Birdie Chic • Chambray Floral

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.

September Fitness Update

Get Up

 

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.

Eat UP

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!

Birdie Chic • All White Everything

I hate being confined to rules!  I love white!  I like the way it looks – it makes everything appear to be cleaner than it actually is, right?

I did wear this on a summer day, but I would totally rock this during the fall too!  I really liked how everything came together.  My Banana Republic ballet flats are a nice pop of color!

Birdie Chic • Shopping the Closet

I mentioned in a previous Birdie Chic that it is important to shop the closet.  New combinations could mean a totally new outlook on your outfit!  This is another great example!

The safari/cargo jacket has been featured SEVERAL times, but it is purely amazing!

Birdie Chic • No Pictures Please

Another picture where I was feeling myself a little too strongly!  I totally do know what the occasion was but I have to say I like this ensemble!

The gold details on the purse, shoes, necklace and jacket help tie the look together surprisingly!

Sometimes you just got to bust out and try something new!
