Happy 57th Independence to allll my Ghanaians!!!!! I can daydream all day about the being on Labodi Beach having pineapples but that wouldn’t change the reality of the situation: the only water I’m around is the Hudson River. Hey at least it overlooks the midtown & downtown skylines of NYC. Today I wore this beautiful H&M jacket with a leather peplum and a black skirt. These Me Too boots have been featured on the blog in the past but they are actually a new pair that I just ordered from Amazon. Yes. That’s how much I love them!M necklace is from Primark. Sorry Americans. We haven’t been blessed with Primark….yet.

Today at work, I was told “You always look so beautiful. Do you go on dates after work?” She doesn’t even realize the impact of her statement. I haven’t really been myself this week but her statment reassured me that I should really let go of negativiity and appreciate how beautiful I am! Please compliment someone and uplift their spirits today! You never know the impact it might have.

-Be blessed.

What I Wore to Work: the Suit

Suit: Banana Republic // Blouse: Talbots // Shoes: Lanvin

Just getting my last wears on this suit before the weather breaks… If it ever does break. In lieu of the Banana Republic Family & Friends discount that I just received from a friend, I decided to wear the suit I got for 50% off last year.  This time around, I paired this tartan or plaid suit with an orange Talbots blouse just to play on the color blocking trend. And it couldn’t be a work outfit, if I wasn’t wearing a pair of shoes that resides overnight in my cubicle lol.

Stay tuned for TWO shopping haul videos that will be uploaded this week!

Good Morning! I just want to say thank you to all the people who follow, like, look and/or comment on my blog. Even though it’s only been a few months since the launch, I see a great change in my life. I’m more daring and conscious of what I wear and just the continuing support gives me so much confidence. I know bloggers do Giveaways after receiving 500+ followers, but I’m so ready to honor you all now. It’s not much but it comes from the heart and I think it’s far more rewarding than material things:

Every morning, I get in the office about 30 min early and have breakfast. My breakfast consists of a banana almond smoothie and/or a bowl of fruit with coffee. Then I read my post-its which contain scriptures or powerful statements that serve as encouragement. My coffee mug reads “LAUGH- Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart’s desire. -Psalm 37:4.” And that’s my gift to you today! Enjoy life, laugh and take delight in the Lord!

What I Wore to Work: Polka Dots

Good Morning. Today I wanted to be a little bold and “tip on the tightrope” by wearing polka dots to work. I’m wearing this Joe Fresh Denim jacket over a Loft Peplum Blouse and Loft pleaded skirt. Don’t ever be afraid to mix and match different size polka dots or prints. My shoes are Lanvin.

Stay tuned for my $100 Budget Shopping Haul video which will be uploaded this week.

What I Wore to Work: Leopard Booties

For the first time since I purchased the iPhone 5s back in November, I used the panoramic setting on the camera. Below is a pic I took on the PATH train. (Don’t be confursed this isn’t an MTA train during rush hour.) Why didn’t anyone inform me on this secret? Haha

It’s Fridayyyyy! I wore this Madewell Denim Shirt, Levi Jeans, and Aldo Booties that are on sale now! I’d recommend them if they were comfortable but they’re not, sooooo it’s up to you! They run small so get 1/2- a size up from your normal size. There’s a very weird 1 inch platform on the bottom of the sole. Does anyone know if a cobbler could detach the platform without destroying the shoe? I think that’ll be the solution to these very uncomfortable booties.

– Be blessed & enjoy your weekend.
