Autumn Leaves…

Happy Friday my loves! It’s almost the weekend :)…I wore this look to dinner yesterday and the print and color of this maxi skirt had me craving my all time favorite season to arrive; Autumn! I can’t wait to layer and pair nudes and neutrals with bold colors and all the beauty that comes with this season. So I thought the name of one of my dad’s favorite version of the song “Autumn Leaves” by Nat King Cole, was perfectly fitting for the title of this post…plus my skirt has leaves on it! (haha!) Is anyone else as ready for Autumn to arrive as I am?
Style Guide: When wearing a nude or neutral color on the bottom, try adding a bright or neon on top  to jazz up the overall look like I have done in this post. Adding a neutral skinny belt also helps to break up the look. Adding a brightly colored statement necklace doesn’t hurt either right? ;o)

Have y’all been watching the Olympics? I’ve been catching my fave sports, (Tennis, Gymnastics, & Swimming), early in the am and late at night! I am loving some Gabby Douglas! She is strong, beautiful, and loves the Lord! That is so rare and she is becoming a great role model for young girls everywhere. Some of my other faves to watch have been Serena Williams, Federer, & Michael Phelps to name a few! I enjoyed seeing a few minutes of the Nigeria vs USA basketball game as I was born in the US with Nigerian parents. I would have been happy to see either team win πŸ™‚ Don’t the Olympics just make you want to hit the gym and workout? lol! 
Have an amazing weekend lovelies!!
