Chambray Wrap | OOTD

Here is another OOTD from my trip to New York during NYFW. On this day, all I could think about was being comfortable yet pulled together. I decided on some tried and true classic styles and colors for a day of running around. This wrap top from A Leap of Style is a beautiful chambray color in a flatting style. The gathered sleeve definitely adds some interest while the wrap design is super flattering to my figure. Add in another flattering, classically cut pair of cigarette pants from Steve Guthrie’s collection and it’s a home run.

As I thought about choosing a shoe for this look I carefully considered how much walking I’d do and that helped me decide quickly. I mean, what’s true comfort with out a comfortable shoe? When my feet are happy, I’m happy so I opted for my trusty black converse.

I kept my accessories minimal with two sets of thin bracelets on each wrist and my stitch earrings from Myth & Symbol. My absolute favorite thing about this OOTD is that almost everything came from Houston. It brings me no greater joy than to support talented designers and businesses from my great city. Enjoy!

Victoria Dashiki | OOTD

I wore this victorian inspired dashiki in NewYork during NYFW 2016 and it made me feel like a ball of fire:untouchable and hot. The rich variations of reds, oranges and yellows give that blaze effect. It was as though I left a trail of flames in my every step. When you’re wearing the right clothing, it should make you feel invincible. I can’t tell you how many strangers loved this top and stopped me to ask about it. Every now and then, you must make a statement and on this day, I did it in this fabulously ruffled top. Enjoy!

Simple Prints | OOTD

At this point we all know this Houston summer will only get hotter so why not keep cool the way we used to when we were kids. Matching short sets!!! Some may also call it resort wear because it does give you that vacation feel. I can’t count how many my siblings and I had as kids. With two younger brothers and one older sister I bet my mom just wanted to keep things simple. It takes all the guess work out of getting dressed. You know you have a top and bottom with the same print so getting dressed is a breeze.

The hardest part about this look¬†was choosing the print. I went for my favorite colors (black and white) and threw on my trusty wedges. All done! The leaf print just really makes me feel like I should be relaxing so I will be doing so on my sofa until my trip in July. Lol When it comes to fit the top is a crop style so it’s boxy and loose. The shorts are loose as well but have a high waist. This is good news for people like my who enjoy a good crop top but don’t want to show too much belly button. Just a little sliver of school is perfect.

Back to Basics | OOTD

You slept through your alarm or didn’t set it. You hit the snooze 4 times and now you’re going to be late! When you’re in a rush and you need to get out of the house quickly go back to your basics. Black, white, a crew neck t-shirt, and jeans always do the trick for me. I don’t have to worry about matching, other colors, or it being comfy. It’s all so easy and best of all, you can’t mess it up. Lol
