A Lip and A Slip Into the Weekend…

A lot of my outfits are inspired by my mood. So, when the weekend arrives, I feel free. Free to wear whatever I want, HOWEVER I want. I’ve been rockin’ gym gear all week, so after putting in work -in and out of the office, you deserve a little glamour on the weekends!

Ah, the slip dress. I don’t think i’ll ever get tired of this trend. Simple, sexy, and goes with just about anything. I’ve always been and will always be a heel gal, but for every outfit that goes with heel, there’s a sneaker back up plan. It’s the New Yorker thing to do.

I’m a plain Jane when it comes to makeup, but a burgundy lip will always be in my makeup bag and today I brought her out to play for the perfect match!

I’m still leaving my hair curly, what do you guys think of the change up?

What are you slipping into this weekend? New Yorkers how about this Summer extension? Are you feeling it?

Birthday Wishes

It’s been a little bit over a week since I turned 31. I have to say, I don’t feel it and people say I don’t look it. It doesn’t really matter what year you are in your life, as long as you’re happy and healthy. That’s what matters. Without happiness, you’re stressed, and stress can bring you a world of complications. So, if you’re turning a year older, give thanks and put a smile on your face. Your heart, body and soul will thank you.

Speaking of soul, seems like an angel bit me in the ass and said “wear white on your special day”. I bought this sexy LWD 2, maybe even 3 years ago! And today I finally wore it! Sometimes when you have an event, the best buy is at the last minute. You don’t want to get stuck with an item you can’t wear on a regular basis, end up selling or giving it away because you think you’ll never wear it!

Today I’ve changed that way of thinking, although I did almost sell it -I just couldn’t resist the sexiness so I needed up holding onto it as long as I could! I added minimal nude sandals -you want all the attention to be on your white piece suit. The earrings were also part of the plan 2 years ago, and they also didn’t make it until now. Normally I would have thrown on some studs, but it was my birthday and my gut told me to go over the top!

Do you like to dress up for your birthday? Or are you a low key kind of gal?

Happy Long Weekend!

Sorry for being MIA lately! There’s been so much going on, so many changes in my life!

So here as you can see I reached out to a new photographer, @burritomilkshake on Instagram (recommended by @zamnsam), who is pretty amazing if you ask me. I think this might be the beginning of a wonderful blogger/photographer friendship. 🙂 Zamnsam, my baby sister has moved to California. We were inseparable since the day she was born. I love her and wish her all the best on her new journey…

Speaking of all this love, my love for black never gets old. “2 in the morning my mind is on you, 4 in the morning it still hasn’t moved…” I live for these dark moments. Here I’m wearing a mesh bodysuit and satin skirt for a total glam on look. I like to keep the sporty inspired pieces feminine with a twist or should I say a braid? I started to get my hair braided for those sweaty days at the gym, but also changing up my hair is something I want to start doing again this Summer. Do you remember my redhead days? And the blonde?!

Mesh, satin, lace are sexy, light and beautiful on the body. Summer goals or nah? How are YOU getting ready?

What lightweight fabrics will you be wearing?

Hard work pays off…
