Welcome to my Fall

The start of a new school year, fashion week, pumpkin lattes (if that’s your thing…sorry but no thanks) a new position after 19 years at work, leading the continuation of my fathers legacy, and all along looking stylish has made fall a very busy season.

The point I’m trying to make is that we all go through things, whether they are apparent to others doesn’t make them any less importance.

For me when I get dressed it makes me feel ready to take on my day! To inspire others! When others tell me that my dances made them smile or laugh…I am so all about that!! Wouldn’t you rather make someone feel uplifted, alright to be themselves rather than put someone down, make them feel bad!?

It’s harder to be and find kindness…WHY? Because we are human! Practicing to be authentic, kind, caring and inspiring is work…EVERYDAY! Let’s face it not everyday is that kind of day! So on those days we remind ourselves that we are struggling and trying our best and to be kind, caring and compassionate!

With that being said I have gathered some of my favorite looks and products of fall must haves this fall! To help inspire you to feel your best, to give your best!

Let’s start with Tee’s! These are easy go to pieces because they can be layered, dressed up with a tulle skirt , layered over a fancy dress, the sky is the limit! Obviously they are great for dressing down with jeans…keep scrolling you’ll see my takes!

Sweaters are a staple in the fall and a vest will be the perfect transition from the warm days to cold nights. You can never go wrong with Houndstooth!! Don’t you agree!?

The Grey knit and sparkle silver metallic boots tied together the warm tones of autumn like orange, burgundy and of course a plaid print in the mix.

Mix sweater dresses with fun upbeat prints like cheetah! Add a houndstooth with creamy fun textures! Add some graphic college style sweatshirts to create great collard shirt layers and Jean Friday’s!

Let’s talk pops! Like these pink hunter boots! I found them in the kids section on the Bloomies web site! A little color can go a long way with the right pieces.

Heel pops and neck bows! These are great places in any look to add your color pop!! Especially if your wardrobe may not be so colorful yet.

Now let’s talk texture! From real leather to faux what would fall be without them? Lace brings a romantic twist while feathers fly in with whimsy and fun!

So excited to have announced that I will be an affiliate with Courtney Adele! Her pop corn was gone before I could even take the picture LOL!!! Tea time and coffee breaks will NEVER be the same again once you step into the Olbali family products, something for everyone.

My foot has been feeling so much better with the Olbali hemp cream. My go to fragrance is called ‘Rose of no man’s land’ by Byredo. These new amazing metallic and matt eye shadows by Tarte I picked up at Ulta and I am crushing over them!!

So excited to be back in the swing if things! I will be sending a blog out quarterly, definitely and on occasion to introduce this amazing community with things I think will bring you inspiration, laughs and of course fun Style!!

Thanks for being here!!

Until next style,

Xoxo,

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!!

Until next style,
