I know that it is getting colder, but I would still wear this outfit in the fall. I would add some opaque tights and some booties to make this work.
For this outfit, I was motivated by Mimi Ikon’s video. I loved the options that Mimi Ikon’s styling for a chambray top.
Top: Old Navy // Skirt: New York & Company // Shoes: J. Crew // Necklace: J. Crew

I had no idea what was going on that day, but I got TONS of compliments. Whether it was my hair – which I thought looked a hot mess – or my sweatshirt, everyone seemed to like the look I was going for. That definitely made me happy because I didn’t know want to get out of bed or go to work at all! Definitely one of those days!
Chic Tip: If you are wearing something looser fit, for example my sweatshirt, wear something more tailored on bottom. It will still give you the appearance of a shape! (:
I am not going to lie. This months has been rough. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve lost a lot of motivation. Maybe my recent Vegas trip didn’t help in my motivation.
I have been doing Zumba and that is a lot of fun. I mean, zumba is always a lot of fun. But since I recently got out of a sew-in, I have been less likely to work out. It could be that I don’t want to sweat out my hair since I straighten it, but I still need to figure out a way to work out. Lately I have been watching natural hair videos on YouTube and they have been a great inspiration. I would like to see more videos on how women of color or women with kinky hair work out and still maintain beautiful hairstyles.
All in all, I didn’t work out that much.
I have not been eating very well in August and the beginning of September. Going to Vegas and eating all buffet style food didn’t necessarily help.
Calories Consumed: I don’t want to know!
It’s not about dieting, it’s about having a healthy lifestyle. This lifestyle is definitely a journey more than a destination. Check out my other fitness update posts!
I have been to my fair share of bachelorette parties. I wanted to share with you, future brides, bridesmaids, maids of honor, etc., that you can still have fun with a bachelorette party without breaking the bank!
