I love the versatility that comes with jumpsuits. Let’s not mistake them for the spandex catsuits that everyone seems to be wearing now (especially with the sheer panels). Jumpsuits can be worn day or night. For work I would pair with a blazer and a pair of pumps. For the night time just switch up the accessories and the shoes and you are ready for some fun. Here are five jumpsuits that I fell in love with that would make great additions to anyone’s wardrobe. You have a mix of bright colors, patterns (I really love the African inspired jumpsuit) and textures.

Style Tip: Wear a belt to create a more defined waist when wearing a jumpsuit

Happy Tuesday  my loves! It’s been a while since I have done a What I Wore post, so I know this is long over due. It was a pretty nice day on Sunday and I was in the mood to wear a dress to church. As I was looking through my closet I noticed a dress that my brother bought for me when he was in Spain last year. I never wore the dress because I didn’t get it until December…smh…and it was just too cold.

The dress is a simple and very comfortable. It is a peach tank dress with a mint green belt. I paired it with and Olivia & Joy Handbag and my favorite pumps of the moment (Prabal Gurung for Target). I put on a lace cardigan because it can get really chilly at church.

As you can see I also switched up the hair do for the summer. I’ve been doing a lot of protective styling lately and this is just the latest installment lol. I chose box braids because they are easy to maintain. I didn’t want to keep my weave because it is just too hot. I wanted my braids to be a shorter length, but the woman who did my hair said it wouldn’t work because of my natural hair length, so I had to go long.

So here’s one final look

The warm weather is finally starting to break and you know what that mean…it is time to break out the sandals. Our fresh pedicures do not have to be hidden any longer. So I’ve compiled a list of great sandals to rock during the summer. Whether you want an ankle strap heel, multi-color wedge, or a t-strap flat, I’ve got you covered. Check out the options below.

This Summer is all about statement bags.  Whether you go for bright colors, bold prints or color blocked handbags let your bag do all the talking.

Statement bags are great because they can really add that “oomph” to a look that is plain or lacking color as well as add an unexpected and fun element to whatever you are rockin’.

The great news is your bag does NOT have to match your outfit so you can cross off all the “do not mix colors and print” rules and LIVE!

Check out some of my favorites below!
