Leopard print by far is my favorite print. I love the sexiness, edginess and daringness that the print embodies when you walk into a room. That is why, when I saw this shirt on sale at H&M, I knew I had to have it because it is such a simple shirt that can make any outfit pop. The other reason why I purchased it? It was only $7.00 ! I kept things pretty simple and neutral with this outfit. I wore a pair of black pants, a black coat, a gold purse and white heels for that pop of color. I love how these shoes have that gold chain on the shoe. It gives that simple white heel that extra oomph.

I am finally back in town and on my computer! Yay! Life without the internet is hard people!!! Ok, I’m done with the exclamation points. I am happy that I am back in the comfort of my home but sadly I am not 100% settled in. I have to unpack ( I did some serious shopping at the Outlet Malls) and do some serious catching up on school work. Today’s outfit is simple and to the point. I wore denim on denim today and added a bit of chic by wearing gold accents ( shoes, watch etc…).What I love about this outfit is that it is simple and chic – this is definitely one of those laid back easy going outfits.

It has been very cold in South Florida ! I mean, like HIGH of 51 degrees ( low of 37) where I am currently posting from ( Orlando, FL) and that is unusual for this part of the Southern State. I am currently at my in-law’s and this happened to be the weekend that they are switching over from Internet providers so I had to use the internet the good ol’ fashion way. Now, this isn’t your local McDonalds or Starbucks because come to find out their internet is very very slow. Nope, I had to come to the library! Do those even exist anymore?! Yes, they do people, lol! So here I am at the library using the internet because apparently my in-laws are currently living the dark ages. Oh, thee how I miss the convenience of wi-fi.
We are here for a few days and when I travel, I always check the weather ( especially this time of the year) to make sure that I pack the appropriate clothes for the weather. Thankfully I packed warm sweaters because it is cold and if you are familiar with Orlando malls, they are mostly outdoors. I am actually wearing a repeat sweater that did a post on a few months back. This time around I am wearing my sweater with a pair of black pants, black boots and a grey jacket. I do have another much larger coat with me because lord knows it will get cold later on tonight.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
Valentine’s Day happens to be one of my favorite “holidays”; and I say “holiday” because we all know that it has become be to known as a corporate holiday. I knew that this year I wanted to wear a red dress so I searched the internet for the perfect red dress. I like the dresses that H&M had to offer so I went to the store and tried on every single red dress they had in store. After I spent about 40 minutes in the fitting room I had narrowed it down to this red ( the one shown) dress or this one. I loved how red flared dress looked on the rack but when I put it on….OH NO! The dress looked horrible and let’s just say the sizing was WAAAAYYYY off.
Once I selected my dress I knew that I wanted to wear pink accessories. I bought these amazing pink shoes from Poshmark ( an app that lets you sell your clothes!) and I matched it with this gorgeous clutch I bought at goodwill for $2.50. I was really going for the sweet romantic look and I think I nailed it. The weather that night was unseasonable cold so I was able to show off my wonderful beige ( $1.00) coat.

Option #2 – To bad the fit was less than pleasant.
Crop top and mini’s are all the rave and everyone is wearing them. However, the most common way to wear them is by having the matching top and bottom. I remixed my look by pairing my tweed crop top with a (faux) leather mini skirt. What a better way to pair two winter classics. I kept this look extra simple by simply wearing my leather booties and a cool pair of sunglasses.

When in doubt, wear neutrals. That is the rule I have made for myself when I have absolutely no idea what to wear and just want to rush out the door. My second rule? When in doubt, wear a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. This could be any t-shirt and jeans really. Finally, my last rule: when in doubt, wear heels and a jacket ( just in case it gets chilly). Of course, if you are going somewhere extremely casual then wear comfy shoes but do take your jacket. This is a simple look that can be pulled off any day really. It requires minimal effort, its simple and it doesn’t look like you tried too hard, which in my case, I didn’t.
The jeans I bought at the Gap last year and it is their boyfriend jeans. I did not buy them ripped like that actually. What really happened is I have the biggest tights and knees. Whenever, I bend or crouch down the small tear that they had turned into a huge tear. Luckily, I don’t care so I think they accidentally turned out pretty well. I paired the jeans with a simple tank, a jacket and these gorgeous heels I scored at Steve Madden two weeks ago for $19.99. Lucky girl. The purse happens to be my favorite. I bought it a thrift store for $2.00.
