Trousers + Trainers

If you’re an 80’s baby like me then you remember growing up and seeing women, possibly even your mom, walking the streets in business attire and sneakers. I’m talking full on power suits paired with scrunchy socks and Reebok Classics. Nothing says “I’m a working mom” like a Clinton pant suit with a pair of LA Gears.

Today’s look isn’t nearly as dramatic but consider it a nod to my childhood because I’m wearing a pair of my designated work pants with my favorite weekend sneakers. I admit these geometric print trousers are usually worn with a button down and a stiletto but let’s face it – that gets very boring.

As you know, I’m always looking for new ways to style a sweatshirt so this pastel pink was the perfect addition. A bold necklace and cat eye sunnies mean I’m out the door and ready for work. This is the perfect hump day/ I have horrible cramps/ I’ll be eating carbs and comfort food ensemble lol.

So what do you think, did our moms do it better?

Houndstooth + Leather

How do you begin your birthday week? You do it in style, of course! No case of the Monday’s here boo, I’m feeling just fine. So fine I grabbed my favorite wrap to slay my day.

This houndstooth wrap is one size fits all and has a faux leather trim. It’s actually pretty warm, making this a great alternative from your usual outerwear. I have yet to figure out how to wear it as a skirt but when I do I’ll be sure to post my results.

I decided to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple. A crisp white turtlenck is always chic and pairs perfectly with the wrap. Black faux leather skinnies instantly add a certain edge to the entire look while the classic black stilettos add sophistication.


The heels on my shoes and my bright orange lipstick add a pop of color to the ensemble. Just the right amount of sexy and sophistication…this is gonna be a great week!

Monochrome + Texture

Happy Tuesday loves!

We’re in the second week of the new year and I pray things are starting well for you all. Lately I’ve really been into chunky knits and suede. These are winter staples that always deliver both style and functionality, perfect go tos for any chic woman. Today’s look features one of the warmest items in my wardrobe, this cable knit sweater dress. I’ve paired it with sparkly tights and suede heels to add dimension to the overall monochromatic look. Stay chic and stay warm loves!
