Silver & Gold

Merry Christmas, all! I hope your holiday was full of good food, hilarious family, amazing music and unforgettable presents. Mine sure was. I didn’t leave school until the 24th, so I was overjoyed to finally be home. And I thought I would share what I wore on this particularly holy night. My outfit was simple, comfortable and festive all at once. And I paired this natural style (a day-old, pinned-up, bantu knot-out) with red lips. I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas. (more…)

Baby, It’s Code

On this particularly gloomy day, I thought it best to rock some cool tones. This velveteen blazer is one of my favorite thrift store finds ever, because I love the deep violet color and plush fabric. And it fits me like a glove. I layered the blazer over a simple white shirt from Target, with knit paneling at the collar. The dark jeans are from Old Navy. For jewelry, I opted for my favorite silver necklace (H&M) and a simple silver watch (Nordstrom).

When it comes to job interviews, choosing an outfit can be tricky. It’s hard to know just how dressed up, or dressed down, to get. With this outfit, I tried to straddle the fence. I know the old saying goes, “You can never be overdressed or over-educated,” but I’ve shown up to many a casual interview in business professional attire and felt like a clown. So I tried to plan ahead by pairing some dark jeans with a black button-up. Deep, indigo-hued denim tends to appear more gussied up than light washes. And buttoned blouses transition perfectly from office to everyday wear. To add another touch of professionalism to my look, I added this tangerine-colored blazer. It’s one of my favorite pieces, because of its soft texture, cozy fit and vibrant color. I’m not usually an orange fan, but I went through a phase where I loved it and I still don’t regret this buy.

Lovers In The Parking Lot

I present to you another OOTD, this time right after work. (Well, right after a nap right after work.) The sun was going down, so I was forced to shoot on my friend’s front porch, which is why there’s an assortment of cars behind me. The setting reminded me of Solange’s song, so I figured I’d just go with it. My top, which is really a shirtdress, is from Target. My cobalt capris are from Target, by way of Goodwill. And my shoes are from Forever 21, from forever ago. (Get it? Ha!) I wasn’t wearing any special jewelry, and I found my sunglasses somewhere randomly. (more…)
