Happy Sunday my loves!  Today’s look is all about subtle, yet bold details!  I love FRINGE so whenever I can incorporate it into a look, I go for it!  This sweater, from Kouture Styles, is so soft and super warm!  It’s the perfect sweater for this weird weather transition Chicago is having from Winter to Spring.  I decided to pair it with these super cute mom jeans and these nude patent leather sandal heels that I got for…wait for it…

Heyyy CLO Friends! Anybody else loving plaid right about now other than me?  A cute plaid piece can turn up a rather simplistic outfit with little to no effort at all! Today’s look is a rather simplistic, yet cute unitard paired with a plaid duster and some cute patent leather booties (another material I am currently obsessing over!!!) Put them all together and just like that my outfit is POPPING!…OK?

Happy Easter CLO Friends!  I feel blessed to see another Easter and am feeling so grateful and full this Easter Sunday.  I feel grateful that God has blessed me with this amazing partner in life and that I have such awesome family and friends that surround me.  Easter always makes me assess where I am so far in the year and it’s a day where I like to evaluate the goals that I wish to accomplish later on in the year.  I’m excited to say that I have some amazing things cooking up for the remainder of this year, the first thing being

Okay so let’s just have a moment of silence for the fact that Spring has finally arrived!  I’m super excited because that means my ‘birffday’ is also on coming up!…And I can’t wait!  Now, you all know I love me a good, simple slay!  All you need in order to achieve such is a good pair of jeans that fit your curves just right, a bomb jacket (doesn’t really matter the type), and some cute, chic shades and BOOM, you’re fly!

I know I’m not the only one who has a love/hate relationship with jeans.  It’s like while on one hand they’re super casual and easy to pair with items, on the other hand they’re pretty uncomfortable to me.  What’s a girl to do?!  The older I get, the more comfortability is important to me.  So I heard about FashionNova jeans and of course I was very much skeptical about them because you can’t trust every online boutique you come across online…you know?  But…

Motivation Mondays!  We’re talking goals on the blog today!  What are your summer goals?  Lord knows I have a lot of them, and I plan to achieve as many of them as I can!  One big goal I have is eating healthy and maintaining a healthy weight.  In order to achieve this goal I’ve been meal prepping (if you know me, this is such a big deal!) and working out (another BIG deal!).  I’ve been meal prepping my meals Monday-Friday and it has been truly empowering!  It feels liberating to eat healthy most of the time…who would have known?! Lol This is a judgement free zone so please don’t judge me! Haha!  Now to this look…!

“The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them.  If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.”

This past weekend was amazinggggg!  I had the awesome opportunity to be around hundreds of beautiful, black, powerful women at Blavity’s EmpowerHer event!  It was really life changing to be in the room with such intelligent, successful women!  It gave me my life ok?!  So I wanted to begin with this quote because it’s imperative for us to dream and make goals as big as we can…because if you put enough work in…you just might achieve them!

Now to this look, baseball cap and curly hair, who knew it would make the perfect combination?!
