It’s Thursday! This week has flown by and I am happy about it. I think today’s look is definitely up there as one of my favorites. I absolutely love graphic tees. A graphic tee allows you to be creative and expressive.Unsure of how to style a graphic tee? Keep it simple! You can never have too many if you ask me! You can pretty much wear this look anywhere, even for Valentine’s Day if you like. I bought this hot pink leather moto jacket last year and sadly its no longer available in this particular color. I thought it would be fun to add a pop of color to this look and I really feel its the icing on the cake. You guys know I will throw on my favorite boyfriend jeans and fringe boots with just about anything. I think this outfit came together perfectly. Don’t you?
If you didn’t know, I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. It is a place that is near and dear to my heart. I know the Detroit you may hear about on the news sounds unsettling. And that it is. But, growing up it was my home. And there is no place like it. When I tell people I am from Detroit, they are usually surprised. I suppose we all have our thoughts on our expectations of people and where they’re from. I guess because of what they have heard, they expect someone from Detroit would act or behave a certain way. I’m not really offended. But, you most definitely can’t talk down on my city to me!! lol. I always will represent proudly where I am from!!
This tee speaks volumes about my city, my home. Most times, it does feel like Detroit vs Everybody. The challenges my city faces are definitely difficult. But, the memories I have growing up in “Tha D” always makes me smile. I remember when I was little, playing in the park at Belle Isle across from my grandmother apartment, Easter egg hunts at my church, riding my bike in my neighborhood and getting ice cream at our neighborhood ice cream shop. My high school, Martin Luther King Jr. Sr. is one of the top three high schools in the city. The memories I have of my classmates and teachers are priceless. Cruising downtown with my friends, the summer music festivals at Hart Plaza and eating delicious food in Greektown on a warm summer night. My mom was a community activist and worked hard at rebuilding the neighborhood and serving the community. Everyone knew Mrs. Taylor! She would take me with her to the community meetings and activities. She showed me what its truly is like to give back to your community and to be selfless as well. Looking back, I can appreciate those moments. Her love for the city was truly grand and she loved every second of the work she had done. My mother passed away five years ago. My dad is still there in the home I was raised in. I haven’t visited home since I’ve had my daughter. I’m tearing up a bit writing this post because the memories of home are so vivid and strong.  Even though I live in Dallas now, there is truly no place like home. Detroit, I am rooting for you! And I love you.

Happy Sunday! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner its time to peep into your closet and put together a stylish look! If you’re like me, when date night rolls around or special occasions like Valentine’s I always draw a blank on what to wear. More like hating everything in my closet and wonder where are my tops, dresses and everything else lol. So this time around, I thought ahead and managed to put together an edgy look, but yet chic look for you. This simple silk, one shoulder top is absolutely perfect for a special night and can you believe I found it on thredUp? thredUp is a wonderful site where you can find gently used or like new clothing by great brands at a fabulous price! This gorgeous top, along with my favorite ripped, boyfriend jeans and my favorite camel coat makes for an easy outfit. Throw on some great jewelry and you’re good to go!
Oh, if you haven’t seen my previous post wearing a fabulous red, one shoulder jumpsuit, make sure you do. Its a stunner!

Hello There! Valentine’s Day is around the corner, can you believe it?  I started searching high and low a few weeks back for the perfect night out look for Valentine’s Day. I believe I’ve found it! Who doesn’t love a sultry, red outfit for a night out on the town?? This quintessential red jumpsuit is the perfect mix of sophistication, sass and sexiness and I’m here for it!! It was FREEZING the morning we shot this look. I was so glad I brought my faux fur jacket along to keep me warm! I’ve had this coat since last year and I am always so excited when the weather gets cold enough to wear it. Pair the red jumpsuit with the faux fur jacket along with gold accessories and you have a winner!! Just wait until you see your honeys’ mouth hit the floor when you walk out in this gorgeous jumpsuit. Are you convinced that you NEED it yet? It also comes in a blush, nude pink shade, as well as black. All for under $50?? Get it girl!!!
Oh and make sure you check the size chart on the site when ordering so that you have the right size. I am wearing a size 6 according to ASOS size chart and my measurements.
What do you think about this look? Do you have a Valentine’s Outfit already in mind? Please share!
See you Sunday for the next post!

Hi there! So glad you stopped by the blog today. I’m keeping it pretty “simple” in today’s look. A military style jacket, cozy turtleneck and ripped boyfriend jeans all come together for this easy, sophisticated look.  You could wear this anywhere and look pulled together and amazing! I’m not sure if I ever shared, but Olivia Palermo (from the old MTV reality show “The City”) is my “style icon” and all time favorite fashionista. I always feel that she gets it “right!” So this look is inspired by her! Her looks are simple, but yet so chic and sophisticated. If you are not familiar with her, Google her!! She can literally do no wrong when it comes to fashion in my eyes…

Who is your “style icon?”

Hi there friends! One thing is for certain, I have been a girl all about capes and ponchos this fall/winter season. They are quick and easy to throw on and make a quick outfit. For me, I have to find one that is the perfect length that allows my legs to show and give me a bit of height. This ASOS cape does just that! It is a bit wide on me, so I used a skinny belt to create some shape and flare. Also, this cape is REVERSIBLE! So you get two looks for one cape, great buy if you ask me!! I am also wearing my favorite Over The Knee boot this season, the “Gorgeous” boot by Steve Madden! It is the PERFECT dupe for the Stuart Weitzman “Highland” boot. For under $150, I have no problem indulging in this look for less option.
Have you participated in the cape trend? What do you think of it?
Check out my previous looks wearing some great cape options herehere and here!

Hey lovelies! I have another color combination for you today. Camel and gray looks so good together don’t you agree? Its nothing like a great pair of camel boots and off the shoulder sweater to build a casual but sophisticated look. You guys see me wear these gray jeans ALL the time. Unfortunately, they are no longer sold. I hate that because they are my absolute favorite pair of jeans. I did link a few similar for you below, I hope that helps. The sweater can also be worn as a dress, but I prefer it as a sweater. It’s surprisingly warm considering we shot this look in 30 degree weather… Brrr!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you would know my birthday was on Friday!! I am celebrating 34 years of life on this earth and I am so blessed. Honestly, it feels like the older you get, your birthday becomes “just another day.” But, I don’t take it for granted! As my mom would say, I thank God for life, health and strength! And its so true!! Count your blessings!!
Have you worn any of the color combo’s I posted lately? If so, please tag me on Insta or comment below so I can check you out!! I’d love to see it. See you soon!!

Wearing white in the winter time is considered a faux pas to some. I use to be one of those people who would never wear white in the winter. I can be old school in some ways, but not anymore when it comes to fashion! I’ve learned through my Pinterest and Instagram addiction that white can easily be worn during the colder months. So I scoped out my closet to see what look I could come up with and I think I did pretty well, don’t you agree? This beautiful coat and taupe accents worked well together with the contrast of the white pants. My gorgeous, leather driving gloves were a Christmas gift from my Mother – in – law. To say she did a fabulous job is an understatement!! She also gifted me this shawl coat a few Christmas’s ago and I love it so much. Olivia Pope anyone?
Do you wear white after Labor Day? How do you like to wear it in colder months?
Chat with you Sunday in my next outfit post!!

You already know I’ve been in a blush pink sorta mood lately if you seen my previous blog posts (click here and here). It’s such a soft, flirty, subdued color that I am totally into. Blush pink paired along with cool gray tones of the moto jeans and fringe booties (worn previously here) offers up serious eye candy! I am really in love with the quilted bag!! It’s a great Chanel “look for less” option with a wallet friendly price point. Sadly, its sold out at the moment. But, if you stalk the site, hopefully they’ll restock soon. Its such a great piece and I want you to have it!! I’ll also post on my Instagram if I notice that its restocked.
I wish you a great week! This Friday is my 34th birthday! I am thankful to God for allowing me to see another year. I can’t wait to share it with friends and my family this upcoming weekend.
See you Tuesday for my next post!!

Hey Loves! Welcome back! This is my final look from my “NYC Street Style” blog shoot while I was in New York in December for a weekend girls trip. I love digging into my closet and being able to come up with looks that are oldies but goodies. All of the items in this post I’ve had for over a year or so and can always count on them to be “in style.” Sometimes, having a blog can be a little hard on the wallet. There are so many new styles of clothes, shoes and accessories out there that I want to put my own personal spin on and share with my readers. However, its always great to have staple items in your closet you can rely on. This look is one of them! It was so perfect for walking the concrete jungle and taking in the city!
I promised to share with you a little of what we did on our girls trip. I feel like we ate the entire time while we were there lol. We ate at Sara Beth’s twice for brunch. The food was so good!! I definitely recommend it. Their breads and pastries along with homemade preserves were absolutely wonderful! We also visited Chelsea Market. We strolled the halls and stopped in almost every yummy vendor and  shop to see all of the food goodness. Homemade pasta, fresh donuts, spice shops and the cutest seafood market, along with many more shops, were all amazing! We also had dinner at Buddakan. If you ever seen Sex and the City, the movie, you recall where Carrie had her rehearsal dinner at the restaurant with the huge chandeliers? Yes, that place! The food was outstanding! Their steamed pork buns are absolutely delicious!! Oh New York, you have my heart!
We stayed in TriBeCa at the cutest boutique hotel, Duane Street Hotel! It was the perfect location-a few minutes from SoHo and near lots of shops and restaurants. But, also tucked away on a quiet street! The staff were so nice and friendly AND they have fresh chocolate chip cookies each day for you in the lobby. With those kind of treats, you have my business! The next time I visit New York again, I would definitely go back.
We went to see The Lion King while we were there as well. It was my second time seeing it and my friends first. It was absolutely AMAZING! I always get so emotional in the very beginning of the show. If you have not seen it yet, you must check it out! It was worth every penny!
Our girls trip was so much fun and just what I needed. I work a full time job, a mommy to a toddler and a wife. Sometimes, I feel I am pulled in so many different directions. It can be so overwhelming and challenging! I thought I would be super emotional when we dropped Camille off to daycare the morning I was leaving. I teared up a bit, but reminded myself that this trip is for me and that I will be back soon to see her smile and hear her giggles. It was great to have a break from it all and let my hair down. I can’t wait to do it again!
Do you have any fun trips coming up? I’d love to hear about it!

Happy 2016!!! I am a girl who loves coats! It could be because I grew up in Michigan and every fall, my mom and I would go shopping for new winter coats. I would always get one for school and one for church. Even though I now live in Dallas and our winters are short, I pretty much buy a new coat each year. It’s such a habit and I don’t mind one bit. My mom was tall at 5’9 and I would always envy her ability to wear ankle length coats because they just looked so fabulous on her. She was a fashionista too (Rest in Heaven Mom)! I’m only 5’3-but all legs, however, there aren’t many long coats out there that I can rock without drowning in them. Well, when I spotted this one I knew I had to have it. It’s more of a midi length coat which is perfect for my height. The fact that it has a funnel neck and a gorgeous camel color was icing on the cake! I personally would wear it with heels to give me some height. But, I’ve seen plenty of Pinterest pictures of women wearing coats like this with sneakers and I’m feeling it!
I can’t believe that we are already into a new year. When I started this blog, almost a year ago, I didn’t know if I could fully commit to it. Being a new mom is amazing and challenging at the same time. Also, trying to meet the demands of every day life can be a juggling act. But, the fact is this blog has motivated me like never before! I have so many things that I want to do to take my blog to the next level! I feel that my blog has taken me places, allowed me to meet people and do things that I would have never thought could happen. It’s only the beginning but I am still amazed at how far along I’ve come being a blogger. It’s crazy how certain opportunities have fallen in my lap at the most perfect time. It’s so unreal! It’s as if God is saying, “I told you this was for you!”
When I initially started my blog, I thought, “ok, so you’ll do the blog and that can be an extension of yourself. Something you can do on the side that you’ll enjoy.” Well, scratch that! It means so much more to me than that. My mindset is now “lets go from a blog to a brand!!” I’m ready to get started my friends. Tell me, what are you going to do in 2016 to go to the next level??
Let’s grow together and make it happen!!
