Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all are adjusting to the cold front. Finally, the weather is cooling down. When the morning temperatures dip down Ito the thirties but the highs are in the seventies, dressing for the day becomes difficult. The recent spells of rain have brought in really fall/ winter weather. As the season transitions from fall to winter, so must my wardrobe. Originally, I started this blog to showcase my workplace style. While my interests have expanded, my goal nonetheless is still to find pieces that can be restyled for many occasions.
The high-low styled shirt dress was on sale for $15.99 in a 22/24. I can wear it with leather pants, booties and a statement necklace or dress it down with jeans, leggings, and boots. I am a petite plus size woman so I still have big issues with length. The back might trip me up so I’ll belt it if necessary.
I love this piece! I can wear a black tank and a midi skirt with heeled booties for a work look. A black body con dress could provide me with an after 5, happy hour look. A grey tshirt, ripped grey or black jeans and combat boots would provide me with an edgy look. Actually, I like how the piece looks with the grey high- low.
For some reason, this duster did not look the least bit appealing on the hanger. I kept walking past it and finally decided to give it a try. This deep red color is perfect for fall and winter. My congac brown lipstick paired nicely with the deep hue.
This cape is bomb! I feel like such a regal, superwoman when I dawn capes. Capes are so elegant and fun. This pattern is so me. A leather skirt, pants, body con midi skirt, dress, leggings, and jeans would look nice with this cape. For a classic look, if wear a button down shirt, medium wash denim, and thigh high black boots.
Sometimes I feel the pressure to be “on” all of the time. There’s no shame in tocking sweats, slippers, and a tshirt! I did just that yesterday. I dress down too. Check out my Berea sweats! I’m surprised my fat thighs are still squeezing in them! I just want people to know that I’m human. I feel pressured to look pretty all of the time. It stresses me out. Jazmin Sullivan’s song Mascara always pops into my head. It’s like “I’ve got to stay on.” Remaining “on” or attempting to maintain a certain look can be draining. Just know that if you see me on the weekends, I won’t always be dolled up.
