Suited summer

Summer is here and some of us will be working!! So here’s a little suited inspo for the upcoming season in the A. C. For me these looks won’t work cause I am in a hot box of a classroom!! The less layers for me the better!  But for those that need layers here are my top 3 combos for your best suited summer!

Sun dresses layered with a tweed jacket and neutral accessories are perfect for day looks that can convert into a hot summer night out or when you leave the A.C.! 

Bright and bold for those hot days.  Bring out the values of one color to make everything work well together! A silk tank and bright pop jacket. Love adding print like tiger to an orange look.  This was an inspirational day to say the least!!  I walked with so many amazing woman to create equality for African American woman, and to remind ALL women that we are queens!!  

Stepping through the summer garden chic and savvy!! Being a boss doesn’t stop because of a season!! Keep going! NEVER give up! Black and blue with a pop of turquoise will get you backyard BBQ ready straight from the office!

So remember these simple pieces to pair: Tweeds & sun dresses, pants & tanks and lots of color values for an uplifting summer filled with fashion!

Until next style,

Dresses of spring

What is a spring dress? For me that includes all kinds! From maxi to sun and a little bit of flow…it’s all about the details that you add with the dress to give the title spring!

Great cotton neutral wrap dresses can pop with layers and bigger than life bags!

This white embroidered beauty is from Mexico! It’s absolutely hands down a favorite!! love adding colorful accessories to give a celebration kind of vibe!

It’s not exactly a dress but adding what I call my wrestling belt created a dress vibe! The hot pink knee highs took it to a whole new level!

Loved the way that this yellow popped with the cloudy gray! The shape was fun and an instant mood boost! Gave a bit of royal vibes!

Fairytales are made of metallic fabrics and dainty necklaces! Working in like colors to your earrings and accessories creates a match made in heaven!

Textured lace, Jean jackets and evil eyes will keep the pep in your spring step!

Kaftans and an art show…yes please!! Keeping things easy breezy when on the go!

Denim gives far from the blues!! Pop it with colors from the print. I always find navy to be so flattering!

Love using hot summer day dresses in spring!! Great for layering and bringing in a little hot weather vibe!

Simple cotton dresses can be cinched at the waist to create a great shape!! Definitely invest in a neutral fringed sweater to have through chilly summer nights and well into fall and even winter!!

Grab that white linen dress and add tweed for some great texture!! Pair the look with a neutral! Hats are always a great accessory addition for spring!

So start getting use of your summer wardrobe by layering before spring is over!!

One jacket….3 ways

Sometimes you just find a piece that is so super easy to create multiple looks with!!! So here’s a blazer that has a pop of it’s own!

If you wonder why this purple and yellow goes so well together that’s easy, they are complimentary colors on the color wheel. Loved how the butterfly clips gave a magic moment with these fabulous gloves! It’s all about the details for me in this look!

So hard to not add purple with this jacket…this time with tulle and a bit of my favorite school girl vibe!! Don’t worry I will change it up for the next look…promise!!

Grab that long Maxi skirt, make it a strapless, cinch your waist with a belt! Added metallic pops help your eye moving head to toe!

So find a jacket that you just can’t get enough of and layer it up before spring is gone!

Until next style,

Black, White but make it pop!

Black and white are great basics but make them pop!  Adding these basics to your accessories with a colorful popping outfit, are the cake toppers to your look!! An unexpected gem that reads attention to details.

Take that LBD and layer on the pearls…classic and always chic!! Just don’t forget to make it your own look with a fun headband like this Nam Josh headband!!

A white blazer is a must for all year!! Yes I do wear white after labor day and before memorial day!! Why? Because it’s a basic and works well with the ENTIRE rainbow!! This headband print was magic with the plaid.  So try an organic shape print with a plaid or stripe!! Organic meets geometric, an opposite attracts situation!

How about some black and white stripes!? They go with ANYTHING!! As long as you let your imagination soar! Why not pair it with metallic, maybe a red…and you guessed it another fantastic headband!!

Make your accessories and dress match and then add in your black and white! Got a little school girl vibes with this look!!

Go crazy with Polka dots! Do all the same size, do opposites, add a color dot, and then a fun hair comb or earrings! Adore a whimsical accessory like fruit! It’s says….I AM READY FOR SUMMER!!

So get out the black and white and pop!

Until next style,
