My Who What Wear x Target Collection Dress

danielleOutfits-5 smaller

I’ve been on a HUGE clothes shopping hiatus. Well, at least it seemed huge to me…lol. I’m guessing the 2016 election results hit me harder than I thought because I gained back the weight I lost AND I had ZERO budget to buy new clothes. Most of my cute stuff is feeling a bit smedium so I’ve been really creative when it comes to getting dressed. I did allow myself a few purchases though—one of which is this dress from the Who What Wear collection from Target.

NO clue why I’m in such a rush, but I’ve been thinking about fall fashion HEAVILY lately. I’ve been browsing through 80s NYC street style photos from famed photographer Jamel Shabazz (I’m even going to his exhibit at the Studio Museum—thanks to Monroe Steele‘s Harlem Guide post) and getting SUPER inspired for my fall wardrobe. If I had to summarize my fall style aesthetic in a few words, it would be “I don’t really have much money right now, but I’m still gonna be outchea.”

Wear this to Work Tomorrow: Summer Vibes

Happy Wear to Work Wednesday, ya’ll!

Summer can be a little interesting to dress for in some office spaces. Your office might institute a summer casual policy, but that certainly doesn’t mean you can get all lax with the dress code.

(Sidenote: over a decade ago I worked at an investment company and was interviewing applicants for an assistant position and one girl rolled through with flip-flops on. If only I had this blog back then…lol)

Yes, I know Wednesdays are supposed to be Wear to Work Wednesdays (and if I have time before I need to get dressed and go to a makeup event in Manhattan, I’ll post a look), but lately I’ve been busy with a few projects (thank you LORD because this year was starting to look a little bleak…lol) and my posting schedule has been a bit off. Part of it has to do with my new way of blogging which has meant WAY more content features like video demos and more but has also meant fewer posts because I can only churn out quality content every so often. But there’s a lot more exciting makeup reviews and swatches coming soon so make sure you’re subscribed to the blog so you don’t miss a thing. I also have my 14 year old nephew visiting me from Georgia for a few weeks so I’ve been juggling a lot with taking him places and what not.

CUTE Flat Sandals for Summer that MIGHT Be Comfy!

So many amazing things happen once you hit south of 30: you start to care less and less about what other people think, your confidence levels soar, you feel more secure in your adulthood. But some other things happen that may not be so amazing: facial hair, BILLS, and ohmygoodness ACHES and PAINS. Every morning I wake up and cringe in the bed for like two minutes thinking of what’s going to ache today. Perhaps it’s just me because I also got injured in an accident in my 20s, but my goodness why must things hurt so often…lol.

Happy Wear to Work Wednesday, ya’ll!

This week’s Fashion at Work outfit inspiration takes something as simple as a solid shift (or sheath!) dress and elevates it with FAB accessories. One thing I think almost every wardrobe needs is a stylish wide belt—even if you don’t wind up wearing it often you’ll find some outfit that needs it. Hence this week’s look!
