Black and Orange

Good Day Lovelies! I want to send a HUGE WELCOME to my new followers and a WARM Hello to my good ole' faithful followers!

To my "Northeasterner's", what a weekend huh? So unexpected, to say the least! Anywho, I am in love with orange this season. I don't know what it is but I have incorporated numerous orange pieces into my Fall wardrobe. Although, I am not big on Halloween, I still decided to be a little cheesy and throw on my black and orange to acknowledge the day. Well, wishing everyone a lot of warmth and a very BLESSED week! Happy Halloween and Be Safe!
 One of my Fall must have's was a pair of leopard booties, so when I stumbled upon these babies on Akira's website a couple of months ago, I purchased them ASAP. This is my first time wearing them and I must say they are pretty comfy!
What I Am Wearing:
Faux Leather Jumper-H&M

Leopard Maxi Dress

Hi All!
I overslept yesterday morning, my alarm clock malfunctioned and I literally had NO TIME to get ready. So, I saw this dress sticking out of my closet and knew this would be the best quick/no fuss option. Anywho, this is what I wore to work yesterday. My cousins, who are educators, asked me to style some looks wearing flats because heels aren't always practical for this one is for you Ms. Tracie!

 No Clue what's up with this face...
Because I chose not to wear a black boyfriend blazer to break up some of the pattern, I kept my accessories very simple to keep the look from appearing too busy.
I threw on a pair of leggings underneath the dress due to the lower sheer portion of the dress and the chilly Fall weather...
What I Am Wearing:
Necklace-Forever 21
Ballet Flats-Aldo
Jacket-Loehmann's (Years ago)

Corporate Chic: Grey Poupon Anyone?

Greetings All!

So, when I first saw this dress on the H&M website, I knew I had to have it and luckily I was able to find it in the store...that never happens for me. I always see items on their site and go to the store and it's either sold out or my size is no longer available. I think this dress is such a gorgeous color for the Fall. It reminds me of Honey Dijion, hence, the "Grey Poupon" post title...I tried to be a little clever.. Anywho, this is what I wore today. I loved the 70 degree weather we had today. Seems like Fall is finally approaching and we will not have too many more days like this. So, I am soaking it up...
What I Am Wearing:
Shift Dress-H&M
Necklace-J.C. Penny's
Pumps-Steve Madden (Beasst)
Ring-Charlotte Russe (Old)

As Always, MUCH APPRECIATION, for stopping by my blog! XOXO

    Rain Rain Go Away...

    Hello All!

    So, I've been a little spoiled with this wonderful weather we've been experiencing. So, needless to say I wasn't too thrilled at the rainy/chilly forecast for today and the rest of the weekend. Anywho, I picked this skirt up on a recent trip to Forever 21, and I was really drawn to the Fall/Earth Tone colors of this skirt. Here is my look! Also, I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to 7eventh Letter for awarding me the Kreativ Blogger Award. She is so stylish and I found out we have quite a bit in common, make sure you check her blog out! 
    I originally threw this ring in my shopping cart on LULU's site just to meet the minimum for free shipping but once it arrived...I fell in love with it!!! I have a feeling I will be rocking it a lot. 
    I don't know if you ladies remember but these are the wedges I picked up when I went Thrifting in Chicago this past July and I finally wore them today!

    Vintage Loving: Neon Lines

    Hello Ladies!

    I just love this's something about the neon squiggly lines that does it for me! When I first purchased this dress, the length was a little too matronly for my liking, so I had it shortened.  Being that this dress screams retro 80's, I paired it with my Sam Edelman-Lorissa pumps to give this dress a little modern twist. I'm all about mixing vintage with modern. Here's my look. Hope Ya Like :-)
