Good Morning! It’s going to rain in NYC today so if you’re in the surrounding area, bring your umbrella! I like to be well equipped for the rain (trench coat, extra umbrellas at the office, no suede shoes, etc.) so today I wore my 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target trench coat (sold out) with a light grey H&M button down (Actually prefer this one! ) and yellow ankle pants from Loft (thinking of buying these ones!!! I’m in lovve with the black ones too! ). Since my pants can be spotted from a mile away, I decided to mellow the look by wearing a grey blouse with white collars. Any button down with white detailing/collars is an eye catcher for me! My snakeskin belt and shoes are from C. Wonder. I looveeeee C. Wonder! It’s designed by Chris Burch (Tory Burch’s former husband) and so much more affordable than Tory Burch. And let me just tell you, when there’s a sale at C.Wonder, there is a SALE! Take additional 50% off¬†sale jewelry and additonal 30% off sale apparel TODAY! Thank me by following and liking my post! ūüôā

Few Announcements:

1. I will be posting my haul and GIVEAWAY video TONIGHT! Be sure to READ the blog post, as you will find instructions on how to win the 3 items offered.

2. A few have asked about the Health & Fitness page. I will surely keep you updated by this weekend. I’m still in the process of note-taking, compiling my thoughts, and organizing my ideas. It won’t necessarily be an advisory page but more so an inspirational one. Because let’s just face it, I missed the fashion runway AND the workout runway. So I’m thinking it’ll be an inclusive fitness & healthy living diary. Thoughts?

-Be blessed.

Risky Business

Good Morning! NYC is going to be a whooping 60 degrees today! I decided to go a little risky (risque lol) and wear a light, chiffon-material dress that I scored for $10 at Ross Department Store last year. I picked up these lovely t-strap heels on sale from Zara and you should be familiar with my J.Crew pearls  by now! Get 25% off now with the code HAPPYSHOPPING! Love to all!

Good Morning! I wore this striped cropped top from H&M (very sad I can’t find it online for you! But It’s def in stores), paired with my Forever 21¬†polka dot pencil skirt¬†¬†and Joe Fresh flats. Just to keep it on the professional side, I threw on my handy dandy TopShop blazer. Enjoy your week!

Sunday’s Best: Horizontally Worn Dress

Poncho: Vintage // Bag: JustFab // Dress: MMM x H&M // Shoes: Zara

Among all the weird clothes I buy, I must say I’m most proud of this dress. When I saw this Maison Martin Margiela¬†dress at H&M, I was very confused to say the least. Because of it’s intricacy¬†I was curious to see how it would look on me. I googled the name of the dress and saw it on a model. My mental response, “WOW! I need this!” If I could explain the dress to you-¬†this is simple vertical dress with ANOTHER button down dress attached horizontally to it. It appears to look like a cape but oh no hunny, it’s a dress! LOL. After what seemed about 35 minutes of getting the dress on in the fitting room, it didn’t take long for me to decide that it would come home! My shoes are no stranger to most fashionistas. These Zara strappy heels were all over the street runway during the Spring/Summer seasons. I’m just glad I was able to get my hand on a pair when I did! Would you believe me if I told you I wore these shoes from the Bronx –> 14th street–> 5th ave–> back to Lexington?
