Springtime Nautical Style

Happy Tuesday loves! I was so excited when Old Navy asked me to collaborate with them. I am loving their “Hi-Fashion” take on clothes. This campaign is an invitation to bend the rules, play with fashion your own way, and try something new! This month, I was challenged to take the neo-nautical trend and make it my own. I started with a day out shopping and stuck to the classical springtime nautical style of reds, whites, and blues and I wore it from head to toe. From the blue stripes in my scarf knotted around my neck, to my red and blue striped top, and the blue stripes in my fun sneakers. I wore some dark skinny jeans and a denim jacket to complete the perfect look to wear out on a shopping trip.

I’ve been shopping at Old Navy for years, I’m talking since high school. I can always count on finding some fun vibrant prints or a go to staple piece to add to my wardrobe and this time proved no different. I ran over to my nearest Old Navy store on my lunch break and before I knew it, I’d grabbed so many items and filled up an entire dressing room and was able to style two nautical looks including the one I’m wearing here. Be sure to check out my Instagram to see the other Springtime nautical look I styled later on this week and #SayHi!

Striped Body-con Skirt + Leather Moto Jacket

Happy Wednesday and International Women’s Day my loves!!

In today’s look, I styled my favorite striped body-con skirt + leather moto jacket. I added the red turtleneck underneath my moto jacket for a pop of color and as a symbol of solidarity for women everywhere on such an important day. I styled my havana twists in a twisted updo to add some personality to my overall look. Finally, I wore black tights and nude wedged booties, gold accessories, and a red lip to complete my look.

As many of you already know, today is “A Day without Women”, which appropriately falls on International Women’s Day. This day calls for women to choose from an assortment of ways to show solidarity:

1. Let your voices be heard on social media

2. Wear the color red

3. Miss a day of work

4. Call your local representatives

5. Only patron small business today.

I am in full support of the important premise of this day. And while I am at work today, I will continue to let my voice be heard as I stand for and fight for equal rights and inclusiveness of all women. You can visit here for more information international women’s day!

Gold pleated metallic skirt, blush turtleneck

Happy first of March my loves!

I wish I could say I’m currently outside in 60 degree weather frolicking about town with my husband in this beautiful pleated metallic skirt and a tissue thin blush turtleneck but I’m not. Instead, I’m trying to dry off into some respectful semblance of a professional. I got rained on and blown around this morning every which way. Listen, you never know just how fragile you are until an ungodly mixture of rain, hail, and 50 mph winds tosses you around like a rag-doll.

Anyway, let’s get down to this outfit. I’ve been seeing pleated metallic skirts everywhere (on pinterest, fellow bloggers, social media, magazines, you name it) and if my blog is the first place you’re seeing one, that’s totally ok! I hope I’m doing it some justice!! 😉  I came up with countless ways to style this skirt but decided to go with a blush turtleneck, and black ballet lace up flats. My gold metallic pleated skirt is a real eye catcher and focal point of the look so I decided to keep accessories neutral to let my skirt do all the talking.

You know what they say…sometimes less is more.

Camo Pants

Happy Monday loves! I think my “anthem” for this year might just be Big Sean’s song Bounce Back. I haven’t been consistent in my some areas of my life including posting on this blog and I plan to change that. ( I feel like with these camo pants, and my anthem, I can do just about anything.) I won’t beat up on myself but I will challenge myself to be better. Because, “if you’re a real winner, you know how to Bounce Back.”

Now I don’t know about y’all but 2017 has started off doing a little TOO MUCH! So I’m willing to count January and some of February as a “warm up”, if you are. I mean if you won’t tell, I sure won’t! 😉 Here’s the thing, Lexington, KY weather is a bi-polar joke, when it’s not raining, it’s snowing, or we have a wind advisory so this weekend, Hubby and I took full advantage of some beautiful weather and got busy shooting pics.

In today’s look, I’ve styled some fun camo pants with a gray turtleneck with pops of camel to complete the look. A friend at our church complimented me on my look and asked about where I got my pants and as I answered, I realized they were over 4 years old from Gap and I think it’s just so funny how trends come back around full circle. I always advise my girlfriends and readers to buy quality pieces that can be worn for an extended period of time in a variety of ways.

yellow maxi dress

Hey loves! Ready or not, Fall is finally here! As most of you know, this is my favorite time of year. My birthday is in November and the countdown has begun, and before you know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here! With that said, don’t go rushing to pack up your maxi dresses just yet. If you live anywhere near or in the South like me, hot temps have not let us out of its clutches. This yellow maxi dress is the perfect feather light piece to not only battle the heat, but you can easily layer a long vest or denim jacket on top as it cools down. Aviators will never go out of style and complement this look effortlessly, I’m wearing a pair of gold aviators similar to a pair from Simons Rayban aviator sunglasses.
