Simply Royal

I love when I can put together and outfit on a whim and feel amazing in it! I wore this look to my oldest niece’s graduation recently. This was the first time wearing the jumpsuit since receiving it as a birthday gift from my little sister and I almost forgot I had it! 

Initially when I tried the outfit on, it was a little snug (bless God the baby wait is continuing to shed). I am almost to my pre baby weight and can’t wait to fit in everything comfortably again! Additionally, what better way to make a black and white outfit stand out? By adding a pop of color of course! Y’all ain’t ready! 😉

Going With the Flow

Like most of my titles that describe either what I am wearing or how I am feeling, this one is no different. I am literally going with the flow. At times it can be challenging trying to find what to wear as you progress in pregnancy because one day your clothes fit perfectly and the next, they don’t. Instead of getting frustrated though, turn to those easy to wear pieces that require little to no effort. In this case, you can never go wrong with a pair of black pull on pants, a fun top, a cardigan and comfortable shoes!

Sumtin Different

I enjoy going though my closet and throwing outfits together and even moreso when its a look that is not so matchy matchy. For some this might not be out there, but for others like myself, this is just enough! For the wedding I attended, it was super cold and windy therefore, short and sleeveless was out of the question! My goal was not only to be warm,  but to look chíc and inspiring too!

I think my mission was accomplished, what about you?

Be Smooth

I love this look! My outfit was on point and my hair was too! Lol. So I have worn this grey top and pant together before, however this time I wanted to add a printed scarf for contrast and my leather jacket for an added “smooth” look! However, I think my best accessory can be seen in the last photo!

Snood-Chíc

When it comes to fashion I love pieces that are different. When I saw this poncho style sweater I immediately fell in love with it! I soon found out that it was called a “snood” because the part that folds over the shoulders can be worn over the head (I rocked this last year in a previous blog post).

Even as that may be,  I don’t ever wear it out over my head. Lol. I think its more of the idea of it being versatile and having that option to wear as a hood. It is super chíc and stylish. Most importantly, its so me!

The Unexpected

I love the saying, “keep ’em guessing,” particularly when it comes to the style of dressing!  There is nothing wrong with liking what you like,  but sometimes we unconsciously get stuck doing the same old thing because we are comfortable and are afraid of the unknown. However with that being so,  every once in a while we have to learn to step out of the box.

When it comes to styling, everyone knows the “safe” color of choice is black. It’s easy to wear,  its easy to find and most importantly slimming! I love me some black just as much as the next person,  but instead of wearing all black from head to toe, try mixing it up and adding a color or a fun print. A colored blazer, sweater, pumps or even jewelry can turn any outfit from drab to fab! Just take a look!
