes through the years and reflect on its impact today. For some who may not know, Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day back in 1868 and is said to have begun after the Civil War where women in the Southern states would decorate the graves of fallen Union and Confederate soldiers. It began to catch on and sometime after  WW2  the name was changed to Memorial Day and would occur every year on May 30th because that is when the  flowers would be in full bloom and leading into summer.

In 1971, Congress decided that the day would become an official day of observance to be recognized on the last Monday every year in May for all those that served and died in a US war. Like many of our other holidays, the date may change from year to year and can make it hard to keep track of. However, no matter the date, I appreciate the fact that we as a nation choose to recognize those men and women who fought so passionately and have lost their lives. I pray that everyone takes a little  time to remember those who were fallen so they are not forgotten. May God continue to have a blessed and safe Memorial!

Home

I love when I am able to see my family in Northern VA. It’s almost like being a kid again! When your home nothing seems to matter. Mom literally gives you everything you need and if your a “daddy’s girl,” you get everything you want!

I also love going back now that I have a family because my children get to play and bond with their cousins. It’s a feeling that I never want to loose nor forget… it’s the feeling of home.

Pictured below is my mom and lil sis who are both fashionistas in their own right! 😀
