Well the warm weather is coming to an end, so hard to say Goodbye! I’ll miss the summer nights outside sitting on the patio and talking with next to no clothes on lol. My most enjoyable thing about the warm weather is sitting on the rooftop of a nice hotel with good company while sipping.
Unscripted is a new hotel in Durham that has a pool on the rooftop. It recently opened and has been quite the popular spot. Nothing like being around good vibes eating good food and being able to dip your toes in the pool. Can’t ask for much more on the last weekend of summer.
I wanted to be dressed for a casual evening but sexy at the same time. Sometimes when you think of something too much it becomes frustrating and harder to accomplish. Well i decided last minute to put on some capri’s and plain white tank with blue heels. Everyone loved the heels, the royal blue(my fav color) seemed to catch everyone’s attention! I paired it with a royal blue/bright yellow clutch to bring out the outfit, simple yet classy!
I’ve always been a girlie girl, no doubt about that! I love dressing up and feeling like a million dollars. Looking like a a million dollars is always the goal but you definitely don’t have to spend a million dollars for any look!
Being invited to an formal gala a week before made me feel a little anxious but I knew I could pull it off. I just simply had to grind and be in Beast Mode! The look I was going for was to be sexy yet classy, no cleavage and not too much skin showing. Being in a room with an older crowd I didn’t want to portray the wrong image as this was my first time at this particular event and meeting new folk of prestige.
Well believe it or not I pulled off this entire look for about $30! (check below for prices) Sometimes formal dresses can be a little out of budget especially when we wear them only once for special occasions such as weddings or galas! I did not want to pay that much for one night! I ended up finding a dress online from a lady who had only worn it twice and it was the perfect fit, not too tight and not too big. The shoes and clutch bag were items I already owned but at good prices!
Be Confident, Be you! Dress tastefully and with class while staying true to yourself!
