The Love Be-'LO

A refined man wears Polo. Thats what I've learned in all my years growing up.  My dad, as a mature gentleman, indulges in Ralph Lauren.  It speaks with such sophistication when a man can wear a simple button down coupled with a pair of chinos and still look classy.

Plaid in Burgundy

I wont lie.  I don't EVER wear heels, unless it's with a dress. I mean,  for pictures sake, yes, I'll throw on a pair of heels that will go with my outfit, but best believe I have a pair of flats right next to me.

We went to go see The Equalizer, you know, that movie with Denzel. It was so good!  Worth the $25 movie tickets... lol
Any-who, here is what I wore.

Denim on Denim

Was never big on the whole "jean on jean" look.  It just seemed so "bleh."  I've seen so many variations of this look, and to be blunt, it just seemed over-done.  I'm so super picky when it comes to wearing color over color.  Like black.  I HATE wearing "black on black" because it's never the right two shades of black.   I think it looks cleaner if you're wearing the same color ontop of the other when it's uniform or, a blatant mismatch of the same color.  For example, if I where to repeat this outfit but with a different shirt, I would wear it with an exaggerated lighter denim shirt so it can have some contrast.  It won't look like I tried too hard to match the colors. 

As much as I doubted, I said to myself, "self, try it. If you don't like it, you can always take it off." Well, I went with it, and I liked it... Obvi.

T-shirt & Jeans Kinda Sunday

Supermarket haul, laundry dash, pre-Monday blues .. I mean, where has the weekend gone? When I was 10, I'd wake up bright an early on a Saturday, get in my fix of pretty much every single cartoon my eyes could watch (i still do this...) and Sunday's I'd sleep in until my mom had to yank me out of bed with a crane.  Fast Forward 20 years... "grown woman bills" and an adult life.  I can barely catch 5 healthy hours of sleep, let alone staying in bed all day.
All hail those lazy Sundays... right?

Wrap Jumpsuit

Wasn't too crazy about this Wrap Jumpsuit, but I wore it anyway (obviously, lol)... there's ruching in the mid-bodice that I wasn't too fond of, so I hid it with a belt.

I also tried to do something different with my makeup... I don't usually wear that much makeup since I don't really know how to apply foundation and contour or whatever else they put on your face, but I DO LOVE eye-shadow and my obsession with lip-gloss is oh so real! and YES my lashes are real.

Little Black Romper

Pictures are a little blurry... it' was actually pouring and SUPER humid outside today. I curled my hair and by the time I stepped outside, they dropped (story of my life)... We're on our way to a farewell party.  Sometimes when the invitation doesn't specify a dress code,  it's hard to tell whether or not you should be over-dressed or under-dressed.  My theory is that there really is no such thing as someone who is over-dressed, however, and I repeat: HOWEVER, there IS such a thing as being under-dressed. Well, because I wasn't sure of what direction to go in, I wore this simple black jumpsuit.  I paired it with some heels and a clutch.

There's a saying: “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black...”

                       I never wear black, but when I do. .. I make sure it's clean and crisp.
