Recap: My weekend…

Hi loves! I hope all of you had a super fabulous weekend! I had a great weekend that consisted of some much needed rest!

Saturday: I relaxed all day long up until later that evening when I did a little shopping. Afterwards, I ended up going over to my big sisters house to spend time with her which ended up being a sleepover… So much fun! Being that I went out later that evening I decided to wear something super comfortable which consisted of tights, one of my favorite t-shirts, and a jean jacket. However, I decided not to capture that look because it was nothing super special LOL.

Sunday: I enjoyed a great service at church and afterwards like my usual Sundays which are dedicated to spending time with family. My look is a mix of something old and something new!

My look…

Overalls…

Hi loves!

Okay so overalls are pretty trendy right about now! However, as a child I wore them faithfully but now I’m not sure if I could pull them off now. ย So yesterday I was browsing through my Instagram timeline and I came across of my fabulous friend Mia totally werking a pair of overalls! I immediately texted her and told her that I she needed to send me the picture of her in them because she was definitely blog worthy.ย Side note: I do that to my friends all the time! LOL.ย Also, the lovely Veronica whom is a friend of Mia’s rocked a pair of overalls and she looked super cute! Maybe just maybe I might give them a try after these fabulous ladies rocked their overalls… We shall see!

I love how Mia paired her overalls with a stripped shirt and a classic white pair of Chucks!ย Veronica paired her overalls with a simple t-shirt along with a sassy headband and a pair of Jack Rogers! Totally loving their looks! Also, both ladies purchased their overalls from Wet Seal.

(My mommy is on the left and my Aunt Glenda is on the right) And… My mommy’s short haircut was EVERYTHING! This will always be one of my favorite pictures of us ๐Ÿ™‚

Recap: My weekend…

Hi loves! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! My weekend was pretty relaxing after a long work week but more importantly I enjoyed it.

So I only have one look from this weekend which is from Saturday… a total bummer! Saturday night I had planned my outfit for church but when I woke up it was raining like crazy so I had to completely change my outfit for the day. I was so upset because I really liked my outfit and I was pressed for time to look for another one! The outfit that I ended up wearing was cute but once I got home I totally forgot to take pictures of it. I have no idea what I was thinking but I digress LOL.ย 

Saturday: I spent the day with one of my dear friends whom I’ve known since we were sophomores in high school. I really enjoyed catching up with her!ย

Shirt: I purchased this shirt from Aeropostale last week. I haven’t shopped in Aeropastale since I was in middle school so I was completely shocked when I ended up in there while I was shopping and found this cute top.ย Side note: This is my version of a crop top because I don’t think I have the guts to wear an actual crop top!ย 

White jeans: I purchased them from Target and they fit soooo well!ย 

Sandals: Ross

Necklace: Charlotte Russe

Bracelet: Target

Hair: My hair is in a puff which is a go to style when hair is not cooperating or when I’m simply being lazy and I don’t feel like doing it.ย

White tee and shorts…

Hi loves!

Yesterday my work look was definitely not blog worthy! At my job some days are dedicated to doing crafts with my kids all day long so needless to say I am definitely not getting fancy because I absolutely hate getting anything on my clothes. That will seriously ruin my entire day LOL! Anyways, so my after work look was nothing fancy but it was comfy, cute, and simple.

ImageSide note: For years I have been very uncomfortable with my arms to the point where I would not wear anything sleeveless or I would do anything to camouflage them. Not saying that I lack self esteem but that was something that always bothered me. However, up until recently I have stopped caring! It was like I had an epiphany one day and it no longer mattered to me to cover up my arms. So sometimes we have to stop worrying so much about what we wish we could change about ourselves and focus on living the best possible life. I just wanted to share that…

White tee: Walmart. It was only five bucks too! You can never have enough white tees!

Shorts: JCPenny. Yes, I am a repeat offender! (Previously worn here)ย Who cares!

Shoes: Ross

Necklaces: Forever 21

The black dress…

Hi loves!ย 

FINALLY! I’m giving you all an outfit post! So yesterday it was ridiculously hot here in VA so I wanted something that I could slip on and stay as cool as possible so I decided to wear my favorite black dress. Nothing too fancy but still a fun and stylish look for summer!ย 

ImageDress: This is one of my favorite black dresses! I purchased it from Cotton On last summer and it goes with basically everything.

Shoes: I purchased them from Ross last weekend and they are my favorites.ย 

Necklace: Forever 21 (super old)ย

Monday’s look…

Hi loves!

Yesterday’s look was nothing too fancy but I had a meeting so I had to get a little dolled up. It was soooo humid here in VA so I wanted something that would keep me pretty cool in the stuffy warm weather.

Blazer: I purchased it from Sears a few years ago and it is one of my go to black blazers.

Dress: I purchased it through Avon a few years ago and this is one of those dresses that can be paired with so many things. I love it!

Shoes: Target.

Watch: Marc Jacobs.

Hair: My hair is an old twist-out pulled up into a high puff. My hair needs to be washed but I’m being lazy!ย Side note: I will be doing some posts on different hair styles that I do with my natural hair and what products I use as well.ย
