The weather is slowly going back in to the 30s and 40s (boo). Until Spring officially arrives all we can do is think of all of the amazing looks we can put together. So today I have a formula for a full proof simple and chic look featuring singer and actress Naturi Naughton. Check it out with item details below.

I love that she went with a high bun so that you can see her features and kept her makeup light and natural.

I will be returning to work in a few weeks *insert sad face :( * and I have been looking for inspiration to take my professional look up a notch. I love wearing skirts but I’ve always kept it safe with some of my work attire. We do not have a strict dress code, so I can wear pretty much anything I want (of course it will be work appropriate) but I want to go beyond my black, navy, and tweed pencil skirts. So Keke Palmer’s look is exactly what I need.

I love the pop of color with the skirt and I also love the fact that she didn’t play it safe with a solid color shirt. The print takes this look to a new level of sophistication. It was paired perfectly with nude pumps as well. Kudos to Keke and her stylist they nailed this look!

You can get a similar look with the items below.

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends so this weekend was just magnificent. I started off by attending church on Good Friday after some shopping with my mom and niece. Saturday, more shopping this time with my sister and then Sunday church, breakfast, and dinner with the fam. So for my look for this Easter I wanted something bright and fun and of course with prints. So this is the look I put together

 I love this skirt! It has to be one of the most comfortable things that I have ever worn. It flows really nicely and feels so soft against my skin. If they had other colors I would have definitely purchased them. The color is perfect for spring/summer as well. You will definitely see this outfit again lol and more of this skirt for the next two seasons.

 

What I Wore

Top: I went to a fashion show last year and was able to pull a few items from the show for only $10. I just forgot the designer’s name (sorry) The top is really a dress that’s worn as a shirt. I believe in getting total use out of all garments

Skirt: Columbia Green pleated midi skirt by Bisou Bisou at jc penney only $25! Click here to purchase

Shoes: Nude pumps from Guess

Earrings: Forever 21 (purchased 2 years ago)

Watch: New York and Co.

Sungalsses: H&M

Bracelet: Handmade (my mom had one on and I loved it. I tried to take hers but that didn’t work so I had her purchase one for me from a co-worker)

We are approximately one week away from Spring! I am super excited. Last week Thursday was just a teaser and this week, will just be heavenly! My spring season started yesterday lol. I pulled out one of the hottest trends for Spring, bright colored jeans, and paired it with two of my favorite classic items, nude pumps and animal print. Check out the look

What I Wore:

Canyon River Blues Skinny Jeans

Leopard Print Cardigan

H & M Tank Top

Nude Pumps by Guess

And yes I changed my hair again :-) I took out my twist. I opted for a curly do. If you remember I did an asymmetrial cut last year and I am in the process of letting my left side grow back. So I am doing a lot of protective hair styles to help with the growth.

Last week I had a test shoot with a photographer. I want to incorporate more photos of my personal style and thought why not get a real photographer to capture my true beauty lol. Anyway here are some of the photos from the test shoot.

Keep in mind this is my first shoot in like 3 years. I am used to my one pose with my hand on my hip so bare with me while I try new things lol.
