The secret is out, sneakers aren’t just for men anymore. I have always been drawn towards any sort of masculine trend for women. Sneakers are very familiar to me, as I am dating a “sneaker head”, other wise known as DF. Dapper Fellow loves sneakers like we love ALL shoes. He has a large influence on my day to day fashion even though he probably doesn’t think so.
Pants-Nasty Gal, Shoes-MIA, Sweater-Zara, but I looove this one, Jacket-Q, similar here, Sunglasses-Tory Burch, Bag-Halogen, similar here.
Have a TERRIFIC TUESDAY!

You all should know by now my love for all things ASHLEY from the Shine Project. Last week she put on an awesome event geared towards a “ladies beauty night out!” Not only did this event have amazing rooms where ladies could get their hair, nails, and eyebrow’s done, but there was also a silent auction to win fabulous prizes. Considering my last run at a silent auction, I opted out of bidding. Haha. It was a great turnout and the best part was hearing about the work that Ashley and her camp are doing in all of these kids lives!!!
Ashley and I. See my outfit details here!
Hope you make yourself a great day!

My day to day work routine is very casual, so when the weekend comes I cannot wait for any reason to get dressed up. This is what I wore to Ashley, from the Shine Project’s Beauty Night Out! (I wil be posting more about this fab event over the weekend!!!) I can’t get enough of this Prabal Gurung Dress (originally debuted here). I seriously wish they made it in 5 different patterns. So light and definitely one of those pieces you can literally throw on and in a matter of minutes you have a finished look. It was the perfect little frock for a night out with my main girl, Mama Black! <3
Dress-Prabal for Target, Necklaces-Forever 21 & TJ Maxx (combo last seen here!), Shoes-c/o Just Fab, Bag-Halogen (I want this one!!!), Cuff-TJ Maxx
I hope you make today a great one!

Good Morning loves! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I always look forward to weekends where Dapper Fellow and I can just relax, catch up on sleep and enjoy a short break from everything. But, lately It seems like my life has been non-stop. You know those weekend days where you are up and ready by 8am as if it was a week day and don’t return until it’s dark? This was a perfect all day outfit, comfortable, easy, and put together!! My day started with a Woman’s Tea with my mama and some of my favorite ladies! Be sure to come back tomorrow where I will be sharing more about the organization who put on this Vintage Women’s Tea!

TGIF!!!! I am attempting to take full advantage of all of my sweaters/jackets/normal clothes before we enter the point of no return aka: 100+ degree weather for 3 months. Earlier this week I shared with you my 4 must have blazers and today we are talking leather jackets. Similar to a good blazer, a good leather jacket is essential for every woman’s wardrobe! Leather is trickier for women of all sizes because tailoring isn’t an option. That’s why I recommend investing in a ONE good, quality, fitted leather jacket. Although the price may initially scare you off, (they normally start around $300-$500) I can assure you that it is a piece you will wear FOREVER!!! Along with this red one you may remember my black leather jacket, a common repeat offender on AVC seen here here here here and here!!! (Can you tell I am obsessed with it?!?!) I purchased both of these jackets on sale via Nordstrom Anniversary Sale SIX YEARS AGO!!! Sooooo worth it and they have only gotten softer and more comfortable with age.
Shirt/Shorts-Forever 21, Jacket-William Rast (similar here and a more affordable option here), Shoes-Zara, Bag-Vintage, Sunglasses-House of Harlow, Necklace-Nordstrom rack, Bow Ring-Hearts
Enjoy your Friday friends!

You can never go wrong with a classic blazer. I feel as though every woman needs the following blazers in their closets: 1 black, 1 white/navy/tan/grey, 1 striped or two toned, and 1 floral or bright colored solid. You will find that they go w/EVERYTHING you own!!!! When I first laid eyes on this vintage blazer I instantly thought of Kate Middleton! So obvi it was coming home with me. To play on this classic/vintage combination I added all vintage accessories.
Pants-Blue Essence (similar), Shirt-Zara, Shoes-Taryn Rose, Clutch/Blazer-Vintage, Sunnies-D&G, Earrings/Necklace/Ring/Broche/Watch-Vintage
Have a fabulous Wednesday!
