TBT: Layering Summer Clothes for Fall Wear

Hey guys!! I haven’t participated in a Throw Back Thursday in a while and since I have a video on YouTube that I uploaded a while ago I decided to share it here on the blog… If you’re still packing up your summer clothes to put away when fall rolls around you definitely NEED to see this! Lol. Layering is the solution!! Watch, Enjoy, and the details will be below.

Okay so…

The dress, as stated in the vid, was one of the things I featured in my first Haul video on YouTube and is from Urban Outfitters.

The Sleeveless cardigan was also purchased at Urban Outfitter’s. (It originally had sleeves that I cut off)

The 3/4 length shirt is from GAP;

and the boots were purchased at a little Boutique on Magazine St here in New Orleans.

 

Oh, By the way… If you’d like to see that Haul video the link is http://youtu.be/DYmS1Y2OvI0

Finally Fall OOTD

I’m so excited!! Up until a few days ago I thought Fall would be non existent this year in New Orleans but Saturday it cooled off… I wasn’t real shocked because for a few weeks now the weather has been up, down, and all over the place but I woke up Sunday morning to perfect weather. It’s not quite cool enough yet for hats, scarves, gloves, and the whole sha-bang but I have began to wear heavier fabrics while I wait on a further decrease in temp and it is show cased here in my first outfit of the day this season… Enjoy!

 

Here are the details…

Navy blue striped top- NORDSTROM
Wool Floral skirt- BLOOMIN’DEALS THRIFT SHOP (Originally Saks Fifth Ave. only $6!!)

Cognac Wedge Heels- STEVE MADDEN GABBY

Cognac bag- FOREVER21
Belt- FOREVER21

I am not positive on where the rings were purchased… Probably Urban Outfitters or FOREVER21 tho.

Look forward to more Fall OOTD’s from me… It’s my favorite season because there’s so many possibilities for fashion with all of the cute accessories you can add! Subscribe to my blog and my YOUTUBE channel as well… I’m coming up on my 1 YR Anniversary with this blog and I PROMISE you won’t want to miss some of the contests and prizes I’ve got in mind!! MUAH, JNB

Oh, and shot out to the best BFF in the www for taking the pics… “That girl got a good eye…”

Walks, talks, inspiration, & an OOTD… A day with me.

Hello! I’ve been super busy with SUPER exciting things but I have managed to FINALLY put together a 3 part post that I filmed about 2 weeks ago.

First up is some randomness straight from my mind as I walk. I’m sure I got some crazy stares but sometimes I have thoughts or even conversations with myself (no shame here! Lol) that I know others may be able to benefit from and since inspiration and growth are the main goal here- I don’t mind looking crazy if something positive will be gained. Here goes…

No more hindering growth! It’s so easy to become comfortable or “stuck in your ways” but let’s try to challenge ourselves and create growth. It’s so worth it!

So, while I was recording that I was strolling through the French Quarter on my way to an AWESOME experience I invited myself to and was welcomed with open arms… Most of the scenario is explained in the vid but I will say that I was SO excited! It’s great when you feel like you’re in a place where God wants you to be and I can say that about this entire experience!  It was great! And everyone I crossed paths with due to this was a blessing in my life that day. Watch, enjoy, and hopefully you’ll gain something from it…

I had such an amazing time that morning!! I hope you enjoyed it as well but trust me this lil 8 minute video isn’t nearly as great as it was to have been there! Your scars can really serve as a testimony if you allow God to use you the way he wants to… The suffering and pain you go through would all be in vain if you don’t expose how you came out victorious… Now, of course everything ain’t for everybody to know… Some people are just being nosy or messy or may even try to use your scars and your past against you so pray for discernment and God will let you know what to share with who and if the information will be helpful to them.

Lastly… I decided to go ahead and do an OOTD… Since it was SO hot outside and we were a few weeks into fall I included this vid in my series “Summer, Where you goin?” It’s very, VERY simple but I hope you’ll check it out anyway and let me know what you think…

I told you it was simple! Here are the details tho…

* the TANK TOP is from a 5 pack of Hanes Ribbed Cotton Tanks : )

* the SHORTS began life as pants and are from Forever21

* the PLAID SHIRT is from Urban Outfitters… It’s by BDG

* the necklace is from H&M, ring is Forever21, and the bracelet was a gift!

*and the shoes… MY FAVORITE SHOES… are Chucks from Urban Outfitters.

And yes, I am responsible for the art work all over them. Lol

Simplicity is almost on its way out the door because the breeze is getting a little cooler everyday and I cant wait to do some fun Fall OOTD’s! Stay tuned…

Thanks so much for watching my videos!! I really appreciate it…. Feel free to comment. MUAH!

Summer, where you goin?

Summertime is technically over, but here in New Orleans we’ve got a few more days of Summer weather before we can pull out the scarves, hats, and boots without looking cray cray. My last few Summer outfits will be documented in a series and the video below is the first to come. Enjoy!

As mentioned in the vid, in the Fall I LIVE for accessories! Bags, boots, scarves, hats, gloves are what I’m all about when Fall hits but for Summer I like to keep it simple. I rarely have a bag or even any accessories… This is an uber simple Summer look that anyone- any shape, size, or age can easily pull off.
Here are the deets:
Gray and White striped tank- Urban Outfitters
BDG High Waist jeans- Urban Outfitters
Vines ring and bracelet- Forever21
Sandals-Urban Outfitters
Hope you like the look!! There’s more to come so stay tuned… MUAH!

Casual Sunday OOTD

Hello My loves!! As promised, I’m trying my hardest to remember to post OOTD pics when I wear the things featured in my haul video!

image

This was just yesterday… Headed out to Church and the beginning of a very exciting, very EXHAUSTING family day.

image

As mentioned in the video (VISIT MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE!!) the shirt is Forever 21, the shoes are Zara, and although they weren’t featured in the vid, I got these fabulous jeans from Urban Outfitters. The shoes weren’t as comfy as they could have been because of the ankle strap so it will definitely take a few times to break them in. Here are some other views…

image

As you can see (and I’m actually just realizing) I have ZERO accessories on but then again, my bible did match my shoes and that smile I’m wearing is something serious! Let me know what you think of this outfit in the comments and if you’re not already following go ahead and make it happen! Good day Hun…

Contest Turban is finally here!!

Many of you have watched my “Early Summer OOTD” video on YouTube where I first mention the Turban Contest… Well, IT’S FINALLY HERE!!

contest turban

Like the other contest I’ve had before, its quite simple! By now it’s no secret that more than half the time I have on a turban its not really a turban! I grab things… all sorts of things and wrap them around my head to make it a turban. That’s what this contest is all about. Look at the pictures above and comment telling me what item (skirt, shirt, tablecloth, etc…) I have wrapped around my head. Whomever wins will receive a gift card to the place where I purchased the item!! I will reveal the winner later this week on video and if more than one of you guesses the same item I will pick names from a bag! If you need a better view be sure to look at my post on it. (It’s on the Home page… “Early Summer OOTD) Go!
