Happy Birthday to a Style Icon; First Lady, Michelle Obama






Happy 53rd  birthday to first lady Michelle Obama; a beautiful, elegant, classy, confident and intelligent woman who is a great role model for young girls and women everywhere. Her fashion style has evolved gracefully over the years and she is my style Muse. I wish her many more beautiful years as I express my appreciation to her and her husband; the 44th President of the United States for their great service to the Nation.

Happy Monday Everyone; so, it's new week, new goals. However, some people do not have much enthusiasm when it comes to Mondays and they usually require some boost to get going which in most cases is a cup of coffee. I am not a huge coffee drinker and aside from the little changes in lifestyle like going to bed early on Sunday night; another boost that gets me going on Mondays is "Fashion." Yeah, remember the tip/phrase; "look good, feel good?" It does not need much explanation.


Now, the color pink is trending and what better way to show it off this winter than in a pink coat or jacket? definitely a big fashion statement. Whether you work in a corporate or casual work environment, pink color outfits; when styled in the right way can be work appropriate. Another styling tip is to incorporate the color into an outfit with accessories like pink bags and shoes and varying the shade of pink is a great idea too. Below are some outfit inspiration style boards  to start off the week.  Thanks a lot for reading.

Draped in Oversized blue Coat and blanket scarf.





It's Friday! Woot!! Woot!!! And Friday calls for a casual style. This is one of those days when you can't even deal; you just want to go with the flow of the cold, windy, dreary weather. I'm off running errands today and to get ready, I got in my closet and just grabbed the blanket scarf and this huge blue coat and draped them on. The only stylish thing I did for this outfit was making a conscious effort to wear a white button down shirt instead of a sweater. I did throw on a couple of tees under the shirt by the way because the aim or objective here, is just to keep warm.


Oh, I also put on a pair of burgundy color booties for a pop of color (blogged about HERE) and it went well with the colors in the scarf. Like I always say, blanket scarfs are very essential for the Winter time. This particular one I have on here is more like a comforter or duvet because it is really, really huge...😅
Bundled up like this in the cold and running around doing errands, you get the feeling that you are still home laying in bed...hehehe..😉


I hope the week was great for you. I'm so looking forward to having a beautiful weekend and I pray you have a nice one too. What are your "go-to" pieces for staying warm this Winter? Thanks so much for reading.

Maxi Dress + a Hat

 

 
 
 
Happy Thursday Friends; first of all, I want to say a big "Thank-you" to everyone that stops by this blog. I really appreciate your readership and support. I do not have the best pictures or the best layout and I'm tired of apologizing for my picture quality on here (which actually are taken by my kids with my iPhone camera) but I'm really amazed that other bloggers and visitors do not mind the pictures and they keep stopping by to read and leave comments. So, thank-you all so much. I really appreciate you. Blogging has nothing to do with soliciting for "likes" and "comments" but really all about the love for "Publishing and Sharing."
 
 
So, I wore this outfit to Church yesterday for our midweek bible study and you might not know it from the blurry pictures but I am layered-up like an onion. I wore a tank-top maxi black dress over a turtle neck sweater dress and wore my over the knee boots all in this one outfit (due to the freezing temperature) and also a long camel color coat that reaches down to my ankles which I took off to take these pictures 🙆  Then, I flipped on a burgundy color floppy hat for extra warmth and pop of color. Yes! I got the cold taken care of! 😂
 
 
Do you know what else I'm happy to take care of? 2017! Yes, 2017 is my year, my baby, and I'm going to take control of it and take care of it the whole year through and by this I mean that I have all things under control by the grace of God. And to take care of it, I'll be doing all I need to succeed according to God's word. I'll read my bible more, pray more and show the love of God to others. Thanks so much for reading.

In the deep purple






 

Happy Wednesday Friends; I hope the new year is still going great. I'm going to make todays post as short as I can because seriously; I'm tired of whining about my Minnesota weather. The only thing I'll like to say though is that; "we're still in the deep freeze weather wise" with some moderate temperature thrown in here and there.  I decided to use the deep purple color of my sweater as the topic for this post.

This is an outfit comprising of some of the old pieces from my closet. The color combination definitely makes this cold weather bearable. Purple is one of my favorite colors and it is a color that always brings a smile to my face; pairing this deep purple sweater with this graffiti print pencil skirt definitely made my day brighter and warmer. To see how I styled this pencil skirt in a previous post, click HERE. Thank-you for reading.

Burgundy mock wrap skirt + A fur stole





Happy Tuesday 😀 This post really validates my love for faux fur this season. I have been draping faux fur stoles over most of my outfits recently and I don't think I'm going to stop anytime soon; ha! ha!! So, this is the outfit I wore to Church on Sunday and it might look a little matchy-matchy but at the time, there was no way I was going to leave the house without a scarf and this burgundy color stole I purchased over the holiday was the perfect accessory to go with this burgundy color mock skirt I bought from Boohoo two winters ago. Burgundy is a color that is somewhat prevalent in the fall and winter season and can be perfect in accessories too like the pair of booties I blogged about HERE. At the moment, I'm also loving this beautiful burgundy color velvet clutch HERE



It was freezing last Sunday and I was supposed to wear stockings with this outfit for warmth but I was running late for Church and did not want to waste more time looking for my stockings (I need to do a better job organizing my closet) so I just draped my long camel color coat over this outfit and I felt warm and cozy.The long coat also provided a deep contrast to the matchy-matchy burgundy color and I'm sorry I did not get a picture of it. What do you think of faux fur stoles ladies? Yay! or Nay? Thanks so much for reading.
