Late Fall Chic: Denim on Denim


A Sunshine Sunday filled with Blessings


Hey All, I hope you are enjoying your fall so far.  I just love those fall days when its sunny, cool, breezy and showcases its beauty to the fullest.

Express Your TRUE Self!


I just love this quote! On a day like this when history is made, it so important to listen to heart & Be Yourself! Its also a great day to reflect and live in the blessings & freedoms that God has given us.  Its a great day to be an AMERICAN!

Worn Magazine Party: The Transport Issue




I decided to go classic chic when I attended the Worn Magazine Party this Fall. I wore my trench coat with black slacks and a bright colored scarf.

Could you please be my Blog Photograher, And I will be yours?



One of the things I love about blogging is that it’s a close knit community that wants to help each other out and see each other succeed in the wonderful world of fashion blogging. My friend Jenny (sidenote: check out her blog Au Bon Prix) my fellow MBHS graduate and alumna, (Go Blair Blazers!) asked me to take pictures for her blog  and as a camera less blogger I happily agreed. So we set a date, it was a beautiful sunny day and with two outfit changes we decided the location would be Rockville Town Square.  For one reason only, the easy access to changing rooms in our favorite local boutique Red Hue Boutique.

Red Blazer: Two Ways



As the weather cools down and FALL begins, I am so excited about wearing my favorite Red Blazer with many more outfits this fall. Below are two ways I styled the Red Blazer last Fall and early Spring. Wearing something more than once is when I get the most creative with my style. I am so excited to see what this season will bring. Are you?

Inspiration: Nelson Mandela's Birthday



In Honor of Nelson Mandela's 94th Birthday, I decided to share this passage he quoted in his 1994 Inaugural Speech called "Our Deepest Fear" by Marianne Williamson.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

May this quote inspire you to shine Brightly and be who you are. 

Happy Birthday Mandela! May God Bless you always....

Weekend Adventures: Sightseeing & The White House




With a family like mine that comes from all over the world to visit you in Washington DC, Sightseeing becomes a regular outing activity. I have become very familiar with showing my family members the main attractions of the District of Columbia. For this weekend adventure, my sister and I were hosting my grandmother. She wanted to see the White House and where the President lives here in the capital.



(Outfit: Purple T-shirt: the Gap, Cardigan: Ted Baker, Sunglasses: H&M, Scarf: the Gap, Sandals: Zara)

For this weekend adventure, I decided to wear something colorful and unique. I paired my mint colored jeans with a purple shirt and a purple cardigan and flats for comfort as walking is an essential part of the day. I love pairing different bright colors together into one outfit, it makes so much more fun especially in the summer time.

Over the years it has been evolving into something better I have currently been living in the neutrals and loving it, and now my style is embracing patterns and prints. I'm wearing this orange floral blouse that I wore with simple black skinnys and basic black heels. This outfit is the perfect transition into the print and pattern look for Spring.
