Sunday Social: The Jackleen Dress








I have to start out by saying “what a powerful word” we had in church this morning.          Exodus 2:11-15 “The Moses Predicament”

Let’s talk about today’s outfit. You know when you’re out browsing and you run across a dress you don’t like but for some reason you keep going back and you had to try it on. Well! That was me, meet “Jackleen”… After trying it on I was in LOVE. I can’t quite put my finger on just one thing I like about it; the butterfly sleeves, ruffled hem, fabric, etc.

This dress has endless possibilities. It can be styled with flats, a floppy hat, even pearls. Not sure how I will style it the next time I wear it. I will be sure to let you know.

I’m thinking I kept the accessories to a minimum, did I really? The FUN ACCESSORY this week: my Cigar Box Purse. It’s old, I’ve had it for many years, so many that I forgot all about it. I found it a few weeks ago, boy was I excited! Isn’t she cute? That’s it for today, see you next time XO…

There is BEAUTI in everything, find it…

Sunday Social: Midnight Paris








Happy Rainy Sunday… Each Sunday I journey into my closet and see all the wonderful dresses I’ve yet to wear. Some two or more years old like today’s dress. I was so happy this one fit 😉 Been wanting to wear it for a while now.
I think I made a good choice in today’s outfit. Midnight black dress with pink Eiffel Towers,  flared skirt and a slight high-low hemline. “I wonder if it’s raining in Paris” I added a pink belt to give me a waistline. I could have titled this one “fun and flirty”
This was a great opportunity to wear PINK shoes! How often do I get to do that…? I could have easily worn black shoes but I wanted to keep the color going right down to my feet. I added the normal accessories: colorful drop earrings, bangles and a tiered necklace. I didn’t forget the bag the BAG, this multicolored faux snake skin was just the one.   I love my bags…

Sunday Social: Polka Dot Culottes










Hello again!  Today was a play on dots, huge ones LOL…  I attempted to wear these culottes last week but I just couldn’t get it together.  So I thought I would give it another try today.  Believe it or not this particular pair has a variety of styling options ( I think that was my problem, too many options).  I could have added a white blazer or went super casual with flats and a tank top.  I decided on this very feminine sleeveless V-neck top and of course platform heels 😉 .
Style Tip: In addition to what I mentioned above.  This Winter I will pair an oversized white sweater and gray suede boots.
Today’s outfit was a great opportunity to accessorize!  This necklace yall, this NECKLACE! “I LOVE IT” it fits perfectly with my v- neck top. As for shoes, I’ve always found it very difficult to find a white shoe that I really like.  I purchased these last year. They gave me the lift I wanted 🙂 I added a few more basic accessories: earrings, my watch which had a little bit of bling and my all time favorite “glass bracelets” (I’m addicted to the noise they make).  Lastly, you know me and my BAGS, I was really torn but this beauty won out… so chic!

Sunday Social: Simple Tribal Print











Blessed for another Sunday!  You know sometimes you have one of those days where nothing seems to fit or doesn’t look right.  Well today was one of those days.  Let’s just say I have some work to do 😉 .

On the flipside of all that madness…. You know its good when you can grab a dress from your closet and all you really need to do is add shoes.  This is basically all I did, “added shoes” LOL…  This black and white tribal print long dress with side slits took NO EFFORT to style.  And after the way my morning started its a good thing.  This dress is so simple. I didn’t need a necklace, the embellished neck was enough.  Since a girl needs to wear some kind of jewelry, I kept it simple by adding earrings of course, watch, understated bangles, rings (one with a pop of color) and a RED LIP

Style Tip: No matter how “Simple or Understated” it’s all fashion
