Sheer Mystery

You ask what am I doing with an overcoat in the middle of the Summer? Whatever floats your boat, or should I say coat? L-O-L. It’s the perfect Summer coat: sheer, light, and full of dramas (aka the duster).

What’s lying underneath? A swimsuit turned bodysuit. Summer Fridays are in full effect at work and who knows where the early exit will lead you. Pool parties are a thing in the city, so why not dive right in after you punch out? I decorated my lower half in light denim flares. Light blue denim is not discreet and demands attention so find a pair that ARE flattering to your body type.

I am loving the gold chain trend this season. For this one, I had to contact a few sisters for it, but it was all worth it in the end. 4 chainz to fill up the chest was my goal. More is more this Summer and so I topped off the look with my staple gold hoops. Oh yeah and this season’s obsession, the DVF sandals. 🙂

What are you wearing to stand out on these last days of Summer?

Green With Envy

I can’t believe I am seeing the words Fall and Winter already! I don’t want the Summer to end, but girl and boy has it been HOT! To mix up a little bit of both seasons, I took an olive color midi, easy going dress and paired it with camel/brown ankle booties. Closed shoes are also a great way of covering up your ‘no time for a pedicure’ toes! The sunglasses and bright red lip added edginess to my Pre-Fall look.

Are you still shopping for Summer clothes or is your mind set on preparing for the Fall?

Denim x Denim x Denim

I went full on Britney and Justin today! I took denim on denim to the 3rd power indeed with this Dana Buchman denim tote.  Love that the bag is leopard inside just like my booties! Not sure if it was all the blue that had people turning heads or my ‘crazy hair I don’t care’ moment to top off the 90’s look.

Do you dig the curly redhead locks?

How do you think I pulled off the denim on denim on denim look?

Mod-ri Gras

It’s been a week since Fat Tuesday, but finally here is my Mardi Gras look. Instead of decorating the office with hearts all over for Valentine’s Day I went a tad bit more festive this year with purple, green and gold. There is something about decorating that boosts up my mood instantly. Mardi Gras is not just for party animals, but a way to celebrate life and enjoy it with other people. What holiday isn’t about celebrating life really? This Winter, oh you Winter -has not been an easy one, but I put all that aside and went with a purple mini which for me isn’t so mini (remember I’m 5 feet and a little something), a new turtleneck to add to the family, and some knee high boots for a complete mod look. Can’t forget the beautiful masks we played around with that were provided by my lovely co-worker.

How do you all think I pulled off the masked mod look?
