Spring-ISH

Where are you Spring?! Still feels like Fall-ish weather, warm with a breeze. So I decided to wear an outfit that matches the weather. Black with a pop of Pink! The dress was cool although it was black, the shoes gave it the Spring look.

Wearing a dark colored outfit with pop accessories always makes the outfit. Being that it was black any color would bring out the outfit. The dress was simple with a touch of class and would you believe it was free?? My aunt gifted the dress to me! The shoes and clutch came from the same store months apart but matched perfectly and waiting to be worn at the right time.

My philosophy is it doesn’t have to be expensive to be classy and chic!

Unscripted

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!

Breakin All the Rules!

Memorial Day is around the corner but who says you have to wait until then to wear white? Not I! The person that wrote that rule obviously wasn’t a true fashionista!  I don’t like following the rules when it comes to dressing. Who says you have to match your shoes with your top or your earrings? Or that white is only meant to be worn during the summer months? I think all colors should be worn any time of the year.

When I decided to wear those colors it had basically come down to me saying okay whatever ! The colors match why not? Who gonna check me boo?? No one will actually tell you that something doesn’t match even if in the back of their mind they feel like it doesn’t. I’ve seen different patterns/prints mixed and thought to myself that doesn’t go together but when I continued to look at it I was convinced that it did blend well! My fashion goal is to step outside my box and be more creative with my looks, mixing more prints and more color blocking.

Sometimes you just have to go to the closet and just put somethings together. Try them on, lay them out on the bed, send pics to friends if you need feedback. You know how we ladies buy things but then don’t have anything to wear with it, well this may  be the time to try a new outfit and walk out the door feeling confident! Show your creativity in your outfit!
